This is a really difficult hotel to rate, thanks to France's unusual way of ranking its hotels. Classed as a 4 star, in most other countries I've visited it would be a 3-star. That's simply because it lacks most of the things you'd expect from a 4-star hotel - a quality restaurant, a classy bar or two and so on.
It the Kregenn had been a 3-star, I would've rated it much better. But judging it against 4-star hotels elsewhere in the world, I can only give it a 3 rating on this site.
That's not to say I didn't enjoy my stay. The hotel has excellent, friendly staff who know how to deliver quality customer service. It's just a minute or two from the old city walls and the medieval heart of old Quimper, so very well located (although in a fairly drab side street). It has good parking, which you have to pay for, and is just around the corner from a great Breton bar (the Ceili) and a fine restaurant (the Erwan).
The hotel has a modern look and feel, our room was a good size with a bathroom that looked very new. Decoration and furnishings were OK. My partner and I slept well at night, this being a pretty quiet area, and cleaning could not be faulted.
Breakfast was a basic continental type, with a few paid for extras. At 13 euros, it was a bit steep.
Quimper itself in June was pretty quiet, especially on Sunday and Monday when you could hear a pin drop and many places were closed. Otherwise, it's a compact and pretty place and well worth a visit for a couple of days.
