What Makes It Great

We have had this Mattress now since November, we always used to like soft mattresses but then I had a baby and we co sleep and breastfeed. I ended up with a really bad back on my previous soft mattress so, after trying out loads around John Lewis, Bensons etc, we landed on this one which seemed to be good for price quality and firmness. Delivery was really good , the mattress had a tiny mark on it, which the delivery man noticed and he phoned the shop immediately who arranged to send another straight away. Quality customer service! The mattress has been incredibly comfy, it took around a week for me to get used to it but I haven't had a bad back since. Am very very happy with it. The only downside is you have to turn it once a month and it is SO heavy. Ok for me and my husband just about but can't imagine my elderly parents turning this. Hence the loss of a star.

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

Ensure that every single part of your body is moulded to your mattress by going for one with 3000 springs, all perfectly aligned and adjusting to every movement you make

What is the weight of this mattress in a double please? I have this mattress and have an Ottoman bed which has a weight limit of 60kg, so just want to make sure this isn't too heavy.

Answer: Hi , The double mattress is 31.6kg. Thank you for your question.

As well as turning the new mattress top to toe for the first few weeks, should this mattress be flipped over periodically too - or not? (I see this question has already been asked, but currently remains unanswered.)

Answer: When your rotate your mattress from head to toe we also recommend that you turn your mattress at the same time. So rotate and turn your mattress weekly for the first three months and then rotate and turn every month thereafter. Kind regards, Dreams

The mattress need to be only rotated head to toe or need to be flipped over as well??

Answer: This mattress is double sided so will need to be turned as well as rotated. Kind Regards, Dreams

Hotel quality

We bought this mattress in king size to replace an 8 year old mattress we had bought from dreams before. This mattress should have more five star reviews as it is amazing. Don’t listen to the bad reviews. We are sooo fussy yet from the first night we slept on it our quality of sleep was 100% improved. It is firm and to be honest when it was delivered I thought it was too hard but when you lay on it, it supports you in all the right places and doesn’t feel that hard. It is not rock hard don’t get me wrong. When you lay on it it gently sinks parts of your body so that your body aligns. Also we don’t get disturbed by each other’s movements. It’s the best mattress ever. Just like sleeping in a posh hotel.

Excellent Firm Heavy Mattress

We previously had a soft mattress , but after having a baby got a very bad back trying to nurse her in the night so we decided to get a firm. My after trying out loads we landed on this one which seemed to be ideal for price quality and firmness. Delivery was great. The mattress has been incredibly comfy, it took around a week for me to get used going from soft to hard, but I haven't had a bad back since. We are incredibly happy with it. The only downside is you have to turn it once a month and it is heavy. If you are elderly make sure you have a strong pair of hands to help!

So far so good

My wife and I visited the Staples Corner with the intention of buying a Silentnight mattress but we found this mattress gave the firmer level of support we wanted and was discounted at the time. On returning home I was concerned to see only two reviews online, one of which is very critical. We have now owned this mattress for nearly 2 weeks and have found it to be very comfortable and it has maintained its shape well. Hopefully this positive impression will continue.

Poor quality

We bought a bed in December and within a month it had to go back as the mattress had seemingly collapsed. We were told that the mattress was faulty so replaced it with the same but this one is worse. After one night there were body dents in the mattress and everyone we have shown pictures to said it looks at least six years old!!! Would I recommend, not a chance.

Excellent Replacement

I bought this mattress after careful consideration of my requirement and needs and I am very happy with this mattress.It is firm as I wanted it to be,comfortable as it should be and feel of luxury when you are lying on it.By now after about three week I feel I made the right choice and am proud of it.Hope that it will serve me for long time.

Very comfortable bed, very good advice and help

Needed to get a very firm, supportive orthopaedic mattress because of a back problem. The gentleman who greeted and assisted in the shop at Crown Point Retail Park, Leeds, could not have been more helpful in guiding us to the right choice. We have had the bed now over two weeks and it is wonderfully supportive, a very high quality product.

firm mattress

My wife suffers from back pain and it was essential we find the right mattress for her.There are many firm matressess advertised online. We tested out quite a few in the showroom but found this to be the the most firm and comfortable of the lot. My wife finds it comfortable and is not adding on to the pain in her back


Great service at Dreams shop at Crown Point - many thanks to Andy. Had our new bed for 3 weeks and it's brilliant - best nights sleep we've had in ages. One complaint, our legs are too short - we need a box to stand on to get into bed!

Such a comfortable mattress

I have been suffering with a bad back for many months and upgraded to this Insignia Charnwood mattress - the difference is unbelievable, it is so comfortable, my back pains have disappeared and my sleep quality much improved

Firm but fair!

We love our new mattress and look forward to going to bed as we get the best nights sleep. It's firm, supportive, feels great quality and is so big and deep! We paid more than we intended to but it was worth every penny.

Firm yet comfy

I bought this mattress a month ago as my partner has a bad back and our last mattress was too soft. Don’t be put off by the price - you definitely pay for what you get with this mattress and I would highly recommend.


I bought last month and i not happy because the mattress is very firm .I can't sleep very well. I try. to exchange but must wait for another one about 5 weeks. I am very disappoint.

indentations where body has been

this item was replaced by a new one. we were told to turn regularly which we have been doing and still has been sagging where we sleep. we are only light weight people.

Love the firm support

Great nights sleep. Good support. The height from the floor with the thickness of the mattress on a divan base makes it the perfect height to step straight out of bed.

New Mattress

Bought a new Mattress due to the fact I couldn't handle the heat that was created from my old one. Went back to a sprung type and the difference in sleep is incredible

Excellent mattress and service

We bought this mattress about a month ago and it has proved most comfortable. We were impressed by the efficient delivery and collection service.

Incredibly supportive

Sleeping has never felt so good. It doesn't sag in the middle and provides me with the comfort and support that I need for a good night sleep.
