Sleepsoul

SleepSoul is one of the newest manufacturers to make a splash in the last few years, entering the arena at the start of the first lockdown and rapidly expanding through its use of existing supply chains provided by its parent company, Birlea. Since inception SleepSoul has rapidly gained a strong market position in the bed in the box space, competing directly with other popular manufacturers like Eve, Simba and Nectar.

SleepSoul are not sold directly and are instead sold through a host of retailers up and down the country in both online and offline capacity where the price of these mid–tier priced products tend to get carved up down to the lowest pound as everyone reaches to capture the sale.

That’s why they utilise 100% recyclable spring systems and natural fibres to help safeguard the environment for future generations.

Sleepsoul Owner Satisfaction

Satisfaction looks to be fairly high with the SleepSoul range, although there are a few exceptions in the lower priced open coil quadrant where they do not perform quite as well as some customers have hoped. The mid and upper tier both perform well however, with pocket spring units shifting large volumes and considerable positive reviews.

Customer reviews are overall positive with people impressed about the price to performance ratio offered through this new bed in a box offering.

Sleepsoul Supportiveness

Supportiveness is at the forefront of SleepSoul design, with pocket spring support structure taking centre position in the lineup and offering a great variety of tensions ranging from medium to firm in their more popular offerings. The open coil variants perform less well however, do feature at a price point making them a great option for those on a budget,

The support layer in much of the range is able to be compacted and rolled, giving you a tighter package come delivery that saves on logistical and delivery costs that can be passed on to you.

Sleepsoul Durability

Durability is a concern that many customers have when it comes to the SleepSoul range and one that cannot be immediately addressed. See, there are no long-standing durability tests because there are no long-standing customers on account of the brand being so very new. As such we just don’t know just how well these mattresses will perform in the years to come.

To offset this concern, SleepSoul has developed a 5-10 year warranty (depending on model) to accompany the purchase of mattresses in the range. This warranty should go a considerable way to alleviating many of the concerns shared by the community and will help establish SleepSoul as a leader in the industry.

Flaxby Owner Satisfaction

Flaxby mattresses are some of the better reviewed in the industry achieving impressive scores on a continual basis that generally outperform the competition. Owners are particularly overjoyed because Flaxby is offering the great comfort and support that we all love but introduce multiple new features that help provide an enhanced sleep experience. Customers particularly enjoyed the all-season range which gave people a deep sleep all year round that kept them cool in summer and warm in winter, the perfect combination.

Customers also enjoyed the natural cotton, wool & hemp fillings that come as standard on many in the lineup with particular attention being drawn to the fantastic 5 year guarantee on most models.

Flaxby Supportiveness

Flaxby mattresses have a great deal of supportiveness thanks to the Cortec™ and DNAir pocket spring systems on offer within the lineup. The Flaxby range is what we consider to be a traditional lineup with typical high quality manufacturing processes that result in luxurious and supportive mattresses. Pocket springs have generally remained unrivaled over the years and are my own personal favourite support layer when it comes to offering good tension for back and neck support. Many of the products on offer are available with multiple tension options which means you have a choice around how firm you would like the product to be. Depending on how you sleep (front, back, side) to how much you weigh are all determinations when choosing the right supportiveness.

Flaxby Durability

Flaxby mattresses will typically perform better in terms of true longevity than many other mattress suppliers due to their large investment in good quality pocket spring support layers combined with tried and tested comfort layers of wool and silk. The combination of these materials gives customers confidence but also the retailer, Dreams. This is evident in their backing of this product lineup with the impressive 5 year guarantee that ensures long standing support in the event of any manufacturing defects. The price point for Flaxby may often price certain people out of the market who are looking for something a little cheaper, however, when you consider the lifespan and the cost per night of sleep as a result, the Flaxby offers a fantastic opportunity for sleepers thanks to its durability and comfort.

This is a really comfortable, good quality mattress. When it arrived (in an amazingly small box), the mattress was well wrapped up in plastic and there was a little tool to slice the plastic open without slicing the mattress, plus instructions for the mattress. It was simple and straightforward and the mattress was ready to sleep on in just an hour or so. There was no obvious chemical smell, just a slight whiff if I put my nose right on it as soon as it came out of the wrapping. I haven't been bothered by any smell when sleeping on it. I bought it as an urgent need because the old one was giving me back pain. After two nights on this mattress, the pain was gone and i've had a couple of weeks of very comfortable nights with much better sleep so far. The only thing i'm not so pleased with is the edges squish down when you sit on them. I guess they have to in order to fit inside the small box but I prefer the edge of a mattress to keep its shape when I sit on it. It's not a major problem as I sleep alone but if I shared it and had to sleep near the edge, i'd feel as if I was going to roll out of bed. I'd want a king size if I was to share it. I will also get a mattress topper just to increase the comfort factor even more (and to fulfil the conditions of the guarantee). Overall, I am very happy with this mattress, it's great to feel comfortable and well supported. With the discount, it's amazing quality for the price. So glad I bought it; my back thanks me every morning.

Easy to manoeuvre on delivery being vacuum packed and boxed. Ordered two mattresses for children moving from cot beds to single beds. Had them out of the packaging for about 6/7 hours before first use which seemed ample. Both kids slept well and said they were comfortable to sleep on. We lay on them after unpacking and they were very comfortable and stable. They feel like they offer the support from the traditional pocket sprung aspect but have the extra comfort with the thin memory foam top without being too thick to get that sinking feeling when youre on thicker foam. Based on experience so far would definitely recommend them for the price. We were hesitant as wanted good mattresses for our children so were originally thinking of going for one of the more major brands. So glad we didnt though, we went based on the amount of such good reviews and these have offered such good value

I bought 2 of these for a 16 year old and a 19 year old and they love them, I normally only buy silent night but the reviews were great so I risked it. I thought there cheap enough to try, well the risk paid off. You won't find better for that price range. Infact you can probably spend double on a silent night and it will still be inferior. I've just ordered a third for my 5 year old his mattress doesn't really need changing but for that price I thought i'd upgrade the little one as well. I hope that sleepsoul keep doing a great job and making top quality affordable mattresses because they're great and i'll be picking a king size up for the wife and myself when ours needs replacing.

We were very careful in our decision to replace our old mattress and took a long time in identifying the right one.The Sleepeezee Memory Comfort 1000 was absolutely the right choice, it was delivered within 24 hours of ordering which considering the time of year (Christmas), was fantastic.It is an extremely comfortable mattress with just the right amount of firmness for us. We have had continuous nights of comfortable sleep with no aches or pains in the mornings anymore.Unlike our old mattress you can't feel your partner turning over which is a bonus.It was an is an absolute bargain, compared to the cost of our old mattress it was 75% less.

5 Verified Buyer

Both of us have bad backs and knew that investing in a better nights sleep. After researching types we settled on pocket coils with memory foam. Best of both worlds!! It's a pleasure getting in to bed every night! Partner and I work day/night shifts and you can't feel when one of us gets in/out which is fab as we don't disturb each other anymore. It's so supportive too! Feel like every part of my body is being supported, literally like floating on air! Truly an amazing mattress, and made in the UK!! Prince Charles recommended LOL Exceeded Expectations, Truely An Investment in your Health and Happiness!! Highly Recommended!!

I did a lot of research to find the right mattress. After a lengthy period hunting, I came across this model within the Flaxby range. It has everything that my partner and I were looking for. We had put up with our previous mattress for far too long so we decided to make an investment. We have not been disappointment at all. Considering that this only comes in either a medium/firm or firm, I was surprised at just how comfortable the medium/firm actually is. We sink into it. The pillow top does help. We've only had the mattress a few nights and know that we are getting the best sleep ever as it is a world famous Harrison Spinks. The mattress is a lot taller than our old one, and I was worried that the sheets wouldn't fit as a result and we would have to by king size sheets, but everything fits perfectly. Oh, aches and pains in my neck have vanished. Suffering with pains when you wake up, then do yourself a favour and get a Flaxby. You will not be disappointed. Hand made is BEST made.

Amazing!! We bought the king size, solid slat bed with a smart 43” LG TV. We assembled the bed ourselves which wasn’t too hard as we were given the instructions on purchase to study before it arrived. It arrived within 6 weeks and the delivery men were so friendly they took everything up to our bedroom for us! The frame itself is very sturdy, barely even wobbles (during activities) we probably could have gone for a better mattress but the one we chose suited budget. The tv takes about 20 seconds to go up and down, comes with a remote to go up and down the remote is even a torch as well! Even the headboard is cosy to sit up and lean against with or without pillows. My only wobble with it is I would have liked the frame to be a bit higher. All in all the best purchase we’ve ever made!

5 J Fraser

The service from the Dreams store in Berryden was great, with sound advice given and all questions answered. I was kept informed about the scheduled delivery and was provided with a 2 hour time slot the day before, which was confirmed with a telephone call from the drivers on the day. They were courteous and ensured that the mattresses were in place and as expected, removing my old ones, and taking all the packaging away too. My only issue, was that the cost of removing and disposing of my old mattresses had risen significantly, taking advantage of the difficulty accessing uplifts by the council. I would definitely buy from Dreams again and have recommended them to friends and family.

I made the purchase of this ottoman storage double divan with aquatic mattress and headboard entirely over the telephone. The sales rep at the Grimsby store was so helpful - I knew I wanted a velvet finish to the bed and he was able to assist me with various pricings, options and colourways. When the bed was delivered, the two gentlemen who assembled it were efficient and friendly and took the time to show me how to access the storage - where to hold when lifting and closing (two separate techniques). I am very happy to recommend Dreams for quality, value and service, from showroom to delivery.

After spending a lot on a previous memory foam mattress that was terrible we had to bite the bullet and go back to a spring mattress - initially this mattress was a shock as it felt so firm. I bought a mattress topper (grudginly)to give it a little softness - its now 3/4 weeks in and im much more used to it. Dreams in york sales service was excellent. The communication about delivery was excellent and the delivery lads were excellent, well mannered and even took their shoes off and i never asked them too. The mattress quality is excellent - i maybe should have got a softer setting
