“Loved it... this property exceeded our expectations!”
Reviewed 28 October 2010

I recently stayed with my wife and my mother in law and had a brilliant stay. The location is fantastic, close to the viaduct and the shopping which is exactly what we were looking for. We went to Auckland to have a short 'city' experince as we live in Queenstown and it totally delivered.

The hotel is funcky without being over the top. The staff were always friendly and my wife and her mother totally loved the restuarant and bar area which is housed in an internal courtyard. The hotel also had a separate guest only lounge which had great books and an honesty bar. I didn't use the bar but I did use the complimentary internet access in the guest lounge and it was a really nice spot to just chill out.

I couldn't recommend this property highly enough. It is close to the great shopping area which is High Street were you can find great New Zealand designers and lots of other cool shops to brouse in.

After spending 3 months in a van, we stayed here for my b'day, it was absolutely divine, breakfast in bed is a must. we booked this after spending a awful night in the Kiwi International. We had dinner as well in the hotel, which was really nice as well.

Check in & welcome: Friendly welcome, offered valet parking for our rental car and immediately check in (even if we were far to early for regular check in and they are a small hotel) in order to have some rest and get over our jet lag.

Room: Unique & creative design, the mattresses and bed linens were amazing

Location: Perfect, in the city center, because it is not a big city anyway, everything is more or less in walking distance!

Bar / Restaurant: Lovely place next to the fire place, where we enjoyed coffee and aperitif! Beautiful design & interior!

Breakfast: Yummy breakfast (try the marmalades, honeys, muffins)!

Value for money: Very good!

A most excellent hotel with funky decor and design. My only issue was that the cleaning staff failed to refresh my room bar after use. Seems like a petty thing to have an issue with, but when everything else about this wonderful hotel is above and beyond expectations, something simple like refreshing the complimentary coffee does stand out. That said I would not hesitate to return and am counting the days until I can!

We stayed in the DeBrett when visiting friends in Auckland.

A great location right in the heart of the city (although a little noisy late on a Saturday night.

Standout staff in the restaurant. Great breakfasts in a nice space.

Rooms styling is quirky but works well. The spaces themselves can be a little cramped & awkward but that's to be expected in an older, converted building.

Both owners are very nice people who are as helpful as they can be.

A great place to stay.

My partner and I live in Auckland and decided to celebrate his 40th birthday by spending the weekend in your hotel and inviting 20 family and friends to join us on the Saturday night for drinks and dinner.

We had an absolutely fabulous time thanks to the warmth and ambience of your hotel and attentive hospitality of your front desk, restaurant and bar staff. All of our friends conveyed the same sentiment commenting they were keen to visit again as guests in the near future.

Apart from the great amenities within the hotel we also enjoyed shopping and relaxing in the central city location. We will highly recommend your venue to friends and family and definitely intend to stay again.

When you next visit Auckland you just have to stay here. We were on a family holiday and finished off our journey in Auckland for a few days and decided to treat ourselves to a nice boutique hotel. This one did not disappoint. Two days before we arrived, we received an email to say that we would be receiving an upgrade - great service!

The funky art deco decor was a delight and I especially loved the carpet throughout the hotel. The bathroom worked really well and was so lavish and beds were very comfortable the sheets were really amazing quality. The rooms are kitted out like a home and there is plenty of lighting and seating.

The sofa bed was made up to accommodate our two children and we were still left with plenty of room to move around and although we were in a very central location, there was no outside noise.

The service is top notch and this hotel went above and beyond to help us. We lost some computer equipment on the way to the hotel and the hotel spent a lot of time trying to track down our lost goods. When arriving back in Singapore I received a call on my mobile from the hotel to advise that they had found my computer case and helped me to arrange for it to be sent back to me here in Singapore. Amazing service!

The breakfast was nice and great for the kids. You have the option to order a cooked breakfast if you fancy it.

It was money well spent for us.
