Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simplicity is key. The Helston Kingsize is very elegant in its simplicity. It lends itself to the "Coastal" theme that is emerging in our newly refurbished sleep and relaxation space. We are really pleased with the fresh, uncluttered vibe. It is a thoroughly excellent purchase. 25 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dreaded cracks 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!) 07 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Solid bed Bed presumably made from MDF is very heavy, but seems robust. Foot-end corners are too sharp - a hazard for knees or children. 19 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 05 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it This bed is well made, and looks like a quality piece of furniture,we have received lots of nice comments from visitors. we had as expected great service from john lewis,and were happy to pay a little extra to have the bed built for us on site. we will be ordering the matching drawers very soon 29 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 24 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lovely bed I cannot fault this bed - it looks great, its comfy and well made. 11 May 2013
