The Benson for Beds Noble Mattress is a soft tension-ed mattress with a usable open coil traditional spring base layer accompanied by a deep and luxurious memory foam layer. The Noble looks to be an ideal product for those who sleep predominantly on their side, or are of a lower weight than average. Regardless of your circumstance, this new mattress offers a lot of value packed into a low price point and may be exactly what those on a budget need to see them through the next few years with a bit of comfort and luxury.
Let’s first look at who this mattress is for and to answer that question we need to look at the tension of springs, upper comfort components and price point. The soft tension allows you to sink further into the mattress and so this is an obvious win for those who require more sink-age like side sleepers. Onto the comfort layer of memory foam and this suits those looking to have that sink and rebound feel that comes with the material. This same foam is also good for heat absorption and retention meaning the mattress will keep you warm while you sleep. The price point is going to be the main factor in this purchase however, coming in at a respectably low-quadrant price point that will appeal to many.
So then that brings us to who the Noble mattress will not be suitable for and it’s a bit like a game of opposites. Since the product is soft in tension it won’t be as suitable for back sleepers who require a bit more tension, or those who are heavier as they will sink too far into the mattress and not get the support necessary. Same too with memory foam, if you get too hot at night or prefer sleeping cool then these types of foam are generally best to be avoided.
In terms of where this mattress fits and the quadrant we find ourselves in, we would rate it firmly in the lower-priced category but punching slightly above in terms of quality of materials. You still won’t be getting a pocket spring base layer with this product, but the open coil support does a fairly good job with what you throw at it.
Onto firmness scales and we typically denote this in numerical value between 1 through 10 with 1 being very soft and 10 being very firm. We would mark the Noble a 4 on the firmness scale as it is soft but not overly so that you feel your back crying out in pain, rather, a perfect combination that suits side sleeping.
Customer feedback is non-existent at time of review as this is a brand new product in the Bensons for Beds range. While feedback is low, market competence is not, with the brand and retailer both having been established in the industry for considerable time. You can purchase this product with confidence thanks to the impressive 5-year guarantee that comes with it.
Lead time on delivery is another thing we get asked about as a consideration when looking at mattresses and it does seem like Bensons for Beds have some initial logistical hurdles to overcome. While this will obviously vary week by week and may indeed be outdated by the time you read this, we are currently seeing lead times of up to 4 weeks on delivery meaning that you will want to plan ahead if you do wish to avoid disappointment.
