Back from 3 weeks of sightseeing in Brittany, 10 glorious days of which were spent in Quimper at The Hotel Kregenn. Their staff was so gracious, welcoming and helpful! Stanislaus manages the desk during the week and he is a gem! He also speaks very good English and can assist with directions and suggestions. The hotel has an elevator.
The rooms are small, but well appointed compared to many French hotels. The room had a hairdryer, generously sized towels, bars of soap and gel soap...and the petit dejeuner served each morning had a wide selection of breads, jams, yogurt, fresh fruit, sliced fruit, eggs to hard boil, meats, cheeses, juices, teas and coffees. It was always a great start to each day!
Behind the breakfast room, there's a small garden with a koi pond in which to sit and relax with your cup of coffee. There's also a comfortable and intimate lounge off of the lobby.
The hotel is located an easy walk from the train station and a few blocks from the Cathedral St. Corentin on the place (or town square). Located around the place is The Beaux Arts Musee, a pharmacy, restaurants and the famous Art de Cornouaille shop. There you can shop for postcards, aprons, the famous Breton cookies & caramels and Quimper faience, old and new! (You have to ask to see the old pottery.)
Along the walk to the place, there are some delightful cafes and art galleries. If you're tired and hungry, heading out the hotel front door, turn right and a couple of doors down on the same side of the street is a small, family owned Italian restaurant.
We think you'd enjoy a stay at The Hotel Gregann! Bonne journee! less
