Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

Very cheap price considering the quality of the components.

Ideal for back sleepers who require orthopaedic tension.

Eco fillings are both good on the environment and extremely comfy, found in premium ranges from the manufacturer at far higher price points.

No good for side sleepers or those without orthopaedic needs.

Support layer could be better, although this would double the price.

Fairly long lead time at 3 weeks which might prove a barrier for some.

Why our sleep experts loved it

Greetings to all sleep enthusiasts, today's spotlight shines on the Portloe Miracoil Ortho Mattress from Silentnight and sold through Dreams. Both of these are revered names in the bedding arena and the bed has been created as a perfect fusion of luxury and value. For those navigating on a budget but unwilling to forgo quality, the Portloe might just be the answer to your nocturnal quests.

Who It Will Suit

When it comes to suitability, this one looks to be a call to all economical shoppers! The product stands out thanks to its phenomenal lumbar support, a blessing for those seeking specialised back reinforcement. The hallmark Miracoil® spring system underpins its construction, ensuring relatively uniform weight distribution. This, coupled with the Eco Comfort layer sculpted from sustainable resources, guarantees breathable sleep, making luxury accessible without draining your finances. What’s more, this pairing is particularly breathable and will prove ideal for those who get too warm while they sleep. Finally, that tension, being an extra firm means that it will likely only suit back sleepers who require specialist orthopaedic support.

Who It Won't Suit

The Portloe wears its firm comfort grade with pride but it will not resonate with everyone. Side sleepers will almost certainly deem it excessively rigid, missing out on the plusher cushioning necessary for their shoulders and hips.

How Firm Is It?

Distinctly firm, the Silentnight Portloe is tailored for those yearning for unyielding, steadfast lumbar support. Back and stomach sleepers in search of robust backing, particularly those grappling with intense back concerns, will find an ally in this mattress, although everyone else will ultimately not find this bed comfortable. The result is a particularly niche mattress that should be considered carefully for only specialist orthopaedic requirements.

Benefits of Eco Comfort fibres

The Eco Comfort layer dismantles the myth that eco-consciousness comes at a hefty price. What is more, the eco-friendly fibres are manufactured from plastic bottles into an incredibly breathable design resulting in a relaxed and cool slumber, aligning economic sensibility with planetary benevolence.

Benefits of a Miracoil® spring system

At the base of the Portloe in the support layer is the patented Miracoil® spring system, acting as its supportive pillar. It gives a fairly well balanced weight distribution, especially catering to those who require rigorous spinal alignment. Personally, this is the weak link of this particular product and I’m not a fan of it as pocket springs and reflex foam both feel like they offer a better and more even contouring approach that results in better edge support and roll together prevention. That said though, there is a much higher price band for this type of base and so it is not at all unreasonable to see the Miracoil on offer here. Ultimately you can find a good degree of support within this spring system and the price makes it a no brainer.

Suitability for Couples

One of the benefits of the Miracoil® springs is around minimal motion transfer, allowing one to remain unaffected by their partner's nocturnal activities. Even amidst nocturnal exuberance, your slumber remains unbroken. Pocket springs still do it better, but that’s going to be a recurring theme whenever I talk about this base layer.

Pricing

The Silentnight Portloe Miracoil Ortho Mattress comes with a more than reasonable price tag of under £300, a considerable saving over pocket spring mattresses which will no doubt amplify its allure. By combining affordability with premium attributes (the eco comfort fibres are found in even the most premium offerings from Silentnight these days), the Portloe redefines budget-friendly luxury, further complemented by available financing options and that specialist firm tension.

Conclusion

Conclusively, the Portloe Miracoil Ortho Mattress emerges as a beacon for economical shoppers who are willing to compromise slightly on the support layer to be rewarded in the comfort layer. If your pursuit is for a steadfast, supportive mattress that respects financial prudence, the Portloe could be your idyllic sleep companion and you could ultimately do much worse. What’s more, the 5 year guarantee and premium branding increases appeal further meaning you cannot go much wrong.

Terrific mattress overall - the very firm comfort grade provides epic lumbar support. It may take getting used to but waking up without aches is a game changer. However, portrayal of its soundlessness is a smidge overplayed, the springs can be a bit vocal when you move.

Is this mattress single-sided? How often should I rotate it?

Answer: Indeed, the mattress is single-sided. For the first three months, it's recommended to rotate the mattress from head to toe weekly. After that, a monthly rotation should suffice to maintain its longevity and comfort.
