Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

When a mattress has the words very firm in the title of the product, you get a feeling for the direction that the product is perhaps going in relative to it's tension and firmness.

The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch Elite Mattress is the latest in a line of new products from Tempur and is, in this case, very firm. Suitable for those that sleep on their back, hack neck or back pain or of higher BMI, this mattress will appeal to many.

To start, the brand. Tempur have been renowned in the mattress industry for decades now, superseding many rivals in both quality and price, proving they are one of the big boys in the industry. 

This mattress has particular staying power due to it's cool-touch technology. This mattress comes with the CoolTouch™ cover which provides a cool touch sensation in all seasons meaning you can remain cool while you sleep.

Finally,  you have a 10 year guarantee which is incredible for an industry plagued by 1 year guarantee as standard. Bare in mind that the average mattress lifespan is pegged at around 7 years so what Tempur are saying is that this mattress will last longer than the average while also providing a guarantee to back up those claims. This shows how much trust that Tempur and the retailer both have in the product and why you should buy with confidence.

The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch Elite Mattress is well reviewed and has amassed an impressive 200 reviews which for a new mattress shows people are eager to invest in the product. Feedback is strong, with 93% who own it recommending this mattress. Positive feedback is predictably around the impressive back support, being a very firm mattress it will appeal to many with neck and back issues and it looks to be working. Others were also impressed with the quality to price ratio and that while the price may be premium, so too are the materials and components. 

Negative feedback is rare but we have found a few examples. These seem to be limited to people that found the mattress to be too firm. We don't really see the issue in this instance as it's categorised already as very firm. Ultimately this sort of mattress will only appeal to those who need specific orthopaedic support for greater back and neck support.

How does it feel?

Firmness of The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch™ Elite Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.

Reasons to Buy

Specialist mattress that comes at the top end of the firmness scale. The tension won't give over time and will give you an ultra firm feel to keep your back rigid while you sleep.

The heat of memory foam is mitigated by the CoolTouch technology giving you a great all-season mattress without the excess sweat buildup.

A premium price point but with a reassuring 10 year guarantee giving full typical lifespan coverage.

Reasons to Avoid

Likely unsuitable for the majority of people, this mattress has strong orthopedic enhancements that won't suit many. Avoid for most side sleepers also.

Some complaints that the CoolTouch does not go far enough with reports that some sensitive to heat still get too warm.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark
Of The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch™ Elite Mattress
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.


  • 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.

  • 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.

Exclusive CoolTouch™ mattress cover to keep you cool at night

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

25cm - Depth

Average mattress depth, suitable for most mattress covers.

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

Comfort Grade - Very Firm

Very firm mattresses are ideal for those suffering with back pain. The amount of pain relief that a quality very firm mattress can provide is often the primary reason for people to purchase this specific type of mattress. For those looking for comfort over pain relief, there would be an arguement to perhaps look at something close to medium firmness

Removable and washable cover at 60°C

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.

Customer Reviews For The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch™ Elite Mattress

Based on 510 reviews
Rolls Royce of mattresses, excellent product.

After a lot of deliberation and sleepless nights, my wife and I decided to take the plunge on Tempur. We were initially put off by the high price, but I would say it is certainly worth the investment for a good night's sleep. I could not speak higher of this mattress. . We tried a number of mattresses within the Tempur range and found this to be instantly the best for both comfort and support. (That's not to say the others were no good). Now for the lowdown on the product: The mattress is certainly good at keeping us cool. (Incidently the cooling cover is unique to Dreams, so another reason to purchase from Dreams). Writing this review in the 30 degrees heat, we both have had no problems in sleeping in the recent hot weather. The mattress at first felt at first rather soft (which is not to either of our liking) but the support is second to none. The Dreams bed test actually confirmed that we both preferred medium rather than firm. Whicih was certainly an eye opener and made our decision on such a premium product. Definitely recommend Tempur, certainly this model for ourselves and most definitely from Dreams. Excellent choice, by far one of the best purchases I have made! Mr & Mrs V, Solihull

Mixed feelings about this mattress

I am a heavy big side sleeper and this mattress gives my body an excellent support and comfort during my sleep, it really feels like sinking in the clouds, it will move under your body until it gets a perfect relaxing shape and taking all the pressure away from your body's pressure points.My lower back, hips and shoulders pain is gone since I am sleeping on it and for it's comfort and support it really deserves 5 starts, but unfortunately like every memory foam mattress temperature is it's biggest issue, although it is a cool touch it still gets extremely hot around midnight, I tried to sleep with keeping windows open and to use a tinner cover but no improvement what so ever, I get up every morning with wet and sweaty clothes and body. So if you get hot fast, if you are on the heavier side , if you are getting hot flashes this won't be a good choice of mattress and I don't recommend it at all, otherwise it is the best sleep experience of your life.

Tempur Very Firm CoolTouch Elite Mattress

I bought from Bournemouth Store , James the manager his staff Sarah, Laura and Kieran were all excellent and very helpful and it was a pleasure visiting the store. I used the sleep match which among other makes recommended The Tempur Firm Elite, but to be honest the Jury is still out with regards to The Tempur Firm CoolTouch Elite Mattress. I am finding it too hard and getting slight back pain. I think I will ask for it to be exchanged for the Hybrid Elite, thanks to the 30 day sleep comfort Guarantee, I believe that a New Hybrid is coming but can find no details about it yet, perhaps the new Hybrid will only be available at Dreams like the Tempur firm elite as Tempur-Sealy now own them. This mattress is of good quality although expensive, It is annoying not having any straps on the side to assist in rotating it as advised, as the mattress is very heavy being the 6ft Superking.

Best night's sleep I've had in years..

My previous Dreams mattress had started to give in after 8 years - there is definitely truth in what they say about 8 years for their mattresses. I ordered a new one but there was a delay as difficulty in getting springs - my brother recommended the TEMPUR as they have one - so I changed the order and got this. A very good move and decision - what a difference in my sleep pattern - I use a Sleep App to track my sleep and it's ticking all the boxes and showing I am having the best night's sleep in years. The mattress almost hugs you and it feels like you are sleeping on a firm cloud. Not more aches and pains (used to suffer from stiff back and joints) and I wake up feeling much more energised. I've even ditched my electric blanket as they say sleeping in a cooler bed is much healthier for you. Recommend you also get the pillows as it all adds to the TEMPUR experience.

Cool and gentle to sleep on.

I bought one of these mattress to see if I would have pain areas on my body. Where ever my body touched became tender due to the fact I suffered from Fibromyalgia. This mattress moulds to your own body and not where your body just touches as with other mattresses. It's nice to have a comfortable sleep and wake up without tender areas on your body. I still only get 4 hours sleep and that's down to the pattern of sleep I have been getting for years. My hours of sleep seem to be getting longer and more of a deep sleep because of this mattress. The other mattress I had used to make you too hot and this one keeps you cool Thanks best nights sleep for years . Also the way it's going I might be able to come off the sleeping pills due to the comfort of this mattress. Michael Handley.

Firm but fair

I have or rather had a back. I would sleep on the floor but the dog has this area covered. The Tempur is expensive. I worked it out that if it last 15 years then I would save money by not replacing it in 8 years as normal. Then I thought of a price of it per night. Which 350 sleeps a year for 15 years isn't all that much. Now I factor in the time and expenses of Chiropractor. I'm now in profit. Does it work. For me, I've never slept better. I need a bed that when I get in, I don't feel lile I'm in a cloud. I want firm bed with comfort. Soft on my rear to sit up and read but a solid core to get proper rest. Straight away it felt like I was supported. It is hard to stay awake in it. I am tight when it comes to spending money on myself but actually this is an investment.

Great product.

We bought this product a little over a month ago. As it was time for a new mattress as our old one was causing my partner stiffness and back pain every day when he woke up. Our new Tempur mattress is fantastic. No more back pain for him he sleeps better and for longer and actually feels refreshed. We dont feel each other movements during the night. its cooler than i expected and provides a relaxing nights sleep.It supports every inch of you, as I have ongoing lower back problems i have found this to be the most supportive comfortable mattress Ive ever owned. It even comes in its own washable zip cover so you can wash it and keep your mattress good as new. We are very happy with it. We would gladly recommend it. Try a Tempur mattress they are as good as they say.

Squishy cloud of cosy dreams

Your should heed my warning before purchasing this mattress. Are you prepared to struggle executing your normal activities of daily living from now on? If not, look away and do not read further. I am now beholden to my slumberland enchantress. Her marshmallow, cloud envelops me like a freshly baked cinnamon roll. All this softness, there must be something amiss I hear you say. Alas - my weary bones are not cast aside. They too are catered to by the slumber siren; she finds a way to support me where needed whilst simultaneously encouraging me sink further into dreamland. Its too late for me, Im in too deep. But you, theres still time for you. So heed my warning and save yourselves! For once you lay on this mattress, nothing will ever be the same again.

Just pure quality and comfort!

Been sleeping in our Tempur Sensation Eite mattress for a couple of weeks now, and its just brilliant! Its the firmest of the range and so took a few nights to get used to from having a softer mattress before, and has started to feel a little softer providing even more comfort. The Tempur pillows we bought at the same time are fantastic too! Its really helped with neck and back problems caused by a poor quality Mammoth mattress we bought only two years ago. Really hoping this one lasts a lot longer, but from all the people I know whove had Tempur mattresses for a number of years now all say how great they are and that theyre built to last, so I have every confidence that it will!

King tempur cool touch

We bought a firm cool touch tempura king mattress.. at first it felt as hard as wood and slowly you sink in and the mattress finds the contours of your body over the first week we have got used to it and have definitely noticed the difference. We both suffer from bad backs and in the morning it usually is a struggle to straighten and they ache.. but now we dont have this.. it takes a while to get used to not having any bounce to help you turn over and when you get in you need to do it fast and not sit in the edge as otherwise you get a different sag shape that then have to find your lying down position and give the support required. Overall enjoying it so far.

Love our new mattress

This mattress is extra firm but thats what we wanted! Its extremely comfy for us, no back or hip pain on a morning, best thing we have bought. Converted from an old memory foam mattress we had for years, I find the new Renoir mattresses are a lot cooler and as for the smell some people complain about when the mattresses are first opened just leave the window open for a couple of hours after opening and it is fine, but the smell isnt that strong, certainly isnt as bad an a new memory foam I would recommend going and trying the different types of Tempur matress out in store to see which one suits you best as theses mattresses arent a one size fits all.


Since changing our bed to Tempur cool touch Elite Mattress has made a massive sleep change in our life ! I don't move around so much to get comfortable with problems with my hip. With regards to my husband he has a prolapsed disc and sciatica on his left side, which in the past he constantly moves about to get comfortable and was not getting much sleep. Since getting used to our Tempur new bed, which was expensive has, made a big difference to both of us! Initially when you first lie down the bed seems hard but then you feel your body sinking into a comfortable position. Just like the pillows ! My husband is now sleeping longer without moving in pain.

Great mattress but takes some getting used to!

My wife and I visited Dreams to get a new bed as our current mattress was causing back pain. After using the automated service we were recommended a tempur mattress. After having used it for some weeks now, the mattress is very comfortable as it molds to your sleeping position and the cooltouch technology stops you getting too hot. The memory foam pillows are great too. It's a weird feeling sinking into the mattress but you get used to it! The only tiny downside is that we haven't been able to find a fitted sheet that fits perfectly due to the depth and changing shape of the mattress but that is very minor. Overall very happy.

Long overdue great nights sleep!-)

Put a lot of thought into purchasing a new mattress and after some legwork, researching online, checking reviews and visiting a number of outlets - found Dreams to be on top of their game!?! Very friendly service and professional advice provided by sales assistant. Tried a number of mattresses instore and after using their inhouse Sleepmatch technology, found the Tempur Sensation Elite to be the perfect match for both my wife and I. Have slept like a baby for the last 3 weeks and have definitely noticed the difference including no more aches / pains in the morning!?!-) Thank you for the excellent service and prompt delivery!-)

Tempur very firm cool touch elite mattress

We have just replaced our Tempur Original Deluxe with the Very Firm Cool Touch Elite Tempur mattress and boy what an upgrade. This feels so supportive, it isnt too firm so I would class this as a firm mattress. Its so much more supportive than the old one and yet has the gentle touch of a Tempur mattress. We tried 3 different Tempurs in the shop this being the firmest and am so glad we purchased this one. Great nights sleep, I cannot feel husband move during the night at all which is one of the things I love about this mattress. My shoulders and back feel so much better.

Just..... Wow.....

It was only after buying this mattress that I realised how incredibly poor my previous mattresses were. The first time I slept on this mattress, I did encounter some slight back pain for 2 days, but I assume this was because my back hadn't actually been able to relax in 10 years and made the most of the comfort. Every night since then has been so beneficial for my back, and I am sleeping well, very well in fact! It is well worth the price and should be seen as an investment in your wellbeing. It might even save you the odd trip to the chiropractor!

Soooo comfy!

Had this for about a month now and loving it. Im a little overweight and had been getting hip and knee problems which have now gone, the bed is the only change Ive made. You slowly sink into this bed so when you want to change position you may find yourself slipping back into the previous imprint you made. It does slowly return to shape so bear with it as you will work out how to manage this. We had an Emma mattress before this which was ok but lost any resistance it had and became very soft, this tempur mattress is miles better.

Love It

I have suffered for years with back pain waking me up a few times each night. I thought long and hard about paying for a decent mattress and I am glad I bought this. I feel more rested in the morning and my back is not as painful. I can't describe how comfy this mattress makes you. I had tried other memory foam mattresses but couldn't get used to them. With this one you just seem to merge with the mattress. I have only had this a few weeks and have no complaints I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a decent sleep.

Tempur Mattress

The mattress took me a couple of weeks to find it comfortable. Now it is very comfortable and provides excellent support. The biggest problem for two weeks was, what I know understand to be, "Off-Gassing". The chemical smell given off by the manufacturing process lasted two weeks and made my eyes smart for at least one week. I was not told, nor would it have been practical, to store the mattress in a garage for several days before use as I had booked the collection of the old mattress to be collected at time of delivery of new.

Best night sleep in YEARS!

We had to change our old mattress which was it was bought at another well known company, it was completely the wrong mattress for us, even though said other company said it was right for us, obviously looking for a quick sale! We opted this time to use Dreams Sleepmatch service to get matched up to the correct mattress, the service we received was absolutely fantastic, the salesman - Gareth, was really lovely at the Cribbs Causeway Branch - our new mattress is wonderful to sleep on, and would recommend it to anyone!

Best mattress ever

My wife proposed we replace our spring mattress with a memory foam mattress. At first, I was reluctant as I thought: "a mattress is a mattress, who cares". After we went to Dreams to compare mattresses, I was immediately sold! I can't describe how much better the memory foam mattress is! I can twist and turn and my wife won't wake up. And I really feel like I'm being supported better. Even though the mattress is a bit on the expensive side, I think it's totally worth it as I'm getting a much better quality of sleep.

Best night sleep ever!

I bought this mattress for our new home. Having had my previous mattress for many years, I was hesitant to splurge on a more expensive mattress as I thought that they are probably all just as comfortable as another, but that has not been the case. This mattress is exceptionally comfortable and both myself & my partner have agreed that this, alongside the Tempur pillows, has provided us both with the comfiest nights sleep! Will definitely be recommending this to all friends & family looking for a better nights sleep!

Fantastic product,we havent sleep in better one

The mattress-oh what I have to say!Fantastic isnt enough to explain it-we had issues with couple mattresses befor it!I have sciatica and this mattress really helps me about it-less pain at all and sometimes after the busy day I lie down on it with painful back-couple minute later the pain is gone!I dont know exactly the magic of the mattress-maybe because its memory foam turns into you body shape I cant really explain myself!but the thing is the pain is gone-yes is expensive but worth it every penny!

Tempur cool touch elite mattress

Takes a while to get used to it as very, very firm, but as I sleep on my front I wanted a firm mattress. Havent had any back ache since Ive had it and absolutely love it now I have got used to it. I havent found the cool touch that cool but pleased I purchased this mattress. The staff were very good on delivery too.the only downside was it went on sale with two free pillows after I had just had it delivered and also when you spend 2200 on a mattress,they should waiver 50 to take old one away

At least One of us is Pleased??????

Excellent.!!! I have a problem with soft mattress's, they give me a Pain in my Back.. so went looking for a Firm MattressWhen I tried this Firm one in the Shop, I just knew it was the Right Mattress I could feel the Support in my spine instantly so my Wife and I decided to get two Single Mattresses in a large Divan/Base turns out this combination is called a Super King SizeResultmy wife had a Medium Mattress she was hoping for a Softer mattresswhich they dont doso at Least Im Happy.

The joy of getting quality sleep again!

Every penny spent on buying this mattress was carefully considered. Whilst waiting for the delivery our nerve waivered a bit about the outlay. We're one month in now and the impact has been significant. I'm sleeping through the night, without waking or struggling with nasal congestion. We can't feel each other fidgeting and rolling over. It has been worth every penny ten times over. I just wish we bought it 5 years earlier with the energy levels I've got back! Superb product. Thank you

Worth the money

We purchased this to replace our previous memory foam mattress. This is our first time going for a Tempur mattress, as the cost has always put us off. Dreams offered a helpful finance package, so we went for it. Great service in store, good delivery service with good communication and helpful drivers carrying the mattress into my bedroom. One thing to be aware is the depth of this is big, so your standard sheets might not fit it- prepare to buy new deep fitting sheets!

You will never regret this purchase

This does need to come with a warning ! Both my husband and myself had problems getting out of bed as it was so comfy ! My husband know tells me he is tidying the bedroom ! ( I know I was scared ) found him tucked up in bed having trouble keeping his eyes open ! We both had pains waking up in our old mattress nothing with this apart from you dont want to get out !! It just showed us how bad our old mattress was. You definitely wont regret buying this mattress

Worth it

After sleeping on it for a month almost there is no signs of dip or deform which I thought may happen due to using an adjustable bed. Takes a while to get used too but when you settle you feel very snug, Im usually turning over constantly in bed but not since getting the Tempur very firm cool touch I normally wake in the same position I fell asleep in. I have good quality sleep now and awake refreshed very happy nearly didnt buy because of price but so glad I did.

Tempur heaven

I have had my Tempur very firm cool elite mattress since the 30/07/2022 and it is an absolutely comfortable sleep. Well supported in all the right areas especially my lower back which I was having some problems with. Don't be put off by the very firm part as it is more supportive than firm, I did try other Tempur mattresses in the Dreams shop, but chose this one. The shop and the assistant were a dream to deal with and the delivery was within 4 days, perfect.

Tempur very firm mattress

We bought this mattress a few weeks ago. Initially, (first few nights) it was hard to get used to, and was contemplating killing the sales person for his excellent sales patter. Eventually, it became a pleasure, looking forward to going to bed. The best way to describe the mattress, is it's like sleeping in partial quick sand, but eventually supports every body part that touches the mattress. Highly recommended if you can adjust from a normal mattress.

This is the best I've slept so good in years!!!

I have only had this a few weeks and have not felt so energised throughout the day. No mid afternoon slumps, no feeling like I could go to bed in the middle of the day. My back and hip do not give me any pain when getting up in the morning. My other half was doubtful it would be this comfortable and now is in full agreement that this give us both a great nights sleep. Not sound cliche but this is so comfortable and supportive I am glad I made this decision.

Don't be too quick to judge

It's a little early to say if this mattress has fulfilled my needs (hence 4 stars) however we have slept well and although quite different from a normal sprung mattress it takes a bit of getting used too. My partner has no problems and has not had a disturbed night since sleeping on this mattress, I on the other hand wake up several times in the night but that's probably me and no fault of the mattress. I would recommend you give this mattress a try.

Tempur Sensation Elite mattress with Divan base.

I bought the Double Tempur sensation Elite Mattress one month ago at New Malden Dreams store. I had little back pain every morning when I woke up from my old spring mattress. However, with Tempure Mattress I dont have that issue anymore. This mattress doesnt sink in like other memory form mattresses so I didnt had any weirdness of sleeping in new mattress. Also, I purchased the mattress cover with it so this mattress got ten years guarantee.

Great support, finally a restful sleep

The TEMPUR CoolTouch Elite mattress we purchased has taken a bit of getting used to due it being so firm. We have had the mattress a couple of weeks and it now my back has got used to the new support - which is incredible. The mattress remains cool which is great and with the tempur pillows as well, we are both getting a restful sleep for the first time in years. We both have bad backs, one of which has scoliosis. This mattress has really helped.

Mattress fine but Dreams have let it down

Pre-sale service excellent. Post sale extremely disappointing. Mattress ok for me but not hubby. 5 sleep deprived nights before we gave up. However we cannot return or swap mattress for 30 days after delivery. Felt like we were dismissed by the very person who sold us the thing. We have no option but to use Dreams for an alternative as there is nothing wrong with mattress but i will not be advising any of my friends to shop there in the future.

Loving our new Tempur mattress

This is our first memory foam style mattress and although it takes a little getting used to we are loving it and sleeping much better than before. We had concerns regarding overheating from the mattress but definitely not felt any signs of that. The Tempur mattress supports you very well and we think that helps with longer deep sleep periods and better breathing (hence less snoring). Five stars for this mattress, highly recommended.

Best Nights Sleep I've Had In Years

I've struggled to sleep for almost 3 years now but due to not living in a fixed location I never considered buying a new mattress. Now that I'm based in one place again I took the plunge and thanks to the sleep matching system in Dreams I was matched with this mattress. The comfort level is incredible and all the pain I used to have in my back and neck from sleeping is gone. Highly recommend this mattress if it suits your needs!

Invest in a better night sleep.

This mattress is an investment that pays off every night. Prior to having this my partmer and I struggled to sleep and had back ache that we put down to getting older. Now we sleep well and have notcied our backs now feel looser and are pain free. It took a night or two to adjust to how firm it was but I think it was just firm from being in a cold warehouse/ van. Its a high price but worth every penny.

This bed though.

Me and my other half have been using the bed for 2 weeks now. I used to wake up with lower back pain, underfoot pain and just generally unrested. My other half was much the same, unrested, general aches and pains. This mattress is unbelievable, my back doesn't hurt, my underfoot doesn't hurt, were both rested and neither wake each other during the night. We cannot recommend this bed enough.

Tried the rest, this is the best

This Tempur mattress is like no other mattress. We've had, memory foam, coil spring and gel top mattresses, but this one is far superior and amazingly comfortable. Particularly the sensation elite, as it both moulds itself to your body whilst providing positive support, no sinking feeling, just full support. Say goodbye to those aches and pains. A unique mattress providing a restful night's sleep.

Like sleeping on clouds

As soon as we went to bed on our new mattress, we knew we had made the right decision. Immediate comfort, on a mattress that doesnt overheat. Didnt feel my husband moving in bed. Most importantly tho, we both slept so well and had no aches and pains in the morning. This is a winner for me as I have chronic back pain and nerve damage. Honestly couldnt recommend this mattress highly enough

Offers exceptional support with less sink

A beautiful mattress and naturally the firmness rating is divisive. I have substantial issues with the lumbar portion of my back and I am waking up with less pain; however it is very firm. I'm currently 2 weeks into my 40 day trial period and the cells are beginning to open up; may have to swap for a sensation or a hybrid The jury is out , but it does exactly what it says on the tin though!

Super comfortable

I brought this mattress just over a month ago due to my old spring mattress becoming out dated. I chose this mattress for many reason, the cool touch which is amazing and makes such a difference. The memory foam, which you slowly sink in the as you lay on the bed, although this mattress is soft it is also super supportive. Over it this is a great product and would definitely recommend!


We have had the Mattress nearly a month, its taken a while for my husband to get used to it but hes getting there . When it states Very Firm , thats exactly what it was , although its breaking in slowly now . I think its a mattress thats well worth being patient with because the CoolTouch is fantastic especially if your a lady of a certain age or a very HOT male !!

Best purchase ever!!!!

Had this mattress a couple of weeks now ..... and cant wait to go to bed! Its firm but soft in all the right places, as a side sleeper it is so comfortable and no longer wake with lower back pain. No movement transfer from my husband who is 3x my weight, no dipping/rolling into middle of the bed ..... certainly worth every penny for undisturbed sleep - best purchase ever!


Good mattress, im still getting used to it. Gave me back pain for a couple of days, but its gone now. Might need the soft one, will see aftet the recommended 100 days. It arrived 2 weeks late, but thanks to Dreams they gave me an air mattress for free to tide me over. Im rating it 3 for now need more time with the mattress to make a more informed decision.

Bed & Mattress

Going to Dreams to purchase a bed & mattress with a budget in mind. I can honestly say, I spent a little more than I wanted to, but its been the best purchase. I sleep so well, the mattress just moulds & hugs you, in a way that makes me not fidget in my sleep. I sleep well, really well. Added bonus the tempur pillows, the whole product is worth the money.

Very firm Tempur mattress

I wanted the firmest as possible Mattrese. The very firm by Tempur is solid firm on the touch but yet your body sinks into a perfect mould within seconds. The trick is not to sink in too much as this would result to back pain. This mattress does it just right. My back pain has stopped since sleeping on the Tempur very firm. Overall, good investment.

A perfect mattress after years of springs!

We've always used spring mattresses but have suffered from frequent back pains after sleeping so decided to make the change to a Tempur, and it's been the best decision! Not only is the mattress amazingly comfortable and motion transfer is minimal, our back pain has gone. Would highly recommend a Tempur is you're having trouble with a spring mattress.

So comfortable

My husband and I bought this mattress as we had both been waking up with bad backs. We are both in our early 30s and were getting really down at how old we were beginning to feel. We bought this mattress and although it was a little hard the first night, by the end of the first week our bad backs were sorted and we both have good nights sleep too.

TEMPUR CoolTouch Elite Mattress

I chose the very firm mattress and it is very firm. Moulds to your body contours and the cool touch cover is very handy. Generally, the mattress seems warmer than normal spring mattresses Ive had, but it does seem a bit cozier especially as I like a light duvet. Im very pleased with my mattress and would recommend it without hesitation

I'm so impressed!

I'm really pleased I bought this mattress, as it's far exceeded my expectations. I was feeling perhaps I'd made a mistake while waiting for delivery, but was reassured by the 30 day returns policy. But from the first night I've been delighted. Really comfortable, gives good support, and the great bonus of not having to turn the mattress.

Great support for hips and back pain

This mattress provides great support for hip and back pain by ensuring proper spinal alignment. It does not feel hot like other memory foam mattresses i have used so the cool-touch feature seems to work well. The extra firmness took a little bit of getting used to but the mattress still has comfort and give and supports in the right places.

Excellent mattress

This was a replacement mattress for another Tempur mattress bought 18 years ago. It had to be Tempur again as its so comfortable and supportive. The new mattress seemed rather firmer than the old initially but it only took a week or so to get used to it. Its a very, very comfortable mattress and is excellent for supporting ageing joints.

Sleep well

The sales staff at Dreams Yeovil were very good pointing us in the direction we required without being pushy. The service we received was spot on. Delivery was arranged well in advance and we were contacted by the driver with an updated time slot which was kept to. The mattress was just what we wanted and is very comfortable to sleep on.

Has to be the best nights sleep....

My new Tempura mattress is just awesome,the we delivery date was set and I then spent the next two weeks getting exited about my purchase.... The first nights sleep was not that great, but every night since has been a dream .... I have lost the ache's and pains i used to wake up with . It ha to be the bet matters I've ever purchased ..

Does what it says it will!

This mattress appears to do what it says on the label. The initial feeling is quite different from a conventional sprung mattress but it is supportive and not too soft. My wife is very happy with it and says it is much better for relieving her aches and pains. Obviously I cannot yet commetn on the long term durability of the product.

Mattress comfort

The mattress is really comfy. The pillows that came along arent the best ones but got them for free so cant complain. But if i was to buy those pillows I wont spend 150 for each piece but mattress is a perfect go to. Been using this for about a month wakes up fresh and relax. Its really comfy to sit on even without a back support

The Best Nights Sleep Money Can Buy

Since receiving our Tempur mattress my sleep has improved ten fold. I no longer wake up feeling achey and stuff. The mattress is so supportive and makes your body feel weightless whilst you sleep with no feeling of pressure where youre lying. Investing in a good nights sleep is priceless and I am so glad we went with Tempur.

Best matress ever

Well who knew that a matress could make you sleep better and look after you while you sleep if an intruder broke into my house cane upstairs and i was in bed i wouldn't have a care in the world i love this matress added bonus the misses no longer snores and when i leave for work early in the morning she doesnt feel me leave

Tempur very firm mattress

Despite the very firm feel, this mattress is supremely comfortable. Having suffered with chronic back issues for some years, and tried numerous mattresses without joy, this product is an absolute godsend. My partner was concerned that she wouldnt find it comfortable but shouldnt have worried, she loves it as much as I do.

Purchase of mattress

Id like to start by saying the sales person who looked after me while choose the mattress was very polite and helpful.the delivery team was great tools for the purchase of mattress that was the best thing Ive in years having good nights waking up feeling great thanks again for all your help in such difficult times for you

Dream come true.

Chose this mattress after using the Dreams system for selecting the right mattress. I went for the very best of the 3 and have not been disappointed. Firm but very comfortable, getting such a good nights sleep. Using with the tempur mattress topper and pillow. Heavenly! Thank you Dreams, youve made my dreams come true!


My first ever memory mattress, its taking a bit to get used to it, however I see the benefits of it already, no more back pain just to start. The level of comfort is very good. I would give 5 stars, however, after 2 weeks, it still smells quite strongly, I use 2 covers to hide it a bit, so I can sleep with no issues

Does what it says on the tin

After weeks of researching mattresses I visited my local Dreams shop and tried out the technology which suggested this mattress amongst others. I opted for this one and am very pleased with the results.Would definately recommend. Took a couple of weeks to get used to but now my sleep quality has improved no end.

Great, very firm yet suitable for side sleepers

Firmness - very firm - what I need for my back Comfort - very good, suits both side and back sleepers Weight - very heavy , if you need to access storage inside the bed that needs the mattress moved, then this is not one for it. Durability - not owned it long enough to know, comes with a 10 year guarantee though

Comfortable sleep atvkast

I used to sleep badly on the old mattress, woke with dore hips and always felt tired. Now i get a better sleep and no more aches and pains in the morning. Until you try it out you cant be sure you are going yo getvthe sleep you hope for. In this case i did. We are so gled we took the plnugecand bought this one.

Best Mattress I Ever had in my life.

My back says thank you. Me and my wife did the mistake of buying one of these internet mattresses SIMBA and Otty. I have 110 kg and my wife 70kg and in Less than a month I could feel myself sinking so bad that one day I needed help to get out of the bed. Same day went to DREAMS and literally realised my dream.

Firmer but fairer

Initially the mattress felt firmer than we'd remembered, but it supports in all the right places and is a big improvement on the old mattress. My only criticism is that the care leaflet that came with the mattress said that it should be "turned horizontally, from time to time", without suggesting how often.

Good nights sleep

I bought this 3 weeks ago, the first night it seemed strange as this is the first memo6foam mattress we've had, however, since then my sleep has been very restful and I wake up feeling refreshed. Though it is a considered purchase, it is well worth the money, you can't put a price on a good nights sleep.

Great back support

I bought this 2 weeks ago after trying 2 other expensive foam mattresses for a year and waking up with back pain. I though I would give tempur a try even though I thought it was too expensive. I now belive it is worth the investment as I sleep so much better and that changes the quality of my lofe overall.

Tempur Firm Mattress

We had the firmest mattress and the first few days we worried we had made the wrong choice as it was very hard! Thankfully it softened and we are now having the best sleeps weve ever had! The only down fall is that there are no handles to turn the mattress around which makes it difficult as its so heavy.

Firm, supportive & comfortable

We bought this mattress last month and have been using it for 3 weeks. The memory foam construction works incredibly well. We opted for the firm grade which is very supportive. It is noticeable how it adapts to body shape. The CoolTouch cover is effective as well, keeping us cool and comfortable at night.

Best mattress ever

I have always wanted a Tempur mattress but couldnt justify the cost. After suffering more and more from joint pain I bit the bullet and purchased this mattress. It is so comfortable. No more joint pain, better nights sleep. I can sleep comfortably on my back now. Its the best mattress I have ever had.

Deeper than you think.

The new Very Firm cool touch Tempur mattress is surprisingly comfortable. One should be aware that youll need extra deep fitted sheets. Our last two consecutive mattress purchases have been Tempur but they were not as deep and we didnt think to check, hence our new fitted sheets keep slipping off!

Firm yet soft

The mattress feels like a dream, it's very firm, but feels soft, while offering the right level of support at any levels. Lie down and it feels like it's reaching up to hold your back for you. Immediately, I could feel the pressure subside, and I'm looking forward to many more nights of quality sleep

Tempur cool touch mattress

This mattress is great. I bought it because I have back and neck issues and wanted better support without compromising on comfort. It took me a few days to get used to it, but Im sleeping better and Ive noticed a massive improvement as my back is no longer aching when I wake up in the morning.

Not the firmest of mattress I have ever slept on.

Edge of bed soft and it feels like your going to slip off whilst dressing. Get that sinking feeling whilst sitting up watching TV. Feel stuck once I have settled. Mattress is quite cool to sleep on. Saying all that the wife loves it (however she could sleep on a clothes line without pegs!!!)

Tempur Very Firm CoolTouch matt

It's a very firm mattress that contours to your body shape in bed. Which is what we were looking for. It took a week or so to get used to it but no more back pain from the moment I had it. Now I absolutely love it. Very firm but no back pain and the foam recovers quickly from the position.

Really comfortable

Replaced previous 2 single Tempur mattresses I had for 14 years. These 2 new medium ones we bought early March 2020 and are very pleased with the excellent quality and even firmness. We have both agreed that our nights sleeping is much improved and we look forward to going to bed.

TEMPUR matress

Easily the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. I suffer with back pain and usually toss and turn a lot at night. Now I have no pain and rarely move. It doesnt get too hot and even more importantly, I cannot feel my husband move! The best nights sleep Ive ever had.

Everyones dream mattress

It feels rock hard when you touch it,and you think this couldnt possibly give me a comfortable nights sleep,you need to give it a proper trial over a few nights and now my goodness me we sleep well and the mattress just hugs you and protects your posture.Well done Tempur !!!!

I now have a good nights sleep.

What a great way to improve your sleep. The mattress was customised to meet my sleeping pattern. The guys got it right first time. After only a couple of nights bedding it in, I am waking up refreshed,with no aches. I have no reservations in recommending the Tempur mattress

Sensation Elite

We have been sleeping on this matress for 2-3 weeks now, sleeping better, back has stopped hurting and a shoulder complaint has improved dramatically for me. My wife is also sleeping better and her back is much better. Early days but so far si good. Expensive but worth it.

It takes some getting used to

The feel of this mattress is very different to anything Ive had before. You do need to try it in the store first, but even then for the first week or two of use it feels very odd. However it does support you very well and Im enjoying some very good restful nights sleep.

Very comfortable

We have had this mattress for two weeks now and are very happy with it. Really nice and comfy. We tried the softer version in the store but it gave me a feeling of motion sickness when I got up! This one does not move as much and is great for us. Very pleased with it.

Great service

We had great service at Dreams in Reading and the now having the mattress for 3 weeks I can say we are very happy. We were however disappointed that the original mattress was delivered with a rip in it. This was resolved very quickly but quality control needs looking at.

Best bed and Mattress ever.

The reason for my 5-star rating is that this mattress is by far the best one I have purchased. I used to suffer from chronic back pain in the morning but since buying this mattress my pain has eased considerably. I would recommend this mattress and bed frame to anyone.

Cool, comfortable and a complete nights sleep!

I purchased my mattress approximately one month ago I was unsure about it for about the first 10 days then, what a difference it made I had broken nights sleep before on my old mattress and now we both sleep very well, it is a cool comfortable night highly recommended.

Been the best purchase as it is definitely helping

An excellent investment on a mattress as we can notice the change in our night sleep for the better. Its been little over two weeks that we have this mattress now and we can already see the change in our sleep. Very comfortable and provides a great rest for the body.

Tempur Cool Touch Elite Mattress

This mattress is great as you dont move around too much and even when you do the other person doesnt notice. It seems to make me fall asleep quickly and bounces straight back into shape after I get out. My husband says his back feels much better each morning now.

Repeat Buyer

This is my second tempur mattress Ive bought now, after trying different mattresses at our local Dreams we still prefer the feel and quality of the tempur, it was a little bit more expensive, but Im very happy with it and so far I havent had a sleep less night.

The best mattress we've ever slept on

Before this mattress I hadn't really been dreaming when I slept, after I've dreamt every single night. The feeling of "good quality sleep" just being a given is incredible. We took a chance on the firmest mattress and it completely paid off, we absolutely love it.

Never have I slept so good in my life!

Buy it! Just buy it! My wifes back was healed overnight and I cant get up in the mornings. Just the best 2 grand I have ever spent! Cant recommend enough. We have had this mattress for 2 years its my best friend. (This review is serious) Thanks Mike

Fantastic Support

This is a superb very firm mattress that is great with the Sleep Motion bed that I purchased. The two make a great pair. The mattress is firm but has a lovely soft comfort level to it too. Its like sleeping in on air. Been sleeping very well because of it.

This bed is amazing

It's so nice. It's so nice!!!. I had back pain and tangle pain when I woke up in the morning, but it's been almost two weeks since I slept here, and it's gone a lot. It's very firm, but it's not that hard. It's okay. I want to buy bed give my own mother.

No more Backache !

We bought this mattress after careful thought, as our old mattress left us with backache . Can honestly say we sleep so well now this mattress provides excellent support and is so comfortable and our backaches are a thing of the past . Worth the price tag .

Simply great

Absolutely fantastic product. I cannot believe I didn't purchase one of these mattresses earlier. All back and neck pain gone. CoolTouch does work, but still a little warm at times but this just takes a little getting used to as your body acclimates.

Tempur cool touch elite matress

This is by far the best money I have ever spent we both suffer with back problems and every night since buying this we are getting a bit move movement back should have brought one years ago and what a team at dream kind helpful just over all amazed
