  • "Relaxing way to do the crossword "

    I would always choose this way of crossing if the price makes it doable. It’s relaxing, gives us basically another day in England and gives us an early start and an earlier time to reach home in Germany. The staff are always friendly, the cabins clean snd the water hot - everything we need!

  • "Relaxing"

    Coming from the Netherlands I prefer going with Stena Line from Hook of Holland to England above using the shorter sea crossing from Calais. This is more relaxing, because less driving time.

  • "Smooth and easy booking and crossing"

    Really simple to book, although not offered a dog kennel on Direct Ferries booking page. Thankfully checked before travel and was able to add with Stenaline themselves. Check in process was straight forward. Some facilities were not available on the crossing due to staff shortages but I went straight to my cabin anyway. Comfortable cabin and able to check on dog via the TV channel. The wake up call is a nice touch but a little early if you do not intend to use the restaurant.

  • "Very good"

    We arrived at the Hook after travelling from the south of France, via Lille. It was very convenient. Staff at the Hook were helpful and efficient, especially the lady at the ticket desk who helped me disentangle the complications of PCR test. Staff on board were efficient and helpful. The ship is super clean and runs like clockwork, apart from the cabin door key which I had to keep on. getting recharged. We've decided that in future we will travel by this route, as well as try it as foot passengers. Although our dog could have had a kennel, we decided to leave her with our cat in the car, especially as wearing a muzzle for the first time might have been too overwhelming after such a long journey and being left alone all night. All in all, a good experience. Thank you.

    Just returned from a few days visiting our daughter in Holland Took the Stena Line ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland and returned Boarding was no problem at all and the facilities on board were fantastic. We booked a room which had an outside view and the 8 hr journey went by really quick Slight delay when entering Netherlands Border control but only because of the heighten Covid checks If you are looking for a relaxing trip to Holland this is the best way

  • "experience - Hook of Holland -Harwich and back. "

    Hello. In total, trip, in both ways, was great, but - there are a few recommendations. 1. Good idea could be sms, or Email - for fast PCR test places, with work times, near HoH port. we drove from Denmark, and something vent wrong with system, and we couldn't get answers in out emails. so it was really stressful moment, but stena line customer service in port help us with address, so we also visited Rotterdam =) and one off test centers. 2. Easier overview, what papers need to be filled up, for trip NL-UK and UK-NL, maybe PDF with chance to download it, print and you are ready to go. 3. on the way back: we left ship 08:03, from port we get out 09:40. we could see, there was 2 new persons, what get training or we can call it teaching, there was a lot of people, who missed business meetings and get very stressed. Maybe one more window, or 2 windows, could help, to get flow faster, there was several persons, who helped with car flow in rows, so they could still send enough cars to persons, who learning, and enaugh to the other control point. Utherwise it was great. we definitely will use it again. P.s. We still hope, that i future there will be (once promist) again ship from DK (or Germany) to UK, it would be MUCH MUCH easier. otherwise we need to drive more than 7 hours without stops, so in the end it is abou 8:30 - 9:00 hours.
