Has had/ Had or had had

Post by Frieda » Thu Feb 28, 2019 9:38 am

"They didn`t look very well"?

"Hardly had we arrived, when they had had (? or have had ?) to take a break."

I would choose have had because had had sounds a little bit strange. Is this correct?
Thanks for your response!

Hardly had we arrived when they had to take a break.
