Great food, friendly staff and a wonderful atmosphere. We would definitely eat there again in a heartbeat. Location is perfect, right in the city centre and with an cool little hotel bar situated on the street corner. Would recommend checking the bar out for drinks...More

Service was more miss than hit. Orders incorrect even when hostess double-checked order and food not timely. Didnt seem as fresh as previous visits and as though they had outsourced kitchen/dining to 3rd party group who missed the concept of Hotel DeBretts

We had a really tasty meal here - often we head away from our hotel restaurants but decided for a change to eat 'in!. Good choice - it was excellent.

Chef couldn't have done a better job of adapting a recipe to suit my husband's coeliac diet. The chicken was truly the best I have ever had! A complimentary welcome drink and breakfast - delightful...tasty and smart!

The iconic Hotel DeBrett is nestled in the heart of Auckland city, at the crossroads of Shortland Street’s business and High Street’s fashion precincts, just two short blocks from the waterfront.Our 25 rooms and suites are individually decorated in a mid-century modern style, show-casing contemporary New Zealand arts and crafts, overlaid with 21st century comforts. At the core of the hotel we have created a glass roofed atrium and courtyard, which provide ambient meeting spots for guests and visitors, with a casual gourmet restaurant “kitchen” at one end, and the legendary art deco “House Bar” at the other. Tucked off to the side, exclusively for house guests, is a drawing room stocked with a selection of our own art, books, music and movies. Experience a mix of calm and bustle in central Auckland, and share our special home away from home, with personal yet professional service. We look forward to welcoming you to Hotel DeBrett.
