becky says

This is the Simply Bensons Drake Mattress, a new model sold exclusively for Bensons for Beds under their Simply Bensons umbrella of products . Featuring a quality traditional open coil tension,  the product will appeal to those looking for additional value for a low cost proposition. 

You're sure to get a long term perfect night's sleep with the 5 year guarantee, with total peace of mind covering almost the entire lifecycle of the product. The industry does not typically offer this degree of guarantee with many manufacturers and retailers still standing behind a paltry 1 year guarantee. 

Tension is typically derived from the support layer of spring coils but comfort layers can also play a role. With all layers working together, this mattress achieves a healthy medium tension which is suitable for the majority of people who sleep on their back, side or stomach. Thanks to it's mass market appeal this should be an easy decision for the average person looking for a quality but modestly priced new mattress.

With a quilted cover combined with a dual performance fibre layer for the upper comfort layer, you get a durable and soft top that works well with the traditional spring base layer. The mattress plays it a little safe and clearly markets towards budget but doing so will assure a great nights sleep at an extremely competitive price point that should delight those looking to save.

Reviews are good with customers happy about the great value for money and quality components. Long term reviews are going to be waiting a while since this is still such a new product on the market, however, with Bensons for Beds backing and nothing that stands out as a concern, there is no reason this shouldn't stand the test of time.

Reasons to Buy

Popular sizes available however no super king at the time of writing.

Great reviews so far early in the mattresses life-cycle.

No euro sizes with super king also being missed.

Delivery timings could be better.

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 Drake Mattress Great?

Quality traditional 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.

Quilted Top Layer of White Fibre Fillings for added comfort

White fibre fillings are great because they are largely hypo-allergenic while still being soft and comfortable. A fine addition to any bedroom for allergy sufferers and still a great choice for those looking for an additional bit of comfort in a mattress.

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.

Easy-care no turn, rotate only mattress

Rotating the mattress remains an important step in maintenance. The comfort and support layers of a mattress settle over time and it is necessary to rotate at certain periods to help reduce risk of dipping while you sleep in the same patterns and locations across the mattress.

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: 19.5cm

A 19.5cm depth mattress is considered a fairly average size for the industry and is generally sufficient enough to house a decent support system and comfort layer. 19cm is not considered suitable for bunk beds as the depth is a little too thick and could cause the child to roll over the protected guide rail.

Medium comfort rating

Medium mattresses are the industry go-to standard for what goes into a mattress. On average a medium firmness mattress will generally be suitable for you provided you are also, average. Lower BMI than average, look at a softer mattress. Higher BMI than average, or, backpain, look at a firmer mattress.

The line up offers low prices and high quality by skipping the traditional retailer > brand > consumer model and instead offering their own products direct to consumer.
