Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

If you're a back sleeper or someone with a higher BMI, you'll love this mattress. It's firm and supportive, just what you need to keep your spine aligned and wake up refreshed.

What's really great is how affordable it is. Despite the quality materials and design, it doesn't cost the earth. So, if you're shopping on a budget, this could be a good pick.

Lots of folks have left glowing reviews for this mattress, praising its comfort, firmness, and bang for the buck. And you know what they say, the customer is always right!

On the downside, if you're a side sleeper who needs more sinkage to cushion your hips and shoulders, this mattress might feel a bit too firm.

While the traditional spring base works fine, it doesn't quite match up to the adaptive support of pocket springs. So, if that's important to you, it's something to bear in mind.

Why our sleep experts loved it

We’re taking a deep dive into the Dreams Workshop and the new Sanderson Traditional Spring Mattress, a high-quality addition to their budget range. This mattress is designed for those who desire a blend of comfort, durability, and affordability. Being expertly crafted in the UK, this mattress represents an upgrade on the bestselling Turner model, featuring all the cherished aspects of the classic design, but enveloped in a superior quality cover.

Who is this mattress going to suit?

This mattress hits the mark for back sleepers, given its firm tension that offers little 'give', yet provides an excellent level of support. The comfort layers, generously filled with polyester, ensure durability and breathability while enhancing the cosiness quotient. The soft-touch damask cover amplifies the overall comfort factor. If you are a budget-conscious shopper who doesn't want to trade-off on quality and comfort, the Sanderson mattress is your ideal pick.

Who is this mattress not suited for?

While the Sanderson Traditional Spring Mattress garners widespread approval, its firm tension may not deliver the degree of sinkage that some side sleepers desire. Side sleepers needing a bit more conforming support for their hips and shoulders may not find this mattress as inviting.

Firm tension

The Sanderson mattress offers firm tension, making it a preferred choice for back sleepers and those with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI). It provides robust support, minimising sinkage and maintaining spinal alignment.

Polyester comfort layer

The comfort layer of this mattress is made from polyester, a highly resilient and durable material. Polyester provides a plush yet supportive feel, ensuring maximum comfort. Its breathable nature aids in temperature regulation, ensuring you stay comfortable throughout the night.

Traditional sprung support layer

The base layer of this mattress is fitted with traditional open coil springs. Known for their affordability and efficiency, open coil springs offer a firm, steady support system. They work well in distributing weight evenly and providing ample support to prevent pressure point discomfort although they do not perform quite as well as pocket springs.

What did customers think?

The customer reviews reveal high levels of satisfaction. Many buyers praised the mattress's comfort and firmness, with several comments about improved sleep quality and reduced back pain. There were multiple mentions of the mattress's excellent value for money and the professional and prompt delivery service which was another point of high praise. Overall, the Sanderson Spring Mattress enjoys positive reviews, signalling good customer satisfaction.

Price

Given its features and quality, the Sanderson Traditional Spring Mattress is competitively priced. With all popular sizes available and with this product starting as low as the mid-£200 mark for the single sizes. This makes it an affordable option for those seeking a balance of comfort, support, and affordability.

Features

The Sanderson Traditional Spring Mattress boasts an array of distinctive features. From the 288 traditional springs delivering even support across the entire sleeping surface, to the deep layers of quality fillings ensuring utmost comfort, this mattress is purpose-built for a tranquil night's sleep. The soft-touch damask cover adds a luxurious feel, and it comes backed with a 1-year guarantee and a 100-Night Comfort Guarantee for your peace of mind. As a no-turn mattress, it merely requires regular rotation from head to toe to maintain its integrity. In essence, the Sanderson mattress is a sound investment for quality sleep.

Final thoughts

The Dreams Workshop Sanderson Traditional Spring Mattress stands as an excellent choice for those seeking a firm and comfortable mattress without breaking the bank. Its superior quality, firm tension, and affordability make it a great investment. This mattress's popularity among back sleepers, coupled with its high-quality construction, ensures a comfortable and revitalising sleep experience.

I bought this to replace my old mattress, which over time had developed the structural integrity of a pillow case filled with blancmange. After many months of uncomfortable sleep, I eventually admitted defeat and decided to buy a shiny new mattress. Thanks to lockdown and social distancing being in place, I was luckily unable to embarrass myself by offering- and subsequently failing- to help carry the mattress from the van to the room it needed to be in. The delivery drivers were more than capable of carrying it (on one shoulder, making it look much lighter than in fact it was), and all that was left for me to do was to get it from the door to the bed frame. Easy. Back to the point: this mattress gave me the first comfortable nights sleep Ive had in months. In the two weeks Ive had it, Ive not [deliberately] slept on the sofa, and about 50% of the crunchy noises from my back and knees have disappeared (the other 50% are from the fact that Im no longer 18 years old, which is no fault of the mattress). 10/10. Would recommend.

To be fair I placed the order about 2 months ago and then COVID hit, everything got delayed including the delivery of this mattress. But I was okay to wait. I was kept well informed of the delay and prospective dates for delivery and it was really easy to re book when the slots opened up again. The driver who dropped it off was courteous and explained everything about turning the mattress regularly etc and maintained social distance at all times. Now lets talk about this mattress! What do I like about it? Everything its perfect for my 8 and 5 years olds bunk bed and they seem to love it. Ive tested it out too and its super comfortable. No pokey springs no noisy springs just a very comfortable mattress which feels like excellent quality and value for money. Its covered with this satin feeling top layer and that just makes it so much easier to slide the mattress protector on and off. Theres absolutely nothing I dont like about it. Im glad I got it! Would buy again and highly recommend.

I was worried buying this online because I had to trust some reviews rather than try it out myself, but im glad I ignored the negative ones - this mattress is by far the comfiest (for me) For someone who constantly says the floor is the most comfortable mattress, this is great! it is firm and hard so don't expect to be sleeping on a cloud - if you like firm mattresses with a tinyyyyyy bit of give - this is the one! I love a firm mattress because it means I don't sink into it and I don't wake up aching in the morning. (I used to suffer pain in my ribs and back with my previous mattress). despite these other reviews saying you can feel the pockets - I can't at all! (unless I literally feel them with my hands). its bouncy but not too much that the other person moves when you move - its perfect! delivery was nice and quick - I'm so pleased with this buy [accidentally wrote this review on the Morris traditional spring mattress - so if you've seen that review from me, ignore it!)

I tend to sleep on my front and I've always woken up with a bit of an aching back so when it was time to replace my old mattress, I was looking to find something more suitable. The Dreams site's mattress finder recommended a firmer mattress for front sleepers and the Turner Traditional Spring Mattress was one of the cheaper options (and it was on offer when I bought it too). I was initially hesitant when I got it because it was substantially firmer than previous mattresses I've had, but a single night's sleep put my fears to rest! The mattress is very comfortable - it gives a lot of support and the surface is soft and retains warmth well. I find I move around a lot less during the night now, which makes for a better sleep and it's equally comfortable on my front or my back. Delivery was fast and the recycling of my old mattress was a great hassle-free convenience. The delivery guys didn't even complain getting the mattress up the stairs!

This was the first time that I have ordered anything from Dreams. From the website layout I found what I was looking for very quickly, then the order process was very slick and easy to use. I was then sent a confirmation within seconds acknowledging the purchase and also all delivery details. On the day of the delivery I was contacted by the driver when he will deliver my mattress. The driver was spot on with the delivery time, He explained how he was going to bring the mattress in to the property while keeping a social distance. I had absolutely no worries regarding any contamination that could have occurred. All in all a great product but more importantly a great service to go with it. The mattress its self is a very comfortable, it was exactly what I need with a very good price.

I purchased this mattress to replace one over a decade old. I needed a new mattress as I have lost a bit of weight recently and no longer find it as comfortable to sleep on my side like I once did. Now prefering to sleep on my back. After going through the website and using the mattress buying guide I settled on getting a firm mattress. This one had a great deal on it. It has now been a few weeks since buying this mattress. I'm glad I did. It provides great back support and through a fitness tracking watch I've been using it has shown that the quality of my sleep hS improved. I'm able to get to sleep quickly and wake up feeling refreshed. Very pleased with my purchase. Worth every penny

At first the mattress seemed hard to me, but after the first night, I had the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. I guess it was just new, and my old one...well, it had seen better days. A new mattress was overdue, it seems! Delivery was bang on time, and the two chaps that delivered it were friendly and jovial, and when I suggested that they could leave the mattress in the hallway and I'd deal with it later, they insisted on taking to exactly where it was going to save me the trouble as, and I quote, "They're very used to manoeuvring these into small spaces, let us do it...it's no trouble" Couldn't have been better.

This mattress is extremely comfortable, being neither soft nor too firm. Due to bad back and neck problems I was advised to change to a medium mattress and use only one pillow. Horror!..but I did just that. The return policy after 30 days is a boon for the anxious. Ill not be returning this mattress. I sleep now nearly the night through and wake for the first time without neck pain and a much happier back. Great value and very well made. Its a not a flip over mattress, just rotate head to tail every month or so after initial first month where I think they advice it weekly. Would totally recommend this mattress.

I hadn't realised how worn out my old mattress was and it was only last year when I started getting lower back pain every time I went to bed that I decided it had to be replaced. I am so glad I visited the Dreams store and had a quick trial of the Turner Traditional Spring Mattress and knew immediately it had just the right level of support for me. Typically the lockdown meant a delay in receiving the mattress but it was well worth the wait as I am so much more comfortable and no more back pain which is a great relief. The quality of sleep is also very much better so when I wake up I feel properly rested.

The best night sleep Youll ever have. I had what I thought to be the comfiest mattress in the whole world so was reluctant to change it but after my better half insisted the search was on. I had some quite specific requirements that I got from the label of my existing mattress (firm, sprung) and the Turner came up tops. This mattress is sooo comfy, and in this current heat so much cooler than memory foam, I still cant believe the price! Ive tossed and turned on mattresses 10 times the cost, an absolute bargain. Dont think twice, you will not find better.

We wanted a fairly hard mattress at a fairly low price, e.g. not pocket sprung mattress but standard springing. This fitted the bill and we are very pleased with it, it is very comfortable and also it doesn't, as another mattress we bought for our guest bed does, capture splinters from the bed base (despite the base having never splintered in 25 years of use). I would recommend it to anyone seeking a good bed at a good price and in addition delivery was free. at one place we looked delivery cost half the price of the bed, totally crazy.

How do you know which way up the mattress should go as it is single sided?

Answer: Thank you for getting in touch with your question. You can ensure the mattress is the correct way up by referring to the label - if the writing is the right way up on the label then this is how the mattress should be placed. If you have placed the mattress so the writing on the label is upside down, the mattress needs to be turned over.

Hi, I have just purchased a Turner mattress, which side of the mattress is the top and should be slept on?

Answer: Please refer to the mattress label. The writing on the mattress label should be the correct way up, this will indicate which side of the mattress is the sleeping side. If your label is upside down, then you will need to turn the mattress over.

Is rhis best suited for a solid or sprung slat frame please ? Thanks

Answer: This can be used with a solid or sprung base, depending on your preference. Solid is best if you prefer a firmer, solid foundation whereas sprung slats offer a more cushioned support. Thanks, Dreams

I have an orthopedic king size mattress and looking to get a new one. My normal sleeping position is on my sides, and I love a firm mattress but your website states, "that you'll need plenty of cushioning, soft or medium". What's the compromise option?

Answer: Where possible we would advise to visit your local store to use the sleepmatch machine to help find the mattress that will be most supportive for you.
