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

Lovely hotel..it was quiet and we were able to walk everywhere easily. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, advising which exhibits to see at the museum, and call us a cab. The breakfast was ok, but the restaurant was excellent for dinner. Comfortable beds and wonderful service. Very pricey, but we wanted luxury our first night as we... More

Michelle and her staff have created a beautiful boutique hotel experience. The friendly service was outstanding, the rooms decorated beautifully, restaurant and bars very good food and service and the general ambience of the hotel is both relaxing and stylish. Highly recommend this hotel for an overnighter or a few nights in Auckland, you won't be disappointed! Love DeBrett. Michelle... More

I knew we were in for a good stay when driver of the airport shuttle bus told us this was the best hotel in Auckland. My boyfriend took me here for my 30th birthday and we had a small suite with a spacious seating area, smaller bedroom (but a huge bed) and a beautifully appointed bathroom with a bath that... More

DeBrett is a different kind of hotel. In fact, does not feel like a hotel at all. From the moment I walked in the first time the feeling was very personal, very looked after. Reception is more than helpful and quests are escorted to their rooms. 5 stars. Everything down to tiny details in DeBrett is tasteful (IMHO) designed and... More

This small intimate inner city hotel is such a treat in contrast to the big chain hotels. The retro fit with the furniture and general decor had a feel good factor. Our room overlooked the street, but was not noisy. It was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom well appointed with a tick for having the toilet closed off. Luxurious... More

This small boutique in central Auckland was a treat. We were upgraded to a duplex suite which was quiet, spacious and had a fabulous retro feeling. The bed upstairs was comfy and huge with excellent quality linen. The bathroom another retro delight and massive with a huge bath and walk in shower. Downstairs was a comfortable lounge and large TV.... More

This hotel was a great find when I was looking for a hotel to surprise my partner with for his birthday. Our room was a delight, very spacious with wonderful unique details. The bed was very comfy and a bath so deep that just had to be soaked in. The staff were fantastic and very helpful and even lent us... More
