What Makes It Great

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.

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

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

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

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

Questions and Answers

how heavy is this mattress?

Answer: Hello , The Rapley mattress weighs 31kg. I hope that helps and thank you for your question.

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.

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.

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

Answer: Hello , Yes you would need to rotate from the head-end to the foot-end. We would recommend it is turned every month for the first year, then every three months thereafter. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

How think is the matress 

Answer: Hello , This mattress is 22cm thick. I hope this helps and thank you for your question.

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.

hi is the base made with wooden slates

Answer: Hello, No, this base has a solid platform top base. Thank you for your question, and I hope this helps.

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

How much does the super King mattress weigh please? 

Answer: Hello, The Super King mattress weighs 38kg. Many thanks for your question and I hope this helps.

What is the depth of a Rapley sprung mattress please

Are feathers used in the Rapley Mattress

Answer: Hello , No feathers are not used. Thank you for your question and I hope this helps.

Hi Are your beds compatible with headboards from other stores? I am interested in purchasing the rapley divan bed but have seen a headboard I prefer elsewhere.  Is it easy to fit if so? Thanks

Answer: Hello , Our bases are compatible with all standard UK sized headboards. It should be relatively straight forward to attach. Thank you for your question and I hope this helps.

Does this bed come in 4ft

Answer: Hello , No unfortnately not. Thank you for your question and I hope this helps.

Hi don't know if I'm thick or something but looking for new mattress wont memory foam kind. The pocket sprung mattresses are they memory foam ones also thanks

Can you get 18months interest free on this bed and can it have sliding doors in the base.

Answer: Hello , To qualify for finance your minimum order value has to be £400. Yes, sliding drawers are available. Many thanks for your question.

Hi can you use the mattress with a pine slated base?

Answer: Hello , Yes, this will be suitable for this type of bed frame. Many thanks for your question.

Can you tell me how deep the memory foam is on the Rapley pocket sprung mattress please.

Answer: Hello , The memory foam will 2.5cm deep within the mattress. Many thanks for the question.

How deep is the memory foam on the Rapley mattress please.

Answer: Hello , The memory foam will 2.5cm deep within the mattress. Many thanks for the question.

Should a mattress with a memory foam top be rock solid (like laying on the floor?)  Could you clarify the depth of memory foam please, 2 different questions with 2 different answers 

Answer: Hello , Firstly, the mattress should provide a soft layer as memory foam is temperature responding so if the room is very cold the memory foam can feel firmer. The memory foam in this product is also 25mm thick within the mattress. Many thanks for the question.

Following my question from earlier, have you reduced the amount of memory foam? According to a question a year ago with regards to thickness it was 45mm. Definately not cold in our room, especially with two people laying on it. 

Answer: Hello , The specification has always remained the same. That may have been a error, which now will be removed. Many thanks for the question.

Is this mattress reversible?

Answer: Hello, The mattress can only be rotated. Many thanks for the question.

There's only one recommended headboard for this bed, which is wooden. I would like to purchase a softer, fabric one, but difficult to ascertain which beige headboard would match with this bed. Any recommendations?

Answer: Hello, We can recommend the malibu, columbia or the newark as they all will match the base perfectly. Many thanks for the question.

Hi, The height of this bed is listed at 56cm. Is that the height of the bed and mattress or just the bed?.

Answer: Hello, This will be the whole whole divan bed. Many thanks for the question.

looking at 3 different mattresses, Kendall, Wakefield & Rapley. videos & spec look almost identical. Rapley has 1000 springs. my Qs- What are differences? Are springs of a better quality? How many springs in king size - as can't all have same! thanks

Answer: Hello, All bed manufacturers base the spring count on a king size. This will differ with all sizes. Many thanks for the question.

What is the memory foam thickness in the rapley? Don't believe it 25mm as the wakefield and kendall is this and looking at the layer image for rapley and comparing it to the layer image for wakefield/Kendall, you can see the rapley is thicker.

Answer: Hi , The memory foam thickness is 45mm. Thank you.

Is this suitable for a metal bed, not a divan? Need to know to make an informed decision.

Answer: Hi , Yes this mattress is suitable for a metal bed frame. Thank you for your question.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


We’re used to soft mattresses so at first this felt very firm. But we’ve had a great nights sleep every night we’ve slept on it. Very supportive on my partners bad back and extremely comfy. Delivery was also great (especially as our “room” was a tricky one to get it into!)

Very comfortable ,get a great nights sleep

Shop experience was very good paid for a Saturday Delivery and told delivery team would ring with time of delivery.Delivery was cancelled for that day and tried to blame me for not responding to a email.was promised 50 pound gift vouchers but so far I not received them.

Good Delivery and Great Bed!

I purchased this a month ago, and am extremely happy with the purchase. The delivery of the bed took a while as it was in high demand. However, when it came, the delivery staff were very polite and helpful. Product is great and have had no problems with it so far

Quality product

We bought this mattress on the basis that it's firmness is medium. After our previous mattress (which was rather old!) it did initially feel quite firm but we're getting a good nights sleep and are getting use to the firmness and so certainly recommended.

Good feel

I bought this mattress about 6 weeks ago and have found it so much comfortable than a firm mattress. I don't wake up feeling aching and stiff. Very pleased to have changed from the firm to a medium mattress. I had major back surgery about 30 years ago.

Most comfortable mattress ever!

My partner and I ordered this mattress and the Seoul tv ottoman bed for our first home. This is the first mattress I’ve bought and I’m not disappointed when you lie on it you sink in a tiny bit but then the springs support you! So comfortable!

Very comfirtable mattress

I had been to a holiday cottage and slept so well on the Rapley sprung mattress there that I have purchased one for my home. The mattress is not too firm and gives just the right amount of support. I am thoroughly delighted with my purchase.

So comfortable!

Bought this mattress a few weeks ago and have been very pleased with it. Extremely comfortable and has stopped my husband rolling onto my side! Result! Would say it is on the firm side of medium with a lovely memory foam top. So far so good!

Brilliant Trusted Company

I have always used Dreams, being local to the Head office. Their staff are so friendly and helpful without being pushy, their prices are excellebt and even their delivery is understanding to times and texting ahead. I will always use Dreams

Incredibly Comfortable

This is literally the most comfy mattress I have ever laid on - my back had been twisting out of shape on my old memory foam mattress - the Rapley is such a relief, I can feel my back re-aligning itself - all my body is totally supported

Best sleep for years

I had my old mattress for a few years and need another one. This one came up recommended and I can honestly say I wish I done it sooner, I will be using dreams again. Finally a great company which make the experience effortless.

No Roll over

Have had this mattress for a few weeks now and before my husbands trip tp the bathroom or turning over in bed always woke me up. I now sleep right through everything, best nights sleep ever. Good quality very pleased

Very comfortable

I am being sleeping on this mattress for 2 weeks and I am having the best rest ever overnight. I wake up more rested than before and that is also due to the quality of the sleep I am getting. Very raccomended

Fantastically comfortable

I have had this mattress for 3 weeks and am very happy. More comfortable and cooler than my previous mattress. Best decision I ever made buying this mattress and very reasonably priced. Fantastic purchase.

Firm, supportive and very comfortable

Much better than my old mattress. Had been troubled with low back pain, especially at night. But since I've had this mattress, I'm hardly troubled with it, and get a better night's sleep as a result.

Very comfy

Purchased this about 5 weeks ago,the mattress is very comfortable, after the first few nights I felt like some aches I had been getting were eased. I now look forward to going to bed.

Comfy mattress

Bought this a month ago for my teenage daughter and she thinks it is very comfy and could not be happier. I have laid on it and it seems very comfy would recommend for any age group

Comfy Mattress

This was a super cheap deal for the mattress that I got from Dreams. It's now discontinued I believe which is probably why it was so cheap. Still, it's comfy and just what I needed.

Great night's sleep ...

We bought this for our son who has complained non-stop about how horrible his mattress was :-) He is sleeping much better, no back ache when he gets up and best of all no moaning!

Excellent product!

I had mattress same as this one before but it was king size, as we changed the frame we had to change the mattress too. I am really happy with this mattress and I recommmend it !

Comfortable for us both

We bought one of these a few years ago and have searched for another in our new home. Very happy with it, as we're now comfortable, only problem is the dog seems to like it too!
