Inside the heritage two-storey villa on the corner of Fitzroy Street and Richmond Road in Ponsonby, are elegantly styled rooms that allow guests to relax in complete style and comfort. The landmark villa is juxtaposed by a contemporary building with a dramatic black slatted exterior, an external sculptural spiral staircase and four superior rooms.
Director of sales & marketing, Lisa Breckon feels that the hotel is the perfect place for discerning individual and small groups, attending business events in Auckland. “Hotel Fitzroy would work very well for small groups, executive retreats or small incentives. It maybe that groups, families or individuals would like exclusive use of a boutique hotel and we can help with that.” Says Breckon.
Breakfast has been designed by award-winning group executive chef Jinu Abraham, is delivered to each guest’s room in the morning. Each breakfast has a focus on local inspiration, whole foods and sustainable produce grown and raised in the region and is included in the room rate. So too is the tumbler of whisky in the library and custom-selected minibar.
For guests wanting a nightcap, a place to read the newspaper or catch up on work, the intimate Fitzroy library has been designed with exactly this in mind. There is a well-stocked bar and extensive collection of books for guests to enjoy a moment of quiet.
Hotel Fitzroy is the first hotel to open under the new Fables Hotels & Resorts brand.
