Oh dear, that may be why the price has been reduced! Would love a 6ft bed, but our 4 ft 6 will have to do. Just thought it was a good price if anyone was after a 6ft bed :-)

As long as you don't have a active sex life & don't toss & turn in your sleep & are not slightly overweight I guess it would be fine

I will give M&S one thing.













It did burn well.

Without the one comment on the bed not lasting this would be a super hot deal. Is there any reason it only lasted 6 months? It looks solid enough.

One of the side supports split in two

Did you contact M&S about it before you got the axe out? After 6 months it would have still been under warranty surely? What did they say?

i would have thought M&S beds (and anything else from there) would have been a quality product and at this price it would have got hotter than the sun. I bought a bed from dreams almost 3 years back and i assembled it with some additional engeineering know how and its perfect.... been bouncing on the bed for a few years now and no problems ;)

oh and i paid less than that for the bed and a similar price for a silent night memory foam topped matteres :)

For £699 I'd be wanting solid Oak all round, not a couple of small pieces of solid white oak or oak veneer to mislead you into thinking that you are getting a solid oak bed. A full solid oak bed....now that would make it a scorching hot deal....

Oak vaneer reduced from £699 to £209 tells me that its not popular and aint selling so they want to shift them asap. all in all, more over-priced cheap tat made to look like you are getting good value.

I don't agree. If you look on there, the small, double, and king prices are considerably higher than the super king, so all that tells me is people havent got the room to fit a super king so m&s are reducing this heavily to get rid because they arnet selling. Why else would a bed a lot bigger in size be cheaper than a bed half its size. :-) Oh and I ordered this the other day and my chippe mate is gonna reduce it for me to a king so it can accomodate the kingsize mattress I bought from lidl for £90 the other day. I love this site.....

However the Single is going for £449 and the King for £599 ... they've more likely reduced it as most people struggle to fit a Super King bed in their bedroom and are therefore not as popular.
#15
how is that chep
#16
M&S have been selling the sonoma range for many years now and is very popular
I have the bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers over 5 years now and i cannot fault them
The bed is mega solid and lovely quality
This is a real bargain ;)
#17
the bed is fine.

I have 2 superkings in our house and this is one of them. Easy to assemble and pretty solid.

Very hot.

I paid £380 earlier this year.
#18
Good price - if it is poor it can always be returned. Hot.
#19
Was looking at these instore yesterday and really like it, nearly bought the kingsize. Thanks for the heads up, should be here in 6 weeks :)

Now to find a decent mattress......
#20
it doesn't look real oak and the fact they are hiding bed frame with a mattress very sneaky

It says It's not all real oak......

if you'd read the description then you wouldn't put that.

Slatted base with centre support.

great bed for sub £300... get a decent mattress for £500 or so and you have a huge bed for little more than a decent double.

Once you've slept in a super-king you'll never go back! PLUS... Debenhams often have cheap superking sheets in their sale section. As do House of Fraser.

This week I picked up a flat sheet (500 thread) for £9 (from £40) and quilt covers with pillowcases for only £40 (from over £200...) you really shouldn't argue at these prices.
#23
support frame is prolly timber wood you cant see the thickness of whole frame with mattress in the way
looks like 25mm thickness

If you are think of upgrading to a superking size bed, be warned that cheap bedding is very rarely found and supermarkets don't seem to sell them anymore.
#28
Excuse me for being thick- but what size mattress would I order as cant seem to see correct dimensions? I can only see the dimensions of the bed and obviously the mattress needs to go inside that!

So how can a cheaper bed which is a lot larger than the singles, and doubles be cheap tat. The only differences in the beds is the size not the quality of the materials, so no I dont agree, and nor do most people on here pal.

This looks a great deal. I have some M&S furniture that has so far lasted 10 years so am happy with their quality.
Does anyone know how tall the space is underneath the bed is? I'm really tempted with this but currently have plastic drawers underneath our bed so they may not fit. Not sure my local M&S will have it so I can go along and measure.

Mine's being delivered 1st march, apparently they'll build it too!

Gives me a few weeks to find a mattress. Any brands to look out for? Or avoid?

Went in dreams the other week and they seemed very over priced, any places online offer any sort of returns if It's not comfortable?

They have confirmed delivery for me on 21/02 although they didn't mention building it for me, but I will be asking now.

It depends how much you want to pay for a mattress. I visited Leekes a local department store as I think you need to try before you buy with a Mattress. The sales guy highly recommended a Rest Assured Trivento mattress which was on sale for £549, although I have managed to find it for around £450 online.

He explained that this is specifically designed for bedsteads having a better supported non slip base etc and whilst I'm sure everyone will have an opinion on whether this was just a sales pitch, he did show us an alternative which was a Sealy for £200 more and there were alot more expensive ones there and non as comfortable as the Trivento.

I have also looked at memory foam on ebay and you can get one for £150ish although I don't really like the memory foam one I have now.

I am undecided and am eager to find out if anyone has found any good deals?
#34
I was thinking of no more than £400, but like you say, trying it seems essential.

Too many options, pocket sprung, open coil, memory foam etc.

Sure I read somewhere that you shouldn't have a pocket sprung with a 'slatted' bed, is that correct?

That's what I thought but the guy in Leekes seemed to know his stuff. He was upfront in saying that any type of mattress will not last as long on a slatted base as it would on a divan.

I have a kingsize memory foam on a slatted base and it's only lasted just over 3 years, although it was cheap at the time (£200ish) and you get what you pay for which is why I was looking for advice this time.

The guy said that the Trivento mattress was the only mattress they did specifically for a bedstead/slatted base. He said that the corners are reinforced and the base is anti slip and was confident it would last longer than a mattress without these features.

I really don't want pure memory foam as like the support of springs however I like the top layer to be soft so this mattress seemed perfect. bedworld.net do it for £459 but also have 10% quidco bringing it down to £413.10 so unless any other deals are posted I think I will probably go for this.

The difficulty with mattresses is that a brand will supply the same mattress to say 5 retailers, but each retailer will have it's own name for it so it's really difficult to compare like for like.

Goodness, search 'Sonoma' on M&S - you could have the entire house in co-ordinated Sonoma, from the bedroom to lounge to dining to kitchen units and even the taps!

Considering getting one of these - our leather superking bed was lovely when we got it about 7 yrs ago but they're far too chavvy now!!
#37
Ordered mine now and the are delivering on Saturday 5th March and are even going to build it!!!

I've narrowed a mattress down to a pocket sprung, with memory foam on top. Found one in my local shop for 600, wasn't looking at spending more than 400 really though.

Anybody else spotted any?

Not £400 but a bit better than £600 - £478 & £40 postage

Could the issue of using sprung mattresses on a slatted base not be addressed by laying a sheet of hardboard on top of the slats? To my mind this would disperse the weight across the mattress and eliminate any problems ...

What might be a slightly better solution would be to use pegboard (assuming they still make it) - the hardboard with the holes drilled through it - to help ventilation.
