  • "Very relaxed trip"    
    This trip was very relaxed and enjoyable- like the previous times I've crossed the channel by train    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Sharne hollis review "    
    Excellent value for money as middle of london to middle of Paris. No travelling into the centre of each needed . A little more information when dis barking from train regards the taxi service would be nice as I'm sure I was hassled and overcharged but that was not a euro rail problem    Value for money  Convenience
  • "quick and convenient"    
    quick, easy and convenient    Convenience
  • "All good"    
    excellent trip    Value for money  Convenience
  • "End of a Europe holiday"    
    We've travelled Premium on the Eurostar a number of times and enjoy the extra level of service. This service remained good on this trip but the train we had was old and tatty.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Simple."    
    I always find it so simple to catch the Eurostar. Once you get through immigration which probably needs to be bigger. The trip seems to take no time at all.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Eurostar"    
    Excellent Eurostar trip from Paris to London. Gare du Nord waiting area doesn't have enough seating. London end has ample seating but Paris is pretty poor considering amount of time you need to check in before departure    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Better than flying"    
    The convenience of being able to take the train to make the journey from London to Paris was fantastic. It actually saved us time and money in that we didn't have get out to an airport, pay a taxi etc. we left from the centre of London and arrived in the centre of Paris. Fantastic experience.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fast train to Paris"    
    Check-in was simple, the journey itself was stress-free - it's just unfortunate that the departure time was delayed for more than two hours as it made sitting around waiting in the reception area tiresome. Other than that, this is a great service that operates with a huge number of departure/arrival times to accommodate everyone.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "A Great Way to Travel"    
    The process through immigration and customs was very efficient. However, certain articles of luggage which are permissable to be taken on board an aircraft hold are not on board Eurostar. This is due to the fact that passenger luggage is stored in racks at the end of each carriage. That said, the journey was smooth as silk and it seemed in no time at all we were across the channel. Our carriage appeared a little tired and a refurbishment would have enhanced our experience further. Overall, as a comparison with air travel over train, Eurostar is the way to go.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Travel in Comfort"    
    Loved traveling with Eurostar - the coaches are clean and comfortable and always on time.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Eurostar very convenient"    
    I love the convenience of the Eurostar, but it's a pity the seats are so uncomfortable. They are permanently slanted back - not good for your posture.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Paris to London"    
    The train was comfortable- enough storage for bags.On arrival in London lots of cabs to get you to your hotel.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Centre to Centre"    
    From the centre of London to the centre of Paris in two hours is great. Train is quiet and comfortable and there was no long queue for taxis at Gare du Nord! Wi-Fi at St Pancras is very patchy.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable trip"    
    2nd class good. Quite adequate.    Value for money  Convenience
