Portsmouth Guernsey Ferry reviews

  • "Lack of communication "

    The ferry is always great but directferries communication is not great. We found at after enquiries into why we were not docking in Guernsey that the route had been changed but you had not notified us. This was disappointing!

  • "To Sark and Back"

    We love travelling with Condor on the Commodore Clipper. It is a comfortable, gentle start and end to the holiday in Sark. We have been doing this for many years, and would not wish to change. A reclining seat to Guernsey, and a cabin for the return journey, add to the comfort. The food is good, and the service (especially from the Purser) is excellent. There is just one thing that causes us anxiety - that is, will we get to Guernsey in time to catch the 5pm boat to Sark? Usually we do, though on 2 occasions we have had to find accommodation in Guernsey for the night, as we have missed the Sark boat. Apart from the hassle, it adds expense to the holiday. On several occasions it has been a close thing. Our son and family has has the same problem. Although everyone has done their best to help it would be ideal if either the Commodore Clipper could get to Guernsey a bit sooner, or Sark Shipping leave a bit later - then the inevitable delays that occur from time to time would not be so crucial.
