    this is the first time we have used your service. Boarding very good, cabin adequate, facilities on board excellent. Thoroughly recommend it. In fact have already booked another trip across in December.

  • "Fantastic crossings"

    First time towing a large trailer, so we were a little apprehensive. From the moment we were checked in to arrival, we were looked after brilliantly. Helpful staff, clean environment- I'd definitely use Brittany ferries again

    Excellent food and service but would be good if wifi range was extended to reserved seating areas

  • "great start of the holiday"

    Coming from Woking, Surrey, Portsmouth is only an hour away so a very short drive to the start of the holidays. We booked fairly late so only 2-person cabins were available but this is fine when travelling with 2 young children, each parent can take 1 child. We went to dinner at the a la carte restaurant (we stood in line straight after getting on board, don't wait until you've sailed as it will be full), which had a great selection of buffet style entrees and desserts and really nice mains for such large numbers. The waiting staff was a bit impatient, but that just got us in the right mood for France:). Seated next to the piano bar, we were also treated to a nice concerto for part of the dinner and the kids got a nice surprise-box afterwards. The cabins were comfortable and we were awoken by Breton harp-music an hour before arrival to make sure we were back in our car on time. Take some breakfast along as this is hard to come by in the morning, unless you rise really early before the harps. Once off the ship, you drive easily from the harbour to your destination, in our case a 2 hour drive to southern Brittany. A great relaxing start to our holiday.

St Malo Guide

Although St. Malo may not be one of the biggest cities in the Brittany area of France, it is close to Mont Saint Michel and is a really good base for visitors to explore the city and its surrounding area. There are a number of popular attractions in the city with the most historic located along the cobblestone alleys around the walled city. The city's ramparts provide a lovely view of the city and immediate surrounding area and the Cathedrale St. Vincent, located on the Place Jean de Chatillon is the city's centrepiece attraction. Also popular in the city are the Fort National, the Chateau de St. Malo, the amazing Grand Aquarium and the city's lovely sandy beaches.

The city is the final destination for the daily Condor Ferry, which starts in Weymouth, England, stopping off at both Guernsey and Jersey along the way.
