  • "Family trip"    
    Very smooth and comfortable. Delayed in transit at Calais due to malfunction of doors in no 1  
  • "Room for improvement"    
    The trip met my expectations but was marred GT a faulty tray table which was jammed halfway making it useless and inconvenient. The baggage storage area was overloaded and staff appeared not to care or advise of an adittional area at the front of the carriage. This became particularly evident when a wheel chair user could not gain access.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great service"    
    We arrived at Paris Nord only to realise I had picked up the wrong passport ..our son and his girlfriend went racing back to Paris to retrieve the right one but obviously we were going to miss our train ...I spoke to a very lovely young man I wish I knew his name who sorted everything out for us and we had a very pleasant trip on the very next train :)..the meals and service were wonderful I wish I had time to take another trip ..and on our next visit will certainly try to take the train rather than fly :)    Value for money  Convenience
  • "1st trip to paris"    
    our first trip to Paris happened recently. we looked forward to this trip for months. We booked first class and were a little dissapointed, the Eurostar definition and our definition of first class differed somewhat. Not withstanding that dissapointment, the trip was uneventful and a fantastic way to get to france. I would definitely use the service again. and recommend such to others    Value for money  Convenience
  • "easy ride"    
    It was an easy and fast way to get from London to Paris.  
  • "q"    
    Seats were small. (Iam tall but not that tall 6' 2") St Pancras is a very effiicient station, as was passport control    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Paris to London"    
    Our departure from Paris was delayed by 25min. Previous service was delayed by 40min and departure terminal was overwhelmed with double the number of people. Due to a change of train configuration, all pre-assigned seats were lost. Instead there was a race to get seats together. A number of families were split up. Storage space for luggage on board is cramped. Once the train is rolling the trip is smooth and comfortable.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable and Efficient"    
    A comfortable and efficient way to travel in Europe. Save yourself time waiting around in airports. Better still get right into the centre of town with easy transport connections!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "I didn’t think I would like it"    
    Really efficient.....and comfortable. I thought I would suffer from claustrophobia, but no problems whatsoever. Very, very fast train!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "trip London to Paris"    
    excellent in every way  
  • ".LONDON ST-PANCRAS - PARIS NOR"    
    Excellent trip and service, great meal.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "BrusselS to London St-Pancras"    
    As above the convenience out ways travelling by planes with the stations are inner city also staff were so helpful for people travelling in strange countries.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great way to travel "    
    We travelled from Paris to London and to say it was great would be an unfair. It was superb! The convenience of boarding your train in central Paris and arriving in central London is fantastic and the door-to-door journey takes significantly less time than flying. The train is clean, comfortable and quick and the service is excellent. We will certainly travel this way again.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "best value train travel"    
    well organised, well informed, clean and roomy trains with NO cramped Duplex coaches, thoughtful enough to make extra room for luggage when needed.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Ashford to Paris"    
    Very Good    Value for money  Convenience
