"Poole to Guernsey fat cat."
Reviewed 13 August 2014 by Robert
Easy process of getting to the ferry port and driving onto the cat, it was a tight fit, so get used to squeezing your car into a small spot, it's the same when getting off with lots of reversing and gear changes. The ferry was nice and quick and the three hours flew by, service was good and the staff friendly. Didn't really try the food out, but it looked cheep and cheerful and good enough if you were hungry.

Both journeys were pleasant and the food was good that we purchased along with the coffee and beer and not too bad a price. The chairs were very worn and thin so not comfortable for three hour journey. As the chairs did not have much padding it made them very low and the table to eat from was therefore too high. The journey from Poole to Guernsey was good but the return journey from Guernsey was delayed due to the ferry earlier in the day being delayed due to accident in the South of England, waiting for passengers. We got to Guernsey port at 7pm and queued up, it was very hot. The latest check in time was 7.40 I believe so we were in plenty of time. However as the boat had been delayed by about 1/2 hour we had even longer to wait. A member of staff did go round to each car and explain what was happening which was good.

This is the first time that I have travelled on the Condor and was pleasantly surprised how efficiently everything was run. The boarding was easy and trouble free the staff directing traffic to the area`s required were efficient and quick with very clear signals and directions. The trip home was a little more hectic due to a lot of vintage sports cars boarding but still the staff were brilliant. My friend and I were a little confused as to which door to go through as we were on a different level than on trip out. Within seconds a member of your staff was there to direct us if I had known that I was going to be doing this review I would have taken their name to post. But saying that everyone was extremely polite and professional I only wish Airports were up to the same standards. The whole trip was a joy with good food and drink available Thank you for giving me this opportunity to put my opinion regarding my trip on the Condor and will certainly be using Directferries again in the future.

Poole is a coastal town, port and tourist destination in the traditional county of Dorset in southern England. The is famed for its large natural harbour, situated on the shores of the English Channel.
The Poole Harbour area has been inhabited for well over 2,000 years.
Poole is positioned on a very popular stretch of coastline, with the resort of Bournemouth to the east, Studland to the south and the Jurassic coast southwest. The town has grown rapidly, and Sandbanks, a small sand spit across part of the harbour mouth, is so popular that it has the fourth highest land value, by area, in the world. There are exclusive homes both on Sandbanks and the whole of the area stretching east from the Harbour to The Avenue (the eastern boundary of Poole).
Guernsey is a British crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. It is divided into 10 Parishes.
Rising sea levels transformed Guernsey into the tip of a peninsula jutting out into the emergent English Channel until about 6000 BC, when Guernsey and other promontories were cut off from continental Europe, becoming islands. Guernsey’s living history book begins with Neolithic Man and the oldest manmade structure in Europe.
The island formed part of Normandy from 933, forging a link between Britain and France that survives in Norman Law, surnames and Guernesaise, the local language. Guernsey sided with England in 1204. Castle Cornet was built to repel a French invasion and today houses some of the island’s best museums.
The 20th century also left its mark, when the islands became bulwarks in Europe’s WWII Atlantic Wall.
