We stayed here for 7 nights. - it is truly amazing. the staff are SO nice and friendly. The restaurant and bar was a really nice feature of the hotel. The bed was possibly the most comfy bed I have ever slept in. The shower - is amazing. This hotel will not disappoint.

I was recently in Auckland for business and some pleasure (the Rugby World Cup). Previous reviews of min have shown me to be "particular" about my requirements for good customer service. Hotel DeBrett has exceeded all such expectations. Check in - friendly and helpful. Housekeeping - excellent attention to detail. Rooms - funky and importantly quiet. Restaurant - excellent service...

Style not to our taste but very clean excellent quality rooms, beds with expensive linen and a very good bathroom. We had a lovely corner room that was quiet even though it was right next to a busy road. Buffet breakfast was not brilliant. Waiting staff were very helpful and on the ball. The reception staff asked us if we... More

Extremely friendly service and well-kept facility. Our "classic room" was the perfect size for two people. We appreciated having access to a library with internet. Would definitely stay at Hotel deBrett again.

The staff are friendly and cheerful which makes it a great place to visit.PS- the bar and dining room are also tops. Certainly it is becoming the place to see and... More

The DeBrett is a "boutique" hotel. And the decor is suitably interesting and well maintained. We booked a classic room and a boutique suite. We booked well in advance as a family celebration. The hotel was aware of the reason for our stay. Because one special offer had just ended and another started just after we booked, this was not... More

This was a great place to stay for our first visit to Auckland. We chose it based on a friend's recommendation of its location, and it was the perfect choice. It was set in a cool neighbourhood with a rare bookshop next door, cute little tapas restaurants round the corner, hip fashion boutiques across the street (including local labels Zambesi... More

Great place to stay. Nice stylish rooms and environment, fantastic restaurant and the included continentel breakfast suited us perfectly. Good location for getting around Auckland. The poka dot bathroom might be too much if you've had a few too many drinks and the strong colours and contrasts might not be to everyones taste - but it felt fresh and modern... More

This is a unique & stylish hotel in a convenient location. Staff were friendly and helpful and welcomed us, even though it was late at night after a late arriving flight. For a change, the rooms are every bit as good as the images on the website! Whilst not huge, (this is a city hotel after all) they are furnished... More
