Ideal hotel for a weekend in Groningen

Hampshire Hotel – Groningen Centre is ideal for a weekend in Groningen. It is situated on the edge of the historic city centre, so rather close to all the conviviality but not in the middle of all the bustle. You step out of the hotel and within a few minutes you arrive at the most attractive shops, convivial cafés, fantastic restaurants and interesting sights. One of the things you simply have to have on your list is the Groninger Museum. The much-discussed building from Italian architect Alessandro Mendini and three guest architects is worth a visit in itself.

Groningen has a lot to offer. You can climb the 97-metre-high Martinitoren, wander along the historic almshouses, canals and warehouses and enjoy a performance in the Stadsschouwburg or De Oosterpoort. If you want to leave the city, you can walk and cycle in the polders and nature reserves just outside Groningen. Here you can find impressive Mediaeval castles, such as the Fraeylemaborg. And after your busy day you can unwind in the cosy lounge at Hampshire Hotel – Groningen Centre.

Historic city centre of Groningen

Hampshire hotel – Groningen Centre is on the edge of the historic city centre of Groningen. Just a stone’s throw away you will find a host of interesting, fun and attractive things to do. You can shop till you drop, enjoy café terraces and wander through the university city. Other suggestions for a day in Groningen and surroundings:

It can’t go unmentioned: the Groninger Museum. Be surprised by the special exhibitions and impressive art collection. In Brugstraat there are two historic buildings from the fifteenth century: the Gotische Huis and the Canterhuis. These buildings are the home of the Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum, where the history of shipping from the Middle Ages comes to life. To meet your comic strip heroes, you can visit Het Nederlands Stripmuseum Groningen; from Donald Duck to Jan, Jans en de Kinderen; they are all there.

Places of interest
If you walk up the steps of the 97-metre-high Martinitoren, you are rewarded with a beautiful view across the city, and with good weather even across the whole province. The city also has some thirty almshouses, the courtyards of every one being an oasis of peace. The former monastery Prinsenhof is an impressive complex situated in the Martinikerkhof. At the rear is the Prinsentuin, a beautiful renaissance garden full of roses and herbs.

In Familiepark Nienoord near castle Nienoord children can play in the playground, or take a ride on a horse, tractor or scooter. Another fun amusement park for the kids is Sprookjeshof in Zuidlaren. It has a playground, children’s farm, gnome-themed clamber castle and a covered section, so it’s also a great day out if the weather’s poor.

The province of Groningen offers stunning cycle trips. A beautiful trip is the Hoogeland discovery route (20 kilometres) through North Groningen. The trip to Hoornse Plas is also beautiful. The hotel has bicycles for hire.

“Good location, friendly staff and quiet hotel”

I was recommended this hotel by my colleagues at Groningen and ended up choosing at as it had a pay 2 for 3 nights when I booked it. It is very conveniently located, only a 10 min walk from the train station. Once in the hotel you can rent a bike which is a must in this bike-friendly city. The breakfast buffet was pricey (€15) but tea and coffee are free of charge at all times. The staff were always very helpful. Yes, I would recommend Hampshire Hotel Groningen Center for anybody visiting Groningen!

“Comfort, with great customer service.”

I've just spent 4 nights in this great hotel. Can't rate it highly enough. Had a lovely big room, over looking the canal on the first floor. Spotlessly clean and a really great bathroom. The shower was big enough for at least 2 people! Lots of soft clean towels, loads of hot water at a good pressure which is always a bonus. The breakfast buffet is very extensive, catering for all tastes with a really good selection of hot and cold food. I particularly liked the spanish omlette and range of breads. One of the real plus points was the coffee/tea available in the cafe 24/7. The Dutch certainly know a thing or two about proper coffee and you could help yourself when ever you wanted a drink. The staff were all delightful and spoke perfect English. I loved the fact that I could control the temperature in the room. It was pretty cold and wet for a couple of days, so really great to be able to adjust the radiator to suit, and have somewhere to dry my coat and hat! A great location for exploring the town and only about a 10 minute walk to the station, which suited me perfectly. I loved Groningen. Lots of things to do and see and a range of places to eat to suit your budget. The Groninger museum is an absolute must! I had a ticket for the stunning "David Bowie Is" exhibition that has been extended untill 10th April, and I took the opportunity to look spend several hours looking round at the other exhibitions. Perfect for a cold wet day. My love affair with the Netherlands has been re-kindled and I hope to be staying at the Hampshire Hotel again one day.
