Our suite had a sitting room with desk, sofa, armchair and a cupboard. It was separated from the bedroom by a sliding door. The bedroom, had a wardrobe with doors that refused to stay closed and a king sized bed, which virtually filled the room. Both these rooms had wall mounted TV. The bathroom was good, with a large tub,... More

All the staff at the hotel made our stay very special. In all regards they attended to our needs and made our stay incredibly relaxing. The staff in the restaurant especially gave excellent service and the food was perfect.

The title describes what, I think, is the epitome of this Hotel as it doesn't have street appeal and yet, once inside it shows it's delightful character. Our room is more than adequate, and that doesn't mean it's small a very comfortable king size bed with enough space to swing the proverbial cat, a very modern, and fully functioning bathroom...

The entrance is tiny and very disappointing on arrival. However the staff are delightful and extremely helpful. The rooms are small but nicely equipped and well furnished. The restaraunt is spacious and food delicious. It is very well positioned for reaching the city. We spent one day in Davenport crossing over on the ferry. It is a lovely place to... More

Our room had a couch, bathroom with separate toilet stall and comfortable bed. The service at the front desk was outstanding. Decent wifi (5 Mb up and down) is included for no charge. There were some public areas were... More

We arrived at this hotel after four weeks on the road in a camper van. Bliss from the start. We were shown to our room three hours before the official check in and found it equipped with everything you could possibly want. The staff were welcoming and attentive. We were invited for a welcome drink where we could mingle and... More

A great location, easy walk to port area and shopping. Hotel staff were very helpful. Room was clean, fresh, bright and lovely....beautiful sheets too. We only stayed one night but would have opted for more if we had the time.

I found the Hotel DeBrett as a recommendation in the New Zealand Lonely Planet guide. I was looking for an upmarket boutique style hotel to stay for three evenings. The hotel is very centrally located in the city, you can walk to the central shopping district in minutes and additionally to the harbour area in approximately 10 minutes. The hotel... More
