Hotel

The welcoming Best Western Plus Hotel Groningen Plaza has everything in store for a pleasant and relaxing stay. Hotel staff are happy to be of assistance and will gladly offer you tips and advice about excursions in the area. Why not enjoy a typically Dutch cycling trip? Bikes are available for hire at reception and the hotel has a covered bike rack. Hotel guests are able to make free use of the heated indoor swimming pool. The hotel offers generous parking facilities and the bus stop is only a 5-minute walk away. A 15-minute bus journey will take you to Groningen Central Station.

The rooms come with blackout curtains and are well insulated; a pleasant and quiet environment allowing you to wake up the following morning feeling completely refreshed!

Surroundings

Best Western Plus Hotel Groningen Plaza 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.

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. Sample imaginative culinary feats in the restaurant's relaxing atmosphere. The menu changes on a regular basis and only fresh, quality produce is used. The kitchen is open for dinner from 17:00 until 21:00. You can enjoy a nice drink in the hotel bar, and the outdoor terrace is open during nice weather.

    Perfect hotel for a day or two to visit Groningen and surroundings

    The quiet location, bike rental, swimming pool, and the high quality of the hotel.

    No minus points. However the road to the hotel is under construction, this could be better.

    “My tip: Rent a bike at the hotel and combine a visit in Groningen with a healthy and green stay.”

    Breakfast was very nice, and well presented, and organised. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

    Asked could I stay 1 extra night, but was quoted 106,without breakfast. Felt it was a little bit greedy,for a Tuesday night.

    A hotel near the biggest lake (Hoornsemeer) in Groningen

    Best value for money Neat and clean rooms Aesthetic design Nice swimming pool Tasty buffet breakfast

    Public transport is a small walk away but convenient by personal vehicle and also very close to the highway

    Groningen Hotel

    Friendly, helpful front desk staff. Bountiful breakfast with some hot items and many cold items. Free shuttle to Centraal Station on weekends saves you about 15 Euros in cab fare.

    Room had not been cleaned properly no water glasses in room, coffee stain on the coffee table, TV remote was on the shelf below behind the hotel directory. Free shuttle to Centraal Station only runs on weekends.

    “My tip: Allow up to 15 minutes for cab to arrive at hotel after being called by front desk.”

    Great Hotel A

    - Clean and heated swimming pool opened from 6AM till 10PM - Clean sheets en towels everyday. - Friendly staff - Supermarket 10 minutes walking distance

    - No mini fridge or coffee maker in room

    “My tip: There is a Albert Hein Super Market walking distance from the hotel to pick up anything you need. The restaurant and mini bar is also really nice and reasonably priced.”

    A very relaxing atmosphere

    Excellent value, we got a free breakfast in the deal - buffet with everything you could want and all very fresh. Lovely surroundings, and plenty of free parking. Shuttle service at no cost into the centre was a real bonus.

    We did have a cheaper room and beds were not so comfy.

    “My tip: Lovely lunch in hotel restaurant. ”

    stewards were friendly but speak only two languages, dutch and english. I tried to speak french it was impossible.

    diner at restaurant was not really enjoying. meal not bad but not really very good. The choice is also not really efficient. Breakfast was very good. The persons don t do any effort to be understandable for stranger speaking something else than dutch.

    “My tip: The hotel is really very near the centrum of Groningen. services and tip tricks can be very good.”

    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 .”
