The Maitland Pocket Spring Mattress has a lot going for it, having been fairly new to the range but having already become the 5th (at time of writing) best selling mattress. That's quite an achievement but it's also quite easy to see how it got there, what with it's strong olympic team GB backing and the support of many happy customers it's not hard to see why people are eager to furnish their homes with a new mid-range low price pointed Maitland 1000 Pocket Sprung Mattress.
What’s Inside the Maitland Pocket Sprung Mattress?
For this price point we would generally expect to see a low quality open coil traditional mattress base that provides great cost to support but is often lacking in longevity and body contouring. However, in a surprise twist we have a 1000 pocket sprung base layer. This is the same base found in mattresses 2-3x as expensive as this particular unit. Pocket springs are my favourite tension and that doesn't seem set to change any time soon, even with the continued roll out of more and more reflex foam rolled mattresses in the industry, you simply cannot beat a good quality pocket sprung unit like the one used here.
Onto the comfort layer that sits above the support base layer and the value for money keeps on going. We also have luxurious fillings, anti-roll together technology, and quality tufting as part of this combination. The result? This all comes together to create a really pretty remarkable mattress at a really fair and reasonable price.
What did customers think?
I'm not the only one to say so, either. With nearly 3000 reviews amassing an industry leading 95% consumer satisfaction on their own review-index, it is clear that others are delighted as well. Many comment on the great value at low cost and their ultimate surprise at the well-priced combination. Others remark on the firmness of this mattress being spot on relative to what they received, showing that this really is a firm mattress and what you receive should prove suitable for anyone looking to take advantage of this particular firmness, perhaps for neck and back pain, or perhaps a back or stomach sleeper.
Where is the Maitland Pocket Spring Mattress produced?
The mattress is part of a wider collection of mattresses produced by The Dreams Workshop, a brand that sits under the Dreams umbrella and has factories producing hand crafted products in Oldbury, West Midlands.
The Maitland Pocket Spring Mattress is part of the new Team GB range which makes them an official sleep partner. Made in the UK these mattresses have all the love and care that comes with handcrafted attention to detail.
Additional to this, the product has been a best seller before in it’s previous iteration, known as the Beaumont, which has been adapted and improved with the addition of turning handles and a more breathable and durable cover to improve comfort further.
Available in your standard sizes of single, double, king size and super king, there’s also a small double size available which may prove suitable for smaller guest rooms where space is limited.
Delivery times are somewhat sporadic in the post-covid landscape, however, we’re currently seeing just over a week for deliveries through the range which should suit most people fairly well.
