We stayed 4 nights in a Classic Room with a street view. We never heard street noise. The bed was excellent. Our friends were in a Classic room as well. Although they were similar, the floor plans differed, so each felt unique. They are not large, but well designed to make the most of the space. There were many options...

Friendly staff, quiet rooms, wonderful design, great atmosphere, fantastic bed, good breakfast, perfect location. Usually I am a bit suspicious on reading the remark 'boutique hotel', because it tends to mean: small place for too much money. But this hotel totally rocks it. Would definately stay there again.

Perfect weekend away. DeBretts is centrally located offering a great access to the CBD in Auckland. Reception and waitstaff were attentive and professional. Every request was promptly handled and dining recommendations hit the mark. We loved the Happy Hour in the lounge, hosted in a social manner we the opportunity to interact with other guests. DeBretts provided the foundation for...

Phenomenal service, and great hospitality (they settled us down well even though at that time we had no room), and the bar is great too (just ask for Richard). The rooms are a bit modern, bright and colourful, so not for the lovers of average big hotels.

The service at this hotel is world class. So friendly and helpful . The hotel is a bit quirky but in the best possible way . It is so conveniently located and it must have one of the best bars in NZ (for a small crowd). Very pleasant stay

Generally a good hotel, spacious rooms and bathroom and it has a helpful staff. Location is central. As a minus, the choices at breakfast are too little, not giving enough choices. Any addition like eggs, muesli are then charged separately.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel DeBrett. It's not ideal for those looking for the amenities of a large hotel but what it lacks in size and scale it makes up for in charm and location. We checked in and were escorted to our room by a lovely receptionist. The only unfortunate thing about our stay is that...

Perfectly nice people, and the hotel is very nicely placed in a convenient central position. But it wasn't one of the best we stayed in during our time in New Zealand. Our room was long and narrow, with one smallish window which opened onto the courtyard where the restaurant was located. All in all it felt a little dark and...

We arrived in the middle of the night after two long flights, so we were happy someone was waiting for us and checked us in right away. The room was quite big, nicely decorated and clean.The bathroom was great as well and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, which was a relief after 22 hours on a...

Oddly designed hotel - our room had now windows apart from ones that opened on to the restaurant! The doors in our room seemed badly designed too - meaning you constantly have to squeeze round doors. However room was clean and bed was comfy.
