Overview

becky says

The Mattressonline Horizon Odyssey 800 is the only mattress you'll need. It has a 14.5cm pocket-spring core and two layers of foam, making it the perfect combination of comfort and support. Combine these features with an additional 2cm of memory foam toward the top of the product in the comfort layer and you've got yourself a fantastic little trio combination that will delight customers.

The new Horizon Odyssey is almost identical to previous iterations but with a few key differences. Namely, this product, despite being slightly thinner and lighter, does seem to have a better pocket spring support that reacts to each body movement well with sufficient contouring

The cover is soft and durable but like most traditional mattresses that feature pocket springs, isn’t removable for washing meaning a protector is recommended to keep things hygienic and long lasting.

You can finally get the best of both worlds with this medium tension mattress that still has the added softness you crave. With a goldilocks tension that is soft to the touch and has enough sinkage to suit side sleepers, there's not too much to worry in choosing this type of firmness as this level of tension is regularly recommended as a "one side fits all".

What’s it like to lie on?

This mattress is designed to provide you with maximum spinal support. It doesn't matter if you sleep on your back, stomach, or side; this mattress will provide the comfort and support that your body needs. You'll wake up feeling refreshed, energized, and ready for the day ahead of you. 

When it comes to a mattress, you want a balance of comfort and stability. This bed does a good job of providing both. It has plenty of support to ensure it won't sag in the middle and is enough to not be too bouncy for those who need a more stable surface. It also does a good job of absorbing movement. So, if you have pets or kids or just find your partner tosses and turns a lot, this is the bed for you.

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.

Suitability

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

Performance

  • 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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

Odour

  • 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.

    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

What Makes The Horizon Odyssey 800 Pocket Memory Mattress Great?

Topped with a deep 7.5cm layer of sumptuous high-density memory foam

Memory foam offers body hugging comfort which us largely suitable for all sleeping positions and with superior motion absorption you'll find it easier than ever to get to sleep with a partner that tosses and turns during the night. Further benefits come in the form of good pressure relief with hypo allergenic properties that helps to repel mold and mildew while being resistant to dust mites.

Memory foam reacts to your body heat and contours to your shape

Memory foam is one of the most desirable and in demand comfort layers around, outperforming others when it comes to sheer desire. This foam was first developed with NASA and was first used for commercial applications shortly after. The soft and body moulding properties of this layer makes it very appealing to those looking for a weightless nights sleep. Be aware however that temperature regulation continues to be an issue with this layer, though there has been improvement in recent years with additional cooling solutions offered through select ranges.

Paired with a supportive and sturdy foundation of high-density base foam

Pressure-relieving and highly beneficial for your joints and back

Great medium-to-firm feel - a good choice for couples

A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

Beautifully soft knitted cover for maximum comfort

Knitted covers offer a good degree of breathability that helps keep you cool while you sleep which is also particularly important for hygiene. Knitted covers are also incredibly soft making the fabric an ideal outer layer.

The cover is removable and can be dry-cleaned

Removable covers help keep things fresh. The average person keeps their mattress for around 7 to 8 years and over time that can make your mattress a fairly unhygienic place to be. Thanks to the removable cover, you can sleep easy knowing that your mattress and your health, are protected.

Attractive circular quilted pattern - looks as good as it feels!

This mattress comes with a quilted cover. Many people overlook the cover as a need for consideration however, the right cover can add additional comfort and in the case of this one here, adds quilted comfort that offers a soft but hard-wearing cover that is both breathable and stylish.

Hypoallergenic - ideal if you suffer from allergies

Allergy sufferers often experience the problem of waking up in the middle of the night or having to get up in the morning with a stuffy nose and eyes. The reason why you wake up with a stuffy nose is because your mattress has accumulated dust mites, mould and mildew, all of which are allergens. The solution is a hypoallergenic mattress is made from materials that do not support mould or dust mites. They also have anti-microbial properties that effectively kill any bacteria that may come into contact with it.

Single-sided so there's no need to turn over

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Arrives rolled up for easier moving and handling

Rolled mattresses are delivered in a smaller airtight mode of shipping that saves retailers on shipping, storage and logistics costs that mean they can pass the savings onto consumers in the form of lower prices. The result means that you can often get a similarly specification mattress for less in rolled form which is fantastic news for those on a budget. With very little downside and positive experiences across the industry, there's plenty of great reasons to make your next mattress a rolled bed-in-a-box product.

Depth: 24cm

Most experts recommend a minimum 10 inches, 4 inches on the top layer and 6 inches for the core so this size is an ideal balance of size and performance. Generally, the heavier the load the deeper the mattress should be.

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

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.

Memory Foam

memory foam is one of the most well known materials used in the upper layer of mattresses. Memory foam basically contours to your entire body with moulding properties. Designed by NASA, this material rebounds to your touch and feels like you are floating on a cloud. Memory foam does not necesserily mean soft either, you can still have firm mattresses for those that want them with a bit of memory foam.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Removable cover

Removable covers are great. We don't typically replace mattresses for 7-8 years. That's a lot of body fluids and protectors and sheets can only do so much. To that end getting that extra layer of cleanliness goes a huge way toward ensuring you get longevity out of your product.

Hypoallergenic

This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

24cm deep

A depth of 24cm is about right for a good quality mattress. While the depth of a mattress is not necessarily a guarantee of quality, you typically cannot get the best comfort and suport out of a thin mattress

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Rolled-up

Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

Customer Reviews For The Horizon Odyssey 800 Pocket Memory Mattress

Based on 59 reviews

I know very well that it's too early to rate a mattress after only one month of use, but I couldn't help it, because it's just amazing. At first I thought it'd be better more firmy, but no it's just perfect. Cheesy downside: Makes it even harder to leave bed on a cold, dark December morning.

Very comfortable memory foam mattress. Sleep like a baby, best one I have ever bought. The delivery men were absolutely amazing and took the mattress upstairs for me, very kind. Wonderful company to deal with and the delivery men are ace.

Amazing mattress, very comfortable and supportive and lot's of memory. My husband and I are both sleeping really well and noticed the improvements on the first night.A great investment and wish I had done it sooner.
