Rated 1 out of 5 by chilbas Not the quality expected
Where do I start ..... Building it wasn't the easiest of tasks which was not helped by the 'picture' instructions also there were only 2 small pre made holes of no great help which meant parts had to be lined up correctly first before the surround could be screwed together / assembled. I would also recommend you have a drill handy as the MDF will split if you are just screwing into the surround without making holes beforehand a detail only mentioned on the separate instruction sheet for the wall fixing plates. I would have preferred it if it came with internal concealed hook as the plates supplied are unsightly on the out side of the fire surround. The fire surround, well, after completing the assembly and fitting everything in it's place I stood back to view and admire the effect it had on the room in place of the old surround. Oh Dear! 'In the cold light of day ' I realised that the advertised colour of the Surround which states is Cream, has sides that might well be, but the Mantle section is a shade of very very pale Green / Grey / Cream, an unfortunate fact not realised until this moment in time. The fire itself works well but the glow effect is a yellowish colour and it does not flicker, perhaps a bulb colour change to red would help but as yet I have not discovered how to do this. I shall be contacting Homebase Head Office with these concerns.

The look of the product is fine but the fire is horrenously noisy - it's like having an industrial fan in the room - and the fire effect is a yellowish colour and it does not flicker.

It was quite difficult to assemble because alot of the pre made holes were in the wrong place. Also some of the parts didn't line up properly.

I had someone to install the fireplace so can not comment on the ease it can be assembled.
However the finished product looks lovely. It is very good value for the price.
The only thing I can fault are the two fixings near the top and to the side which do not fit in very well with the colour of the fireplace. They could have been made to fit in better.

Overall I am satisfied with this fireplace suite. Building it wasn't the easiest of tasks which was not helped by the poor instructions. Also i recommend you have a drill handy as the MDF will split if you are just screwing into the surround without making holes before.
I would give it 4 stars if it came with internal concealed hook as the hocks supplied are unsightly on the out side of the fire surround.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie Lovely product, looks expensive
Love this fireplace suite!! Looks great and more expensive than what it is! Bit tricky to assemble, instructions are a bit useless however with a bit of persistence I got it up and it looks fab!
