"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"nice hotel, bit outdated, at the outskirt of the city"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.



Groningen is a bustling city where there’s always something to do and experience. From visiting interesting museums to admiring the sights like the Martini Tower and the Prinsentuin garden. Want to add a day’s shopping to your plans? Groningen has more than enough great shops to complement your wardrobe. Groningen has a long history, which is apparent among other things from the many historic warehouses, the atmospheric courtyards forming an oasis of peace in the centre, and the old yacht port which you will find in the centre of the city. Also head off to enjoy a drink at the Drie Gezusters on the Grote Markt. This is absolutely the café in Groningen where every student and Groningen resident has sat at one time or another.


Groningen has a whole range of interesting museums. If you head to Groningen by train and arrive at one of the most beautiful stations in the Netherlands, you cannot miss the impressive premises of the Groninger Museum. The Groninger Museum is well-known with internationally-renowned exhibitions and a permanent, impressive art collection which is certainly worth taking in. In Groningen you can also visit the cheerful Nederlands Stripmuseum Groningen. This museum is devoted entirely to comic-book heroes over the years, and is fun not just for the adults, but for the children too. Animal lovers can head to the Muzeeaquarium in Delftzijl: a museum with large aquariums full of fish, crustaceans and molluscs.
