disappointed.. I was just about to spend nearly £4000 with them.. After looking at the reviews above.. Think I'll give them a wide beth.. Apparently it was family owned then read it was sold to foreign company.

Purchased two of the Vermont sofa's and two chairs. We have had them for 12 months and they have worn very well. No complaints.

I am not happy with this company as I bought which I thought was a lovely sofa, but the cushions and seating move forward all the time and I wrote them a letter and they didn't even acknowledge it??? I had a contractor out to look at it and he suggested a few things, but they wouldn't agree to it. I even offered to pay for the scattered cushion to be changed to the classic, but to no avail. I am totally demented as I have to move the cushions back into place at least 3 or 4 times a day. They said all I had to do was flip the base cushion once a day???? I have never had this with any of my previous sofas?????

Really disappointed with the quality of our new sofas. They do look good, unfortunately that's where it ends. They are squeaky at the joints, the fabric is just 6 months old & looks worse for wear, the seat cushions are apparently guaranteed for 10 years, ours is 6 month old and already misshapen, they are cheaper than a quality sofa (eg. Duresta) but works out expensive for rubbish we'll have to replace after just 12 months!

We bought a suite from Alston's due to their reputation. The suite had 4 separate faults which took months to rectify. A letter of complaint was sent to Alston's which received a very curt and unhelpful reply. We then wrote to the Managing Director who didn't bother to reply. Steer clear if to want to avoid a lot of grief and disappointment. They clearly no longer care about their reputation and good customer service.
