“Rip Off!”

Written on: 14/09/2014

I ordered 2 sofas in the sale which I was told would take 12 weeks to be delivered. If you are the type of person to change your mind DO NOT ORDER FROM LAURA ASHLEY!! When I tried to cancel the order very early on I was told that I would have to pay a quarter of the price, over £400 because the sofas were 'bespoke' and made to my specification. The customer service is appalling and they speak to you like you are nothing. When I asked to speak to a manager I was told that I had reached… Read Full Review

“unspeakably poor qualitity, don't waste your money”

Written on: 06/09/2014 by McClure189 (1 review written)

If you don't like ironing do not buy bedding from Laura Ashley. I unfortunately bought 2 sets, a wash and a wear. What a big mistake. No matter how carefully I wash them, on reduced ironing setting, how much fabric conditioner I use, they always come out of the machine looking like chewed up rags and even, after taking ages ironing them, the creases never really come out. I took them back to the shop and was told there was nothing they could do, that was just the material they were made from… Read Full Review

“Don't Bother with LA”

Written on: 02/09/2014 by Baueryv425 (1 review written)

Good advice really. We bought two sofa's for our living room and were very happy with them. However after the first year the fabric started to discolour from the inside in the form of dark patches. When my wife tried to clean the first one with a damp cloth it just got bigger and bigger and turned a bluey purple. Convinced that it was a fabric fault or something behind the fabric we turned to customer services. Now because the sofa's were over a year old and we had not taken out the extra five… Read Full Review

“Rochester sofa”

Looks stylish but the worst quality cushion fillings thay I have ever had. The care guide says that they must be plumped up weekly. However, this is a complete waste of time as the flatten as soon as I sit on them. I may just as well sit on the frame… Read Full Review

“Duvet cover felt like a crumpled rag after 1 night”

Written on: 03/08/2014 by 1945McCracken (1 review written)

I purchased a very expensive child's duvet cover and pillow case from Laura Ashley. After 1 night on my daughters bed, it was crumpled and soft and looked awful. I decided to wash it to freshen it and found I couldn't iron it smooth again, so it looks even worse. I spoke to customer services who dismissed my concerns by saying it was 100 per cent cotton and all cotton covers did this and they would not give me a refund. I would not shop with them again… Read Full Review

“Not the quality expected”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by Stamfordshopper (1 review written)

I recently bought a poncho style top from LA and kept it to take away on holiday. After wearing it twice I washed it on my return. Despite hand washing it in cold water with Persil liquid recommended for coloured garments, and drying it flat indoors, it looked and felt like a washed out dishcloth once it dried. I took it back to LA where I was begrudgingly allowed to exchange the item after receiving a good dressing down. The shop manager (who didn't speak to me personally but remained out of… Read Full Review

“WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by EllenLa-mer (1 review written)

I arranged for my new bed and matching ottoman to be delivered today. I was given a three hour delivery slot in which my items would arrive and advised that 30 minutes prior to this I would receive a call from the driver. My husband was only ten minutes away, so this would give him plenty of time to get to our house to take receipt of the delivery. Guess what....the 30 minute call didn't materialise and instead I received a voicemail from the Laura Ashley offices to say the driver was outside… Read Full Review

“Wrong order and not willing to compensate”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by Elsie2014 (1 review written)

I was never ever buy any furniture from Laura Ashley again, it has been a total nightmare. First to arrange a delivery date, as every date they couldn't do. Finally when the furniture came the armchair was ill made and had 4 back legs on it! My lovely Beth silver mirror that I ordered was gold! Laura Ashley refused to recognise the mirror was the gold and tried to insist as it was hand made the shades of silver vary. Never again, for pay slot if money for very poor quality and service… Read Full Review

“Poor sofas”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by KingHowell1961 (1 review written)

Ordered Kendal sofa and chair and Linden sofa and they arrived on time , although for some reason they tried to deliver two Linden sofas. Just a few weeks in the sofa cushions were flat and misshapen. I have done everything recommended to reshape but to no avail. in addition the back cushions on the Linden don' t sit together on the back of the sofa, the wooden legs on the rear swivel every time the sofa is moved. The loose cover on the large Kendal is too small? It doesn't zip all the way… Read Full Review

Nannying's Comment

Written on: 29/06/2014

If you have no success please get in touch with a company called furniture reports for an independent report . I sought their advice after having six months of haggling with FIRA and a well known retailer. An independent report was submitted to the retailer and a full refund is to be paid along with refund of the fees paid to the independent company. The furniture is to be returned. Good luck.

“Mortimer sofa”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by DamariCarver309 (1 review written)

We took delivery of a sofa in April, after 4 weeks we noticed what we thought was a small black mark on the front facia, on closer inspection it was a small hole in the fabric. We contacted customer service who sent a technician a few weeks later. The technician said it was impact damage and he doubted that Laura ashely would do anything to repair it as we had not reported it straight away. indeed a few days later customer services said the would do nothing about it as it was impact damage… Read Full Review

“Uncomfortable Sofas!”

Written on: 24/05/2014

We bought two sofas in January. We ordered them with foam infill cushions so that they would keep their shape and not need continuous plumping. We were not shown any foam samples in the shop. They arrived in April and are horribly uncomfortable. They are rock hard and although small styles they feel huge and pumped up. It's like sitting on the big air bed . We felt hurried to buy as it was supposedly the last day of the sale. However, the sale commenced again the next day and is still running… Read Full Review

“Worst Customer Service Ever”

I need a spare part for a LA bed that was purchased from a friend of a friend. As I cant provide a receipt, they will not order me a spare part. I am not expecting the part for free, but they refuse to budge. Most unhelpful, stuck up women who just sound like automated robots… Read Full Review

“Laura Ashley Hastings Daybed”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by YuremO'Neil (1 review written)

The Laura Ashley Hastings daybed was perfect for our spare room. But had only been slept in a few times when the welds holding the legs at one end of the trundle gave way. It was not a heavy person sleeping there! I filed the sharp edges off the frame to make it safe - this apparently invalidated the warranty. And no matter that it broke BEFORE I filed the sharp edges off. Despite the bed being unsuitable for normal usage Laura Ashley customer service would only say that we could buy a new… Read Full Review

“Total Rubbish!!”

Written on: 06/04/2014 by ChristopherMcGraw31 (1 review written)

My elderly mother purchased a chair from Laura Ashley costing £600 assuming it would be of high quality, how wrong could she be! After only 2 weeks the seat cushion had collapsed and she was virtually sitting on the base of the chair, she weighs approximately 9 stone. We called customer services and they insisted on sending their upholsterer out to see the chair, he agreed that the seat cushion was not right and did not recover after it had been sat on. He said he would make a larger… Read Full Review

“Shockingly bad customer service”

Written on: 13/02/2014

Delivery time is twice what was estimated, but sheer incompetence at dealing with my order is what is so shocking. Have phones a number of times, was told different information each time I called. Was actually accused twice of lying, making up what the previous customer service support agent told me because 'that wasnt what she wrote down in the notes' and accused of lying about the delivery time stated in my order - I have it in black and white!! Refusal to put me trough to a supervisor… Read Full Review

“Caution when paying cash”

Written on: 12/02/2014 by Michelle04 (1 review written)

After a long drawn out situation I want to advise other shoppers that if you pay cash for products at Laura Ashley please be mindful that there is a strong possibility that you may not be able to receive a cash refund. This is due to the tills having, as reported by both staff and customer services 'small floats'. Of course Laura Ashley did offer to contact me once they had the cash in their tills, at my inconvenience. Apparently Laura Ashley don't deal with cash frequently so tend not to have… Read Full Review

“Absolutely dreadful service - don't go there”

Written on: 26/01/2014

I ordered some wallpaper online which said it was in stock. Lots of emails were sent to the customer services, but they didnt reply to any. I was then told 10 days for delivery to a local store as they were short staffed at the depot! Really rude, unhelpful and not interested, even though another of their stores had what I wanted, unable to amend the booking. Waited over 2 weeks for the goods to be delived to the store to be able to ask for a refund!! Really really dreadful non existant… Read Full Review

Gg2Bgd's Comment

Written on: 27/01/2014

I totally agree, i had an awful job trying to return a mirror which hadn't even been dispatched! i contacted them to cancel the order as i was buying a different mirror, their customer service team via telephone told me i had to wait until the mirror got to belfast depot and when the delivery company contacted me i was to tell them i wanted to cancel! i said i ordered the mirror with laura ashley not the delivery company. i asked would i get my refund and the customer care agent said to ask the delivery company!! since when do delivery companies issue another store's refund???!!! the girl i spoke to in customer care was ffion, she would not give me a straight answer, hmmed and haaaaed on the phone - what kind of customer care training do they give their staff??!!! and watch out as they try to charge u 20% of the price if u are cancelling. it's a farce. i always loved laura ashley but i could not face the hassle of that. it's nice enough goods but they aren't the be all and end all, they are over priced and you are basically just paying for the name. i can get just as nice items elsewhere and for chaeper and most of all no hassle about returning things if they don't suit. no numerous phonecalls!!!

“Company let down by Customer Services”

Written on: 15/01/2014

Store staff were fantastic, so helpful and great with recommendations and advise. However, having waited for 18 weeks for furniture that was suppose to take 12 weeks, I am left so disappointed. After 12 months the furniture has discolored, every item, I bought the Clifton Range. Looked great, except for the chips that it was delivered with! Now it looks awful and I can not move any item on the furniture as its yellow underneath. Customer services are a disgrace, they fab all emails off, and… Read Full Review
