I am mixed on Hotel DeBrett. I booked online and pre-paid through Expedia, and when I arrived check-in was quick and easy. The friendly woman at the front desk took me up to my room, which was clean, comfortable and of good size. After she left, I did notice this room overlooked the interior, which is normally fine...but not in... More

My wife and I stayed at this stunning hotel mid last week.....a gift from our family which was much appreciated. The hotel oozes charm and a great ambience. Staff at reception truly made our stay special, many thanks to all the lovely girls. On a downside though, but have not let this taint our stay, we found in our bathroom... More

My husband and I stayed here for the start of our two week trip to New Zealand and Fiji. We arrived by early morning flight to Auckland from the USA. Although the hotel was unable to accommodate any early morning check-in, they provided us access to a private salon for hotel guests only and expedited our room. By the time... More

Hotel DeBrett is a beautifully restored old building with plenty of charm and character. Situated right amongst the shops and with great bars and restaurants of its own, this hotel is our first choice when we stay in Auckland. The rooms are lovely and the drawing room where guests can sit, read, talk and pour themselves a drink from the... More

We stayed at HDB for one night over Easter - and would have happily stayed a week! The room was immaculate (though the bathroom tiles made me a little dizzy!), the meals were utterly delicious (had there not been other diners, I could have quite possibly licked the plate), the bar and sitting room were absolutely fantastic. A definite recommendation... More

I stayed in Hotel DeBrett recently and wasn't sure what to expect. Normally I prefer to stay in slightly larger establishments preferably on a high floor away from the noise of the city. But the other Trip Advisor reviews convinced me to stay here in downtown Auckland. I have never been happier trusting other reviewers. The hotel decor is top... More

We stayed in a one bedroom suite here for one night in February. The exterior does not look impressive but once inside it exceeded our expectations. A very spacious comfortable suite with a view down to the harbour. Double glazing so good that city centre traffic could not be heard even during the rush hour. Staff very helpful and efficient....

Great hotel in the heart of Auckland. Service was great with very friendly staff. The rooms were great with free wifi. Everything was renovated very tastefully while retaining the retro vibe. I had an inside facing room which was very quiet and faced the atrium in the restaurant. I had the best sleep during my stay at this hotel. Only... More

This is a small hotel that has perfected excellent service and lovely touches throughout. Right in the center of Auckland, the hotel is quiet, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the common areas are special. We enjoyed meeting staff and other guests in the library for drinks each evening. Breakfasts are very nice and the small dining room is... More
