Overview

becky says

New for 2021 comes the Sleepsoul balance 800, a memory foam and pocket spring mattress from the popular manufacturer Birlea. The Sleepsoul sub-brand is fairly new and comes late to the game as far as bed-in-a-box mattresses are concerned, with Nectar, Otty and Emma already fairly well-positioned in the war to sell you a mattress.  For those that don't know, Sleepsoul aims to tackle the rolled mattress segment and does so with a fantastic range of hybrid mattresses like the SleepSoul Balance 800 Pocket Memory.

Let's look at that support layer, to start with you get a pocket spring base, which is one of the better quality layers we've reviewed. Available in a goldilocks-esque medium tension that will largely suit most people of average weight. We'd particularly recommend this for side sleepers who need a decent amount of support paired nicely with a fairly luxurious memory foam comfort layer.

More about that comfort layer and memory foam is a fan favourite, appearing regularly in the top search terms for mattress retailers across the UK. The memory foam has numerous benefits but the main reason people rate this layer is down to it's deep and luxurious cloud like feeling that looks you feeling floaty and hugged. There are downsides too, with memory foam being fairly un-breathable causing people to sometimes get a little too warm. We would typically recommend the SleepSoul Balance 800 Pocket Memory to those that are looking for an all-season mattress that do not get too warm at present while sleeping. 

A combination of the comfort and support layers means you get full body contouring and deep and relaxing memory foam. Sleepsoul have won numerous which best buy awards to date and look to be a customer favorite as we move into 2022.

As an additional benefit, the 10 year warranty is far better than the market standard of 1 year that we see from many retailers and manufacturers. The standard lifespan for a mattress hovers around 7 years and so the 10 years gives full lifespan coverage.

Reasons to Buy

Fantastic 10 year warranty is market leading.

Rival to bed in a box manufacturers like Otty, Nectar and Emma. The benefit to the consumer though is since they are a late contender, the pricing has had to be extremely competitive.

Reasons to Avoid

Memory foam hugs you as you sleep, sometimes a pro but sometimes a pro..blem as the temperature regulation of foam is often a bit off, retaining heat and causing the sleeper to overheat and sweat. Given the depth of foam included in this model we do not expect this to be a huge problem.

Being such a new mattress there are no substantial longevity tests just yet.

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 wizard 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.

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

What Makes The SleepSoul Balance 800 Pocket Memory Mattress Great?

Soft-touch knitted cover

Soft touch covers are commonplace in the mattress industry. These covers are still hard wearing enough to last the lifetime of the product but soft enough to the touch to still be comfortable even with the thinnest of sheets on top

Hypoallergenic and breathable

A Hypoallergenic mattress is one that is unlikely to cause allergies thanks to the materials that make up its composition. This is all thanks to a reduced number of allergens in the compound that are gentle on the skin and won't cause irritation while also reducing the effects of allergy triggers like dust mites and bacteria.

Easy care, no need to turn

Great for the environment, and rolled for easy delivery

Rolled mattresses are a great option for those with narrow hallways and staircases that would not easily accommodate a full sized traditional mattress. What's more, since they are rolled and tightly packed the shipping costs are lower as are the logistical warehousing costs. These reduced costs often allow the retailer and manufacturer to sell the equivalent rolled mattress at a lower price than a traditional mattress, saving you money and getting you better value.

Depth: 20cm

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches, with most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches. Generally, the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. But quality is important as a well-built 10-inch mattress can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a budget 12-inch mattress. This 8 inch mattress site just above the most popular section of the scale, generally the safe choice to cover a wide range of sleepers.

Memory Foam

memory foam is one of the most well known materials used in the upper layer of mattresses. Memory foam basically contours to your entire body with moulding properties. Designed by NASA, this material rebounds to your touch and feels like you are floating on a cloud. Memory foam does not necesserily mean soft either, you can still have firm mattresses for those that want them with a bit of memory foam.

Reflex foam

Reflex foam is basically like memory foam without the memory part. Reflex foam is used more as a supportive layer than a comfort layer and is often used as an alternative to conventional spring systems.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Removable cover

Removable covers are great. We don't typically replace mattresses for 7-8 years. That's a lot of body fluids and protectors and sheets can only do so much. To that end getting that extra layer of cleanliness goes a huge way toward ensuring you get longevity out of your product.

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Rolled-up

Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

20cm deep

A 20cm deep mattress is typical for the industry. There is enough room for some good quality springs and materials and enough room for a decent top layer of comfort. Bed sheets will nothave an issue fitting over this size of mattress

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Balanced support, rated medium-firm

Responsive 5cm layer of comfort memory foam

Memory foam offers body hugging comfort which us largely suitable for all sleeping positions and with superior motion absorption you'll find it easier than ever to get to sleep with a partner that tosses and turns during the night. Further benefits come in the form of good pressure relief with hypo allergenic properties that helps to repel mold and mildew while being resistant to dust mites.

Firm base of flex support foam

Pressure-relieving for your back, hip and joints

Great-value memory foam and pocket sprung mattress

Pocket springs are always my default go-to when it comes to recommendations surrounding support systems. See, pocket springs just do it better thanks to their individual and pocketed nature they are able to contour to your body better, reacting to each and every movement your body makes and allowing for full zoned support. Generally perform better than poorer reflex foam and open coil spring units.

Featuring 2cm of comfy memory foam

Memory foam offers body hugging comfort which us largely suitable for all sleeping positions and with superior motion absorption you'll find it easier than ever to get to sleep with a partner that tosses and turns during the night. Further benefits come in the form of good pressure relief with hypo allergenic properties that helps to repel mold and mildew while being resistant to dust mites.

Memory foam contours to your shape for head-to-toe pressure relief

Memory foam is one of the most desirable and in demand comfort layers around, outperforming others when it comes to sheer desire. This foam was first developed with NASA and was first used for commercial applications shortly after. The soft and body moulding properties of this layer makes it very appealing to those looking for a weightless nights sleep. Be aware however that temperature regulation continues to be an issue with this layer, though there has been improvement in recent years with additional cooling solutions offered through select ranges.

Great total body support with 800 pocket springs

Pocket springs are always my default go-to when it comes to recommendations surrounding support systems. See, pocket springs just do it better thanks to their individual and pocketed nature they are able to contour to your body better, reacting to each and every movement your body makes and allowing for full zoned support. Generally perform better than poorer reflex foam and open coil spring units.

Each pocket spring reacts to your movement with no roll-together

Pocket springs are always my default go-to when it comes to recommendations surrounding support systems. See, pocket springs just do it better thanks to their individual and pocketed nature they are able to contour to your body better, reacting to each and every movement your body makes and allowing for full zoned support. Generally perform better than poorer reflex foam and open coil spring units.

Medium firmness rating for the best comfort and support

Dreamy knitted cover for extra comfort

Single-sided for easy care - no-turn

Non turn mattresses have a few benefits, most importantly that they do not need to be flipped, saving time effort and energy that can be better focussed toward getting a good nights sleep. Do be aware however that you should still be rotating your mattress in line with the manufacturers guidelines for the product. 

Arrives rolled up - better for you and the environment

Rolled mattresses are a great option for those with narrow hallways and staircases that would not easily accommodate a full sized traditional mattress. What's more, since they are rolled and tightly packed the shipping costs are lower as are the logistical warehousing costs. These reduced costs often allow the retailer and manufacturer to sell the equivalent rolled mattress at a lower price than a traditional mattress, saving you money and getting you better value.

Depth: 23cm

23CM of mattress height is about standard for a good quality product. While the height of a mattress does not necessarily correlate to the quality, it does become harder to get good quality materials and fillings into a smaller frame. To that end, a mattress of 23cm is a good sign that the mattress may be a quality product. For this size of mattress you should just about be able to use normal fitted sheets without issue.

10 Year Warranty

A mattress warranty covers physical defects in a mattress, such as sagging over a certain threshold when not in use. Most mattress warranties last between 5-20 years, but as it is recommended to replace your mattress every 7-10 years this warranty will cover the life of your mattress.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

23cm deep

23cm Or 9 inches is slightly larger than the industry standard 7 inches. Most offer a range between 10 to 14 inches and the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. 9 Inches sits comfortably in the lower-middle weight range.

Customer Reviews For The SleepSoul Balance 800 Pocket Memory Mattress

Based on 587 reviews

This is a really comfortable, good quality mattress. When it arrived (in an amazingly small box), the mattress was well wrapped up in plastic and there was a little tool to slice the plastic open without slicing the mattress, plus instructions for the mattress. It was simple and straightforward and the mattress was ready to sleep on in just an hour or so. There was no obvious chemical smell, just a slight whiff if I put my nose right on it as soon as it came out of the wrapping. I haven't been bothered by any smell when sleeping on it. I bought it as an urgent need because the old one was giving me back pain. After two nights on this mattress, the pain was gone and i've had a couple of weeks of very comfortable nights with much better sleep so far. The only thing i'm not so pleased with is the edges squish down when you sit on them. I guess they have to in order to fit inside the small box but I prefer the edge of a mattress to keep its shape when I sit on it. It's not a major problem as I sleep alone but if I shared it and had to sleep near the edge, i'd feel as if I was going to roll out of bed. I'd want a king size if I was to share it. I will also get a mattress topper just to increase the comfort factor even more (and to fulfil the conditions of the guarantee). Overall, I am very happy with this mattress, it's great to feel comfortable and well supported. With the discount, it's amazing quality for the price. So glad I bought it; my back thanks me every morning.

Easy to manoeuvre on delivery being vacuum packed and boxed. Ordered two mattresses for children moving from cot beds to single beds. Had them out of the packaging for about 6/7 hours before first use which seemed ample. Both kids slept well and said they were comfortable to sleep on. We lay on them after unpacking and they were very comfortable and stable. They feel like they offer the support from the traditional pocket sprung aspect but have the extra comfort with the thin memory foam top without being too thick to get that sinking feeling when youre on thicker foam. Based on experience so far would definitely recommend them for the price. We were hesitant as wanted good mattresses for our children so were originally thinking of going for one of the more major brands. So glad we didnt though, we went based on the amount of such good reviews and these have offered such good value

I bought 2 of these for a 16 year old and a 19 year old and they love them, I normally only buy silent night but the reviews were great so I risked it. I thought there cheap enough to try, well the risk paid off. You won't find better for that price range. Infact you can probably spend double on a silent night and it will still be inferior. I've just ordered a third for my 5 year old his mattress doesn't really need changing but for that price I thought i'd upgrade the little one as well. I hope that sleepsoul keep doing a great job and making top quality affordable mattresses because they're great and i'll be picking a king size up for the wife and myself when ours needs replacing.

5

I did quite a bit of shopping around for a mattress and settled on this is the right balance between cost and (hopefully) quality for me. And im really happy so far. Its super comfortable, with enough firmness to feel supported. A huge improvement on my previous lumpy, spring mattress and has already helped me sleep better. Im really happy with the quality for what I paid, and a ten year warranty shows the confidence the manufacturers have in their product. It arrived in a long, narrow box that was easy to move around before unpacking, and the process of getting it onto the bed was quick and straightforward.

5

Brilliant quality for my little boy could have got him something cheaper but wanted something good quality that would last! A good firm mattress, all foam so no noisy boingy springs (and no jumping up and down on the bed for him) another good point for me is that you can take the cover off and freshen it up in the machine a must when your little ones are ill i think!! Hypo-allergenic too which will help with hay-fever when it peaks in the summer months!I would consider this mattress when the time comes for a new one for me.

5

The mattress swells to its final shape within hours of unpacking it. (Unpacked and laid on the bed at 12:00 and when I returned at 18:00 it was already fully inflated? and really firm to the touch. However, to give it more time to breathe and make sure it was fully ready I left it till 21:00 to make the bed. I had a great night sleep. The mattress moulds comfortably to my body. On hot days, it doesnt make me sweat but keeps me in a comfortable temperature throughout the night.

5

Had my mattress for about a month now and can honestly say it's the best I've had. It did take me about a week to get used to it, never had a memory foam before but wanted something that offered orthopaedic support so thought I should give it a try.Really pleased I did, the mattress jsut seems to offer support wherever I need it, very clever. I would say it gives the best of both worlds, a great night sleep whilst looking after you.

5

Very comfy, no creaking when you move and no rolling into the middle of the bed like I did with my last (battered) mattress. I was a bit wary buying a mattress on the internet without having tested it first but it had good reviews and turned out to be worth the risk. Good price too. I've recommended my brother to get one now as he said he's looking for a good value firm mattress. Feel much less achey when I wake up now.

5

I was looking for a cheap orthopaedic mattress, my chiropractor recommend I try a firm memory foam mattress, this one fits the bill perfectly.It's very supportive, suprisingly firm, I tried lots of memory foam mattresses in the shops and couldn't find one that suited. Bit of risk buying it online without trying it but no regrets.My back ache feels better already!

5

This mattress is really, really firm. Abit like laying on a slab for the first few days. All of which is exactly what I wanted. After sleeping in it for just over 2 weeks it's one of the best purchases I have every made! Sometimes I even sit on it play xbox for 5-6 hrs where my old mattress would get a dint init this just pops back to shape! Definetly recommend.

5

It has a heavy smell which will not go away. The mattress itself is a cut out cushion from goodness know where. It's covered very nice which my partner and myself believe is a trick. It's uncomfortable and not supportive. Unfortunately we threw our own mattress away when this one arrived as the description of this one sounded very convincing on the website

5

Not quite sure what to expect as this mattress is at the budget end of the spectrum but can honestly say its brilliant and wonderfully comfortable. Not too firm and can feel myself sinking into it. Its actually more comfortable than the very expensive spring and memory foam one we have on the kingsize. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend

4

I haven't given this 5 stars as the mattress is in my guest room so I haven't tried it out. I have a 2000 in my own room which is super confirtable and has a thick memory foam topper. The 800 has a much thinner top but it feels firm. It was easy to unpack and place on the bed and took it's shape quickly. I'm really happy with my purchase!

5

Great mattress! just make sure you allow enough room when you open! this mattress. Comes in a vacuum pack (as thin as a biscuit)! the moment you open the pack and allow air in, boom!! the mattress expands to the size it should be! I almost took my my mum out as she was stood close to the wall when we started to open it!

5

Cooler than our previous similar mattress. Think that's because the memory foam part is thinner but still gives the same comfort. Very comfortable medium-firm mattress on our sprung bed. We have another sleepsoul in our daughter /spare room and that is equally as good if not a bit better! def buy this brand again.

5

Replacement mattress for teenage daughter who has outgrown her 'child bed'. She wanted a memory foam mattress and is delighted with it. She is enjoying better quality sleep. I was concerned before it arrived about reviews saying these mattresses had a 'smell'. We did not experience any smells!

5

Friends told me it might be hard to get used to. Nope, slept like the proverbial baby, and realised how badly I'd been sleeping on the old mattress. Very comfortable, very good value for money. It's destined for the spare room because we're moving bedrooms around at the moment, but very happy with it.

5

This mattress can't be beaten at the price I paid! it's of great quality and so much more comfortable then more expensive ones i've had, so I ended up buying another one for my mum who has described it like sleeping on a cloud! it's comes vacuum packed and is quite fun to open up as it self inflates....

5

Blown away by this mattress. Its incredibly comfy and stylish. I had initial reservations about buying a lesser known brand, but it didnt disappoint. Its amazingly good quality, made to a high standard. Theres nothing bad to say about it. Im getting a decent nights sleep for the first time in ages!

5

Amazing how it comes in a box then opens out the way it does. Mattress seems really good and excellent quality, daughter finds it firm but I think that is mostly due to her old one being so worn.Fits great in the cabin bed - sits nice and high so she doesn't bang her legs.Highly recommend.

5

Ordered this for my daughters new bed frame, wasn't very expensive, read all the reviews most of which were very good & the product proved to be as described. It came sensibly packaged, was easy to unwrap, was a good price, has a 10 year guarantee & is extremely comfortable. A great buy!

5

Purchased this mattress for my teenage son who's plays a lot of sport. I wanted something supportive for him. He is very happy with it, it's firm and pressure relieving just like it was described. I'm happy too, cheaper than I expected and looks really well made, a win win.

5

I had bought one mattress back in 2013 from this website and was very good. Now I decorated my daughter's room and got her a bunk bed so needed two mattresses. I bought these from this website again and they are really good quality. Value for money. Would definitely recommend it.

5

We had a guest staying over on the night of the mattress delivery. It came early afternoon and was heavy to get to the bedroom (recommend them two man option if you have no help to lift it) but easy to unpack once we got there. The guest found the bed really comfy so were very happy.

5

Great service Supper fast delivery and lovely delivery drivers Dead easy to pop out of wrapping Not as comfortable as I thought it would be but it's getting better with every week. Probably takes time to mould to body. Super value for money and not an open coil spring in sight !

5

Easy to access.Very good instructions. Mattress is superb.Great sleeps since.The amount of plastic wrapping cannot be good for the environment, I guess that's the trade off for minimizing the bulk on delivery.Keep working on this please to improve your cf.Otherwise fabulous

5

So pleased I tried this mattress after reading the other reviews. Its very comfortable and I feel supported. I do suffer from lower back pain if the mattress is too soft and wake up with numb arms or hips if its too hard, this is just right. Great value for money too!

4

Ok for the price point. Probably would have gone for a higher end version as it isnt as comfortable as the picture and descriptions looked on the website.Still.. Quite astounding that it can be packed into such a small box so easier to handle by one person.

5

Offers excellent support and is great value for money. Was initially sceptical about purchasing but those worries were unfounded as the topper is amazing as previous reviews say.Do not be put off buying one if you need a good nights sleep, just buy one!

5

Firm and comfortable. Supportive to my joints. Delivered vacuum packed so very easy to get up the stairs! Really impressed. Didn't notice the 'smell' people talk about until I literally shoved my face in the mattress and took a sniff! :)

5

This mattress is really comfy, it came rolled and soon sprung into shape when unpacked, with no nasty smells as is the case with some foam mattresses. Can`t comment on longevity as I have only just bought it but seems well made. Very pleased overall.

5

Im really pleased with this mattress for the price. Took a while for the mattress to settle and was a bit harder than I thought, however once mattress settled and I had adjusted it was great. Sleeping really well. Very pleased with my new mattress.

5

I bought this mattress for one of the guest rooms and I have had two separate guests sleeping in there since the purchase. Both have said that the mattress is extremely comfortable and much better than the previous mattress which was in there !

4

Great price and as good as any of the advertised mattress in box brands. I like that its hybrid (spring and memory) its not quite as special as the one mattress I had in my life which ive never managed to find again though... But a close 2nd.

5

VERY FIRM, ideal if you need to lay flat. whilst being rigid it takes a few days for your body to get used to it. Its then like sleeping on air.The firmness rating of this is 5/6 however when compared to other brands this is equal to an 8/9

5

Most comfortable mattress ever had. I like a soft bed but in the past it's proved not good for my back. This mattress a medium firm does wonders for my back yet is extremely comfortable for me - not too firm at all I'm very pleased

5

I would say the mattress isn't firm, fine for a young child as it's less weight, for an adult it was to squidgy for me, but I guess that this is because it doesn't have that many pocket springs. Good value for money and fine for children.

5

Bought this mattress for my 3 year old son who moved into his first big bed. I searched for ages before stumbling on this website and I could not be happier with the product and the service. My son slept for over 12 hours the first night!

5

Not too soft and not too hard. Perfect for someone who has back problems. My partner has extreme back issues and he swears by this mattress. I had never thought it would be as good as it is. Worth the money. Very happy with the purchase

5

Although it arrived in a box, the mattress very quickly sprung into shape. It is early days but so far I am impressed with the quality of the mattress for the price. It is really comfortable and offers good support. Excellent value

5

Great purchase, bit cautious about buying a mattress over the internet, no need, the whole experience was perfect. Most importanly the mattress has improved our quality of sleep dramatically and for such a reasonable expenditure.

5

firm, quality mattress. Comes easily packaged. You just open and it unrolls itself. Cutter for the packaging is provided. You do need to be careful not to catch the mattress with it, but easy to manage. Happy with purchase again.

5

Bought this for my teenage daughter. She is delighted with it and finds it very comfortable. Arrived rolled up but simply opened it and left it to air overnight to allow it to re-shape which it did. Excellent value for money

5

-Mattresses is firm but not too much, the memory foam makes it very comfortable.-Excellent value for money.-When my partner moves, I don't feel it at all ! Overall, I would definitely buy it again and recommend to others.

5

Happy with my purchase, I wanted a mattress that was firm. I lead quite an active life and thought it would be a good prememtive measure for looking after my back.So far so good, only had it 3 weeks but no complaints at all.

5

We got this mattress to replace an old one that was under our 3inch memory foam topper therefore we can't give a true review of what it's like to sleep on directly but it is well made and feels fine under our topper.

5

Slept on this mattress at a relatives house, best night sleep for ages. So as soon as I got home I went online to buy one. Cheaper than I expected and just as comfy as I remembered.Saving up now for one for the spare room.

5

I've not personally slept on this, it is for my eldest son, he tells me it's the best mattress he's ever slept on. Looks more expensive than it is and I could get it to fit his Ikea bed which is a real bonus.

5

I wanted an orthopaedic mattress without breaking the bank, this mattress ticks all the boxes.My husband agress, says his back has been this good since he was a teenager.All in all a perfect mattress.

5

Good choice for a firm mattress! Very supportive even on the sides where i like to sit and get dressed.Many a good nights sleep has been had since we purchased this mattress a little over a month ago.

5

Ordered saturday delivered monday. Text the night before with delivery window time then call from driver 1 hour before delivery. Excellent. Mattress is super comfortable would definitely recommend it.

5

It's very firm so great if you have back problems. I'm still struggling to get used to it but I'm not sleeping on it every night which is possibly why. It is very good value for money.

5

was dubious at first as it arrived rolled up, but no need to worry.. going to bed is now worry free as I wake up without the extra aches and pains my mattress used to cause, highly recommend it

5

A great mattress delivered quickly and at a very good price, the quality and features are excellent and far outstrip some alternative products that retail for around the same price as I paid.

5

I ordered a super king size as this comes rolled and is easy to get through areas where traditional mattress of this size can't venture. It's supportive and relatively comfortable.

5

It's very firm and supportive. This is definitely not a complaint though because 'firm' is exactly what I wanted. Makes it much easier to get out of bed when I have a bad back.

5

Prompt delivery efficient packaging which included a small knife to cut through the plastic wrapping clear warning regarding the need to stand clear when the mattress started to unroll.

5

This matress is perfect for me, very comfortable, soft and supportive. Not much support on the edges but doesnt seem to make a difference during the night. Very happy with this product.

5

Best Mattress i've Ever Bought. I'm Disabled and I'd Thoroughly Recomend It To Anyone With Back Problems . It Was Delivered 2 Days After I Bought It Online . 10/10 From Me.

5

Great mattress, firm and comfortable at the same time. Eactly as described and comes with a handy removable cover.Sleeping much better now thanks. A great buy and good value for money.

4

I was a little concerned the layer of memory foam on top seemed thin however actually really comfortable medium-firm, no roll together, not too hot, quite springy, decent thickness

5

Deep layer of comfy memory on top a normal foam mattress, simple but very comfortable and support my whole body no matter what position I sleep. Could not be happier with it.

5

Most comfortable mattress I've ever had. Its perfect. Amazing value for money too. Pleased I took a risk on buying a mattress I had never tried in a shop and it paid off!

5

Great mattress for my six year old. I am sure she will get a food few years out of it, due to it only being a single, and her probably wanting a double bed in a few years.

5

I had pain in my neck and also an overall discomforting sleeping nights.I also bought a memory foam pillow in combination with the mattress and I am feeling much better.

5

We wanted a good value firm mattress, That's also not like a concrete block, this fits the bill perfectly, firm but yet still wonderfully comfortable and supportive.

5

Bought for our guest room, but tried out by us. An excellent mattress, very comfortable, and wed certainly be happy to buy one for ourselves when ours needs replacing.

5

Quality mattress at a very reasonable price. Better than some of the big name brands. Excellent overnight service from company. Would recommend to family and friends.

5

A good all-foam mattress which is great for size, not too heavy and very easy to transport because of good packing.Returns to normal shape every time after sleep.

5

I bought this for my daughter a month ago. She loves it and finds it very comfortable, so much so that she doesn't want to get out of bed in the mornings :)

5

Next day delivery fabulous qualitynext day delivery fabulous quality exceptionally good price . Second time ive used them and would recommend them unreservedly

4

Good product but firmer than we expected - advertised as medium and would say its closer to med-firm. I still love it though, can't feel movement from partner.

5

This mattress was my first memory foam mattress so I had reservations. I now wish Id switched before! Amazing comfort and the best sleep Ive had in ages.

5

Still early days but we are getting along very well so far! ive never had such a sleek designed mattress and the way it is delivered compact is really handy.

5

The mattress is quickly delivered and comes rolled up so it is easy to handle. It is a decent mattress for a guest room for occasional use and it is cheap

5

Absolutely amazing, so comfortable but best part was the price. Quick delivery and well worth the money. Thank you!! ps definitely recommend this mattress

5

A firm but comfortable mattress, the memory foam feels so supportive, I have already recomended it to my sister who is looking for a memory mattress too.

5

Nice and firm. Looks smart, easy enough to set up in the bedroom before unpacking and expanding. I've slept really well for the past week since I got it.

5

After many, many years of broken sleep, sore backs and general discouragement for sleep, I have a new found affinity for it! Best investment of my life!

5

First and foremost the comfort of the mattress is fantastic add to this the the low cost and you have an all round product that would be hard to beat.

5

Good quality and suited our price range. Feels comfy and firm. Yes you might find a more comfortable mattress but you pay much more. Good allrounder.

5

Really pleased with the mattress. Came pre rolled so handling was much easier. Simple set up instructions. Mattress very comfortable and not to soft.

5

I purchased this for my 101 year old mother and she is extremely happy with it as it gives her more support than the conventional mattress she had.

5

Soft top layer pulls you in and molds to your contours while the base offers great support. I imagine it would be like being cuddled by a big bear

5

Very comfortable got this mattress for my daughter's single bed she says it is very comfortable and supporting. A brilliant buy for the money.

5

Read the bad reviews really happy my daughter loves it really good night's kip it's better than our silentnight which cost double to this

5

Comfy mattress, and great that it comes vacuum packaged - delivery to doorstep was fine, as was easy to get upsatirs then open up and unroll.

5

Lovely firm mattress. A bit too firm for the first few days but you, or it, soon adapt and its a pleasure to sleep on it. Great for my back.

5

Bought this for my son its excellent quality fir the price and really comfortable if you dont want to spend loads of money this is perfect

5

Mattress came compressed and rolled for easy transfer. Got it up my narrow, windy cottage stairs easily.Firm and provides good support.

5

Well firm mattress which is important for the size.It has the tipical odour of new foam but is not too strong and it disappears quckly.

5

Good value for money. Very firm as required by my invalid wife who has Parkinsons and needs to position herself in bed using her arms.

5

A fair price for a good mattress. Bought for my daughter and her partner both in their 20s and they are finding it comfortable so far.

5

Very pleased with this mattress. My aching back from my old mattress is a thing of the past.Should have bought one of these ages ago.

We chose this mattress as we needed to get this up into the attic as it we have a narrow staircase. The mattress is very comfortable.

Great mattress, it has the exact firmness I wanted. Keeps its shape very well and evident that high quality materials have been used.

5

Good, firm support. Excellent value for money. Slight smell disappeared quickly- I slept on it the night I got it. Would buy again.

We bought this a few years back for our daughter and just purchased another. Not the cheapest but worth every penny. Pure quality!
