Why our sleep experts loved it

The Dream Team Banbury Pocket Sprung Mattress has gained considerable recognition for its exceptional value and quality. As a top seller in the Dream Team range, this product distinguishes itself with a 1015 pocket sprung base layer that is typically found in pricier models, providing outstanding comfort and support. The Banbury is also known for its luxurious fillings, anti-roll together technology, quality tufting, and affordable price, all of which contribute to an excellent sleep experience. Interested in learning more about what people like and dislike? Let’s read on and find out.

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.

Suitability

*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.

Performance

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • 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.

Odour

  • 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.

My old mattress was like an old jumper that I had held onto for far too long. Historically, I would purchase any mattress with my only stipulation being that it had to be relatively firm. A few months back I happen to sleep at my friend's house and noticed that as I hit the pillow, I immediately drifted into sleep and found it hard the next morning to leave the bed. In the morning she spoke of her 'new mattress' as if it was a well known friend and although not entirely convinced, it was enough to stoke my curiosity in wanting to explore t more this fascination with mattresses. After much deliberation, I took a trip down to my local Dreams store, and tried out some of the beds. The choice was a little overwhelming, being a novice mattress purchaser. My final choice was the Maitland Pocket Sprung Mattress which I purchased along with the Nixson bedframe. I AM A CONVERT! My husband and I never appreciated the importance of a good mattress until that first week and I never knew that a good mattress has so many benefits such as creating feelings of calmness, peace and warmth. I still have not worked out how a mattress can make you more relaxed. It sounds cheesy but we both look forward to going to bed at night. The mattress is comfortable - firm, yet not hard and the bed, also purchased at Dreams (Nixson) is both attractive to look at and inviting.

I bought this just over a month ago now and I am so glad i did. I was having serious hip pain and lower back pain (at 34) and realised the mattress i had just wasnt suitable despite only being 4 years old. I hsd been looking online but decided to go into the Bath Road branch in Slough to try out the ones i had seen. I was greeted by a lovely assistant who pointed me in the right direction to the ones i had seen and let me test and take my time. I made a decision and was offered a chance to try the sleep match machine to see if my choice fit my needs and thankfully it did. I took out the extra warranty at no pressure and received a waterproof mattresss protector which is also brilliant and doesnt shift around under the sheet. The mattress is so comfortable and even after 3 nights i finally woke up with no lower back pain and the pains in my hips have massively improved! Great product dreams and great staff in your Bath Road branch.

This mattress was supposed to be medium/firm, however it is quite firm. We had a memory foam before this so this has been very hard for us to start sleeping on. 4 weeks on and I find it really comfy now although my husband still says it's too firm. I like the fact you don't roll into the middle and also can sleep right to the edge without feeling like you will fall off. With our combined weight and the fact I am a side sleeper and my husband sleeps on his back we couldn't go any softer on a mattress as I read up on everything as it's so hard to buy online. You do have to turn it once a week (for 3 months) and flip it completely over (once a month) for the mattress to settle and not sag. I am so glad we didn't go for the really firm one as this is firm, however it really does depend what mattress you've had before this for your perception of it. I got this mattress in the sale, so it was such good value.

Having had a foam mattress for about five years then switching to a firm pocket sprung mattress I wasn't sure how my partner and myself would sleep on our new mattress. It's been about three weeks now and we both agree that it's been a great improvement on our comfort and sleep. We both had suffered from aches and pains after a night's sleep occasionally and we both felt an immediate change for the better after just one night. The old foam mattress was too soft and not supporting our bodies properly, but it took a change in mattress to realise this. I had a concern about a sprung mattress making it susseptable to rolling syndrome, when someone gets in or out the bed and disturbing the other. This turned out to be not the case either. We have both been able to get in and out of the bed without disturbing the other's sleep, which is great. Overall it's a great mattress for the price.

I bought this mattress to replace my old one. The old one was the exact same mattress but from 7 years ago and a cream colour. Id researched pocket springs before the first purchase and really liked the idea of not disturbing my partner if I want to get out of bed while hes asleep, and I wanted something firm that would last me as it gets softer over years of use. The firm is so nice on my back. Its great for... "activities"; reduced movement of mattress gives reduced bed movement and no creaking or squeaking of bed frame therefore. I would strongly recommend dreams to everyone I know and their old mattress removal option was fantastic for our house move. A bag delivers in the post that u unfold and put your old mattress inside, and then the men delivering the new one, just take the other when they leave. Ive been nothing but happy with my purchase and sleep very comfortably at night.

We have been needing to replace our old mattress for a while now but haven't had the funds. When I saw this mattress and how good the price was I couldn't really say no, at the end of the day anything had to be better than the one we had! Delivery was quick and simple, the delivery guys were lovely and took the mattress upstairs for me. The mattress was thick and looked like it was made well and of good quality. We have had the mattress for about a month now and although at first it made us both really achy I think it was because there wasn't any support in out old one so our bodies jyst weren't used to it. Now we both sleep well, no aches and it's still firm but has give a little so it's comfortable but no squeaky springs sticking in your back. For the price I think this is a great mattress and we are more than happy with it, would recommend.

Wife dragged me out to look at new mattress for our sons single bed. Firstly went to neighbouring shop where we were directed to kids mattresses in an assortment of colour coded piping denoting the different construction and quality. The best was 40 less than the Dreams one guaranteed for a year. Went into dreams and the Maitland mattress was nearly twice as deep, luxurious in materials used and with an 8 year guarantee. Yes it was 40 more expensive (offer price) but 1000% a more superior product and with free delivery too. We even brought the double Maitland and a new Ottoman bed during the same visit. Excellent service from the Dreams Bedford Salesperson unlike the guy in the next door shop (B for Beds!) who dropped us like a stone to concentrate on more lucrative customers when we announced our purpose was just a single mattress.

I bought this mattress 2 weeks ago, the delivery was outstanding, especially during the current climate. The delivery driver was spot on! Unfortunately I missed the call, but the text I recieved I immediately sent it to my partner and almost instantly the delivery man was there at the door! My boyfriend was really impressed with the bloke, he gave him all the information about maintaining the mattress and he kept to the social distancing guidelines very well. The mattress itself is incredible! The handles on the sides allow me to flip it myself without much hassle, and even allowed my partner to carry it up the stairs with minimal issues as well. Its firm enough to support you, again, fella can attest to that kneeling to play the xbox (silent eye roll -ha!. But its the perfect kind of firm, for a pefect night sleep.

Honestly, you cannot go wrong or fault this mattress. It is by far the best Ive ever had or slept on, the quality and value is excellent. If I stick to the care routine described in the leaflet (mainly turning and rotating), I cant see why it should not give me at least 10 years of service. I recommend to use mattress protector inderneath the fitted sheet. The best part? I havent even got to the shop to try it out before buying, and only trusted the other reviews and company description, and my gut feeling. Turns out to be spot on, love the tension- firm just right for me, so supportive what a difference compared to the cheap fifty quid foam mattress I had for a year before, where I was sunk like in a trough. Now I sleep like on a heavenly cloud. Thank you Dreams, I love you

*A Dream Customer Experience*...I wandered in to the Dreams store (Slough) unsure exactly what I was after, though sure of my strict budget (sub 600 for 2 single beds for my mum's place, and a double mattress for mine - again, sub 600). Dominik was extremely knowledgeable on the product lines, current promotions, and quality-standards. The store had a promotion on - and a few of the single-mattresses there were within range (despite original prices of over 500), and Dominik was able to quickly assure me on any concerns - show me the specs of the beds, such as the spring types and quality-assurance. Very happy so far - on both the single and double mattresses - a comfortable sleep at a welcome price. Many many thanks for the guidance and seamless in-store experience.

I was looking around for a new mattress as I was moving into a new house and wanted fresh everything so I had a clean slate. I struggle terribly with back pain especially since I gave birth but I was speaking to my auntie and she said to have a look at dreams as the mattress she has was from there, I had a look but was still at a loss to went into a shop to try out firmness. I found my preference and went home to price things up. I forgot about the whole need to buy a mattress thing for a few days then had a look online and got an amazing deal because of the sale. Best purchase I have made! My back doesnt hurt as much, my body feels rested! Absolutely brilliant. My only complaint is that if you live alone its really awkward to move but all mattresses are.

Did the sleep test thingy and because we wanted a traditional style mattress this was one of the options. We still checked out others in store and other stores. Before deciding this was the one for us plus it was on half price offer so it was an easy choice in the end. It's quite firm which is what we wanted and although it's only 3 weeks since delivery it's going well. We knew we needed a new mattress but it's not until you have the first night on the new one that you realise the difference and being able to lie comfortably in various positions. I'm a back sleeper as I have issues with arm pains if I lie on my side but I find I can lie on my sides now for considerably longer than on old mattress. So for now very happy let's hope it continues that way.

Do I have to turn this mattress over each time

Answer: This mattress is double-sided which means that both surfaces are suitable for sleeping on. To get the maximum lifespan from your mattress, we recommend turning over and rotating regularly. For the first 3 months, we recommend you do this weekly and from 3 months onwards, one a month. This will help to prolong the life of your mattress and keep it in the best condition possible.

Does the maitland mattress have different layers of foam, that maybe thicker or more comfortable in one of the sides ?

Answer: This mattresses is double sided so you can sleep on either side. The Maitland has no foam and is filled with other luxurious fillings so will feel the same on both sides of the mattress.
