Hampshire Hotel Plaza Groningen Reviews
Nice for businesspeople and tourists alike Sep 12, 2011
This chain of hotels has two locations in Groningen one in the centre and one just outside the centre. This is a description of the hotel just outside the centre, where I’ve stayed a couple of times for work.
The hotel is beautifully situated in a very nice landscaped area called ‘Hoornse Meer’. The higher up your room is, the better your view of this area.
It is a large hotel that is mainly focused on business people, but you certainly wouldn't be standing out coming here as a tourist.
On the first floor is a huge seating area, in the back is large restaurant. I’ve eaten several times in this restaurant and although the food is great, it is a bit too posh and uptight for my taste. I prefer things to be a bit more casual. The vegetarian lasagna is great, the pasta dish with asparagus is divine. From my colleague I learned that they constantly screw up the French fries that are served as a side dish, they bake them too hard.
The bar is located in an open area on the second floor, I’ve never been here before.
The rooms are very comfortable and stylishly decorated, the bed has a great mattress. I thought it to be a bit weird I had to ask for a hairdryer at the reception desk, but there were no other problems. The bathroom is a bit cramped, but clean. Every time I stayed here, it was wonderfully quiet in the evening when I stayed in my room to watch television or a movie on my laptop.
