We are no strangers to this hotel dining room as my 60th birthday party was held here, so it was an obvious choice to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It is our traditional to have an anniversary lunch instead of dinner and deBrett's Kitchen did not disappoint. The dining area is full of light - the decor funky. The service...

Writing this review a little late. But better than never. This hotel is beautify and quaint. Really a cool place to stay when visiting New Zealand. We had a mid size room but because the hotel was not booked they upgraded us for free to the 2 level room (when has this ever happened!!!!!). It was so great. Amazing bathroom...

Christmas Eve and looking for somewhere special to eat in central Auckland..I highly recommend this place. Parking close by if needed. A quirky art-deco set up with a mirrored lift taking you up to the restaurant. Attentive staff immediately showed us to our table. Mains are not cheap but they are delicious.and most food groups are taken care of. It...

Hotel staff were friendly and very accommodating. After driving in circles looking for the hotel, the receptionist met us at one of the major streets corners and helped us navigate to the hotel main entrance. The hotel's location is centrally located and a 15-20 min walk to most attractions. Our room did not have a street facing window and overlooked...

Nice big room, lovely tea making facilities, nice bathroom with a big deep bath as well as a large shower (tho the loo/door a bit too small) and great staff and food. Decor is very smart, chic and yet very different. Nice touch with the quiet room for guests only where books and DVDs can be selected for free and...

This was a very stylish place to stay as part of our honeymoon in New Zealand. The décor and rooms are faultless, the staff are very helpful and friendly, the breakfast is delicious. We particularly loved the complimentary Mr and Mrs Smith cocktails - we were also pleasantly surprised that there was another complimentary drink in the lounge area but...

Clearly a lot of thought and effort has gone into creating the boutique environment which greets you at Hotel DeBrett. Colours are bright, but not harsh. The bathrooms are all in a black-and-white theme. But comfort is present too, with a medium-soft mattress and lovely sheets. There is a pillow menu and we could ask for foam pillows. Many of...

Great room, comfortable beds, helpful staff. What I didn't like was the fact that the restaurant takes a block booking for parties from time to time and so guests cannot have dinner in the restaurant. No alternative room is available for guests to eat, as a solo traveller after a full day on a tour this was frustrating.
