24 Oct Luxury New Zealand Accommodation – Hotel De Brett
In the heart of Auckland’s most vibrant dining and fashion precincts, inside one of the city’s most iconic historic buildings, you’ll find a very special accommodation – Hotel De Brett…
This 25-room darling is best described, we think, as a Design Hotel. Design Hotels are distinct from other boutique hotels; notable for their attention to interior design and architecture. The multi-award winning Hotel De Brett offers our discerning clients a superb calibre of personal service, in a space that celebrates the best of contemporary New Zealand and international design.
So… To Your Room
Each of the 25 rooms at Hotel De Brett has its own aesthetic and mood, and all feature eclectic designer furniture, along with impressive New Zealand art and photography.
But it’s not just the cool, contemporary style that sets Hotel De Brett apart – it’s all the little touches. As designer Charles Eames famously said: the details aren’t just the details – they make the design. Details like being able to select from a pillow menu to suit your sleeping style; a lush hand-printed designer throw on your bed; complimentary toiletries of the highest quality…
If travelling with your family, let us book you into the very spacious and stylish two-level O’Connell Suite, or the luxury Loft Suite, with its funky spiral staircase (at the top of which is your private master and ensuite).
We can’t miss mentioning the bathrooms at the De Brett. With their bold black tiling, designer fittings and tapware, and divinely deep baths to sink into, it’s a little bit of upstate New York in New Zealand. We think you’ll also appreciate the salon-quality hair dryers, and both velvet and towelling robes.
Not Your Typical Hotel Restaurant…
Hotel De Brett offers a number of social spaces to wine and dine in. In the centre of this boutique hotel is the dining room of De Brett’s Kitchen – an architecturally-designed atrium and courtyard, flooded with light from the soaring glass roof, and warmed by a massive open fire. DeBrett’s Kitchen serves all guests a complimentary healthy or hearty breakfast each morning, presents delicious options for lunch, and comes alive in the evenings. We love the fact that you can watch your Chefs in action from the plush banquettes in the open kitchen.
After a day out in Auckland City, come ‘home’ to CornerBar, with its funky retro styling, and enjoy some of the best boutique wines and local craft beers New Zealand has to offer.
After dinner, head to HouseBar. Order from the elegant cocktail menu and feel as stylish as a character from Mad Men in the art deco surrounds.
