What Makes It Great

I have so far spent 6 nights on this mattress and its getting more comfortable each time. As soon as you lie down the mattress starts to form to your contours relieving the weight and equalling the pressure of your body. Within minutes you are perfectly supported and feel semi weightless. It does take a bit of getting used to compared to a sprung bed and I have had the best night's sleeps over the last week and wake up feeling refreshed. Though be warned, you will change position to get out of bed in the morning, and then just lie there as the mattress starts to form under you again, making you relaxed and comfortable. I would suggest to set your alarm 10 minutes earlier than you usually do to take advantage of this !

If you find yourself suffering from back pain then you may want to look at an orthopaedic (fancy word for firm) mattress like this one here. Firmer surfaces put less stress on muscles while sleeping which might be exactly what you need to help your back

Stay cool regardless of how hot it is with the special cooling properties within this quilted cover.

Hard wearing but not at a risk of losing the support that your body needs. Bare in mind that a mattress typically only get's replaced after 8 years, so durability is important for that sort of lifespan

Normally you only see a 1 year guarantee as standard. You know that a product is of the highest quality when you have this sort of protection against any sort of failure and dipping that may occur outside of normal settlement

Average mattress depth, suitable for most mattress covers.

The benefit of being removable is that you are not stuck with unsightly stains that you cannot get out of your mattress. Cat being sick on the mattress? No dramas, throw it in the washing.

Comfortable but hot

Went into store to find a mattress that would support back and help with temperature as they were a big issue for me. I explained that i already had a memory foam mattress that makes me feel really hot. I was recommended this one and really liked the idea of the cool touch. The mattress in store was cool to the touch. I received this mattress yesterday. It does not feel cool when you touch it and as soon as i laid down i was instantly hot. I had to keep moving around during the night just so one part of my body wasn’t constantly hot from the mattress. Aside from this it is comfortable but i am a little disappointed as i have spent so much money on this :(

A different nights sleep

Had this mattress for a month and it is so good, really comfortable, bought with 2 tempur pillows as well and has really made a difference. Pillows are really good too. It took a few weeks of looking in show rooms but finally decided on tempur and it was a good choice. My wife has found it slightly warmer than our old mattress but we have changed our duvet for a lighter one and its fine. I'd consider this a small negative but outweighed by the comfort given. Pretty pricey mind but you spend a lot of time on it. We were tempted by the Emma Mattress but went through Dreams as it would be easier to return if there was a problem, 100 day swap is reassuring.

Costly mistake

I brought this in January 2019, I was at the time heavily pregnant and had lots of lower back pain which I associated with pregnancy and could only sleep on my sofa as it was firm. The mattress is difficult to get up from and move /turn compared to sofa. Post delivery of the baby I was excited to use the mattress after sleeping on the sofa for 3months. A) you sink and can't move around and get up as easily takes effort B) cooltouch is actually really warm C) I have lower back pain with the mattress yet if I sleep on another mattress I don't have this pain in the morning. Main complaint is you sink and your back absolutely hurts.

Haven't slept since

We've had this a few weeks now and I literally haven't slept through since - which is unheard of for me. The first issue is fitted sheets. The memory foam seems to pull them out all the time and even when in they're not tight, so it's uncomfortable to lie on. Second the mattress seems to curve downwards at the side so you feel like you're always falling off. I end up sleeping towards the middle near my partner which I hate because I need my space! Lastly, I must toss and turn a lot at night because I find myself waking myself up because it's so much more effort with memory foam. All in all, a bit of a nightmare.

Do Not Machine Wash Mattress Top

I purchased a Tempur Cool Touch mattress in September 2018. I put the top, Cool Touch part in the washing machine as per the manufactures instructions. When I removed it from the washing machine it had two holes in it, caused by the zip. On contacting Tempur about this I was told it was not a manufacturing fault therefore the best they could do was to sell me a new Cool Touch top at half price. This is the manufactures fault because they said it could be machine washed when clearly it cannot, but they will not replace free of charge. ++++BEWARE DO NOT TRUST Tempurs washing instructions, DO NOT WASH IN MACHINE.

For the best nights sleep ....

My Husband and I desperately needed a new mattress after sleeping 10 years on our old one, we visited our local dreams store and on advice from the sales tried 5 mattresses - we decided on the Tempur as it seemed far more superior to the others. We are so pleased we did, it is so comfortable! neither of us have had such a good nights sleep in years. It neither makes you hot or cold - it is just perfect. You actually feel like a new person when you wake up in the morning. It is deeper than our old mattress but our fitted sheets still fit it. Would highly recommend people to try this mattress - it is wonderful.

Best mattress for arthritis

This mattress allows ‘countours’ of your body to ‘sink in’ giving it great support. I’m a side sleeper, so this feature is very helpful, allowing me a pain free nights, as I started suffering from arthritis in my shoulders and knees and my previous very expensive mattress was not doing it’s job for me. No more tossing in the bed! Although bought it on sale, this was still an expensive purchase, but for me it was the right and only choice (even within other Tempur mattresses)

good night sleep

we have had this mattress for a month in the beginning we were worried spending this amount on a mattress but i have a bad back and my partner has fibromyalgia so we thought to hang with the cost and go for it and i can tell you now we don't regret one penny of it every part off the body is supported and a great night sleep 10 out of ten.

Most comfortable mattress I have ever had

I bought this mattress last month after going trying out a number of them! I have been living with disc bulge in two places in my spine for the last 10 years. After having tried so many mattresses, I can vouch for this one - the best ever I have had so far. I am no more in pain when I wake up in the morning. Thank you Tempur :-)

So comfy

My partner and I have been really unlucky with our mattress choices- we've been through 3 in less than 2 years. We tried the Tempur in Dreams and decided it was the one, but put it off for about 6 months because of the price. We've had it nearly a month now and I love it, it's super comfy but also gives us the support we need.

Changed my life

I have had my mattress a week and omg I feel like a new person.. 100% forget the price it worth every penny, even the bags under my eyes which I put down to age has gone.. so free face lift.. feel happier through the day, as have no aches and pains:) if you can afford to buy a tempura don't hesitate x

Better than expected

You feel refreshed after a good night sleep and I don't wake up with back pain anymore infact my back feels amazing. I actually bought 2 one for me and my partner and one for my parents. And they are loving it, my dad is sleeping more and my mother falls asleep a lot more faster than before.

Perfect keeps you cool

Takes a bit of getting used to as it quickly molds to your body shape but once your in you sleep like all night. I’m a terrible sleeper usually toss and turn all night not with this mattress. I wake up refreshed only down side is trying to get up on my days off it to comfy!!!

Very Happy

I bought this a month ago after trying other leading memory foam mattress. The difference is amazing. Had Tempur before and so glad I changed back again. My backache has ended and neck pain too. Certainly the mattress is not cheap but worth the extra money.

Resolved my back pain in 5 days

Best Buy ever. It may be expensive, but it cured my back pain in less than a week and the cool touch within have helped no end during this heat wave. Would highly recommend the mattress testing machine in store, to help you make the right decision too.

This mattress has changed my life!

I bought this mattress almost a month ago and I have never slept better. I can sleep in any position and still wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed. It is firm, but also comforting and literally becomes a part of you, whilst you sleep.

Very Comfortable

Tried a bed in a box but not very good and returned. This is far superior. Takes a bit of getting used to because lying on memory foam feels different to conventional mattress so try first. Not cheap but good night's sleep.

Takes a while to get used to

But comfortable when you do. The CoolTouch feature is completely lost on me and my wife. Neither of us have noticed any difference in the coolness of the mattress when compared to our previous one.


I cannot find any fault with Dreams from first placing my order to it being delivered. I found them to be extremely professional. I can thoroughly recommend them and will use them in the future.

Tempur mattress

My wife thinks the mattress is brilliant but I think that it is awful. I don't like the way that I sink into it. I much prefer a firm base. If it was up to me, I'd return it as unsuitable.

Sleeping better than I thought I could!

Currently a few weeks into having our new mattress, the missus loves it! I'm finding it slowly growing on me, helping me sleep for longer instead of my normal 4 hours I'm getting atleast 6

So comfortable

This bed and mattress arrived 2 weeks ago and it’s amazing. Very comfortable and supportive especially for my husbands bad back. Have already recommended it to my parents

Top comfort

I bought this mattress at the beginning of the year on advice given by a family member. Good advice and good decision. Improved sleep from first night.

So Comfy !

We have had the Tempur mattress for a month now and can honestly say it’s worth every penny. Took a couple of weeks to get used to it but love it now .

comfortable, just the right firmness

I got this a month ago. i like it . Previously I used to get up with aches in the back and neck. I don't have these anymore. Hope it stays that way.

Good nights!

I bought this a month ago and it gave us sweet dreams every nights! Very comfy and supportive to the back! Just fall asleep in 1s...unbelievable~~~

Fantastic bed

This bed is awesome, so comfortable you fall asleep within minutes! the only issue I have is you sleep late for everything.
