We arrived in the middle of the night after two long flights, so we were happy someone was waiting for us and checked us in right away. The room was quite big, nicely decorated and clean.The bathroom was great as well and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, which was a relief after 22 hours on a... More

Oddly designed hotel - our room had now windows apart from ones that opened on to the restaurant! The doors in our room seemed badly designed too - meaning you constantly have to squeeze round doors. However room was clean and bed was comfy.

This is an absolutely brilliant, well-appointed and completely friendly hotel in Auckland. It is incredibly well located so you can really get anywhere in the city with complete ease. The restaurant in the hotel is also top notch and well-worth the visit. Our room, a two-level suite, was beautifully decorated, perfectly maintained and, though the hotel is in the city,... More

Stayed here for a night last week while working in Auckland. To start, the De Brett is in a great location for the CBD and High Street. Also, some of the best restaurants around. Friendly staff, fantastic room - modern funky decoration. The only drawback is parking outside, very tight and limited and busy. But in fairness, once stopped safely,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were absolutely delighted. Staff was super friendly, the rooms wonderful and the restaurant delicious. The bed we slept in, was easily one of the best beds I ever slept in. A nice touch was their 'drawing room' where wine was served in the company of other guests.

Stayed here in January 2015 with work, the staff were so kind and easy to talk to. They went out of their way to help when a colleague fell ill. My room was incredible and the bed was so comfortable. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and they have live music on a Sunday evening which is really nice. Great... More

Great location and friendly staff. Room size Ok and ideal to look into the business premises across the road and them to look at you. Think I heard the people who arrived after midnight, or anyone who used the lift during the night, someone has to be near the lift motor. Enjoyed the pre-dinner drinks as a pleasant way to... More

This small fascinating hotel in Auckland was my first stop in my New Zealand trip. We arrived after midnight, but we had informed hotel early about our late arrival and it was no problem at all. The decoration of the hotel is quite unique and very fancy. The elevator is full of small mirrors and the effect is quite amazing.... More

Fun colours everywhere. Unique Furniture. Great size rooms. Good wifi. Great bedding. A breakfast that is included-buffet which is small but has everything you will want.... More

I hate staying in the chain hotels - they don't have any character to it. I've found DeBrett hotel via Mr and Mrs Smith website - and I was not disappointed! Loved the room (Boutique Suite), loved the design of the hotel in general. Location is very central - a perfect spot to start exploring the city of Auckland.
