This hotel is an art deco wonder. The location in the city center is perfect for your explorations. Lots to do in the neighborhood and easy to get around once you learn the bus routes. The rooms are lovely and the bathroom tiling is a wonder. Continental breakfast was uninspired but adequate. Front desk staff is very helpful. Nice to... More

Two things keeping this from being a 5 star review: our room was the first off the elevator and the first behind the security door (I think it was #201). So it seems like we heard every up and down, and every passage to our side of the hallway. And the free continental breakfast was inadequate... perhaps designed to push... More

We stayed four nights at Debrett and we loved it. Very friendly staff at the front desk and the dining room. A wonderful room with a comfortable bed and large bathroom with a great shower. The continental breakfast was very good with tasty breads and rolls. The location is excellent. Close to the port and Sky Tower. There were many... More

Our room was very nice, particularly the bathrooms. There are not many options in Auckland, so this is a good one. The Continental breakfast was excellent as well. The location of the hotel is good as well. Long story short, not an amazing hotel by international standards, but its the best bet in Auckland

One of the most welcoming hotels we have ever stayed in. Everyone from the ladies at the front desk to the waitresses in the restaurant go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and exceptionally quiet for a central city location. The beds are luxurious and super comfortable. The bathroom is large and... More

Had reserved a suite at the Hotel DeBrett and was disappointed that flight delays had us checking in much later than I'd like, impeding us from really enjoying the facility. The hotel itself is well-located and nicely furnished. Front desk staff was spartan both at (late) check-in and early checkout, but friendly after some short delays. We found our suite... More

We have stayed in Wonderful lodges in NZ. This was complete difference. Friendly service...that was all. Very simple breakfast en small rooms....no other Experience in the hotel. Mini-bar was to simple and we must pay dubble for the laundry, because iT was weekend.... I think at least one star to much...

We enjoyed an overnight stay at the Hotel DeBrett - it was stop 1 of our honeymoon last year. After a long 12-hour, non-stop flight, Hotel DeBrett was a welcome haven! We enjoyed the delicious breakfast, and our room was spacious, clean, and and chic. The location can't be beat either!

This has to be the best place we dined in Auckland. We went at about 11.30am and the place was empty, and the courtyard was amazing! It's like a slice of Italy (I'm guessing....I've never been there) right in the centre of bustling Auckland. I didn't take any photos but the others shared on Tripadvisor show how cute this courtyard... More
