Let’s stay

The Hotel Britomart

The hotel is a bold new addition to Britomart, the historic waterfront neighbourhood in downtown Auckland that has been the focus of a thoughtful 15-year regeneration process.

Guests can expect customised experiences when The Hotel Britomart opens.

“There’ll be no stiff formality. Instead, the hotel team will be able to share their enthusiasm in inviting our guests to enjoy all of the richness and variety that Auckland has to offer.”

Clinton Farley, Hotel General Manager

The Hotel Britomart is at the centre of a dynamic nine-block precinct of plant-lined streets, historic warehouses, and the city’s best shopping and eating.

A new restaurant named Kingi (short for kingfish) will open on the ground floor of historic Masonic House to serve locals and hotel guests, while three other new restaurants are opening just steps from the hotel entrance.
