Hook of Holland Harwich Ferry reviews

  • "Great alternative to other ports"

    We had a very comfortable overnight trip from Hook of Holland to Harwich, with a spacious and well appointed cabin. The journey was smooth and punctual and the price very competitive. Travelling from Switzerland to Gloucestershire we decided to avoid Calais in case there were delays and found the drive up through Germany was fast and easy, with no motorway tolls and with the added bonus of a couple of days stop on the Rhine valley. We're thinking it is a good way to visit the Netherlands instead of flying as well.

  • "A superb crossing"

    My first crossing via Harwich and Holland was nothing more than quite superb. I honestly could not complain about anything whatsoever. I took this crossing to avoid Calais, which has been my chosen way to cross for a number of years. I will do so again.

    Brilliant. Booking web site simple to follow. Number plate recognition speeds up check in which was just a couple of minutes. Comfort cabin was surprisingly good - large, well fitted out, full size shower and great beds. Breakfast quick and good. disembarkation smooth. And the return was the same. A great option to avoid the mess at Calais.
