I took my daughter with me to help choose this mattress as there were so many different styles available. I had one stipulation, no memory foam as I had tried this type of mattress and just could not get on with it. We took our time, a mattress is so important especially when, like me, you have arthritis and back issues. We narrowed it down to a pocket sprung design, and then we had a choice of four. The comfort of the Silentnight Cromwell mattress stood out for me, and I felt that really there was no other mattress that supported my joints so well. I know we made the right choice, every night I sleep soundly because the mattress supports evenly, and I have no trouble finding a comfortable position.
