It all started with Guy Conan, a farmer with his family. He travelled the markets of the region and quickly became known and appreciated by all, he was nicknamed “Uncle Guy”. In 1982 he decided to change his profession and bought a bar on the port of Paimpol: “l’Escale”. Uncle Guy later turned it into a creperie.
In 1991, he bought an old fashion house not far from l’Escale and transformed it into a restaurant which became “l’Islandais” before creating in 1993, 4 hotel rooms upstairs: “La Mutine”, “l’Étoile”, “La Belle Poule” and “l’Islandaise”, names given in honour of Paimpol schooners.
In 1994, Uncle Guy sold l’Escale and in 1997 bought a beautiful shipowner’s residence, a neighbour of the Icelander. He decided to turn it into a beautiful charming hotel in order to join the first 4 rooms already created. The hotel is called the “K’Loys” (“Ker Loys” means Louis’ house in Breton).
In 2001, Guy’s nephew, Jean Marc Conan, decided to join the adventure and leave the family farm to take over the Icelanders.
In 2005, Tonton Guy decides to create the hotel restaurant also called “Chez Tonton Guy”.
Jean Marc, as for him, decides, in 2009, to buy back l’Escale and in April 2012 he is given the keys of the hotel and the Bistrot. In April 2012, he was given the keys to the hotel and the Bistrot, which he decided to give up to him and take over the family business.
In July 2012, Jean Marc buys an old jewellery shop on the port and transforms it into an ice-cream parlour/tea room: “Adam”.
In December 2016, the family grows and Jean-Marc decides to buy Mrs Berthelot’s hotel (the building annexed to the hotel and the restaurant l’Islandais). An ambitious project with the aim of enlarging the kitchens of l’Islandais and to be able to create 8 additional rooms in a more contemporary style. The K’Loys hotel now has 25 rooms.
