Customers have consistently given positive reviews, with a 95% satisfaction rate. Many have commended the bed for its value and comfort, particularly its firmness which is ideal for those with neck and back pain or for back and stomach sleepers.
Positive aspects customers noted include the mattress's comfort, support, and overall value for money. They were impressed with the 1000 pocket sprung base layer (now upgraded to 1015) that offers a level of support usually seen in more expensive options. Furthermore, customers appreciated the fact that the product is made in the UK with many also satisfied with the delivery times and the Dreams 100 Night Guarantee, which allows them to return the mattress for a different model if not satisfied. The firm tension can be problematic for side sleepers who require a bit more “give” from the springs in order to accommodate the hip and shoulder, as a result, many side sleepers may wish to consider a medium tension alternative. That said, those who are combination sleepers, or sleep dedicated on their back or stomach have each reported huge success with this high quality layer.
On the other hand, some customers had concerns and dislikes. A few users found the mattress too firm, suggesting it may not suit everyone's comfort preferences (this is where side sleepers might suffer). Others mentioned issues with durability, noticing partially broken sewing thread, although this did not affect the beds functionality. Some customers also reported that the buttoned indents on the surface were quite deep, leading to a slightly bumpy surface; however, this was not a significant issue when lying on the mattress (tufting is very common on high quality products). A few customers experienced an adjustment period before fully enjoying the product's comfort and support.
The Banbury Pocket Sprung Mattress is part of The Dreams Team Range and is manufactured in Oldbury, West Midlands. It belongs to the Dreams Workshop collection and is handcrafted with care and attention to detail. The bed comes in various sizes, including single, double, king, and super king, as well as a small double size for limited spaces.
Delivery times currently average just over a week, which is acceptable for most customers. Additionally, Dreams offers a 100-night guarantee, allowing customers to exchange their mattress for a different model if not satisfied.
