Becky's Thoughts On The Johnstone Pocket Sprung Mattress

The Johnstone Mattress is an upgraded model of one of The Dreams Workshop’s previous bestselling models, the Rapley Pocket Spring Mattress and is pitched as being ideal for side sleepers. Personally, we feel this mattress suitable for those looking for a firmer feel mattress that is able to offer sufficient support and comfort while still being a reasonably priced product.

The Johnstone Mattress ticks a lot of boxes for those looking for a bargain, to start, the mattress comes with 1000 pocket springs, a decent number to ensure contourship of the entire body when relaxing and sleeping, but also good quality pocket springs rather than poorer quality open coil mattresses.

This mattress should be rotated regularly in order to ensure even settlement of springs and even wear


What Makes The Johnstone Pocket Sprung Mattress Great?

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

Comfort Grade - Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

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.

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

1000 pocket springs (King)

1000 Pocket Springs is considered a fair amount of support for a premium product, any less than this and you start to that find areas of your body are not getting the same amount of support as those with a higher spring count would achieve

Memory Foam layer

Something for the memory foam lovers. Who doesn't love a bit of sinky-floaty and supportive material designed to rebound again and again. Definitely the optimal for comfort in any mattress

Quilted finish with soft-touch knitted fabric

Easy to clean and maintain, this sort of fabric and finish is fairly common on mattresses and won't cause any issues down the line

Zoned support foam layer for side sleepers

Additional layer of memory foam

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

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. 

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

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.

Comfort at reach

I have purchased this mattress last month and I’ve been using it for 3weeks now since it was delivered. After a year, I finally decided to buy my own mattress, since I am renting a room, and bed provided is not that good - which we all know. Having this mattress is worth all the penny for me, because it’s comfortable and suits my preference for sleeping. Whenever I wake-up, I always feel so rested and I haven’t experienced any back pain - which I always experience from my previous mattresses.I think the shape on top of the bed and it’s memory foam layer adds more comfort and support during sleep. Which is so appropriate for me since I always feel tired from working all day at the hospital. Handling wise, it’s easy as it have 2 handles on the side for better grip and help in rotating and moving the matress. In terms of the price, it’s budget friendly as it’s not that expensive. The initial recommended for me was so expensive, but when I saw this and asked about the mattress, it’s almost similar to what was recommended and it’s perfect because it suits my budget too! Wise decision, isn’t? Comfortable and affordable! Specially for those who wants a good mattress but on a tight budget. In the future I’s like to purchase the same product or even the next higher one with good comfort too. I am beyond satisfied with this product!



I've been using this mattress for just over two weeks, and before delivery i became concerned by the memory foam topping it has (3cm thick and non-removable) also because, if for any reason you don't like it, you can't turn the mattress over and sleep on the other side as i've been told that this mattress is really single-sided. well, all that concern was for nothing. it's supposed to be medium-firm, but to me it feels like it's firm, but with a soft topping layer. the combination makes for the best sleeping experience i've ever had. in truth, i had no idea that you could even be this comfortable in a bed. I tried it out in the shop of course, and you should too, because even those few minutes i spent on it were enough to convince me to buy it over two others. however, that didn't quite deliver the same experience that spending an entire night on it would, tossing and turning, and stretching yourself over it. it's expensive, there's no getting around that, but consider this: on average, you spend about 7 hours out of every day in a bed, more than on any other furniture, which justifies your investment. honestly, this is definitely some of the best money i ever spent. if you're looking for a new mattress, then you owe it to yourself to at least trying it out.


Great Nights sleep

We purchased this bed with Mattress online after going in store to test bounce ( we all do the bounce test). The purchase via online was quick and easy plus we received emails keeping us upto date with the order. The evening before delivery we received a email informing of time slot. In the morning we had a phone call from the delivery Driver giving a more accurate time.. The delivery driver was very helpful and respectful. Now the bed & Mattress.. My wife & I have back issues. This bed is the Best Nights sleep we've had in years. It's a little firm at first but after a week or so you realise why your old bed had to go.. The pocket springs with the Memory foam on top is a good mix. The memory foam helps your hips and shoulders (if your a side sleeper like me). The pocket springs offers support without poking or stabbing you. All in all well worth it. To be able to sleep without having a Toss, turn uncomfortable night that doesn't just keep you awake but your better half also. We both still have back issues but that's medical and not down to the bed. When we wake the pain isn't caused by the mattress nor the base. I really hope this helps you decide if this is right for you.


My new mattress from Dreams

I have slept on my new dreams mattress for two weeks now and there are no regrets about this purchase, I visited other bedding outlets but am so pleased I was drawn towards Dreams. The environment in the showroom was so friendly and the salesman, I think his name was Mark, was obviously very professional in his job. He was very helpful with all questions and made me feel completely at ease. He explained to me the full extent of Dreams policy plus the delivery day and available times that would be suitable for me . Of course I ended up buying my beautiful mattress from you, why wouldn't I with somebody like Mark at the helm. I would happily recommend Dreams to any of my friends in a heartbeat. To have a new bed to offset this, would be a dream come true. Thank you once again Dreams. The delivery was exemplary also, well done Dreams, a great job and a thoroughly enjoyable shopping experience. Love Sheila Richards.


Getting a better night's sleep

Being a former professional furniture upholsterer for 20 years in the United States, I can attest to the quality of the headboard and divan base and I am very satisfied with the purchase. I just moved from the United States to join my new British wife who has lived in England for 54 years. We had been apart for about 1 year due to Covid-19 after getting married in the US last year. Once I finally arrived here, we decided to get a new bed and decided to shop at Dreams. We didn't even need to shop elsewhere since we found the perfect divan base, headboard, and mattress. The new salesperson was great as well as the more experienced salespeople. Everything went very smooth and we absolutely love the new bed. We definitely are getting a better night's sleep...not only because we're finally together but because of the quality of the mattress. We are extremely satisfied with our purchase.


Super comfortable and great service!

I bought this bed about about a month ago for a new flat. I have the exact bed at home and wanted to buy the same one as I was thrilled with how comfy it is. I have a divan base with sliding drawers which are very handy for storage and much easier than pull out drawers. I have the pocket spring mattress with memory layer topper and have also put a memory foam mattress protector ontop for added spring! It's incredibly soft and comfortable, and the advice I received when deciding on the mattress was very helpful. I had never thought to consider weight when buying a mattress! The delivery men were on time and good at keeping me informed of their arrival ETA. Couldn't fault the service from start to finish and overall very happy with my purchase.


First I hated it

I bought this mattress with a new bed frame that I also purchased from Dreams. I got the double mattress. The first few nights (maybe even as long as a week) I had some of the worst nights sleeps I think I have ever had BUT now after 2 weeks and I am now used to it it is an amazing mattress. It is so comfortable and feels like it gives me the support where I want it. It always has a nice warm feeling too making the bed feel nice and warm even if I have just climbed into it. Only down side now is it is always hard trying to drag myself out of bed in the mornings to go to work as I would rather stay in bed HA HA First class service from Dreams in the shop and also the delivery guys.


A life saver and a back saver!

Myself and my husband bought this mattress due to a house move and owning an embarrassingly old mattress. We were desperate for an upgrade and we weren’t disappointed with our Dreams experience. The sales advisor was helpful and content in making sure we got exactly what we wanted. As soon as we lay on the Johnstone mattress we knew it was the one for us. Order and delivery was super fast and we ended up with the mattress before our near move date which was amazing compared to other mattress companies we had looked at. Very happy with the mattress its so comfy and makes it really hard to get out of bed in the morning and really easy to fall asleep at night. Thank you Dreams!


Mattress is finally a year old!!

I bought this mattress a year ago and promised I would write a review as a review after 2 weeks isnt a solid enough reason to buy one. The mattress did smell a bit when I first got it but what do you expect brand new material to smell like? The mattress is still in brand new condition and has 10+13st on it every night. The only down side for me is that you cannot flip the mattress, only rotate but I have had no fault with it. The mattress does absorb heat so I find I'm hotter in summer so I just take the covers off and in winter it's amazing as it warms to your body. Hope this reviews gives answers to people who were like me a year ago!


Great for light/restless sleepers!

We've had this mattresses for about a month now and we're loving it! The OH is a very light sleeper and I'm an early starter myself so for a long time I'd always wake her up when getting up for work however now with this matress having individual pockets I can get up and she will stay sound'o The mattress it's self is on the harder side but in a good way its firm enough that you don't feel like you're on a inflatable but not so hard it feels like you're sleeping on the concrete! As you might say the "one in the middle" Super happy with the item and the sales people where fantastic and very understanding of our requirements!


Rapley Matress

Bought this matress when my one was giving me back problems. I wanted a medium firm matress that didn't sag when I sat in the edge of it. This matress was perfect. When it arrives it has a funny smell of product but this goes in a day or so and although I've read reviews stating that the 'smell is awful' , this is untrue. I've had the matress now for about 6 weeks and it doesn't smell. The matress is very comfy and I don't have back problems any more. The memory firm is just enough and the 1000 springs are perfect for a firm but comfy nights sleep. Would I recommend the matress? Yes!!! It is definitely worth the money I paid.


Wonderful mattress.

I have already bought one of these mattresses, and have found it absolutely wonderful. You just sink into it and it supports your back, and shapes into the contours of your body. It is so good, I have now purchased a second one for the main bedroom. I cannot praise it enough. Not only that, but I was very impressed with the sevice I got in the Truro Branch. The lady in there was very attentive and helpful. She even made me a cup of coffee. When I bought the second one, via the telephone, she came to my house to bring me the mattress cover, and bag to dispose of the one going out. I know now that I will always get a good nights sleep.


Well made and great feel

We went into a dreams store to purchase this mattress, went on their test mattress thing which tells you which mattress you should have. It gave us medium mattresses as a choice but i found the memory foam layer made the medium mattresses too hard. This mattress was the perfect mattress as it was softer but with the memory foam later it makes it slightly firmer which my partner likes. When I say firm it isn’t hard. I like the softest mattress in the shop but am very comfortable on this one. The other reviews worried me after we had actually tried it in the shop but I had nothing to worry about because it was perfect.


Magnificent Mattress !

Our old mattress was a disaster area . Lumpy .uncomfortable and like a rollercoaster to try to sleep on ! Time to go to Dreams ! .. and what a Dream it was ! We tried The Johnson Pocket Sprung Mattress ..What a difference - it was so amazingly comfortable , soft fabrics, great pocket springs - with a memory foam topping . Firm enough to slide into bed and instantly feel supported and safe . We loved it ! If only we had bought one sooner !! -and when we tried it at home - we were both in Dream land .. the best sleep we had had for years ! Thank you Dreams ! a five star sensation 1


So comfortable !!

I am so pleased I bought this mattress!! I have had the most comfortable nights sleep since purchasing, my back feels supported, the best consecutive nights sleep I’ve had for years!! the right amount of firm with the added topper feel, I am very happy with my bed!!! :) you will see from the picture, my mattress is on the floor, that’s because of the lock down and my frame ordered else where the factory is unfortunately closed. However this mattress is so comfortable that it doesn’t matter, I actually rather like it on the floor, as I said best nights sleep I’ve had for years!!


Incredibly supportive

Bought a month ago, very happy with the mattress. It is described as firm but it has a soft top layer meaning you sink into the mattress where it holds you well. Me and my other half both love it, and it is perfect for side sleepers which we are. We used the Sleepmatch service and it was excellent, would recommend to anyone Buying a mattress is always an investment but this one is totally worth it. I have been sleeping much better and no longer have back ache in the morning. Thank you to Kelly and the rest of the staff at the southend branch for their fantastic help!


Quality Sleep

Previously, I bought quite an expensive mattress but I was always having a light sleep which wasn't really helpful especially after sports etc. However, I decided to go for the Rapley as it was slightly firm. I can say since the day I slept on it - I haven't slept better! I now always get the deep sleep I require and most of all even if I lay down, I start to doze off. I now recommend this mattress to anyone who asks me. Money well spent - both Dreams customer service at Slough store and the delivery team was exceptional.


Perfect Mattress at a Perfect Price

We purchased this mattress for our eight year old daughter. Since moving into her new loft room, she has not come down during the night as she falls straight to sleep without any complaints. The mattress is so comfortable, and beautifully made with a bonus padded topper that moulds around your body, and you do not feel any of the springs underneath. Excellent quality for the price paid an well worth every penny. Mattress fully supports the body evenly so you do not feel you're unevenly dipping into the bed. Thank you Stephen


Excellent customer care and excellent product

We recently went to the Dreams Haringey branch where we were greeted by Tessa who was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us plenty of time to look around and was there to answer our questions when we needed her. She also offered us tea and coffee which was lovely. Overall we were highly satisfied with her excellent customer service skills. We purchased a mattress. The whole process went smoothly from placing the order till delivery. Thank you so much Dreams and keep up the good work. We will definitely be going back.


So comfy!

I originally bought a med/firm matress but found it too firm. I was still within the 40 day comfort period so I decided to change the mattress to the Rapley one. It has a lovely thick layer of memory foam and I was so delighted with how comfortable it is. I was often waking in the night with my old mattress and the medium firm one but ever since the exchange I am completely happy. There is no more pressure on my hips. I feel like I am being hugged when I climb into bed. I would not change this for any other mattress.


Comfy night sleep

I bought this mattress as our old one was very old and starting to cause me back ache. So went to show room and this one was on offer in a sale and the best one we tested out of a number of different ones. Since we have had it my backs not aching in the morning and me and my wife sleep better on this new mattress than the old one. As its a combination mattress it has the best of both mattresses foam and pocket sprung hopefully if I get 14 or so years out of this one like I did out of my old one it will be amazing.


Bedding experience

I came to Dreams looking for a new bed. The service I received from your senior salesman was exemplary. I was encouraged to try various beds once he established what I was looking for. Nothing was too much trouble and eventually I made a choice. The delivery process was equally good with texts received to inform me as to time of delivery etc. The men who came were very helpful, making up the bed and removing all packaging etc. Now I am enjoying restful nights on my new bed. Thanks Dreams


Great mattress

I bought this as our main mattress and also bought the Campbell as the spare room mattress. This mattress is far superior to the Campbell mattress in turns of comfort. Its listed as a firm mattress however the advisor in the store said that this used to be classed as a medium firm, which is why we chose it. I have to say it does feel more firm than the Campbell which is a medium but it's not as firm as some of the mattresses we tested in store. It's been perfect so far.


Great night sleep

On delivery one of the first benefits I noticed of my single mattress was the handles along the sides which made manipulation easy. This feature will be very useful when the mattress is rotated regularly to maintain condition. As a person who sleeps on my side the design of the mattress ensured that there were no pressure points to cause discomfort. I believe the memory foam and knitted cover of the mattress contributed to my comfort and great nights sleep.


Deluxe comfort without the luxury price tag

I purchased this after 3 failed mattress in a box experiences. I was able to lay on it in the shop and it felt just right, as Goldilocks once said. It had remained comfortable, no sagging or lumping. It’s not overly hot but snug to your body. I’m super pleased with it, especially as it is one of the cheaper mattresses on offer in the shop. Budget wasn’t an issue for me but this beat all of the higher end brands. Chuffed to bits with it!


Excellent mattress.

This mattress has helped my back considerbly, as I have had problems with my back for years. When you get in it it feels as though you are being carressed and all snuggled up. I also have a much more settled sleep with less moving around. It is the best matttress I have ever had. This is my second time I have bought this mattress, as I bought the same one for another bedroom about 6 weeks ago. Just brilliant, and worth every penny.


Lovely mattress

Let me start by saying i rarely write reviews but for this purchase i had to! This mattress is perfect, i used to have back pains but now they are gone, i never realised how much pain my old mattress caused me until i got this, its a bit pricey but trust me its a small price to pay for a good nights sleep especially considering how much time you spend in bed! i am so glad i brought this the quality and everything is spot on!


Best nights sleep in a long time

I purchased this mattress a few weeks ago during a bout of terrible insomnia caused by a highly stressful period in my personal life. Almost immediately I found that at night I was falling asleep quicker and even though I was still waking in the night I was returning to a sleeping state again within minutes as opposed to hours. I am now looking forward to the Christmas period when I can have some well deserved lie ins.


perfect combination of comfort and support

We selected this mattress as it was recommended following our Sleepmatch session in Dreams. It appealed as it had the layer of memory foam, which we were used to, along with the firmer pocket sprung support underneath. After a bad experience with a mattress in a box, this was the perfect antidote and we have both slept soundly on it since the first night. Only wish it was a bit deeper, but that's being really picky!


My third purchase of a memory foam/sprung mattress

I love these mattresses, really comfy and a great combination of spring and memory foam, they last forever too. I bought two king size originally for our bed and the guest room. Now the children have grown a bit, both have a king size bed and the existing mattresses. So we bought another divan with this mattress. It is so comfortable and the old ones are still like new - long life and very cost effective.


So comfortable

This mattress is amazing and I have recommended it already! When I move in the night, my partner doesn't wake up. It's super comfortable and whilst it took a few days for the new mattress smell to wear off, I now can't wait to get into bed at night and it's a struggle to get out in the morning. I'm planning on upgrading my bed frame within the next year and will definitely be coming back to Dreams!


Best mattress ever

I had struggled to find a mattress to accommodate my arthritic joints and spine injuries. I have found this mattress to be the best I have ever slept on - honestly! It supports me without being hard and the soft topping allows me to sleep on my side and wake without the painful shoulders or hips that I’ve had for years with my 3 previous mattresses. I have even slept all night some nights! Brilliant.


Better than some high-priced memory foam beds

We wanted to buy good quality new mattress for our new house and were happy to spend quite a lot on one. Without looking at prices, we tried a lot of mattress's and kept coming back to this one for comparison. We thought it was going to be one of the more expensive ones; given it is pocket sprung and memory foam top, but were very surprised that it was mid-priced. Now we're using it, it's great!


A lovely and comfortable mattress

This was a great choice as although the price was mid range I found it to be the most comfortable. Happy with it still two months down the line and at least you have the sleep guarantee from dreams. I have to also say I'm quite impressed with the service from Dreams and especially the delivery guys but also customer service. They are genuinely friendly and go out of their way to help. Thanks


Excellent value for money

Good value mattress and the comfort level was just right for me (medium). Got this for our guest room but due to a broken arm I have been sleeping on it (fidgety sleeping partner!). I am very impressed, my usual mattress is a Tempura. This is a very good value for money mattress. My only niggle (very minor) it that it would help if it had hand holds on the top and bottom not just the side.


Highly recommend - from a front and side sleeper

Solid mattress, love it. Would recommend. I sleep well, and it has helped with my back pain. It really supports my back and shoulders. This is a medium firmness, however was recently changed from “firm” apparently. Good price for what you get and in a King size. Delivery was top form, polite delivery drivers who took off their shoes before entering the home. Honestly, so happy with my purchase


purchase of two mattresses.

Purchase of two mattresses from Dreams in Irvine store,The two chaps that helped us choose what we required could not have ben more helpful. We had already used this store in the past for another king size bed and my wife and I have been extremely happy with comfort of said bed,thanks again. ps if am the chosen winner could you make it a 43inch TV please Regards, David & Sheena.


Great nights sleep.

We bought this mattress a month ago after I started waking up with an aching back. Initially we had considered tradional sprung mattress but instead opted for combination of spring and memory foam. It took a week for the mattress to settle but we expected that having been warned. Since then we've slept well and I have had no further back problems. Very comfortable and very pleased.


Very comfortable and fast delivery

I’ve had this mattress now for approx 3 week and it’s superb. It was delivered within a week of ordering, the guys who delivered it (and took away my old one) contacted me with a deliver time and arrived on the dot. They gave me information about mattress care. The mattress itself is firm and comfortable exactly how I like it, well made, great quality, and easy to end to end turn


Lovely & comfortable but great for the back also

What a difference a good quality mattress makes to a good nights sleep! This mattress is classed as firm but has a more medium feel to it with memory foam which makes it extremely comfy also, an excellent combination for a great nights sleep and a healthy back. Very happy with this product and purchase - would highly recommend, a great investment for your sleep and back.


Soft yet supportive comfort

I have had the bed for a week and my sleep has got progressively better as the nights have gone on. No more rolling about to get comfortable. Relaxed and supported my rest has never been better. The bed fits so well in my small flat where the extra storage has been a blessing and the headboard is comfortable to rest against whilst relaxing before sleeping. Thanks Dreams.


Brilliant for my bad back!

Lovely and firm but also soft and supportive. The thickness of the matress has added height to my bed which I like and find it easier getting in and out of bed now, although not all my bed sheets fit now! For me this matress has helped with my bad back and other health issues and I'm sleeping better at night. Defently worth the money and I'm very happy. Thank you Dreams


Excellent Quality & Very Comfortable

A very comforable mattress! Had a great night sleep even from first night with no more aches and pains like my old mattress. Its a very thick solid mattress so feels very quality for price. After a week or so of sleeping on it its settled and become MY mattress with no problems! Highly Reccomend (we actually bought two one for each daughter and they are both happy)!


Comfortable bed and good value.

I was looking to replace a double with a singe bed. After searching on line I visited my Dreams store just down the road. I had excellent advice and help there. The bed was delivered and assembled on time and I am very happy with the product. It is comfortable, it looks good, is easy to move and has two large drawers which slide easily. I am completely satisfied.


Money well spent

Had this mattress for 2 weeks now and my sleep has changed for the better. My back, shoulders and hips do not hurt anywhere near as much as they did before on my old mattress. This mattress is fab... has pocket springs and foam so it adapts so well when my side & front sleeping position. It wasnt cheap, but I do not regret this purchase one bit! Money well spent!


best mattress ever

I bought this mattress a couple weeks ago and so far I have no problems whatsoever, the first couple of nights it was a bit uncomfortable which I would expect becuase it's new but after a while it settles down quite nicely and very very comfortable. Though it's on the heavy side but there's no need to turn it. Am more than happy with my choice of mattress.


Very comfortable

I have been having intermittent back pain due to previous mattress being to soft! Went into dreams and was advised to try this mattress out. Both me and the wife knew the minute we tried it. We brought a new bed frame to with a built in ottoman and the additional storage is a massive bonus. The customer service was second to none and delivery was spot on.


Perfect sleep

We wanted a good mattress ,but didn't want to spend a fortune. In particular we wanted the height to be below 45cms ,it was 43cms-- perfect fit for our sheets. My wife sleeps on her back me on my side. This was a medium hard just about perfect. We've had it for a month now, and we are both happy. Afraid neither of us possess a mobile so no photographs


Great firm mattress

This mattress is perfect for people who need to comprise on a firm and soft mattress. We needed to find something that sat in the middle and this was great for us. It's not too hard or too soft and is excellent quality. It's big and so do think about that when getting bedside tables, we had to upgrade our tables so they weren't dwarfed by the bed.


Mattress of dreams !

Worth every penny, I slept the best I ever have for a long time on this mattress, it has the perfect amount of support whilst also being comfortable. As someone who’s pregnant with a bad back it’s honestly changed my life. I was so unsure about spending so much money on one (king size) but gosh I wish I done it sooner, best purchase I’ve ever made


A very comfortable bed

After trying out a few different mattresses in the shop, we were instantly in love with this one. It is firm but fair - I feel supported yet the memory foam layer is a fabulous cushion to sink into. A fortnight in, we couldn't be more happy with this choice. It is also a very reasonable price and much more comfortable than more expensive models.


What a difference.

After using The Sleeping Position Analysing Machine, the suggestion of The Johnstone D mattress and having slept on it for a couple of weeks now, the difference to my lower back pain, after sleeping has been very noticeable. I am so glad that I used the machine to see which mattress suited me, the staff at Dreams Gravesend suggested I use it.



I had this mattress in it's old version for 2 years and loved it. So when I moved into my own house I bought this upgraded version but in King Size and it's just the best. Pocket sprung means it reacts to your body movements but the built in foam topper just gives it that added level of comfy. It's a firm mattress but comfy just how I like it.


Best night's sleep in years!

I bought this about nearly a month ago (delivered early January) after my previous mattress of about 15 years finally gave up the ghost. My back was starting to ache and my sleep pattern was getting really disrupted with the old mattress. Since getting this new one though my back no longer aches and I'm sleeping so much better each night.


Lovely bed

Love this bed! Only thing that I would change is that there is only 1 pouch for the tv remote which lifts it up and down but a second pouch would be good for the actual tv remote and possibly an extra one for sky or whatever. Otherwise, love my bed can't fault it and would recommend it to anyone. Best price too compared to others out there!


Great Support

It's a lot to pay for a new mattress I thought nearly 3 times what my old one cost but Wow it's sorted all the issues I had with my old mattress (nearly 8 years old). Now with the new Johnstone Pocket Sprung Mattress, I get no hip pain, all the support I need when sleeping on my side or back, as a bonus it's helped with reducing my snoring.


Sleeping Beauty

Very impressed with the sales service. I trialled the sleep centre which selected the best type of mattress for me and my partner. We were then shown a variety of mattresses and chose the one we felt most comfortable on. I was kept well informed on the delivery time and the delivery men were very quick, clean and polite. Very happy overall


The mattress that makes me late for work!

I bought this about a month ago and it’s definitely an upgrade to my previous one. I’m not into full memory foam mattresses as I feel like you’re just lying on a very firm surface and there is no spring to it. This is definitely the opposite..not too firm and not too soft either. Every 10mins extra sleep is worth it in the mornings! Haha!


Warm and comfort

I bought this mattress a month ago and it was the best purchase I have made for a long time. I was hesitant at first to spend out on something which might not benefit me but straight away after my first night's sleep I was glad I had replaced my old mattress. Not only was it more comfortable it was also a lot warmer. Money well spent !


Amazing Mattress

I bought it 3 months ago, and I must say this is the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. It's really hard to get out of bed, because it is just too comfy. The springs give great support and foam makes it soft and cozy, a perfect combination if you are looking for a medium support Mattress. Definitely worth investing into.


Genuinely comfy and well made Mattress

I selected this mattress via Dreams mattress advisor. It has ventilation holes in the side to allow the mattress to breathe along with handles to assist in moving it. The mattress has a thin layer of memory foam on the top which really adds to the comfort, it was possibly the best night sleep I got in many years from my old mattress.


Best sleep we have had in years!

We went for the king size, cannot fault it. Used your online guide the help decided which type of mattress was good for us. With 4 in mind in our price bracket, we tried them out in the Bury St Edmunds store, staff very helpful. Delivery and set up chaps were very professional. We also use the bed recycling service which was easy.


Great mattress

We recently bought a house and part of that wanted to buy a new bed and mattress. I’d previously bought The Rapley mattress and wanted something similar, the online team were quick and helpful and let me know the Johnstone was the most similar in design to our previous mattress. It is so comfortable and perfect for us, we love it!


Great customer service

I brought the bed before Xmas and it's so much better than my old bed, the guys at Milton keynes were great, the bloke that served us was brilliant and it turned out it was his first day, must be a natural, I think his name was mazz,I'd defined recommend dreams to anyone, delivery drivers weren't amazing but they did do the job.


Great Mattress!

I bought this mattress about 3 weeks ago and I'm so glad I did. As soon as I lay on it, it was as though my back was aligning itself back into place! So comfy, great for side sleepers and I'm sleeping better than ever. Not too soft as I don't like a soft mattress but not too firm that you feel like you can't move and get comfy.


Cured my bad back

I bought this mattress after reading reviews as I couldn't get to a store, so I am giving some back. Really comfortable and soft but firm, it even assisted with my dreadful morning back ache. I put this down to a new mattress. Brilliant service from the dreams staff via e-mail, courier updates and delivery staff. Thank you.


An absolute dream of a mattress

l bought the mattress last month but have only just started to use it as we have been decorating my bedroom. I am absolutely delighted with it and have experienced the best night's sleep in years. I suffer with chronic back pain , joint and muscle pain and,.on this mattress , feel like l'm floating . So comfy and supportive.


Super comfort

I bought this mattress almost a month ago now and it’s the best thing me and my partner ever done!. After lying on the mattress machine for 3 minutes we got a couple options but this was by far the best. My partners bad back has gotten better (also he doesn’t snore like he used to) it’s made getting out of bed even harder.


Mattress and service

This is a great medium mattress, both myself and my husband suffer with lower back pain and it’s perfect for a great nights sleep. It has handles on the sides to help with moving it. We tried and tested in store we bought. Ordering online was simple and it was delivered within a few days. Fantastic product and service.


Soooo comfy!!

I bought this just before Christmas! I was having real back problems with my old mattress and could not be more pleased I got this new one from Dreams. The service was great, really helpful and super knowledgable. We came away with lots of helpful features such as insurance! Would definitely recommend and come back.


A back saver!

I bought this mattress for my 3/4 sized bed (small double), it fits perfectly. On a metal bed frame (not a divan) it feels a bit more soft than it did in store but it is still firm and provides lots of support and comfort. Since using this bed my Fitbit has reported a significant increase in good quality sleep!


Worth the money.

I was hesitant to spend the Extra amount to get this mattress as it was 200 more than another I wanted however, I am glad that I did. It's very comfortable, just the right level of firm for me and it's so cosy. The mattress is very heavy and not easy to move around but I think it's just right for me so far.


Amazing product and service

I bought the Sutton bed with a new mattress a few weeks ago. Firstly the customer service from the dreams team was excellent! Delivering when they said, even during lockdown. Secondly, the bed was very easy to put together and has a nice smooth mechanism. Very comfortable to sleep on top to top it off


Very comfortable

We have slept on our new Rapley mattress for over a week now, myself and my husband can already feel the benefit of it, we haven't woken up with sore or stiff backs once so far. The mattress is slightly firmer than I remember when trying it in the shop but overall we are extremely happy with this purchase.


Super Comfy

I brought this about 6 weeks ago, so pleased I got it. I've previously had firm silent night mattresses in the past so was a little hesitant at first when buying it, but I get better nights sleep with this mattress than I've had with others. Would definitely recommend this product, super cosy and comfy.


Superb night's sleep!

Really glad that we took the plunge on buying this mattress. Having used the in-store procedure to work outwit type of mattress would suit us best we went for this one and both of our sleep has improved immensely as a result. Extremely comfortable, very supportive, definitely a purchase I'm glad we made!


Actually look forward to going to bed no

We brought this mattress a few weeks and ago and it made an amazing difference to me and my husband! We both sleep so much better and are so comfortable all night long! We actually look forward to getting in bed and I'm now to comfortable to get out again but at least we wake up pain free and refreshed.


So comfy!

We've owned this mattress for a year or so, and it is so incredibly comfortable. Whenever we're sleeping away, I always miss it, and nothing compares. When I've had people come to stay and have slept on it, they comment on how comfy it is and how well they slept. Perfect balance between firm and soft.


Nice mattress, nice service.

A great supportive (mines a medium firm) mattress. Got rid of the old foam mattress as my back was giving me grief, this mattress is supportive and very comfortable. Delivery was also very good and easy to arrange. I'm normally a grumpy cynic, but i have been nicely surprised when dealing with Dreams.


Great bed

Bought this bed and was delivered quickly and professionally. Bed is correct fit and support as I used the inhouse bed machine to find the best fit for me. Price was good. there was a more expensive one but was not pushed to purchase that one. Store mamanger wanted me to purchase the best bed for me.


So perfectly comfy

This mattress is so very comfortable. I don't sink so far into it that it is difficult to get up, but also it doesn't feel like in am lying on a piece of wood! And I am no longer waking up aching. Ticks all the correct boxes. Very pleased with my purchase and also the customer service from Dreams.


Amazing Mattress! Best Sleep Ever!

Amazing mattress! Never slept any better! It's so comfortable throughout the night. We used the instore electronic bed to detect the type of mattress we need, turned out myself and my partner both needed the same type and it's made our sleep so much better! For the price, you can't really go wrong.


johnstone king size mattress

I went for the same mattress I purchased a while back but they've stopped making them but the Johnstone kingsize was an alternative to my old one and I can honestly say it is more comfier than the old one, now I don't want to get out of bed lol there are more springs in the new mattress I LOVE IT.


What a difference!

I had been having touble with my back and hips, waking up very stiff and sore. The memory foam layer on this mattress has made such a difference and back and hip problems have all but dissappeared. Both my husband and I are really pleased with our new mattress and the help we got with choosing it.


Great mattress for singles not necessarily couples

Slight bulging in the middle of the mattress which I imagine can be problematic for couples but as someone who sleeps alone it's a great product! Feels on the firmer side of a medium but that's not a problem for me. Can barely feel any movement from the mattress when sleeping on it. Great product


Happy Customer

Fantastic customer service! Hadn't a clue what mattress was suitable for me but after having mattress support test it answered that. My new mattress is divine as wake up with no pressure aches on my hips which my old mattress did...Very happy with choice & service both instore & delivery team!!


Very comfortable, Great Quality !!!

Purchased in June 2021 online tested first instore. Very comfortable "firm Mattress as on Label" although Website description showed Medium. For anyone between 80-100 kg this should be very comfortable. I am a 70kg side sleeper and had no problems with any roll or sinking feeling. Very impressed


So comfortable

We brought this mattress 3 weeks ago and it is perfect to sleep on. I was recommended to go for a firm mattress and my husband a medium. This is the perfect comprise. I was also advised to change my pillow to complement the mattress, which I did. Very comfortable sleep and no more back ache.


excellent customer service

Dreams have been fantastic I ordered the bed and mattress in April but didn't have a move in date for property I was buying. They kept the goods with no question even when I put back the delivery date 3 times. So helpful and understanding would definitely recommend and use buy from them again.


Good dreams

We went to the store and Carlos received us, he completely changed our mind about how we should buy a mattress, he offered us his support during all the journey and finally we chose this one. One of the best investments, the mattress is excellent and has offered to us a good rest every night.



Recently bought this mattress finding it very comfortable does not aggravate my arthritis just love snuggling under my duvet onto it. I find I dont want to get up on a morning now because I don't wake up in as much pain in my back as I did with my previous mattress definitely recommended it.


Very comfortable bed

I bought this bed a month ago and I can honestly say, it is the most comfortable bed I have ever owned. I have lower back problems and often wake up with a very sore back but I have found that this bed fully supports by back and hips, I now sleep through the night. Would highly recommend.


Brilliant supportive mattress

Best mattress I have ever found. Just the right amount of cushioning and support. Can only describe it as a "marshmallow" type of support - not too solid but not too soft either. Not overly heavy and has handles. It's also a sensible thickness so my sheets still fit it. Very happy indeed.


Extremely Comfortable

Bought this mattress to go on my daughter’s new bed. Verging only adulthood we felt it was time to invest in a good bed so we took her to try the sleep match machine. This was one of three mattresses recommended by the sales assistant and she loves it. She even started going to bed early!


Very pleased

Very comfortable mattress. In store service was very helpful and felt safe with covid protocols put in place. Didn't know what we needed at all and sales woman was very informative. Delivery men kept us up to date with delivery times and were very helpful on delivery. Would use again.


Aches and pains gone

We had a complete memory foam mattress before this and were both getting back pains, I think it was just too soft. This is nice and firm yet still very comfortable, supports in all the right places and pain has gone! Well recommended for side sleepers like ourselves, worth the money.


Very comfortable and great stuff!!

Ordered this during December arrived in December no negotiation on the delivery date!! Perfect gift for my daughter... can’t get a better start to the 2020 with very good night sleep. She has been complaining for something with the old mattress.. absolutely pleased with the stuff..


Great choice, happy with it.

Our second mattress with Dreams King size, Highly recommend it. I had got back pain muscle trap or nervous trap, anyway big pain. The previous was 5 years old could not help, so bought new one around month ago. Could not have better. was taken few sleep time my back now super.


Perfect mattress, great night’s sleep

Very excited to receive my new mattress. After many months of waking up feeling as though I’d not had a good night’s sleep and a sore back I realised my mattress had to be changed. Absolutely delighted, very comfortable, exactly as I’d hoped. So comfortable, love getting into bed.


Excellent service from order to getting the bed

The continued update of the service is so good to know how things are going. This bed was for my mother and I bought this from Dreams as I have bought a bed a few months ago for myself and was so satisfied thought why would I go elsewhere. No risk with Dreams. Thank you so much!!

Questions and Answers About Johnstone Pocket Sprung Mattress

I recently purchased a ready matt supreme medium firm mattress from Dreams and had to sell it after a couple of months as it heated up like a furnace, even through this cold weather. Should I expect the same from the Rapley and its layer of memory form?  

Answer: Hello ssosina, Sorry to hear that. This should not happen with the Rapley, however if you do not find the mattress comfortable for any reason, Dreams do provide the 40 night comfort guarantee. You can find more information about our 40 night comfort guarantee here: I hope this helps and many thanks for your question.

What is the warranty on this mattress

Answer: Hello , All of our mattresses come with a 1 year warranty, though you can buy our bedcover service plan at the checkout that will cover you for 8 years including accidental damages. To find out more please visit: I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

Reading the reviews on this mattress it seems that some customers have experienced an unpleasant `musty/damp' smell. Is this always the case ?

Answer: Hello , No not at all, this mattress does not smell. The musty/damp smell may be due to people finding the memory foam warmer and causing them to sweat more at night; this would make the mattress smell. The mattress should not turn up smelling. Thank you for your question and I hope this helps

Does rotating this mattress help it? If so how often would you recommend.

Can you use an electric blanket with this mattress? I've heard heat isn't good for memory foam and as these have a layer of memory foam I wouldn't want to damage it with an electric blanket.

Answer: Hello , Due to the layer of memory foam within the Rapley mattress, we would advise against using an electric blanket as overtime this will harden the memory foam. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.
