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.

“NOT what it used to be, has gone from 3 *** to just 1*”

We have stayed at this hotel many many times, from when it was still called "de Giraf". The last time we stayed here in October 2011 it was still called the "Hotel Eden". When we visited in May this year it had become the "Hampshire Hotel". The changes were evident. Front desk staff were not friendly, the breakfast room that used to be bright and located under the dome was now moved into a much darker area. The breakfast staff are rude and clearly don't want to be there. The buffet used to be in the middle and surrounded by cozy tables, now it is shoved in a corner. The buffet itself was sparse and basic, and very expensive ! Every morning there was not enough food; ie 3 slices of cheese, 10 strips of bacon, and it was not being replenished. The rooms were spartan and less than basic, no electrical outlet available for my husbands cpap machine, no amenities whatsoever. One pillow each. Threadbare towels in the bathroom. We only stayed here because the experience in 2011 was good, and it was pretty close to the center of Emmen. We will not stay at this hotel again.

“Hotel ”

We book this hotel last minute via agoda. When we come to check in, we learn that agoda have refer this to which we found out from the reception guy. The reception guy seems a newbie also as he seems bit nervous. We were ask to pay the bills and we thought that we already paid to agoda. And we just need to pay the city tax to the hotel. But in the end, just a small misunderstanding. The room is quite clean, nice and comfortable. We enjoy the stay here. The wifi work out fine just you need to sign in all the time which is quite annoying sometimes. Breakfast is quite nice. They have quite many selection of bread, yogurt, fresh juices. But the fruits seems from the can and not the fresh fruits. There is some hot dishes also to choose from. The staff at restaurant is quite friendly and they smile a lot.

“Wind from 80's”

What to write about Hampshire Hotel in Emmen? Again, a hotel one didn't expect to see in a small Dutch town close to the German border. Friendly service especially at the reception, suprisingly good reastaurant, but an average breakfast. But the corridors and rooms. So simple - a flashback from the 80's. As well as the smell, a very strong smell of a detergent like in the beginning of the summer season in a three star hotel in a Greek beach destination.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Emmen

“a nice, clean, silent, green and bikers' town”

I have gone to Emmen in order to study visit our EU project. It is very nice hotel and place. Nice houses, nice roads (bicycle roads). Kind people and shops. The zoo was wonderful, especially butterflies and sharks. I saw peat for the first time. It was very impressive: there were not oil and there were peat :)
