Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

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.

Reasons to Buy

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.

Reasons to Avoid

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.

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.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • 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.


  • 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 By Bensons Beam Mattress Great?

Individual encased pocket springs – for even weight distribution, minimal partner disturbance, and reactive support

There are several benefits to having pocket springs in a mattress, as opposed to other types of springs. Pocket springs are less likely to sag over time, and they provide better support by individually contouring to your body. They also minimize motion transfer, so if you have a partner who moves around a lot in their sleep, you won’t be disturbed. Additionally, pocket springs make for a more durable mattress overall.

Indulgent, quilted pillowtop sleep surface – for a cosy and luxurious feel

A pillow top on a mattress can offer a number of benefits. For one, it can provide an extra layer of cushioning and support, which can be especially beneficial for people with back pain or other joint issues. Additionally, a pillow top can help to keep the mattress feeling fresh and new for longer, as it can protect the underlying materials from wear and tear. Finally, a pillow top can also add a touch of luxury to a mattress, making it feel more inviting and comfortable.

Soft-touch knitted fabric cover – body-hugging comfort with superb breathability

A soft-touch knitted fabric cover on a mattress can provide a number of benefits. Firstly, it can help to protect the mattress from wear and tear, and secondly, it can provide a softer and more comfortable sleeping surface. Additionally, a soft-touch knitted fabric cover can help to regulate body temperature, and can also reduce noise levels.

Future friendly recycled comfort layer – soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic

This comfort layer is both deep and luxurious and provides a soft and comfortable layer that you can sink into, providing a breathable all-season mattress that will remain durable for longer thanks to great settlement properties.

New-life recycled foundation layer – for cushioned support

New life yarns are designed to provide a number of benefits in a mattress. They are intended to improve the overall comfort of the mattress, as well as increase its durability. Additionally, new life yarns can help to regulate body temperature, making the mattress more comfortable to sleep on.

Outer edge support – for increased durability

Outer edge support in a mattress is the firmness of the mattress around the perimeter. This is important because it prevents you from feeling like you are going to roll off the edge of the mattress when you are sleeping. A mattress with good outer edge support will have a firmness that is evenly distributed around the perimeter of the mattress.

Easy-care – no need to turn, with handles for easy rotation

No turn mattresses are one sided by design which means that the comfort layer is only on one side, with the support layer beneath. The benefit of these mattresses is that they are easier to maintain, with no flipping necessary. Instead, simply rotate in line with manufacturer recommendations to help increase lifespan and improve durability.

Made in the UK

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

Free full 5-year guarantee – for total peace of mind

This sort of guarantee goes beyond the average offered by retailers in the industry. 5 years is almost the full average lifespan for a mattress which gives you great piece of mind and shows just how much trust the brand and retailer have in their product.

Comfort rating – Medium or Firm

A medium and firm tension mattress offering provides numerous benefits, including improved spinal alignment, reduced tossing and turning, increased circulation, and reduced pressure points. These benefits can lead to a better night's sleep and improved overall health. Choose the correct tension to suit you with side sleepers typically preferring medium, while back sleepers appreciate the support of a firmer tension.

Mattress depth – 26.5cm

26.5cm is fairly standard in depth for a mattress and will suit the majority of fitted sheets without issue. The depth allows for a good quality spring system and space for a fairly deep offering of comfort fillings. Depth does not have a direct correlation to quality but can be a good indicator.

Part of the Simply by Bensons collection – pair with a Simply by Bensons divan base to complete the look

Simply by Bensons is a range of essential products at a budget price point that help delivery quality and good nights sleep time and time again. This product can be purchased as part of a wider set which features a divan base available in a variety of colours to suit your bedroom style.

New green polythene packaging – a mixture of natural and recycled renewable source 

Bensons for Beds try to be environmentally conscious in the way they operate and the products they sell where possible and are constantly looking for new ways to go green. A recent example of this is in the packaging they use which, in this case, utilises natural and recycled materials.
