Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Nestled within the old-world charm of Auckland’s High Street – amid lanes populated with fashion designers, bespoke tailors, barbers and coffee houses – lies the delightfully Art Deco styled Hotel DeBrett. A luxury boutique hotel just minutes walk from the bustle of the Britomart, lower Queen Street and Auckland’s iconic waterfront. All 25 rooms – each with a distinct personality – are a chic mix of mid-century modern furniture fused with contemporary comforts designed to tickle the senses. The hotels signature restaurant, DeBretts Kitchen, specializes in contemporary New Zealand cuisine where menus are seasonal, creative and attuned to local produce, and the iconic Housebar, resplendent in elegant Art Deco detailing, serves delightfully imaginative cocktails with panache.

Lovely room, ours was a two story room, with the bedroom up a set of spiral stairs, a first floor seating area and bath on both floors. Not much of a view from our room, but very comfortable and good black out curtains, perfect for adjusting to our post flight time change.
