Overview

becky says

Today we’re taking a peak at one of the more popular options from one of the largest mattress manufacturers in the UK, Slumberland. Slumberland has an established and rich heritage that has been long established in the industry with positive feedback from thousands of customers.

Getting a good night's sleep is crucial to our health and the mattress you choose can play a large role in maximising support, comfort and ultimately your sleep. Choose correctly and you live better, choose wrong and it can be a costly mistake. Fear not, we’ve spent the last couple of weeks trialing the Slumberland Rollo Hybrid Duo Mattress, a mix of memory foam and pocket spring which is typically an upper-segment high quality high specification combination. 

When it comes to materials utilised in mattresses, the list is constantly growing to now feature hybrid options and a much more preference-driven market that has seen rise to latex and natural mattresses depending on your preference. 

Here’s the kicker though, regardless of which option you choose, mattresses are expensive with even a cheaper one coming in at over £200 in a double, and that’s a basic coil spring with polyester fillings. According to the NBF (National Bed Federation), you’ll likely be utilising this product for around 7 years before considering a replacement, that makes it more important than ever to ensure the mattress will stand the test of time. The typical signs of use over time are in dipping, uneven wear and squeaky springs, all of which culminate in aches, pains and generally poor sleep.

So where does all this lead you ask? Well we’ve been testing out the Slumberland Rollo Hybrid Duo Mattress which features generous helpings of memory foam combined with a spring design in a pleasant, goldilocks effect medium tension. The mattress doesn’t need turning saving further on unnecessary back strain and has an eco-friendly cover that is made (but does not feel like) plastic bottles. Pricing this mattress correctly is key to Slumberland and while it’s not the cheapest, it is fairly reasonable considering the quality of materials.

Testing the Slumberland Rollo Hybrid Duo Mattress

After spending a few weeks sleeping on the mattress and utilising a standard sprung divan base, we’ve been able to assess the support and comfort on offer while sleeping in most standard positions, including back and side sleeping. As a result, we’ve been able to ascertain overall comfort, support and ultimately, the value you should achieve from this sort of considered purchase.

The Delivery Process

The first part of our journey began with the delivery of the mattress, in our initial selection of the product we were unsure which version we were going to receive, as there were both rolled and unrolled options available. Fortunately we received a rolled variety which made it far easier to get up the stairs and into the main bedroom. Regardless of how the item arrives, it is still very heavy and will require two people to easily navigate the basic terrain of staircases. The next part of the process was simple, open up the rolled package carefully (ideally not using scissors but cut away from the product if you insist) on the top of your bedframe and you’ll almost immediately see it suck in air and begin inflating. From here you have to leave it alone for at least two hours, but we left it alone for a further 10 hours to ensure even and assured inflation.

Laying on the mattress for the first time

Slumberland rates this mattress as a medium, typically seen as the ideal among the professionals as a easy to recommend one size fits all approach to mattress purchasing which generally ensures a good night's sleep for a large portion of the general public. 

Featuring a depth of 28cm and an impressive 1900 springs of both pocket spring and micro spring assortments, the base layer is able to mould to my body freely providing instant pressure relief through near-perfect body contouring that hugs to you while offering measured and even tension across the neck and back as you sleep. 

For those who sleep on their side, our tests found that being positioned on your side gave enough movement and sinking to ensure there was no rolling of my shoulder or poor spinal alignment through my hip not sinking adequately. As a result I’m pleased to report that this mattress appears suitable for those with both broad shoulders and those with larger hips making it ideal for numerous different frame types who are side sleepers.

The quilted surface is easy to get used to, being soft and breathable you wouldn’t know that it is produced from plastic bottles that have been upcycled.

How did I sleep on it?

Despite being a medium rated product, I did find the support to be firmer than previous mattresses I had slept on, but not in an intrusive way, rather, you always knew that you were being properly supported regardless of the position you find yourself in. What was particularly reassuring was the edge to edge support which was very handy as I often find myself utilising the edge of the mattress throughout the night as I move about.

The appeal of this mattress carried throughout the entire night, leaving me waking refreshed and without the normal weird stretch and bone cracking I tend to have to do every morning typically, ultimately the memory foam kept me warm (but not too warm) while the pocket springs supported me enough to offer a great night's sleep. This only improved further in the days that followed as I got more used to the support and what to expect, allowing my body to truly and properly relax.

Additional Information

Not having to turn the mattress is quite nice, especially with the volume of springs in this particular model making it particularly heavy. Remember though, turning and rotating are not the same thing and the manufacturer does recommend you still rotate the product in line with specifications. 

Perhaps the most impressive feature of this product is it’s guarantee. Notice how we mentioned previously that most people replace their mattress at the 7 year point? Well this particular model comes with a staggering 8 years, that’s beyond the typical replacement period and helps highlight just how much faith the manufacturer and retailer have in this product. Compound that with most of the industry still stuck in the past with 1 year guarantees and what you have is a truly impressive mattress at an extremely reasonable price.

Do I recommend the Slumberland Rollo Hybrid Duo Mattress? Absolutely, the entire experience from start to finish was delightful and the medium tension, pocket springs and memory foam combination is an absolute no brainer that will appeal to most people with average BMI (with a swing of around 20%) who are either side, back or front sleepers. Regardless of your preference, this mattress really does tick most boxes and should be on anyone's consideration list

Reasons to Buy

The 8 year guarantee is a stand-out for the industry and one of the better we have experienced, combine that with the 100 night trial offered by the retailer.

The combo of materials and tension is in the goldilocks triangle, I don't think you can go much wrong. other reviewers also speak favourably of the product.

Reasons to Avoid

Very heavy mattress regardless of it's rolled designation, rotating as part of the manufacturer recommendations is a little cumbersome in larger sizes, however, this is sort of the cost of dealing with high quality mattresses since high quality generally means more springs which adds more weight.

Key Performance Indicators

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.

Performance

  • 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.

What Makes The Slumberland Rollo Hybrid Duo Mattress Great?

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.

QUICK 7 DAY DELIVERY

BSI - British Standard Kitemark™ accredited

The UK has some of the strictest standards of manufacture with which to comply too. This is great news for the consumer as you can be sure of a quality product.

£10 donated to Mind for every Rollo Mattress purchase

Mind is a mental health charity that helps people with these problems to help ensure those in need get the support they need. The partnership with Bensons for Beds means that each product sold within the Rollo range helps contribute to this cause.

Rolled up hybrid mattress for quick and easy delivery

Roll up mattresses, also known as bed-in-a-box mattresses are fairly new to the scene, first cropping up via the likes of Eve and Simba back in 2016. Since then there has been a rise in popularity due to their lower price point (due to delivery and storage costs) and their convenience for getting up stairs. Typically these mattresses have much the same support and comfort as a traditional mattress even with the positive points mentioned.

1900 full height and mini springs for superior core support and comfort

Typically, the more springs the better. The average mattress has around 1000 springs and so anything more than that is considered good. The firmness/tension of a mattress is also not dictated by the amount of springs and so you do not need to worry about the firmness being unsuitable when it comes to spring count. Simply the more springs, the better the mattress can contour to your body. 1900 springs is considered good.

Cleaner, greener memory foam for maximum pressure relief

In an effort to be ever-more environmentally conscious, Bensons for Beds has adapted the packaging of many of their products, mainly in the mattress line-up. What this means is that the packaging for the mattress is all renewable, made from thick polythene sheeting that makes up the packaging, delivering a good experience for both the customer, and the environment.

Enhanced sleep surface made from recycled plastic bottles

Nesting on top of an enhanced sleep surface made from recycled bottles, you’ll drift off to sleep with the serenity that comes only from knowing that like minded people like yourself are caring for our planet.

Easy care, non-turn mattress

Non-turn mattresses do not need to be flipped as the support layer, that's the layer that is soft and spongey, is only on one side. Being on one side is more convenient for the end-user while also allowing further cost savings to be passed onto the consumer. It is a very common way of maximising the quality of a product while keeping costs down.

8-years full guarantee

The average life expectancy of a mattress is pegged at around 6-7 years, and so, for this retailer and manufacturer to offer an 8 year guarantee shows just how much they believe in the quality of this mattress.

This particular mattress is part of the Rollo range which currently includes both Hybrid and Essentials products as part of what is fast becoming a growing range of products under the Rollo umbrella.

Firmness rating: Medium

A medium tension mattress is largely suitable for most people of average BMI. Not too soft, nor too firm this mattress has enough softness in the tension to allow you to sink, while providing enough support to contour to your body.

Exclusive 100 night trail available

Sleep trials are starting to become more common in the UK mattress market First championed by bed in a box retailers back in 2015 like Eve and Casper they rose to success as they allowed consumers to have more confidence in what they were buying online as the trial gave people a way to try without having to commit. Where previously people went to stores, today they buy online and get hassle free returns if they do not like it. 100 nights is plenty of time to determine whether or not you like the product and if you don't, returning can be arranged for you.

Hybrid mattress

A hybrid mattress is one which benefits from both springs and foam in its base layer giving you the flexibility of foam with the body contouring of springs. The result is a comfortable and supportive lower tension that is both durable and great for full body relief.

Mattress Height: 28cm

A mattress height of around 28cm is ideal for many as it is deep enough to ensure a good quality comfort and support layer while being thin enough to support typical sheets without the need for separate deep bedding.

Customer Reviews For The Slumberland Rollo Hybrid Duo Mattress

Based on 48 reviews

Very comfortable, good quality, just what we needed to replace our conventional pocket sprung mattress. We liked that on delivery it was vacuum packed which made it easy to move upstairs. Once opened it took a couple of hours to get to its proper shape, and there was a little bit of a chemical smell for a few days, but not overwhelming. This is the 3rd mattress we have bought in 10 years and we have had comfort issues with all of them except this one. We are really pleased with the comfort, quality and the value for money. We would not hesitate to make a recommendation of this product. We love it.

5

We originally bought a mattress from Emma for close to £1000 only to receive used pillows with hairs and stains on (straight out the box). Didn't want to lay on the mattress after that. Still waiting for a refund more then a month on. Benson's do Beds was Excellent. Did exactly what it says on the tin and provided a super comfortable mattress. The only point I would make is signs in the showroom say "take away same day" but that's not actually the case with most of the beds on show.

5

I was way overdue replacing my mattress. After a lot of shopping around I decided upon this one. The foam top is extremely comfortable. After having this mattress for a couple of months I wish I could of afforded a full foam mattress. This one is extremely good value for money. Nice easy experience in store without feeling pressured. Delivered in 1 week.

3

The mattress is extremely comfortable but is smaller than expected. There is a two inch gap -5cm, down one side. Even if we pull it to the centre there is a one inch gap each side 2-3cms. Is it meant to be like this? We left it to see if it would self inflate any more but it has not.

5

I have had this mattress a couple of weeks now and find it very comfortable, I bought it in soft comfort level, as I have shoulder problems, but still find it quite firm but comfortable, maybe it will soften a bit more in time. It is very well made and I think worth the money.

5

Really pleased with comfort, found it a bit odd that when mattress protector was delivered driver had to take photo of husband holding it, yet when the actual £700 Mattress was delivered it was just dumped on doorstep and left. Luckily it wasn't stolen.

5
