We enjoyed two excellent recent journeys on Condor ferries to Guernsey from St Malo and return, and found staff, facilities, seating and cleanliness to our complete satisfaction. The ferries were punctual to the minute and we would have no hesitation in recommending Condor ferries to anyone contemplating this journey.

I had been warned against a ferry from St Malo to Guernsey in mid December, but decided to do it anyway. It turned out just fine, and the staff were excellent, and facilities good.

"The journey was ok, but the service was full and there isn't any luggage office."

The journey went well. However, although we arrived an hour and a half before departure in Saint Malo, the parking lots were full. As the terminal is located in the city centre, it's difficult to find a parking space. There are no lockers. So if you leave your cottage at 9.30am and your crossing is at 3.30, you have to lug about your luggages the whole day.

We regret that the placement is done by a computer without consulting the passengers about their preferences. We were attributed seats which we didn't like, whereas there were a lot of better seats available. The cabin attendant was not very cooperative when we asked her which other seats were available. Moreover, the level of English of the French speaking staff is deplorable.

St-Malo is a port city in Brittany northern France on the English Channel. Walled and built with grey granite stone, modern St-Malo traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by saints Aaron and Brendan early in the sixth century. In later centuries it became notorious as the home of a fierce breed of pirate-mariners, who were never quite under anybody's control but their own; for four years from 1590, St-Malo even declared itself to be an independent republic. The corsaires of St-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield. Jacques Cartier, who colonized Canada, lived in and sailed from St-Malo, as did the first colonists to settle the Falklands - hence the islands' Argentinian name, Las Malvinas. Now inseparably attached to the mainland, St-Malo is the most visited place in Brittany - thanks to its superb old citadelle.
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.
