Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

Today we're looking at the SleepSoul Paradise Pocket Cool Gel Mattress, another in a long range of new, largely similar products that all fit quite nicely into the mid-range quality but at a lower tier in terms of price. This means great news for consumers and additional choice on top! Let's dive into the specs and see what we're working with.

Let's start with that support and once again we have pocket springs of a reasonable capacity. It looks like SleepSoul have almost completely done away with their poorer performing open coil support layers and brought in higher quality pocket spring units. This is a positive consumer-centric move that will ensure better longevity and value for money from customers although it does mean there is an awful lot of very similar products in the SleepSoul lineup that all look to achieve the same thing. Unnecessary, perhaps, but a great value proposition all the same. This one features a medium tension that will give a decent level of support for your back while not proving uncomfortable for side sleepers either. The result is a goldilocks effect that proves largely suitable for most people. As always mileage may vary if you are heavier or lighter than the average and those that do need additional support should consider a firmer base.

Onto the comfort layer and this mattress has a base layer on the bottom and a single comfort layer on top. This means you do not need to flip the mattress which saves on inconvenience without proving overly detrimental to the settlement and durability. Do note that turning should still occur in line with manufacturer recommendations which will help in allowing it to last for longer and give increased comfort throughout its lifespan.

The comfort layer itself is powered by a cool gel foam. For this price point, that's fairly impressive and results in a clean and cooling nights sleep that breathes better than the competition and has many of the same bounce and sink properties of memory foam, with non of the heat retention downsides. The breathable nature of Gel Foam also means that you won't wake up throughout the night getting too hot, unlike memory foam competitors, ensuring a deeper and longer lasting nights sleep.

Finally you have that impressive 10 year warranty. Remember, the average mattress lifespan is pegged at around 7 years and so a 10 year warranty covers your mattress for entire lifespan and goes far beyond the 1 year offered by other retailers and manufacturers. It's a great product at a great price and with the reassurance to last.

Reasons to Buy

Trusted brand and retailer.

Long consumer focussed warranty.

Gel at this price with a pocket spring support is really impressive.

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

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.
  • 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.


  • 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.

What Makes The SleepSoul Paradise 600 Pocket Cool Gel Mattress Great?

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.

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.

Gel foam

Gel foam is used as a top layer and offers much of the same sort of comfort as memory foam but without the heat build up normally associated with it. All the pros and non of the cons. It's a great choice for those looking for something a bit better than traditional memory foam.

25cm deep

A 25cm mattress is a good depth for a product of quality. Plenty of room for some good quality springs and enough space for a good top layer of comfort. This side of product should just about fit a standard sheet but do not be surprised if you find you do need to upgrade to a deeper fill sheet to fit over the mattress.

Medium Support (3)

Medium support suits the vast majority of people so unless your BMI is too low or too high, you are unlikely to need a mattress with a different firmness grade.

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.

No Need To Turn

This means that the product does not need to be turned over, but make no mistake, that is not the same as saying a product does not need to be rotated. If you do not want dips in your mattress with time, be sure to rotate evenly every month where possible

Vacuum Packed & Rolled

Vacuum packing and rolled mattresses now account for 26% of all consumer mattress purchases. Growing in popularity due to their almost identical performance to that of a normal mattress, these mattresses are able to be carried up tight stairways, picked up from the store and delivered much cheaper meaning those cost savings often get passed to the consumer. Well worth consideration, the idea that a rolled mattress is inferior has long been disproven, especially with the rise of bed-in-the-box retailers like Eve and Simba

Pressure Relieving

Due to the support structure in place within this mattress it advertises as benefiting from pressure relieving properties. The way a mattress can achieve this is through the use of a good quality spring system that can contour to the body, providing tension equally across all areas of the body dependant on sleeping position and pressure

10 Year Guarantee Included

The average for the industry is one year guarantee. By offering a 10 year guarantee against this product shows just how much the retailer and the brand believe in it's abilities. Buy with confidence. 

Warranty / Guarantee

This product comes with a warranty / guarantee on purchase. This is standard EU legislation. You will also get a standard 14day distance selling period whereby you will be able to return the product provided you abide to the retailers guidelines and return policy

Breathable knitted cover and memory foam layers cushion and support the body

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.

Cool Gel foam layer regulates your body temperature for a fresher feel

Traditional memory foam has one critical pitfall around heat retention and buildup. See, the foam absorbs heat and is not particularly breathable meaning that it can cause many people to get too warm as they sleep. Cooling gel foam is different however featuring all the positives of traditional memory foam but without the pitfalls of heat build up. It's a great option for those who find comfort in the foam.

Medium firmness rating for extra support and a softer, luxurious touch

A medium tension comfort grade is a good middle-of-the-road level of firmness and softness that gives the vast majority of people a fantastic nights sleep. Dubbed the Goldilocks of mattress firmnesses, the tension is generally regarded as a one-size-fits-all that suits average weighted people who are both side sleepers and back sleepers alike. For those with a bit more weight to them you should perhaps consider a firmer tension, same too if you are lower BMI, perhaps consider a softer tension.

Individually pocketed springs minimise roll-together

A good rigid support layer with full edge to edge support means you do not get the sinking characteristic associated with poorer quality mattresses when you move toward the edge of the mattress. This is great as it prevents falling out of the bed at night, but also prevents roll off and roll together allowing both you and your partner to have uninterrupted deep sleep.

10-year SleepSoul warranty for total peace of mind

A 10 year guarantee/warranty goes far beyond industry norms and gives additional confidence in the product. Industry standards typically see the mandatory minimum 1 year being the most common with 5 year being rarer and 10 years being particularly uncommon, especially since the average mattress is replaced after 7 years.

Vacuum packed and rolled for easy transport

Rolled mattresses have advanced in recent years and given rise to numerous bed-in-a-box manufacturers like Emma, Otty, Nectar, Casper and more. The benefit of a rolled mattress is simple, they are easier to store, cheaper to dispatch and have huge logistical savings that mean the savings can be passed onto consumers. The result is that rolled mattresses are often cheaper for similar specifications than their traditional counterparts making for great savings with very little downside. With a smaller carbon footprint as the icing on the cake, rolled mattresses expand into a normal mattress once unpacked and make a lot of sense for most people.

Medium support

A medium tension mattress like this is the goldilocks of mattress tensions. Not too soft, nor too firm, medium is typically suitable for the vast majority of people that are looking for a good nights sleep. If you are of average build without back or neck problems, this should be a suitable product. If you are of lower BMI and a side sleeper, consider a softer mattress, whereas if you are of a higher BMI and suffer neck and back pain, consider a firmer tension.

No roll together

Specifically designed with roll together prevention in mind. This means the product likely has better quality internals and offers better support than other mattresses in the same price point.
