Description: 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.

“great dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

My family recently had an evening meal at Hotel DeBrett. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and although the restaurant was very busy , we were served promptly and received great service from the staff. We highly recommend this hotel for a great dining experience.

“Fabulous meal at DeBretts Kitchen last Thursday evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Five of us enjoyed a wonderful evening at DeBretts last Thursday to celebrate a special birthday.
The food was divine.
All three courses couldn't be faulted, both in taste and presentation.
We were very lucky to be looked after by an incredibly efficient & friendly wait person.
They were very busy, but nothing suffered as a result.
An excellent evening all round.

“Simply outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Took a long taxi trip from our airport hotel to this one on the recommendation of a relative after a two week North Island winter holiday from Sydney: we were not disappointed. In this amazing and usual space in which the restaurant is situated, there is beautiful food: almost perfect lamb and fantastic and imaginative seafood dishes, all with perfectly complementing wines and seamless service. What is more they catered for our children (very fussy feeders) with a minimum of fuss and lots of good humour. Our only regret was not staying at this very stylish establishment!
