Archived: Take a look inside Hotel DeBrett

From the moment you walk in the foyer, greeted by scented candles, iconic striped carpet and a smile from the front desk, your experience at Hotel DeBrett begins. The hippest little hotel in Auckland central, tucked away from the crowds of Queen Street but located in the fashionable High Street area, Hotel DeBrett is brimming with style. These days the word 'boutique' can tend to be overused, but here it is accurate - with only 25 rooms, each individually styled with special attention to the armchairs, bedding, art and more.

Rooms range from the Classic room through to suites of various designs and sizes, including the two-level Loft Suite, complete with spiral staircase. All the amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel, plus 24 hour room service, in-room massage and beauty treatments, free Wi-Fi & a DVD and book library. If you're lucky enough to be a guest here, there's even a private Drawing Room for guest-only use, where you can enjoy a complimentary pre-dinner cocktail and chat with other guests - not that there's a lack of other options for food and drink on site!

DeBrett's Kitchen serves continental breakfast to the guests, as well as working lunches, high teas and 5-star dining at night, all in the airy atrium. Or try an Old Fashioned at Housebar, cosy and discrete. Or you could also head outside and to Cornerbar, a relaxed bar perfect for people watching and grabbing a light meal. Hotel DeBrett is one of Auckland's best kept secret's - treat yourself or a loved one to a special night in soon. Find out more about the hotel and how to book here.

Park for $2 per hour, to a maximum of $10 on evenings and weekends at the Victoria St car park. Find out more.
