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.

“Comfortable but average”

This was my second stay at your hotel; the previous stay was about five years ago. Everything, from check-in to check-out, was efficient, clean and orderly. However, we had the feeling that everything was a bit spartan, especially when we came down for breakfast. I would think that for a hotel of this caliber there would be a wider selection, e.g., omelettes / eggs cooked to order.

“Good stay”

The Hampshire hotel is a good hotel located at a few kilometers from the center of Groningen. I was on a road trip through the netherlands and I made a stop in Groningen for two nights to explore the north. It was a really nice stay. The personnel is friendly. The rooms are nice, quiet, clean and comfortable. There's Tv, free wifi and free parking.

“The rooms are not like the lobby”

The lobby is very beautiful, but our room was small and a little noise. The bed and pillows are unconfortable. The bathroom really need to be renovated and the towels are very old and not properly clean. The breakfast is poor, just the basic basic.
 of 5 stars
“Good Stay but we are fussy”

We stayed two nights the meals excellent the location great no parking issues plenty of free parking spaces. The bathrooms for us were not as clean as we require so we changed rooms only to find level 4 to 5 was not much of an improvement. Don't be put off, this was a great place to stay and the views are superb and big rooms. But if traveling by bus to town get a bus route as the return ride may be different to the way in. We took a No. 6 in and a No. 8 return!
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Plaza Groningen
Dear Keith, Thank you very much for your review on TripAdvisor. We like to see you once back at our hotel. Kind regards, Team Hampshire Plaza

“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.
