Very pleased with this; it’s a top quality item which was relatively easy to fit and works exactly as it should.

Tried to buy one locally but no joy. Worried about not seeing it in the flesh but it arrived very quickly and we were delighted with the colour and quality. Completes our new bathroom beautifully.

Quality wooden toilet seat. . Good heavy duty product of exceptionally high quality with easy to understand fitting instructions. Would recommend this product to anyone. Here are the specifications for the Roper Rhodes Solid Wood Soft Close Toilet Seat Walnut by:

Real wood toilet seat in walnut. This is a great item,very well made and packaged. Roper rhodes is a well respected brand,its not cheap but worth the money. Seller also good would use again. Thoroughly recommend this item.

Extremely pleased with this product. Much nicer in walnut as opposed to mahogany in my opinion. It was so easy to install – took all of 10 minutes to remove old seat and put this one on.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Disappointed considering the price
  • May have to adjust fixing posts
  • Disappointing in the long run

The seat itself is very well made, however the reason that i have only given it 3 stars is, 5 strips of wood to make the seat cover, not all the same colour, matching only slightly, the brackets whilst being robust are not the easiest to sort out and fit, follow the instructions carefully . Overall well made and robust, for the price i hope that it stays that way for a long time.

Was worried in case the fittings were. Was worried in case the fittings were not compatible with my loo but it was easy to adjust. Some fitting instructions would have been useful but i worked it out anyway.

Disappointed considering the price. I love the soft-close and colour. However after only a week, there appeared a long chip along the grain which is white and shows the soft-wood underneath.

Much better than the plastic jobs and so easy to fit. Also stays in situ better than the plastics.

Disappointing in the long run. I purchased this item in 2013 and originally was very pleased with the quality. A year or so later i noticed corrosion around the hinges and, as the item specifically states that the hinges are corrosion free, i contacted the supplier who helpfully replaced the hinges. About 18 months on from fitting the new hinges i started to notice that the soft-close feature was becoming weaker all the time and the seat would often clatter down like a normal one. I again approached the supplier for replacements and they contacted the manufacturer but this time there was a firm no and indeed i was told that the hinges were no longer available. That seems odd as the seats are still being widely sold. The seat has a 12 month warranty but in this case i feel that it would be reasonable to expect a far longer life from what is definitely not a cheap product. In summing up i would say buyer beware. The seat looks fine initially but it is probably not going to last as long as you would like. For the price being asked i would suggest that the quality, especially of the hinges, should be far better.

May have to adjust fixing posts. I’d give it 5, but the nylon fixings that make this a top-adjustable seat turned out to be slightly too wide for the holes in our pretty standard shires waverley loo. Not a disaster – my husband managed to shave off a little nylon with a chisel – but i was worried at first that this very good quality seat was going to have to go back.

Panned – in the nicest possible way. Beautiful look and feel to this. Can i say that about a toilet seat?.The top fixing appealed to me but the ‘plugs’ are too wide for the holes. If you have an older toilet pan where you normally fit the seat from below, then you may not be able to use the top fixings. However, all you need for traditional fitting is included and it does still let you screw from the top rather than fiddle below – so all good. Bought from eakers who were extremely helpful.
