Isle Of Wight reviews

  • "Excellent service but too expensive."

    The service is excellent but the costs is too high. I realised it was around 20% of my whole spend. They need to lower the price in my opinion. The stay on the Isle of Wight was Brilliant.

  • "Lying ton to IOW Ocober 2016"

    Good website. Emailed about parking and got a quick helpful response. Parking facilities at the port were good Signposting in car park could be improved. Could not pay by credit card at machine and notice directing you to office to make payment but poor signage with directions to said office. Ferries were punctual and clean with cheerful helpful staff both ways . Would be happy to use again and recommend.

  • "Great experience"

    This ferry trip was very relaxed, easy and enjoyable. Our three young children loved it. Good coffee and sitting area at the departure lounge and onboard. Great views, comfy seats and helpful information about places on the Isle of Wight. We were early getting to the ferry and offered an earlier return trip which was great service.
