“Great spot in Auckland”
Reviewed 29 April 2010

Staff was great and helpful. Hotel has style and charm. Breakfast is great. Location is great for the city center. We had a "boutique" room, which I'm under the impression might be bigger than normal. We didn't have much room for the luggage. Also, we had a room with a door to the breakfast/bar lounge, which was loud at night. I slept fine though. Also, the workout facility is a couple of blocks away, if it matters (didn't to me). Just things to consider if staying here. Overall, a great place to stay.

I stayed at the hotel for Christmas and New Year. The rooms are spacious, and very comfortable. Every detail was thought of, such as under floor heating in the bathrooms. The restaurant was warm and inviting with its glass ceiling, and the food delicious and the wine list first class. The bar is intimate and cozy and the drawing room very relaxing. My family and I availed ourselves of all the facilities. The hotel is so ideally located for shopping and there are wonderful restaurants in the area. I loved my stay at the hotel and hope to visit it again when I can get to New Zealand

After a 32hour flight, we' ve been welcomed by the very helpfull staff at Debrett's.
The interior is really nice and looks very european. We immediatelly felt at home.
Our room was very spacious and although it was at the streetside, there was no noise at all!
The bathroom was also very clean and beautifully decorated.
We loved the spacious tub!

All in all, it is a very great value for a wonderfull stay in a big city and the staff and hotel lets you feel like you're visiting friends.

Breakfast is also a winner!

We stayed at Hotel de Brett with a last minute booking as our flight to Argentina was canceled due to the Chile earthquake. It was the first night of our honeymoon so we wanted somewhere a bit special...and special it was!! We absolutely loved the design of the building, furniture, decor etc..someone has really thought about every last detail! The service was brilliant and the staff were all very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We made good use of the library and the internet as we tried to reorganise our trip! The location was perfect for exploring Auckland with some good bars, cafes and the waterfront all close by. Our only issue was with the bed, whilst all the linen was lovely and of a very high quality, we found the bed itself to be very soft and both woke feeling a little sore. Could just be personal preference though.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a classy and boutique hotel experience in Auckland.

We stayed here our first two nights in New Zealand after a long flight from San Francisco. The bed was so wonderful, it was hard to get up and out! Our room overlooked the atrium which is a very cool space. There are double doors to the balcony to keep out noise but since we liked their choice of music, we often kept the doors open. We had all our luggage for a month's stay and there was plenty of room. The continental breakfast is superb. Lots of fresh fruit, freshly baked goods, yogurt, cereals etc. And really good coffee. The is staff wonderful. The location right down town is great if you don't have a car to worry about. Truly a perfect way to begin a trip and enjoy downtown Auckland. And those beds! We actually came home and bought ourselves a new mattress!

What a great experience - Spend that little more on your room if you can - I was sharing with a friend and we had a wonderful 2 storey room with a spiral staircase, heavenly bathroom, separate cloakroom on the sitting room floor, 2 plasma screens and cosmically comfortable twin beds! (we even had a sofa bed downstairs, so one of us could escape when the other snored!).
The hotel is right in the heart of all the really good bits of Auckland - quirky little boutiques, wonderful cafes and restaurants and lots of things to do and see.
The restaurant and bar are set in this wonderful glass atrium, so you get all the benefits of sitting outside, but can enjoy the sun and the stars in all weather. Just wish I could get to Auckland more often!
