becky says

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.

Additional Information

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.

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.


*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress Great?

1600 pocket springs (King)

Anything over 1500 pocket springs in a mattress is going to offer enhanced roll together protection and ensure that every part of your body is sufficiently supported. The 2800 quoted here might be a little overkill for most peoples needs but it's certainly very nice to have

Double sided with deep layers of luxurious fillings

The benefit of a double sided mattress is that you can both flip and rotate the mattress. This means that settlement of springs and fillings occurs preventing any sort of dipping or discomfort. By being double sided you have the benefit of extended lifespan, representing great value

Tufted mattress with soft touch cover

Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.

Comfort Grade - Firm

If you find yourself suffering from back pain then you may want to look at an orthopaedic (fancy word for firm) mattress like this one here. Firmer surfaces put less stress on muscles while sleeping which might be exactly what you need to help your back

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

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

About The Dreams Workshop

The Dreams Workshop has been hard at work since 2003 and is a long established production arm of the ever-popular Dreams Beds retailer. Each mattress created under this brand is hand-crafted to perfection by the master craftsmen inside their factory in Oldbury. 

Deep layers of luxurious fillings

The fillings are part of the comfort layer, this sits above the support layer. The deeper the fillings, the more separation between you and the springs/foam that sits below. 

Double sided - Turn regularly and rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

A double sided mattress has the comfort layer on both sides with the support layer sandwiched in the middle. This setup allows you to both flip and rotate the mattress allowing you to benefit from twice the surface area of comfort, improve settlement of fillings and increase the longevity of the sleep area on the mattress. All great things.

1 year guarantee

1 year guarantee is typical for the industry. This means you are guaranteed to have a trouble free experience for the first year or have your product replaced

Made in the UK

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.

Customer Reviews For The Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress

Based on 685 reviews
Firm enough, price really jumps up and down. Happy

Had this for 3.5 weeks now. Was deciding between this one and the insignia bedgeberry as I wanted a very firm supportive mattress. this is certainly firm enough and I find it very comfortable. Id say the only downside is when you sit on the side of the bed i.e. Putting socks on in the morning - it sinks quite a lot. So if you only tested the bed by sitting on it you'd think it was a soft flimsy mattress. However, it's not - lying on it it's super supportive and feels pretty firm. so far so good have only slept on it by myself (king size) so can't say if noisy or bouncy with another person. Also it was up for 699 in store but the day after I bought it, the price dropped to 569 so I spoke to dreams and they promptly refunded the difference. Don't be pressured to buy coz of the "deal" there's always a deal on! It's currently up at 1399, so the price really does go up and down. Worth the buy so far 100x better than my last memory foam mattress and seems to be helping my low back issue. It does have deep pockets by the way but that doesn't bother me, some may find it annoying. I love it so far just hope it lasts and doesn't indent!

Initially skeptical, was pleasantly surprised

I went into my local Dreams store with the idea of buying a replacement mattress. Having slept on a rather firm mattress my whole life, I was under the impression that I needed something softer to help me sleep and fix some back issues. So when I went in and explained what I wanted, I was initially shown this mattress and it didn't wow me. It felt way too hard and I was looking for something softer. Well, after almost 2 hours just laying on mattresses with some of the most helpful, patient staff, I finally gave in and tried out their sleep-o-matic where I was assigned the same mattress from before. I laid down on it on my back, and just let myself relax. For a brief moment my back pain just... disappeared. It's a fantastic mattress, and I got it on an even better deal. So if you're curious, just go into the store and just lay on it and let yourself relax. You might be surprised with what this mattress does for you, too. I've been using it for the last couple of weeks, and it's honestly the best mattress I've ever laid or slept on, I can't recommend it enough if you're looking for a nice, firm mattress.

Best mattress EVER!

This mattress has changed my life. I've gone from tossing and turning, getting hot and cold and having to get up 3 or 4 times a night to basically waking up in the same position as I went to sleep in! It's natural fibres allow me to stay the perfect temperature for me. I suffer from chemical allergies so buying a mattress was a worry for me but I've had no reactions at all. Once I'd aired it for just an afternoon, it was good to sleep on. No noticeable chemical odours. It was an investment but one that I'm so happy I made! The customer service at the store was brilliant. I was helped by Russell in the Dundee store. He was informative and kind and extremely patient!!! He literally helped me choose the mattress of my 'dreams'!

Great Service

I ordered a mattress on line after putting in my sleeping position and getting a recommendation of type. I ordered the mattress and I have to say that Dreams have been excellent through the whole process. I booked my preferred delivery date and have been kept informed at every step, even down to being notified of a two hour window. On the day within the allotted time, the delivery guys contacted me to let me know they were 20 minutes away. When they arrived they checked where it was going, covered their shoes and delivered to the room of my choice. No fuss, no hassle, no stress. Great service Dreams. Having now slept on my mattress for a couple of months I am having the best sleep ever. Thanks and well done Dreams!

Recent purchase of a Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress

The mattress replaces a previous Dreams mattress which served me for eight years satisfactorily. It arrived as planned and friends have placed the new mattress in the first floor bedroom and will remove the old mattress to the Chichester waste disposal centre today, I am eighty-one years old, single and live alone. I have some back trouble and I chose the firm texture. I have now become accustomed to the level profile of the bed and it is proving comfortable and I have been getting a good night's sleep. I live in West Sussex in the Bognor/Chichester area. I did get offered an advantageous purchase price with a good reduction on the basic price when I ordered the item prior to Xmas. Clive P. Willoughby.

No backpain here!

Wow what a comfortable mattress! We already had the ancester of this mattress; the Insignia Ashdown, and needed another mattress for us as we intended to use the Insignia in our guestroom. I initially wanted to buy another Insignia Ashdown as it was so great but couldn't find it on the dreams website, so I was over the moon when I read the blurb on this matteess saying it is an upgrade to it. I sleep so well on these mattresses that no other bed has compared, and having donated our old Insignia mattress to the guest bedroom (and keeping the shiny new Holman for ourselves), I'm so pleased both us and our guests can get a quality nights sleep.

Possibly the best mattress I've ever slept on?

My wife and I purchased this mattress after we tested ourselves on with the Sleepmatch technology offered in the Farnborough store. After being matched with a certain firmness (firm) we were recommended this one by the ion store team and safe to say it's been the best bed I've slept in. My wife is currently pregnant and finds it nice and supportive. After waking up I experienced no aches or pains in my back either so it's nice and supportive for me too. Because of the amount of springs in the mattress it also cushions the wobble created by another moving around in bed. Overall it's perfect!

Amazing dont read bad reviews

Bought this mattress in store.i have been sleeping on it one week and wow. the best matress I have ever slept on. I was told by the store it takes 30 days to adjust and expect a little pain whilst getting used to it..I have had the opposite I have joint issues and back issues.. I for once wake up without pain and spring out of bed like an 18 year old. No more stiff legs walking down the stairs in the morning.. no hip pain or back pain and no tossing at night..no nothing .just an amazing night's sleep everynight.I recommend this mattress evin at this high price well worth the money .

Good for the back!!

Have had this bed for a few weeks now & can thoroughly recommend this bed for comfort & in my case, back pain. This was a replacement for a memory foam bed which was a bad buy for me as it didnt give me the support I need. This mattress is so comfortable & quite thick which lets me step out if bed rather than having to pull myself up as I did with the thinner memory foam. This is the most Ive spent on a mattress but was money well spent as it has certainly improved the back pain I have experienced over the past years which clearly proves is the right mattress for me

Instant relief

Having had my previous mattress longer than we are advised and it being classed as 'soft', I was surprised to be recommended a 'firm to very firm' replacement. However I needn't have worried, from the first night, I have slept better, felt completely comfortable and not awoken with the usual aches and pains that would result from even a short night on my previous mattress. Even though this new mattress is much firmer than the saggy old one it replaces, I had no problem adjusting to the change. I am very happy with this new mattress.

Amazing support

I never thought I would find a mattress to match the comfort of mine but after a fire at home I reluctantly had to get one, I now have the most comfortable and supported mattress ever, I have never slept better from the very first night I no longer woke with aches or headaches, I can't believe what a difference this mattress has made to my sleep, as a side sleeper it supports me in all the right places and I wish I had gotten it sooner, I highly recommend this mattress to anyone needing a perfect night's sleep x

Buying and using the mattress.

The man that sold me the mattress was very nice and he took the time to find me the correct mattress for me one that suited my needs. I was very impressed with him he is a good advert for Dreams and I have recommended people to go to the store for mattresses. The mattress is wonderful and very comfortable, I am not really concerned about the spring how many etc I just want a good nights sleep and this mattress delivers that. Sooooo comfy and supportive fantastic thank you.

Best nights sleep even for a colic newborn

I have had this mattress for a good few month before my delightful boy arrived and I have been happy with the support and comfort. but I mistakenly put my son next to me and now he won't sleep anywhere else.. I mean I have bought 3 new next to me mattresses, tried putting him in his big crib even in my arms all he does is right the sleep.. but as soon as I put him down on my bed he is out for 4-5h and for a 5 week old who has such bad colic its amazing!

Hotel Mattress

After making do for a long time, we finally decide a new mattress was long overdue. I have cervical stenosis and a prolapsed disc so was hesitant. We used the in-store mattress tool which picks the best mattress type for you and we bought what it recommended. The mattress is firm, supportive and feels like we're at a hotel it is so comfortable. The sides are firm so it doesn't feel like you might roll off which was my concern. Thoroughly recommend.

Comfortable mattress

Dreams spent time to check our requirements and we used the in store machine to check our requirements. We were then shown several mattresses suggested to us. They were a range if types and prices. We were left alone (with a drink) to try each one as many times as we wished. I have a spinal issue and this one seemed perfect. So far it. Has proved to be very comfortable. Also, the fussiest person in our house, the cat has slept on it from the start.

Exactly as I hoped for

After years sleeping on a medium firmness mattress and experiencing lower back pain, I decided to switch to a better quality firm mattress in the hope of improved posture and less stress on my back. This mattress is perfect, its high quality and the firm variant is firm but not to a point where its like sleeping on a plank. My back pain was homeboy within two weeks, wish I had changed sooner. I also got this on sale which was a massive plus.

Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress

Oh well, what can I say? Definitely no faults so far, I hope this continues to give me the same comfort and awesomeness that I have been enjoying since day one from delivery. My five-year-old has not left my Bedroom, because she too, has noticed that it is a brand new, new feel, more sophisticated Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress. Definitely a recommendation for Family and Friends and other prospective customers. Thank you Dreams Team!

Goodbye to sleepless nights !!!

Goodbye to sleepless nights and back pains. Wish we visited Dreams earlier to end our nightmare. Such a simple task to make, just like making the first baby steps. The staff was very helpful and assisted us in making the right choice ( no force selling ). Making the right choice is somewhat daunting at times, but not this time and it's made in Britain (GB) so buy British for quality and forget about wasting your time looking elsewhere.

Best service ever

The whole shopping experience with dreams was so easy,the store staff so helpful & going out of there way to help us find what we wanted, tthe bed we wanted was not on display but the sale's man was so helpful & answered all our questions & back it all up by showing us everything we needed to know on his computer. The mattress we bought was the next 1 up from the 1 we already have but they still showed us it so we could try it out

Perfect comfort and support

Took me a while to settle on the mattress with trying at least 5 others but really glad I settled on this one. It offers tons of support for my back after an injury and it super comfy at the same time, cant fault a mattress that helps my back heal. All in all Im very very happy with it and would thou rally recommend to anyone that needs or likes a firm matters. It had a soft covering in top which adds to the comfort level.

Great so far, sleeping/waking feeling much better

Great so far, firm but top has just enough give and soft and breathable so having a comfortable nights sleep and waking without any more back pain from previous foam mattress, this will need turning very 2 weeks and does need to be turned over once a month too which should rest mattress in the more used areas so hopefully will last longer than other (mainly foam) mattresses that can't be turned over


Please Guys out there go and purchase your mattress from any Dream store you will never regret it, I have been having serious pain on my back and under my abdomen but after getting advised for what I needed being sleeping like a baby so comfortable no back pain no abdominal pain ever please see them in Dreams and purchase your mattress I have been using my mouth for friends since I got it beautiful

So comfy

I bought this a month ago and was worried as to wether it would be as comfortable as my old mattress but it has exceeded my expectations. Its firm but not hard just giving the right support for my back. I wake up feeling refreshed after a good nights sleep. I wanted a mattress that I could turn over rather than rotate which this one does and its not heavy to move like most of them are nowadays.

No more grumpy morning arguments

Amazing nights sleep, after a week of use the pain in my and my partners back, has greatly improved. The support this mattress offers is perfect and I highly recommend saving there sleep testing machine to find your prefect mattress too No more waking up in the morning and snapping at each other. This mattress has saved our relationship and from one of us doing time. LoL

Very comfortable

This mattress seemed a little too firm at first but after a few days became the perfect product. I've been sleeping so comfortably since getting this mattress, very please thus far. It does however seem like it definitely needs the weekly rotations in the beginning as it already appears to be settling in the places my spouse and I sleep, hopefully rotating does the trick.

Great Mattress and great service

I love this mattress. It was my third attempt at buying a mattress after the first 2 left me with more back pain. I decided to go and see what dreams had to offer and they were super helpful, knowledgeable and patient whilst I made my mind up. I left confident this new mattress was the one. I'm I'm glad to say I was right! It's so comfortable I'm really happy with it :)

Great nights sleep!

I took delivery of my new mattress a few weeks ago, Id bought a cheap one previously to get by but my back flared up again. The Insignia Ashdown has been a joy, my back has now recovered and Im back to a restful nights sleep. Staff were really helpful in Dudley store and the 50 Percent Bank holiday offer helped to. Delivery guys were great in and out with no fuss.

Dont let Xbox choose your mattress!!

Following the advice in store by the sales rep after using the machine that matches you to the type of mattress that suits you I bought this. Im not happy with it as its much firmer than anticipated and not comfortable for me as a fibromyalgia sufferer. I would not advise anyone using that daft xbox powered machine to make such an important and expensive decision !!

Great comfy mattress

We were in need of a new mattress quickly before our new baby arrived. Delivery of the mattress was brill and the staff in the store were very helpful. Cant fault the mattress, we went for firm as I need support for my back. Very happy with the quality and although we now only get about 2 hours a night sleep because of our new arrival, this mattress is perfect.

Mattress and customer service

Great firm mattress. Ive just swapped from a mattress in a box to this as I found the foam based mattresses way too hot (I hadnt realised I was a hot sleeper). I live by myself and can just about manage to flip and rotate this by myself. Dreams were great too, great service on the phone ordering, delivery drivers were lovely, had been great all round really

Dream of a bed from Dreams

A wonderful sleeping experience. Haven't slept so well in years. The mattress seems to move with the contours of the body for a perfect nights sleep. Got this item in the sale, absolutely perfect. The delivery staff were fantastic, no complaints hauling a heavy mattress up two flights of stairs. Unwrapped the mattress and took away all the waste. First rate.

Delighted with Holman Pocket Sprung

Item is beautifully made and superbly comfortable. So pleased with it - sleeping better since switched to this mattress. Whilst this is a 'Firm' mattress, I judge it to be 'lower end of firm'; very pleasant if you're slim/bony but just a bit too soft for front-sleeping. Dreams ordering/delivery v efficient and delivery guys were very polite/friendly/punctual.

Superior mattress

I suffer with arthritis in the spine and other joints,. Dreams recommended this off their bed analysis. I have to say it is absolutely lovely. I've had it now approx 2-3 week's and the pain during the night and especially the morning has lessen significantly . It is such a far superior mattress and much better than the memory foams I've had in the past.

Just brilliant service

Just brilliant service, I got a phone call from the store to remind me of the delivery date and if I needed to to put it back, as I was waiting for a refund from John Lewis on a faulty mattress we bought from them. The Mattress we have had for a month and are flipping it every week as advised for the 1st 3 months. So far its lovely, but time will tell!

Holman mattress

Fabulously comfortable, well padded top, deep mattress. My sleep has improved since it's delivery. But I did expect a slightly firmer edge all around, hence only four stars. Delivery was very efficient and two polite men who took their shoes off before going upstairs with it very helpfully took the plastic packaging away with them, thank you.

So comfortable!!!

We had previously purchased a memory foam mattress (from a very well known brand) due to all the brilliant reviews. I absolutely hated it and struggled to get a decent night's sleep. After having this mattress for around 3 weeks, the difference in unbelievable. I am sleeping so much better and it really is extremely comfortable. Thank you!

My mattress

We have only recently received our mattress and first impression is very good. It is firm, as we like, and comfortable to sleep on. When you turn or move the bed always seems to support you and you dont feel each other move thereby not disturbing you. I would recommend this mattress and look forward to seeing if it continues in this manner.

Fantastic all round

I bought this bed one week ago and we love it already. It finishes off our bedroom fantastically and the storage is great! The design is brilliant and it is a very sturdy bed. One thing I will say is once it is built it is very hard to move due to the weight of the bed but with a storage bed that is what you want to know it can hold plenty.

I love it!

We had our old matres for 10 years and we decided to get a new one. Went to Dreams in Oldham and tried a few different ones. When we lied down on this one we knew straight away that this was what we came for. It was great and we liked it even more than some of the more expensive ones. 2 weeks later I still love it. It's super comfortable.

good night sleep at last

we were looking for a firm mattress and this delivers. Firm but not that firm as to make it uncomfortable. We had been using a memory foam mattress for a few months but it gave us both backache, after one night on the Holman mattress the problem was solved, we both had comfortable sleep and did not wake wit the aches from before.

Good Night's Sleep

I recently bought a 5 ft Insignia Ashdown Pocket Sprung Mattress from Dreams. This mattress is thick, comfortable and firm and was recommended for my sleeping position. Dreams got it soooo right. I used to wake up with back ache but since purchasing my new mattress I have slept well from the very first night and no back ache.

Comfortable mattress

Its the best mattress you could ever sleep on. Even the baby is enjoying and loving this mattress. The baby and I sleep throughout and comfortable as I never use to sleep at night, now as I lay on this mattress I fall asleep and I have no more back pain anymore. This is a very good mattress to have on your bed. Well done!

Sleep time is a joy!

The day this mattress was delivered was the best nights sleep we had in a very long time. We were recommended a firm mattress for our aches and pains and glad we took the sound advice. Theres no roll together and the mattress stays firm right to the very edge. We also got it for a great price so all in all very happy!

Fantastic night sleep

From the moment I stepped into the dreams showroom in Leicester and I have been pleasantly surprised. The customer service I received and the delivery were second to none. When it comes to the bed and pillows they are exactly what I wished for. Highly recommend the Leicester branch (near stadium) and Dreams products.

Best sleep for years!

This mattress keeps me cool, is very supportive but not too firm. I bought it 4 weeks ago and have slept really well ever since which makes so much difference when Ive not had a relaxed, deep sleep for years. Im really happy with my purchase as, although it was more than I had budgeted for, its worth every penny.

Very comfortable mattress

Having suffered backache from my previous memory foam topped mattress, I was nervous about spending money on a new mattress in case it turned out to be no better. However having used the Ashdown mattress for 3 weeks now, I am very happy with it and it gives the right amount of support. No more memory foam for me!

New mattress

I had to change my other mattress as it was to firm so I had to have this one or forfeit my money which I think is very very bad ,so I had this one that was more money,its ok and I now have to put up with it,also its a bit lower than I'm used to, but I would say that this mattress is more on the firm than soft .

Perfect for both of us.

We tried dreams bed test which recommended mattresses that would suit both our needs based on our issues, sleeping positions and weight. This mattress was the second on the list and amazing value in sale as well. Had it 3 weeks and best sleeps I've had for years. We don't disturb each other when we roll either.

Fantastic and value for money

Absolutely love this mattress. We had a memory foam mattress previously which we were sure was contributing to our bad backs - so we decided to go for a firmer mattress and this one is amazing, and at a great price too. Best nights sleep we've had for years and our backs have improved already. Highly recommend.

So comfortable

I bought this mattress a few months ago being a fibromyalgia sufferer a good mattress is extremely important. This is a firm mattress providing a good level of support but is also not too hard. It provides me with the best nights sleep possible. I'd highly recommend this mattress hence the 5 star rating

Holman double pocket sprung mattress

The mattress was delivered earlier than scheduled with plenty of warning from the delivery driver. The delivery team removed our old mattress and unpacked the new mattress and placed it on the bed. The mattress itself is very good and firm which is a godsend for my back, would thoroughly recommend.

My new friend!

Only a few weeks into my relationship with this mattress, but already I can say I havent slept so well in a long time. It is my ideal level of firmness, and appears to be very well constructed. I will carefully follow the turning/flipping recommendations to ensure that it remains in good condition.

Brilliant mattress - great sleep

This is an excellent mattress. I am absolutely delighted with my purchase and when bought in the sale is brilliant value for money. Its a firm pocket sprung mattress which is exactly what suits me. This didnt not disappoint and was a great replacement. Great nights sleep would highly recommend.

Great mattress!

Fantastic mattress. I was looking for something nice and firm as I have got back problems and bad posture sleeping during the night would kill my entire upcoming day. As soon as started sleeping on this one my sleep and rest immediately got better and no more pain as well! Can't be more happier!

Beautifully supporyed

Wonderfully supportive for my bad back. Feel can relax completely and am supported. Equally it is a good high mattress and the edges are firmer than other mattresses I tried - which all helps when my back is bad. The natural fibres prevent it getting too hot too. Lovely comfortable sleep.

Fantastically firm yet comfy

I recieced the mattress almost 1 month ago and have found it to be extremely comfortable and yet firm so very supportive for my back. I had previously experienced months of interrupted sleep but not since taking delivery of this mattress. Extremely competitively priced and worth every penny.

Comfort at last

Bought this recently and very happy with the comfort and quality. Nearly didnt buy it because it wasnt cheap but now very pleased that we did. After seeing a TV program showing the difference between qualities of mattresses, we can appreciate the work that goes in to producing this product.

Holman pocket sprung mattress

My daughter loves her mattress very much. A really Good mattress. Feels soft when you sit on it at first but once you lay down it is very firm, comfortable and luxurious . Double mattress fit seems smaller when compared to another double mattress I have. Definitely worth the sale price!!!

Great product.

I bought this about a month ago and I have been very happy with this product. We chose a firm one and it is just the right firmness for us, not too stiff. It feels cool at night and I have not waken up at night because of the mattress feels too hot. Overall, I find the quality very good.

Great service

Great service in shop. Delivery great and very considerate men. Bed is so comfortable and gave had a great nights sleep ever since we got the mattress. So glad they were able to take away the old mattress as i had no way of getting rid of it. Will definitely be shopping at Dreams again.

Good quality for the price

It is a bit firm but very nice and lovely sleep. The delivery was on time and the guys very friendly and they kindly took it to my bedroom. Great quality for the price. The only down side is the edges that are very soft and you cant really sit by the edge of the mattress and bed.

5 Star, Great Friendly Staff

I am was very happy with the staff and how helpful they were. I purchased a mattress in your Livingston store. The delivery was the right date and time, and collecting my protector and pillows was very easy. I have been enjoying my new bed so far and plenty of good nights ahead.

Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress

Bought this to replace our 8yo mattress which had started to sag. Excellent choice. It gives really good support and have a good night's sleep. Having to flip it weekly isn't really a bind as literally takes a minute. I would recommend this mattress to those that like a firm one.

Holman mattress king size

A good mattress bought when on offer and so a fair price at the offer rate. Its firm but with some give. Ideally for me it would be just a touch softer so I would suggest Dreams made a medium / firm version of the mattress to get 5 stars. Good for sitting up a reading in bed.

Fantastic Mattress

I have had this mattress for just over three weeks and quite frankly, I have never slept better. Im a usual toss-and-turner and always attributed that to just the way i sleep, but since ive been sleeping on the Insignia, i tend to sleep all night and in the same postition.

Lovely Mattress and Quality Service

Lovely firm mattress, I have had this for just over 3 weeks and a comfortable mattress and supportive. Quick delivery and great instore help and advice when choosing before I ordered online at home. Delivery was easy, called before they arrived and very polite and helpful.

Insignia Ashdown Pocket Sprung Mattress - Medium F

Had this for nearly 2 months for myself and my 6"4 20+ stone boyfriend Has kept shape and support and really helps us both with.anh joint pains from previous mattresses Very fairly priced for the quality and quantity of springs Delivery service fantastic and friendly

Excellent mattress

We both like a firm mattress and this is so comfortable, was worried it was too cheap and wouldn't be that comfortable but literally feel like you are floating on this mattress. Excellent night's sleep and no more lower back pain, very pleased and would highly recommend!

Beyond my every Dream

John at Aylesbury Store was excellent gave loads of information re the beds which was good as we were in lockdown and couldn't go in store. The bed arrived on time and day given drivers very helpful. The bed mattress very good quality the bed frame fitted together well

Fantastic all round

We love the bed and the mattress it finished the room of nicely and we get a fantastic night sleep no more tossing and turning trying to get comfortable. The bed itself it's extremely heavy so make sure you have it in its permanent place before putting the mattress on.

Best nights sleep in ages

So pleased i bought this mattress. After a year of trying to sleep on a well known brand of memory foam i bit the bullet and gave up. Went to dreams and purchased this one which was a good price and have had the best nights sleep every night since. Thank you Dreams

Nice Firm Mattress

A very firm mattress, ideal for back sleeping, very supportive and comfortable. As a very hot sleeper I rate this highly for those after something to stay cool on. The only con is the classic button pinned surface that you avoid when getting something foam topped.

Excellent quality!

This is our 2nd mattress from Dreams and the quality of this mattress is brilliant! Its very good, high end quality and definitely worth the money. The only reason I didnt give a full 5* was the mattress is slightly firmer than I remember it being in the shop.


Im really fussy when it comes to my mattress. Im not a great sleeper as I suffer from insomnia but this is by far the best and most comfortable, firm mattress. I cant endorse this mattress enough. It offers incredible support without any loss of comfort.

Really comfortable but could we a bit more firm

This is the first ever mattress I've bought. I really like it, it's really comfortable. Sometimes when you sit on the edge, it goes down a bit more than I would like. I prefer firm mattresses, so that could just be my preference bias. All in all, good mattress.

A great sleep = a quality pocket sprung mattress

Finally back to getting a great night sleep every night - tried a foam based mattress when re replaced our old pocket sprung a few months back, but that was a disaster, the Dreams sleep test machine thingy put the Holman on our short list, and it is a winner!

Best mattress ive tried

I have back problems and this deep mattress is an absolute dream. its firm but not hard. i was begining to think my body wasnt suited to lying on my back as it was painful until i got this mattress. i can naturally sleep extremely comfortable on my back now

Excellent product and value for money.

Excellent value for money, extremely comfortable for people who love a Firm Bed. Many good nights sleep, excellent customer service and delivery prompt with the team being professional and courteous. All COVID distancing measures taken into consideration.

Fantastic mattress

Have had this mattress about 3 weeks now and absolutely love it. So comfortable. Have had the best sleep every night. Shop experience was great too. Staff were so helpful and knowledgable. Really helped with making our choice. Cannot rate it enough.

Great matress

I bought this 1 month ago as my need for a new mattress was long overdue. I am really pleased with it. I find it extremely comfortable and I have not woken with back pain like I used to. I have slept very well since using it so can't really ask for more.

Couldn't be better

A great mattress. Really comfortable. Took a couple of nights to get used to it. But I have sciatica and its really helped with that. We've only had it for a couple of weeks so I can't attest to quality over time, but so far we are really happy with it.

Firm and comfy

Lovely mattress. We have slept on it a week or so and are both very happy with our purchase. It is firm but comfortable. I like firm mattresses because I feel like they last longer and you can always pair with a topper to adjust to your preference.

Holmans pocket sprung mattress 10 out of 10

We were looking for a new bed and mattress and having tried a few we found this one and now have at home it's doing exactly what we want comfy had a quality night sleep since aquiring this mattress love it and payinh that little extra was worth it

Holman pocket spring mattress

Firm yet comfortable mattress. The finish is to a high quality and the side handles are very useful for turning. It is a little firmer than in the showroom but I suspect with usage it will soften. We hope to have it for many years to come!

A proper mattress can change your life

After 20+ years of sleeping on cheap mattresses, I'm so pleased I purchased a proper one! The change in my sleep patterns has been amazing! I can finally sleep through the night, uninterrupted! With proper sleep, I am less stressed at work.

What a brilliant nights sleep

This new mattress is brilliant. The use of the shops computer aided bed that gave us a list of mattresses that were comparable for us was a greta help. Never used it before. The sales person was excellent and the prices was very competitive.

Very comfortable and a massive step up!

After 10 years with our old mattress it had certainly seen better days. This mattress has surpassed our expectations of comfort and going to bed at night is something to look forward to. I wake up without the same backaches I was used to.

New mattress for pregnant partner

Very good quality mattress and the service from start to finish was out standing delivery was smooth and hassle free this mattress is just what the doctor ordered for my partner as she is heavily pregnant so supports her and our baby boy

Really comfortable

I bought this mattress a month ago after having my last one for 8 years and was really worried that it was going to take ages to get used to it - not the case it was really comfortable straight away and I havent missed a nights sleep.

Perfectly comfortable

Throughly love our new mattress! If you are a hot sleeper this mattress has to be considered. Firm mattress I now hardly even notice when my boyfriend gets up for his 4am wee and th mattress doesnt ping me out!! Haha! Great buy!

Perfect product perfect service

I bought this mattress to aid a bad back and i have not been disappointed. An excellent purchase which was made with the expert advice of Dreams staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this mattress or the amazing Dreams service!!!

Best Mattress Ever

This is a really comfortable mattress at a brilliant price. Slept better from day one. After a mistake from a competitor I was very wary but after great assistance I got exactly the right mattress for me. Thank you so very much.

Dreams are made in this store

Great store, well laid out. Store had plenty of hand sanitizer at different points. Store assistant spoke to us then left us to browse. We tried different beds which would be sanitized after trailing. Recommend 'Dreams' to anyone.

Very supportive

Great amount of springs makes it very supportive. Difficult to turn on your own as it weighs a lot, but after the first month, you don't have to turn it as often. Really comfortable and have slept much better ever since it arrived.


I love this mattress, right from the 1st night - perfectly comfortable! I have always enjoyed a firmer mattress but have slept on some that are rock hard. This one is the perfect combination of cosy comfort with a firm support :)

Mattress plus delivery

I ordered a firm mattress and I received a firm mattress so its going to take me a little while to get used to it. The delivery was excellent - very professional and the guys kept brilliant communication throughout. Thank you.

Great mattress

From the shop to delivery our experience was excellent, we were helped to chose the perfect mattress for us and we have been sleeping on it now for two weeks and I can honestly say its the best nights sleep I have ever had.

Mattress for our spare room

We bought this mattress for our spare bedroom which we only use when our daughters visit us. It seems a comfortable mattress when we tried it in the store but cant comment on what its like for spending a nights sleep on

Great mattress

Very comfortable bed, had the best sleep in this since Ive had it. If you like a firm bed this is great. Sleep the whole night through and not woken up by the other half when he is turning over. So glad I got this bed!

Good night sleep

This mattress is amazing. When we had our old mattress we had constant back pain! This one is like you are sleeping on a cloud. You should definitely have a think to purchase this particular one. The price is worth it.
