Disadvantages: the small print
I have used topps tiles 3 times in the past, and i have to say they have been pretty good. They sell a good range of tiles, and i managed to choose all my tiles for 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens. The tiles are always a good quality, and if you have any over they will take them back for you.
But please note, if you buy any tiles from the very expensive section (normally on a display stand) if you order too many, topps tiles will not take them back. I had this experience and was really mad, as though its on the small print on the recipt they didnt warn me about this when i was ordering them.
Topps tiles are good on price, though i have since found the adhesives, grout etc alot cheaper online.
Topps tiles now offer a delivery service, for free, which is a good idea, as it used to cost me £20 to have the tiles delivered.
They offer also a dvd on how to tile, its free with any purchase, and i have to say get it, as it is brilliant. I'd never tiled before and this cd really was a godsend, and the finish was brilliant.
Ive never had a bad salesman in topps tiles, although they will folllow you around when you walk in, so unless you want the hassle just say your browsing.
They also have a catalogue as you walk in, my advice pick it up, and use it as you walk round, as there are some good pictures inside.
Often topps tiles have most of the tiles in stock, which is good, but even if they dont they can normally get them in for in 2 days.
Overall ive always been impressed with topps tiles, just be careful not to order to many tiles, as they wont always take them back.
Summary: a good place to shop for tiles
