The Brooke Traditional Spring Mattress is of an open coil variety featuring hourglass bonnell springs. I’d personally prefer pocket springs, however, the traditional springs on offer in the Brooke mattress should offer reasonable support and at a fantastic price too.
The Brooke Mattress is of medium tension firmness meaning that it will suit the vast majority of people regardless of how you sleep, be it side sleeper, back sleeper or front sleeper. If you find you are on the larger side you may want to consider a firmer mattress but as a catch all this ticks all the boxes.
If you have previously purchased a mattress from Dreams, you may be familiar with the previous model of the Brooke, known as the Dalton. The Dalton was one of the bestsellers in the Dreams collection and the new model improves on that mattress with more fillings for a more luxurious and comfortable feeling.
The Brooke is made in the UK and handcrafted in the UK and part of the impressive Dreams Workshop lineup, with is an internal brand of products in the mid-range segment that offers great quality at lower than average prices.
Reviews for the Brooke Traditional Spring Medium Mattress are strong, with over 800 reviews and 95% customer satisfaction from those that have slept on it. The 95% rating sees the Brooke toward the top end of the charts in terms of satisfaction and is one of the more impressive we've reviewed due to it's remarkable low price and comparatively high quality. Positive reviews are almost exclusively around the incredible value while some of the negative reviews relate to the traditional springs wearing unevenly causing a rare warranty claim with the retailer. Traditional spring mattresses do have a lower life expectancy than their pocket sprung counterparts, however, the far lower price associated with these products more than offsets the rare warranty issues around springs.
If there were an issue with the mattress, Dreams have one of the best rated customer service teams in the industry, amassing an impressive 49,000 reviews so you won't have an issue getting the support you need, in one way or another!
Reasons to Buy
Low cost mattress at an appealing price point that is sure to resonate with those on a budget.
Customers really enjoy the value proposition of the Brooke, with people generally satisfied with the level of firmness offered.
The medium tension has mass appeal, working well for most people of average build while proving soft enough for side sleepers and firm enough for back sleepers.
Reasons to Avoid
Top layer is not as deep and luxurious as some customers were hoping for, with a few reports of the springs being felt through the mattress. This isn't uncommon at this price point but is often more of a concern for heavier people. Tolerances will shift depending on weight and the Brooke I demoed in store felt perfectly comfortable on my average frame.
