  • "Review 220926"

    Staff really friendly and helpful, both generally and in the shop. Self service restaurant could improve. No list of menu or prices before reaching the counter, food served was almost cold. It was quite cold once one had waited at the till. Microwave to warm it up again had no instructions for those who were unfamiliar with it.

  • "Easy to book, excellent value, good choice of sailings"

    What was there not to like, simple to book, a fraction of the cost of the tunnel, swift on and off, and relaxing with the option for food and drink...
