John Lewis Value Apollo Bedstead, Metallic, Double
nice bed remains unfinished
The bed is sturdy and looks good - it was bougt for my teenage daughters room. However, as mentioned in other reviews for this product a hole was badly aligned so the screw could not go through. I am waiting for a replacement part to be delivered and suggest if you buy this product have it assembled by John Lewis so that they can rectify any problems straight away.

This bed is very cheap but very sturdy. It is excellent value for money. Bought for a spare room for occasional use but would suit teenager's room. Usual JL high standards. had bed assembled by JL team and they had to drill extra hole in frame so would recommend assembly-it only took them 20mins but well worth it.

Great budget bed fit for purpose.
This was bought for my son who was furnishing his first flat on a tight budget. Surprisingly this was one of the cheapest beds on the market, and was purchased on the back of the good reviews. Putting it together was straight forward and the tools required were supplied with the bed. It looks good and there is plenty of storage space underneath. It is quite light in weight but seems strong enough.My son is very pleased with it. The only reason it has not got five stars is because it was missing three of the plastic clips.These are being sent out today by customer services.

This is the fourth Apollo bed I have purchased from JL and this is the first time I have a complaint.
One of the metal struts had a hole missing and I had to drill it through myself so I could insert the bolt and finish constructing the bed.
Apart from that the beds are very sturdy and great value.

Sturdy & Strong
Slightly bigger than I expected, nonetheless fits nicely and has plenty of room for storage underneath. I was concerned that it might be cold to touch especially during the winter months- but this is not the case as the frame is quiet big and you hardly come into contact with the frame.

Simple yet effective
Good value, for room that needed furnishing. The frame had clear instructions and I even managed to build this on my own! A sense of fulfilment, knowing the price was right, the goods were what I expected and the visual display looked better than the photo image.
A big thanks to the drivers who were most polite, courteous, and generally well mannered. I was given an expected date for despatch and guess what it came before the expected day! Customer services was excellent, call centre for booking deliveries were clear speaking and again well mannered-it really does go along way...
Well done John Lewis, first purchase, first impressions were outstanding and will buy again soon.

so far so good
Did not enjoy putting it together - side bars are not interchangable, but once together bed is comfortable and looks attractive.
If I ever need another bed I would reccomend this bed due to its reasonable price and comfort.
