Overview

becky says

The simply Bensons Rafferty Options Pillow Top Mattress is a luxury mattress with ad additional pillow top included as part of the comfort layer for extra comfort. Featuring an impressive 5-year guarantee, this is the type of mattress you want in order to get the best nights sleep possible. It's a medium or firm mattress that is made up of our open coil mattress that gives you extra support and comfort. It features an edge-to-edge system so you get more sleeping surface and more space to turn over. The Simply Bensons Collection is manufactured in Britain and features a British Standard Kitemark.

With the two different firmness options available, this mattress will largely be suitable for all, as most people prefer a medium firmness as an all-rounder, while those suffering from back or neck pain who are looking for a bit more firmness and tension to help them sleep, will be impressed by the firmer model.

With a depth of 31cm, you may need deeper sheets than usual, however, a deeper mattress gives lots of room for the good quality spring system and a heft amount of top-layer comfort layer.

I really like the Rafferty, other people do too. As of today, we've got numerous 5 star reviews, all complimenting the great price to comfort ratio and strong support within the product.

Reviews are really good and despite being a fairly new mattress it has already accumulated its fair share of happy customers. Reviewers particularly enjoyed the back support on offer from this firm tensioned product. Looking at the range of people this mattress suits it does look like it will appeal mostly to those that sleep on their back and are looking for a bit more value from their mattress. The Simply Bensons range is still quite new but looks to offer a great compromise between quality and cost.

Reasons to Buy

Fantastic price point thanks to its fairly new in-house branding, save compared to the bigger brands.

Reviewers love the firm tension for back and neck support.

Reasons to Avoid

The firm tension will potentially not suit side sleepers and those of lower BMI than average.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

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

  • 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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Simply Bensons Rafferty Options Pillow Top Mattress Great?

Open Coil Mattress

Open Coil, often referred to as traditional spring, is, as the name says, a support layer featuring open coils, often ranging in amount from 200-2000. Open coil mattresses are a fantastic choice for those looking for great value in a product, in part due to their cheaper manufacturing which can be passed onto the consumer. My personal preference leans toward pocket springs, however, you will be unlikely to find better at this price point.

Firmness Rating: Medium or Firm

A mattress that’s right for you can help you get a better night’s sleep! This mattress is designed with your comfort in mind with two firmness ratings: Medium and Firm. Choose the one that feels best for you and your body type.

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.

Pillow-top feature with superflex foam filling layer and white Eco-Fibre in the quilted pillowtop for a sensational comfort level

A pillow top works as a permanent additional comfort layer that sits at the top of your mattress offering an additional degree of thickness to help separate you from the base support layer. Ideal for those who want more softness and luxury that allows them to sink deeper.

Stretch-Knit 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, adds 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 no turn, rotate only mattress – includes handles for ease of rotating

Rotating the mattress remains an important step in maintenance. The comfort and support layers of a mattress settle over time and it is necessary to rotate at certain periods to help reduce risk of dipping while you sleep in the same patterns and locations across the mattress.

Mattress Height – 31cm

With a depth of 31cm, this mattress is quite thick and featuring a fair amount of heft. While quality is not necessarily determined by depth, it does go some way toward allowing good quality fillings.

Available in colours Slate, Latte Beige and Dove Grey

With such a range of different colours you will be able to pair your divan base with whatever decor and style you are looking for. We prefer the neutral colour of the Dove Grey which is both modern but also has mass appeal and suits many existing room designs.

White Mattress

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 Single, Small Double, Double & King

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 Rafferty Options Pillow Top Mattress

Based on 140 reviews
3

The mattress is pretty comfy. I purchased this medium mattress due to pregnancy-related hip pain, which has unfortunately not been fixed even with the pillow top, but hopefully in a couple of months this mattress will be the best thing ever! However, after just 1 month of use, there is quite a large lump running down the middle, between where my husband and I sleep. We have been rotating the mattress but Im sure that can only do so much as no matter which way its turned, were still sleeping on either side of this lump!

5

I wasn't sure what I wanted from a mattress, but I'm really glad I chose this one. The pillow top is soft and has memory foam in it, whilst the springs in the mattress are quite firm. This gives me a comfy, yet firm bed that is just perfect. I have been sleeping so much better since getting it. I believe I am not moving around as much as I feel comfortable staying in one position. Great value and defintely worth the money!

4

UK made mattress, decent quality for what I paid (240). delivery took about 4 weeks, but that was fine, especially as you know it is being made on order. Quite soft mattress but supportive. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. Bensons recommended company because they have a good choice.

3

The mattress is now sunk in the middle after a couple of weeks although still comfy. Not sure how it's going to fare in the next few weeks let alone years. Its a lot of money to spend on a mattress that sinks in the middle after only 2 weeks of use!

5

My mum wanted a much softer bed than the very firm memory foam mattress that she has had for the last couple of years. And we decided to buy a whole new bed as well. She's so pleased with the bed she chose, and has found it very comfortable.

5

Extremely comfy mattress. It was a joy to sleep on from the very first night. Excellent price too. I bought it along with a divan base which makes the bed a good height. The delivery guys took away my old mattress and assembled my new bed.

5

After a Good few different mattresses tested, this mattress was the ideal one. Wife suffers with her back, this mattress she tried in store suited her best, since delivery we both are having a more relaxing and enjoyable sleep

5

Got a little discount in the sale which made it under 300, daughter loves this thing, impossible to get her out of it some mornings! We just slung it in an Ikea Ottoman frame, fits like a glove.

5

Comfortable from day 1 . Id been apprehensive about buying a new mattress in case we couldnt get a good nights sleep. It has a topper and is very thick well made , cant fault it at all.

5

I wanted a firm, but comfortable mattress to support my back, and the Rafferty Pillow Top one that I purchased, absolutely fulfilled my requirements!
