Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

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.

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 Happy Mattress Great?

Deep open coil mattress springs – to evenly distribute body weight and improve support

An open coil mattress is a standard sprung mattress that has open coil springs, a very popular mattress type. Open coil traditional sprung mattresses are less expensive than pocket sprung mattresses thanks to having interconnected coils that are easier and cheaper to manufacture. A standard sprung mattress is a popular mattress style that has been around for over a century.

Contemporary quilted sleep surface – for a smooth finish, ideal for side sleepers

There are several benefits to having a quilted sleep surface in a mattress. First, it provides an extra layer of comfort and support. This can be especially helpful if you have any pressure points that need additional support. Second, it helps to keep the mattress cooler by providing ventilation. This is especially important in hot weather or if you tend to sleep hot. Third, it can extend the life of your mattress by protecting it from wear and tear.

Damask cover – soft yet durable

There are many benefits to owning a Belgian damask cover. For one, they are incredibly beautiful and add a touch of luxury to any room. They are also very durable, so you can expect them to last for many years. Additionally, they are great at insulating against both heat and cold, making them ideal for use in any climate.

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.

Quality assured – British Standard Kitemark™ accredited

The BSI Kitemark™ is one of the world's first and most reliable quality, safety, and trust symbols. Consumers and businesses have relied on the Kitemark for over 100 years as an indication of quality, security, and reliability.

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

A medium tension mattress is a type of mattress that is designed to provide moderate support for the sleeper. This type of mattress is often used by people who are combination sleepers and have mass market appeal that satisfies back, stomach and side sleepers combined. Medium tension is a great option as it can provide some relief from the pressure points that can cause pain. Additionally, a medium tension mattress can also be a good choice for people who are looking for a balance between comfort and support.

Mattress depth – 22cm

22cm 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.
