Situated in a nature reserve and close to the city

All you have to do is step outside the hotel and you are in the middle of the beautiful nature reserve around Hoornse Meer. Paterwoldsemeer is also close-by, which means there’s more than enough choice for an energetic walk or cycle trip. The centre of Groningen is easy to reach by public transport and car. In short, more than enough to see, do and experience.

If you take the train to the city, you can’t miss the imposing Groninger Museum building. Come and see it from the inside too! There are continuously interesting exhibitions, and the fixed collection is impressive. Cheerful museums are the Nederlands Stripmuseum Groningen with all its comic strip heroes and Muzeeaquarium in Delftzijl with aquariums full of fish, crustaceans and molluscs.
History Historical heritage can be found everywhere. Highlights in the city centre include the Martinitoren, the Hoofdstation, the Goudkantoor and the Prinsenhof. Some 16 of the province’s original 180 stately homes remain. The most well-known four, Fraeylemaborg, Menkemaborg, Landgoed Nienoord and Verhildersum, are open to the public.

In the covered Apekooi (monkey cage) playground children can, you’ve guessed it already, climb and clamber like small monkeys. They are allowed on bare feet in ’t Blôde Fuottenpaad in Opende.

Each August you can enjoy the Indian Summer during the Festival Noorderzon. For ten days there are numerous shows and (theatre) performances both in the fairy-tale Noorderplantsoen and in the city centre. On the last Saturday in August, the ZomerJazzFietsTour starts. A unique combination of a cycle trip through the Reltdiepdal and jazz concerts in Mediaeval churches and farm sheds.

Restaurant Meerwold
One glance at the menu says it all: this is cooking at the highest level. A terrine of smoked salmon with La Ratte potatoes and saffron mayonnaise, beef carpaccio with truffle tapanade, Reypenaer VSOP fries and fennel crudités; the choice is yours. The Head Chef works with local quality produce as much as possible, such as the Zuidlaardermeer eel. He is continually developing new dishes, which means the menu also changes regularly. Restaurant Culinas is open seven days a week from 7.00 am to 9.00 pm.

Enjoyed a delicious dinner in Restaurant Meerwold but still fancy a last drink? Or maybe its time for early evening drinks? For a delicious drink you can visit the stylish hotelbar. When the weather's fine, you can enjoy sitting outside on the terrace.

“Lovely setting, good food”

I have stayed here a couple of times for a week at a time. The setting is attractive for pleasant evening strolls along the canal or around the lake behind the hotel. The decor is very artistic. The breakfast is good and dinner as well althought the wine selection is weak. You can walk into town along the canal in about a half hour. I would rate it higher but there was an invalid charge on my credit card that it is taking them more than a week to resolve.

“Incredibly uncomfortable”

To be fair, I'll start with the positives. They had free parking and the hotel location is easy off the interstate yet close enough to the center to take advantage. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were spacious, and the lobby was incredibly beautiful. I wish they had put as much care into the rooms as they did the lobby because that's where the quality stopped. We had a huge corner room with a beautiful view of the water, but the accommodations were of very poor quality. Gleaming in the sun were fingerprints over every surface, in addition to a noticeable layer of dust. The bathroom floor clearly had only light surface cleaning done and was in serious need of a really good scrub. The towels were disgusting and very thin; mine had a brown stain, and since my husband had already used the only other bath towel, we had to share. The bed was horribly uncomfortable and sagged pretty bad in the middle, and along with lumpy pillows, neither of us got any sleep. I would avoid this place at all costs.

“Great hotel in great location”

We were met by a very friendly staff who listen to our wishes. The hotel is kind of spectacular from the inside because you can see all floors upwards. The rooms are nice and have everything you´ll need. The location are great if you search for quiet, but there is a bit into the city, a car would be preferred, at this hotel there are a lot of parking spots. The total price was also amazing and I am glad we selected this hotel.

“Very good for a stopover”

Good quality hotel located in a park on the outskirts of Groningen No fuss no problems and nice quiet room if you are breaking the journey. Staff helpful and polite and if you want to go in to the city it is only €10 or so in a taxi Plenty of car parking spaces especially at weekend and easy access to the motorway system

“Great Hotel By The Lake Just Outside Groningen”

The Hampshire Hotel Plaza Groningen is situated by the popular lake Hoornsemeer. The amenities are nothing particularly special, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. The first time, we choose this hotel to be close to the hospital. The second time, because of the great experience we had the first time. Before visiting this hotel, we preferred the Hampshire Hotel City Centre. Now, this is our go-to hotel in Groningen.
