“It’s young, modern, stylish, and comes with a sultry twist. The delightful art deco finishings give it an overall elegant feel and the seductive Housebar draws a hip resident crowd. All rooms are individually designed, but we like Loft rooms 2.3 and 2.4 which both boast spiral staircases. A big thumbs up also goes to the sumptuous beds which are well worth planning a lie-in for.”
Located in an iconic Art Deco building, Hotel DeBrett is a boutique hotel in the heart of Auckland’s shopping district. Fusing modern design with a touch of Kiwi kitsch, it’s warm, welcoming and perfectly placed to browse the designer boutiques on Queen Street.
The spacious guestrooms and suites are individually designed with bespoke hand-woven carpets. The colourful rooms contain comfortable beds, eclectic furniture and local arts and crafts, while en suites have separate showers, bathtubs and underfloor heating.
Set beneath a soaring glass-roofed atrium, DeBretts Kitchen serves contemporary New Zealand cuisine and a 1920s high tea on weekends. After dinner, retire to the Art Deco-inspired Housebar or retro Cornerbar to sip boutique wines and craft beers.
Auckland’s main attractions are within easy walking distance, or hop on a ferry to explore the volcanic island of Rangitoto or go wine tasting on Waiheke.
