Overview

becky says

Give your body the best sleep it deserves with our Simply Bensons Zander Memory Support Mattress. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a medium tension mattress and is looking to achieve a great night's sleep at a lower price-point than what is typically demanded from some of the bigger brands. The support designator on this model makes it ideal for those who suffer from back or joint pain. The mattress comes with added edge support to maximise your sleep surface area which adds further comfort to your night’s sleep.

When it comes to the support layer on this mattress, you are getting the well-reviewed open coil springs. These springs are not considered quite as impressive as pocket springs which would typically command a much higher price but still offers more than enough support for the average person. Available in a medium tension, the springs will compress a sufficient amount to support those of low to medium build.

Onto the comfort layer and Simply Bensons have used the cost saving of open coil to splurge extra on memory foam, providing you with a deep layer that you will sink into, relieving all muscles in your body as you feel like you are floating.

With a 5 year guarantee, it's clear that the manufacturer and retailer both put a lot of care into this product, after all, if it falls short, both would be out of pocket and so it is in their best interests to ensure that the mattress stands the test of time.

Reasons to Buy

One of the major positives of this mattress is in the memory foam comfort layer. The memory foam is both deep and luxurious and will leave you with a floating feeling as you sink deep into your new mattress. This foam layer comes with additional benefits in that it can keep you snug and warm while you sleep due to the body moulding effects of the product. The open coil springs also provide more than sufficient support for people of all sizes.

Reasons to Avoid

Just as the memory foam is considered a pro, it can also be a con. If you are a hot sleeper who needs to be kept cool then we would generally dissuade people from going for a memory foam product. That said, the cover is breathable and the spring system should give an amount of airflow which should lesson the heat affects to an extent.

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.

Suitability

*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.

Performance

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • 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.

Odour

  • 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.

What Makes The Simply Bensons Zander Memory Support Mattress Great?

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

Firmness rating: Medium

A medium tension mattress is largely suitable for most people of average BMI. Not too soft, nor too firm this mattress has enough softness in the tension to allow you to sink, while providing enough support to contour to your body.

Combination mattress with supportive open coil springs and deep memory foam layer

Open coil mattresses feature a traditional spring design that dates back centuries. They are a low cost solution for bed retailers that provides a good quality sleeping solution that is capable of providing adequate body contouring and reasonable support.

Open coil spring unit offers gentle support

Open coil mattresses feature a traditional spring design that dates back centuries. They are a low cost solution for bed retailers that provides a good quality sleeping solution that is capable of providing adequate body contouring and reasonable support.

Dual performance eco-fibre layer for that slightly firmer feel

A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

Deep and sumptuous layer of pressure-relieving memory foam

Memory foam has properties that adapt shape of your body, immediately recovering its original shape once pressure is no longer applied. It adapts to your movements without sinking, ensuring that pressure is not produced, but without the wrapping feeling which would otherwise cause unnatural posture.

Quilted eco-fibre top cover for added comfort

The quilted eco-fibre top cover is made from recycled materials and gives you an extra layer of comfort

Increased edge support system to maximise sleep area

Edge to Edge support means that you get no roll-together problems while sleeping while also giving you a more well-rounded and rigid mattress edge. The benefit of this is that you can fully utilise the entire spread of the mattress without having to worry about rolling off due to edge-sinkage.

Easy-care non-turn mattress, simply rotate regularly

Non-turn mattresses do not need to be flipped as the support layer, that's the layer that is soft and spongey, is only on one side. Being on one side is more convenient for the end-user while also allowing further cost savings to be passed onto the consumer. It is a very common way of maximising the quality of a product while keeping costs down.

Mattress height: 26cm

26cm is fairly deep for a mattress and comes with enough depth to feature many good quality components and comfort layers necessary to get a good nights sleep

Made in Britain

These are made and manufactured in the Great Britain, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine Great Britain manufacturing.

Bensons For Beds and the Zander bed model they sell ought to come with a HEALTH HAZARD WARNING! As soon as I tried to sit on the edge, the bed went flying away on the wooden floor as it is on casters. I barely stopped myself from falling heavily backwards on the wooden floor. Being 64yo and in poor health also with two hernias on the spine I would have ended up in hospital! I checked the casters immediately and found that there is no mechanism to block the wheels from turning. Also found that the side wall sections on either side at the head end of the base is not solid but looks like the opening for the drawers is covered with just fabric. It will take just a second of inattention to put a foot through the fabric as I make the bed. I am all for saving the rain forest but I would like to be informed by the company that sells me goods that I am doing so instead of giving me the impression that they are skimping on wood. It was not mentioned anywhere. Both this and the loose casters that cannot be locked indicate LOW quality as I have already commented in another review. There is NO WAY this small 4ft bed is worth the 1K as advertised by Benson (Sale price 399.00). I found out too late that the company is misleading throughout as the bed is not of the expected quality and their 'blown up savings' are untruthful and their 'sale' has been ending on "Tuesday" for 7 week since the beginning of June when I purchased the bed and it is now the 19th July 2021! Plenty more to say about the comfort level not being so comfortable after all either as I can feel the springs having reached the max compression when I use the bed. 20 July 2021 Following the posting of my review I was contacted by a Danielle from Bensons for Beds expressing concern about the content of my review. However this company is starting to irate me. First of all I am being addressed as 'Hey' followed by my first name which I consider totally unprofessional. Secondly the wording asks me to contact Bensons for Beds if the problems are still present? WEEEEEELLL YES ! Since last nite Harry Potter has not flown over on his broom to perform his Polyfillus spell on the holes covered by fabric where the drawers go on both sides at the head end of the base. Or performed the Lockus - pocus spell on the casters with his magic wand. I am still chasing the bed around the bedroom! Kind of furniture one finds at Hogwarts. As one can read I have a sharp tongue and have plenty more to say especially about your misleading description of the headboard featured with the bed. It is the more expensive Remming not the Maya which has a line of studs along the top and is 40 cheaper Luckily I did not purchase a headboard or I would have got the wrong one! For the moment I will say that it is appalling negligence by Bensons for Beds not to use lockable casters and alert buyers about locking the wheels in the care and safety leaflet accompanying the bed. I am reporting it to the relevant safety standards authorities. If Bensons for Beds are concerned about my unfavourable review and want to put their money where their mouth is and supply me with a quality bed really worth 1K, has proper solid construction and implements proper safety features I may listen!

I brought the 1st bed from Bensons in 2015 and from only searching online and talking on the phone with an advisor that recommended to be best bed I ever slept on. Delivery was made 3 days after purchase. In 2017 I wanted to buy another bed but the sales advisor didn't know what to recommend at all and I ended up buying whatever I thought was good by searching on the website. The quality of the bed base was very poor and the mattress nothing to do with the previous purchase ( I have to admit it was a lower price on the full bed but I imagined the bed base would be with the same quality), also I had to wait for 1 month for delivery and ordering a base with 2 drawers I got none which made for another 2 weeks for me to wait for the switch to be made. Now, in 2021 I purchased a 3rd bed from them that was priced 1000 but the quality is so below the second bed I bought in 2018 which cost 600. Also, the initial delivery was 1 months that was delayed with 2 weeks. My next bed will definitely not be from this company as I can see the quality is going lower and lower but the prices are high. Not recommending this company anymore. P.S. All the delivery team was great evertime.

Comfortable bed. Purchased as complete bed, base + mattress. Good looking, easily assembled and comfortable. Excellent value (although it was reduced by 100 after I purchased!) Would thoroughly recommend.

So glad I bought this bed base and mattress. Recommended by Sue from the Solihull shop, really comfortable, just the right size, and would recommend Bensons any day of the week, great product and service.

Happy with my purchase, only thing Im not keen on is being able to feel the springs in the side of the mattress, although this does not affect comfort.
