When it comes to towels, we're firm believers that the more the merrier, no matter how many (or few) people you live with. 

There is an array of sizes to choose from; hand towels, smaller towels to act as flannels or to wrap up your hair, bath towels and bath sheets. 

While you may only want to stock up on bath towels or sheets, having the full set can make you feel like your home is your very own hotel suite - and that can lift anyone's mood, especially as we can't travel at the moment. 

When it comes to stocking up on home essentials John Lewis & Partners has you covered, as it has a variety of luxurious cotton towels available to buy now.

Why we rate it

The ANYDAY Basic Light Cotton Towels have not only received glowing reviews, but have got our attention for being both soft and affordable. 

Shoppers claim they are lightweight, quick drying and durable, as they don't lose their shape or colour after washing. 

The towels are made from 100% cotton, and every cotton product purchase supports John Lewis' Better Cotton Initiative, with the aim of backing sustainable cotton farming. 

Shoppers can buy dark steel or white coloured towels, and both colours are available in three sizes, the small hand towel, bath towel and biggest bath sheet. 

Prices range from £2 for the hand towel to £6 for a bath sheet, however, they are selling out fast, as limited sizes are available to buy in the charcoal hue. 

What the reviews say

ANYDAY Basic Light Cotton Towels has received an average of 4.6 out of 5 stars, and has seen over 100 shoppers buy them within the last 24 hours, according to the site. So we wanted to learn what shoppers love most about them:

  • "The colour stays well and they're soft and not harsh at all on my skin. They dry fast and are easy to wash."

  • "These towels are really good. I bought a few sets at the start of lockdown 2020 and they're still fine. Yes they are thin but they dry perfectly, and keep their colour well."

  • "These towels are simply fantastic. I use the steel colour ones as tea towels. I have the full range and every colour, they are such great value for money, they aren't the type of towel you keep wrapped around you after a bath but as a big family these are perfect. I have a large load of towels to be washed and dried and every day and these fit the bill perfectly. They wash and dry with no effort - look great and do keep their colour and softness but still dry you really well. The face clothes in white I use as kitchen cloths, these get boiled washed and again come out looking perfect."

  • "Excellent towels for the price. I bought a big pile of hand towels at the start of lockdown in March, half in white, half in dark steel. They are not thick fluffy luxury towels, but I didn't want those. I wanted towels which wash and dry easily. I change the towels daily, or more than that, and they wash well and keep their colour."
