Therapur mattresses have been around for a number of years now as a staple of the Dreams retailers core lineup.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

5 Jules

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.
