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.

“Nice hotel, located in unique area of outstanding natural beauty and still on a comfortable distant of city centre.”

Modern, clean and nicely located hotel. Rooms are complete but not very spacious. The restaurant on the other hand is something you could expect in a 5 star hotel. Super food and pleasant service. Breakfast was outstanding in a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. Must stay if you want to visit the Groninger Museum or the old city center. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus to those destinations. We will come back..

“Visting Groningen our second best (couintryside) city after Maastricht”

We booked the Hampshare Plaza hotel, because they are ideallyu situated at the border of the (student) city of Groningen.and quite close to the Germanborder. It is only 20 minutes by Car. Groningen has loyts of fine restaurant and bars, the atmosphere is just great. The hotel is absolutely surprising. On arrtiavl staff is welcoming you with open arms. Most people are locals and locals in the North of Holland are great people. Our room was fine, bed excellent, nice bathroom, internet, wifi everything available. We didn't miss a thing. In two words: Most advicable..

“Near nature, good business hotel.”

The hotel is in a beautiful surroundings near the highway, so it is not located in the city center. There is a shuttle bus in the weekends and the hotel has rental bikes which will take you to the centre of town in about 15 minutes. I stayed on a week day, when the hotal was mainly populated by business people. As Groningen is 'far away from everything' for Dutch standards, many people stay over when they have to work here. The room was adequate. There were some visible stain removals in the carpet and the shower was as clean as I expect from a 3 star venue - even though there was still some trash from previous guests in the bin. The rooms are not big, but big enough for a bit of TV watching before bed and sleeping. There is a small desk in the rooms. I didn't hear other guests, but my room was next to cabinet for cleaning supplies. The hotel restaurant and bar are good, friendly service and good choice of meals. The breakfast buffet is standard European choices of good quality food. It is situated in a beautiful area which is great for a walk after dinner or a run. The hotel has an agreement with a nearby fitness centre that lets guests go there for reduced price. The hotel itself only has an indoor pool.

“More like a 4 star”

We have just spent a long weekend at this hotel which listed as a 3 star but it's better than that, the food would not be out of place in a 5 star,the rooms are small but clean and comfy The only draw back it is quite a long way from the city centre, but in the summer I should imagine it is nice walk. The staff are so friendly and helpful nothing and nothing is to much trouble and I would also recommend up grading to the breakfast it is well worth the extra there is so much choice.........

“2015 Stay”

I stayed in 2015 for 2 nights. The hotel is very nice and clean. However the location is not ideal. The hotel was quite cheap, however when you have to pay a lot on taxis it might be cheaper to just stay in the City Centre hotel. In regards to the hotel itself, the rooms are comfortable and designed very nice. From the outside the hotel looks very nice at night time.
