The Hampshire Hotel - Plaza Groningen is located close to the city centre and close to the nature reserve "Hoornse Meer" and easily accessible from the A7 and A28 motorway. Exit Groningen Zuid. A modern purpose built hotel. The entrance is under a piramid of glass that brings lots of natural light. The lobby is very arge and welcoming. Decorated in black & greys in modern style. A good hotel in a good location ideal exploring for Groningen and it's surrounding areas. The surrounding are of the Hoornse Lake is ideal for cycling walking and generally enjoying all the beauty of nature. The rooms are large in size and of a good standard they are decorated in blue and yellow and have a good size work desk and spacious bathrooms. The restaurant is located on the ground floor and is modern in style and decor and is complete with a terrace area facing a very nice green area. It serves international cuisine and there is also a large bar serving light snacks.
I like the design of the building construction.
The hotel was quite good value for money, the service was fairly good and the room and bed both comfortable.
It was located further from town than I would have liked. The room could definitely have had tea/coffee making facilities and I found the lack of this annoying. On my second day my room was not made up. Some used towels were removed but not replaced, used tea cups were not removed and the bed not made. There is no excuse for this. Also on the second day there was no hot water in the morning due to a fault, which was obviously a nuisance. At breakfast everything was removed in an instant exactly on the dot of closing, giving no time for 'seconds', even though there was still lots of food available. I can understand closing the dining room doors at this time but I thought it was extremely poor service to remove everything so quickly.
Very kind personal
Clean and very nice rooms
no transport to the city center
Comfort, value for money, breakfast, bicycle hire. Free parking. Easy to find, short bicycle ride into the town.
The promotional prices was good, also liked the swimming pool.
The room was not very clean and the window itself was completely dirty, with spiders and their web. Looked awful. Also missed the minibar.
Carpeting throughout hotel stained and in need of replacement. Somewhat isolated. Need car or taxi to get around. Could use some drnk/snack machines.
Modern, great architecture and location
One of the cupboards was dirty
More business related hotel: efficient but cold.
