Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apollo Bedstead Very pleased with this bed. Sturdy and easy to build. It's quite a high bed which is good for my son because he can store lots of stuff/junk underneath it. Very good value for money. 14 July 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing This is a replacement item - the first bed frame started to collapse after very little use. As the design has apparently changed, JL were happy to exchange it despite being outside the normal warranty period. I had hoped all would be well. However, a similar problem has occurred in that the central supporting leg has started to slip again, weakening the bolt holding it to the frame. I would suggest that this bed is not suitable for use on a laminate floor due to slipping, but this could be avoided with the addition of rubber pads on the bed legs. I am now in the process of trying to find these. Perhaps JL staff, normally very product-knowledgeable, could bear this in mind when other customers are interested in buying this product? I'm afraid, despite its apparent value-for-money, I would not recommend it. 03 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice looking Modern and cool but does not take too much weight. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value for Money Perfect for my needs: spare bedroom, regular use by pre-teenage children and occasional use by a 13 stone adult. Maybe I would recommend a more robust bedstead for permanent use by a fully-grown adult but for any other use it is tremendous value for money. I have experienced none of the problems reported by previous reviewers. 18 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by BEWARE - cannot be disassembled... I bought this bed for my young son about three years ago and it has been great (not sure I'd recommend it for an adult, but for a child it's fine). However, I came to disassemble it recently only to discover that this is practically impossible. On each black plastic section that is used to join the ends of the wooden slats to the metal frame, there are two "plugs" that go into holes in the frame. When you come to remove these, they simply break. I know what you're thinking - I'm probably just clumsy - well, I was extremely careful when trying to remove them, employing a number of different techniques and several different tools, but all to no avail (I have three usable plastic end sections left - the rest are now useless). I guess it's possible mine were incorrectly manufactured but I suspect this is probably a basic design flaw. Anyone considering buying this bed should be aware of this (I assume the majority positive reviews are from owners yet to attempt disassembly). It's an OK bed if you never want to disassemble it, but I do, and now I simply have a collection of scrap metal and wood.....and no bed. John Lewis customer services were unwilling to help, offering only to sell me replacements of the plastic sections (which are flawed by design). The product description should clearly state "Not suitable for disassembly" or similar.... 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect :) I purchased this bed for my 3 year old as he had out grown his toddler bed. After reading some of the reviews about the bed slats i was slightly concerned but there was no need. Each slat fixes to the bed and a metal rod secures in the middle. I put this bed together on my own in no time, very easy indeed. This bed is perfect! And for the price isn't unbelievable good value. Very happy customer :) 27 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good value for the money looks good in the spare room, excellent value delivered free too! 19 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic, can't complain! I have had this product for 2yrs. It was fairly easy to assemble; as I remember was easier with two people. After letting one of my sizeable beast of a friend (130kg) sit on one end a slat did break but did not effect the comfort or future durability. For the cost the quality is great and you really can't complain. 20 May 2014
