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.

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.

“Peaceful yet super close to Groningen centre”

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times as we visit Groningen often to visit family and friends. We love the fact that it by a lovely lake with fabulous cycling routes on the doorstep. (you can hire bikes there) We also love the fact that it is only a couple of minutes into Groningen from there.. so it is peaceful and lively at the same time. Breakfast is excellent and the rooms are all very comfortable. Staff are efficient.

“Basic hotel outside the city center”

We were in Groningen with a group of friends for the weekend and because there was a promotion going on at the Hampshire Plaza this became our hotel of choice. The Hampshire Plaza is a little outside of the city center. We love the center of Groningen. When visiting Groningen by ourselves we would definitely pick a hotel in the center because it is a lot easier to experience Groningen to its fullest this way. The hotel provides a shuttle to the center and there is also a regular bus. Check in was smooth. My room was clean but very basic and small. The bed was a lit bit soft for my liking. The breakfast buffet was a nice surprise with a large variety of items to choose from. Although the hotel was excellent value for money, next time when visting Groningen we would stay in a hotel in the city center.

“Is an OK”

The place around the hotel is very quite and nice. Me and my wife stayed here for a couple of nights, the price was 120Euro per night. Great wifi. But we were surprised that our room didn't have refrigerator [mini bar] nor kettle to make tea-coffee. The socket were only two-plugins and when we ask for adapter, with three plugins, the Hotel desk manager had to look into what it seems is a collection of cables-charges in a box, which to my disappointment failed to get what we needed.

“nice hotel, bit outdated, at the outskirt of the city”

Having to stay weekdays for my work this Hotel is good value for money, The matras of my bed was a little too soft for my taste. The breakfast was very rich, the parking free. Wifi was not too strong for Skype, which was a pity, also for the kids at home

“Lovely Hotel”

Good value for money. The rooms are quite small but absolutely fine for a place to sleep for one night. The bathroom was clean with a good shower. The bed was perfectly comfortable. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the meal we were served was exceptional and good value for money. Breakfast was also good with a good range of both continental and cooked breakfast with breads and croissants. We were also pleased that our dog was welcome to stay with us.
