The fit-out of this smart boutique hotel has been designed with such creative flair that it may make you want to go home and do a complete makeover! I have to start with the bathrooms - you will love the bathrooms! There are tiny black mosaic tiles, marble, divine lighting and the owner's selection of beautiful local bath products, that give such a feeling of unashamed luxe that you could be forgiven for spending much of your time in the bath! Then there are other little touches, like the salon quality hairdryers that the owner told me she had her hairdresser pick out especially for the hotel. So you can see the attention to detail here. The rooms are fun, comfortable and again luxurious - carpet that was individually designed, and again, just those little touches that make all the difference, scented oils, heavenly hotel clouds on the mattresses (even on the sofa bed mattresses made up at night, which was quite impressive). Another really nice thing about this hotel is the complimentary drinks hour that happens every evening. This is where the hotel transforms itself into a lovely lodge, for which New Zealand is so famous. You go into a warmly decorated room, hosted, and have a glass of local wine with a genial and knowledgeable staff member, often one of the owner's sons, who are happy to leave you alone to chat, or will chat with you, if you feel so inclined, nothing is too much trouble at this hotel. The reception staff were equally wonderful, and booked us a day trip and hire care for Waiheke Island, giving us great tips on which wineries to visit, where to have lunch and even mapped out walks along the beach for us all. The hotel's location is within walking distance of most of the places you will want to see in Auckland, and is also well located for a number of good restaurants, which were recommended and booked by the hotel with no problems, Prego in Ponsonby, and District Dining were both wonderful choices. We would definitely recommend Hotel de Brett. Their number one place on tripadvisor is more than well deserved.
