This is actually unusual for me to write a review while still at the hotel. This one deserves it. Where do I begin? The quaintness, cozines, chic aura ...? The hotel has a restaurant and a bar right inside the premises. I mean right where you would expect guest rooms. Despite these uniqueness, you do not hear a thing from... More

I would love to go back to Auckland purely to stay in this hotel again, and for longer this time. The hotel is quirky, fun, colourful, trendy, perfectly situated, friendly staff, gorgeously decorated, the food was delicious.. Definitely stay here if you are going to Auckland. We were lucky to meet Michelle, the owner, and had a drink with her... More

We recently travelled to Auckland to work for a couple of days. Staying in this centrally located hotel was great. Rooms are uber chic and the bathrooms are outstanding with a lovely deep bath to soak up the days sightseeing. Pre-dinner drink is on offer in the drawing room and their restaurant has been voted in the Top 50. Continental... More

When we arrived to the hotel the receptionist was very nice to us and walked us in to our room. First night was in a classic room and then two nights in a very very nice loft suite with a city view. If you want to book a loft suite with stairs you have to mention that in an e-mail.... More

This hotel is unusual for Auckland city at this level, its not a chain hotel and has a nice boutique feel about it. The breakfast service was unfortunately poor. We waited 40 minutes for food then gave up and asked it to be sent to our room as we needed to pack to leave but other than that the hotel... More

This boutique hotel is nestled in a laneway in the heart of Auckland. The rooms and service were lovely and welcoming. Just what you expect of boutique style hotels - and they do it well. Would absolutely stay here again. The bar is quaint but they also have sofa style lounging next to the restaurant. The breakfast was limited -... More

Stayed in this hotel in a business trip to Auckland. The hotel is great, rooms perfect and the staff is very good specially the ones that accommodated me and my colleague for coffee and a room to work at our arrival. We arrived at the hotel at 5:30 AM (after a 20 hour trip) in the morning and obviously no... More

Sincere young staff made us feel so appreciated. The pillows and bed fabulous. Loved the drawing room for complimentary drink where we met some interesting fellow travellers. Magnificent food in comfortable, quirky dining room. The total experience 100% unique. Well done Hotel DeBrett.

After staying in a conference hotel prior this hotel was a godsend. Helpful checkin, modern room with amazing bath, quirky furniture and two TVs - perfect for us travelling with our 5 year old. Beautiful products in the bathroom. Breakfast room inspiring and cooked breakfast great. All inclusive continental breakfast v basic - would expect more at this price. No... More

Room was beautiful and well designed. Bed is super comfortable. Bathroom is awesome. The only thing that let the place down were a couple of the receptionists. Two in particular were really rude and snobby. Would rather stay somewhere else in future not to have to deal with them. Restaurant staff were awesome.
