Loved the decor, loved the experience staff were very friendly and helpful. Loved the pre dinner drinks in the drawing room very unique. Simple yet filling continental breakfast. Great location would definitely recommend this hotel.

We recently had a 2 night stay at this delightful hotel. The car parking is well organized, after unloading our luggage, the car was whisked away but available at any time with a few minutes notice. Our room was not huge, but beautifully furnished especially the high tech lighting and communications equipment. The bed is exquisitely comfortable, there is absolutely no street noise thanks to double glazing so restful sleep is assured. The bathroom decor is elegant with a large shower and a huge bath all with fabulous contemporary fittings and space to move. We enjoyed using the guest lounge where complimentary drinks are served each evening. Dinner on our first evening at the restaurant was a nice experience with a good menu and knowledgable staff. The delicious continental breakfast has plenty of choice. Staff were friendly and very helpful with our questions on sightseeing and road maps etc. Highly recommended.

I put this hotel on my radar for an Auckland destination after reading a most favorable review last year in the Globe & Mail and subsequently following up on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The service was exemplary and the hotel itself is quite stylish. The continental breakfasts were a great way to start the day. We did have dinner in their restaurant which was outstanding on our last night. The location can't be beat and the complimentary pre-dinner cocktail in the drawing room is a welcome touch.

Charming hotel, beautiful breakfast room, and a great location! I loved the room, especially the bathrooms. The staff was helpful in giving us directions and suggestions on where to go. I would definitely stay there again.

The DeBrett is located in the very center of Auckland inner city, in High Street, right next to Volcano Lane where all the pubs are and to Queens Street where all the shopping is. Down to the Harbour it's 5 mins of walk.
Our room was quite big with a real big and modern bathroom. The bed was a dream, I rarely had such a cosy bed and it was perfect to recover the 30 hours trip we had coming from Germany.
The service is superfriendly and helpful with everything. There is still family room where you can enjoy free pre dinner drinks at 6:30 pm and talk to other guests. Sunday night there is live music in the bar.
Only two downsides, the continental breakfast buffet is limited in variety and the room was a bit cold even though we switched the aircondition off.
But overall a great place to be, definitely recommend!!

Room Tip: The rooms of silence are towards the street, trust me.

Whilst the decor is a bit OTT for my liking, the rooms are very comfortable, breakfast nice (although a little limited).

The location is perfect, nice and central, but not on a main road.

But most importantly perhaps, the front desk staff are very knowledgeable. During my stay they gave me a number of "off the beaten track" restaurant recommendations, all the ones I tried were excellent.

We stayed here for a friends wedding and absolutely loved it. From the colourful carpets to the gorgeous mirrored, brass lift there is nothing to fault. Check-in was fast, efficient and friendly. We were shown to our room and given a wee tour of the hotel and made it in time for complimentary drinks in the private drawing room. The furniture is great throughout, retro but not cheap and tacky. The room was great, not massive but perfectly designed. A previous review complained about the heavily scented diffusers, we just moved ours into the bathroom which made it more subtle, no dramas. The bed, pillows and bedding were gorgeous and we had a great sleep, the bathroom was superbly fitted with everything you need and more. All the staff were friendly and very helpful.
The two nights weren't long enough and we will definitely be back.
