Butterworth is essentially not a tourist destination, so the hotel options are really limited, apart from the expensive Sunway Hotel in Seberang Perai. So, if I am working around Bertam, Kepala Batas, Kulim, Bkt Mertajam area, there isn't really much option, until De' Garden Hotel comes along.
This hotel recently open sometime in Feb2010. It is located right behind the Butterworth Billion Departmental Store. In Google Map, you will find this hotel located on Lorong Cempaka instead of Lorong Cempa.
For a sales person like me, my needs for a night stay is really quite basic, and De' Garden Hotel has delighted my staying experience.
The standard room with balcony is brighly lit, with individually controlled air-cond, large LCD TV with 5 channels or so (think it was ESPN, Star Movies, AEC, NTV7 and etc.) The bed is really firm and great pillows. I particularly like the wooden flooring that really helps keep the room cleaner compare with carpets. There's safe in the room as well. Wifi didn't work when I was there, but I am sure they will fix that up soon.
The toilet design is really good: no bath tub, water leak proof (helps keep the flooring dry), and the shower is hot and strong.
There's ample parking, located conveniently with loads of food choices around. So, even though breakfast is included (not much choice, like Nasi lemak, American Breakfast choice), you want to eat outside those coffee shop nearby.
The cafe downstairs is managed by a professional caterer that does outside catering, so the food quality is good and pricing reasonable.
Overall, this Hotel is not easy to get to unless if you have a car (as with around Butterworth-Perai area anyways). I would still strongly recommend if you just want a good comfortable stay when you are around the area.
