Stayed here first night in New Zealand. The service is impeccable. When I left my raincoat behind, they contacted me immediately and forwarded my jacket to my next destination. The beds are the most comfortable nights sleep of our whole 20 day vacation. Shower has great water pressure. Most notably: they have the best flat white and Eggs Benedict in...

I have stayed in some very stylish hotels and in some very friendly hotels, but nowhere that combines them quite as well as the DeBrett. Rather than follow a look or a fashion the designer has created rooms that she would be happy to live in, lots of excellent little touches. The bathrooms are particularly chic and well equipped. The...

Seriously do not stay there even if your life depend on it !! The place is small not at all what we expected . We arrived at 11:30pm and we had to leave the room at 10am since the manager told us that is we would like to stay till 13:00 we had to pay an extra 100$!!! I've never...

This was our first visit to Auckland and I couldn't have been happier with our stay at DeBrett's for two nights. A vintage, funky property with wonderful staff. Only a small number of rooms and no big hotel facilities it was more a private club with it's wonderful restaurant, bar and private Drawing Room. The old lift has a mirror...

A perfect stay. The room was spacious and the decor fabulously quirky - if you like the blandness of large hotels this may not be for you. Despite it's downtown location the room was quiet and the bed was incredible. The staff were friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning to stay for pleasure rather than business.

This was our second stay at the Hotel DeBrett, separated by about 3 years. It was as good as we remembered and then some. This time, we ate in the Cornerbar and had the pre-show dinner. The pizza was excellent in the Cornerbar, and the pre-show dinner was delicious and convenient. Our room was next to the lift, which we...

I have stayed at 2 star to 5 star hotels and Hotel DeBrett is by far the most disappointing. Perhaps if one stays for 1 or 2 days and they don't come face to face with the dreadful management, the Debrett would be fine, as the location is wonderful, beds are comfortable, food is ok, many rooms are inside rooms...

Loved this place. Couldn't be better located right in the CBD. Hugely imaginative renovation of an old (and apparently run down) hotel, keeping the external look, but providing very modern urban chic look inside. Our suite (101) was very comfortable and even though it is right next to the bar and restaurant and looks out onto the street, no noise...

We stayed here for an urban getaway in Auckland on Sunday, just so we could relax and unwind. Hotel DeBrett was the perfect place to stay, from the moment we pulled up outside until the moment we left. Beautiful art deco style interiors, spacious bathroom with an enormous bathtub, and a stunning loft suite...this hotel truly shows its guests the...

I love boutique hotel and this one I would go back to if I were to go back to Auckland. Very friendly and helpful staff.
