We stayed here on the night of our wedding and staff made us feel very special. We had a late check out at no extra charge and a delicious breakfast the next day, with proper coffee. The design of each room has been carefully considered and made the perfect end to our perfect day.

This place was the perfect antidote to tje otherwise grey and drab Auckland we found last December. Very well located centrally but on a relatively quiet side road, you enter the intimate lobby with its cabinets of interesting modern sculpture and jewellery for sale, then go up in the tiny lift to your room, walking across a glass bridge over the restaurant on the way. The rooms are attractively decorated in a very modern style: we stayed one night in suites which had separate living and sleeping areas conveniently divided off (or in one case up stairs) but the other night in ordinary double rooms was fine too.

On our second night (we were too late on the first) we enjoyed the pre-dinner free drinks in the drawing room, and thence into the (again stylishly decorated) restaurant. Food is modern New Zealand i.e. lots of lamb and fish on the menu, but imaginatively done with tasty but not over-rich sauces. Breakfast was huge and fresh too, and the staff dealt well with our kids need for gluten and dairy-free options.

This is somewhere I would unhesitatingly recommend: prices are pretty reasonable for what you get and it's far more interesting, stylish and higher quality than the chain hotels which make up much of the rest of the choice in Auckland.

Stylish, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Amazingly good soundproofing, we couldn't hear anything from the busy road outside. Very comfortable beds and nice size room. Would stay there over the Hilton any day.
Kitchen restaurant is in a great setting, with a good value breakfast. High St is perfect for designer clothes shopping..............

Every detail has been thought of here. The room the service and the restaurant. An ideal romantic hideaway with access to all Aucland has to offer.

Retro furniture brings a real Kiwi feel to your stay.

We booked for several nights at the beginning of a month long visit. We had a desire for a quiet place downtown where we could relax and switch time zones, 8 in total. Arriving before diner, we checked into our room, a suite with a small sitting room that was made up each night for our grade 2 son. We received everything we expected, breakfast was included and more then sufficient for the start of the day. Excellent room service both in the morning and evening. The special touch for us was the evening gathering in the Drawing room, hosted by one of the owners, John or Michelle. Both of them were very open, personable and extended an excellent level of hospitality, making us feel very comfortable, our son was just as excited to go each night. Each day we were excellently situated to explore the surroundings. Outstanding welcome and introduction to New Zealand/Auckland hospitality. Thanks to all at DeBrett staff.
