We need a queen bed base with drawers. Has to be a split base, or a slat base so we can fit it up the stairs.

The split queen bases with drawers are quite pricey here in Wellington. About $900-1800. I've had a look at this base on the internet and it seems pretty good. Comes to $605 delivered to wellington if I buy it directly via their website (listing #2019).

$605 delivered:
btw: that's not my exact address, it's the apartments down the road :p

Has anyone been into their showroom. Are the beds wobbly and shoddy, or are they OK for the price. Not expecting amazing quality, but I don't want to buy something that's gonna fall apart.

PS. Looking at this mattress which is $1099 (delivered) without the base

Anyone bought any mattresses lately, what did you get?

I'm looking to spend around $1500-2500 all up, for queen with storage.

Ours was custom made by Wellington Beds about 2006. Most comfortable bed ever and still going like new. Cost about $6k I think.

Geektastic: Ours was custom made by Wellington Beds about 2006. Most comfortable bed ever and still going like new. Cost about $6k I think.

+1 for Welllington beds. We had a good look around wellington last year for a new king. Initially, I was a little skeptical that a small manufacturer in Wellington could compete with the bigger makers on quality. However, their sales people were the best informed, the quality of the toppings seemed better than the major brands for similar price (eg, thicker latex, pure wool versus wool synethic mix) and the beds come with a 30 day comfort guarantee.

We bought the soho plus and couldn't be happier. Most comfortable bed I've slept in.

Didn't much like the feel of Wellington beds when I tried them out. I got a sleepyhead from Farmers for the guest room recently, and I have a memory foam mattress with an additional memory foam topper that I love.

We have a solid wood Super King frame and just replaced our aging mattress with a decent Sleepyhead offering from Beds-R-Us (Pukekohe store) near the end of last year. Was a bit prucey, even with the 40% off (would never have paid the RRP anyway!), but with the offer that we could return it if it didn't work out we decided to part with the cash. Have been sleeping well for a little over a month now and loving it. Best sleep I've had in ages actually.

Beds/mattresses vary in design and comfort and what works great for one person will be crap for another. You really have to just go and try them out in store. Look for stores that have options to return/swap of it doesn't work out how you'd hoped. A good night's sleep is (apparently) important, so don't be afraid to pay a bit more to get the best product for you.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.
