You will want to stay more than one night at this beautiful modern hotel converted from two heritage buildings. Rooms are lovely, big with personal touches; bar is timber lined, small and gorgeous and the service is warm and lovely. This hotel reflects all that is good about the new New Zealand. Ticks all round.

Lovely welcome. Fantastic night's sleep. Perfect location. Quirky boutique flavour to decor. Great bar! Breakfast could be enhanced a little, but overall excellent. Perfect launchpad for our New Zealand adventure.

We spent the last night of our 35 day trip to NZ at Hotel DeBrett in Auckland, and we were sorry that we didn't allow more time to stay here. The city is beautiful, the hotel charming, clean, and very special. We enjoyed the complimentary cocktail get together before dinner. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The Art Deco...

I'm not sure if all rooms are suites or if we just happened to get one. No matter what, we loved it. A cute, quirky room with a separate sleeping and lounging area. The bathroom was spacious enough and also fun in decor. This is not your cookie cutter hotel. This is truly a boutique hotel with unique rooms. I...

The Hotel Debrett is a superb hotel and well located. We stayed in one of the suites (2.6) and loved it. The decor was funky, including striped carpets, quirky seats and a bright green wardrobe. There was plenty of room, with separate bedroom and lounge area, and a large bathroom with bath, his and hers sinks and separate toilet and...

Had the pleasure of staying 2 nights. If you are looking for a small boutique hotel within walking distance of most attractions this is it. There is a nightly drink offered by the hotel where you can meet other travelers from around the world. If you are looking for dinner the hotel offers a wonderful menu as good as any...

The Hotel De Brett is a nice break from the other huge, generic hotels in Auckland. The location is great - not on the main waterfront, so it feels a bit more civilized. I'm thinking for design-oriented travelers this may be Auckland's best bet. The decor is cute - typical "we're a quirky boutique hotel with bright colors and wacky...

We had a suite in this very stylish hotel, like being a home from home but in a far more stylish place than home. Elegant design touches have restored this old building from a hotel/pub in the 60s, where local tell that boy met girl, to a modern hotel with wonderful attention to detail. The art deco bar has been...

We were lucky to get a wonderful suite, the only downside is that we were only there for one night. The decor of the hotel is lovely and there are some nice spaces for drinking and dining. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is centrally located. Would definitely visit again if in Auckland.

This hotel is an art deco wonder. The location in the city center is perfect for your explorations. Lots to do in the neighborhood and easy to get around once you learn the bus routes. The rooms are lovely and the bathroom tiling is a wonder. Continental breakfast was uninspired but adequate. Front desk staff is very helpful. Nice to...
