This is probably one of the best hotels we have stayed in over 50 years of traveling (since I was a baby). From the welcoming front desk staff to the help finding somewhere our gluten intolerant daughter could eat dinner (they had gluten free bread for her at the complimentary continental breakfast), to the before dinner complimentary cocktails, to the...

We stayed at DeBrett for two nights at a classic room which overlooked the hotel’s roof atrium. The hotel’s location is great; only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, theatres, the Britomart and the Viaduct harbour. The room was extremely spacious, modern, with a writing desk and seating area, a plush carpet, VERY comfortable bed and a huge bathroom with... More

Stayed at debrett for 3 nights after 4 weeks of travelling through new zealand. Absolute the best stay of our trip and even at least in our top 3 ever! Very nicely decorated, designed with feeling for esthetics and details. All staff really is there to make your stay perfect and it was perfect! All that on a top location... More

We stayed at the DeBrett for two nights (Dec 29th and 30th), and while we enjoyed the overall experience, we did have some mixed feelings. The staff were uniformly friendly, helpful, and responsive, but there are a number of intrinsic design flaws that made it not really worth the cost (and maybe we were just paying holiday rates and it's...

We stayed here at the start of our holiday in November. Really friendly welcome at reception. Our room was extremely comfortably and spacious. The bathroom and facilities were some of the largest we have ever seen. It was really nice to be invited down at 6.00pm for evening drinks by the owner, where we had the opportunity to meet with...

Stayed here at the start of a New Zealand trip in December and were impressed from the moment we walked in. Really friendly welcome at reception and personal tour - felt like we were being shown around a home that we were staying in rather than a hotel. Our room was small but gorgeous - plush carpet, bedding that was... More

Stayed at DeBrett twice in December. First time it was a fairly small studio room, while the second time was a larger studio at the corner of high street and shortland street. Everything in the hotel is highly enjoyable - heavily designed guest rooms/restaurant/bars, friendly staff, great continental breakfast, pre-dinner drinks at the warm and beautiful drawing room, and great...

Our first stop in New Zealand. Got in from the airport even before noon but they already had our room ready for us. What a relief after a 13-hour-flight from L.A. - a 2-hour-nap was what was needed before going out to explore this nice city. The girls at the reception were all VERY nice and helpful. A nice boutique-hotel... More
