Pros & Cons

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and a decade of industry insight.

  • The 1,000 pocket springs offer excellent support, adjusting to individual body movement, a feature much appreciated by back sleepers.
  • Many reviews echo admiration for the double-sided design and its seasonally appropriate benefits - the hypoallergenic comfort layer for warmer months and cosy wool for cooler ones.
  • A noteworthy highlight among customers is the damask cover, touted for its softness, durability, and breathability, thereby augmenting the overall sleep experience.
  • The dynamic reinforced edge support is highly commended, as it not only enhances the mattress's durability, but also prevents roll-off and optimises the sleep space right to the edge.
  • Its "I’m Green™" packaging is appreciated by environmentally-conscious consumers, emphasising the company's commitment to sustainable practices.
  • Some customers mentioned that the firmness level may not be suitable for side sleepers or people with hourglass figures, as it may not provide the appropriate level of support and comfort, however, it is an excellent choice for back and stomach sleepers.
  • A few users observed that flipping the mattress seasonally, while beneficial for varying weather conditions, could be a minor inconvenience for those with mobility issues, nonetheless, this feature enhances the longevity and performance of the mattress overall.
  • There were remarks about the weight of the Paignton Backcare Mattress making it slightly difficult to move or rotate, yet this is indicative of the mattress's high-quality, robust construction and durability.

Why our sleep experts loved it

A good mattress is a one-stop solution for a good night’s sleep and the Paignton Backcare Mattress takes mattress technology to a new level. In our quest to bring you the best products, we put this mattress through a rigorous testing process. And it has to be said, right from the outset, that it certainly made some waves. Whether it's the luxurious comfort or the ingenious seasonal design, this mattress delivers on a multitude of fronts.

How we test

In our pursuit of delivering honest and accurate reviews, we conducted a thorough evaluation of the Paignton Backcare Mattress in-store. We scrutinized each feature, experienced its feel first-hand, assessed comfort levels, and evaluated its construction quality. However, it must be noted that we did not conduct any in-home sleep trials for this review. Instead, our assessments are based on detailed in-person inspections and experiences in a controlled environment as well as valuable input from actual users.

Design and features

The Paignton Backcare Mattress boasts an impressive array of design features that are worth discussing. First in line is its 1000 pocket springs, a feature I personally appreciate. Adaptively responding to individual body movements, these pocket springs render exceptional support ensuring a restful sleep even if your partner is prone to much tossing and turning. The robustly woven Belgian damask cover offers an incredibly soft sleeping surface whilst enhancing durability. And, not to forget, the double-sided design is particularly interesting. Allowing for year-round comfort, the mattress has one side lined with natural wool fibres for warmth in winter and an alternate side layered with breathable recycled fibres for those warmer summer nights. The dynamic edge support reinforces the mattress sides, discouraging sagging and making sure you can utilise the entire sleep surface comfortably.

Mattress comfort

From a comfort perspective, the Paignton Backcare Mattress truly shines. Firm, yet forgiving, the mattress layers and tufting collaborate to provide you with a tranquil sleep experience. It’s a wonderful balance between a secure, supportive feel and a welcoming softness. The tufted construction additionally aids in extending mattress longevity and maintaining its structure, a quality seldom found in other mattresses. The seasonal design adds another dimension to this comfort, catering to your body's requirements throughout the year, be it for warmth or coolness.


The Paignton Backcare Mattress is most suited for back sleepers and those who tend to sleep on their stomachs owing to its firm tension. As a side note, individuals with an hourglass figure or those who prefer sleeping on their side may find the firmness slightly challenging as it offers lesser sinkage required for comfortable sleep especially around the hip and shoulder areas.

What customers thought

Showcasing users' opinions and experiences forms an integral part of our review. Here, the Paignton Backcare Mattress has received widespread acclaim for its perfect balance between firmness and comfort. Back sleepers have particularly benefited from its construction, finding that it provides the support their sleep style requires. However, certain side sleepers did express some difficulties due to the firmness, a point we have addressed earlier in our suitability section.

The verdict

In conclusion, the Paignton Backcare Mattress is a remarkable blend of luxury, comfort, and practicality. With its seasonal design, impressive construction features, firm yet soft comfort level, and substantial support, it ticks nearly all the boxes when considering a good quality mattress. It constitutes a great investment for back sleepers, promising a reinvigorating sleep experience that would leave you waking up refreshed and rejuvenated every single day.

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.


  • Initial Odour
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.
