Best value, nice ships...and offloading cars before pedestrians was genius

We used MyFerryLink to come home because it was easily the best value compared with P&O and DFDS even factoring on the cost of driving to Sussex from Dover. (Though had we known about the roadworks on the M25 and M27 we might have opted for Newhaven - but that's not relevant to this review). We also like the fact that the company is the former SeaFrance - so have the best, most comfortable ships. But these are looking in need of a little TLC with unfinished renovations, which is why we didn't give 5 stars.
But best of all was offloading cars first, which keeps pedestrians safer and massively reduces the wait for drivers. Finally common sense rules. Well done.


The 14 month refund

We splashed out on an expensive cream chenille suite with M&S only to discover that ink on their stitched-in care labels had permanently marked the fabric and that it was not really suitable for sitting on wearing anything other than clothes of the same colour. This clearly did not seem to be fit for purpose and had a built-in manufacturing fault. However it took 7 months to get any reply at all to our complaint (letters, emails phone calls - nothing) and only then by writing to the Chairman, but no liability was accepted. We ultimately had to involve the Furniture Ombudsman who was also given the run around by Marks.
Only when they had found in our favour did we get an appropriate response...some 14 months after the initial purchase. [We were initially offered replacement cushions - but they discovered that they had, for some reason, discontinued that particular fabric!]
Thereafter the customer services person we dealt with was exemplary and we cannot praise her highly enough. If only that had been their initial response. Deeply disappointed in a company that has previously been a by-word for customer service and quality products.
It hardly reflects their commitment to: 'doing the right thing by our customers' does it?

Fast, efficient, helpful, and value for money

We needed a replacement toilet for our boat and were holed up in France enjoying the 2012 summer. Rang for advice and ordered Jabsco compact toilet on-line (at their suggestion to ensure delivery address was accurate) at 1759 on Saturday 9 June. It arrived in Brittany, extremely well-packaged only 4 working days later on Thursday13th.

Excellent product and very good service.
