The hotel was in an ideal location close to the centre and walking distance to the rail station, the staff were friendly, helpful and always greeted us with a smile, even saw the manager in the city and he made the effort to say hello.

No atmosphere whatsoever, hotels OK, helpful staff, good rooms, secure motorcycle parking (expensive). It's got a bar but no draught beer. 5 minute walk from City centre with ample bars and restaurants, 10 minute walk to the train station (easy access to Assen). Breakfast not until 8.00 am at weekends (and it's 15€).

Pleasant city hotel , clean , comfy , nice breakfast but nothing fancy . Decor looks old as you get past reception but don't let that put you off . No reason why I wouldn't go again . Some of the hotel room views were poor ie staircases and brick wall , so ask for a room with a view... More

Stayed at Hampshire City Hotel. Nice quiet location in the inner city. Room typical of the hotel Star rating, bathroom clean. Breakfast okay, mainly continental but you could have cooked. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Stayed for 4 nights midweek. Good location in the city centre, good walking distance to everything really, bars, restaurants and even the great toy shop, Asbran, just over the road. The hotel was ok, very friendly staff and breakfast was fine. The standard room I had was very basic and squished into a corner. The flooring is some kind of... More

I was at the Hampshire city hotel for two nights and the welcome at my arrival was excellent. During my stay I had good interaction and help with the hosts. My room was comfortable, expect the pillow that was too big :) I like to sleep on my belly.

Simply good. Not excellent, but good. The system tells me ot fill up unto 200 "characters", which takes my time. Time I'd rather like to spend on planning my next stay, maybe in a Hampshire Hotel. Maybe.

We enjoyed nice three days in Groningen with a really good breakfast as a base for our tours! The sauna was excellent and your stuff is really friendly and professionell. We will revisit you soon. (Only the bikes should have better breaks.)
