City Hotel Winschoten with kids: a review!

When we visited the province of Groningen with our daughter, we looked for fun activities for kids in the province. We have since also written the blog province of Groningen with kids about this. Near Winschoten are two fun playgrounds worth visiting if you are visiting the province of Groningen. Because we wanted to stay near Winschoten, we came across City Hotel Winschoten online. Based on our overnight stay at this hotel, we are writing this review!

The hotel

Winschoten is located in the east of Groningen just over half an hour’s drive from the city of Groningen. If you are looking for a hotel in Winschoten, there is only one hotel that also offers rooms for families with kids: the City Hotel Winschoten. This hotel is located opposite the Winschoten train station, so it is also easily accessible by train. We came by car and we can park the car under the hotel for free. From the parking lot, you’ll be at the reception desk in seconds.

We are kindly received by the owner of the hotel, who takes us to the room. The owner tells us that the hotel has only just opened and they are still busy getting all the rooms and all the areas in the hotel in order. We should actually come back in a year when everything is completely remodeled to see how it has become then, says the owner.

Opposite the hotel are large white letters of the place where we are: Winschoten. Sophie enjoys going to have a look and we have to say that we also always like it when a city has this somewhere. It’s always fun to take a picture and kids see a climbing device right away in the letters!

The room

We had booked a 3-bed room, where there were three single beds in the room. Two of the beds could in principle still be placed against each other, but as we were quite late in the hotel and also very tired we did not do so. What we found a big plus of the room is that there was a bathtub in the room. The ladies of the family love bathing, so of course they took advantage of this!

In addition, the room has a smart TV, refrigerator and a kettle. There is also a good WIFI connection in the room which we also always think is important. The room is also quite spacious, so you can easily put your suitcases in the room.

Food and drink in hotel

The hotel offers overnight accommodations with breakfast. It is not (yet) possible to have lunch or dinner at the hotel. However, it is only a few minutes’ walk from the hotel to the center of Winschoten, where of course you do have plenty of eateries to eat at lunchtime and in the evening. Of course, there are also plenty of supermarkets nearby. We got some sandwiches with different cheeses from the supermarket in the evening and ate it in the room.

In the morning it is possible to eat in the dining room downstairs. Breakfast is delicious and there is enough choice to leave the hotel with a well-filled stomach. They also have plenty of choices for kids at breakfast!

Conclusion

If you are looking for a hotel in the east of Groningen, the City Hotel Winschoten is a great choice. The hotel is still busy getting everything in order, so we are curious to see what the hotel will look like in a year, for example! In any case, the owners’ plans are great and are definitely geared toward families as well! For more information about the hotel, rooms and rates check out the hotel’s website here.
