Dunlopillo

Dunlopillo have been in the mattress “game” for nearly a century, dating back to 1929 when a scientist created what we know today as Dunlopillo Latex. The latex would form the backbone of all future mattresses and a staple of the industry as a whole.

The company has since gone under new ownership and sees itself as part of the Relyon group where it enjoys an enviable position as one of the market leaders in latex mattresses around the UK and worldwide. If you are looking for a mattress that possesses many of the qualities of memory foam without the downsides of heat build up, latex could be for you.

Dormeo

Dormeo first popped up on our radar back in the early 2000’s, finding different avenues to market than traditional with their frequent TV advertising and push toward their own independent store over the conventional retailer derived market. Selling typically mid to high range products there are a few things that stand out with the Dormeo offering that competitors lag behind on, namely split tension and the way customers can adjust the firmness of their mattresses themselves via included replacement pads.

Regardless of your budget, there’s likely to be something suitable for a reasonable price point.

Dunlopillo Owner Satisfaction

Dunlopillo ranks highly on consumer satisfaction with numerous good and well-reviewed products across the entire lineup. Many consumers comment on how their Dunlopillo mattresses far exceed the average, with some lasting for over 20 years. In fact, with consumers happy with the comfort and tension of the mattress, the only real complaint is around the lack of turning handles on particular models. This does create a minor inconvenience when it comes to rotations but does help highlight just how impressive the lineup is when the largest vocal problem is around handles.

When you consider the life expectancy of a Dunlopillo mattress on average and look at the cost per night of sleep as a result, the entire range makes for incredible value for money.

Dunlopillo Supportiveness

Customers are largely happy with the support offered by these mattresses. Featuring a wide array of tensions from soft through to firm it means that there is always a Dunlopillo mattress suitable for you, regardless of body type and sleeping preference. The tension and supportiveness of these mattresses is offset by the top layer of the product being latex, which will offer a degree of softness and comfort within the upper layer of the mattress, helping to create a unique experience with the support layer below.

Dunlopillo mattresses also feature an impressive amount of edge support which allows you to make full use of the product. Many cheaper brands do not have this feature which means you do not have the confidence while sleeping close to the edge of the mattress where it feels like it would otherwise be “giving way”

Dunlopillo Durability

As mentioned within customer satisfaction, there are people still sleeping on a Dunlopillo mattress 20 years later. That alone tells you all you need to know about durability. Handcrafted within the UK and featuring hypoallergenic materials with a rugged yet soft cover, these mattresses are durable and well reviewed.

Dunlopillo mattresses tend to be a little more expensive than competing products but the latex upper layer brings a unique feature that many other brands have failed to emulate. Personally, we find the latex to be long lasting and have many benefits over competing memory foam products.

Dormeo Owner Satisfaction

Satisfaction among customers appears to be high for Dormeo mattresses. This is unsurprising given the high quality materials and primary materials of latex, memory foam and pocket springs. Customers particularly enjoy the different firmness levels offered within each purchase. Where conventionally you would purchase a mattress and be left with the firmness chosen, Dormeo have gone a step further and developed removable pads that adjust the tension to a suitable level which, being a common complaint otherwise, assures satisfaction.

Customer reviews for Dormeo mattresses are fairly impressive and with impressive market leading warranties this trend looks set to continue.

Dormeo Supportiveness

Support is something very unique to Dormeo due to its split tension dual core mattresses. This specialist lineup allows you to have multiple tensions within one mattress, simply flip over to achieve a different degree of support and comfort.

Traditionally we judge a mattress manufacturer's support by the layer denoted to it and in the case of Dormeo this looks to be primarily pocket springs as a base layer. Pocket springs are market leading and outperform equivalent open coil and reflex foam units, they achieve this by having better body contouring, less settlement issues and better durability.

Dormeo Durability

Much of the Dormeo lineup comes with anything from 10 year to 20 year warranties. Regardless of which mattress you choose and which of the warranties you receive, it will still be toward the absolute top percentile in terms of warranty coverage. This is important because without a warranty you will be unprotected in the years that follow and since the average mattress is replaced after 7 years, a 10-20 year warranty goes a fairly long way in determining the expected above-and-beyond lifespan of such a product. Combine the great warranty with market-leading support and comfort layers and you are left with an extremely durable mattress that will provide you with a great night's sleep for a decade to come.

I first had a new Dunlopillo mattress (bed) in 1984 and I slept comfortably everafter. I reluctantly had to get rid in 1912 as i was downsizing and moving many miles down south taking only the two single beds in my spare room , which had nothing wrong with them but not as comfortable as I thought. I decided to return to what I knew and I'm so glad I did, my new mattress is heavenly!

5 Christine

Just purchased two of these pillows because of the latex filling. The pillows are soft yet also support your head. I slept all night because of these pillows and had no stiffness or aches and pains the next morning. They really are fabulous and worth every penny. They keep their shape and will last for years if looked after. I love them.

5 Lottie Milla

The best pillow. Had the original pillow for 5 years and have now bought side sleeper. easy to wash, great quality pillow protector and would never use anything else. May be a pricey item, but seems to be indestructible, and when you think how much you spend on mid-quality pillows that need to be replaced annually, the cost makes sense.

4 Alex

Echo what everyone else says. You're head melts in to it and it kind of gently springs back offering comfort and support . Had mine nearly 12 months and it's as good as the day I got it. Highly recommend for people who have aches or pains or just struggle with pillows and getting comfortable in general.

5 Verified Buyer

I would have to say this must be the best mattress I've ever slept on. Had it a while now and don't regret in the slightest. Expensive but in this case you definitely get what you pay for.Quality is spot on too, feels like it will last forever.

At the beginning of 2020 my husband and I decided to retire our mattress and splurge on a new one. Three mattresses later (all of which caused aggravation and discomfort to an existing lower back issue that I have) and four months later, we trepidatiously bought a dormeo mattress, but prayed it would alleviate the issues I was having...... our prayers were answered! The mattress we purchased is a hybrid, with spring coils and a memory foam top; it is not too soft and not too firm, which is perfect for my lower back pain. Unlike the initial memory foam mattress, I actually sink into this one rather than just laying on top. It is easy and light enough to turn, asper the instructions, and the size is true to size standards; all of my original king sized sheets fit this mattress perfectly. Sorry for the long spiel, I'm just extremely happy with this mattress and my back is very thankful also.

5 Jonathan

I am very pleased with this mattress. It took some getting used to. Having slept on it for 3 months now, I can feel a difference in my back. The support it provides is excellent. It is unfortunate that I couldn't try the mattress before buying, but based on the description from Dormeo, I went for it. This mattress feels as good as other well known and more expensive memory foam mattresses. One negative is that there are no handles on the sides of the mattress to enable rotating it. So it is difficult to hold it to rotate. It comes rolled up, and then you open it and roll it out. But if I had any reason to return it, i don't believe i would ever be able to fit it down the stairs again. Fortunately that is not necessary for me, but worth considering before buying.

We purchased the soft/medium mattress and it is so comfortable. I suffer from back and joint pain and found it a real struggle getting comfortable at night and getting out of bed in the morning...we had a silentnight “orthopaedic” mattress it very uncomfortable and was anything but silent. It took a couple of weeks to get used to our new Dormeo mattress but we are so glad we invested in it. No more backache!!! We also purchased the memory foam pillows, again they are extremely comfortable but are not a standard size pillow which is a pain when trying to find pillowcases that fit. The only thing I can complain about is the heat that is generated from the mattress. I would highly recommend purchasing from Dormeo plus you can spread the cost over 3 months

Ordered this at the begging of May and received it within the last couple of weeks (been a delay due to coronovirus issues). The mattress has taken a couple of weeks to get used as took time to work out which side/firmness/ support suited me. Comfortable mattress, arrived in perfect condition. My only thing I would like to mention is that this mattress appears better suited for a couple Sharing a bed (obviously), as a single person it has taken a bit of time to break in and can sometimes be a little uncomfortable as I am using it alone. Neither the less a great comfortable mattress but feel it is better suited to a couple who will sleep on both sides, little more difficult to get comfortable as a single person sleeping in the middle.
