"easiest access Guernsey"
Reviewed 16 September 2014 by Anonymous
Enjoyable, hassle free trip St Malo Guernsey and back on fast ship. Best experience was the helpfullness of the crew who went out of their way to help my wife on crutches and extended an overwelming level of service to help her about the ship. Made the trip feel as if we were on the HMS Brittania. Thank you and well done.

"Don't turn up early."

The two biggest advantages of travelling by Condor Ferries are that one doesn't have to fly and you can take your car. The biggest disadvantages are that ferry ports are not the friendliest of places and are extremely bleak. We decided to stay overnight in Portland and get to the terminal in plenty of time to catch the 13:30 from Weymouth to Jersey but we arrived too early so had to park outside. We went into the terminal to the cafe which reminded me of a 1960's railway station cafe - very basic and very little choice. There were no shops to buy books, papers or other items to help while away the time. Although the facilities in Jersey were a great deal better, I would suggest it is better not to arrive early. From when the gates opened until getting on the ferry was all very painless. The whole process was very efficient. Although we didn't expect to be piped aboard, it would have been nice it there had been a crew member available to at least point us towards where we were to sit - we had booked into "Club" so had numbered seats. The seats were very comfortable, and everything we wanted was brought to us. Service was not particularly fast but, given the ship was full, it was perfectly acceptable. The crossing was a bit bumpy but probably no more so than if we had flown and, of course one can always go outside for a breath of air (although we chose not to). Disembarking was just as efficient and we were quite quickly off with good directions both sides as to how to get away from the port. In summary, ferry terminals need to take a leaf out of the airport terminals' book and provide for passengers who turn up early with nothing to do and with money to spend!

"good organisation/a bit expensive on board"

Water/coffees etc...are expensive..I think when the sea is bad it should be noticed to everyone so that when every kid needs to throw up we know where to find the vomiting bag (behind some seats) - otherwise the organisation is good and people are friendly so I could do it again
