Why our sleep experts loved it

When it comes to the importance of a good night's sleep, there is truly nothing quite like it. Not only does it leave us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, but it is essential for our overall health and well-being. And at the heart of a restful slumber lies the bed itself - the centrepiece of any bedroom, and the foundation for a peaceful night's rest. It is with great pleasure then, that we introduce you to the Harvard Metal Bed Frame, a product offered by Bensons for Beds that focuses on the mid-range segment of the industry. This bed frame is truly a masterpiece of design, combining classic elegance with practicality and durability.

The Harvard Metal Bed Frame boasts a number of features that make it a great option for those in the market for a new bed. To begin with, it comes with an impressive 5-year guarantee, providing customers with peace of mind and assurance that their investment is protected. Additionally, it features a sprung slatted base, which can provide additional support and comfort for the mattress while also allowing a slightly more breathable feel than a solid base. The classic metal bed frame design is also a plus for those looking for a timeless and elegant look in their bedroom, although those with traditional room designs will most benefit. The fully chrome option available makes it even more versatile and looks just as good depending on the decor of your existing room.

One of the things that stood out to me in the customer reviews was the ease of assembly as several customers mentioned that the bed was easy to put together, even for just one person. This is a huge plus for those who may not have the tools or know-how to assemble a bed on their own. The bed is also available in double, king size and super king sizes so you can choose the perfect size for your room.

Another aspect that customers have praised is the sturdiness and solid construction of the bed with several reviewers noting that the bed is both solid and well-made, which is important for ensuring a comfortable and supportive night's sleep. Additionally, several customers mentioned that the sprung slats paired well with a variety of mattresses which is a plus for those who may already have a mattress they love but need a new frame to support it.

Lastly, several customers have also mentioned that the bed has a classic, elegant look, just like the photos provided by the retailer. Many have mentioned that it looks great in their bedroom and that it's a beautiful addition to their home. The Harvard Metal Bed Frame seems to be a good option for those looking for a sturdy, classic-looking metal bed frame at a reasonable price.

In conclusion, the Harvard Metal Bed Frame is a solid and well-built bed frame that offers a variety of features to enhance the comfort and overall sleep experience. With a 5-year guarantee, a sprung slatted base, classic metal bed frame design, and ease of assembly, this bed is a great option for anyone looking to improve their sleep environment. Additionally, the reviews suggest that it looks great and is comfortable, making it a perfect addition to any bedroom.

We like metal bed frames as they are easier to clean and sterilise over the years...Our last one was purchased 13 years ago and the mattress was the same age(shocking I know) we have been on about getting a new bed for a couple of years and after moving to a house that allowed for a Super King Size bed and seeing it was sale time we decided to check them out.....The Harvard is very well made with a great finish(white powder coating). Delivery was exactly as stated and the guys placed it exactly where I wanted it and were careful whilst delivering. This size of bed(super king) does need 2 people to put it together, you get everything you need to construct and It took the wife and I about an hour to complete the job. Obviously with a new mattress it has taken a couple of weeks to get used to but we are sleeping far better than on the old bed without both of us rolling into the middle......Definitely buy another one.

We absolutely love our Harvard bed. Having done the usual going around all the furniture store's. We settled on the Harvard at Bensons. Not the cheapest or the most expensive but unpon being able to see the frame it was one of the better quality in it price range. I found the store experience a bit of Deer in headlights and it felt very much like when a Lion on a Gazelle.. I found however it was not only cheaper to purchase the bed online than it was instore but also quicker delivery by about 3 weeks (go figure) I'll be clear though, I doubt I'd have purchased this bed had I not seen it beforehand though. I would happily recommend this bed in terms of appearance and build. Comfort is a pointless factor as that is all dependent on the mattress and personal preference.

Harvard Metal Bed Frame - white. Good sturdy metal frame. Well made and good quality. Seems fine so far , comfortable with a new mattress , no noise or movement. Took about a hour to build by a joiner, though not hard to do with 2 people and good instructions. Good value for money. I would recommend it , it's one of the best metal frames out there. The local shop had it on display in silver so I knew the quality, it is important to see things before you buy. Online shopping doesn't give you this opportunity. Bensons were great with ordering , in shop , right through to delivery. Very good communication via email and texts. Great customer service. Bed was delivered on time. Very impressed with Bensons

Beautiful bed, absolutely love it. It's very sturdy and easy to put together. Only negative comment is that after we voiced our concerns about getting the bed head board up our awkward stair case - the salesman explained that the delivery men would unwrap and make sure, if not, not to accept delivery and they'll take it back. The delivery men came and said that do not unwrap anything and that he shouldn't have said that. So had it not fitted we would have been left with a huge bed downstairs with no means of taking it back for a refund. Very dishonest sales tactics so be very careful. Luckily it fitted and pleased with our purchase - would have been a 5 star rating otherwise.

The bed looks great. If you take your time, read the instructions properly and don't try to rush things it is not difficult to put it together. It is very sturdy and, due to silicone buffers put on with the washers, there is no creaking. We use the Tempur mattress that we already have and it feels far more comfortable on the sprung slats than it did on the previous solid base. We are really impressed with this purchase and the efficiency of the whole process from viewing in the store to the delivery, can't fault it !!

I had seen this in the showroom, fell in love with it but as I was moving had to wait before purchasing. The sales assistant helped me choose a suitable mattress and yes she was right, the mattress is wonderful, have had this about 6 weeks, no bad back when waking up in morning, really comfortable to sleep on. I liked the fact you could adjust the height of the bed, ideal as I'm only 5' 4. Also plenty of storage underneath too. Due to COVID I had to wait but really was worth waiting for.

We can't believe what good value for money this bed frame is! We previously had a very expensive bed frame from another shop which was pretty rubbish. My partner put this bed together by himself in under an hour, and we're delighted with the quality. It's gorgeous and feels very well made. The delivery was fantastic too, the guys were so kind and helpful. We also video chatted with our local store before purchasing and the guy on the phone was very helpful. Great experience all round!

I had already seen this bed in the Bensons shop before I ordered, none of the other beds I'd looked at had the same feel about them. It also has height settings which is great. It is so solid & very high quality, worth every penny. (I found discount codes online too) It looks a very expensive bed. We bought super king size, easy to assemble & very sturdy. It looks lovely & am sure it will last a very long time. I am happy to recommend this bed.

Really solid, beautiful looking bed. Very pleased with it, good value. It was easy to assemble. Only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because one of the holes was completely out of line for the bolt. It should not have passed a quality control check. I was able to force the bolt in at an angle.

The Harvard Chrome Metal Bed Frame is excellent value for money. It is well built and is very easy to assemble the instructions being very clear. The overall finish and attention to detail is first class. Definitely worth a look if looking for a modern take on a traditional design.

Very stylish looking bed, higher off the ground than our old wooden frame. Overall impressed with appearance. However only 4 stars due to the issue that one of the leg posts was slightly larget than the feet/ cups supplied so we had to hammer it on, denting the foot in the process
