Therapur

Therapur mattresses have been around for a number of years now as a staple of the Dreams retailers core lineup. Sold exclusively through the retailer, this brand sits at the mid-high end range and commonly features high quality pocket springs as a base layer with gel often accompanying the comfort layer. Ideal for those that want to be kept cool while they sleep, this range of mattresses has plenty of long term reviews and are frequently praised for their high quality.

Therapur has a vast array of different mattresses in different tensions helping to ensure that there is something for everyone regardless of how you sleep and your own preference.

Simba

Simba have been around for a long time originally founding in 1979, however, they have only been in the bed-in-a-box industry a few years at this point. Simba started its journey with one mattress before branching out to encompass an entire range. These aren’t just any mattresses though, and they have been tested using data from ten million sleepers’ body profiles and over 100 prototypes to help ensure that the mattress and its design will suit the vast majority of sleepers. To date the Simba lineup has become one of the most well-reviewed mattresses worldwide and with the new line-up, there's different models to suit different budgets.

Simba has an entire lineup dedicated to bed in box rolled mattresses. This avenue to market has become increasingly popular in recent years and has numerous benefits, namely that the cost of the product is typically lower due to savings within logistics warehousing and delivery.

Therapur Owner Satisfaction

You’ll be in good hands with Therapur, having over 12,000 positive reviews to date and with many more flowing in each day, it’s easy to see that many customers appreciate the quality and cost make-up of these mattresses. Customers particularly enjoy the gel comfort layer, something you don’t often get elsewhere. This gel layer keeps you cool while you sleep and is an ideal barrier that sits between the springs and your body to give you a refreshing and soft nights sleep that is suitable all-season long.

Unlike memory foam varieties, there are no substantive reports of people waking up through heat build up and night-sweats although there have been some complaints around getting the right tension. Fortunately the Therapur umbrella of products all come with a 40-night sleep guarantee which ensures customer satisfaction or replacement for a more suitable model.

Therapur Durability

Durability remains impressive for the Therapur line up, however, we were disappointed with the 1 year guarantee often quoted on many of the mattresses, particularly given the non-budget price tag associated with the products. That said, many settlement and durability issues that do crop up with all mattresses are often due to a manufacturing defect which will typically appear within that first year of ownership. As such, the one year guarantee, while not ideal, doesn’t seem to be causing anyone to be “caught out”.

Beyond the guarantee, durability itself seems to be good provided manufacturer care instructions are adhered to in the form of frequent rotation to ensure adequate and even settlement of fillings and springs. Failure to comply with the rotation guidelines for Therapur products can result in uneven settlement which is best avoided.

Generally, Therapur mattresses are hard wearing and durable with the combination of good quality pocket springs, hard wearing cover and gel comfort layer pairing fantastically to offer ultimate comfort that lasts.

Therapur Best Offers

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

Simba Owner Satisfaction

Satisfaction for Simba is high on their priority list, offering an impressive comfort guarantee which means that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you are able to organise a return for a full refund. The return process is one of the easiest we have come across and involves letting the company know and they will arrange collection at a time convenient to you. Additionally, there are no additional surcharges, costs or delivery fees associated with the returns process which means you get 200 nights risk free to try the mattress.

After this trial period you will also receive a market leading 10 year guarantee that will further instill confidence and ensure your investment is protected long term.

Simba Supportiveness

Simba have multiple mattresses in their range, however all offer roughly the same level of supportiveness coming in at a medium firm tension. The comfort that you derive from a mattress will generally come from the top layer that sits somewhat detached from the support layer. The support layer is what contours and fights against your body to give you pressure relief. Depending on how you sleep or how much you weigh are both factors in determining suitability of tension. With the medium firm support of the Simba lineup we find them most suitable for back sleepers and those of average or heavier build. That said, due to the inclusivity that Simba has aimed to achieve through its prototypes and extensive testing, we do have plenty of reports of side sleepers and those who are lighter getting maximum comfort out of the lineup.

Simba Durability

People are increasingly expecting more from their mattresses with more comfort and more support on offer than ever before. It’s actually a really great time to buy a new mattress as companies new and old are changing the way they do business and produce mattresses with improvements and savings along the way. The same has become true for durability and while the average lifespan of a mattress before being replaced currently lies at around 7 years, the Simba goes above and beyond with a guarantee covering a full 10 years. The result of mattresses lasting longer is the cost of sleep actually decreases relative to cost and time meaning products like Simba may be cheaper in the long run due to that enhanced and increased durability.

Let me start by saying that since my first night of sleep on Sat 8 October 2016 with my new bed from Dreams I have slept well and woken fresh ready for the day ahead. However the whole experience started the week before when I stepped into the Dreams store at Colne Valley Retail Park in Watford. I had just moved into the area and was saying with my son's familiy until I moved into my own flat on 8 Oct. I was out shopping for a new bed and was accompanied by my grandson and daughter in law. We were made welcome as soon as we approached the store. A local radio station together with an England international rugby player was at the store. My grandson won a Dreams bear and played some computer games before meeting the international and having a picture taken with him; a great keepsake. This allowed me plenty of time to choose the right bed. I was impressed by the knowledge of the assistant and at no time was there even a hint of pushiness or oversell. My final selection was to plum for the Rapport Acti D Matress with a two draw base. This mattress and base was in stock, this was a stipulation because I needed it delivering to my new flat on 8 Oct. I was told there would be a delivery charge which included assembling the bed and removing any waste (great, saves me the job). I gave my address and then I received the first negative of the day. "Sorry the delivery van is full we cannot deliver to you next Saturday". What! it's midday the week before and you cannot deliver. I felt like walking straight out. People work and Saturday is the most convenient time for most people to take a delivery of such a large item. How many other customers would be told the same thing and how many sales would they loose. With a full week to go surely they could hire another van in. At £45 per delivery, would it cost that much? It was at that point that I had an idea. I could pop over to High Wycombe to pick up the bed from the Dreams warehouse with my hire van before I started moving to my flat. It would set me back an hour or so but at least I would have my bed on the first night and I saved the £45. On the 8 Oct my son and I set off for for the warehouse in good time to arrive as it opened, which would give us good start for the moving day. We were met by a nice chap who took my invoice and asked us to back the van up to the doors. A short time later he returned and asked if we were only there for the mattress as they did not have the two draw base. What! no I said we are here for both and they should both in in stock. With all that had to be done that day, this was not what I wanted to hear. He was away for about 30 minutes before returning with a smile ... he had found it. Ummm strange I though to myself. The move went well and towards the end of the day it was time to assemble my bed. Everything was straight forward until I tried to open one of the base draws. I eventually managed to open it only to find that the right hand side runners were damaged. I left the draw out of the base and would ring up about it on the Monday. It may be me being a little cynical but did the warehouse know it was faulty. I made up the bed and despite all the hassle of the day, I had a great nights sleep. I slept like a log, the bed felt fantastic. I informed Dreams about the defective draw runners and whilst I could of insisted on a new base unit, I just asked them to send out a new set of runners. They were sent out quite quickly and it only took me 10 minutes to change the runners over. Everything is now spot on. So that's my experience from start to finish. I need another bed for the second bedroom, would I go back to Dreams? well yes I would. The mattress is great and providing they can do me a good deal, deliver on time and rectify any faults within a reasonable time, why not. The positive to come out of this is that I do have a good product and I was left to decide without any added pressure. I just hate being jumped on when purchasing goods and in this respect Dreams were 100% good.

I have been using this mattress for about a month now, and it is in truth, the best mattress I have ever slept on. I'm a restless sleeper, and while I fall asleep on my front, I wake up on my side so I really need something where I can lie on my shoulder without it feeling like it was getting trapped or pinched underneath me. The mattress provides just the right amount of support and softness that I can move onto my side in the night, sink into the mattress with my shoulder (but not too much at my hip), and not be aware of it or wake up, which was a problem I had with my old mattress. The ActiGel layer is a nice feature that helps regulate the temperature in the bed and stops me from overheating. Just imagine that cool side of the pillow feeling but on your mattress. So far the rebound on the memory foam has also been fantastic, I've had memory foam products in the past where they've started to sag pretty quickly, thankfully that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am rotating the mattress top to toe every week as directed so that may have an impact. I have no complaints at all with the mattress, and am over the moon with it, but some possible points for readers to be aware of: - The ActiGel may not be for everyone, if you feel the cold more then I think this might not be your cup of tea. If that sounds like you I would definietly recommend going into a store and trying the mattress out before buying. - There is a little bit of a smell when you first start using the mattress, I assume from the ActiGel layer, but this has already disappeared from mine after a month of use. Overall I am very satisfied - super comfortable mattress that I look forward to sleeping on every night, worth the money.

Having already bought a mattress of a well known make from a well known retailer that unfortunately did not live up to it's claim by the manufacturer and my wife was unable to sleep on it from the first night, i was therefore unsure about going into a large business park retailer like Dreams because to be honest we had no idea as to what we should be buying. After a few minutes a member of the sales asked if we needed some help, after a brief discussion we were shown to, what looked like two single beds pushed together with a canopy, turns out it was a device that when we laid on it the sensors in the mattress measured all sorts about the wife and myself and all we had to do was lay there and look up at a screen on the canopy that gave us instructions. After a few minutes it produced what type of mattress we should buy, so our sales lady showed us a selection from one end of the price scale to the other, we were given a couple of lush pillows and were told to try out as many mattresses as we wanted. After a while the wife and i agreed on the TheraPur and our sales lady told us that delivery could be done in two days, she explained about their insurance which for the money is fantastic so i added that, just to finish off i also bought two of those lush pillows. I spent 3 times what the other mattress cost but from night one it has been faultless, everything our sales lady had told us was spot on, i only whished i had gone to dreams first.

Very practical and useful addition to the bed. Would highly recommend as an easy-to-wash solution to save having to keep replacing stained mattresses over-frequently/ You wouldn't even guess it's there with how inconspicuous and low-profile it is. Very good quality all round. Haven't had any "emergencies" with it yet, but I'm hoping it's up to the job when it gets a bit hot in the summer! The only criticism I have - which is why it narrowly misses out on 5 stars - is that the elastic straps are a pain to get to stay on; at least when changing sheets/moving the mattress. We have a 11" thick mattress (which is well within the depth limit the protector fits) and spend the most part of changing the sheets just trying to get the elastic to stop "ping"ing back off and not trapping/scraping fingers in the process holding it in place while we set the mattress back down. I'm happy to concede that this may just be a design/scenario limitation - we have a double-sided mattress; perhaps single-sided fare better with the backing they have? I'm not sure what improvements, if any, could be made to the elastic to give it some more friction and save me time and injuries! Other than the minor inconvenience/pain - all round brilliant product and a superb idea for everyone to get on board with to save your beautiful mattress from unsightly stains and germs.

My partner and I used the Sleepmatch service and were advised to go for a 'firm' rated mattress. We tried a few, having had a pillow-top SilentNight mattress for the previous 9 years, we were suprised to find that we both preferred the feel of this TherPur mattress, which was rated as 'extra firm'. Although we were nervous as we had never heard of this brand, we decided to go for it as we were covered under the 40 night guarantee and the mattress has good reviews online. We've been sleeping on this mattress for two weeks now and we are converted. From the first night, the mattress has been so comfortable for us both and we've been sleeping very well. It's also much lighter in weight than our old SilentNight so it's so much easier to turn and really get the fitted sheets tucked in tight. Cannot say if the ActiGel is doing much to keep us cooler at this stage as it's the middle of winter and the nights are colder anyway! But the mattress itself is great. If you need/like a firm mattress, I'd really recommend giving this one a try. As for Dreams, they were brilliant from start to finish, even price-matching the mattress as it went on sale before it was delivered to us. The delivery was perfect and the guys that delivered were polite and came within the time that they said. Our old mattress was taken away as well. We are very happy customers.

Didn't know where to start choosing a new (well overdue) mattress, heard a lot about Simba so we gave it a go. Best night sleep ever, my wife does get restless and it's either improved or I'm not noticing her moving about.The support is fantastic and it's comfortable too, firmish feel but you still sink into it.Best decision we have made in a long time, happy to recommend.

5 Verified Buyer

My wife has suffered with her back for years and has had operation to alleviate some of the pain. I bought her a foam mattress to give her more support but after two years of perseverance she was in agony every morning! Enter the new Simba mattress........no more morning blues and there's no stopping her now. Incredible product and worth every penny.

5 Verified Buyer

OK - good service , delivered on time and old mattress taken away .The SIMBA is certainly acceptable I wont bother sending it back under their 100 night guarantee but something about it not quite to my liking. Maybe it needs to sit on a divan rather than an oak framed bed like mine.Anyway it's not causing me any sleepless nights , so Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz !

5 Verified Buyer

Can't fault my Simba mattress, getting the best nights sleep I can ever remember, supports me from head to toe, my lower back is feeling fantastic, a problem area for me.The mattress is rolled which is really convenient in this pandemic. The mattress is very well made and really comfy too.Will recommend to everyone.
