This was our second time travelling with stenaline from Harwich to Hoek v Holland and we find it good value for money, comfortable and a pleasant experience both times we have been ferried across. So from us ( a family of 6 ) we can honestly say that we would recommend this crossing to everyone.

Both sailings were fabulous. Staff were lovely so pleased to see guest services staff come out to help an elderly lady use the cash machine and then spend time chatting rather than being too busy to care. So rare in this day and age but so lovely to know that your company clearly values and encourages this level of care. Day trip- excellent,boarded in a timely manner and left on time recommendation...why do we have to pay for the cinema when its a disc in a big player seems a big wrong when you have already paid to travel and if I have kids for 6 hours I would not be able to afford yet it would be a wonderful distraction Night time sailing cant fault in any way -arrived early and yet were able to board cabin excellent much better than expectations smooth departure in the UK

We used to travel Hull - Rotterdam overnight, however we have now discovered a much pleasurable way to travel on the day trips across at half the cost. We will continue to travel this way

Located in the English county of Essex, the town and port of Harwich lies on the North Sea coast, on the estuaries of the River Stour and River Orwell. Its proximity to the sea has resulted in the town having a well established, long history with both the military and merchant navy. In 1652 the town became a naval base and was heavily fortified with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery and Bath Side Battery. Containing many historic buildings, Harwich's old town has been declared a conservation area.
Harwich has also been home to some notable residents including Christopher Jones, the master and part owner of the Mayflower, the diarist Samuel Pepys was an MP for the town and Christopher Newport who founded Jamestown, Virginia, came from Harwich.

Located in the west of The Netherlands, the Hook of Holland is a town that lies at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg ship canal that flows to the North Sea. The town's name refers to its geographical location in the south western "corner" of Holland. The town is of great historical significance. Due to its location, it was used by the Germans for strategies involving the harbour. However, it's also a gorgeous place to visit for beach lovers. There is stretch of sand that runs from the Hook to Scheveningen, which is about eighteen kilometers away. It is a great place to spend a few days soaking up the sun and sea. But be warned as one section of the beach has been chosen to be used by naturists, so perhaps it's not for the fainthearted. Along this stretch of sand, you'll also find a number of rolling dunes which are just waiting to be explored. Most of this area has designated cycle routes, so it's great if you've decided to take your bike along.
The ferry terminal in the town is operated by Stena Line who operate a ferry service to Harwich in Essex. The terminal facilities include a convenience store and a café / bar. All ferries have a shop, currency exchange services, an information desk, video lounge and casino onboard.
