What Makes It Great

Without a doubt the worst mattress I have ever owned. Initially found the mattress to be comfortable but after a month the mattress developed a huge dip (bear in mind I am only 10 stone) and became incredibly uncomfortable. Started getting back and neck pain, fast forward 3 months and the mattress has been reviewed and classed as faulty by Dreams. This was then replaced with a second identical mattress (huge mistake and fool on me for trusting the mattress to be fine)... Again initially comfortable but after a month has started to dip and starting to get back and neck pain again. Will be deemed faulty again in a few months and I cannot wait for that day so I can be rid of this awful mattress. There is a clearly a fault in the mattress design, virtually every other review is screaming about the mattress dipping. Why is dreams still selling this god awful product?! It is also worth noting that the first mattress was sold rolled up, and the second was sold flat. I was told by Dreams that they now sell the mattress flat as it has rectified the fault (Yes, they literally admitted this mattress design has a KNOWN FAULT), however exactly the same problem has arisen. I implore you with all my heart that you do not buy this mattress, however comfortable you think it is at first, it will only end up brining you months of pain!

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

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.

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

Memory foam is without a doubt much more comfortable than many other types of filling offered while being able to offer both support and a rebound effect that encapsulates your body

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

Just what you need with a mattress. Beathability is what is needed in a good mattress

How many springs does a double mattress have ? 

Answer: Hi , Spring count for this mattress is 1426. Kind Regards, Giedre

is it hypoallergenic?

Answer: Hi Sophieatdreams, Yes, it is hypoallergenic. Kind Regards, Giedre

Hi I’ve bought the mattress! Can I take the mattress cover off and launder it normally or dry clean it? It has a zip so it looks like you can remove the cover and wash it. But I don’t want to damage the fabric or risk it shrinking. Please advise! Thanks 

Answer: Unfortunately although the mattress cover has a zip, it cannot be removed and washed. The purpose of the zip is to ensure that the cover fits correctly. Kind Regards, Dreams

we have a super king raspberry mattress, the mattress is 3 months old and already has permanent dips where we sleep. I am 12 stones and my wife is no more than 7.5 stones. How do we even out the dips as they are very uncomfortable?

Answer: We apologise that you are experiencing problems with your Hyde and Sleep Mattress. We would recommend that you contact our customer service team on 0800 652 5090; they will be able to help here. Kind Regards, Dreams

What’s the difference between standard mattress and rolled ?

We recommend ordering the rolled mattress if you have a particularly narrow or spiral staircase or if the room where the mattress will be placed is hard to access. Kind Regards, Dreams

The picture shows with 2 x pillows, do they come with the mattress

Answer: This mattress does not come with any pillows, therefore the price advertised refers to the mattress alone. If you would like to purchase these pillows additionally, they can be found online or in store. Kind Regards, Dreams

Avoid buying this mattress

We bought this mattress under a year ago and regret it so much. It’s the most uncomfortable mattress ever. Both my partner and I wake up with back pain every morning. It took a while to choose this mattress but the sales lady in store assured us that this mattress was a good quality mattress. The mattress sinks in so much when you sleep on it and holds that shape so if you move around in your sleep you keep sinking and cannot get comfy. Ive even contacted dreams about it and had someone from home serve out to look at it and was told that it can sink in by up to 2cm in the first year and that it acceptable. I’m now having to save up so I can buy another new mattress (never from dreams ever again) and bin this mattress which isn’t even a year old! If you want a mattress that will lose it’s nice firm shape and sink in which is massively obvious when you look at this and cause back ache, then this mattress is for you. I would however, recommend you avoid this mattress like the plague!! If I could give it 0 stars, I would!

So comfortable, its so sleepable and amazable

The staff in the Burnley store were very easy to talk too and really give you the chance to try out each mattress. As so as we laid down this Hybrid mattress I know it was the right one. It was so lovely to relax on, fall asleep on and easy to get up and down from. The mattress was ready to take and with it being all wrap up and ready to go, we took the opportunity to take it there and then. Instructions were to leave the mattress for a good few hours to settle and raise to its form and it did this within a reasonable time. The softness of the mattress really makes you want to just lie on it and not get back up. We have not looked back since buying our mattress, there is not the noise of springs anymore, just sound sleepness from us both....:)

Best mattress

I bought this product a while ago because my was hurting. My old mattress was old and lumpy, although I had a foam topper which made it bearable. The raspberry is a mid range pocket spring/ foam firm mattress. It provides a good level of comfort without paying thousands of pounds. It’s top layer is squishy and the bottom is supportive. My favourite thing about it is if my partner gets up in the middle of the night, the whole mattress doesn’t move, meaning I don’t get disturbed. My least favourite thing is the thickness makes it difficult to stretch a fitted sheet across. That said, it’s such a minor thing that I don’t think it matters. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is put off by tempur prices. 5 Stars all round.

Incredibly comfortable

Although immediately incredibly comfortable I've given 3 stars because: arrived with damage to outer plastic packaging and marks on the mattress. Exchange agreed without trouble however we've only just (after 4weeks) completely got rid of the chemical smell that is a feature of memory foam mattresses. Exchange arrives in a couple of days and so we'll have to go through the whole process again. There are signs that the current mattress is beginning to 'give' in the middle. It's now less firm compared to the outer areas subjected less to the weight of us sleeping. Hope this doesn't crop up with the replacement and that our 100 nights starts again when it arrives so if it does we can seek a better alternative.

Not lasting quality and not for a slatted base

We've had this mattress for just under six months, it was bought with a slatted ottoman base which we were 100% assured suited the mattress. Turns out it doesn't. There's a huge ridge down the centre of the mattress from the bed base which essentially means the bed "humps" in the middle by a good few inches. My husband and I find that we are constantly having to sleep on the outer edges of the bed and the mattress is already showing signs of sagging from this. Online reviews (on sites external to Dreams) rate these mattresses poorly, wish I had seen these beforehand. Also, I'd like to see in store staff get better product knowledge as this mattress is quite clearly not suited for a slatted base.

Worst nights sleep ever

After doing some research into modern mattresses, I liked the idea of a memory foam/spring free one. The overall reviews were positive, so I took a risk and purchased the Hyde & Sleep Raspberry mattress. I was so looking forward to getting into bed that night, for a decent sleep.... After a few hours tossing & turning, managed to have the most fragmented, uncomfortable nights sleep ever. The mattress is so warm and stifling, bearing in mind we had slept on it during a cold, winters night. God knows how anyone could sleep on this in the height of summer. It's a well-made product, I can't knock that, however, my girlfriend and I couldn't get along with it.

Could not believe it could be so bad

I bought this mattress on 7th August 2018 and due to family problems then was away for almost 6 months. My wife and I found the mattress most uncomfortable as a mountain appeared in the middle of the bed preventing turning over. Had we been able to try out the mattress properly after purchase we would have returned it but on inquiring were told we were too late. When purchasing were told it was identical to the Silent Night mattress we wanted to replace but this is not in the same class. Any one thinking of buying this product should be very careful. We have now saved up ( being retired) and ordered a replacement form another supplier.

sags after less than a year

Bought in March 2018. I weigh 11.5 stone and my wife much less; this mattress felt fine and held its form for 5 - 6 months, but since then it has become very uncomfortable; troughs have formed on both sides of the bed where we lie. We can feel the wooden base of our bed on our hips, but the centre of the bed is still high and firm; like a ridge in the centre (ie where we don’t lie). Having informed Dreams and sent photographs of the state of the mattress we have been promised that we can buy a new mattress from them and pay the difference. So Dreams have looked after us. NB: at the DREAMS shop, the sales team were nice and helpful.

Initially OK but, sagging badly now at 2yrs

After the initial 'chemical' smell following unpacking this WAS a comfy mattress. However after about 6 months sagging became evident. This continued and at just under 2 years (from an expected life of 8yrs for a mattress) there is significant sagging on both sides of the mattress, making it uncomfortable. Apparently this is common with this type of mattress! Not something I was expecting after 10years with the last, conventional sprung mattress (which cost significantly less than this did). Very disappointing. Not recommended.

Too firm for little people

Bought the Raspberry Hyde and Sleep because I thought I needed a firm mattress. Its very well built and feels luxurious when lying on your back. HOWEVER - I'm a side sleeper and just a few weeks after we went over the 40 day period, I developed chronic hip pain, which affected me all day. Myself and my wife aren't heavy people, so we don't sink into the mattress and there is no "give". So we don't have a fault with the mattress, suTest each mattress thoroughly before you buy and only get a firm mattress if you're on the heavier side.

Great product!

I bought this some time ago and it really is a good mattress. My only issue is that when I tried the mattress in the shop it seemed to be firm to medium. I was so excited because this is what I was looking for. Unfortunately, what I received was an extremely firm mattress very difficult to sleep on. I was about it to arrange a return but decided to give it a try. After some days, it is either I have used to it or the mattress needs some time to be so soft as it should. Now, it is very pleasant to sleep on. Very satisfied

Hotter than the sun

Bought this mattress in January and loved it at first. Previous mattress had become very springy and uncomfortable so decided to go for this one as it has a memory foam top layer to protect against springs. During the cold January nights it was lovely, however as soon as the weather has got slightly warmer (and it’s still only February), the mattress gets extremely hot within about 30 minutes of going to bed. I’m now writing this review at 05:22 as I’ve been awake for about three hours because of it.

Excellent quality

This mattress is quite film, but I am used to a film mattress as my previous ones have been. If you are not, you may need to consider purchasing the medium. Excellent quality, I purchased super king size to go with the Camolin Metal Bed Frame I also purchased from dreams. The mattress is 10 inches deep. You can see by just looking at it that it is a good quality mattress. It should last me for years, as it comes with a 10 year warranty, which is fantastic, as they say to change it every 8 years

Best Nights Sleep Ever!

My girlfriend and I have different needs when it comes to a mattress, she has a bad back and I have a bad shoulder, as well as other things, the Hyde and Sleep Raspberry met all these needs and more. I had the best night sleep I’ve had in years and even managed to have this rare thing called a lay in. Would highly recommend to anybody with aches and pains from old injuries etc.


My mattress is now 4 months old and has cost me nearly the cost of the mattress again in Physio appointments due to the back pain it causes. The mattress has sank despite weekly rotation and sometime more frequently. Mattress has been inspected by Homeserve who have confirmed it has failed, just waiting to see if Dreams offer an alternative

Best- mattress - ever!!!!!!

Comfortable and relaxing mattress – highly recommended! I have never slept so well as I do on my new mattress – it is really really comfortable and can take varying weights. It’s so comfortable my two-year-old has decided to re-locate him self into our room! Definitely worth the money and the purchase.


Have slept well on it from Day 1 (two weeks ago). My husband is having a few problems with it due to ongoing back and neck issues but I'm hoping after a few more days he may get used to it. However we have the reassurance that if this does not improve we have the option to try another mattress.

Best mattress ever!

This mattress has changed my life. I havent slept well for so long due to issues with my back, since having this mattress though I have slept like a baby every night. It offers so much support and is great value for money. I love it. One of the best purchases I have made in a long time.

Comfortable support

A new mattress was recommended and we selected this for its features. It was firmer than we expected but after a few nights softened up and is very comfortable. It stays cool which is a very good feature. It does have an odour which is taking some time to fully disappear.

Great but not for long

We bought this mattress and at first it was amazing. Felt completely refreshed after a great nights sleep. A a month or so down the line it's sagging, not holding its shape and after having a person out to inspect it today we are one in many who have experienced this .

Doesn't last

Great at the start. So comfortable and supportive. 12 months later it caves in. The memory foam doesn't bounce back. You're left with holes of no support where your body just sinks into. Looking online many more have had experiences like this

Poof... My backache has gone

We went into the store and the computer recommended this mattress.. Wow what difference even my fitbit showing better restful sleep and my 3-4 years of back/shoulder pain has gone in 3 weeks.. Best decision ever. Thank you dreams

Terrible mattress

I've never had previous issues with back pain but within a week of owning this mattress i was suffering severe back pain like never before, two huge dips were we sleep and no support whatsoever. I advise to stay clear!!

Awful Matress

I bought this and have emailed Dreams to complain! The mattress is soft and sagging in the areas we sleep already after only a few weeks this isn’t acceptable. I have had no response to my email to Dream’s either!

Great mattress

I bought this a couple of months ago and it was delivered a month ago. Ever since I’ve had it I’ve had such a better night sleep. It’s firm which is how I like it but it does mold to your body. Definitely recommend

Very comfortable

We have had the mattress for over three weeks and think this is the best that I have had over a lifetime. The memory material supports us in a good sleeping position and the quality of sleep has never been better.

Very good investment

I bought this about a month ago and my husband and I are really happy with the quality of the mattress. It is very comfortable, the right firmness and right size for us. Would definitely recommend the product.

Great mattress, long delay on delivery

So far, this mattress literally has been a dream. Very comfy, much easier to get up the stairs to the bedroom, and the bedding that came with it is also excellent. Just a shame it took a month to arrive.

Very comfortable!

I bought this mattress 2 weeks ago and I am very happy with my purchase. It is a very comfortable product. I love the name of the mattress...hyde and sleep :) it matches exactly with the feeling.

Absolutely appalling

Had first mattress replaced within 6 months, central part didn’t hold firmness. Replacement 2 weeks old... going to reject under sale of goods act for doing the same thing Very poor quality

Very comfy

I have suffered with a bad back for years so decided to buy this mattress several weeks ago. I can honestly say my back has never felt better! The mattress is a lovely depth and fabulously comfy

So comfortable and matched to both of us

This was matched to both of our sleeping profiles and we have been so comfy. It’s worth spending money on a mattress, it’s helped us unwind from the stressful first house purchase and moving!

So comfortable but firm

Before I had this mattress my back was regularly in agony. Now my back is as good as new. This matress is really comfortable yet firm enough to support my back. Never slept so well

New Matress

Very happy with my new matress, as my husband has a bad back I needed to have a firm matress and this having the memory foam top suit both of us would recommend

Extremely comfortable

I have back issues and wanted a new mattress to help cope with the pain. This mattress is perfect. Is very comfortable and my back has and continues to improve

Amazing, relaxing and very confortable

My son loves his new mattress
