Do you often feel restless when you sleep? If you do, you’re not alone. Approximately one-third of the general population reports experiencing some form of insomnia, and a staggering 45 percent of people report getting less than the required eight hours of sleep per night. The cause could be anything from trying uncomfortable bedding to a restless environment.The answer could be as easy as switching to the Danube mattress from the Simply Bensons range. In this review, we’ll explore the ins and outs of this unique mattress and why it’s the best choice for you.

The open coil support layer in the Danube has an coil spring design that is both cheap and reliable giving a great cost proposition for those on a budget who would rather see their investment in a good quality comfort layer to reduce pressure on their muscles and joints. We personally prefer pocket spring as far as a support layer goes, however, the costs are usually considerably more and the average user looking to upgrade their sleep experience won't notice too much difference. Coming in a medium tension it will have mass market appeal and will be ideal for those who sleep in all positions including the side.

The woven damask cover on the Danube mattress is a great choice for both comfort and durability. It’s made from a high-quality blend of polyester and cotton that’s woven together for softness and durability. A great choice that provides a sturdy foundation for the mattress while helping to maintain the Danube's shape even when you’re sleeping on it.  The tufted finish on the mattress is what allows the mattress to maintain its shape and support even after years of use, being sewn together with tiny tufts, which provides a foundation for the mattress and keeps it from sagging or looking worn out.

Reasons to Buy

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.


*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.

What Makes The Simply Bensons Danube Mattress Great?

Quality traditionalal Open Coil Mattress

Featuring quality woven damask quilted cover

Woven damask quilted covers are a fairly breathable material that is also durable in design thanks to the woven properties . Woven damask typically features a patterned textile that can be pleasing to the eye.

A tufted finish for firmer support & durability

Dual performance Fibre layer made from recycled plastic for initial comfort & added support

Dual performance fibre layers sit on the comfort layer at the top of the mattress. This layer is made from recycled materials making it a great and environmentally friendly option that is surprisingly durable and also comfortable.

Supportive edge system for durability

The supportive edge system is designed to prevent roll off while you sleep while also creating a safe and supportive edge that will avoid dipping and increase durability.

Double sided mattress, turn & rotate regularly for optimum performance

Double sided mattresses are the more popular option available when choosing a good quality mattress. While often a little bit more money, you effectively get twice the surface area to use which helps with settlement and wear giving you a typically better lifespan than single sided competitors at a price point that averages out and sometimes even comes ahead.

Divan base colours options include Dove Grey, Latte Beige & Slate

With such a range of different colours you will be able to pair your divan base with whatever decor and style you are looking for. We prefer the neutral colour of the Dove Grey which is both modern but also has mass appeal and suits many existing room designs.

Quality assured BSI British Standard Kitemark™ quality accredited mattress

The BSI kitemark is an assured standard of quality that represents high quality British manufacturing. Many competitor mattresses and bed frames comes from overseas, most commonly China, Malaysia and Brazil. The BSI accreditation is only given to the best of British manufacturing and is a testament to the quality on offer.

5-year guarantee - Total peace of mind with a 5 Year Guarantee

A 5 year guarantee is one of the better offered in the industry and covers much of the lifespan of a traditional mattress. This level of guarantee comes on more high-end mattresses and gives the consumer the confidence they need. 

Mattress Height –21.5cm

Available in Firm or Extra Firm comfort ratings

Firm tension mattresses are most often suited to those who need a bit more support, typically for their back and neck. Mileage will vary depending on your weight and BMI as the tension and how it feels will ultimately be impacted as such. We also see firm mattresses been commonly recommended for their orthopaedic support. Ideal for back and stomach sleepers, although heavier people may find it suitable..
