Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

Key Performance Indicators

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard 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.

Performance

  • 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.

Odour

  • 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.

What Makes The Simply Bensons Pennington Options Pocket 800 Mattress Great?

800 Pocket Sprung Mattress

800 springs is a suitable amount to ensure even and measured coverage and support for the user. Good support is necessary to prevent back pain.

Firmness rating: Firm

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

BSI - British Standard Kitemark™ accreditated

The British Standard Kitemark is a standard produced by the BSI Group which is incorporated under a royal charter for safety, relaibility and conformity with British expectations and standards.

800 super responsive pocket springs for individul support

800 springs is a suitable amount to ensure even and measured coverage and support for the user. Good support is necessary to prevent back pain.

Quilted Top Layer of White Fibre Fillings for added comfort

White fibre fillings are great because they are largely hypo-allergenic while still being soft and comfortable. A fine addition to any bedroom for allergy sufferers and still a great choice for those looking for an additional bit of comfort in a mattress.

Woven Quilted Fabric

This mattress comes with a quilted cover. Many people overlook the cover as a need for consideration however, the right cover can add additional comfort and in the case of this one here, add quilted comfort that offers a soft but hard-wearing cover that is both breathable and stylish.

Super supportive edge-to-edge system to maximise sleep area

an edge to edge system in mattresses basically helps to ensure rigidity in the sides of the mattress. This is important as many lower quality mattresses lack this feature and almost push you out of the bed when you get too close to the edge, preventing you from being able to utilise the full sleeping area. 

Easy-care, non-turn mattress

Non-turn mattresses do not need to be flipped as the support layer, that's the layer that is soft and spongey, is only on one side. Being on one side is more convenient for the end-user while also allowing further cost savings to be passed onto the consumer. It is a very common way of maximising the quality of a product while keeping costs down.

Mattress Height – 26cm

26cm is fairly deep for a mattress and comes with enough depth to feature many good quality components and comfort layers necessary to get a good nights sleep

Available in White

Some retailers have started putting more design ambition into their covers which, while cute, won't effect the mattress in any measurable way. In this instance, we've kept things simple, a nice crisp white mattress.

Available in sizes Small Single, Single, Small Double, Double, King & Super King

Choosing the right size mattress for a room can often feel overwhelming, after all, everybody really wants a king size or above, but let's face it, the majority of the country finds themselves packed in line sardines and so more often than not we find ourselves having to sacrifice a little bit of starfishing for space and to instead target a small double or double mattress. Regardless of the size you need, this mattress comes in all sizes, simply select the size you need above and take a look at the special price we've found.

Simply Bensons Collection

Part of the new Simply Bensons Collection. Established in 2020, this range is part of the rebrand of Bensons for Beds own brand mattresses and represents a excellent value for money while using good quality components.

Made in Britain

These are made and manufactured in the Great Britain, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine Great Britain manufacturing.

Customer Reviews For The Simply Bensons Pennington Options Pocket 800 Mattress

Based on 128 reviews
4

Delivered just 2 weeks back (4 weeks after placing order, so order in advance !!), so difficult to comment so early. We selected firm grade as we felt our previous mattress too soft and on trialling in shop liked firm mattress. The new firm mattress seems too firmly than needed (may be it's new at present!). Hope it gets little softer with use after few more weeks. Good that I didn't bought costlier one, otherwise I would have risk larger amount. Buying mattress is a gamble.

5

Bought this mattress to go on the hip hop bed and when we explained to the salesman we wanted a firm and non springy mattress he recommended this one. Liked it in the showroom but have to say it is exactly what we wanted and have found it to be great value for money and extremely comfortable. Thank you Bensons cant fault the service or the products!

5

We bought these mattresses to upgrade some spare-room beds. Our guests have just left and they were really pleased with the comfort. Bensons was an obvious choice as we bought our own king size bed from them so we knew the quality would be first class.

5

Very comfortable mattress, especially if you suffer with back issues. Gives you the support you need for your joints. This was stated as a firm mattress but I would say it was more medium/firm. Not as hard as some firm mattresses we tried instore.

4

love the bed but disapointed with lack of help bed dropped in room two people in house both invalids left to unpack remove all plastic and all the little bits turn bed and mattress into place left us both unhappy

4

Quite firm so we have added a topper. Weirdly we left the bed for a a few hours & when we came back it was covered with tiny spiders! Was there a dormant nest or did they come in from outside

4

Mattress seems to be good. Not as firm as I anticipated but not necessarily a bad thing. Was a little disappointed that the price dropped after I had received it but not much I can do about that

5

Perfect for my children, great value for money and extremely comfy. My children sleep all the way through the night now, so Im extremely happy! Highly recommend
