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, but fairly drab”

Pros: Located in a quiet corner of the city centre. Staff are friendly. Cons: Looking a bit old and worn. Room was dimly lit, especially the bathroom. The toilet in our room had been fixed to the wall at an odd angle. No kettle in the room, €2.50 for coffee from the machine downstairs. Bed was two single beds pushed together, with separate quilts (although it does stop my wife from stealing it during the night!).

“Lovely view over the canal, expensive breakfast, questionable cleanliness”

The rooms are lovely and large, and the beds very comfortable. We had a room with lovely huge windows which overlooked the canal and we enjoyed this aspect very much. The cleanliness standard was low - we had two rooms, and both had stained carpet and large dust balls around the edges. A coat was dropped beside the desk and was filthy, covered in dust, when picked up. There was a coffee spill in the stairs for the 24 hours that we stayed there. We declined breakfast as it was unreasonably expensive. Staff, on the other hand, were pleasant and helpful. Be cautious when booking. There are 2 Hampshire Hotels very near each other. This is the larger, fancier one. They are only 2 blocks apart, so easy to mistake when looking on a map.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Groningen Centre
Dear JanTravel_4, Thank you for your review! First of all it's nice to read that you enjoyed the view and the quality of the staff. Unfortunately not everything had the quality we are used to deliver. The stains in the carpet are known and we are working on that. We have forwarded your complaint about the overall quality of the housekeeping to our head of housekeeping. We want our guests to enjoy their stay in a clean and fresh room. We realy hope that we can welcome you some other time in one of our rooms to let you experience the quality we want to deliver! Kind regards, Team Hampshire Hotel Groningen

“Good location but. Shade pricey”

This is a nice hotel in an ideal location. Clean with good sized rooms but I thought it a bit pricey for this standard of hotel. Avoid the vastly overpriced breakfast and take a 5 minute walk for better quality and better value. Did like the all day availability of free tea and coffee though.

Dear Ian M., Thank you for your review! It's nice to read that you enjoyed our hotel. We hope to welcome you again in our hotel, maybe you can try our breakfast because it's worth it! Kind regards, Team Hampshire Hotel Groningen Centre

“Spacious, clean, comfortable”

We were given a massive room, which probably could have fitted another bed. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was within walking distance of 15 minutes of the city centre so quite convenient. The area was quiet, which was a massive plus, considering its a student town. The pubs are open 24 hours so those who like to go out at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend buying water from the hotel, which was 1EUR, as its quite expensive in the shops.
