For those who don't know, Silentnight is one of the largest and most well-recognised manufacturers within the UK, shipping thousands of mattresses throughout the country every week. New from the brand is the Silentnight Thornbury Combination Mattress.
Starting with the support layer, you get an impressive helping (up to 3611) of pocket springs known as mirapocket springs (Silentnight's version) which have a tension of firm. This firm designation will prove suitable for those who are looking for a bit more back and neck support while still requiring a good degree of comfort. Ideally suited to back and stomach sleepers, this firm tension will contour to your body while you sleep, alleviating pressure in all the right places to ensure you wake up each day feeling refreshed.
Onto the comfort layer and we get a new material from Silentnight called Nanoflex which is an impressive comfort technology of microsprings that comes exclusive to the popular mattress retailer, Dreams. The Nanoflex combines with a fan-favourite in memory foam, which gives the ultimate in softness with generous helpings that allow you to sink deep into the mattress and allowing your joints to relax.
The Thornbury is based on the Risborough mattress that we have previously reviewed and takes the same firm support and hypoallergenic materials and doubles down, addressing improvements that have given the mattress a higher prestige and even more luxurious quality. Just like the Risborough, you get full edge to edge support and no roll-together giving you a truly independent sleep.
Finally you get an impressive 5 year guarantee that gives you a better-than-average amount of coverage that will ensure your investment is protected. Many retailers have adopted a single year as part of their legal obligations while a 5 year guarantee shows the huge amount of confidence that both Dreams and Silentnight both have in this product.
Reasons to Buy
Firm tension does not typically suit side sleepers, however, the deep and luxurious memory foam looks to provide enough depth and sinkage to prove a great all-rounder.
Firm tension is becoming more popular in recent years, with people preferring the firm tension and additional support offered.
Reviews from the risborough suggest this will be a fan favorite for years to come.
Hypoallergenic for those that suffer from allergies, better to be safe than sorry.
5 year guarantee is quite good, offering better than the minimum 1 year you often find.
Memory foam continues to be a fan favourite and works really well with the nanoflex micro spring layer.
Reasons to Avoid
Still somewhat new at time of writing, many of the initial reviews come from the Risborough and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
