Exercise, relaxation, culture and countryside

If you want to go to the gym or play racket sports, you don’t need to leave the hotel. Hampshire Hotel – Emmen has its own extensive sports centre with squash and tennis courts. And if you want to walk or cycle in the fresh air, you can really enjoy the various nature reserves in the area, such as Sleenerzand, Orvelte and De Hondsrug. Other fun things to do:

The biggest crowd puller in Emmen and surroundings is Dierenpark Emmen. The butterfly garden in this beautiful zoo is the largest in Europe. Step on a steam train or peat barge and delve into the history of the peat moor in Veenpark. And you can find ten dolmens in and around Emmen.

De Muzeval is an intimate theatre presenting around 120 high-quality performances each season. Check the programme and purchase your ticket.

In Speelbos Emmerdennen the children can climb trees, jump across ditches and build tree houses. What is also fun and close-by is Aquarena swimming pool with wave machine. A little further away, but certainly worth a visit, is Het Gevangenismuseum in Veenhuizen. Take a drive in a prison bus and see what the cells look like from the inside.

Every summer Vlindermarkten are organised in the centre of Emmen; a combination of a goods market and a flea market.

“Great option!”

The staff in the hotel is very friendly. Accomodations are good and confortable. In case you'd like to go out, the city center is near (for dinner or shopping). The hotel restaurant is also a good option. As a guest in the hotel you have the option to use a nicely equiped sport center. I've been here twice for business and have had a great experience!

“Strong Business Hotel”

This is a strong business hotel with friendly staff who go out of their way to make your stay a good one. Rooms are not very large but my executive room had a wonderful walk-in shower. Double beds are in fact two matrasses, but have good sleeping quality. The location is a leisurely 10-15 minute walk to Emmen’s main shopping area as well as the Zoo. WiFi is complimentary and of ample speed, Breakfast is more than acceptable but is missing fresh (cut) fruits like pineapple, strawberries. Would return and would recommend over nearby Van Der Valk – which is in the same price range.

“Adequate probably 3.5”

Spent 2 nights at the hotel recently on business. The location is good for the town. We arrived at around 21h10 to be told that if we wanted dinner tomorrow then the restaurant closes at 21h00. As my colleague and I had both been travelling for some we asked about food now to be told that there is a room service menu that can be served in the bar. The menu is pretty limited but the food was edible. The superior room I had was clean and tidy with 2 single beds pushed together. A small but adequate workspace and a decent bathroom with walk in shower and bath tub. Wifi was free and a decent speed which is always good. Breakfast was OK but nothing special with the usual array of cold meats, cheese, bread and fruit and a limited hot selection. Everything including drinks was self service. Dinner in the restaurant was OK but not the friendliest service ever but professional. I had the Iberico pork which I have to say was very nice. The only problem I encountered was set check out when it took about 20 minutes as there was only 1 person on and guess what people wanted to check out around 08h00 in the morning. Funny that in a business hotel! Overall it is a decent hotel but a bit pricey for what you get although I would probably use it again if I was in the area.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Emmen
We would like to thank you for visiting our hotel and your response. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you want to visit our hotel again. Checking out is normally no problem for just one person (sometimes two) and it usually takes no longer than 3 minutes waiting, maybe there were some problems with another guest. We are sorry for that. We will hope to see you a next time in our hotel when you are in Emmen again.

“Decent and professional”

Located just outside the city center, but still on walking distance. Quiet large hotel, god for business. Professional and friendly staff. Room was clean and media-sized, bathroom well-equipped. Comfortable beds and fast internet. Breakfast decent as you would expect. The hotel is more than average and recommendable for business travelers.

“Adequate hotel, with friendly staff”

I regularly use this hotel for business trips. The staff is very friendly, and as a regular guest they always try to take my preferences into account, for example choice of the room. Rooms are adequate, good bed, and comfortable bathroom, but like most of the hotel could do with a make-over. Nevertheless, rooms are always very clean. They have free wifi, but this is rather slow, for faster internet you will have to pay a serious extra charge. Note that not all rooms have airconditioning, and with your window open you will hear the trains from early in the morning. Breakfast is fine, buffet style, with enough choices. The restaurant where diner is served has had a recent make-over. Waiters in the restaurant are very friendly, but the food is disappointing. As a hotel guest, you get free access to a well equipped fitness centre which is located in an adjacent building. Overall an average hotel with really friendly staff.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Emmen
Thank you for your response on Tripadvisor. We try to give our regular guest a sense of home as much as possible. In the very short term, we hope that the internet in our hotel will be much faster. When you are staying in our hotel again, we like to hear from you why you don't like the food in our restaurant, because we will be happy if this is also to your satisfaction. We also offer you a room at the front of the hotel so you do not hear the train.
