We spent two nights in March and three nights in April in this small hotel right in the centre of Auckland. Although, after reading reviews, I had written to them explaining exactly what we wanted – a top-floor room giving on the street side – we were never given what we expected. First time, we were on the court side,... More

I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Everything is done to the highest standard from the finish to the service. First impressions were excellent right from check in and this continued throughout our stay. Only quibble would be that on both nights the restaurant was closed for private functions and I'm sure had... More

We were treating ourselves for our 10 year wedding anniversary but it was a last minute booking (2 days prior). Despite this, the reservation team were very accommodating of our request for a classic room with external windows. The double glazing was very effective, not a sound from High Street one floor below us. Room 1.4 was the ideal boutique... More

We arrived at 7 am after our flight from San Francisco, anticipating a long wait for our room. After refreshments in the lounge and in less than 2 hours we had our room, which was most comfortable, the bed was amazing and the en suite facilities superb.The central position is ideal and within easy reach of all the main sites....

We had such a good stay at Hotel DeBrett! We were celebrating my husband's 60th birthday by going to the Rod Stewart concert at the Vector Arena and this was the ideal place to be. We stayed in a Boutique Room (2.6) was so well furnished, lovely colour scheme - a feeling of luxury perfect for the occasion 😃. We... More

The hotel and staff are charming. The edgy interior is attractive and the old buildings surrounding a central atrium have been cleverly renovated. We booked a studio, which was a small lounge and a bedroom. But.......the lounge room looked out directly onto the court area of the bar which was on the same level, patrons sitting at tables and general... More

Hotel Debrett is right on High Street and is an easy walk to the shopping and eating areas of the CBD, Skycity, the viaduct and Britomart. Despite being in such a busy location, our street view suite was very quiet thanks to the extra glazing. We loved the funky decor- it was nice to be somewhere that had some colour... More

We stayed 4 nights in a Classic Room with a street view. We never heard street noise. The bed was excellent. Our friends were in a Classic room as well. Although they were similar, the floor plans differed, so each felt unique. They are not large, but well designed to make the most of the space. There were many options... More

Friendly staff, quiet rooms, wonderful design, great atmosphere, fantastic bed, good breakfast, perfect location. Usually I am a bit suspicious on reading the remark 'boutique hotel', because it tends to mean: small place for too much money. But this hotel totally rocks it. Would definately stay there again.

Perfect weekend away. DeBretts is centrally located offering a great access to the CBD in Auckland. Reception and waitstaff were attentive and professional. Every request was promptly handled and dining recommendations hit the mark. We loved the Happy Hour in the lounge, hosted in a social manner we the opportunity to interact with other guests. DeBretts provided the foundation for... More
