Why our sleep experts loved it

The Penelope Upholstered Bed Frame is a high-quality and stylish option for those looking for a comfortable and luxurious bed. The deep buttoned fabric finish and scrolled head and foot board give it a sumptuous look which looks far more expensive than it actually is. The premium velvet fabric and wooden walnut effect feet are both particularly nice touches that add a good degree of elegance to a modern or traditional room. Fortunately for consumers, there are a few different colour options that can satisfy different room designs to match different decor. Another neat feature that customers may appreciate is the sprung slats, adding an additional degree of bounce into your mattress while promoting good breathability.

Customers have had overwhelmingly positive experiences with the Penelope bed with many nothing the excellent quality and lack of creaking, as well as the comfort provided by the bed when coupled with a great mattress. The product is also available in many of the 300+ Bensons for Beds stores with reviewers happy with the friendly staff available to answer questions and help narrow down the selection. Delivery too, has been regarded as efficient, with the bed arriving for reviewers on the day promised and in the time slot allocated.

Some customers have pointed out that the size of the bed frame may not be as tight on tolerances as it should be, with some unhappy that the mattress does not fit perfectly without some minor gaps. A few have mentioned damage to the bed frame upon delivery too, although these issues seem to be the exception rather than the rule.

Overall, the Penelope Upholstered Bed Frame is a great option for those looking for a comfortable, stylish, and high-quality bed. The luxurious look and feel, combined with the comfort provided by the sprung slats, make it a great choice. The 5 year guarantee and excellent customer service are added bonuses.

The bed looks very elegant and sturdy, with a straightforward process to assemble the bed. However, when it came to putting the wooden slats all across the frame, the plastic caps were a nightmare to push into the metal frame. Looking at the reviews, I'm the only one who seems to have this problem. The plastic side caps were okay-ish to push into the frame (to secure the slat) but still required some level of strength, but the centre caps were a nightmare and required every ounce of your body weight (and a hammer) to push into the metal frame. This was the only struggle of the build process, the final product looks great.

Ordered my penelope bed online, the process was so easy, was very impressed how my bed was delivered within a few days, I was expecting it to take a few weeks, the guys who delivered my bed were really lovely, they rang me to let know when they would arrive, they covered their shoes so they didn't mark my carpet, and took my bed to the room requested, everything was very professional from start to finish, will highly recommend. If anything negative is the bed looks darker in the picture as its more royal blue.

Lovely bed. Very sturdy and easy to put together. I assembled it myself. Such a nice bed so much so my cat is banned from the bedroom so he doesn't decide to use it as a scratch post. Had to wait a good few weeks for delivery but that was down to the troubles in the Red Sea so nothing to be done about that. Bit disappointed that I found after I purchased it and paid full price that it is now reduced in price but hey hi that's life.

Excellent selection in the showroom, and plenty of staff on hand to answer questions. We were served by Megan who was very helpful and helped us narrow down our selection. Delivery was also very efficient, and the bed arrived on the day promised, and in the time slot allocated. The bed itself is well made and a little luxurious and looks great in its new home. Very satisfied all in all and would recommend.

So comfy, really good quality, easy to put together, the fabric is like butter and the size is perfect for my husband and I and our two big dogs when they sneak on in the night! Did have a slight issue getting it through the door (measured the room - forgot the front door!) but the 2 men who delivered were really helpful and accommodating - couldn't fault them.

The bed is comfortable and of good quality. The mattress (King size) is lightly small than the bed frame (King size). The size of the bed frame need to be adjusted slightly so that the mattress can fit in perfectly without gaps between the bed frame and the mattress.

The bed was a completely different shade of grey than advertised - it was a lot lighter. However, we are still really pleased with it. Very straight forward to put together and looks great.
