    « Friendly and ideally situated »

    Despite our room being a little tired the bed was comfy and the shower warm. We only stopped for a night but it was nice to have only a short 2 minute walk to the cathedral square, where there are lots of nice places to eat. Quimper is well worth a visit.

    « Nice but noisy »

    We stayed three nights. The hotel common areas are very nice. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was good. There is onsite parking. Our room was nice and spacious. The bathroom was nice. The main problem was the noise from a bar down the street. Other rooms are apparently more quiet but the bar noise interfered with our sleep on the first and last night of our stay. Unless you are a heavy sleeper ask for a room as far from the bar as possible or go somewhere else.

    « Hotel needs to address noise issues »

    We stayed in Quimper for two nights early September 2016- Sunday and Monday night. As usual we had checked out the hotel reviews before booking. This hotel claims 4 star status. The first sight of the hotel was not inspiring- it is in a slightly scruffy area and the exterior views are nothing like as glamorous as on the website photos. The parking area is secure in the sense that there is a barrier preventing access, but not secure in so far as anyone can walk in from the street without being hindered or observed. The reception area is very pleasantly decorated, even chic, but could best be described as compact. The breakfast area is directly beside the reception desk, in a corner alcove of the lobby- not very appealing. We decided not to take breakfast in the hotel, preferring to eat in one of the many cafes nearby- more atmospheric and a lot cheaper. A small escalator led to the upper floors. We had booked the comfort double room, and had requested a quiet room. We were however given a room overlooking the street. The room was basic, clean and adequately equipped. The hotel amenities were perfectly OK- if it had been classed as a 2 or 3 star establishment. However the mere fact of claiming 4 star status on their website sets higher expectations. I did notice that the name plate outside the building only claimed 3 star status- closer to reality. For example, paper cups for the in-room coffee service is not 4-star. Neither is the fact that on both days the room service staff supplied only the bare amount to make 2 cups of tea or coffee. The WiFi was problematic, weak signal and an irritating log-on procedure, but that's not the end of the world. However Sunday evening was nearly the end of the world. Both nights of our stay were quite warm. There was no air conditioning in the room, and I could not see any fresh air vent anywhere. So we had to try to sleep with the windows open. However there is a bar on the corner of the street very close to the hotel, so well patronised that the customers overspilled into the street. The noise with the windows open was unbelievable. With the windows closed, the room was unbearably stuffy and warm. The noise eventually faded at around 3am. Being a Sunday night, we assumed this was just joie de vivre. However the following night, Monday was just the same. Again the noise went on until 2:30 am or so. It completely ruined our stay. On checking out Tuesday morning we told the gentleman at reception of our experience. He told us that this has been a problem ever since he had started in this hotel some 10 years ago. I asked why our request for a quiet room had been ignored- he said that "everyone asks for a quiet room". The hotel's gesture for our problems was to take out the overnight parking charge. This is just not adequate. In summary this hotel has great potential. It is well located in a charming city, close to tourist attractions and restaurants. But it does not deliver what it promises. The hotel would be better off claiming a more realistic star rating, so that expectations will be at a more realistic level. When you expect 2 stars, and get 3 star service, you are delighted. But not the other way round. Second, get rid of the paper cups. Third, provide air conditioning and/or proper room ventilation. And above all, do something with your city authorities to control the anti-social behaviour in your street. This is a residential street, and this problem is not an occasional one at weekends only, or times of festivals- and how the other residents put up with these noise levels is beyond my comprehension.

    « Initially off putting »

    We had booked this hotel before arriving in Quimper and frankly we were a little disappointed with the outside appearance of the property. It is situated in a narrow little street which has few other shops and business premises on it. The outside of the hotel does not match the inside, and if I had not booked it previously, frankly, I would have driven past and found somewhere else. To be more positive, the inside of the hotel is bright and friendly, the desk clerk was exceptionally helpful, the bedroom was large and very comfortable, and the self service breakfast was good value. Onsite parking was available for a charge, which was reassuring as the general surrounding area is a little intimidating. Maybe the management should spend a few euro on the exterior .

    « Good hotel, clean, comfortable and close to central Quimper »

    I booked on the Best Western website about 6 months in advance and was only offered a suite. Not having been to the area before I assumed that August was a busy time but when we arrived the hotel did not seem overly busy, so not sure why I had limited choice of rooms. Having said that our suite was very comfortable and spacious with separate sitting area with coffee machine, fridge, wardrobe and safe. Our bathroom had a bath with shower and there was a separate toilet. French doors from our room opened on to some steps which led to our own courtyard with patio furniture. Our room was at the back of the hotel and looked over the garden which also had patio furniture. Everything was spotless and coffee etc was replenished daily. Having read the other reviews, we had no problems with noise but maybe it was because we stayed mid-week (2nd to 4th August). Wifi worked perfectly adequately, although we had to log on each day. The public areas were spacious and well maintained. Breakfast was fine for us with a good selection of cereals, fruit and the usual continental fare including eggs. Parking next door was a bonus. It's not free but this was quite normal in most of the hotels we visited, and the hotel is just a short stroll to the centre of Quimper, where parking seemed to be a problem. All in all we enjoyed our visit to Quimper and would certainly consider returning to BW Quimper. Thank you to all the staff.

    « A pleasant stay in Quimper »

    My wife and I spent 3 nights here on our first visit to Quimper. Our room was good, but could have been improved by repair of towel hooks; some thought about health and safety around the shower, for example a non-slip mat and grab handles, as the shower was over the bath. There was nowhere to store clothes, apart from a hanging space. The room was quiet and adequately air-conditioned. The wi-fi whilst free required repeated log-ins and was slow at times. Breakfast was nice though quite simple. This was quite adequate for me but might disappoint someone with greater expectations. Parking beside the hotel was very good, though charged for. The location of the hotel was first class, very close to the main attractions of the town, which greatly impressed us. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

    « Great public rooms; dated bedrooms »

    We booked their mid-price (but quite expensive - I think 220 euros) room which had 'de luxe' in the title - when we told them on checking out that it wasn't a luxury room, the guy reception said 'it's just a name'.... hmmm. They offer car parking but then charge you (I think 7 euros). The public areas have been decorated smartly in a contemporary style and then the disappointment comes when you get to your room, which needs the same treatment. The corridors are dark and although movement seems to trigger the lights, when we came out of our room we had to stand and then walk in the dark before it lit up, which didn't seem very safe. At breakfast there was a buffet with a variety of the usual foods, disappointingly they couldn't produce sugar free muesli or cereal. A couple sitting next to us at breakfast who come to Brittany every year for a number of weeks said they felt this was the most disappointing place they'd stayed. Overall, probably ok if they refurb the rooms.

    « Good hotel, but too many annoyances »

    Hotel Kregenn is well located, within easy walking distances to many restaurants and sights. The hotel is modern, with attractive public spaces. Our "deluxe" room was generous in size, attractively furnished, and in good repair. There was an in-room safe, but no refrigerator. The breakfast buffet (13€ per person) seemed a bit pricy for a continental breakfast, but choices included three cereals, a selection of pastries and breads, yogurts, and some fresh fruits. Parking is an extra 7€/day. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Be aware: we booked our room at a prepaid, nonrefundable "early web special" rate, but significantly lower "last minute" rates were available before our arrival. However, the hotel has too many annoyances to rank above average. The advertised free wi-fi was repeatedly problematic, frequently loosing connectivity and requiring repeated sluggish logons. On many occasions, wi-fi was unavailable in the room (and sometimes in the lobby as well). The bed creaked and sagged noticeably toward the center. Housekeeping did not empty the trash, and did not restock the cups for coffe/tea. The in-room coffee options were limited to two servings of decaffeinated coffee. Using the shower predictably flooded the bathroom floor. Overall: an adequate but not great hotel.

    « Good friendly hotel, centrally situated. »

    We have stayed in this hotel previously. It is centrally situated for visiting Quimper. Unlike many French hotels, the car park is relatively easy to access with reasonable space. The few staff there are were very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The rooms are quite quirky and vary in size and amenities. To the left of the hotel is a bar which opens weekends. In rooms adjoining the bar, music can be heard until one in the morning. At the rear of the hotel is a wall courtyard which forms a very welcoming retreat. All in all a very good place to stay when visiting Qimper.

    « Lovely Hotel »

    Comfortable and clean. Spacious rooms with all mod cons. Conveniently located close to the cathedral and town centre. Very nice pond out the back which you could easily miss. Very lively pub around the corner. Would absolutely recommend it to a friend.

    « A jewel in Brittany! »

    Well located and run hotel on a quiet street in downtown of the exquisite city of Quimper, at the tip of Brittany: walking distance from train station, warm welcome and special attention by a dedicated family owned staff, great nice looking furnishing, nice background open air platform for breakfast and rest, what else could one ask for!

    « staff were great »

    Staff were great, breakfast really good, rooms very comfortable but with small French plumbing problems - all just 5 minutes walk to Quimper centre. Excellent break at a reasonable price. On site secure parking. Quimper OK if you,re a fan of galleries.

    « Very comfortable hotel. »

    We stayed here for two nights recently. Not the easiest hotel to find and in a bit of a back street which initially was off-putting but it is very close to the old town. I was also worried about parking but the hotel has its own car park available at a small cost. The interior is very smart and classy. The room really was very good with all you would need and decorated to a high standard. Our only issues were they didn't leave milk in the room ( although there was no problem getting some ) and the cups were paper. Breakfast was good, all you would expect from a French breakfast, of a good quality and plenty of it. The staff are excellent. Very helpful and extremely pleasant. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

    « Great hotel in great location »

    We were pleasantly surprised when we reached the hotel in the old city. It is owned by a lovely woman, Laure. Her son, Stanislaus, works at the front desk and speaks perfect English. She is there daily with hands on as well. We had a nice room on the interior as there was street construction and we did not want the noise. It was two blocks away from the cathedral and all the shopping and restaurants. The room was very clean, sleek, and contemporary. Nice flat screen TV on the wall; no refrig, but there is an electric water pot for tea only. Great shower, comfortable bed with crisp sheets and it was quiet! The hotel serves apparitifs and we also had a nice breakfast for 10 euros each. I found out they will serve you eggs if you ask for them, but it is in the fine print and no one said anything. I have read in other reviews that their breakfast was included, but ours was not. There is a nice garden in the back. Mother and son could not have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. A real plus for those who drive there--there is a secure parking lot attached for 7 euros a night. It seems like this would be a good business hotel as there is a separate room off the entry that would accommodate that. We definitely would return and recommend.

    « Not a chain hotel. »

    Although under the BW branding,this is evidently a family run type of hotel.The level of maintenance is very good,and the quality of service from Reception is more consistent with a proprietor than an employee. The location is very convenient for the delightful old town.The street is a little dingy,and shows evidence of the donkeys used to give rides to children. There is no sign of the noisy bar mentioned in old reviews.There is nothing at all dingy to see once inside the building.The public areas are elegant and modern without being too quirky.The little back garden with ferns and a pond is unexpected in a city centre. Our room(105) had a restful decor of brownish walls and floor,with verdegris painted furniture.The perspex type chairs are more comfortable than they appear.Other rooms (107) have a more conventional colour scheme and wood/upholstered chairs.Although in the modern style,the bathroom was practical,with a proper bath and a basin just large enough to be usable(and with a plug),and an excellent storage shelf. Lighting is free from depressing CFL units,and is sparkling bright in the bathroom.The bedroom,with dark walls,would benefit by some wall lights above the bed.The bed was most comfortable,and it was quiet at night.The room is equipped with a kettle,but,surprisingly,no fridge.The central type air conditioning was working(July). Breakfast emphasises quality rather than gross profusion.Eggs are the only hot food,and would be better advertised by not being in small print at the very bottom of the bill of fare.There are especially good local cheses and preserves.The bread is as expected in France,and there is a toaster and sliced bread for the English.The tea,in a cast iron teapot,is excellent ,especially if you do not destroy it with milk. I hope to return.

    « Excellent - Once inside the "Oasis" »

    The hotel reception and breakfast areas were truly beautiful with a sleek modern, yet warm, flair. The rooms were spacious, pristinely clean, beautifully furnished and quiet with lovely appointments. The included breakfast buffet offerings were fresh and closely monitored for replenishing. The son reception host and his mother owner were amazingly helpful, friendly, hardworking and efficient. Secure parking is also an option. Its an easy walk to the old city. The sole negative of the hotel was the street on which it was located which at first was off putting. However, this was quickly overlooked because of the outstanding service and ambience of Hotel Kreggan.

    « Perfect location. »

    Very nice hotel just outside the old city. Room was spacious, breakfast was very good. Room was quiet. Minor things: key card had to be reset several times, air conditioning required a Bachelor's degree and you had to read the fine print on the card on the buffet to know that breakfast included eggs.

    « Friendly, comfortable and well-appointed hotel. Recently refurbished. »

    The hotel's location is slightly un-prepossessing but that is more than compensated for by its appointments, comfort and friendly staff. There is a secure car park to the side of the hotel. We did not take breakfast at the hotel - preferring our more usual style of seeking an estaminet or brasserie for a simple cafe / croissant. we were on an extended motoring holiday and found the hotel and Quimper in general to be a great base for exploring Finisterre and Britanny. I would definitely use the hotel again and have no hesitation in recommending it.

    « Friendly staf, central location »

    I stayed one night in the hotel for business, although if you like comfort this definately could be a place for tourist use also. Staff was very helpful, clean rooms, good shower, comfortable bed. The city centre is only a short walk and the most popular bar in town is even closer (No worries i did not hear the party)

    A family style hotel with finely tasteful decoration and an aristocratic touch flavour personally managed my a caring and interested in every detail lady. I doubt whether one can find at similar price a better hotel in the region.
