Superb Flooring!
"I bought 95m2 of this flooring for the 3 floors of my house. The quality and the colour of the boards are stunning. Everyone who walked into my house since have been really impressed with it. Regarding the laying, floor is very easy to handle. It is a real wood board, so expect variation in colour and length. If not buy a click floor. I only wasted about 2m2 over 95m2 laid! (ok - I was very careful with the cuts! ;o)
Most recommended this wooden floor! and no carpet at last!!

Worst ever purchase
"I realise when buying a natural wood floor that you will have variation in the grain but I was very disappointed with the amount of knotting and dirty looking boards. Also there were an awful lot of small boards in each pack with maybe 1 or 2 long ones. I would not recommend this product to any one and please be aware it looks nothing like the boards on display at B & Q. I noticed from another review that the customer only paid £27 per pack, this probably all it is worth. Unfortunately I paid full price...gutted and very unhappy."

Really good product..... very pleased
"I was slightly worried about buying this after reading some reviews but I have been extremely happy with my purchase. We got 30m2 of it and had no problem laying it, all the wood was very good apart from one piece I think and there was very little wastage. I got this for £27 m2 in the sale and its well worth the money. It looks amazing in my house and I would not hesitate to recommend it."

superb looking, nightmare to lay
"Just floored an area 25 square metres in living/ dining room. Board widths are all varied ranging from 148 to 152mm which makes it very difficult have a perfect looking floor. Unfortunately it means you will have very noticeable gaps up to 4 mm between rows. this can put the whole floor out of alignment. I would not buy again and would not recommend it. However with care and attention to board widths you will have an amazing looking floor. good luck"

Nice floor but variable widths
"Laid this floor in our bedroom and it looks awsome. But as with two of the previous reviewers the widths of the planks do vary so it appears to be a common problem. This does make laying it a major headache."

Poor quality
"I laid this flooring in my hall but there are several issues with this product:
1. The width of the boards is inconsistent. Mine ranged from 147- 151 mm against the specified 150mm. This is really no use at all. Whatever you do there are going to be gaps between the boards.
I managed to select some to be the same width. In other places there was no alternative than to plane some of them down.
2. Some of the boards had a lot of worm holes. OK the ones to the face of the board were mostly filled. But if there are holes you do not know if they are live or not when some time later you come to sand the boards etc.
3.The wood splits very easily. There are visible existing splits in some of the boards, albeit they have been filled. Don't know how long lasting the filler will be though.
4.There are some huge knots with the same filler in them, some not too well done. Other suppliers would categorise this sort of thing as "second grade" or "Rustic" or some such.
I live in an old house, and I wanted the sort of finish that looks like it might be the original boards sanded and refinished. I'm happy enough with the finished job. However if what you want is a perfect "smooth and clean" modern finish with no irregulariities, look elsewhere!"

Dimensions problem
"Having purchased 30 square metres of this 150mm wide oak flooring I experienced numerous problems with variations in widths. I expected the boards to be a standard 150 mm wide however found numerous variations in widths. Variations ranged from boards that measured 147mm, 147.5mm, 148mm, 149mm and the correct size of 150mm. This problem caused repeated complications which resulted in much time being wasted attempting to sort numerous boards into batches of the same width."
