Suitability

*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.

Performance

  • 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.

Odour

  • 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.

The most comfiest mattress I've ever slept on! Worth every penny and more to have a restful nights sleep every night! Myself and my partner had gone to a competitors store during our hunt for a new mattress and had a sleep analyse done. We had both had different types of mattress so it wasn't an easy choice to make as we liked different things Tempur wasn't one we had previously considered as I was pretty loyal to my previous mattress provider and partner hated memory foam! Fast forward 6 months later and we had picked the tempur original elite after a blind mattress test. It arrived on time and was delivered to our room of choice, couldn't fault the team at Bensons re delivery, price, ease of purchase and general quality of order and delivery updates etc. We both haven't had a bad nights sleep since! Thanks!

Second time we have had this mattress. It really is fantastic. First time we had for over 15 years. It actually helped fix a problem with my lower back. This time around same again, we have had it 4 weeks. . Both wife and I really like it, that snug feeling as you sink in and it supports all contours. Sometimes we race to be first in bed! The satisfaction of sighing first I sleep on my side mostly but back and front and it is all good. Wake feeling great. These mattresses are more of the premium end but we highly recommend. The Bensons delivery guys were excellent fast, friendly and efficient, giving us a heads up before arriving, delivering, then disposing of another mattress. Bensons kept us informed all the way through the delivery process allowing us to change the date if necessary.

We recently bought a gorgeous new bed from Bensons for Beds from their Gateshead store and invested in a Tempur mattress. Sadly the mattress we originally chose, (the firm) was too hard for me. We took advantage of the 40 night comfort guarantee and swapped our mattress for a medium one, and it's perfect. Both Paul (Assistant Manager) and Peter were extremely helpful and got us sorted with a very swift delivery. Their delivery system is absolutely bob-on! Time slot, texts and a phone call to confirm. I'd highly recommend Bensons for Beds for their excellent customer service and delivery system. Thanks Paul!

I like the Tempur original elite mattress and would give it a 5 but my wife does not and would give it a 2. When buying the mattress be aware that when first laying on it or turning over the mattress takes around 10 seconds to mould fully to your shape. This is fine when you are awake but when you are changing position in your sleep the mattress tries to roll you back into your original position before re-moulding to the new position. I can sleep through this but it wakes my wife every time she moves. We have had the mattress for 2 months so cant comment on its durability.

Mattress is perfect! However delivery was not good at all, two delivery men made a decision that the bed would not fit, but we told them we had exactly the same bed for our other bedroom two months prior and it did fit they had to check this out and looked. Then they decided they would take the bed off the van and put it in our bedroom but they did not fit it or put it together like the previous guys did two months ago so a poor service. After they left we unpacked the bed and the material on the bed is damaged I have photos to prove this.

Sales, delivery and after-sales customer service have been excellent but there was a serious problem with the base. The two parts of the base didn't meet up in line and the base material was scuffed. The two delivery men noticed these faults and photos were taken. A replacement base was quickly agreed but there would be a delay of two weeks. This was unacceptable because of our previous commitments, so it cannot as yet be delivered. It has all been very frustrating. To ask for a comment on our purchase is rather premature.

I absolutely love my new mattress, wish I'd bought one years ago. I love that I got 2 free pillows which are also amazing. I struggle to get out of bed now as I am too comfortable to move and can't wait to go back to bed at night, my wee Yorkie loves it too and can be heard snoring his wee head off at times haha. I would deffo recommend the investment as I suffer from Rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and some spinal issues but my pain has lessened in the mornings and that's only after 2 weeks of use, fabulous

After purchasing our Tempur matress over 2 years ago, we treated our son and daughter in law to one when they moved house. As usual the move took longer than first thought so the delivery date had to be changed a few times. Bensons couldn't be more helpful. The delivery was on time, with a time for arrival phone call before hand. It was delivered with respect and care for our property and the old mattress taken away. The whole process was very professional. We will certainly be using them again.

AMAZING! We had purchased a Simba mattress but it caused more pain than I had in the first place so we returned it. The Tempur mattress is on another level, it was more expensive but so worth the extra money. My back pain has gone and neck and shoulder pain have improved dramatically and I we've only had the mattress a couple of weeks. Would recommend this product without a doubt, the quality and comfort is outstanding. I can't wait to go to bed every night as you just sink in.

I've had the mattress and pillows for 2 weeks now and, so far, I'm really happy with both. The pillows themselves were worth buying because I've struggled for so long to buy something comfortable - these are very heavy and supportive but you can sink into them and really relax. The mattress takes a little getting used to. I have a bit of a fight to get off it at times because it seems to mould around you but it's very comfortable whether I'm sleeping on my back or side.

This has to be the best mattress I've ever slept on. It moulds to your body and oh it's so comfy I get the best night sleeps ever. The two guys in Hull who sold me this mattress were so helpful and informative and told me I would love this mattress. Me and my husband got used to it straight away I would definitely recommend the Tempur mattress to anyone looking for the best nights sleep! Thank you Benson beds in Hull.

It took a couple of weeks to get used to the different support. Moving about during the night was a bit awkward at first but has improved lately. It's heavy, not sure how someone with limited mobility would be able to put on a fitted sheet - I find it quite awkward. I don't think I'll be able to rotate it without help, which is frustrating. Sleep quality is good now but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to someone else.

Good buying experience. Tested all sorts of mattresses. Chose this. Very different, but have to say it's very comfortable once you get used to it. Waking up with no aches and pains, unlike old mattress. Strange "new" odour had gone after a couple of days, wasn't unpleasant anyway. Feeling good so far Staff at Bensons (Rotherham) very nice, delivery well organised and pleasant couriers.

I am so pleased that I decided to reinvest in a tempur mattress again. I always found our old one very comfortable and then after ten years we knew we should replace it. An alternative type of mattress did not give me the same level of comfort. With a kyphosis scoliosis of the spine a good night's sleep is exceedingly welcome. I would certainly recommend it.

This is like sleeping on a cloud. My partner has a complex back problem which makes getting the right mattress really important. We have both had the best nights' sleep since the mattress arrived. It moulds to the shape of your body giving full support all night. Once you get used to the slight sinking feeling from the memory foam, you will not be disappointed!

I'll be absolutely honest, at first we HATED this mattress! The first couple of weeks sleep was dreadful, but we had been warned that it might take some time to get used to. 3 weeks on and we are now in mattress heaven. All our pains and aches have drifted away. I can't feel my husband move at all during the night. Well worth the money!

The first time in years I have looked forward to going to bed, rather than dreading it. This is the most comfortable mattress and although quite expensive, you cannot put a price on comfort and a good nights sleep. I wake up and my back feels so much better after years of uncomfortable sleep. I cannot recommend Tempur enough.

We visited Bensons out of curiosity and we were shown an amazing divan bed with a Tempur mattress and pilllows. It was on offer with a huge 70% off. The member of staff was very helpful and within a few days it was set up at home. What a comfortable mattress it is! We are both sleeping much better and so pleased we bought it.

The best mattress I have ever had. The support is amazing and you feel soo light. I like how its soo thick and the feeling on your back especially as you lie down. Highly recommend. I don't think I could change to a different one now. They are pricey but for something you use every day for 8 to 10 hours it's money well spent.

Best investment into a good nights sleep. We were toying between a slightly cheaper mattress or just going for it and getting a Tempur. And we are so glad we made the investment! It's literally the best mattress we've both ever slept on. And the free pillows were the cherry on the top! Don't hesitate- it's worth every penny.

This mattress is very expensive but it is unbelievably comfortable. My criticism is that the expensive Tempur branded mattress cover feels horrible like a toddlers toilet training sheet. It was suggested to me and I bought it but I would not recommend it. A normal mattress cover works perfectly well.

Beautiful mattress, I chose the medium firmness, the store assistant, Natalie, told me to give it a couple of weeks to settle in, and I'm glad she did as it felt more like the firm one, but now, two weeks in, I'm more than happy with it. It's lovely and comfy, well worth it.

It's not bad at all. Give it a, day or so as it is different to traditional mattresses. Always use a mattress protector.
