“wrong colour splash backs”

Written on: 16/10/2014 by McKee208 (1 review written)

Went to Howdens as brother said they are very good. Liked range and had meeting with kitchen designer who measured and planned everything for us. I asked what notice they required to ensure everything ready for fitter; told 1 week to guarantee everything. I gave them 2.5 weeks and fitter still ended up driving several times to Corby for missing bits (still waiting for 4 handles). We went away while kitchen was being fitted, came back to find instead of the olive green splash backs they sent… Read Full Review

I have an account at Bootle and as for the manager you think you get a bargain he gives you the chat and what a slime he is I won't be using howdens again the aftercare service is so bad and when you try to speak to the manager some child says he is not there. I sat outside in my car and phoned and low and behold out comes the man on his phone. Go to BROWN A cheaper and much more trustworthy… Read Full Review

“Excellent Aftersales Service”

Written on: 08/10/2014

We purchased a kitchen from Howdens, Belmont Industrial Estate, Durham. There was a problem with the laminate on the kitchen worktop. This was immediately replaced. I was very impressed with the aftersales service from the Manager and his staff. The Manager went over and above what he needed to do to ensure that the kitchen was to my satisfaction. I would not hesitate to recommend Howdens… Read Full Review

“Profits before Customer Service”

Written on: 08/10/2014 by 447Johnston (1 review written)

I have a Howden’s Tewksbury Oak kitchen around 6 years old and having just completed a house extension, moved the washing machine from the Kitchen and needed to retro-fit a matching cabinet in the 60cm gap. I went into my local Howden’s in Windsor (local to me) and purchased a base cabinet, door and plinth, stating I had a Tewkesbury Oak kitchen. The base cabinet fitted easily but I soon realised that neither the door nor plinth matched the colour of my existing Kitchen. They we're both… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Kitchens fantastic service ”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by Brownefv126 (1 review written)

I have been dealing with my local depot in Worcester for the past 14years, I buy 4-5 kitchens a year. My customers go in chose what they want, get a design done. I arrange delivery, normally with no notice, generally everything turns up, occasionally there maybe 1 or 2 items missing on initial delivery but they normally get it to me the following day. They always let me know if something is missing and when they'll get it to me. I can't recommend them highly enough, the Manageress always sorts… Read Full Review

“Afterwards they suck”

Written on: 03/10/2014 by Cassidyd59 (1 review written)

No complaints about the Oak kitchen we had fitted but the stainless steel splash back for the cooker is staining with what looks like rust. Howdens didn't want to know as it was over 2 years since purchase, not happy at all as it means dismantling the cooker hood to replace. The staff at the Minworth branch were less than helpful… Read Full Review

I had a kitchen fitted 3 years ago. I was assured by the kitchen fitter that Howdens are very good quality units. I had bits and peices falling off for the whole period and I can geniunly say my MFI kitchen was better quality. Never again would I pay that much money… Read Full Review

“simply the best”

Written on: 26/09/2014 by 477Klein (1 review written)

My local builder recommended my local howdens to buy my kitchen. I went into the Torquay depot and the staff politely asked me if they could help. I did not feel pressurised at all. They explained all the kitchens to me and identified the ranges in price order to me which was very helpful as I wanted a mid range kitchen.I booked a survey and then a presentation which was,I feel, very professional. They also showed me around their warehouse and explained that my builder can exchange and buy… Read Full Review

“Avoid Lamona (Howden's own brand) and laminate floors”

Written on: 26/09/2014

Our builder recommended Howdens - he liked the saleswoman and had used them before. Her initial design was limited - unnecessarily cramped and she hadn't always listened to what we'd said. The builder improved it, the fitter (not from Howdens) adapted things and we went ahead. Having read earlier reviews about Lamona (their own brand) appliances, we bought other brands for everything except the tap (spray,mixer,hose type). This seemed good, but needs re-tightening every few months as it works… Read Full Review

“Excellent service great value hard to beat”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by Darnell1963 (1 review written)

Dealt with Howdens Worcester, they designed me a beautiful new, my designer was very knowledgable and helped me through the whole process, have me advise and always did what he said he would. I ordered my kitchen on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday, everyone involved at Howdens Worcester made me feel like nothing was to much trouble, they even gave me an hours notice on day of delivery so I didn't have to stay in all day. My fitter only took a couple of days to install it and it looks… Read Full Review

“Awful Company - Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by David1970 (1 review written)

We had Howdens in to design a kitchen for us. We really liked the range they had and so decided to go with them over b&q etc. Unfortunately they didn't send the quote through, despite chasing them every day for several weeks, and eventually we had to delay the work as we weren't able to source a new kitchen before the workmen were due to start. This is a terrible company and I would recommend anyone to avoid them… Read Full Review

“Lamona Integrated cooker hood”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by MolB (1 review written)

The actual quality of the cupboards etc. is very good. They did make mistakes on the delivery but this was rectified quickly. However, I am very disappointed with the quality of the Lamona cooker hood. Right from the start the door did not run smoothly when opening the hood. The kitchen was fitted in October 2011 and the cooker hood hinges broke in May 2012. This was checked and found not to be the builder's fault. A Lamona engineer came out and fixed it but could not find the original screws… Read Full Review
