“Good location, friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Yes, it needs some renovation in my opinion but then it is still kept spotlessly clean and comfortable so I'd rather the latter. There is a nice welcome from the staff.

I would say our room was quite small really but then we only slept in it so no real problems there. The Wi-Fi seemed slow.

All in all, it seems a decent choice in a great location. Good breakfast.

Room Tip: Those opening onto the inner courtyard will be quiet.

OK hotel in a good location. Service was very average and the decor is very outdated. A suite sounded nice, but is basically a triple in two small rooms. Could be nicer with a renovation, but as is, it is not great value and is clearly living off its reputation.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Situated a few blocks from the old town this is a fine choice for visiting Quimper. The room are recently renovated and ours, a superior double was spacious, quiet and comfortable. There are shutters to ensure darkness and good quality wall mounted shower gels and soaps. The bathroom was large with a separate toilet and shower room. The breakfast comes in at €12 but included an excellent selection of croissants, bread, cheese, cold meats, cereals, etc. On good days, can be enjoyed in the quiet courtyard. If the price is too high, there is coffee, tea making equipment in the room and cafes are a short walk but we used the generous quantity to miss lunch before a meal later on. Very pleasant staff. Overall excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking courtyard.

We stayed at the Gradlon for 3 nights. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. The lobby level is simple, yet pleasant. We had a twin room which was quite small but we managed it. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was modern, a very good size with a large walk in shower that was great. There is no lift but the staff brought the luggage upstairs. The breakfast is very simple but adequate. The hotel is in a great location. We walked to everything. The latter made it an excellent choice. The staff recommended restaurants for dinner and made the reservations. All the meals were very good. We left thinking it was far from luxury but good for the price and the excellent location. The staff and the obvious care taken with the hotel made it a pleasant stay.

Just at the edge of the walled old city, the Hotel Gradlon has a welcoming feel. There is a cheerful central courtyard with fragrant rose bushes. The traditional decor looks comfortable. Any hotel that serves a hot breakfast from 7 am to noon is clearly thinking about the guests' comfort.

We paid the substantial extra cost to upgrade from the booking.com special rate on a tiny room to the spacious next size up with brass bed, desk, two easy chairs, etc., and a reasonable amount of storage space. The bathroom is roomy with ample counter space and separate w.c.

But there the quirks start. Liquid soap, no bars. Bathtub with no non-skid and only a handheld shower at waist level; if you want it higher, hold it there. The heater is behind the curtains, and there are no "blackout" curtains to keep the room dark after daybreak.

So - good location and hospitality in a property that could use some improvement. Overall, not a bad place to stay.

Our annual trip to Wine Fair in Quimper usually includes a night in a small french hotel in the area, normally v basic. As we are normally out all day its usually just a bed to crash in saturday night so we are not too fussy. However this hotel did stand out. The bathroom was well above standard in size and quality.Beds were v comfortable and the linen was good quality The welcome was very warm and when my tourist french started to struggle he changed to English.
We were offered three choices of restaurant from 1*M to Creperie but decided on JArdin d'Lete.Also highly recommended
He reserved our table and the same welcome was afforded at the restaurant when we arrived.
The parking was garaged for 10eur charge , good job as we had a van load of wine.
Breakfast was more than adequately french,fresh bread and pastries. The decor may not suit all but I have had worse attention/service in some 4/5 star establishments.

We stayed for three nights in this hotel. We had a large room and a large bathroom, actually it was a room for disabled people, although the room we had booked was a superior room. The beds were very comfortable but the decoration of the room seemed dated and did not have the charm that you can see on pictures of this hotel. The bathroom was also quite old. Considering that the price of this hotel was quite high, we would expect a bit more. The location of the hotel is good, it is close to the old city. The staff and the owners were very nice and helpful with information about the town.
