"I bought the king size of this bed frame back in September 2007 (it's now October 2016)and it's still going strong! In fact, I'm leaving this review because until I read Ben's review about his peeling veneers I didn't even think the finish could be veneer. My frame has certainly stood the test of time and it still looks like solid wood! I'm surprised too that his mattress hangs over the edge - perhaps it was one he bought from a Swedish vendor which are slightly different sizes. I say this because, as Simon commented, there is a very slight gap between the edge of the mattress and the inside of the wooden frame. Certainly no overhang!
My parents also bought the same bed frame (independently - without any promotion from me) and they have had theirs for a good six years now.
The only thing I would highlight is it helps to place rubber pads under each foot if you have wooden floors as this stops the frame from moving. After nine years every now and again I have to tap the side of the headboard to push the dowels back into place - but less frequently with the pads in place. You can buy them online cheaply."
"Bought this for my son, who is a sturdy lad. He finds it very comfy, with an ikea sultan mattress on it. Very solid, strong, looks nice, easily put together.Thinking of getting the double for myself."
"firstly the good bits:looks good in a light room.
and now the bad: the bed is mainly vaneer that peels from the bed, the matress hangs over the side so no support there the frame is made from metal and not attached to the bed that leaves gaps top and bottom. i was sold this with a 2 comfort mattress but its well known in the bed market that spring slats cant be sold with anything under memory foam as they give no support. DO not buy this bed frame."
"We had already bought one as a guest bed. We have oiled hardwood floor boards so we wanted to be able to see them, hence we went for this rather than a divan. Ourselves and guests find it very comfortable. Two years later, we bought another as a guest bed for my mother's house. On both occasions they were easy to put together, slightly more care needed on the wooden floor so as not to scratch the floor boards. Both purchases were King-size with a firmness level 4 mattress, no problems sleeping. Delivery was excellent. The bed comes flat-pack, so is easy for tight access bedrooms. As they are spare beds, I cannot comment on full-usage durability, but they meet our needs and the first bed still looks pristine. Be aware that because it has a frame, it occupies a slightly larger area than a divan."
"Superb bed, very robust :) easy to put together, LOVE the wide strut across the headboard - perfect for ipod unit and cup of tea."
"Good bedframe, the style is just what I want. Easy to order at my local store and friendly sales person. What let it down was that in single the black frame is not attached to bed rails and is lose, I didn't think I could sleep on this so had to get someone in to do a quick job on the bedframe. "
"Fantastic Bedframe, do not be put off by the other reviews written bout the "Metal" base, they may be confused with cheap imitations. I have two of these for spare rooms and have had my son back from uni for 8 months and sleeping in one of them and it has stood the test. It is a great bedframe and excellent value for money."
"first the good bit frame easy to put together, Now the bad frame appears to be not very sturdy and I wish id brought a bed where the metal frame supported all the mattress. having spent £900 on a mattress that now hangs over each end by around 6" and will most likely be damaged over time."
"Lovely frame! Very easy to assemble and looks so stylish!"
"I love this bed it is so beautiful very pleased"
"Firstly the positive. It looks nice when it is built. Don't be deceived by the look of this frame. It is poor quality "wood" covered in a veneer finish. Easy enough to assemble but fingers the size of a 5 year old would be handy for the fiddly bits. We bought this for occassional use in our spare bedroom because we liked the finished look. Not sure if it would be sturdy enough to withstand daily use over a period of time."
"Very pleased with quality of this bed frame. Put together in less than 2 hours. Bit fiddly but with two people made it easier. Frame is shorter than base but with heavy mattress it dies not appear to be a problem. Delivered as agreed and on time. "
"Absolutely regret buying this bed.
The base for the mattress is much shorter than the bed frame itself which leaves the mattress it is supposed to be supporting unsupported, also the base is independent of the bed frame and able to move. This leaves my new mattress hanging over the base at one end of the bed and will over time I have no doubt damage the mattress.VERY POOR DESIGN.I did contact customer service who's advise was to turn the base around and this would make it longer!!!! "
"very nice thank you.,"
"Purchased one of these 3 years ago for our Guest House, now retired brought one for our retirement. built in under a hour by 2 of us. looks great nice and solid."
"Great beds which look fantastic and are really solid, at a great price! We have 4 of the single beds and use them in holiday lets, so they do get a lot of use. We've had no problems with them at all and have been asked where we got them, because our guests love them so much.
With regards to the review about nuts coming loose, we haven't had any creaking or issues with this; but ours are the single beds which maybe are different. Highly recommended and we are about to buy 2 more!"
"In order to be fair, I should point out the positives. The Hip Hop bed frame is attractive and provides a comfortable nights sleep. I should also say that it represents good value for money - albeit with a caveat.
My main concern is in its construction, which although it appears solid, may give rise to problems. Whilst I have owned this bed frame for four years or so, it has always been slightly creaky. Having recently moved house, I noted that one of the nuts and bolts that hold the frame together was loose. This later caused the bed to collapse when I sat down on it! I discovered that this was as a consequence of the self tapping nut/bolt being pulled from the frame. I attempted to screw the nut back in, but once the wood has been stripped the problem reoccurs. This left me with a bed frame that potentially may need to be thrown away.
In short, the frame represents good value over the time that I have owned it, but rather short lived by other standards."
"I got this bed in the small double size and it doesn't feel like a small double at all, it feels more like a double when you are laid in it, which I suppose is a good thing. The bed was very simple and straight forward to put together, the process also did not take very long. The bed also seems to be very strong and durable and appears as though it will last a long time, touch wood. My bed also looks a lot better than the one that was in the shop as the wood looks darker and not as shiny, which I prefer. All in all, I have slept in the bed for one night so far and had a great night sleep and didn't want to get out of bed. The delivery was quick, it was scheduled for the afternoon between 12pm and 6pm and was delivered at just after 1pm (which makes a change because everything we normally get delivered doesn't come until the last minute) and the delivery people also took the boxes upstairs to the bedroom. This has been a great purchase and I recommend Bensons For Beds,"
"I really regret buying this bed frame!
The base for the mattress is independent to the fame itself. This wouldn't be a problem if it had been made the correct size but Bensons have shamelessly scrimped on the metal frame size and wooden slats and I now have a base far too small for the mattress it is supposed to support! Incredibly poor design for not a cheap product.
There are big gaps at the head and foot of the bed where the mattress just hangs over with no support. No doubt this will ruin the mattress in the long run. The slats are also over 6cm wide which every company seems to advise against when buying a bed.
Whilst it looks nice as a frame sadly I feel rather ripped off and worry that the expensive mattress I will inevitably buy will be damaged in the long term due to the poor quality base. I'd suggest buying a frame from elsewhere.

"This arrived today, had text confirming delivery and a personal call from delivery people to ask if they could deliver early as in the area. My 18 year old took delivery and they took it up to his room. By the time I got home from work he had built it. He said it went together easily and with other pieces of matching furniture from the range it looks really good. Very pleased with our purchase"
"Love this bed was very easy to put together nice quality and look and the small double is a great option for a growing teenger or if you just don't have a massive room my son loves his would recommend."
"Delivery in less than 5 days from date purchased from Store, 2 polite phone calls to confirm date and time of delivery. Actual delivery was spot on time, packaged really really well. Very easy to assemble even on my own!!!
vey sturdy solid bed, looks great and well made, would highly reccomend, even when at full price!"
"This will go down as one of my best buys ever. Great product, great price. Quality. If you want a sturdy standardly stylish bed; this fits the bill. Bought it with the Silentnight micro pocket double bed. Amazing comfort £1000 total well worth it.
Downsides...hmmm, well I do hit my leg every now and again on the frame getting off the bed from the bottom end, but that's just me being silly. Had it for 3 months now...no regrets 0% finance...paid off now anyways."
"First night in my new bed. Professional salesmen - really helpful, and excellent delivery service. The bed was easy to put together, (even by women-haha) and tools were included. Looks good in my room - smart and well finished. So far so good........."
"Initially a great bed. However a few years on, the plastic supports which hold the wooden slats have all become brittle and snapped.
The bed has only been used 3x week with a light 9 stone on it. I am waiting to hear from Bensons For Bed's customer services to see if they can replace the plastic supports"
"Delighted with the value and quality. Lovely solid bed, beautifully finished. Exceedingly easy to put together. Delighted."
"Purchased this bed for my 9 year old son & I am absolutely disgusted with the service from Bensons Beds. The hip hop bedstead was faulty on arrival & really bad workmanship. Bensons Beds arranged for a replacement & again the bed was faulty. I have now asked for a full refund & have been offered no compensation for the inconvenience of waiting for deliveries & cost of phone calls & still having to wait a 3rd time for the bed to be collected & then go into the shop for a full refund. As a result I will never shop with Bensons beds again. Really disappointed & horrendous customer experience journey. "
"Got this bed as a replacement for my son after he grew out of his cot bed. Arrived missing a slate that was replaced by customer services. However the frame has had excess glue on the solid Ash that I've rectified myself. This was followed up with Bensons and after 3 weeks I'm no closer to a resolution. Not impressed. Overall a good quality product but has quality issue and the customer service offered has been poor."
"Weve had this bed for a little over three years now and to date have been very pleased with it. The truckle is very sturdy and we had no complaints until now. its like the glue holding the veneer has suddenly given up and it's all starting to peel. Very disappointing. Would only recommend this bed if you only want it to look good for three years or less."
"Bought these for my sons when they moved from cots into proper beds; they were easy to assemble and the rounded corners and light coloured wood make them ideal for children. The wish bones make for a very comfy, supported feel under the mattress, they feel exceptionally sturdy and well made, I'm sure they'll last for years. Delivery was quick, liked being kept informed of delivery date & time, price was excellent as purchased in the sale. Would definitely recommend."
"DO NOT BUY THIS MISLEADING SOLD PRODUCT!!!
We bought the hip hop double bed a few years back, and recently, the laminate wood effect on one of the headboard's uprights started peeling away. It was at this point that I wondered which part of the bed was actually solid ash and which were ash veneer. Cue three separate phone calls to BfB's customer services, all of which resulted in three different answers from their "expert" staff. One said the sides were solid. Another said it was the panel in the headboard. Amusingly, one said it was, and I quote, "laminate over solid wood as it was more robust"! Do BfB think we came down in the last shower?
In fact, I'm so unhappy with my supposedly "solid ash and ash veneer" bed that I'm planning on taking it back to a BfB store and sawing all the pieces in half to prove that none of it is solid ash. It looks so unsightly with the peeling laminate upright that I want rid of it anyway.
I'm sure their description of the bed is in breach of the Trades Description Act. I await BfB's reply with great anticipation.
"I bought this bed for my daughter after some first class service from a sales lady whose customer service was exceptional. The bed arrived on time, and as promised BfB kept me informed of times etc. on the run up to delivery. It's a lovely bed frame, really solid and great quality. It was extremely easy to put together and overall I'm delighted with it. "
"Bought this bed 8 years ago, I was looking for a nice high, solid bed as I have arthritis in my knees .I coud'nt be happier!"
"Bought the single bed for my son, really easy to assemble, ordered online, delivery and service exactly as promised. The finish is really good, and for a wooden bed is not too chunky, photos don't really do it justice. Eldest son is interested in the small double now!"
"Lovely bed.bought it for my son as he too big for single.He very happy with it "
"Our fist offering was very second hand and we had to have it replaced. The replacement was a lot better but still had a small dent in the headboard. Pity, as it's lovely stuff and fundamentally well engineered."
"Just purchased for my son very easy to put together, sturdy, well made, brought with sealy mattress told me very comfortable nights sleep"
"Bought 2 double beds one for my son and daughter, excellent quality, very well made and very good service. Would recommend highly."
"My son is extremely pleased with this bed and we were very impressed with the quality and design of the 4'6" double bed frame.
It was delivered very quickly, exactly on time as specified. The drivers were very friendly and helpful and the packaging was very good indeed. No damage, no broken parts, nothing missing. What more could you ask for.
I would certainly deal with this company again, could not fault anything. Excellent service from start to finish!!"
"We bought the double frame to replace a divan base and I absolutely love it! Very well made; no wobbling and everything lines up perfectly. There are 'hidden' legs down the centre of the bed for extra sturdiness and it was easy to put together for two people. It looks fantastic and goes really well with our current (mismatched) wooden furniture. Not only does this bed look lovely, but the nice curved edges mean no bruises if you accidentally walk into the corner in the dark!
I would definately recommend this frame."
"Solid and nice looking frame. Excellent service in store when ordering and courteous delivery driver, on time and very efficient!! Thankyou all. "
"Great frame. Excellent service from malcolm in kingston and the drivers were very efficient and on time. Definitely recomend bensons for beds. "
"Bought this for my son and he loves it. Good looking bed, well made and the price was fantastic value for money"
"Really easy to assemble... Looks great. Fab choice"
"Brilliant solid frame bed easy to build and matches my room great .. Reccomend this great deal my boyfriend has just bought one too "
"Bought this bed in my local Bensons store after reading other reviews. Was not disappointed good solid bed and got it at sale price."
"Very impressed with this bed, good value for money and very easy to assemble the bed frame is well made, would recommend this bed"
"Really pleased with the quality ofthis bed andlooks great too. No regrets."
"We have had this bed a good while now, the frame itself is sturdy and easy to assemble. However the veneer comes off which is very disappointing. We now have to purchase another bed as this does not look attractive. I would also suggest that it feels very small in length and width compared to out her double beds we have had. It is a shame as the bed looks great in the shop, I'm just glad I didn't buy the matching furniture otherwise replacing would be an expensive job! "
"Great value and even better quality...Highly recommed it"
"LOVE THIS BED GREAT VALUE "
"excellent quality easy assembly went to purchase a freezer from currys and just popped in and could not resist we never got our freezer"
"Our cats had ripped our old divan bed to shreds so we decided to replace it with a wooden frame. This Hip Hop frame is inexpensive but a great choice. It is very stable. It does not creak when we roll over in our sleep and we can now get out of bed without waking each other. It is a nice modern design too which suits our decor.
Of course, the best thing is that our cats don't scratch it."
"bought this in a Small Double to fit small bedroom. It is excellent value for money and very well finished. Was delivered within a time slot of two hours. Received a phone call to say they were five minutes away. Came flat packed but was so easy to assemble. Looks really great
"So cosy..... I sleep like a log :)"
"Very happy with this well made bed! Looks great and easy to put together. Built it with my Dad but probably could be done alone."
