We stayed for one night here and had room 12. The room was spacious and clean. We even got coffee, tea and milk provided so we could help ourselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all time. Furthermore the location was quite handy as it is not far away from the city center. The possibility to do laundry... More

We stayed one night at unit 7, which is a two-bedroom unit with its own spa pool and private barbecue area. There is a space for one car just outside the unit, and additional car parks or boat parking around the back of the property or on the street. The unit was clean, the size adequate, the kitchen basic. The... More

Spent two nights at Catelli's and we were not disappointed. Fairly standard sized unit but well equipped and lovely and clean. A very quiet location yet only minutes from the lake front and about 10 minutes ( walk ) from the CBDS. Thanks Darrel and Bruce

We unfortunately had to cancel our stay here at the last minute due to ill health. The owners were very understanding and accommodating and did not make a stressful situation more stressful. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel as they put themselves out for us and we haven't even stayed yet...... what will they be like when we... More

The staff at this hotel were very helpful as we arrived quite early and they were very happy to give us keys to our room. They also helped organise a lake cruise at very short notice. The rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. The location of the hotel is ideal. Just a short walk to the town centre and an... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Catelli's. The standard of our unit was every bit as good as the first time. The two-bedroom unit we were given and very well presented and everything we need was provided for a pleasant stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure our...

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...
