Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

Hey everyone! I hope you're having a great day. I wanted to share with you my latest find - the Shire Hotel Supreme 2000 Pocket Contract Mattress. Let me tell you, this mattress is a game changer for trade customers!

First of all, it's perfect for any hotel or guesthouse. The 2000 individual pocket springs and luxurious layers of cotton and wool offer unrivalled comfort for your guests. Plus, with a superior, flat wire edge and a sumptuous 100% cotton cover, this mattress is sure to give your guests a luxurious night's sleep. This really stands out as previous products we have looked at for the hotel and contract industry have all been the lower quality open coil springs, not so with this one though. With the Supreme you are getting high quality pocket springs that contour to your every move, and they're also built to last with excellent durability.

But the comfort doesn't stop there - this mattress is also hand-tufted to secure all of those springs in place and has a total depth of 29cm (about 11.4 inches) which may require deep fill sheets as an additional expensive, but a worthy one for 5-star feedback from guests. And with its firm support, your guests will wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated as it is ideal for providing additional support targeting back sleepers.

But the best part? This mattress is double-sided for long-lasting performance. Simply flip it over using the built-in turning handles to keep it in excellent condition. This is a big deal as it means the comfort layer is on both sides, allowing more surface area of coverage that will help extend lifespan and reduce settlement issues. Even in the event there are problems there is no need to worry - this mattress comes with a 1 year guarantee.

Once you get past the great comfort and support, there's also the main reason you are likely looking at this product. This mattress is designed with safety in mind, complying with BS7177:2008 Source 5 - Medium Hazard regulations, making it perfect for use in most commercial premises. It's even approved by the National Bed Federation who have put their stamp or approval on the product.

As a finishing touch this mattress is handcrafted right here in the UK, supporting our economy and reducing environmental impact, all the while helping to provide you and your guests with a great nights sleep.

So, if you're looking to upgrade the mattresses in your hotel or guesthouse, the Shire Hotel Supreme 2000 Pocket Contract Mattress is the way to go. Trust me, your guests will thank you.

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.


*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.

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.


  • 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 Shire Hotel Supreme 2000 Pocket Contract Mattress Great?

Perfect for any hotel or guesthouse

Complies with BS7177:2008 Source 5 - Medium Hazard

A domestic mattress would normally have a level 1 (low-hazard) fire resistance but this mattress goes the extra mile with a level 5 (medium hazard). This is the level of resistance normally used in higher-risk places such as hotels and hospitals.

2000 individual pocket springs

Typically, the more springs the better. The average mattress has around 1000 springs and so anything more than that is considered good. The firmness/tension of a mattress is also not dictated by the amount of springs and so you do not need to worry about the firmness being unsuitable when it comes to spring count. Simply the more springs, the better the mattress can contour to your body. 2000 springs is considered great.

Luxurious layers of cotton and wool

There are many benefits to cotton in mattresses, including its hypoallergenic properties, its ability to regulate body temperature, and its breathability. Cotton is also a very durable fabric, so it can withstand a lot of wear and tear.

Superior, flat wire edge

Sumptuous 100% cotton cover

Cotton is a natural fiber that breathes well, keeping you cool and comfortable while you sleep. It's also durable and absorbent, so it will help keep your mattress clean and fresh. Cotton is a great choice for people who are looking for a natural, breathable, and durable mattress material.

Hand-tufted to secure all of those springs

Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.

Total mattress depth: 29cm

29cm is a fairly good depth for a good quality mattress. Plenty of room for a decent spring system and enough fillings to provide more than enough comfort. While depth is not necessarily a guarantee of quality, it certainly helps.

Firm support

Firm Tension Support Mattresses are suited to those who prefer sleeping on their front and back. Typically sleeping on your back helps ensure the spine remains aligned throughout the night and is the most natural sleeping position that can prevent twisting and turning. A firm mattress ensures that a high level of support contours around your body, alleviating pressure across your entire frame in a more even manner than that of a soft mattress, most notably in the hips, neck and shoulders.Finally, if you are suffering from neck or back pain, a firm mattress can help alleviate these problems and result in a better and more relaxed sleep for many years to come.

Double-sided for long-lasting performance

The benefits of a double sided mattress are that you get twice the surface area of comfort layers. The real-world practicality of this means that you flip the mattress as well as rotate allowing for better settlement of fillings which increases longevity, while reducing the chance of dipping or spring problems that may otherwise occur. Ultimately the mattress will likely last longer and remain comfortable for a greater duration.

Built-in turning handles for your ease

A mattress with turning handles can be a great way to make flipping and moving your mattress easier. This type of mattress typically has handles on both sides, making it easy to grab and flip. Some models even have handles on the top and bottom of the mattress, making it easy to move around. If you're looking for a mattress that's easy to flip and move, a mattress with turning handles is a good option.

Made in the UK

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

1 year guarantee

1 year guarantee is typical for the industry. This means you are guaranteed to have a trouble free experience for the first year or have your product replaced

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.


A cotton mattress cover of fairly good quality and often preferable to damask covers and weaved covers. Your preference will vary though.


Luxury wool, typically found in mattresses in a shredded and felted capacity is an upholstery fibre often used as a top comfort layer, but sometimes found further down in those mattress layers as part of the support structure


Firm mattresses are great for those looking for an extra bit of support, either because they have a higher BMI and leanm toward the heavier side, or because they have joint and muscle pain and appreciate a decent amount of support while they sleep. If you are not actively looking for a firm mattress it may be wise to consider something else from the range that is perhaps closer to the medium firmness rating

29cm deep

Most experts recommend a minimum of 4 inches on the top layer and 6 inches for the core so this is ideal at 11/12 inches. Generally, the heavier the load the deeper the mattress should be. This depth covers a wide range of body type sitting comfortably in the most popular section of the scale.


Double sided just means that the product can be flipped and still retain the same level of comfort. The fillings and dibres inside the product are capable of operating in any direction. Handy for settlement and to prevent dipping.

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team
