The Ferndale Mirapocket Mattress is a new mattress to the Dreams lineup that see's us reviewing a fairly decent all-rounder that ticks all the main criteria necessary to get a good nights sleep.
To start, pocket springs. This mattress has a ton of them. For those that don't know, pocket springs are a support layer in the mattress and, in my humble opinion, the best support system money can buy with the typical rule of thumb being the more, the merrier. Moving on to the comfort layer we've got a fairly safe choice here from Silentnight in the way of Eco Comfort Fibers. These fibers represent the mattress filling which is responsible for a large portion of the comfort. The Eco Comfort Fibers have been proven to work well with this pocket spring setup on offer and you have the benefit of helping save the environment while you shop as all eco comfort fibers are eco-friendly, flame retardant, hypoallergenic and fully recyclable...they're super comfy too.
Onto the outer layer and we have a soft quilt fabric, common to many mattresses in any retailers line-up in part due to their relatively hard wearing yet soft and breathable fabric all of which comes together to product a luxurious and complete package.
With further guarantee's of up to 8 years available on this product to purchase, it helps showcase just how much trust Silentnight have in this product.
Reviews for the Silentnight Ferndale 800 are positive with an impressive 400+ reviews and a great customer sentiment with 97% consumer satisfaction. Positive reviews far outweigh the negative with many commenting on the good nights sleep this mattress gives. Others were happy with the comfort from the get go, a good indication of quality with mattresses of this price point is where settlement shouldn't adjust through general usage which appears to be the case. Overall this mattress represents great quality at an affordable price from a brand you can trust.
Negative reviews are far fewer but we managed to find a few, the main area of concern was around springs dipping. This was only representative of 2 customers concerns and given the high quality pocket spring system we do not expect this to be a widespread issue. Springs can dip over time and usage but we normally see this in open coil traditional spring products rather than pocket springs, as such we would consider this a one(two)-off that is not typical behaviour.
To conclude, a fine addition to the range and one that should be suitable for the vast majority of people. I love it.
How does it feel?
Firmness of The Silentnight Ferndale 800 Pocket Eco Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.
Reasons to Buy
Mirapocket springs are a twist on traditional pocket springs. They perform admirably and there are people happy with their Mirapocket mattresses a decade later and still going strong.
Medium tension ensures mass market appeal proving ideal for back sleepers and side sleepers.
Impressive 5 year guarantee goes a long way toward full life cycle coverage.
Superb price point given the support layer paired with the brand quality.
Reasons to Avoid
Some reports around comfort level being too firm given the medium tension. Since this is an online only model we haven't been able to try this in store however, we do find that mattresses will soften over time and it would not be uncommon for a medium tension mattress to feel a bit firm while it settles.
