“One night stay in beautiful town”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel is situated in a lovely old town and recommended by Brittany ferries. There wasn't a great deal of parking it seemed, we got to the hotel around lunch and was fortunate to get a free space on the road outside the hotel. This was lucky as the spaces soon went.

The room was traditional style but with a large bathroom with a big shower and seperate toilet. A comfortable bed. No air conditioning but an open window sufficed. French television with a good selection of channels, no English ones. Room looked out onto the central courtyard.
Breakfast wasn't bad, average selection of continental food.
The staff where pleasant and helpful and spoke good English.

Overall a very nice stay and would recommend.

We arrived at the Hotel Gradlon in Quimper past midnight but received a warm, enthusiastic welcome from a charming young man at the front desk. He promptly checked us in and personally assisted my mother with her bags. The spotlessly clean rooms were lovely and befitting the overall antique, classy feel of the hotel. They featured comfortable beds with memory foam mattresses, coffee& tea amenities, nice bathrooms and free, well working WiFi. Breakfast was offered for an additional charge and we decided to go for it. Luckily, because the offerings went above and beyond the usual petit dejeuner we had enjoyed elsewhere. There were home made crepes with various fillings on the side, yoghurt a la maison, also home made, which my father wanted to drive 50 miles back for the next day it was so incredible. Of course there were local cheeses, cold cuts, individual glass jars of French jams and fresh fruit, cereals, croissants and baguettes as well. The overall presentation was also fabulous. At check-out the gentleman from the night before and the young man who served breakfast assisted us with great advise for our planned tour through the forest of Broceliande. The mid-town location just steps away from the gorgeous old town was perfect. Parking may be an issue there sometimes although we did not have a problem and found a great spot close by. Absolutely wonderful team and hotel - 5 stars all the way!

Room Tip: Due to the age of the building Hotel Gradlon does not have an elevator. Guests with physical restric...

Very close to town center but just far enough away to be quiet. Large, attractive room. Staff very helpful. Had to park nearby but not a problem. Good breakfast, included crepes. Highly recommend. Nice inner courtyard for open air relaxing.

Room Tip: First floor room #33 was just off the courtyard and very nice.

Stayed with my wife in the hotel gradlon for 3 nights may/june. Booked the hotel based on the reviews and weren't disappointed. The rooms were tastefully decorated overlooking a quiet courtyard. The location is excellent easy walking distance into the town and a good base for exploring brittany. We hadn't booked parking at the hotel but had no problem on finding a space for our car. We arrived on a Friday morning and had to park a little way away (2-3 minutes) but it was much quiter at the weekend and we were able to park opposite the hotel for the rest of our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful (also spoke English).

Ideal location for exploring the city with good access to city centre, sights and restaurants. Decent room, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Only problem was parking, but we paid to use the hotel garage which was fine. Hotel is recommended.

I was unsure if I would be able to visit Quimper when I made this reservation, so I opted for the extra money and peace of mind for free cancellation. Apparently, I am the only one who was aware of this. Although I alerted booking.com to this fact and they spoke with the hotel, the hotel refused to help me at all and is steadfastly charging me for the ENTIRE stay even though I have been trying to cancel this booking 3 days prior to check in. It's disappointing when a hotel cannot work with you at all, maybe charging me for half the cost of stay, or even upgrading my room upon my next visit. With management like this, I suppose it's fortunate I missed out on this hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights in August and were impressed. A good sized room with a modern bathroom. Staff were very helpful and recommended (and booked) restaurants and were a mine of information on the town. Breakfast was a very good buffet. They have only one space for parking so you will need to be lucky to get that but the street outside has free parking and we managed to park there every day. The location is suberb - literally a 5 minute walk to the centre. Thoroughly recommend.
