“Funky Hotel”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Short stay in Auckland, one of the lighlights was this lovely hotel, Great location short wall to everything, helpful, friendly and very personal service. Lovely decor in the hotel, especially in bedroom and bathrooms , very chique but with a lovely retro feel.

Bed and breakwast was good value, dined in restaurant one evening and food was great.

Room Tip: we had room on second floor which had much larger bathroom

We stayed just one night at the weekend. The service was exceptional from the moment we arrived. We were shown to our room and had the facilities pointed out to us along the way. Nice welcome!
The room was funky! Very cool. With plenty of space. Bathroom was small but also well decorated. Loved the style of the room.
We arrived back to our room late (after midnight) and asked the receptionist if we could get room service and the duty manager (?) came out and offered us a snack in the bar. She took us up to the bar, arranged a drink for us and toasted sandwiches and fries. Fitted the bill nicely. Thank you so much for that!
Every person we came across was exceptionally polite friendly and professional.
I loved the hotel and can't wait to go back. The decor is very cool. The location is perfect. But it was the service that makes it stand out.
A great stay.

The team at Hotel De Brett were amazing. From the fabulous Olivia to the wonderful Santi, the staff made our big day unbelievably stress-free and magical. Thank you so much. All of our friends who stayed loved their rooms, and the rose petal heart on our bed was the final touch on a perfect day.

Very friendly and helpful reception staff. We had a living room, very small bedroom (barely room to get round the bed sides) and luxurious large bathroom. Very restful environment despite being convenient for all Auckland's attractions / shops. Best breakfast coffee we had in New Zealand, also excellent orange juice and toast. We enjoyed a dinner in the restaurant although choice was a little limited.

We thoroughly enjoyed the DeBrett. The location is perfect for business or pleasure, right in the heart of downtown. Our room was clean and had all the amenities. Service was very good. We particularly enjoyed the restaurant. Again, service was good and it is a pretty setting. Breakfast was good. We did not have dinner there, but heard from others that it is excellent. Unfortunately we left some clothes in our room, but the DeBrett staff were on it. They emailed us and promptly arranged for delivery to our home.

If you are a tourist, you will love the location. It is close to the harbour. Hotel staff are very helpful in advising about what to do and where to go. Hard to do better than the DeBrett in Auckland, especially when you consider price.

Yes, the hotel is in a great location. Yes, the hotel is beautifully furnished. Yes, the complimentary evening drink in the drawing room is a nice touch. BUT the thing we thought was really great about this hotel was the enthusiasm of the staff. Everyone we met was pleasant, cheerful and ready to help. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Auckland.
