We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Hotel DeBrett. Everything was perfect - the room, breakfast, the staff and the location. We can't say enough good things about it! We'll be back again. W and S Swayne

Stayed four nights here on a long weekend to Auckland. When l first saw the room l was a bit puzzled as it was like a flash back to the 1950's....and that is exactly what it is meant to be like!! The deco really warmed on us and we really came to like it. This is not a normal hotel.... More

I have found a real gem of a hotel here...small, boutique, with great style and personal service. Right in the heart of the Auckland CBD, it's a hotel that I would happily return to for work or for a weekend away with my wife. The rooms are spacious, quiet and decorated with style. Well done guys!

Had a lovely little staycation here (we actually live a short distance away, avoiding neighbours party). The room was beautifully furnished, not huge but certainly big enough with a gorgeous bathroom through french doors. Our room was between the lift shaft and the road, but is obviously well insulated as noise was not an issue. The complementary pre-dinner drinks in... More

We stayed a weekend at Hotel DeBrett on a romantic get away from all. Perfect location as this is the only boutique hotel in Auckland CBD providing all the amenities other five star hotels do but without the crowds and large spaces. You are in a different world, away from everything but still in city centre, everything Auckland can offer... More

My family recently had an evening meal at Hotel DeBrett. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and although the restaurant was very busy , we were served promptly and received great service from the staff. We highly recommend this hotel for a great dining experience.

Do not think twice about booking at DeBrett the first or next time you stay in Auckland. DeBrett is definitely a different stay from your usual brand name hotels. The charm, history and vibe can be felt from the time you walk into the lobby, and continue as you walk the stairs, halls, rooms and public areas. We loved the... More

My husband and I chose the DeBrett for an overnight in the city based upon trip advisor reviews. What a great experience! Small but beautifully done with real attention to detail. We stayed in boutique suite 1.6 and had no issue with street noise at all. The bed was really comfortable and complete with luxurious bedding and plenty of pillows.... More

stayed for a couple days on a work trip. Fantastic experience, and much better than the 'chain' options found in every city. will definitely come back again, even just for a weekend to stay in the hotel (and shop on high street, and eat nearby).

This room overlooks the inside atrium of the hotel. Not my favorite kind of concept, no fresh air and no outside views, I wish we had known earlier I would not have taken this room. I need he fresh air and the view of the street or the city. The hotel otherwise is brilliant. Very Art Deco and very tastefully... More
