Surroundings

Hampshire Hotel - Plaza Groningen lies in a stunning scenic area by the Hoornsemeer and Paterswoldsemeer lakes. You can enjoy a lovely cycling trip with hire bikes available at the hotel. It takes roughly an hour to cycle around the lakes. It's also nice to take a leisurely walk along the canal, where you can sit on the banks during the summer months and enjoy the passing boats. The historic city of Groningen is great to explore from the water. Roundtrip boats depart opposite the central railway station, and the city's intriguing nautical history is displayed in the Scheepvaartmuseum. Groningen city centre has a vibrant nightlife scene, for example around the Grote Markt, where you'll find the Grand Theater and the Drie Gezusters, the Kromme Elleboog where the Pintelier is located, and the Kattendiep, where you'll find the Irish Pub and the Casino.

Food & Drink

A breakfast buffet is available in the hotel's breakfast area on weekdays from 07:00 until 10:00, and at weekends from 07:30 until 10:30. You can enjoy a nice lunch at the hotel's restaurant Meerwold, which is recommended in the 2014 Michelin guide. The menu offers delicious and unusual dishes created by the chef. You can sample the chef's imaginative accomplishments in the restaurant's relaxing atmosphere. The menu changes on a regular basis and offers dishes such as smoked 'Zuidlaardermeer' eel. Only fresh, quality produce is used to prepare dishes. The kitchen is open for dinner from 17:00 until 21:00. You can enjoy a nice drink at the hotel bar, and the patio is open during nice weather.

Really helps to have a car
  • + For the price (70E n) it was a fantastic deal. If you don t have a car, your experience won t be as nice as public transport is at least half a kilometer away. Had a pool. Nice dinner. Perfectly acceptable breakfast with GREAT FRESHLY baked bread.
  • Hotel distance from Public transport. If you have a car you re 6 min from the center, but if you don t, you ll have at least .5 km walk to nearest public transport. Outside smelled of manure a bit, but not that bad.
  • * my tip Bring your own towels if you can for the pool. Provided ones are really small. Otherwise, it was a good experience with very little negative to say.

Honest opinion
  • + It was comfortable and peaceful. During our stay, we weren t bothered by anyone.
  • Frankly, it s overpriced. When I pay as much as the rooms this hotel offers, I expect a bit more. We could atleast have a refrigerator in the room. Also, the remote was not working properly. It was okay, but not worth the money.
  • * my tip You should take advantage of the pool.

GRONINGEN IS A NICE AND BEAUTIFUL TOWN TO VISIT
  • + Good hotel, good service, every body was very kind and good every thing. It's a little far of a City center but it's no problem, because you can arrive there in a few minutes, by bus or by car.
  • The breakfast was very expensive. We were a family of 4 members and it was so expensive. Maybe they could do a few disscount for numerously families.
  • * my tip If you don't want waste your euros in a expensive breakfast you will find many places in Groningen for a chipper breakfast .

  • They charge for sleeping in, even if you're working nights (most hotels don't) too far out for easy access to central Groningen, big faceless modern hotel chain.

Nice hotel not enough catering staff
  • Breakfast on Saturday morning was a disaster only two staff clearing away, was sent to a table that was occupied by other people.Then sent back to a table that was covered in uncleared dirty plates and cups.Had to ask for it to be cleared.No hot breakfast by the time it had been refilled we had had cold food and didn't wait.
  • * my tip Get down early for breakfast.

  • (Other)
Good base for a city break.
  • + The staff were very welcoming and very helpful. Excellent facilities including a good swimming pool and cycles for hire.
  • * my tip This is essentially a business/conference hotel, but works well as a weekend break if one is happy to cycle into the city or take the bus. It also avoids the issue of where to leave a car in the centre of Groningen. The rooms are large but businessmen don't need mirrors over the table and the large double bed is of the two singles in close proximity variety. But, the weekend offers are so good that this is hardly an issue. The restaurant was surprisingly good even on a Sunday evening.

  • + It's nice inside. The building is quite impressive for Groningen and the hall is relaxing.
  • I didn't like the room at all, the beds were the worst I have ever seen. The staff was not really friendly. They don't have any room service, you can't order a tea or something. And you need a car or taxi to go somewhere. I think the price for this hotel should be lower.

  • + nice equipment for a 3*-Hotel. Great number of juices at the breakfast buffet.
  • The bed was very uncomfortable! Between the 2 mattresses there was a slit of 5 cm, so snuggling up was impossible. :( (The double bed was made out of 2 single beds having wheels so it constantly moved apart in the middle.)
