Why our sleep experts loved it

With so many mattress brands and models on the market, it can be difficult to find one that meets your unique needs. Whether you’re looking for a firm mattress, a soft mattress, or something in between, there are many factors to consider when making your purchasing decision, so how do you know whether the Simply By Bensons Happy Mattress will be suitable?

Let's start with the basics, first, this is 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 its 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 night's 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.

*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.

Cheap and cheerful mattress, my 11 year old tried a few in the shop and this was the one he preferred, so that's what we got - he finds it comfortable and has said he definitely sleeps well on it. It's not going to win any awards for quality, but for the price is more than acceptable - would definitely recommend on a budget.

Great value product and perfect for the spare room. For the price it is surprisingly good quality, sturdy yet rock solid like my previous mattress. Would definitely recommend and am even considering one for my third room.

Can't get my teenage daughter out of bed now. Not over the moon about that but have to assume it means that the mattress is comfy. Wondering if you sell Wallace and Gromit beds to automatically tip her out in the morning.
