What Makes It Great

Supposed to be medium but it is very soft. However, very comfortable. Began to sink in after a few days and by 10 days this was apparent even with the cover in place. My hip bones were level with the mattress edge and getting out required thought. I am not a heavy guy. Felt like sleeping on a slope. Customer service very good and no problem accepting the independent assessors survey confirming the fault, agreeing to us purchasing an alternative, which arrives next month. So far ok having turned the mattress 180degrees and I’m getting a comfortable nights sleep, indeed I now like this half of the mattress! I was concerned about the pillowtop in the showroom and took an extended warranty for that reason. I also ignored the poor reviews, my fault, but will stick to normal mattresses from now on. Staying with Flaxby.

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

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

This spring system is exclusive to Dreams. However, the pocket spring is generally a very good spring system for a mattress and will give you all the comfort and support necessary

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.

A decent height for padding material representing a barrier between you and the springs that make up the core of the mattress. This type of mattress should be comfortable as a result of the depth of this soft and comfortable material

So many springs. Have your mattress adjust to your every movement. Every point of your body is going to be supported by an indivual spring unit that will be applying the exact right amount of pressure for the absolute ultimate support

Questions and Answers

Can I use a electric blanket with the matteress 

Answer: Hello, This mattress can be used with an electric blanket. Many thanks for the question.

My King Size fitted sheets are not fitting this mattress but won't a Super King fitted mattress be the wrong shape?  Can u please let me know what sheets go with these mattresses. Kind regards, Charlotte 

Answer: Hi , Our Flaxby fitted sheet should fit this mattress as it accommodates up to 34cm deep. If you are still having struggles, we would suggest using the Flaxby flat sheet. You can find both of these products by searching for Flaxby bedding in our search bar, or going to bed linen within bedding and filtering by the brand Flaxby. Thank you.

Not fit for purpose

We bought this mattress without reading the reviews, which was a mistake. However because it was so expensive we assumed it would be superb quality. After 3 weeks the mattress developed large dips where me and my wife lay, these were very deep and we are not heavy people only 10st and 12.8st. They were permanent dips that did not recover when we got out of bed, and there was a ridge down the middle. I think this is a design fault with this mattress as other customers have reported the same thing. To be fair to Dreams they did eventually change the mattress for a Hypnos which is much better.

Not worth the money!!!!

As you can hopefully see by the time of this review that I am not able to sleep!!!! This mattress is extremely uncomfortable and is 100% not what I would expect from an £1800 purchase. I took delivery of this on the 7th March and already the mattress seems to be out of shape and seems to have sunk in the middle. I got this along with the Alexander TV bed so you can imagine this was a substantial purchase. I am now waiting to hit the 30 day period in which I can hopefully take advantage of the 40 night gaurantee. I am extremely unhappy with this product.

Oh dear what a disaster

We broughtvthis mattress in February and thought over time things would get better as it bedded in. How wrong were we. We think this is the most uncomfortable mattress we have ever brought, not only that, but it doesn't fit the bed properly. It's to short and our pillows disappear between the headboard and mattress. The mattress feels saggy with high sides that push you into the middle. Would we recommend this mattress, absolutely not. Very disappointed and thinking of changing it to get a decent nights sleep!!

You won't regret buying this bed

I have had this bed for a month now and I love it. Even on the first night the bed just felt so 'right'. There was no need to get used to it like any other bed. It just seemed to be perfect from the very start. My wife also says she has never slept so well in years. It feels good to wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. The bed is pricey but we'll worth it and you won't regret spending the money. You can't put a price on quality sleep!

Bad sagging

I bought this mattress about a year ago and am very disappointed given the price paid. As other reviewers have said the mattress quickly sags badly where you lie meaning you end up feeling as if you’re lying on a slope. I’ve rotated as suggested in the instructions but this doesn’t work. Extremely disappointed and can’t afford a replacement unfortunately.

New mattress

We purchased this mattress for our bed and it is so high that I need a step ladder to get into bed each night. After our old mattress this one is fabulous it is a split top firm and medium a lot of money to buy but is worth it....only thing i would say they could make the info more clear for the split sides we sorted after a few days

Lovely mattress awful mattress protector

I bought the care package which came as a promotion with a free waterproof mattress protector. What a mistake! The protector slipped all over the place, it made me very hot and I stuck to it. In fact it put me off the mattress. When in desperation I took it off the bed and put an old protector on that I had, the mattress was fine.

Buyer beware. Comedy mattress

Awful sagging in the middle. Can't use the edges of the bed because of the terrible slope and height difference from the middle to the edges. I'm appalled and upset I've spent £1600 on a terrible mattress with obvious issues. I've posted my review preciously but had it taken off for some reason.

Lush Night's Sleep

The luxurious natural fillings in the pillowtop make for a sumptuous mattress and lush night's sleep. Worth the spend for the perfect mattress in both quality and comfort.
