Hotel DeBrett exceeded any expectations. Beautifully furnished. Welcoming and kind from the moment you arrive. The location means it is easy to get to anything in the CBD. Staff were superb. AND the best breakfast we have had in years. Thank you all for such a wonderful memory. You need to be proud.

Love the funkiness bordering on retro. Still retains some of the old characters of the original hotel. Beds and pillow amazing. The restaurant may need to improve, as it is becoming a bit stale in terms of choice.

Back in 2009 I was excited to chance upon Hotel DeBretts House Bar with it's small-but-perfectly-formed size and style. I asked the barman what the accommodation was like and was immediately given a personal tour of the suites and rooms, I was so impressed and am slightly embarrassed to admit it has taken so many years to actually book a a stay (although I do live a mere 20 minute walk away so it seemed overly decadent for a while). 2020's events + my birthday this year left no more excuses and I just wish I'd booked 2 nights instead of 1. Everything was perfect from start to finish; check in, perfect room, immaculately clean and organised, little touches, discreet/polite staff, breakfast...EVERYTHING. Even living a personal item was no big deal and is waiting at reception for collection at my convenience. I cannot wait to book another, longer stay. Thank you DeBretts!

What a great place to be ‘tourists in our own town’! We booked the Suite for two nights and couldn’t have been happier! Loved the Art Deco features and relaxed vibe. Cocktails in the bar were authentic and Luke & his staff at the Kitchen for breakfast were spot on!! 10/10!!
