Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

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!

How does it feel?

Firmness of The Dreams Workshop Brooke Traditional Spring Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.

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.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark
Of The Dreams Workshop Brooke Traditional Spring Mattress
Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.


*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.


  • Stability
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.


  • Initial Odour
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Dreams Workshop Brooke Traditional Spring Mattress Great?

Traditional open spring mattress

This is the most common type of mattress and consists of an inter-connected spring system. You will often find this sort of specification on cheaper mattresses where pocket sprung would have often been the preferable choice for a consumer. That said, it offers great value and support, well worth it if you are on a budget

Quality soft-touch damask cover

Soft touch covers are commonplace in the mattress industry. These covers are still hard wearing enough to last the lifetime of the product but soft enough to the touch to still be comfortable even with the thinnest of sheets on top

Comfort Grade - Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

Rotate Regularly - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

Customer Reviews For The Dreams Workshop Brooke Traditional Spring Mattress

Based on 877 reviews
Much better than expected!

I bought this for my 13 year old son and I'm so happy that I did. I absolutely loath any kind of shopping, so the thought of going to endless bed shops looking for this mattress was not something to look forward to. We chose Dreams first and I'm so pleased that we did, from the friendly greeting to the very covid aware processes we were immediately put at ease. The care and attention afforded to us for a fairly small value purchase (like all teenagers my son is growing like a weed so it not be long before he is in a bigger bed) was pleasant surprise and the bed fitting was a brilliant idea. We followed the chaps advice and my son was happy with the mattress he chose, after a swift and very courteous and covid conscious delivery and two week of use my son is having the best nights sleep ever! The only mistake we made was not buying the mattress protector offer with the additional warranty which is a genuinely good deal and not a gimmicky add on (my cynicism works against me sometimes). Well done Dreams!

Good Basic Mattress

Ordered a medium mattress, the delivery team were very polite and cant be faulted, it came in a plastic sheet and was in great condition. I ordered a fairly standard basic mattress though in the hope it could be delivered quickly, it took 4 weeks. We were able to wait, although my son did have to sleep on a sofa bed in that time (he loved it, but certainly didnt look comfortable to me). This mattress is single sided, you cant flip it. Because of this it seemed a little week to take adult weight standing on it, not like my other dreams mattresses. However it shouldn't be stood upon so should last at the bottom of my sons new bunk bed. Overall, would recommend, was an easy ordering experience, just a shame on the demand / delay.

Excellent mattress at a great price

I bought two of these mattresses for my children's bunk beds and they arrived today, on the day that i was told they would. The delivery went smoothly, with a call on the day to give me a specific time slot and the delivery men carried upstairs and placed them in their room. The mattresses themselves are well made and look more expensive than they are, supportive but not too hard and very comfy! they are padded and they are not thin and flat like some mattresses you can get but nice and full. I spent ages picking the perfect mattress for my kids and I'm so glad i bought these! The customer service in store was magnificent and we were made to feel very welcome and were offered the help that we needed without having to ask.

Whole experience

We bought this mattress a few weeks ago, we have never been more happy with a purchase. The ordering was easy, the delivery was fantastic, we had a couple of emails to tell us the progress of our order. We had a text the day before delivery and the morning of the delivery. We even received a call from the delivery driver to let us know what time they would be with us. The delivery team were, friendly, polite, and very respectful of our carpet, using a piece of carpet in the doorway and shoe protectors. The mattress it's self is very comfortable and we have had really good nights sleep, since getting it. All in all the whole experience was fantastic, there are no faults or complaints at all. Thank you very much, all of you.

Perfect for kids beds, my 6-year-old sleeps well!

We bought two of these mattresses a few weeks ago, and my 6 and 9-year-old boys are very happy with the comfort. My 6-year-old has had trouble sleeping through since he was a baby and already we're seeing a marked improvement! He used to wake pretty much EVERY night, without fail... Now? He's stayed asleep right through the night for 7 out of the last 10 sleeps, and that's despite the fact we're currently having a heatwave! Dreams also kept us up to date with the delivery schedule, my only gripe though is they went a bit far with a text update at 7 am on a Sunday morning! Obviously, this is an automated text but perhaps revise the system to not annoy people so early on a weekend morning! ;)


Our old mattress was well over 20 years old so it was time for a change. We (my wife and I) decided not to go for memory foam so chose this. BIG BONUS !!! 50% discount with free delivery when we bought it. We've been sleeping on it for just over 3 weeks now and we now wake up having had a good night's sleep (which couldn't be said about our vintage 1990's mattress). Excellent delivery too. Highly recommend - to the extent that we will be revisiting the site to buy a bed (and mattress) for our (32 year old) son and his partner for their new home when he moves out later this year.

Excellent Service & Quality

As soon as we walked into the store we were greeted by a salesman. We told him what we were looking for and he showed us our options. We bought a bed with a mattress underneath for a great price and excellent quality. All cash desks were busy so the salesman took our details and processed our order later on. We received a phone call to say our order had been processed we were giving a delivery date and time. The guys that came to deliver the bed were friendly and helpful and unpacked the bed for us. We haven't had such great service for a long time. Thank you Dreams!!!!

Its a Mattress just buy it and fall asleep already

Listen right, you aren't spending a whole lot of money don't expect miracles. It's a mattress, you lay on it and you fall asleep. If at any point in your life you've decided you're a delicate flower; and can't sleep on anything except for a cloud floating through the sky, with your delicate head resting on plump marshmallows, then this ain't the mattress for you. If however you're a normal person who shuts their eyes and goes to sleep then oh baby have I got a sweet deal on a mattress here for you. Better than the literal floor which I can also fall asleep on 5*

Very comfy!

Bought this for my daughter's bed, as she moved from a junior bed to a single bed. Wanted something that would provide enough support but also be comfy and not too different from her junior bed mattress. After reading a few reviews on the Dreams website, we decided to go for this one and have been delighted with our choice. It is a very comfy mattress. My daughter loves it and sleeps very soundly on it. Delivery was very efficient. We received text messages and phone calls to let us know when the mattress would arrive.

Beautiful modern bed

Had this bed now maybe 3 weeks and it's amazing. It looks really nice, the big grey padded headboard makes it look very LA! I was unsure if it'd look this nice in reality, but it's perfect. The mattress is a bit hard, for a medium it feels firm. Either way 1000 times more comfortable than my 10 year old bed! On arrival had the loveliest pair of delivery drivers, they put the bed together (I wasn't expecting that) and they took away all the rubbish and also my old mattress. I DID pay for mattress removal.

Bit disappointed

Im a bit disappointed in the mattress given all the good reviews. Its a bit thin & not springy at all. It would do for a small childs bed or a spare room. My teenager is not amused with it! It was a good price but I wish Id saved up a bit longer & bought a pocket sprung gel mattress like I have on my other bed. I know Dreams would exchange it if I asked but it costs 50 for pick up & re-delivery & Ive still to save up for a more expensive one. I guess Ill need to keep it for a while.

Mattress replacement

Bought this mattress for 97 year old mother wh had a hip replacement following a fall. We wanted her to enjoy easier access to bed and a more gentle comfortable nights sleep. One of the more slim mattresses making it easier for her to get on to and off bed but this in no way compromises comfort. She has used two weeks now since leaving hospital and is enjoying comfortable deep sleeps critical for major surgery recovery. Delighted with this product!

Lovely bed and at a great price

so happy with this bed!! It came today as scheduled, the bed itself is at a high quality and the mattress is so springy and comfortable. The service as a whole was amazing updating me every week to make sure i didn't want to change my delivery date and the 2 men that delivered the bed where so kind, taking there shoes off before entering and not making me feel stupid by explaining how to set up the bed.I would defiantly buy from Dreams again.

New Mattress - 5 Star Service

I cant recommend Dreams enough for their service and goods they provide. We ordered a mattress through them, and from the day of order right the way through to delivery, Dreams stayed in constant contact with regular emails and texts updating me on when my delivery would arrive. The mattress is fantastic and super comfortable which is paramount for me after having multiple back operations. Again, great company and would highly recommend


The mattress is fine for the purpose of purchase - occasional use. However I was assured that my purchase included a waterproof mattress cover if I paid 25 for insurance. This did not arrive with the mattress and when it did turn up it was a none waterproof mattress protector so I still had to purchase a waterproof one. I could have foregone the insurance, just paid for the mattress and saved myself 15 as the cover I bought was only 10

Our daughter is delighted

We visited a showroom in Edinburgh to let our 4-year-old see the beds and bounce on the mattresses. The staff were very helpful but not pushy or in-your-face, just right. We bought our daughter's choice of mattress and she loves it. It's soft, comfortable and bouncy. I wouldn't choose such a soft one for myself but it's perfect for a preschooler. The quality looks good. The delivery guy was exceedingly polite and helpful.

My son loves his new mattress

I bought a new mattress for my son as his one was a little worse for wear. I had already popped into my local dreams store to have a look at mattresses for myself as I have back problems. So I knew I wanted to get a proper mattress for my son one that will last him many years. He absolutely loves his new mattress and sleeps a lot better than he use too. So thank you dreams am very happy with my purchase.

Good mattress

I bought this mattress 3 weeks ago, Its very comfortable, I sleep better. Having problems with my back I had firm mattress before, but this medium one is much better, I stop waking up at night or having pain in my back in the morning. I think this mattress will be perfect for not very heavy person like me, it gives support, its comfortable and good value for money. Im very pleased with this mattress.

At last a great service

I have given a 5 star rating as the bed is just what I wanted great quality for the price. My son is at Uni and it needed to be delivered when he was there. Even he was impressed. They called my son first, arranged the time, took the bed upstairs, put it together and removed the rubbish. Fantastic. he said the bed was so much more comfortable than his one at home that he thinking of not coming back. lol

Great Value, High Quality Mattress

Excellent mattress. Great value for the money. Easily maneuvered to regularly swivel (non turning) to even out wear. The Damask cover was a nice touch which I would have expected on a much more expensive mattress. Bought for my elderly mum who needed a good support mattress without it being too firm and this medium firm suits her fine. Would recommend. The delivery men were also excellent.

Sleeping like a baby

I bought this for my 5 year old son and it is perfect. The overall height of the bed is low enough for him to get onto alone and low enough to not need a bed guard (not that he's fallen out of it yet). The mattress design is perfect for a little person, i.e. no huge dips like you sometimes get with mattress designs. He loves the bed, as it is just like the one he has at Granny's, but better!

Sturdy and comfy

Having slept on the bed for 2 weeks now, I never wake up during the night due to the bed being uncomfy. We did however put a mattress topper on it, but that's due to our preferences, not because the bed was hard! Good value for money, however it's a shame the headboard never comes with it, and is so expensive to purchase singularly normally. Great service, would definitely pick Dreams again!

Great shopping experience

The staff at Kings Heath were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. We weren't rushed, our questions efficiently answered and treated with good old fashioned courtesy and service. Oh, and yes, the products we bought - Dalton open spring medium mattress - and single bed were exactly as promised - great value and just what we wanted. Would recommend the product and the shop to anyone.

Quick, easy and friendly purchasing experience

We were looking for a single mattress for our spare room and the process could not have been easier. We made our choice and then received very prompt and friendly service from the assistant who made the process so very quick and efficient for us. Delivery was equally quick and efficient with the old mattress removed and new mattress installed. We are delighted with our purchase.

Comfort at a reasonable cost

I bought this when shopping for a mattress for a guest bed and I wasn't looking to spend a fortune. When some renovations forced me to move out of the main bedroom and use this bed I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort level and support. I had a great couple of nights sleep and if you are looking for a reasonably priced confortable mattress I recommend considering this out

Comfortable, Good Quality, and Good Value

Bought a few weeks back. It's comfortable, I don't know exactly how it's made but it's really comfortable even though it's quite thin (Don't let that put you off, it's actually really good). It was cheaper than a lot of the other mattresses I was looking at, but me and my girlfriend are more than happy with it (And she's fussier than me :P). Well worth buying if you ask me.

Price reflexes the quality

Bought this for my 5 year old son and at first he thought what is this but amazingly he sleeps more peacefully. Is comfy and not to hard nor to soft. It's a lot bouncier than his starter bed but that has a hard memory foam on it which are hard. Overall it's great how long it lasts is another story as coil springs are not my favourite but for the price it's a good buy

Lovely mattress

Bought this a month ago, thought i would see how it really was before leaving a review. Bought for my 9 year old after hers had gone very flat and uncomfortable and this did not disappoint. She said shes been having the best sleep ever, its higher than her last one and a bit firmer but it is very comfortable, fits lovely in her bed frame and an excellent price.

Good quality budget mattress

This mattress provides the perfect amount of support and has a good amount of fillings to give it a soft comfortable surface. The only thing I dont like is that it is no turn, meaning you can only sleep on the one side of the mattress. This will likely shorten its lifespan a little but I am very happy with this mattress and can see it lasting me many a years.

Just the job

This is just what I needed - an open coil, double sided mattress which is suitable for my slatted bedstead and is lightweight enough for me to turn without straining my back. I agree it feels a bit hard for a medium mattress, but I think that's because, being double sided, it doesn't have memory foam. I added a memory foam topper and I'm sleeping like a baby.

Great company to deal with

It was easy to find what I wanted and was easy to buy online. Then I was contacted by delivery drivers early to give me an expected time and they then arrived exactly when they said. They were very polite and helpful and brought it to my desired location with no trouble. Everything was very very easy. I would buy fro this company again without hesitation.

Fabulous service and product

We purchased a single bed for our guest room From order to delivery we were kept informed by e mail and text and the bed arrived exactly in the 2 hour slot allocated the day before and by telephone on the very day The delivery team were careful polite and efficient We are therefore happy with our value for money product and the good service thank you

So comfortable

My son desperately needed a new mattress so we decided on this as my daughter has one and loves it. After his first nights sleep he declared it the best, comfiest sleep hes had for ages. I agree, it is so comfortable... having had to vacate my own bed a few times after him having a bad dream, coming into my room and then taking up all of my bed!!

Great mattress

Got this mattress as I didn't what to spend to much as you change them after so many years I also wanted a medium one and this one fitted the bill both ways it's a great mattress mine did have a black mark on it but that came from the outer plastic as there was some on there but just rubbed it with a bit of varnish soap and then as good as new

Great product!

Great product, fantastic price. The product was delivered in no time and packaged well. Its comfortable and brilliant value for money. I honestly didnt expect it to be as good as what it is. I would highly recommend! The quality is far beyond what youd expect for the price you pay, its well made and you wouldnt go far wrong buying this.

Great mattress and price son loves it!

I brought this a month ago for my son and he loves it. He said its very comfortable and it was a great price. Also the whole experience with Dreams was brilliant from start to finish. Even in the current situation contact was made, delivery was on time and the delivery drivers were amazing! Would definitely buy from Dreams again in future.

Extremely comfortable

I needed to buy a bed at last minute to accommodate extra guests -firstly, having tried a couple of other well known suppliers, it was only Dreams who could help at such short notice-that was the first thing.....the second thing is that my niece said that it is the best night's sleep she's had in months!!! No better accolade in my opinion!

brilliant mattress

I absolutely love my mattress. its perfect for me. complete nights sleep every time. I recommend dreams mattresses to everyone. The team in the Truro store were really helpful when I was picking a mattress, delivery was quick and simple. such a great company. will definitely be buying from them again the next time I need a mattress.

My Mattress Review

I love my new mattress!! I used to wake up in the night abs toss and turn, never managing to fall into a deep sleep. Now I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow because the mattress is so comfy! The two men that helped me put up the bed and put on the mattress were so kind and helpful, that really doubled my experience !!!

Comfortable and good value.

I bought 2 of these, one each for my children. They are very pleased with the comfort. I like the small single size as they share a room and I don't want it too crowded. This is my 3rd time buying beds and mattresses from Dreams and they have always arrived on time and delivered the right items. They are good value for money.

Good price and comfort

A good value mattress and very comfortable of the price. I tried some cheaper mattress in shop and they were really thin and uncomfortable. For a few extra pounds this mattress was such an improvement. Im happy to know that any guest rhat stays and sleeps in this mattress will be comfy and hopefully have a good nights sleep

Quality bargain!

Quality and bargain are not usually 2 words i would use in the same sentence but these mattresses genuinely are! I bought 2 for my girls bunk beds and the quality matched up to a mattress Id previously bought at 4 times the price! My girls are happy and claim theyre comfortable and even Ive slept in there and agree!

Fantastic nights sleep again

The mattress is wonderful, extremely comfortable. It is a medium and is perfect for us. Lovely looking as well with a beautifully soft covering. The two delivery men were extremely efficient and courteous and the promised phone calls to give a two hour delivery slot were made. Superb service and product, thank you.

Very nice mattress

I have only been sleeping on this mattress for a few days, now but it's like a dream. My former Landlord had us sleeping on a shoddy Ikea mattress for a year, and moving onto this, which actually has some support, and isn't like sleeping on sandbags, has been really great. My back feels better than it has in ages!

Very happy and high quality item.

Great mattress, Its providing a great nights sleep. It all seems well made and quality. I think mattress purchasing can be overwhelming, but you get what you pay for, so In my opinion its not worth buying inferior quality mattress as your quality of sleep has a direct effect on your physical and mental health.

Best night's sleep in ages!

I bought this mattress for my teenage son who had and foam mattress previously. I was worried about the springs and whether he'd feel them since it wasn't pocket sprung but he has been waking refreshed and said it was the best night's sleep he has had in ages! Now thinking of buying the double version for me.

wonderful matress

This is the most comfy matress I have ever slept on. The matress is firm but soft and I wake up feeling so well rested. I usually get achey after a nights sleep but the posturepedic topper supports the body So I no longer get this. This matress is well worth the money, I wish I'd bought one sooner in my life.

New Mattress and Bed

I had to order a new mattress and bed after having my old one for nearly 10 years. I have honestly never slept better! I ordered the removal service, and the build service so Dreams delivered the mattress and bed, built my new one and took it all away within 30mins! Really good service and a great price!

Great mattress

So far, this mattress has worked perfectly and my comfort level has massively increased. Once the mattress has settled to my body shape, I feel I will sleep a lot better then I used to. It gets a 4 star rating rather then 5 as I felt a small spring go on one of the corners. That surprised me so early on.

Single mattress

Bought 2 single traditionally sprung mattresses for grandchildrens beds. As they are only 10 and very light, there was no need for expensive million coil pocket springs or anti roll together technology. These are just comfortable medium sprung mattresses at a very good price. I am sure will last for years.

Saved by the bell!

I wasn't getting a good night's sleep at all with my old mattress ... but when I got my Dalton Single Traditional Spring Mattress from Dreams, all that changed. I am now having very good nights on what has turned out to be a really comfortable mattress. Thank goodness that I made the decision to change.

seems fine

Bought 2 of these last month for the stacking bed set. They are comfortable; the only niggle is that there were a lot of long loose ends of threads from the quilting on the top of the mattresses. We have encased the mattresses in mattress covers to avoid the threads getting pulled and causing any problem.

Excellent bed and service

I bought this bed in July and having slept in it for over a moth now, I sleep a lot better and the bed itself is both comfy and is in good condition/seems as good as new. It was assembled quickly, Dream's customer care was excellent, and overall the bed-frame and mattress have superseded my expectations.

Great quality for my sons first bed

I bought this mattress for my son, who is two, with the intention that my partner and I can share it with him when he needs settling. Its very comfortable and seems to be great quality. Im very happy with the mattress and it fits my expectations for what will, likely, be my sons bed for many years! :)

Outstanding comfort

I bought this matress a while back , and already I can see a huge improvement from my last matress. It is extremely comfortable and I am able to fall asleep very quickly using your matress. The matress doesn't make you hot during summer nor cold during the winter. Also, it was extremely easy to install.

Good quality mattress for the price

Good quality mattress for the price. It has the right level of firmness for a side sleeper. You can spend much more on a mattress but I personally don't think the difference in price between this and more expensive mattresses is is reflected in the feel of the mattress, but maybe it won't last as long.

Mattress as described

Bought this mattress a month ago. Contact from customer service to organise convenient drop off. Delivery driver dropped straight to front door. Comfortable mattress just what we were looking for. Not too firm and not soft. Great nights sleep from first night. Highly recommend! Great price from Dreams.

Brilliant mattress

I bought this mattress(the Dalton) the other day and im so pleased i did! My daughter has had a much better sleep in her new bed!! And its so comfy we can both lie on it.. So thanks dream team at Derby meteor team, you excelled yourselves!! First class customer service! Even offered me a coffee!!

Great quality

Purchased this mattress for my 6 yo son for his new bed. Its great quality for the price and my son says its "so comfy". The delivery men were great and popped it in the hall for me. Very pleased with the purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a good quality reasonable priced mattress.

Great quality, reasonably priced

Needed a mattress a certain depth to match up with an existing one in the granddaughters' bedroom. Very little choice around in fact some suppliers didn't have any. With only one to choose from was very pleased in the quality. Not yet slept on so don't know if it passes the granddaughter's test.

Very comfy!

We bought this as a replacement mattress a few weeks ago for our daughter and for the occasional guest to use. It'll do both jobs well. It's very comfy with a nice soft top layer, which means you can'f feel the springs at all. It's a medium firmness as described and seems good value for money.

Poor service needs reviewing

Mattress was ok, but your customer service is diabolical, re returning mattress and bed base re damage to bed draw, which came apart on setting bed up in designated room. never again will I buy from you or recommend Argos have been brill next day delivery great customer care and great products.

Very comfortable bed

I swapped a rickety wooden bed frame and mattress for the Dalton bed, mattress and headboard and the new bed is wonderfully comfortable and solidly made. Easy to join the two-part base together. Lovely large drawers which have tidied the bedroom of storage boxes. No hesitation in recommending.

Great first bed

Great as a first bed out of cot bed / toddler bed as it's fairly low meaning that toddler can safely get in and out without help. As and adult, mattress is quite soft and although very comfortable I'm not sure how supportive it would be long term, but is fine for toddler/child who weighs less.

Great Mattress

I bought this a couple of weeks ago after sending back to Argos a Silentnight mattress as it was so firm it was like sleeping on the floor. This Brooke is perfect not too firm but not too soft, it is just what we were looking for. The sales lady was really nice as well. Thank you Dreams.

Good for those on a budget

Brought this mattress to go with my new bed for my new flat and I am very glad I did. Having spent the last 10 months on a funton, this mattress has resulted in many comfortable nights sleep. Not too hard that you wake up feeling stiff, but also not too soft. Overall a great mattress!!

Great value bed and mattress

This bed was bought a couple of months ago for a 98 year old lady who had problems with getting in and out of her old bed after fracturing her femur. This bed is just the right height for her. She is delighted with it. She sleeps in later now as she says she is so comfortable and cosy.

great service

I bought two single beds and mattresses. the service was fantastic. The delivery men were excellent. They called to say they would be at my house at 8 o'clock. True to their word they were there and away by 8.05 am. Lovely friendly staff. The delivery men were called Gary and Michael.

Good value but a bit springy/light

Had the mattress about a month now and have noticed its much thinner than my previous mattress. Its ok... but feels a bit springy and not sure how long it will last. On the plus side - Its lightweight and easy to move around. Would suit someone who likes a not very firm mattress.

Comfy and Affordable

Wanted a new medium firm mattress for a single bed. This seemed to be the best on offer in the price range. Mattress arrived I can confirm it is comfy and offers even support. Very happy with the ordering process, customer service and the communication from the company throughout.

Excellent value

I bought this mattress a month ago ..I had been looking around and everything was so expensive....so when I looked on dreams I thought this was to good to be true...anyway I bought it was delivered free arrived when they said it would be and it's so comfy all round great value.

Good that it reversible. Very comfortable.

The delivery was disapointing. Very grumpy staff and when asked if they could remive the packaging along with the old matress (we chise the recycling option) was told "it is not our job". It may not be their job but the manner was rude and unfriendly. That wa the only gripe..

Such a good sleep

I sleep so well on this mattress, usually at the weekend I am an up and out type of person, get something achieved, the last 3 weekends i have managed to sleep so well in the morning and feel so much better and awake for the whole week, this mattress is worth its wait in gold

Does what it was bought for

It was bought for a guest bed which will be slept in for a week, twice, possibly three times a year. Does what it needs to for the price and it is comfy, as some budget mattresses can be a bit lumpy. I wouldn't recommend sleeping on it permanently, but all round very pleased.

Excellent quality would recommend to others

Excellent quality, very comfy. My daughter loves her new bed. From the minute we stepped in the shop to once the item was delivered, the service we received from dreams was outstanding. The delivery team was very prompt and professional when delivering the items fantastic

Brooke medium mattress

I purchased this mattress for my son, Ive not slept on it but my son wanted a medium mattress and the reviews helped me to choose the Brooke. The whole service via dreams was excellent, good price, quick delivery with regular updates. Im very satisfied with my purchase.

Incredibly comfortable

Had this mattress for a month now, replacing a much firmer memory foam mattress from Casper. Since we have had this mattress gone are the aches and pains we woke up to every morning. Suitable for sleeping on front, back and side, incredibly comfortable in every position.

good price-quality

We wanted a mattress on a short notice and after a visit to Dreams this was the best option. I wasnt sure about open spring mattresses (remembering how they were in the past), but this mattress is actually very comfortable, and the medium firmness is how we prefer it.

Simple but comfortable

This is a basic bed with a divan base and spring mattress, it is fine and comfortable. I had to put the casters on by myself, and also the headboard when it arrived, and there were no instructions for this. The drawers in the base are useful but not very easy to open.

Brilliant comfy mattress

Bought for my 3 year old on her transition from a toddler bed to a single bed. Absolutely brilliant mattress cant fault it in the slightest. My daughter sleeps brilliantly on it, and loves going to bed now! The firmness is medium and its just right for my daughter.

Comfortable bed and good nights sleep

I bought this bed for my youngest as he moved from a cot. A comfortable bed was a must as we regularly habe to sleep in the bed with my youngest in order to get any sleep! This bed has resulted in the through the night wake ups by my teething two tear old bearable.

So comfy

I bough this product about 3 weeks ago in the clearance sale, it was such great value for money! Its very comfy and you cannot feel a single spring! Its actually for my 2 year olds bed but myself and husband have both lyes down on it and didnt want to get up.

Dalton Mattress

This mattress has just the right balance of firmness and 'give' in the right places. It has a firm edge, so allows you to use all of it for sleeping on. Very fast delivery and well packaged in a double layer of heavy grade plastic sheet. Lastly, very good value

Importance on physical check on product before buy

Bought the mattress online. Should have gone to the shop to check on the firmness. Though happy with the service provided by company , but the mattress was too soft and not firm enough . Suggest to always check and feel mattresses before ordering them online.

Quality mattress

Last month I bought two traditional spring mattresses to go with the guest divan base I had purchased. They are to go in my third bedroom so my twin grandchildren can stay with me. I am very pleased with the quality of the mattress and how comfortable it is


We bought this as our guest room bed, and it's been great so far. Dry comfortable and well made. Love having divan beds as they're so easy to put together. The delivery was on time and the drivers were fantastic. Would recommend both the bed and Dreams.


I bought a mattress for my daughter. Such an easy process from start to finish. Taking my old mattress away was just fantastic. The two men that came were the DREAM TEAM the old mattress gone and new one in before I knew it! Super job Dreams! Thank you


We purchased a pair of single mattresses purely for our grandchildren to be able to come and stay with us, delivery was very efficient and and on time as the delivery team texted to let me know in advance of arrival so cannot fault in any way top marks.

Perfect for the kids

We bought 2 of these mattresses for our childrens first "big beds". They are a medium firm mattress, but plenty firm enough for the kids to sleep on. They seem very good quality. Delivery was quick and on time. They delivery guys were very friendly too.

Good soft mattress

I've had this mattress for about 2 weeks now. It took a few days of discomfort to get used to it as I hadn't reckoned on it being quite so soft. However, I got a firm pillow to compensate and since then it has been fine. The delivery was a good service.

Spring mattress

The mattress looked very good quality, but unfortunately it was the wrong size, so never got to try it. I must say the delivery and return collection were both in the time slots advised. Have bought from this company and will do again when required.

Great mattress for the price

Bought for a child's single bed. Very lovely soft outer covering. The mattress itself i would personally say is edging towards a 'soft' rather than 'medium'...however it's being slept on every night with no complaints! A great buy for a child's bed

Great nights sleep

I've suffered from back and neck problems for years and tried memory foam pillows, osteopath, chiropractic treatment etc nothing worked. After this new mattress from dreams I can finally look forward to a good nights sleep at the end of everyday.

Build Cost

I bought a guest single bed with another single underneath. The iteam are fine however do not purchase the delivery people to build. This cost 18 and all they had to do was fit yhe headboard and remove/take away the packaging. WHAT A RIP OFF!!

Okay for child or occasional use

Bought two of these, based on reviews, for young daughter's trundle bed. It's okay, a bit springy but better with a mattress topper. I wouldn't want to sleep on it every night but daughter is comfortable on it for now and it's fine as a guest bed.

Brooke Traditional Spring Mattress

Thinking about the price mattress is very nice and comfy, ordering process was very easy. Ive been kept updated with delivery and drivers phoned me 30 min before turn. Mattress was very good packed ( double foil ). Overall very good experience.


I was a bit sceptical about ordering this mattress as Ive had one previous but at a much higher price I was quite surprised how good this mattress is its not heavy at all I now get a good nights sleep in it well worth the price that I paid for.


We bought several Dalton mattresses for our holiday cottages and we've had great comments about the comfort of the mattress. One person said they didn't want to get out of bed in the mornings. We're so pleased we chose this mattress. Thank you.

Great bed!

I bought this bed as I was downsizing. So much to pack blankets , shoes, winter coats and bits. So much more space than having drawers. Plus of course if the room is small you may you may both have space for a chest off ragweed, really ideal!

Basic mattress for spare single bed

Basic mattress for a spare single bed. Don't think I would want to sleep on it every night! Only been used twice so can't really comment although my husband found it quite uncomfortable compared to our own pocket sprung/memory foam mattress!
