We travelled on a day which was not too busy. We did not have to queue very long, though we got there over an hour before. It’s always pot luck where you end up on the ship. Unfortunately we ended up on the top deck...More

Tired, run-down and dirty! The Departure Lounge (Lounge???? - Waiting Area!!) is awful. The Loos at 8am are disgraceful and, in my opinion, are a health hazard! There seems to be a complete lack of any care and attention. I cannot help but wonder what...More

I can only assume that the lack of any reasonable type of facilities here is due to the limited number of ferries that use the port. A really depressing terminal and certainly not a good advert for the UK. Although they do have toilets they...More

Staff in Newhaven are much better than in Dieppe' but the lounge is very old and sometimes you have to wait a long time. My wifi didn't work but apparently it does but is slow. Foot passengers now travel with dogs but there are six...More

Compared with other Channel ports, Newhaven is out of date with few facilitie. No refreshment areas for example; no information about how late the ferry would be. Bad.

This is a terrible port to depart from, it belongs in the run down nationalised industry scenario of the seventies.
