Portsmouth St Malo Ferry reviews

  • "overnight Portsmouth - St Malo and return"

    V.good, smooth crossing. Found the on board instructions referenc e cabin directions a bit confusing however lots of helpful staff. Unable to book rwo-birth cabin without bunks this we found tricky for one 79 and one 75 year old, but survived the top bunk! Comfortable. Excellent meal in restuarant - booked out on return trip so we tried self service- also excellent and a lot cheaper. Embarking and disembarking totally controlled and excellent with no delays.

  • "enjoyable trip"

    Brittany Ferries overnight trip from Portsmouth to St Malo is a very easy way to travel. We never felt rushed, the staff were polite, friendly and helpful, we had time for a great self service meal and a film in the cinema, before getting a good nights sleep in the cosy but comfy cabin. We left feeling refreshed and fit for the 8 hour drive ahead.

  • "Excellent."

    A most enjoyable trip. Loaded early, found cabin then a superb dinner in the restaurant - well worth the money. A restful night, quick cup of coffee and off the ship for the long drive south. Could not have worked better.
