Pros & Cons

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and a decade of industry insight.

Good quality from a well-known brand that plays a part in a larger role of reasonably priced "essentials" mattresses.

Great 5 year guarantee that is market leading.

Two tension options available meaning you can instead opt for the firm model if you need more back support.

Open coil is a fairly budget to mid spring system and isn't as good at body contouring as premium pocket springs.

Lead time can be quite a long time and may require planning ahead on the customers part.

Why our sleep experts loved it

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 easy care single sided mattress comes as part of 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 By Bensons Beam 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 night's sleep regardless of how they sleep.

Reviews for the Beam 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.

Here's how the product performs based on the materials and composition when compared to other products of similar price point. These measurements are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algorithmic data points and our own hands on experience.

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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

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.

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.

The mattress is superb. The comfort is just what we wanted and being given help making sure the softness was matched personally to us was reassuring . The added extras such as the mattress protector and bed kit to keep the mattress in tip top condition make it a must have addition to our bedroom. We really appreciated the excellent communication in store and including delivery and the recycling available. We chose the added guarantee for stains and accidents which simply gave the icing on the cake for a 5 star buy.

The delivery was faultless, great guys. Despite lovely pillow top I can feel the springs when moving. I'm using a microfiber topper, which helps. It feels softer than mattress in shop. I turn it every week but indents starting to show after 3 weeks. Wouldn't buy again.

Very comfortable bed and a very reasonable price, we had tried a lot of beds and the price wasn't really an issue as my wife has health issues and spends a lot of time in bed, but this one was by far the best and it was higher than our old one which was good too.

This was bought for my 18 year old grandson since his old mattress had become uncomfortable. He has told me that at last he has been getting some good nights sleep. He says it is very comfortable and is very pleased with it. It is recommended as a good purchase.

The mattress is comfortable to lie and sleep on. It's classed as a medium mattress but I do find when sitting on the edge of it that it's very soft though this is not an issue when laying down.
