Dear Guest,
We appreciate that you share with us your experience at the Escale Oceania Hotel in Quimper.
Our breakfast offers a large variety of food, with coffee, milk, cereals, pastries, bacon, sausages, cheese, ect...If guest just wants a coffee or tee we have a separate bar open 24h/24h.
The restaurant wasn’t open when you came; in fact we chose to close it when we have groups to offer more tranquillity to our individual client by proposing a room-service everyday from 7.00 p.m to 11.00 p.m.
We hope that you will come back in our Escale Oceania hotel.
Best Regards,
Le Directeur

Reviewed 27 May 2013

Stayed two nights on the basis of reviews in tripadvisor. Very comfortable room though separate toilet room and bathroom which felt strangely inconvenient. Very high standard of fittings and truly the best shower set I've ever experienced in a hotel. Small window looking out into a tiny internal yard - so very quiet.

Free fast WiFi - brilliant.

Superbly situated close to all the city sights just a few minutes walk away.

Wasn't able to sample the evening menu in the hotel as both nights the restaurant was fully booked with large groups. Mind you there are lovely restaurants and creperies nearby so not a problem.

Slight irritations were over-dedicated room cleaners ignoring "do not disturb" indicators and a room key that stopped working. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Breakfast was standard - coffee out of a machine was disappointing for a hotel of this calibre, but otherwise the food was fair enough. Had a bit of an accident with a "hard boiled egg" which turned out not to be!

Dear client,
We would like to thank you for taking time to tell us about your stay at l’Escale Oceania of Quimper and we are glad to see that you spend a nice stay.
Our rooms are very comfortable and the separation beetwen toilet room and bathroom is essential for a 3 stars hotel and garanty a major comfort and privacy for our guests.
We are sorry that the room cleaner disturb you : for the next time you just need to push up the button on your frontdoor. Like this, It will be impossible for anyone to open the door.
Concerning the coffee, next time don’t hesitate to ask at the barman a real expresso : we have a good italian machine to make it.
We are looking forward to see you soon in our Escale Oceania Hotel in Quimper.
Best Regards,
Le Directeur

Stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights 19th, 20th May 2013. Excellent parking in public garage next door to Hotel, locked at night but able to access for early start back to ferry port 6E for 24 hours. All the staff were lovely, very helpful. Hotel was spotless all areas. Our room was on second floor, no view but clean and quiet. Lovely shower. Breakfast was very good, wide choice, even bacon, eggs and sausage if you wanted it. Easy 5 min stroll into centre of Quimper, beautiful city, and so many lovely places to visit nearby. Would definitely stay again, can't wait to go back.

The hotel is clean comfotable and well situated only a short walk to the city centre, breakfast was buffet style continental and good. Our room was street facing and opposite the police station and some noise could be heard duing the night however we live in a quiet rural area and are not use to sleeping in the city.The hotel car park (multi-story) was difficult to access with VERY tight corners evidenced by a few cars with sratches inculing my own. The hotel advertised free street parking this was not the case and we paid about 16 euros during our 2 night stay

Room Tip: Take extreme care when using the multi story car park and keep plenty of change with you.

Dear guest,
We thank you for taking time to tell us about your stay at l'Escale Oceania de Quimper and we are very pleased to see that you had a good experience.
Indeed, this is not really easy to park in the car park, but this is the cheaper (only 3€ per night and 6€ per 24h) and most secure way to park your car in the city, and enjoy a good walk in the city center.
We are looking forward to welcome you soon in the Escale Oceania Hotel in Quimper.
Best regards

A really nice modern (recently refurbished?) hotel a few minutes away from the Old Quimper... Room under the roof was lovely, quiet although a bit small (especially the tiny place to hang clothes!!!), however lovely bathroom... Plus the French 'petit déjeuner' was also included. A really good address, I will go back :)

Dear guests,
We would like to thank you for sharing your opinion about our hotel after your stay in Quimper.
Indeed the hotel was renovated last year and we appreciate that you noted it! The refurbishment allows our client to spend a nice stay in a modern and welcoming place.
Our breakfast is a real French “petit déjeuner”, but do you know that you could also try our French cuisine? Our chef proposes you some local food at our restaurant during night; don’t hesitate to enjoy it next time.
We are looking forward to welcome you another time in the Escale Oceania Hotel in Quimper.
Best regards

I was driving, so this hotel was very easy to find without negotiating Quimper streets. It is just across the small river from the Cathedral and the entrance to the Old Quimper part of town. Parking was right next door to the hotel entrance. The hotel was very clean, the room small, but updated and modern (plenty of outlets...not common in Europe), the BR divided into a toilet room and a separate shower (very good sized) room. The bed was definitely comfortable...not hard, like so many here! Breakfast included breads and rolls, hard boiled eggs, hot meats, cereal and good juices. Not huge but quite nice. The Staff was very friendly, and helpful. Overall, this hotel, un imposing from the outside, was terrific in every way...location, accessibility, comfort, cleanliness, amenities. Would absolutely stay here again.

Hotel is nicely located right in the city center virtually 2 steps away from the cathedral easily reachable with GPS navigator. They declare 3 stars and could easily be rated at 4, but they don’t have hotel parking (there’s one just 10m away with modest fee) and there’s no minibar in the room. Everything looks fresh and pretty cozy. Wi-Fi is free and stable. B-fast is nice with only one flaw. Egg boiling machine never had enough water to actually boil the egg! Staff is polite and their English is good enough to communicate. Room rate is very decent. The street is quiet and you may sleep with open window. Should I happen to be returning in Quimper I will gladly stay here again.
