28th July 2018 We set off at about 6pm as we decided to stay over in a dog friendly pub called the Prince of Orange in Kent, due to delays in Dover. Before we set off, we made sure we packed everything. When we booked the rooms (2) they looked okay and cheap but cheerful. We went over the Queen Elizabeth Bridge and then went down some housing estates, the area looked okay until we were down the road and saw bright blue, red and green aluminous lights outside as it was 10:45pm. So we as a family decided that it was going to be okay and it was only a place to rest so we had an hour’s drive to the ferry port. So we were greeted outside by one of the men, he was helpful and showed us to our rooms. All our faces dropped, it was bloody awful, and below my room was a disco at the bar. The beds looked dirty and there was a communal bathroom witch was not clean. But saying that I thought the staff were nice. Probably wouldn’t recommend it, but it served its purpose. 29th July 2018 We got up about 4am, to leave for 5am. The dog went out in the gated off side entrance and did their business. Got in the jam-packed car and drove 1 hour 10mins to Dover Port. Our ferry wasn’t supposed to depart until 9.25am, but we had got flexi tickets so was able to get on the ferry at 8.25am. When we got on the ferry, the crew were nice, but the down side to P&O ferries is that pets have to stay in the car. (Unless is an assistance dog or the car deck is over 25 degrees.) We had booked the club lounge, and you get complementary drinks, and they have a fabulous food menu (inc. scrambled egg with smoked salmon.) Very nice indeed. We have driven for about 7 hours today and we have settled into an accommodation called Garden and City in Lyon (France). It is really nice and cute I will make a review on it when I’m back in the UK. The dogs have been brilliant in the car today, we even met a French Miniature Schnauzer called Sammy . Will post some pictures during the holiday.
