Although the centenary books were of a reasonable quality and went down well as Christmas gifts, my experience wasn't great. Having ordered 2 books, only 1 was dispatched and I had to chase the 2nd one. No explanation offered as to what had happened .Although this issue was resolved, when ordering online the ability to execute an order and get it right first time is just as important as the product.
Cannot fault the service overall. They had to redo the book as there was a defect but customer service were so easy to contact and they resolved the issue in a few hours. Agree with some others, it would be nice to have a tracking code for Royal Mail but received an email telling me my book is on the way so I knew roughly to expect it in a few days. Overall can't fault the service.
