What Makes It Great

My last bed was a supersized king divan style base with an orthopaedic mattress which I had for the last 15 years and it was a bit too large for the flat I moved into a few years ago so thought it time to change over to a double. I have always wanted a chunky wooden framed bed with a nice soft mattress & finally decided to take the plunge and ordered a frame off the web in the same style as my other bedroom furniture and then started looking for a mattress that I liked and found this one Dreams which sounded just right. I can tell you after spending 15 years sleeping on what might as well have been a rock the new mattress is like sleeping on a cloud. The mattress gives me a tremendous amount of support, yet it has a nice soft finish to it that I just sink into when I get into bed at night. It is beautifully finished with handles on all four sides making it easy to rotate even though it is quite a heavy mattress. My only wish is that I had spotted the Moore Wooden chunky bedframe on the Dreams website before I had ordered the frame that I did because that looks a lot sturdier that the one I bought is. I do have one small problem though and that is that it isn’t only me that has fallen in love with the new mattress, so have the cats who spend the bulk of the day relaxing on it and get a bit disgruntled when it comes to bed time and I have to get into it but they soon find their way back onto it when they think I have fallen asleep. So it seems that it isn’t only me who now get a great night’s sleep on my new 6500 DNAir mattress! But prehaps I should have gone for the king size to accomopdate all of us.

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

No More Back Aches

Having suffered with back/neck problems for years and in need to replace our bed, we tried out several mattresses that Dreams recommended to us. Having tried out all the recommended mattresses my wife found this one gave her the comfort she was looking for, and I found it gave me the level of support I needed. After having slept on the mattress for a few nights, we found ourselves getting a very good nights sleep, but more importantly for me, I get up in the mornings not feeling stiff and sore. What is also good about it is that if either one of us need to get up during the night, we are not disturbing the other ones sleep.


Still not sure

We received our bed last month and were hoping for an amazing difference from our old worn out mattress. Although we are sleeping well we feel that it’s taking some getting used to. Initially the mattress seems to have a lot of give in it but I guess this is due to the number of springs in it. The sleep position is level and my wife who suffers from poor circulation in her legs isn’t getting the same pains in the morning so I guess it’s helping. I think part of my worry is that the mattress has that comfortable half worn feeling already and that it won’t last, but given the guarantee given I don’t need to worry.


So comfortable...

We bought a zip and lock mattress because my wife and I have different requirements (she prefers soft I prefer medium). The premium we paid was worth every penny because we know have two beds in one and both of us are happy! We are both genuinely staggered about how comfortable this mattress is, after trying expensive memory foam mattresses in the past it is so much cooler and far more supportive. I have lower back pain and it has reduced significantly in the last 3 weeks. Goes to show... you get what you pay for and the fact this is a hand made British Product has made a huge difference.


Our best wedding present!

I was a bit sceptical when the Sleepmatch thingy identified this pricey mattress as the best one for us. But deciding to invest the last of the cash that we got for our wedding in this mattress was a sound decision. My lower back pain has disappeared and I’m sleeping well for the first time in about 4 years. (I even set my alarm 5 mins early now so I can start my day enjoying being comfy - cheesy but true!)


Flaxby Mattress

I bought this mattress 23/12/19. One side is soft for me . The other side is medium for my husband . The mattress handles at the side so it is easy to lift. It is zipped down the middle. I was a bit worried I would feel this, but neither of us can feel this. The mattress is excellent quality. It is very comfortable to sleep on. It is the best mattress I have bought.


Most comfortable mattress

I bought this a few weeks ago and delivery was really fast. The mattress is able to be bent slightly which means that it was really easily transported into my bedroom. This is the most comfortable mattress I have had. Had a great nice sleep! Will surely recommend it. Great thing is I found it in clearance so was a really good affordable price.


Excellent mattress, so comfortable

We bought this mattress a month ago after using the in store mattress selector, which suggested we purchase a medium to firm mattress to suit our needs. It has proven to be a really good buy, so comfortable and just the right degree of support, not too hard or too soft. We are both really pleased with it and would highly recommend it.


Great support!

We bought this bed a month ago and decided to go for the Super King - best decision ever! The mattress is "medium" in firmness but offers such great support. This is our 2nd Flaxby bed and definitely not our last, despite being on the higher end price wise and which is reflected in the high quality feel of the product.


Best mattress we ever bought

Very comfortable, no feeling of falling out if lying close to the edge. And I don't get bounced around when my husband turns over! Mind you, it is the most expensive mattress we have ever bought - but we are worth it! You are in it for at least a third of every day of your life, get the best you can afford.


A great life lesson

I’ve never thought that half of my problems to fall asleep were because of my mattress. After Dreams’ mattress assessment I could find the best mattress in the market that meets my needs. I’ve learnt that there are certain things in the life that give us life quality, good sleep is one of them


Fantastic nights sleep

This is the most expensive mattress I've ever bought and worth every penny. It was comfortable from day one and for the first time in years I've woken up with no aches or stiffness. It has to be rotated each week at first and it's quite heavy for one person to do but the handles help


A quality product

Been using for a couple of weeks now, a touch stiffer than our last mattress, but getting a good nights sleep. It will apparently work it’s way in which I hope will take some of the stiffness out. You can tell that this is well made and I am sure we will have yers of use out of it.


Better night sleep

The mattress is giving us a better night sleep, not sure if we should have gone for the soft mattress we decided to go for the medium. It is early days so the mattress is getting use to our contours & shape. It is certainly a great improvement compared to our previous mattress.


Slowly getting comfortable!

We’ve had this mattress for a month & it’s just starting to feel comfortable. Felt much more like a firm mattress than a medium mattress for the 1st few weeks. We’ve also had to change our pillows to gain total comfort. Was hoping for more considering the huge price!


Great night’s sleep

I have had this mattress for the past 3 weeks and my sleep has improved immensely. I used to toss & turn on my old mattress but this new one is so comfortable that as soon as my head hits the pillow I am asleep. I wake up refreshed & ready for the day.


Great sleep

I Purchased the mattress 3 weeks ago the salesman was helpful and knowledgeable as were the delivery team. The mattress is really comfortable and can honestly say I'm now having a really good night's sleep no more stiff back in the morning; wonderfull


Like sleeping on a feather

I ordered this mattress to ease discomfort and sleep deprivation following abdominal surgery. Wow. What a difference! I feel like I am floating as I drift off to sleep. The comfort this matress provides is worth every penny.


So comfy

We tested several mattresses in the showroom which had been recommended but this showed such quality. After about a week, it started to shape itself and is so comfortable, and we are experiencing really good night sleeps.


Excellent Comfortable Mattress

I bought my mattress 2 weeks ago having been assessed on Sleep Match in store. I’m delighted with my new mattress. It was the perfect match for me as my back pain has disappeared. So great to wake up pain free.


Nothing like the in store sample

I have had this for the 30 days recommendation to ‘bed in’. It’s so hard and uncomfortable, There is no give in the springs. I’ve been back to store 3 times to be sure but it’s nothing like the sample. Avoid


Unbelievable comfort

Didn’t intend to spend as much as I did on a mattress but once we tried it nothing else matched up. Have never had such a comfy nights sleep ever find myself going to bed earlier just to enjoy the comfort


Super King Super Comfortable!!

Bought this mattress 3 weeks ago and it’s amazing! I’ve had the worst back problems and was struggling sleeping but since this arrived I’ve had the best nights sleep in an age! Worth every single penny ??


Extremely well made mattress

We have only been sleeping on this mattres for two weeks up to now. But so far absolutely lovely to sleep on. Made a big difference to our sleep pattern and waking up more refreshed .


I can finally sleep in comfort

I bought this a month ago and since it arrived I have finally been able to sleep well. Mattress is so comfortable and my shoulders are no longer hurting. Very pleased and well worth it.



At first found the mattress difficult to get used to after my previous one. I recently had an operation and now find it more comfortable that I would expect from a top quality product


Natures finest Mattress

Brilliant Mattress with all the support and comfort we need, took probably a week to get use to the change with the support but now really pleased and wouldn't go back to our old one.


Excellent quality and comfort

Love this mattress. Having suffered with constant pain in my hips, back and neck at night for years, i am now delighted to be pain free and getting great uninterrupted sleep.


Super Comfy

Laying on this mattress will be the most comfortable sleep you've had. The option to have it both medium and soft is perfect for couples who each like a different firmness.


Great nights sleep

We’ve had this mattress now for two weeks and had the best nights sleep for years! To not wake up hurting and aching is an absolute joy. Only wish we had bought it sooner



I bought this mattress about a month ago and am so impressed. It’s fantastically comfortable. The quality is excellent and I’ve had the best nights sleep in years!!!


Incredible comfort

Very impressed by this fantastic matress; sleeping so much better, wish I'd bought one years ago.Love that it suits both of us, my side being softer and so comfy.


Really comfortable.

We get a great night’s sleep. Initially worried that it was too firm after our old bed but no problems. Gives great support and no aches or pains in the morning.


So so comfortable

We waited too long to get a new mattress, now I find I want to stay in bed rather than get up out of what I have realised was uncomfortable bed.


Comfort Level

The mattress looks quite nice. It is however too soft for me and I have been experiencing some back pain since I started sleeping on it.


Firm but comfortable

I purchased new bed and mattress for spare room. Have only tried out the mattress and it would appear to be satisfactory.


Suits us both

Overdue for mattress change, lots of choice but choose this one after many tries and help from Dave in Norwich Dreams.


Perfect mattress for me

So glad I bought this mattress, was more than I intended to pay, but so glad I went for it. Much better nights sleep
