Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by basics bed Late on Friday night needing to sleep we started to put the bed together. Two essential parts were missing a large bolt and a foot for the stabilising leg. very disappointed, bed was a budget price but you expect it to be complete when delivered. 28 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect My 17 year old son put this together and followed the instruction properly. Absolutely perfect, sturdy and just right for his small loft bedroom! Amazing price and great style! 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good value for money Really pleased with this 4ft bed, firm and easy to put together... Very good value for money 03 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by not fit for purpose After 2 exchanges because the bed kept collapsing (even though John Lewis own staff put it together) we have given up and requested a refund 16 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE I cant believe John Lewis would sell such a inferior quality product. the slats are so thin the first time I just sat on the bed I went through as the slats broke. I'm 16 stone. 10 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not the usual John Lewis standard I bought this bed for my daughter who weighs about 7stone 4 lbs and within the year of purchase it has completely buckled and some of the slats cracked. The legs were a problem from the beginning with the middle leg falling off within a month of use. Extremely poor quality and if I could have found my receipt I would have returned it. I have now ordered the white wooden small double and hope this is better quality. 21 October 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not good quality Usually very happy with the quality of John Lewis products, but had this bed less than a year when the centre struts started to slip to the side and the bed tilts and bends in the middle. Bed is unusable now - don't think I'll buy from John Lewis again after this. 12 October 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not use on Laminate Floor We bought this two weeks ago however this has already failed. The central strut supports slid and strut collapsed and pulled the screws through the metal frame. I would not recommend this bed. Poor quality. John Lewis service great but the product isnt John Lewis quality. 29 September 2014
