Bensons for Beds have been expanding their range massively in recent months and a large portion of that commitment comes through their internal brand known as Simply Bensons. The brand features typically mid-range mattresses at lower than expected price points. The benefit for the consumer is simple, you get a great product at a reasonable price with a decent guarantee, what's not to love? Let's dive in and find out.

Onto the base layer and this double sided mattress comes with a reliable and reasonably well performing open coil mattress. The open coil traditional spring layer is at the low to mid range price point in terms of costs for support layers but don't let that put you off as it is both reliable and performs fairly well. This type of base layer won't contour quite as well as a pocket spring mattress, but will still offer enough resistance to prevent back pain while ensuring an even and measured tension.

The tension of this mattress is rated as a medium comfort which will make it ideal for all types of sleepers ranging from back, side and stomach sleepers.

Onto the comfort layer and the Simply Bensons Raleigh Mattress comes with a fairly luxurious and deep white fibre filling composition. White fillings typically includes the likes of polyester and other soft man made materials that are equal parts soft and durable. The result is a soft top layer of generous helpings that works hand in hand with the spring layer to create a soft and warming mattress that will give most people of average BMI a good nights sleep regardless of how they sleep.

Reviews for the Raleigh are still coming in and there are no long term reviews just yet since it is still such a new product. The lack of history should not represent too much concern however, as Bensons for Beds and Simply Bensons both have large amounts of experience in this area on top of a fantastic and market-winning 5-year guarantee which beats off the traditional 1-year normally seen in the industry.

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 Raleigh 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

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.
