On a day trip to Lille (unknowingly to become an impromptu mini-break) we assembled in festive mood in the Booking Office at 7.45. Three quarters of an hour to spare to get to security. No problem.
The room is grand,maybe a bit grand at first a.m., when people are thin on the ground.
Okay, so the tea was good and prompt. But delivery time on the three breakfasts was a patience tester. Especially given that the room was bare of customers. At these prices that’s unforgivable. Hell knows what got me to choose pancakes and bacon for breakfast but I did, so no one else can be blamed for that. Bit dry.
We made the train in time for boarding. Alas, it was a different story in the evening.
