Rated 5 out of 5 by 330boyscout Very good Buy
We have had this fan for over a month, and on for
most of the day in our front room, and are very pleased with it, and with the sure knowledge that if it has any problems it is covered with a 3 year Guarantee, we intend to buy another for our bedroom.

The whole process of ordering and collecting went really well. We are very pleased with how the product operates, even better than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by martidj So pleased we bought it in time
An excellent piece of kit which is not at all noisy except on the highest speed. It is a perfect height for the bedroom and light enough to be carried downstairs when required. The timer function is very useful as is the remote control strategically place by the bed. Couldn't be happier with the fan especially in this weather.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Emma184 Good...for 9 days!
Worked perfectly for 9 days. Slightly noisy but soon got used to it and did not keep me awake. However...woke up around 2am one morning to fan making odd noise, was still rotating, but not blowing out any air at all. Tried on/off several times to no avail. Broken after 9 days! Not happy! Returned to store but sold out of all fans so can't replace with different brand!

Rated 3 out of 5 by csun OK but not Holmes brand but Bionaire
I am surprised to see it is labeled as Bionaire brand not Holmes as stated on the website.
Could have gone for the other Bionaire BT19 model which seems similar function but cheaper if I knew the actual product is the same brand.
Works fine so far, we use it in the living room and helps cooling down the room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by London13 Looks ok, but noisy and bad...
Unfortunately I am very disappointed with this fan, I ordered two fans and while unboxing the first one I was initially thrilled about its tall height and fairly sleek design. Problem started once I plugged it in, fan had poor finishing build quality, (btw fans where labeled Bionaire, not Holmes but with same model number) cheap plastic and had a very flimsy oscillating function. The fan is way too noisy and does not keep the same speed. It struggles to stay on a constant rpm and it will keep you awake even on its lowest setting, the oscillating function sadly makes it even more unreliable and noisy, so I was unable to use it in the bedroom. I called customer service and explained my problem; they set up a return for me within minutes. As always dealing with John Lewis, service is impeccable, they have outstanding customer relations and I will now simply have to find something better (perhaps the Dyson AM05 or NScessity Ultimate Tower Fan). Truly enjoy and recommend buying anything from any John Lewis department store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by paul2013 seems expensive, but elegant and unobtrusive
Nicely designed with simple modes, programmable with a timer (very useful at night) and breeze/sleep modes. More of a fan heater type design turned vertically, not a traditional fan blade design, so not whisper quiet, but perfect if you want something that rotates and operates (visually) unobtrusively. On lowest setting, it is quiet; the highest setting is probably too noisy for bedtime.
It's impressively thin, a little wider than a coke can, but for stability, the base is about the size of a large dinner plate. Despite the size, power use is 40 watts, no more than a desk fan and less than most at this price point.
Seems expensive, but it contains a control pad, remote sensor and receiver, programmable modes, etc so it's a little more advanced than the usual fan.
