Poole Guernsey Ferry reviews

  • "Our first holiday to Guernsey"

    Had two great crossings to and from Guernsey. The Condor Liberation was prompt, comfortable and smart. The car loading staff were very pleasant and helpful. On the return crossing from Guernsey on 16th July, the meal serving bar could have done with one more member of staff to serve drinks. (The person on the till also had to serve drinks and seemed a little stressed). Overall we were very happy with all the facilities and would definitely use this crossing again.

  • "Journey between Poole and guernsey "

    Very impressed with overall experience we booked onto club class which was lovely with experienced friendly waiting staff the only point I would raise is because they are the most expensive they should be at the front of the ship with panaoramic views much better location in the ship On the way back the ship was delayed by about 40 mins because lift was out of order that meant we missed our connecting train link back to London because we had bought advanced first class tickets we could only go on that train so we had to pay out £145 for new tickets on later train Also because if lift failure getting off ship in Poole was so slow as all foot passengers could only exit out one door and elderly handicapped people were using that exit and had to take time going down the stairs

  • "easy to book"

    I used Direct Ferries in my planning for our trip to Guernsey. As a single mum with two boys (one a teenager!!) the less hassle, the easier life is, especially when the logistics of 400+ car miles to get to the Ferry had to be negotiated first. I booked on line and was quickly confirmed and updated. Due to car issues, I had to change cars twice before our travel. Each update was quick and easy to do and was clearly processed when we checked in. On board the ship was clean and comfortable. The hoover staff used to clean up a passengers' dodgy tummy didn't help, as it seemed t share the odour round the whole area. The staff noticeably remained unflustered and cheery throughout. On or return we were sat near one of the exclusive seating lounges- controlled by an entry pad. Several customers forgot the code. My boys had remembered it from watching others and happily shared it with the customers. Some received this well, others seemed a bit annoyed. I guess if paying extra you'd expect that exclusivity. It added to my boys' pleasure, but perhaps an entry card or something more discreet would work better.? The food we chose was well presented and well cooked, with options for all. I did later decide Id like another green tea and tried to purchase the unlimited refill for an extra pound (as the ad. stated) I learned however that you cant do that after a purchase. That seems a bit unfair to me and a bit misleading - so beware - if you think you'd like it, buy it at the time....unless of course the Ferry change their policy. Both journeys went well, there was a longer delay on etruning to Poole(it seemed they took 4 lanes of traffic down to one check point).

  • "It wasnt choppy! "

    Havent taken the ferry for 30 years and the ships have changed! Really enjoyed both journeys which were on time or early. Clean comfortable seating in Horizon. Didnt eat, but food looked good and staff were friendly and professional. Now going by boat to Guernsey, it was worth the extra time, beautiful sea and island views. Already booking next year for family.

Poole Guide

The English town of Pool lies on the English Channel coast in the south of England, in the county of Dorset. The town is around 30 km to the east of Dorchester and 180 km to the south west of London and is located on the eastern shores of Poole Harbour. The busy port, with many shipping movements each day, is also one of the world's largest natural harbours and is full of wildlife, much of which is visible in the marshes and mudflats and on Brownsea island inside the harbour. There is also a pontoon ferry crossing the harbour mouth back and forward all day, allowing easy access to the Purbecks.

The are good facilities inside the ferry terminal at the harbour including a cafe, a bureau de change and left luggage lockers. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Cherbourg in France with a crossing time of roughly 4 hours and 15 minutes. During the summer months, usually between May and September, there is also a fast ferry service to Cherbourg with a crossing time of just over 2 hours. In the summer there are additional services that operate to St Malo in France (4 hours and 30 minutes) and two daily crossings to St Peter Port in Guernsey (2 hours and 30 minutes) and St Helier in Jersey (3 hours).


Guernsey Guide

The island of Guernsey lies in the English Channel and is located around 50 km to the west of the French Normandy coast. Guernsey is one of the Channel Islands and is a possession of the British Crown. Perhaps the island's biggest draw for visitors is its coast and beaches, with over 27 different bays to explore and enjoy. Some are more popular than others and the island's beautiful south coast is characterised by stunning cliffs and are best explored on foot.

The island's port is located in St Peter Port is one of the prettiest in Europe and provides a lovely backdrop when arriving at the island by sea. Ferries arriving in Guernsey depart from a number of ports on the English south coast with crossing times from 3 hours. Ferries from Portsmouth operate all year round and in all weathers whilst ferries to St Malo in France take a little more than 2 hours. Additional ferry services are put on during the busy summer months from the Normandy coast. As a foot passenger, or if travelling with your car, motorcycle or bicycle, the ferry will deliver you straight into the heart of the island's capital.
