Have I had the same bed that everyone else has purchased and reviewed?????
on 28 September 2013
Before purchasing this bed, I researched extensively, relying heavily on product reviews. As a result, prior to settling for this item, I was aware of the niggles some people had with the construction of the frame (wooden slats falling out if they turned over whilst in bed), and the limited comfort - after all it's a 'spare' and very basic needs bed. Suffice to say I had very low expectations to start with so I thought it would be fine as a spare bed for my son (10yrs) when he stayed at his grandparents, one night a week.
I sleep on a basic sprung mattress (not an ultra expensive memory foam one) and my son sleeps on a futon mattress, so our regular sleeping arrangements involve very basic levels of comfort, therefore I am truly astonished that even with the purchase of a memory foam mattress topper (decent quality one - £35), the mattress is so hard, it is actually like sleeping on the floor.
Maybe Jay-be have changed their mattress supplier recently, who knows, but how anyone can review this bed as 'okay' to sleep on, is truly astonishing. Sadly, it's been a complete waste of money.
