John Lewis Wilton Bedframes, Double
Nice looking bed
I ordered this bed for our spare room in the pine finish. It is much better looking than the photo. I thought the finish on it was very good. It was very easy to assemble. The delivery guys were excellent in getting it up a tight staircase to the correct bedroom. I bought the John Lewis value pocket mattress and it is very comfortable.

Just as described and good value for money!
Really pleased with the product received. Read the previous reviews and was a little nervous about quality (no centre post) and assembly. However, it is very sturdy, well made and extremely simple to put together (took less than 30 minutes). Not sure how other posters took so long/has difficulty putting this up? as it really was extremely simple.
Would recommend the product overall, especially for the price as this was very competitive.

Bought the white version. Paint finish is barely adequate, front face of headboard had a split in the centre where the vertical bar has been pushed in, probably a knot under the paint and a chip on the footboard. As others have said only six screws for the slats which move about and no centre leg. The pine one in the store was better but the woodwork is a bit rough and ready. We bought the Kirby last year which is so much better, stronger, has a centre leg, sprung slats and it's £25 cheaper. Unfortunately we wanted white. Made a mistake with this one.

Cannot fault this bed
It is strong, good looking and is well made.I put a JL ortho 1200 mattress on it and is is very comfortable with no issue of slats making a noise as previously reported. The dimensions for the double Wilton show the mattress size and not the actual dimensions which are 201cm L x 101cm H x 144cm W. I also bought the small double and more expensive Devon bed and there is not a great deal of difference, however the small double Wilton would not fit the space, otherwise I would have bought another Wilton bed to save on cost.

Lovely but would benefit from an additional supporting leg
The bed frame was purchased for my main bedroom (along with the John Lewis Natural Collection Cotton Double Mattress). It was exactly as the photo and description described it to be and perfect for what I wanted. It was pretty easy to assemble (you need 2 of you) however I would agree with other reviewers, that it was surprising for a bed of this slatted design to not have a middle supporting leg - after we had assembled the frame, my Dad checked and the slats were 'bowing' with movement - so we improvised and added an additional supporting leg #taken from the old bed I was disposing of, of a similar design# to the middle of the structure, which has done the trick.
Had this been provided by the manufacter I would have rated the bed 5 god stars and excellent.
The delivery guys were very pleasant, organised, and very courteous and great representatives of John Lewis.

outstanding quality for excellent price
fantastic looking bed, exactly what I was looking for my teenage daughter. Simple white bed and with a realistic price. Easy to put up (needs 2 people) and straight forward instructions to follow too. Possibly could do with more screws for the slats but being picky. My daughter is so please with this bed as she says its very comfortable along with the value mattress from john lewis and it doesn't squeak at all and very robust. Thank you John Lewis, other stores do not even close! Oh and delivery men very polite too.

This is a great bed frame and really good value for money. The only issue i have is that there was a hole missing where a screw was meant to go in the slats - this was a bit of a pain but sorted with a drill.
