Rated 5 out of 5 by BJ PLEASANT SURPRISE!
Good solid construction and the quality of the wood far outstripped expectations - delivery was prompt, efficient and carried through to the garden - was advised pavement delivery - but the driver was far too nice to leave it for me to carry through! Exceptionally good value, but it did need professionals to construct, which added to the cost. Would recommend this product and will probably buy from this manufacturer again.

This arbour is very well made, and is an excellent addition to my garden. The on-line purchase was simple and quick, I received a phone call almost immediately telling me when the delivery would be made, in a 4-hour time slot. Then I received a reminder text the day before delivery to confirm.
Delivery was on time, the delivery driver was very helpful and polite and the arbour was extremely well packed.
Installation was easily completed by my wife and I in a couple of hours, at the most.
My only quibble is that the screws that hold the two base sections together are the same size as the rest, and I substituted a couple of larger screws for more stability.
The arbour now sits at the sunny end of the garden and is a marvellous place to sit and unwind in the evening sun (sometimes!) with a glass of wine

Rated 4 out of 5 by David K Lovely addition to our garden
This has become a real focal point of the garden with all the family being drawn to it.
It wasn't the easiest thing I have put together though.
Despite being experienced in diy this wasn't straight forward and needed quite a bit of forcing and the instructions were less than clear.
I would recommend that it is put together on a level area of ground.
Although we are a family of 5 with grown children we all
fit comfortably on it.

The product appeared to have been stored outside for a considerable period. The woods were all different colours and there were stripes in various places where the bindings had been applied, lashing items together. These are unlikely to stain out easily.
This is the only flat-packed item I have ever bought that didn't have the parts pre-drilled. This was an unpleasant discovery.
The overall wood finish was rather rough. There will be plenty of opportunities to get splinters off the unit. The whole unit will have to be sandpapered down, and probably painted, as the current finish is unsightly.
On the positive side, the item appears strong and fits well into the space allocated to it
