Harwich Hook of Holland Ferry reviews

  • "recent trip to germany"

    had a great trip on both brittanica ferries easy to board ,well organised and great quality cabins. breakfast was great with lots of choice but the evening meal we had from the buffet on the way home wasn't great and very expensive at over 30 euros. all in all a good experience but I think the hull to Rotterdam/Zeebrugge ferries are still better. main reason I chose stena was the price.

  • "A mixed experience"

    The good news is that the crossing was smooth and uneventful. We arrived on time. The bad news is that we were refused service in the restaurant because we did not want to order a main course. It was, of course, already nearly midnight, and one might think that the restaurant would be used to serving something light and easily digestible at this time, but we were expected to want to eat a full dinner. I can't see the point of offering this, and since the restaurant was half empty, presumably others felt the same.

  • "Smooth booking "

    , we sailed on the Stena Line and booked a cabin on the way home all went smoothly. The only thing I would like to comment on is the amount of time it took 2 get a meal. We started queuing at 5:15 and finally got our meal at 6:20 which wasn't long before the boat docked.

  • "Easy on, not so easy off"

    It is year's since I used the Harwich to Hook of Holland ferry and really enjoyed my recent experience there and back on the Stena Britannica. We had a night crossing on the way over and a day time crossing on the way back and on both legs we booked a cabin, which I'd highly recommend. Not that the public areas aren't comfortable and keen but if you've a long drive at either end of your journey they're so comfy you can get a good rest. My one serious complaint is that on the return daytime journey we had a long wait to get a) to the car decks b) to leave the boat. I'd have liked more information about why that was.

Harwich Guide

Located in the English county of Essex, the town and port of Harwich lies on the North Sea coast, on the estuaries of the River Stour and River Orwell. Operated by Stena Line, Harwich ferry port to Holland is the most popular Harwich route, arriving in the Hook of Holland.

Harwich’s port facilities include waiting lounges, shops, a bureau de change, cafes and restaurants. There are also local water taxi and ferry services from Harwich to Shotley and Felixstowe. The Port of Harwich also accommodates cruise ships that continue on to destinations in the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea and beyond.

Its proximity to the sea has resulted in the town having a well-established, long history with both the military and merchant navy. In 1652, the town became a naval base and was heavily fortified with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery and Bath Side Battery. Containing many historic buildings, Harwich's old town has been declared a conservation area.

Hook of Holland Guide

The Hook of Holland is a port town located in the west of The Netherlands and lies at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg Ship Canal flowing to the North Sea. Run by Stena Line, most ferries arrive from Harwich in England, in approximately seven hours.

The Hook of Holland ferry terminal facilities include a convenience store, a cafe and bar, while all Stena Line ferries have shops, currency exchange services, an information desk, well-equipped lounge and casino on-board for your entertainment.

The town itself, which derives its name from its geographical location in the south western corner of Holland, is of historical significance. Its strategic location meant it was used by the Germans in World War II, but, aside from this, it’s a beautiful town to visit in summer, with one sandy beach stretching from the town to Scheveningen, almost 18 km away.
