“You have to stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you want the true KIWI experience and get the comfort, attention and the rest that you need, this is beyond a shadow of a doubt the place to stay. Wendy and Dennis pay a LOT of attention to detail, and will go overboard to make sure your stay is the best. I have been all over the world, and this has been by far one of the best stays for an entire week that I have ever had. Oh yeh, you can stay at a five star hotel, but why pay give star prices when you can get the same five star service and more here. Very comfortable beds, fantastic temperature control that you can adjust. I could hardly even hear the ac unit working it was so quiet. A nice few minute walk to beautiful Lake Taupo, then along the way several more minutes to shopping, restaurants, and whatever else your heart desires. What a fantastic place!!!! You WILL NOT be dissapointed!

Very convenient to Taupo shops and easy walk to the lake. Very clean and tidy and comfortable. Good parking spaces outside the rooms. Good kitchen facilities for light meals or snacks. Lovely cooked breakfast.

Another lovely stay at Catelli's. Super friendly greeting, warm, clean and cosy rooms - this is always the way at Catellis and the reason we love staying here. Our kids love the selection of DVDs at reception, and borrowing books to read before bed. We will definitely be back and look forward to catching up with the friendly Catelli's crew again.
Thanks!

This is the second year we have stayed at Catellis in taupo for the annual cycle race.
The rooms have been of the highest standards and always very clean and tidy .
The hosts Wendy and Dennis make us feel very welcome and always make sure our stay is stress free , they are willing to organise any trip we need.
I would recommend if you need to stay in taupo for any reason this place won't let you down.

Very impressed by the friendly reception, availability of free movie rentals, clean and well maintained rooms. Great central location. The rose bush at our motel unit front door and the fresh milk when we arrived were lovely touches. Not fancy but great quality comfortable mattresses and quiet.

Friendly reception.
Everything was spotlessly clean and in good working order.
There was a nice selection of good quality hot drinks in the room.
Superb breakfast, especially the sausages.

We'll be back

Our family of 5 being 2 adults and 3 under 3 stayed at Catelli's in Taupo, we arrived late afternoon on a cold winters day and found the motel warm and the owners could not do enough for us. Toys to keep out kids busy, porta cots for 15mo twins and an esky for a bath for the boys lol. Kitchen making facilities, tv and a little lounge, what more could you ask for.
Close to town for dinner and a supermarket 2 mins walk away for essentials.
Thanks again for your hospitality.
Sheryl, Shane and the boys
