Condor Ferries Reviews
Description:Ferries to the Channel Islands, ferries to France and ferries to the UK.
Newest Review: ... very efficient. The services on the ferry are reasonable, though not outstanding and the cooked food was pretty average for the price. However, a week later, I was devastated to discover that the Poole service was suddenly cancelled (maintenance problems, apparently). My only option was to take the much later service back to Weymouth - this did not arrive until after 11 pm. I knew that no ... more

I booked to travel with Condor from Weymouth to Jersey and from Jersey to Poole on the return route. I was travelling with a car, caravan and two dogs. I intentionally chose the Poole return route because the boat would arrive in time for me to book into a caravan site for the night. As I live in Gloucestershire and store the caravan at a depot in Devon, I could not possibly return home on the night the ferry arrived. The outward journey went well and arrived only slightly late. I found the booking-in and loading arrangements at Weymouth very efficient. The services on the ferry are reasonable, though not outstanding and the cooked food was pretty average for the price. .

Condor Ferries is the only choice of boat to get between Guernsey and Jersey. Islanders often use them for local sports teams to get to inter-island sports events, see the Jersey Zoo which Guernsey doesn't have or go shopping as they have more UK brands than we do. I always use it with my family to see shows in Jersey, as yet again we rarely have them in Guernsey. I use them regularly as there is no choice and usually go to Jersey every couple of months. I have been doing this for years and they have not gotten better in time. When you arrive at the Guernsey harbour to check in, the queue is usually out the door as they casually let people through ... Read the complete review

Condor Ferries takes advantage of the fact they are the only company going to the island. I presented a complaint to the email I was given and they never even answered back! I think it is lack of respect! On the website it says that the boat departs at 14h 30m and when we arrive at 14h we were told we couldn't get on boat that late. The ridiculous part of it, is that 10 minutes before, they had called us and we told where we were and the woman said "so you will be on time!" And then they don't let us go, knowing that there are no boats until 5am!! We didn't have car or bikes and not big luggage, just the two of us. It was mean. She actually told us there was ...

I would never use Condor Ferries again, after they cancelled the Fast Ferry we were forced to use the slow one and even though we paid for comfy seats on the way to Jersey they couldnt offer us anything on the slow ferry other than a cabin which we ended up paying £80 extra for!!! even though my wife was pregnant they wouldnt help, they said they other than a cabin she could only sit in the cafe if there was space.Ferry was late with no announcements as to what was going on, had to go and ask multiple times.Cabin was dirty, the shower wasnt useable.Would not recommend and would not use again, next time we're flying.

Having read a few other reviews I thought I'd give my thoughts. My first thought is that boats aren't for everyone!!! If you're a little queezy on the Dover to Calais crossing or Isle of Wight ferries then boats aren't for you!! Or try the boots travel tablets I've mentioned in previous review! We have travelled with Condor for over 6 years, in my opinion they have been the cheapest crossing from Portsmouth/Weymouth to Cherbourg/St Malo I've found. It is not delux style travelling because they're a small company and they are cheap. Cost ------ The best way to do this is book in advance, they save you the best prices if you ring ...
