“Rubbish”

Written on: 22/04/2016 by Shona3456 (1 review written)

Bought a soft from here thinking it would be of better quality that going to one of the well known sofa companies. How wrong could I be, after 3 weeks the sofa could easily be mistaken for being 3 years old. Fabric has gone all patchy. Called them out to it and supposedly that is the nature of the fabric. Will never ever buy from here again!… Read Full Review

“Awful customer service”

Written on: 17/04/2016 by Princeh13 (1 review written)

Thanks House of Fraser for looking after your customers so well! I could have use the weekend to buy a new dress when my husband could have looked after our daughter, but no instead I was waiting for a delivery that you knew will never arrive! And you apologise offering a 10 pound voucher! What makes you think I want to shop with you again! I ordered a couple of dresses on-line. The delivery company HERMES attempt to deliver on a Wednesday and Thursday, leaving a blank delivery slip on both… Read Full Review

House of Fraser use the cheapest delivery service possible which appears to be self employed couriers. They also use very cheap cardboard boxes that disintegrate in the rain. After chasing one of my parcels I had a woman in filthy car wearing pyjamas turn up and throw my parcel at me. Not good when a lot of the items they sell are high value.

“Terrible customer service”

Written on: 22/03/2016 by DennisPenn294 (1 review written)

I ordered a dress for a Christmas party in early December. Never received it. however, on the website of the delivery company, it said the order was delivered WITHOUT signature! i reported it the HOF, but didn't get the money back until 2 months later. I order a suitcase online on 16 march, paid delivery charge for my order to be delivered to a local shop on 18 march, even my order was over £130. The suitcase is for my trip overseas. A staff called me on 17th said that the suitcase was too… Read Full Review

“Ill informed and rude staff”

Written on: 07/03/2016 by Gallagher222 (1 review written)

We attended store at Birmingham to purchase some birthday clothes for our 2 year old. We were particularly after a Hugo boss outfit. staff were rude to begin with telling us, literally, to go away and not disturb their chat. On further pursuing that outfit the rather ill informed staff supposedly checked online and couldn't find the product. It was blatant she was not even looking as the product was obviously there when we checked after getting home. If they can not teach staff any manner or… Read Full Review

“Disappointed with customer service flooring dept”

Written on: 02/03/2016 by Aylina228 (1 review written)

After purchasing wood floor covering for a large area, the dept forgot to order the beading so had to pay the contractor up front for him to purchase himself, then they ordered the wrong colour for the little cloakroom after saying they hadn't, after that we were left with 4 packs we didn't need due to survey error. Went back to the shop to get a refund for the £200 payed to the contractor, then to be asked if we brought the remaining flooring with us, Er no they weigh a ton, then had the… Read Full Review

“Don't purchase gift vouchers from House of Fraser”

Written on: 22/02/2016 by OssieandWendy (1 review written)

Having bought my wife £150 worth of HoF vouchers one Christmas they were subsequently put in a "safe" place and forgotten. Upon rediscovering them, we went to spend them, only to be told by the store that they were out of date! I hadn't realised they had an expiry date when i bought them, and actually never even considered it, i just thought they were an exchange for money and would always be worth their face value. HoF insisted they were worthless and refused to accept them. The customer… Read Full Review

“Never ever again”

Written on: 08/02/2016 by Dissatisfied777 (1 review written)

I would advise anyone never to shop on line outside of the UK. There is no support outside of there. I ordered 2 dresses and had to return them - I got proof of delivery to the address I was instructed to send to in Australia. They then claimed it had gone missing...... from Australia to UK. It me over 3 months to have my money refunded and only because I contacted Paypal. Unfortunately due to the length of time the exchange rate had changed and I received over $20 less than what I paid -… Read Full Review

“House of Fraser Lacks any kind of customer service”

Written on: 01/02/2016 by Meyerww208 (1 review written)

Have had the same problem when trying to exchange gloves bought as a gift at Christmas. Got Lorraine on live chat today who was not one bit interested in the circumstances. I have been a customer for many years and will not be returning. In fact I asked that my name be removed from their mailing list and account closed she did it without hesitation, remarkable customer service indeed!!! End of an era for me but there is plenty of choice out there!!!… Read Full Review

“Returns”

Written on: 21/01/2016

I ordered a pair of Levi 501 on 9/12 for a Christmas present for my husband, foolishly without reading the small print. We went away for Christmas & didn't return home until the New Year. The jeans didn't fit so I returned them in early January. Approx 2 weeks later I received an 'e voucher' as I didn't return the item within 14 days. When I phoned them to ask if they could refund £63.99 back onto my PayPal account as I have never shopped in House of Fraser until this time & probably not… Read Full Review

“Expired gift card - beware of the small print”

Written on: 18/01/2016 by Jefferyw499 (1 review written)

Due to a long term illness I was unable to use my gift card. At a recent visit to HOF I was advised that the gift card had expired (2 years from last top up) and I had lost the sums on the card; some £450. Despite explaining my circumstances to their customer services they refuse to recharge my card with the sums and have essentially pocketed my money. Beware that the small print on the gift card does set out these terms and they will not budge… Read Full Review

“Terrible customer service”

Written on: 05/01/2016 by Cabbie61 (1 review written)

I bought an early Xmas gift mid October of a ted baker purse for my daughter as I am organised with my Xmas shopping but little did I know the trouble it would cause! I told the assistant at the time it was an Xmas gift n I was unsure of the colour but the assistant just issued me with a gift receipt n no warnings! Had she had done her job I wouldn't have bought it! My daughter had since tried to exchange it for a different colour to no avail, all she had been told is that they can do nothing… Read Full Review

Lu62's Response to Cabbie61's Review

Written on: 13/01/2016

I bought a purse online for my daughter at the end of November and returned it 2 days after Christmas, as it was too big for her bag. I have just received an evoucher, which is not what I expected.
I've been told that goods have to be returned within 14 days of receipt for a refund to ones account.
What a rubbish service. I'll stick to tried and tested stores such as John Lewis in the future, their returns policy is wonderful and allows you to buy with confidence and return goods for a full refund if not suitable, within a 90day period.

Yes exactly me too! At the same time I also bought items for Xmas presents from Marks n Debenhams and on their gift receipts it was printed could be returned up to 16/1/16 which is excellent! In fact I have taken one of these gifts back bought the same day as the purse in H of F n got a full refund no problems!

“shocking customer service”

Written on: 28/12/2015 by MareliPrice (1 review written)

Had an unsuitable Christmas present bought, took it back, didn't have the receipt but thought as a gesture of goodwill they would exchange or issue a credit note,it was a beauty item, but sealed and obviously unopened and had exclusively for house of fraser on a sticker and price sticker underneath, so no doubt it was theirs. Would not have it back and made excuses, first not without a receipt and then cause it was beauty so had to bring it back home and the woman had the cheek to say it will… Read Full Review

“Returns Scam”

Written on: 20/11/2015 by Gajinder (1 review written)

I bought 2 suits from them online. One was damaged with an big scrub mark which I almost missed. The second did not fit. I returned them on time and they promptly sent them back telling me they were not returned "in the same condition as shipped"! What could I have done to them in two days? I took the suits to their Westfield store and showed them to the deputy sales manager. He told me these suits were never worn! I told House of Fraser what he told me but they are still not prepared to… Read Full Review

I have been trying to return a parcel past the 28 day policy, delayed because of exceptional circumstances. I receive the same standard reply time and time again from online customer services. So I tried the director. Who must have sent it back to the standard online service for another bog standard reply. Stuck with £300 worth of goods. Will never buy from them again… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/10/2015

I saw a lovely silver dress in the online sale, it got a good review about NOT creasing, so I made the purchase. It arrived looking like a wrapped football. On the skirt it had 4 stains BUT under the arms 'sweat stains'. THEY HAD SENT ME A DRESS SONEONE ELSE HAD BEEN WEARING AND HAD RETURNED IN A FILTHY MESS. Customer care said sorry but was told they were concerned about their reputation and offered a £10 evoucher, NO thanks!! I sent the dress back in the same packing to a Director.
