  • "Could’ve been better"    
    We unfortunately had the seats that faced opposite 2 other passengers which was not shown when we purchased the tickets. It was really uncomfortable as you could not stretch your legs under the seat in front of you as you can in every other seat. No plug ins for charging Phones meant our phones were almost flat by arrival time :(    Value for money  Convenience
  • "LONDON - PARIS / PARIS - LON"    
    Excellent service , very efficient    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great way to end Holiday"    
    10 weeks away from home what a great way to leave London for a night in Paris then flight home! Stayed at Opera Hotel which was great, we traveled first class on Eurostar which we presumed would give us access to the Champagne Bar (alas no) Meal on train with wine was fairly good. Highly recommended.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Across Europe"    
    Trip went smoothly. Train ran exactly to schedule.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Paris to London"    
    Trip was more than satisfactory. The service was what you would expect on a train. Not as a commercial jet but satisfactory just the same. Convenience was the main factor in our choice.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "First EuroStar trip"    
    Very good trip but would have preferred to have been facing the direction of travel. Do not recall any option to specify this when booking.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Very good"    
    Thank you very good.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "London to Paris - Solo"    
    The train was delayed leaving London as staff had not arrived.....this was in convenient. The check in process was horrendous....ticket scanners not working. I had to line up twice to get assistance to find my seat had been changed. No assistance at all with heavy baggage... The journey itself was good, but the check in process needs to improve....and maybe the check in staff could try smiling or showing a bit of personality instead of disdain    Value for money  Convenience
  • "PARIS NORD - LONDON ST-PANCRAS"    
    Need better catering for elderly people, but once we got a wheelchair the service was very good although the steps from the platform to the train are not entirely suitable for the elderly . Otherwise an enjoyable trip    Value for money  Convenience
  • "90 minutes delay due to water "    
    The train was delayed 90 minutes due to the floods. It is most important to be safe so better to be late than hurry and add unnecessary risk to the journey.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "How easy is this!"    
    Really easy way to get from London to Paris!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Very Happy"    
    Very happy with travel from London to Paris Smooth and comfortable travel    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Well done"    
    Very good    Value for money  Convenience
  • "FIRST CLASS WAITING AREA "    
    We arrived at the station about an hour early and made our way through the crowd to the First Class waiting area. Imagine our disappointment and embarrassment when we were refused admission to this quiet refuge. The reason? Despite having First Class tickets we were advised they were not the right type. The waiting room was operated by a different company to the train service. The qualification for admission was not a First Class rail ticket, but another type of ticket. Other passengers were caught by the same exclusion at the same time. This might have been covered in the small print in the conditions of travel (I didn't look) but this was not obvious. Besides, if one purchases a First Class ticket one expects access to all First Class privileges. I recommend that access to the lounge for all First Class ticket holders be arranged with the operators of the lounge. The train journey itself was fine.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Before Boarding at Paris Nord"    
    There was little seating at Paris Nord while waiting to board the train and many people standing around with luggage very uncomfortably. The area was cold and bleak. The trip was comfortable and interesting - very worthwhile. I would take it again in preference to a flight. As, on arrival at St Pancreas, one is centrally located without a horrendous commute from an airport.    Value for money  Convenience
