The Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress is an upgrade on one of our previous top-rated mattresses known as the Insignia Ashdown mattress. Fabled for it's great price relative to components, this is one of the better performers in the new line-up from The Dreams Workshop which is one of Dreams internal brands that produces for the company.
What’s Inside the Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress?
What's really encouraging to see in the industry is this drive toward good-quality pocket sprung mattresses, I'm finding less and less need to reference open coil and poor reflex foam components as more and more retailers move toward better quality spring systems. This Holman Pocket Sprung mattress is no different, offering up a healthy 1600+ pocket springs in a king size and more than enough for your body to contour against, giving you the great night's sleep that you need.
This Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress is also double sided which is great to see from such a low price point. Effectively you get twice the surface area of support by ensuring that the top layer is featured on both sides of the mattress. It might sound redundant but it means that you can actually flip the mattress as well as rotate, ensuring the mattress has increased longevity while ensuring better settlement.
Onto the fillings themselves and it looks like there is a plentiful amount included, I was unable to get actual GSM measurements but from a brief flurry in the showroom, it seems to have a soft cover and noticeably deep fillings, both ideal for those looking to pair the support of the pocket spring system with a good comfort layer.
Where is the Holman Pocket Spring Mattress produced?
The Holman is part of a bigger corporate strategy from the popular bedding giant, Dreams. This brand is internally produced meaning you won’t find it for sale elsewhere. This mattress and others like it are handmade using traditional methods combined with latest technology in its factories in Oldbury, West Midlands.
What customers liked about this mattress
Reviews for the Holman mattress are good, with many positive reviews to the tune of over 700+ at time of writing, accompanied by an excellent 95% consumer satisfaction which shows a huge confidence level for those that are purchasing. Many of the positive reviews talk about the firm tension offered by the product, which has helped to improve the quality of sleep for customers that had or were suffering from back and joint pain to now enjoy a more relaxed and restful experience throughout the night. Thanks to the roll together protection of the pocket springs combined with that tension, there are those in the reviews that have experienced less roll together and find the entire product to be comfortable and supporting.
What customers didn’t like about this mattress
There are a couple of negative reviews that correlate with the tension on offer with many saying that it is too firm for them. This all goes back to subjectivity over what is considered firm in one person's eyes relative to someone else's and isn't necessarily a slight on the product itself nor the quality on offer. For those that do find the mattress too firm beyond expectation, Dreams have a 40-night sleep guarantee that will give the purchaser the ability to return and swap out for a different product. This is hugely confidence inspiring and should mitigate the risk of purchasing online.
The Holman Pocket Sprung mattress is available in all popular sizing including the typically-absent small double size. rarely available, the small double is ideal for those with a small guest room that cannot adequately support a full sized double mattress but still needs rom for two people to sleep.
Reasons to Buy
Pocket springs at a low price point is something we can always get behind. The orthopaedic back and neck support that tend to come with firmer mattresses is clearly on offer here as indicated by the many strong reviews around this topic.
Reasons to Avoid
Guarantee is a little light, we've found many of the in-house Dreams brands to only feature 1 years guarantee and it's something that we would like to see increased. For now though, most manufacturing defects really do occur within that initial period from delivery and the end result to consumers is fairly low.
