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.

Museums
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.

Children
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.

Events
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.

Enjoy culinary delights and a convivial drink

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.

Hotelbar
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, but a bit outdated”

This is a large business hotel at the outskirts of Groningen. On the up side, the breakfast is very rich, the parking lot is free and can accommodate plenty of cars. On the down side, the room was very small and A/C was all but useless. A few wear and tear sings were clearly visible on the walls and carpets. The mattresses were very soft which, for me, means an aching back the next morning. There was hardly any room for luggage. The hotel operates a shuttle service to the city center and back, free of charge. However, the car is quite small and reservation are required in advance. English seemed to be a bit of an obstacle with some of the receptionists, which made the check out process quite slow.

“2 nights business”

A great looking hotel, and not too far from the train station in town (i even believe they run a curtesy bus from the train station every 20 minutes or so?). Reception where great, even though work in formed me they had booked a room, guess what they didn't.....but it was sorted with a fuss. The room was fantastic, bed as I like it soft mattress. The only down side if there was one (and it wasn't that much of an issue) was the quality of evening meal for the price you pay, it was a little dry and a little bland, but still edible.

“Nice hotel for the price”

Hotel was easy to get to, with some nice walking / biking paths around to walk the dog. Rooms are a little tight on walking space, but the shower was a decent size. Bed was ok in terms of comfort, only one pillow provided per person. Parking is free. Definitely a good budget hotel.
