Portsmouth St Malo Ferry reviews

  • "5th Crossing in 12 months."

    We have sailed overnight twice this last year, and made a couple of day sailings, all with Brittany Ferries. The ferries were always clean, the staff were very good and attentive, the cabins were clean and very suitable for a night's sleep, and finally the food was well cooked, and well presented ,in the main restaurant, by very professional staff. I would certainly recommend Brittany Ferries to anyone crossing to France or Spain from Poole or Portsmouth. We will certainly use them again.

  • "Prtsmouth to St Malo and back"

    My wife and me decided en-route that this was the most civilised way of travelling. After a 256 mile trip from the North West to Portsmouth we embarked and sat down to a lovely meal in the self service restaurant, top quality and very satisfying. We had elected to sleep in the public recliner chairs as we'd done this previously with no problems. I guess it's pot luck as this time we had multi snorers and other bodily noises, plus an inconsiderate bunch arrived from the bar and made a racket. On the return trip we opted a bunk bed. A splendid experience, good facilities, food and staff. Organisation of the cars on and off makes the whole thing very easy. I would recommend Brittany Ferries.
