“Best hotel !!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Our daughter insisted we stay here after we booked her and her new husband here to start off their honeymoon last year. Exactly as she had said we found the Hotel DeBrett an outstanding hotel. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and what a great idea to have pre-dinner guest drinks !! The staff were all incredibly helpful and obliging and nothing was too much trouble. Do yourself a favour and book yourself in right now. It's not cheap but it is a great choice !!

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

great location walking distance to many restaurants bars, shops and also walking distance to ferry terminal and Auckland harbour with some great restaurants with roof top terrace.

Breakfast service, pre dinner drink and dinner service at the Hotel are okish. Breakfast offering itself is light with a lot of extra costs to get a decent one.

Reception service was great: very friendly and professional, parking service, Restaurant rec's, Beach recommendations incl. boards for the kids, Car service with child seats.

Room was very stylish but not a lot of space.

My wife and I stayed in one of the loft sweets for the weekend & also had dinner and breakfast.
Outstanding service, room, food over all a amazing weekend.
I spent a lot of time looking for a special place to stay and eat, certainty found it here.
I spent many hours looking online and reading reviews some of the Top 50 this and that for Auckland only to read bad reviews for the venue written with the last few weeks.
My job takes my around the world and this is up there with best places I've stayed.

Thanks Hotel DeBrett

Room Tip: The loft room is worth the extra $$ for that bit more of a special feel.

We loved this hotel the moment we got to the reception: a nice old building elegantly renovated with lots of personality. The rooms are originally decorated but still elegant, we loved the black tiled big bathroom. The common areas have an earthy, inviting home feeling. Breakfast was included and very good. The location is superbe, right in the center but in a small quiet street, next to a pedestrian area.
The staff were helpful AND cheerful. There is all round room service, although the quality of the food was not great. Maybe the only room for improvement

Located centrally in Auckland, small but beautifully redesigned, with very well appointed bedrooms (although fairly small) & an excellent bathroom. It is obvious that whenever the redesign was done they had cash to spend on quality furnishings and artwork. They did a great job! Staff were first class!

We stayed at this lovely downtown hotel two nights before embarking on a cruise ship, and our stay couldn't have been better. From the moment we checked in, we were impressed with the service and amenities of this unique property. Though very small, the bedrooms are well appointed and beds extremely comfortable. Bathrooms have been modernized and ours had both a free-standing tub plus a shower. We worried about street noise, as our room faced one of the main streets, but "double-glazed" windows insured quiet nights. The included continental breakfast was quite nice, and additional heavier breakfast entrees could be ordered for an upcharge. A lovely private guest reception in the hotel's library was hosted by the owner, and we enjoyed meeting her and some of the other hotel guests. Service provided from the staff was excellent on all counts. Would love to stay here again!

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
