Hotel DeBrett Review

Overview

Exceptional 5 star small boutique hotel with only 25 rooms. It’s a heritage building on Auckland’s fashionable high street. Renowned for excellent service and interesting decor.

Location

The location is a 9/10. It’s on High Street which is a location worth visiting if you’re in Auckland. A short walk to Queen Street, Britomart and the Viaduct. This is a really central location. It’s also great for business travelers visiting Shortland Street or Queen Street.

Restaurants & Bars

DeBretts kitchen offers contemporary New Zealand Cuisine to a very high standard in a beautiful setting.

House Bar is a gem. It’s worth coming for a drink even if you’re not staying.

Corner Bar is also exceptional a really neat little bar with genuine character.

 

Accommodation Standard

The standard of accommodation offered at Hotel DeBrett hotel is a 10/10. But I would say it is a genuine boutique hotel. It’s small which is great because they don’t have to many guests at once they can really look after you, but it’s not everyones idea of a great 5 star experience. If you like true boutique hotels you’ll probably love DeBretts. If you want a huge hotel that has every facility imaginable and a huge suite you’ll need to look elsewhere. Or give it a try! You might like it.

Negatives

  • Hotel DeBrett is not a cheap place to stay.
  • Because of it’s small size there’s no room for a pool.

Outstanding Features

  • Location
  • Great Bars
