A boutique hotel often means one where comfort and practicality take second place to an obsession with style. Not so with the Debrett. Guest rooms, as has been noted here, are adjacent to and/or overlook bars and restaurants which are open to the public. Nevertheless, they are quiet and secure, and extremely comfortable and functional. The rooms are also very,... More

This boutique hotel was close to everything, very quaint, lovely service, and a hidden bar worth a late night drink. We traveled here during a cold and rainy spell and it was so inviting to come back to this warm and inviting spot - great decor and the bathroom was our favorite part - big and open with a great...

Hotel DeBrett had excellent service, a hip vibe, and free wifi. The highlight was the 6:30 complimentary cocktail in the guests' drawing room, where we met guests from all over the world and enjoyed a lovely New Zealand wine. The downside is that the room had only interior windows and overlooked the restaurant, though the glass was double paned to... More

So I checked in on day three and have been coming to this fantastic home away from home every other month since it opened 3 years ago! Perfectly located in the heart of Auckland great for the business traveller like... More

Fork out an indecent amount of NZ dollars and enjoy one of the smartest place in Auckland. So famous it seems like the whole capital comes here, either for a drink, a dinner, or a chat by the woodfire. The place is full packed during the weekend and bunches of hipe people hang around the foyer every evening. During the... More

We couldn't have been happier with this fantastic boutique hotel in Central Auckland. Standard room was very large and beautifully appointed. Breakfast and wifi included in hotel price. Dinner at Kitchen restaurant was great with interesting fare with local ingredients. Service and management was warm, helpful and friendly.

Wow this place is absolutely amazing! We had our socks blown off us when we entered into what used to be an old rundown hotel. This has now been transformed into a beautiful, modern boutique hotel, whilst keeping many of it's older awesome features. No money has been spared in the decoration of this place with good quality furnishings and... More
