Had 2 bookings but one car & passenger was unable to come so the other 2 passengers were quickly changed to our car but for some unknown reason the cabin was not available still.Value for money but no frills,cabin was clean but noisey & as it is a French company they should be ashamed of the stuff they call coffee. On our return journey we used the free reclining seats.Toilets were not too clean on such a short journey either.

Whe thought it was a great service and the only thing we found very irritating is that it did not seen to matter when you turned up at the dock as to when you were loaded. On the way out we probably did get loaded in about the order we arrived but on the return that certainly was not the case. Most of the people who arrived after us were loaded before us. I can understand that there may be reasons for loading different sizes/types of vehicles in blocks but cars that arrived an hour after us (we were in a car) were loaded ahead of us.

We think that Newhaven to Dieppe is possibly the nicest way to travel to France, but there are a few points that could be improved upon. The port facilities & efficiency of the transit arrangements at Dieppe are very good. Disembarking at Newhaven & clearing passport control however always seems to take forever. & the vegetarian / vegan options in the cafe again weren't very exciting.

It does what it says what it will do - take you across the Channel. Clean(ish) floors - I only mention this as I had to sleep on one on the night return leg (no cabins available). Staff polite and efficient, minimal shopping allowed, due to timing of ferry. Wish the tannoy didn't go on all the journey, though - no avoiding the seeming running commentary when one w-a-n-t-s t-o s-l-e-e-p... Cheap and cheerful. Convenient for me, as it is near my home town.

Newhaven used to be named Meeching until the 16th Century when a great storm diverted the course of the Sussex Ouse so forming a NewHaven.
Wealden oak, wine and spirits from the continent and slab ice from the Baltic were shipped through the port. The town flourished with shipbuilding yards and breweries. The railway reached Newhaven in the 1840s and the first ferry service was established soon after, providing the shortest land- sea route between London and Paris. Both the ferry service and the Dieppe Raid have forged strong links between Newhaven and Dieppe. Each year the Mayor of Dieppe and entourage are the guests of Newhaven for a commemorative service to the 1,000 Canadian and Allied servicemen who embarked from Newhaven and died on the beaches of Dieppe. Their memory is preserved by an impressive granite plinth in a garden of remembrance by the harbour.
Crowded between high cliff headlands, Dieppe is an enjoyably small-scale port in the Seine-Maritime département of Haute-Normandie, France. During the nineteenth century, Parisians came here by train to take the sea air, promenading along the front. First recorded as a small fishing settlement in 1030, it was an important prize fought over during the Hundred Years' War. Dieppe housed the most advanced French school of cartography in the 16th century, and was the premiere port of the kingdom in the 17th century. On July 23, 1632 300 colonists headed for New France departed. At the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Dieppe lost 3000 of its citizens, who fled abroad. It was an important target in wartime; the town was largely destroyed by Anglo-Dutch naval bombardment in 1694 and rebuilt after 1696. On August 19, 1942, during the WWII, it was the site of the Dieppe Raid, a bloody landing by Allied soldiers, mainly Canadian.
