This hotel has a buzzing energy, from it's decor and lovely staff. Great central location, no views though. Brilliant can-do/efficient service. Vibrant rooms, mod fusion decor. Free continental breakfast has a limited selection but one could pay for cooked a la carte breakfast or head out to the many cafés near by. A small and lovely hotel overall; mainly because... More

Very friendly welcome at a very early hour. We were given a lovely big room and staff were very attentive and helpful in preparing an additional sofa bed for us. Lovely bathroom with a huge tub. Breakfast is really good and the free cocktail half an hour very good too Location could not be better. Right in the hero of... More

Read the reviews and you have to conclude that this is the perfect boutique hotel, so for some, it is. But the reality for us was: No windows open in this hotel. Our room looked out (out?) on to the dining room, so you couldn't even see the sky. The air was polluted by heavily scented candles, and even when... More

Just spent three days at this hip, well-located small hotel. Loved the friendly and helpful staff. Colorful, cool decor. Excellent bar and breakfast. Loved it on all fronts. Thanks Hotel DeBrett! We give you our highest recommendation and hope to return some day.

What a divine stay we had here. My boyfriend and I stayed here for our birthday(we share the same day). They wrote us a lovely birthday card and put it in the room for us. We loved the honesty bar and the selection of movies they had on offer, which were free to borrow. The bathroom was amazing and I... More

Altogether I had 3 nights here and was hugely comfortable. The reception staff are outstanding, very professional and yet warm and welcoming. I had one dinner here and it was very special, beautifully presented even though there were two large groups and all other tables occupied. Can thoroughly recommend the DeBrett.

A lovely weekend stay for our anniversary, this boutique hotel was busy with the small cocktail bar full and restaurant booked for pre Christmas groups. Glad we had booked a table in De Brett's Kitchen in advance on our first night, pre dinner drinks in the drawing room (again busy) but delightful and encouraged us to chat with other visitors,...

A return, this time for a very early dinner. We selected from the 5:30pm fixed pre theatre menu which has a couple of items off the main menu available later in the evening. $45 for two courses and a glass of wine. Ordered own own bottle but liked the idea, the food was very enjoyable. Would I go back -... More

After an overnight flight, checking into Hotel DeBrett makes it all worthwhile. This charming and cosy boutique hotel makes you feel right at home once you step in. Not forgetting the warm welcome we received from the front desk girls who made check-in easy and quick. There wasn't much of a view from our hotel room but the comfortable bed,... More
