John Lewis Helston Bedstead, Kingsize
Excellent bed, easy to assemble with very clear instructions. Looks great and doesn't creak. We WERE very happy... Unfortunately after a couple of weeks two joins started to crack quite badly. A new one was delivered, but a few weeks later the same cracks have appeared in the replacement. Big shame, as we'd love to keep it, but can't because it breaks - hence the 1 star. (We're not even overweight!)

Bed presumably made from MDF is very heavy, but seems robust. Foot-end corners are too sharp - a hazard for knees or children.

Great Guest Bed
Bought this double Downton bedstead for my spare room with a Vi Sprung mattress. I left the review for awhile to get feed back from my family and friends once they had used it. They all say the bed is really comfortable with no creaks etc. The delivery guys were fantastic, efficient and tidy. The bedstead looks far more expensive than it cost and is a great addition to what was once a storage room to a now fantastic elegant guest room. Thank you John Lewis once again you have proved to be my favourite store.

Nice bed and good colour
Like the bed, it does creak quite often when I turn over though. Also, JL rang on delivery day to tell me a part wouldn't be delivered so they couldn't assemble but they came 2 days later and finished the job. Fits beautifully with JL ortho 1200 mattress. Downton makes a nice bedroom set, esp in the light grey.

Lovely bed, great service
We arranged for our downtown bed to be delivery on the day my partner and myself moved into our first home together- great on time delivery however the bed was manufactured incorrectly so we ended up having to sleep on our mattress on the floor. Although this was a pain, I cannot fault the service I received in order to sort the issue- new bed wasn't available for over a week however a very nice 'inspector' arrived the next morning with the correct bits so at least we could complete the building of the bed until a new one was delivered. Long story short, we were incredibly impressed with john lewis and especially Rosa, the lady I personally dealt with- we received a card and vouchers the day after the new delivery.
