Aduard - De Gastheerd: close to the city of Groningen
We made a reservation in a hotel in Aduard, but due to an overbooking we were transferred to ‘De Gastheerd’ (or Guesthouse), also in Aduard. Afterwards we were very happy with it, because the hotel didn’t have too much charm. Completely different from the B&B, which is situated in an old (19th century) gentleman’s farmhouse.
It has 4 bedrooms, which share the spacious and modern bathroom (double wash basins, shower and bath), a breakfast room, which also can be used for reading a book or preparing the next day trip. It also offers a garden and a kind of orchard and it is possible to rent a bike to explore the surroundings of Aduard/Groningen.
Three spacious rooms are € 68, per night; we had a smaller one and had to pay € 58,-
There is also an self contained apartment in the ‘barn’ behind the main house.
The B&B is for sale on the moment (June 2007), so if you want to stay here, you will have to hurry.
Very good breakfast and very nice hosts (JoAnn and Hans van Seventer).
Excellent location to visit the city Groningen (we did it by bike, but you can also take your car or the bus) and the countryside of north and northwest Groningen.
