The Hudson Pocket Sprung Mattress is one of the firmer tension ones we have reviewed which makes it potentially more of a specialist product depending on your needs. With 1000 pocket springs, this mattress ticks many of the boxes for what makes a good quality mattress with enhanced longevity due to its dual sided nature, allowing you to both rotate and flip your mattress giving twice the surface area for sleep and settlement to occur. Pocket springs work far better than other support structures, beating off reflex foam and open coil bonnell springs in their level of support while still proving affordable and long lasting.
The comfort from this mattress is highly regarded, you only need to look through many of the reviews below to see that people find it offers a fantastic night's sleep thank to it's high GSM fillings which will provide you with a soft layer on top which compliments the firmer base layer nicely.
One thing to remember though, is that this is a firmer mattress than average making it ideal for back sleepers and those that suffer from back pain. If you are a side sleeper with a smaller frame and no history of back pain, we would perhaps suggest a softer mattress as you may find the firmness to be otherwise uncomfortable.
This mattress, like all in this particular range, are all handcrafted by expert craftsmen to ensure you get the best product possible with the best set of materials. The mattress itself has a long history with Dreams, being an adapted and improved variant of The Orchard Mattress which was also a best seller.
The mattress also features an impressive double sided layer, this means that this product is turnable which might prove a little bit of a pain, but the result is that you get twice the surface area with which to sleep on, giving you additional longevity and better comfort for years to come.

Reasons to Avoid
Since firmness is subjective, we do have a few customers who have reported that it wasn't as firm as they had hoped.
Reports that the Hudson may soften over time which is great for those who initially find it too firm, but not ideal for those who relish the firmer feel. This isn't uncommon in that mattresses will tend to soften ever so slightly as settlement occurs, typically within a tolerance that won't be too noticeable though.
