Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by So much for a good nights sleep I bought this bed in April for my son but he has been complaining of late about how uncomfortable the bed is. So much so that my five year son, who has slept in his own bed since birth, now comes into our bed every night as he says the mattress is too lumpy! So I decided to try the bed for a night - it was horrible, so uncomfortable. So, sadly, we are buying a new bed. You pay for what you get, this is true, but we expected better from John Lewis, who we usually rely upon for quality goods. Anyone want a value single divan set? :( 02 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very uncomfortable bed We bought this bed for guests to sleep on in the spare room. I tried it out for a couple of nights & it is very uncomfortable - the hardest mattress I have ever slept on. My poor mum has just spent a week sleeping on it and her back is starting to ache. I wish we had bought a more expensive bed. Would definitely not recommend. 13 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by IDEAL Perfect. Just what I wanted for my box/spare room. Been slept in once so far by my 6'2" nephew and got the seal of approval. 09 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall great product I purchased this bed for my 3 year old daughter. It is ideal for a child or occasional use but don't feel the mattress quality would suit an adult for every night use. There is lots of storage space underneath but the base bottom would be better if it was stronger. I had read the reviews before purchasing so the bed was as expected. Overall the bed suits our needs and we are pleased with it. Delivery was within a week and deliverymen were friendly and efficient. 21 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not suitable for an adult I have bought two of these beds. The first time was a couple of years ago and it was very good value and served it's purpose well, however the second time (about two months ago) I was very disappointed. It was delivered damaged. The frame the sliding door sits on was loose but I wasn't too concerned as I could still use the space underneath. Also the board that the mattress rests on is already bowing and creaks every time I get in and out of the bed, as well as, move. Compared to the first time I bought this bed there has definitely been a change in the materials and the way the bed is constructed. I did plan on buying this bed for another room, as the storage space is excellent but it is just so uncomfortable now. I wouldn't recommend this bed for an adult, possibly a child, but it has only been two months with an average sized adult sleeping on it and it already needs replacing. 19 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Base board so weak This is a frustrating bed! It tantalises with a brilliantly large storage space. However the base board is so thin and minimally supported it could not hold any weight, so what you can actually store is very limited. Surprising design fault. 07 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money Bought as a guest bed and extremely pleased with it as my mother slept like a top when she came to stay recently! 04 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great bed/ good value The bed is good value for the money and comfortable. Good storage and quite sturdy. Disappointing delivery as the 1st TWO beds where delivered damaged. 16 December 2014
