“Excellent boutique hotel”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed here for 5 nights at 3 different times in Jan. 2013. We stayed in a suite and in a classic room and both were very comfortable and aesthetically appealing. The entire hotel is nicely designed with colorful decor. The atrium is beautiful and is a wonderful place to eat breakfast and start the day, as well as relax in late afternoon. The service was excellent and the onsite restaurant and bar were very good. The hotel is conveniently located to the wharf area.

The Debrett Hotel is conveniently located in Auckland's city centre. It is very modern and trendy. The rooms are well fitted-out and comfortable, as are the beds. Service is very good, breakfast is excellent and the decor throughout the hotel is super. Definitely recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel de Brett for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We booked an O'Connell suite, as no less expensive rooms were available at the time we booked, but actually were upgraded to and stayed in a one level loft suite (although we did not realise this during our stay as we were not told when we checked in).

We loved the hotel, particularly the boutique ambience, decor and obvious quality of all the furnishings, bedding and bathrooms.

In terms of value for money, we paid $450 for the room and were very happy with that. If we were to stay again for a couple of nights (and we would love to), I would probably try to book a boutique suite.

The service of all the staff was exemplary, typified by the fact that they emailed us on the day we departed regarding a phone charger we had left behind.

The location is centrally located in the CBD.

Our room was very quiet. Even though it was located adjacent to the hotel restaurant we heard no hotel or street noise at all,

We look forward to returning here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights in November for our wedding anniversary, I booked it after reading reviews on tripadvisor. I loved it. As soon as we walked through the doors i knew we had made the right decision. Great location , fabulous bathrooms , excellent carpet. The atrium was very sylish and a beautiful spot to have a coffee or drink. We only went for complimentary drink on our last night and then had dinner at hotel both were good. Obviously no gym or pool so if that's what you need , maybe not the right place to go. Also reception staff were very helpful and friendly as were restaurant staff. Thiis the first time I've written a hotel review . I would love to go back

Room Tip: We face the street because I had read reviews about noise but I would have been happy overlooking at...

This is probably one of the best hotels we have stayed in over 50 years of traveling (since I was a baby). From the welcoming front desk staff to the help finding somewhere our gluten intolerant daughter could eat dinner (they had gluten free bread for her at the complimentary continental breakfast), to the before dinner complimentary cocktails, to the 60's and 70's era music playing in the dining room, bar, lounge area, to the mid-century modern decor - an overwhelmingly positive experience and great value for the $$$$. We are happily ending our 3 weeks of exploring New Zealand in this little slice of heaven on earth. Thank you to the owners and staff of this lovely boutiques hotel nestled in central Auckland:)

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room - they are larger! Bring your bubble bath to enjoy the huge soaking tubs!

We stayed at DeBrett for two nights at a classic room which overlooked the hotel’s roof atrium. The hotel’s location is great; only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, theatres, the Britomart and the Viaduct harbour. The room was extremely spacious, modern, with a writing desk and seating area, a plush carpet, VERY comfortable bed and a huge bathroom with rain and side shower. There is plenty of pay and display parking around the hotel and a Wilsons parking couple of roads away. Although when we checked in we thought that the noise from the restaurant at the atrium would not let us sleep we were very wrong. Nothing can be heard due to double glazed windows and heavy curtains.

The front desk staff and the ladies at the breakfast were extremely friendly and professional. The continental breakfast was fine and the coffee superb. It’s a great place to stay in Auckland.
