Set in the heart of the fashionable district of downtown Auckland, the contemporary and stylish Hotel DeBrett is the perfect base from which to explore the city’s elegant shops and numerous art galleries.

Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

25 individually decorated Art Deco style rooms range from classic en suites, boutique suites with separate living spaces and loft suites, which set on two levels are ideal for families. New Zealand art and photography pieces grace the walls, while handprinted bedthrows, Lucy Vincent Marr toiletries and deep bathtubs highlight the luxury feel of the hotel.

Contemporary New Zealand cuisine is served in the glass-roofed atrium of the DeBrett's restaurant, while less formal dining (alongside a good selection of craft beers) is offered at the modern cornerbar. The drawing room is reserved for guests and provides a sociable and calm retreat from the busy city outside; complimentary drinks with the owners are hosted here each evening.

In room health and beauty treatments can be arranged for guests, and the hotel benefits from special rates at a local swimming pool. Babysitting services, a DVD and book library, and honesty bar are also provided for guests. The sights and attractions of Auckland are on DeBrett's doorstep, including Viaduct Harbour, the Sky Tower and the Auckland Museum.

Why we love it

The original 1920s copper bathroom pipes were reclaimed when the hotel was refurbished, and now stand as a sculpture in the sunny courtyard.
