Portsmouth St Malo Ferry reviews

  • "A great way to travel. "

    We splashed out and booked Commodore class which is well worth the extra. Arriving at St. Malo instead of Calais cuts out a lot of driving as we were headed south to Indres. The food on board was very good and the staff really helpful.

    Going from Portsmouth to St Malo on a Triumph Tiger Sport. Very impressed with the way they handled tethering the bike for the journey. We had a cabin and were impressed with cleanliness and even had TV. Food on board and evening entertainment made for a very pleasant journey. Return journey was just as pleasant sun bathed on the deck only one issue homeward bound back to work.

  • "First but not last"

    Never fancied the long crossing to France and always drove to Dover, 250 mile return, but probably never again. We were going to a celebration in St Malo so it made sense to go direct ( Portsmouth) to St Malo and as foot passengers. Can get to ferry terminal by bus and easy check in for the crossing. We were on board before most of the cars and soon located our cabin. Small but adequate and an excellent shower. Interesting departure from Portsmouth and once past the Isle of Wight time to turn in. Very surprised how easy it was to get a nights comfortable sleep and next event was the wake you up music. Just as easy departing the ship, or is it a boat and in St Malo in minutes. The staff were very good and the boat very clean. I will certainly use this route again particularly to visit the stunning beach and walled city of St Malo.
