Why our sleep experts loved it

The Silentnight Essentials Value Mattress is a product that strikes a balance between affordability and quality. With features that are often found in premium ranges, such as Eco Comfort Fibres™, this mattress offers a unique proposition for those seeking comfort and sustainability without breaking the bank. 

About the Manufacturer

Silentnight is a name synonymous with quality sleep solutions and has been at the forefront of mattress manufacturing for over 60 years. Renowned for their innovation and commitment to comfort, Silentnight offers a wide range of products that cater to various preferences and budgets. Their dedication to sustainability is evident in their use of eco-friendly materials, such as the Eco Comfort Fibres™, which align with modern environmental concerns. 

Construction and Materials

At the heart of the Silentnight Essentials Mattress is a traditional open coil spring system. While not as advanced as pocket springs, these open coil springs provide a sturdy and durable support system that's commendable for the price point.

The comfort layer is where this bed truly shines though, thanks to Eco Comfort Fibres™, which are not only breathable but also sustainable. These fibres are 100% recyclable and are produced from plastic bottles, making them an eco-friendly choice. The inclusion of these fibres, often found in Silentnight's premium range, at this price level is an extraordinary value proposition which shows that the brand is serious about offering comfort to the masses.

The comfort layers are also double-sided which will allow for regular flipping and rotation helping to expand on the durability and have the product remaining fresh and usable for longer. Ultimately this combination enhances the beds lifespan and ensures a comfortable and properly supported sleep.

Firmness and Feel

With a medium-firm comfort rating, the Essentials Value Mattress is designed to cater to both back and side sleepers. While some side sleepers might find it slightly too firm, the product offers good all-around body contouring and support. The open coil springs, coupled with the soft white fibres, create a balanced feel that's neither too soft nor too hard.

With the above said however, those with a lower BMI are likely to not find this product suitable for use as the medium firm tension is probably going to be a bit too resistive in both the side sleeping and back sleeping positions. That is, provided the end user does not have orthopaedic needs. Ultimately though, average weighted sleepers should be able to find a good degree of comfort, particularly for the price.

Performance Analysis

The traditional open coil springs may not provide the same level of individualised support as pocket springs, but they do offer a consistent and reliable sleeping surface that is appreciated by many. The Eco Comfort Fibres™ also add a touch of luxury and environmental consciousness, enhancing the overall sleep experience while being friendly to the environment.

Benefits Worth Mentioning

The next-day delivery option is a significant advantage, ensuring that customers receive their mattress promptly while the double-sided design we have already mentioned is a surprising feature at this price. Finally you have the three-year guarantee which goes beyond most other mattresses found at this price point. 

Final Thoughts

For those in search of a mattress that offers good support, environmental consciousness, and excellent value, the Silentnight Essentials Value stands as a noteworthy option that will be hard to match given the low price point and premium comfort layer. Ultimately the sacrifice in this model is in the open coil spring system, but even that is going to be fairly manageable for most people.

*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.


  • 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.

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.

Mattress was exactly what we wanted for a spare room. It will only be used occasionally and is just right for that job. Visitors have said the mattress is comfortable.
