Q & As

John Lewis The Basics Apollo Bedstead, Silver Metal, Small Double 4.4 5 42 42
ideal solution for smaller guest room Perfect just what I was looking for. Fits together well and looks great. 12 August 2014
You get what you pay for This bed frame is very compact and lightweight and it's nice to have a sprung slat base. It doesn't really extend beyond the mattress at all width ways so if you are buying it because you are tight on space it would be perfect. However, the quality of the metal work is extremely poor. and the tubular sections are so weak that unless you are concentrating as you construct it, you can collapse them by inadvertently over-tightening the bolts. It feels cheap and tacky. It came when expected, and the John Lewis team were helpful when I had a problem with poor threading in the central support legs, but overall I'm not particularly impressed with this product. 05 August 2014
Brilliant basic product Really efficient delivery service. Bed was simple to assemble and is very comfortable 11 March 2014
Good value item Described as a 'value' item, that is exactly what it is. Simple to put together and fairly robust once made. it is a very good buy for a guest bedroom or for a teenager who has outgrown a single bed. Unlike many so called 4ft beds, this one really is 4ft (123cm) and is therefore ideal where space is at a premium. I would recommend a fairly good (thick) mattress. Bonne Nuit. 24 November 2013
Good value product. Well priced small double bed frame. Was not put off by other reviews stating the slats were bent! They are meant to install them with curve upwards so when you lie on them, the slats flex downwards! 16 October 2013
Terrible Middle legs dont fit they are too short just like the review below says 20 July 2013
Value frame Handy for a smaller guest room which is what I chose it for. The good bit is that it easy to assemble, the instructions are logical to follow if you look carefully at the diagrams. I did it by my self in just under an hour. The worrying points are 1. the wooden slats are all bowed - I wonder if they will last. 2. the central legs that attach a two points to the middle strut of the bed are too short and don't touch the floor. I am not sure how strong the bed will be - but as it is for occasional guests rather than daily use, I am keeping fingers crossed it is going to be ok. 02 May 2013
GOOD VALUE bought for daughter, who is really pleased with this bed frame. strong and comfortable.caz 18 April 2013
