Perfectly positioned in the middle of Auckland allowing easy walking around the city and then beyond as also really close to the Ferry terminals. The staff were lovely and so willing to help with any request. Our boutique room was great and not a single city noise heard.

Location of the hotel is fabulous- central Auckland. The service and staff is excellent - very personal and very attentive. The rooms are funky and lovely to stay in; lined great; food well above average. The crowing glory of this hotel is the service provided by the staff - they were fantastic.

It's a great hotel right in the middle of Auckland. There is a funky pub/bar below and the hotel is above. We had the O'Connell suite with 2 adults and 2 kids (age 8 and 11) and it suited us fine. The kids were on a sofa bed in the downstairs section and there was an upstairs king bed with...

The staff were all without exception very friendly and helpful. For some reason, we were offered an upgrade, which we obviously enjoyed tremendously. We loved the interesting Art Deco features in our suite, and the bar /restaurant was a very modern attractive room. Sadly it was the end of our trip,and we only spent one night, so we weren't able...

My wife and I stayed at the DeBrett for the last two nights of our honeymoon. Because of the very convenient location but most importantly because of the excellent service of the staff, the lovely modern design in an old building, and the great foood (we only had the breakfast, though. Can't comment on the restaurant for dinner) spelled us....

We disembarked from a cruise ship in Auckland prior to checking in. If your getting off a ship stay at the Hilton or another hotel you can walk to. The taxi cab line was very long and getting luggage to the end of the line was a real pain. Total caious! We stayed in 217 a loft suite that had...

This is a highly recommended place for catching up with friends for a relaxing evening. Reasonable price with good services. I think the restored historical building gives us a good nostalgic feeling. Love the ambience.

This hotel was just fabulous. Having visited Auckland 2 years ago and stayed at the Sky City which was just too big and too busy, we were not particularly looking forward to our stop over in Auckland. However, we were assured by our travel advisor that the Debrett would change our minds and it did! All staff were extremely helpful...

We had high tea here for our wedding anniversary. The team were kind enough to book us in despite us calling up less than 24hrs prior to our intended reservation. They also surprised us with a special dessert which was a very nice touch. The high tea had a good selection of savouries and sweets. There was also a good...

I chose this hotel as it has scored #1 on Tripadvisor with lots of glowing reviews but we were disappointed with the value. It is a lovely boutique hotel with retro furnishings, a nice restaurant, comfy bed, spacious bathroom, complimentary arrival drinks and (modest) breakfast, right in the heart of the city and friendly staff but it's worth the top...
