Slumberland

Slumberland is one of the oldest and most prestigious mattress manufacturers in the UK having first been established in 1919 in Cambridgeshire. To this day, Slumberland remains one of the largest mattress manufacturers, offering an impressive range of products in pocket spring support layers accompanied by numerous upper comfort layers, primarily of foam and latex.

When it comes to price point, Slumberland aims to capture the mid-range price tier while still offering upper range quality. This is evident in the pocket spring support layers offered across the lineup, a support that tops the charts in terms of body contouring and pressure relief.

Hyde-And-Sleep

Still fairly new to the mattress-industry, the Hyde and Sleep brand was the first real attempt from Dreams to get into the popular and saturated bed in a box segment, going head to head with the likes of Simba, Nectar and Otty. The main selling point of the brand is that they are able to offer a market leading sleep solution at a cheaper price than equivalent models in the existing Dreams lineup thanks to reduced logistical issues and reduced delivery costs. Having won multiple industry awards, the Hyde and Sleep range frequently tops charts in comfort and support.

Slumberland Owner Satisfaction

Slumberland mattresses are well reviewed, expected given the brands huge selling power. When it comes to customer feedback, reviews are positive with thousands of reviews and happy customers. People particularly enjoyed the luxurious qualities offered from such a reasonably priced mattress with those customers believing they get very good value for money. Other positives come in the form of the support layer, offering full body contouring and pressure relieving qualities that offer a degree of orthopedic comfort that protects and helps against back pain.

Slumberland Supportiveness

When it comes to supportiveness, Slumberland deals almost exclusively with pocket spring base layers. I bring up pocket springs a lot because they are the true mark of a good quality support structure, they generally perform better in tests than open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Pocket springs offer, on average, better support and better durability, lasting longer than competitors. Slumberland has core parts of their lineup dedicated to orthopedic support which will prove ideal for those looking for additional back and neck support. In terms of firmness, we see a variety of different tensions that will ensure there is something for everyone in the lineup. Recommendations typically see those with back or neck pain navigate toward firmer mattresses, accompanied by back sleepers and heavier weighted people. For those who sleep on their side or are of lower to average weight should perhaps consider a medium tension mattress. With support, it’s all relative and subjective to each person, so consider each mattress on its own individual merit before purchase.

Slumberland Durability

When it comes to durability, Slumberland makes some impressive strides with their lineup. Thanks to the pocket spring support layer you get a better base layer acting as a foundation for everything that sits above. What separates Slumberland from many other manufacturers is that most of the lineup features a 5-10 year guarantee. The guarantee is a testament to the manufacturer's belief in the product they are selling and how long it will typically last. Lots of the industry relies on a 1 year guarantee and helps demonstrate the level of quality offered within Slumberland mattresses. Combine this with the double sided nature of much of the range and you actually get twice the surface area of many competitors, further expanding on longevity and durability.

Slumberland Best Offers

We've managed to find the following top deals from across the web on Slumberland mattresses.

Hyde-And-Sleep Owner Satisfaction

Owner satisfaction within the lineup is good with thousands of reviews over the last few years against the multiple models available. The reviews make particular mention to the impressive levels of support given, with back pain and orthopaedic support being particularly important to customers. Others enjoyed the foam comfort layer and the softer upper with multiple comments from genuine customers who find them “Extremely comfortable. Has made a significant difference to the quality of sleep”.

Hyde-And-Sleep Supportiveness

When it comes to support, Hyde and Sleep have two different support structures, one in the hybrid variety which combines foam and micro springs, and another focussing on pure foam. The tension within these models tends to be firmer than what you get with other manufacturers, with firm to extra-firm being commonplace across the majority of the segment. Customers find the supportive nature of these models ideal for back pain relief with so many comments making mention of the fantastic back support offered.

Hyde-And-Sleep Durability

Durability and longevity are both areas that are key to good quality control. The guarantee offered on Hyde and Sleep mattresses comes in at a lower 1-year guarantee which is smaller than those of competing bed-in-a-box brands and is an area of concern for the brand. Fortunately long-term reviews suggest only minor quality control and settlement issues affecting a small number of customers which should give a reasonable amount of confidence for those that are set on a Hyde and Sleep.

I've only had this mattress about 3 weeks so don't feel I can give 5 stars yet - I may update in 6 months. It has improved in comfort significantly from the first week. The comfort rating is what I would rate it now, not what I would have given if I had reviewed this after the first night. Plus points: - double sided so hopefully it will last longer than my last mattress. Most of the other mattresses available were single sided. - light enough for me to turn and flip on my own (there was no point in it being double-sided if it was too heavy for me to lift). As a middle-aged 5ft2in woman this was the main reason I choose this mattress over others. I recommend going into a store and trying to lift mattresses if this is important to you as a lot of other mattresses were very heavy. - pocket sprung and no memory foam - a plus point if you don't like overheating in the summer. - reasonable price Negative points: - you can't sit on the edge of the mattress - this isn't very important to me, but might be important to others. It's fine for getting into and out of bed, but the edges do not have extra support like some mattresses and sink when you sit on them. - breaking in the mattress to achieve a comfortable sleep took around 2 weeks (although I may be breaking it in for a while yet as I still have some rotating and turning to do). The first few days were very uncomfortable, so much so, that I was regretting my decision. However, I had been warned that mattresses can take a while to break in, and had the 40 day trial to fall back on if necessary, so I persevered. Initially the padding feels very pronounced and solid - more like a very firm mattress than a medium. I also thought I could feel the 'tufts' as small hard lumps. I did not sleep well on it the first couple of nights and had back ache, so I looked up some ways of speeding up the 'breaking in' process. I crawled around on it several times a day and resisted getting a topper (which slows down the breaking in process), although I did sleep on top of a doubled up duvet a couple of times in the first week. I'm happy to say that, 3 weeks on, I'm sleeping well, have no back ache and I'm not noticing the tufts anymore. I don't feel like I would need a topper now and would say the mattress is medium/firm at the moment. The area where I'm sleeping is softer than other areas of the mattress, so I think it probably will be a medium as advertised once it is fully broken in. Overall, I am happy I bought this mattress - just be warned that the breaking-in process means you may be in for some uncomfortable nights to begin with. It wouldn't be suitable if you like to use the edge of your mattress as a place to sit.

Ordered this without reading any reviews, recommendations as there were none. Tried it out in store and it felt firm enough- just what we were after. Firmer as it is still new so time will tell how it ages. Firm is just that, wonder what extra firm feels like! Support is great, the top layer doesn’t have much give. The brilliant thing is that it can be flipped over unlike the hybrid lot. The winter side is definitely warm, the summer side noticeably cooler to the touch so I can’t wait to try it when it gets warmer. This is a plus and for the price I would so far recommend his mattress. Has 2 handles on either side and an 8 year guarantee so what’s not to like? I only hope the guarantee is what it says it is

5 Mark Clifford

Adding this review as Bensons couldn't be bothered to reply, Dear Benson for Beds, Thank you for today's delivery and the initial bed buying in store at Truro. So disappointed today on the arrival of our new mattress and why yourselves would send an £800 mattress in such a poor condition. The plastic covering was covered in a black storage dust, this black dust ends on the stair carpets, walls, landing carpet and bedroom carpets. Your delivery guys said to watch the black dust and to wash hands before handling the mattress itself, so equally disappointed following this advice to then find even more black marks on the mattress itself. This must be an ongoing issue and lets the whole process down?

I Bought this mattress for a vintage bed with oak wooden head and foot. I never thought about the depth of the mattress when I chose it. When it was delivered it was taken upstairs and put on the bed. I was surprised to see that it had come right to the top of the foot board. I removed the plastic covering and made the bed up with sheets and duvet etc, which of course made it even higher. To get into bed I have to take a little leap. But the mattress is very comfy - firm but comfy that was just what I wanted. It has a gorgeous rich fabric cover on it and I would highly recommend. I just wish it had been a little less deep for my bed.

5 Mr Peter Waddington

Very comfortable, good quality, just what we needed to replace our conventional pocket sprung mattress. We liked that on delivery it was vacuum packed which made it easy to move upstairs. Once opened it took a couple of hours to get to its proper shape, and there was a little bit of a chemical smell for a few days, but not overwhelming. This is the 3rd mattress we have bought in 10 years and we have had comfort issues with all of them except this one. We are really pleased with the comfort, quality and the value for money. We would not hesitate to make a recommendation of this product. We love it.

It's been over 6 months since I bought this mattress, and it absolutely changed my life, literally. For my whole life my sleeping quality was very bad, I used to sleep no more than 5-6 hours, I was waking up during the night, I've had a bad back, and was waking up tired every day. I changed my diet, I had a consultation with my GP - nothing helped. I just got used to it, and I thought that's just the way I do, tough. After moving home I decided to buy a new mattress (the one I had before seemed to be good), and I got this one from dreams. The first week or 10 days were weird. I didn't know if maybe I picked the wrong one, or maybe it's faulty, I just couldn't find the right position to sleep etc. But it must of been just my body adjusting to it I guess, because after around a week till now.. OMG. It is insane, it is the best thing I have ever purchased in my life. Literally every day when I wake up, I just can't get over how much I love it. My partner is the same, it's just unbelievable how well we sleep now. I do not wake up in the middle of the night even once, when before I did even 5 times. The quality of my sleep now is absolutely fantastic, I can easily sleep 8-10 hours now, and every morning I feel energised and happy. As much as we all missing going on holiday because of the pandemic, a part of me now is worried that wherever I go now, I will have to sleep on different mattress than mine, and it makes me just tiny bit anxious. I have recommended it to everyone I know and I can recommend it to you all. The mattress is classed as very firm, but you sleep like on the cloud. It adjusts to your body perfectly. We wanted to buy the super king, but the frame we liked was king size, and we were worried it may be to small, but it's absolutely not, even if one person is heavier, then it does not affect the other one, you have your kind of cloud around you and you just perfectly sink in. This is the longest review I ever made, but I felt like I have to, like I owe that to Dreams - thank you. I have never slept better than now.

Having had a medium/firm mattress for the last god-knows-how-many years, and both of us developing bad backs from it, we decided to shop for a new one. After much consideration, we settled on this mattress and WHAT A DIFFERENCE.l! It's much firmer than we're used to, so it did take a few nights to get properly accustomed to it but despite the "very firm" rating, it's very comfortable. I'm normally a very light and broken sleeper, due to how much my partner flops around during the night, how much the bed shakes because of that, and how much of a bad back I develop during the night, and I'm normally up and awake by 5am in a moderate amount of pain, but last night I finally managed a full 7 hours sleep and my lower back pain is almost gone! The memory foam quickly adjusts to a new sleeping position, and it's the perfect amount of softness to cushion you, and firmness to support you. Don't be put off by it being "extra firm", it's nothing like sleeping on hardwood flooring! Both myself and my partner are really tall (6ft and 6ft5), and we have a lot of excess lockdown weight so if anyone's on the larger side, I can fully vouch for this mattress if you're worried about that being a problem. This mattress also stands firm with my partner constantly flopping around during the night - I've barely noticed it these last few nights! One last thing, would be to talk about the design. As a hybrid, we really liked the springs and foam combination. I know springs aren't supportive enough for a larger person, and foam by itself for me is way too soft, but this bed is an absolute dream! The springs are underneath the foam and they're VERY supportive, and the foam is the perfect amount of cushion. An all-round brilliantly supportive mattress and we're super pleased with our purchase, and the service we received!

I went into the Durham Dreams store to select a quality matress for my new built property. Once I told the store lady that my budget was around 700-1000 pounds for a matress, she took me to a section where they had the next generation memory foam mattresses. One matress was firm and the other one was very firm. I tried both and I felt that the firm matress was slightly soft to me. So I selected the very firm one. Mind you, I had been renting previously and all of the matresses that the landlords put in their houses were criminally bad and soft. My back would sink and hurt all the time and it was hard to get deep sleep. Unlike the terrible matresses that I had always slept in previously, these two memory foam matresses felt amazing. But I decided to go with the very firm one to counteract the horrors of sleeping in super soft matresses. The first two nights that I slept on my new very firm matress, I found it too stiff for my back. No surprise! I even thought that I made a wrong decision by picking the very firm option, when I should have selected the firm option. However, the company told me that you must try the matress for at least 30 days as your body adapts to the matress and viceversa. Indeed! Within 3-4 days I was sleeping like a KING! The matress no longer felt crazy firm. It just felt firm and insanely comfortable. Falling asleep became so much easier than ever before but the most amazing thing is that once you catch the deep sleep here, you are stuck in it. Before (when renting), I would wake up easily, and now I can constantly sleep deeply and feel very rested. To conclude, this matress has drastically improved my quality of life.

I spent a long time choosing a mattress, insecure about quality and durability of so many. Have had this Hyde and Sleep Extra Firm Hybrid mattress for two weeks and love it. No chemical odour. It is very firm and has only softened very slightly (Hyde and Sleep Hybrid mattresses are available in a range of firmness, I chose the firmest). Have partially prolapsed discs in my lower spine and this mattress is so comfortable and supportive that I genuinely love lying on it. Both my backache and sleep have improved. It terms of temperature regulation, I find it just right; it holds enough warmth for me to not get chilly, but not enough to overheat (but I am not an overly hot person). It would be nice if it had handles, which it doesn't. Also wish that it wasn't made of plastic, but most mattresses are. Would be good to write another review in a years time to see how the mattress wears, but so far, would say that this is an excellent mattress. I have never paid this much for a mattress before, but on consideration, although I think it a bit expensive, it is much better quality than other mattresses that I have had and I would buy it again. I purchased the Bed Cover Primary Insurance as well, which covers any damage or fault with the mattress for eight years. Dreams have said, that all parts of their mattresses are recyclable, either via them when purchasing a new bed from them, or via the local Council recycling scheme.

5 PainfulKate

I am 37 and suffer with chronic pain conditions including a spinal injury, severe fibromyalgia throughout my body and arthritis in some parts. I knew I wanted a sprung mattress with memory foam, firm support and none of those uncomfortable buttons all over the top and had ordered 2 mattresses online that claimed to have the features I wanted but in real life they didn't do the job so I decided I needed to actually lie on a mattress before spending any money. The tester bed in Dreams Stafford gave a result which completely matched my own perceived requirements for comfort. This Hyde and Sleep Raspberry mattress was on the list of recommendations, within the price I deemed reasonable for my requirements given my disabilities and the inevitable extra time I have to spend in bed. After testing a few others I kept coming back to this one. I am delighted with my purchase, it took a few nights for my body to adjust, having slept on inadequate mattresses for over a year. My back stopped feeling tender in some places and the memory foam is noticeably quicker to return from the shape and weight of my body when I get out of bed. I love it, it is everything I had in my mind that I wanted, the additional guarantee and insurance offered in store was a no brainer. I can thoroughly recommend this mattress if you are looking for firm with no buttons, and especially if you are disabled due to pain in multiple regions of your body.
