We stayed at Catellis last year and the weekend gone and once again an awesome stay. The staff are so friendly and helpful, great location, and the rooms are so nice, clean and spacious. This time we stayed in the 2bedroom unit which we will book again. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - a home away from... More

We just wanted a quiet motel not on the main road away from traffic noise- it was wet so no need to have a view. Plenty of motels to choose from in this area and selected this one. Friendly host showed us room alternatives and we took the bigger one with a spa and separate room with a good firm... More

I have never stayed here before and being late driving through Taupo took a chance and picked a one with the lights still on to stay the night... The motel carpark is spacious and the little cottage style rooms around the edge are ideal. When I walked in the room it is very clean, all the things you need with... More

We are currently staying in Catelli's and the room and location are great. We love the spa bath too. However the best part of our stay has been the service from the manager who has bent over backwards to help with my numerous requests for WiFi help as I had the strange requirement of having to send numerous very large...

The hosts were very friendly and accommodatiing. The unit was spacious and comfortable. we had a spa pool unit and used it everyday. It was in a great location and it would be a 1 minute walk to the lake and about 5 minutes to the shops. Very close to a few restaurants and mini golf and many lakeside activities.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in March and found Catelli's to be very clean, quiet and close to the main area for restaurants and shopping and just a short walk to the lake. Perfect. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed, TV and free WiFi. Helpful information from the owner regarding places to see and how to get there... More

This is the place to stay. Terry was a wonderful host and loves the place he lives in. He shared a whole host of activities we could do in a short afternoon and we found them well within our driving ability. Our room and the location to town was ideal. Clean, quiet and beautifully decorated this motel offers so much.... More

No street noise as motel is on a side road but still easy and close enough to town center. Wold stay again, also a... More

Made a booking a week before leaving and got a room which exactly fitted our requirements. Clean, quiet, roomy, plenty of cooking utensils and a very happy, obliging host. ( Only met Terry....he must have had Kris hidden away). My only minor gripe, which I meant to mention to the Boss before we left, was the toilet paper was soooooo... More
