Auckland, New Zealand

The Hotel Britomart

City chic on the water

An ideal escape from the buzz of the city with nature-infused flair

Stepping inside The Hotel Britomart is a breath of fresh air. While on the doorstep you’ve got the dynamic and thrilling thrum of Auckland, inside here you’ll find calming spaces filled with serene, neutral colours and natural linens, and little details that will delight. It’s all clean lines and natural light by design, with wood-panelled ceilings and timber-clad walls in the 99 bedrooms, and the mini bars in each of its rooms are stocked with local treats. 

Choose a Waitematā View room and you’ll get the added bonus of waterfront vistas right from your bedroom, where you can watch the ferries come and go from the docks down below. For an elevated experience, though, the five Landing Suites are superb: expect curated artworks by top photographers, a library of books to encourage more exploration of New Zealand and its history, and ample space for relaxing with your own lounge area and kitchenette.

Industrial infrastructure meets fine seafood at the property’s Kingi restaurant, where chef Tom Hishon prioritises locally-caught fish and seasonal produce on his tasting menus, and breakfast here is a feast of nourishing, fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and home-baked breads and pastries.

Beyond bricks and mortar, this renovation revives Auckland’s history, allowing it to harmoniously coexist with the present.
  • Hotel Britomart prioritises the well-being of its diverse team, providing fair wages, mental health support, and celebrating important occasions. Embracing the cultural history of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei iwi, the hotel showcases New Zealand artists and tells local stories through commissioned artworks.
