  • "comments reference communication"

    Due to weather conditions there was some disruption to our return trip to Poole. Alternative arrangements were made but not before a multitude of very confusing text messages. Lack of communication was not a problem but conflicting information most certainly was ! For example: We were already on Brittania Ferries from Cherbourg bound for Portsmouth - when a text was received with the information that ferry crossings were cancelled from St Malo and that it was necessary to travel to Cherbourg ! It was with the hotel receptionists' help - who checked Condor Ferry timetable on the internet the day before our departure - that we arrived at the check in port in St Malo to be advised that a coach would be taking us to Cherbourg. No information was forwarded to advice this !

  • "Excellence in action"

    During our stay in France, my wife had an accident which resulted in her having to use crutches to move anywhere. I was very concerned about how we would cope with the journey home. However I need not have been, the Condor Ferries staff were absolutely marvellous, showing compassion and care of the highest order and having arrangements in place to cater for such circumstances. I wish to thank them all.

  • "Feedback on Poole to St Malo Ferry"

    Crossings both ways were smooth and comfortable. The ships were clean and tidy and the crew efficient and informative.On our outward journey for some reason we were not allocated seats but after some confusion this was sorted out. Loading and unloading was organised efficiently, however we were unaware that we had to transfer to another ferry in the Channel Islands on each crossing. Apart from that it was all fine.

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).
