Today we're looking at the ActiGel® Glacier 1600 Mattress from Therapur. New to the range this ones exclusive to the top performing mattress retailer Dreams and looks to be a customer favourite. Let's dive in.

For those that haven't heard from Therapur before, it is a brand that is gaining increasing popularity thanks to its great price point and premium materials. Sold exclusively through Dreams online and offline storefronts, this is one you won't want to miss.

If you're suffering from aching back pains, ActiGel® Glacier 1600 Mattress could be for you. The mattress features 1716 (in a king) pocket springs and a comfort grade of Firm. The exclusive ActiGel zoned and profiled foam offers comfort and support while being both breathable and having cooling properties. Finally the soft touch knitted cover proves to be both breathable and resilient, helping further to keep you cool for many years to come. Made in the UK, this mattress is hypoallergenic, has a 1-year guarantee, and comes with free delivery.

Customer reviews are strong for the product, with over 450+ reviews at time of writing and a highly impressive 96% consumer satisfaction. Positive reviews talk of both the comfort and quality offered given the fair price point while there are dozens talking about how their sleep has been transformed and they now get the best sleep of their lives. 

Negative reviews are far rarer with the occasional customer mentioning that the mattress is firmer than they expected. That said however, it's designated as a very firm mattress so you do sort of get what you pay for in this instance.

Reasons to Buy

Hypoallergenic mattresses are absolutely critical for those who suffer from allergies and require a little bit extra care in their sleep routine. Onto the Gel top layer and it's an ideal choice for those looking for much of the benefits of memory foam with non of the downsides around getting too hot and restricted at night.

Reasons to Avoid

With a premium product comes a premium price, this mattress is rarely reduced as the cost of it's components is higher than other mattresses in the lineup. That said, the average mattress lasts around 7 years which makes the cost of this mattress per night of sleep surprisingly reasonable.

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.

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.

What Makes The TheraPur ActiGel® Glacier 1600 Mattress Great?

Firm comfort grade

Firm tension mattresses are most often suited to those who need a bit more support, typically for their back and neck. Mileage will vary depending on your weight and BMI as the tension and how it feels will ultimately be impacted as such. We also see firm mattresses been commonly recommended for their orthopaedic support. Ideal for back and stomach sleepers, although heavier people may find it suitable..

Layered with foam and PurFibre® for comfort and support

Layers of PurFibre® fibres sit in the upper layer where comfort is derived. This fibre layer has brilliant rebound and recovery which gives a decent level of both comfort and support within the mattress.

With an ActiCool® knitted cover

The ActiCool cover is a great addition to a well-performing mattress which gives you better breathability through the mattress. This all comes together to keep you cooler for longer, ensuring great temperature regulation for a deeper nights sleep with less tossing and turning.

With a luxury box top sleep surface

It's hypoallergenic

A Hypoallergenic mattress is one that is unlikely to cause allergies thanks to the materials that make up its composition. This is all thanks to a reduced number of allergens in the compound that are gentle on the skin and won't cause irritation while also reducing the effects of allergy triggers like dust mites and bacteria.

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.

Comes with our 40-Night Sleep Guarantee

The 40 night sleep guarantee is great as it allows you to exchange the product if you are not completely satisfied. This was one of the final challenges for online retailers to overcome comparable to traditional bricks and mortar where you can trial the product in store. Buy with confidence on this model.

Rest easy with a 1-year guarantee

A one year guarantee is suitable for many as the vast majority of problems that may occur often do so within that first year. At the same time, more and more retailers are beginning to offer multi-year warranty and guarantees although these often come at a slightly higher price point on average.

Customer Reviews For The TheraPur ActiGel® Glacier 1600 Mattress

Based on 622 reviews
Really happy with our new TheraPur Mattress

My partner and I used the Sleepmatch service and were advised to go for a 'firm' rated mattress. We tried a few, having had a pillow-top SilentNight mattress for the previous 9 years, we were suprised to find that we both preferred the feel of this TherPur mattress, which was rated as 'extra firm'. Although we were nervous as we had never heard of this brand, we decided to go for it as we were covered under the 40 night guarantee and the mattress has good reviews online. We've been sleeping on this mattress for two weeks now and we are converted. From the first night, the mattress has been so comfortable for us both and we've been sleeping very well. It's also much lighter in weight than our old SilentNight so it's so much easier to turn and really get the fitted sheets tucked in tight. Cannot say if the ActiGel is doing much to keep us cooler at this stage as it's the middle of winter and the nights are colder anyway! But the mattress itself is great. If you need/like a firm mattress, I'd really recommend giving this one a try. As for Dreams, they were brilliant from start to finish, even price-matching the mattress as it went on sale before it was delivered to us. The delivery was perfect and the guys that delivered were polite and came within the time that they said. Our old mattress was taken away as well. We are very happy customers.

Very firm, very warm!

Our old matteress was past its best and we were looking forward to receiving our Therapur Actigel Response 1600. We spent what seemed like a long time trying out various mattresses at Dreams. The sales assistant was very helpful and left us to our own devices and offered advice when asked. So why only three stars? Our first mistake was to assume our slatted base would offer a similar feel to the sprung divan. It doesn't. It has made the matteress much firmer than it felt in the store. The top of the bed is cushioned but under that top cushion are springs that are very firm indeed, and unfortunately for myself it ensures I wake with an aching back especially since I sleep on my side/front. It is also a very warm matteress, to the extent that we immediately swapped our winter duvet for the summer duvet and we also have to sleep with the windows open, and this is in Feb/March. On the plus side we are saving money as we have also been able to turn the heating off in the bedroom. We have had the matteress for the 30 days and will be exchanging it for something softer and hopefully better at dissipating the heat.

Best sleep you could wish for.

With this pandemic being all bad news I must say going to bed has never felt so good, from the moment I walked in my local dreams store and was sized up on the 3d machine that scans you're body shape and sleeping position, apart from going on yet another diet I knew I was in no better place for a new mattress. The bed specialist really knew his stuff explaining the difference between the mattresses that the machine had selected. The service was first class paying extra care to areas that were touched and two metre distances were adhered too. And finally the unsung hero's the delivery guys were fantastic giving me a call to explain they were 30 minutes away and carrying the mattress to the bedroom which was a lot heavier than I expected. So I will finish off by saying Dreams thank you for your 5star service, oh yeah and my TV is starting to pack in, hint hint.

No more broken sleep!

I got this mattress a few weeks back and honestly it's changed my life. I no longer wake up ever couple hours aching and having to adjust my sleeping position. I am a restless and light sleeper, but I definitely wake up more refreshed and no more aches. One amazing benifit that we didn't even realise is that I can violently chuck myself about and it doesn't disturb my partner. At. All. He doesn't move at all while I'm tossing about. He's getting better sleep too! It's a great mattress so far (I know it's early days still) and would highly recommend if you need firm support. Also beware - it is very heavy. We hadn't yet build our frame when it arrived and just having to manover it from the upstairs hallway into the bedroom was a challenge!

Like sleeping on a cloud in Heaven

Well this mattress is the star of the show! Wow... After sleeping on a medium firm mattress that was 8 years old and sagging, my back pain was excruciating, it was time for a new bed. I bought the Therapur actigel extra firm mattress from Dreams along with a divan base, headboard and pillows. I fell in love with this mattress in store and I've been sleeping on it for a few weeks now, back pain gone! Did I die and go to Heaven? No! I'm just sleeping on my new Therapur actigel mattress. It's firm yet so soft and comfortable, no squeaks or springy feeling. You really feel like you're sleeping in luxury. This was a brilliant investment, start your day with the best night's sleep ever. This mattress also has handles on the side for easy rotation.

Excellent for sufferers of back pain

Constantly suffered with back pain for months but with lockdown i decided to get a 'MATTRESS IN A BOX', what a mistake. After another month on the sofa and coming out of lockdown i called into Dreams and after three minutes on there fancy new tech bed, this was one of the mattresses it suggested. WOW What a difference. Three days getting used to it and i can finally get a comfortable, rested and full nights sleep. Slighly gives way to your body weight as it molds around you but fully supporting were you need it the most and most importantly keeping you warm withought overheating. Finally i can sleep again knowing i will wake refreshed and withought pain after a full nights sleep. Thank you Dreams.

good from sport

we decided to get a new mattress, we had been in to store and tried a few before the lockdown and used the dreams bed scanner. it gave us three to look at and the one for us was the firm winner. it is very firm which is help with my partners back pain from old mattress. was best night sleep she had in 2 months. would recommend giving this one a try. I am now used to the mattress as it take a while to become adjusted to new mattresses, don't think for one minute its going to be plain sailing. allot of people don't realise you need time to adjust to a new mattress. a mattress is like a pair of shoes its needs time to break in. this mattress is ideal for for very firm needs.

New Mattress

Bought just over a month ago and the mattress meets expectations - a little firmer than the one we have replaced so still getting used to it though we are sleeping better and longer than on the old mattress. Most importantly the whole mattress does not move when either one of turns over which is great. Therapur gel is interesting - comfortable, supportive and good in that respect but I cannot really feel the cooling properties - perhaps it is too much to expect to feel the benefit of it to come through the thick mattress protector and bed sheet. All the same we are pleased with the purchase

The rejuvinating matress

If you want to wake up like your in your teens again then this is the matress is for you. With the actigel to keep it soft and cool and with the multi pocket springs which stop movement from your loving partners restless sleep. You wake up rejuvinated and ready for the day ahead like you were years younger. been the best investment into my sleep in years and i would advise anyone wanting comfort and great sleep to purchase this product. And for those that wont ever ask but we all do think about - the matress is sturdy and is great to kneel on you dont sink into divets where the springs sit ;)

Comfy and firm

Excellent sales and delivery to try the mattress...Having slept on the mattress for a few weeks now I can confirm this is a comfy mattress. It seemed firmer than the trialled in the shop, but then again this could just be the immediate change between old and new mattress. Occasional whiff of gel is smelt, but I am sure this will wear with age of mattress as it is already less and barely noticable. There are no end handles to assist in pulling whilst changing sheets, but then we may have been spoilt with our previous mattress as it is not common nowadays.

Super firm mattress

our previous dreams mattress lasted 15 years so we thought we would revisit. on the arrival day it was placed in our bedroom so I could unwrap it which I did. it is so much thicker than our last one but not heavy to move at all. the build quality looks top notch and I slept like a log on it the first night , only to find I couldn't move the next day. to be honest it took about a week to get comfortable with it but now my body has adjusted to a new very firm bed I find (and my fitbit tells me) that I deep sleep much longer nowadays.

Very firm mattress but comfortable

We purchased this mattress 4 weeks ago after using the Dreams mattress equipment which suggested we should buy a very firm mattress. We were unsure when it first arrived as it did feel too firm for the first week but we persevered and we are glad we did as it does give us a better nights sleep. There is a gel top on the mattress which is comfortable and with the individual pocket springs there is very little movement felt when we turn over at night so we dont disturb each other. A very firm but comfortable mattress.

The perfect mattress

This mattress has changed my life. It is by far the most comfortable mattress i have ever slept on. I went for a firmer mattress and have not been disappointed. I am getting the best nights sleep i have ever had. I was a really bad sleeper before this and put it down to a number of things, i tried numerous things to help, nothing worked till i found this mattress. The mattress is extremely well made to the highest standards. It looks amazing and is well worth every penny of the price. You will not be disappointed.

Great mattress, highly recommend!

We tried this mattress in-store as it was recommended as the best fit for me and my partner and we immediately liked it but thought it was a little pricey. Having bought a different type of mattress elsewhere and tried it for a couple of months we were still thinking about this mattress and in the end went for it and returned the other one to the other retailer. Best decision we ever made, it really is so comfortable and my partner and I have slept so much better since getting it, would definitely recommend.

Really comfortable and supportive mattress

I had originally ordered this before lockdown but because of the virus I had to wait several weeks for my mattress to be delivered. I have back problems and my old mattress was already causing back pain, I just had to bear it a little longer - including sleeping on the floo!) Ever since my new mattress arrived I have had no back pain - such relief. The mattress is very and supportive without being lumpy and uncomfortable as Some can be. I recommend this to anyone who prefers a firmer mattress.

Best mattress and service

I have suffered from back and neck pain for a while and had some trouble with my sleeping because our mattress has been to hard or to soft, my partner likes a bit more softer than me, I like a very firm mattress. This TheraPure mattress we bought a couple of weeks ago is the best purchase in a long time! It is a perfect combination of very firm and soft and we wake up with a smile everyday now!! I would highly recommend the TheraPure ActiGel Response 1600 Mattress! /Sanna & Johan

All I can say is wow.

This is the best mattress I have ever slept on. I am always pulling beds apart at hotels to see what mattress they use and often look to see if I can buy one. However as soon as we tried this one we knew it was perfect. We have now had it for a few weeks and each night I still go to bed with a sigh of comfort. The only minor complaint is the smell of the mattress. I am sure this will disappear. I do have a very sensitive nose. I would recommend this to anyone. Pure luxury.


For years I have tried to find a mattress that suited me. I have mobility issues and constant pain that wakes me repeatedly during the night. I like a firm mattress whilst my Husband likes a medium. Since having this mattress my nights are so much more comfortable, I still wake throughout but no where near as much. My Husband also finds this mattress very comfortable. So comfortable in fact that he has stopped moaning about the price! We also brought the matching pillows.


I purchased this mattress after laying on the sleep position analysing machine which said that I needed an extra firm mattress. I tried several in store and despite this being the most expensive I kept going back to it and was really excited for it to arrive. Unfortunately after nearly 3 weeks I'm struggling to adjust to it and am finding it too firm. I have given it a good rating as it isn't a fault with the mattress, it just that it doesn't seem to be the one for me.

Sagging and super hot

We are just waiting for the 30 days to pass in order to exchange it. The matress becomes terribly hot at night, it feels like sleeping on a radiator. Moreover, it also started sagging after just a couple of nights and, as a stomach sleeper, I find it terribly unconfortable as my head and feet are higher than the rest of my body ( as your body weight make you sink in the mattress creating a U shape)..back pain started after a few days of use and i am not an heavy person.

Good quality mattress, but it's too hard for us.

Good quality mattress, but it's too hard for us. We are both side sleepers and there is very little give for hips etc. It seems that all the mattresses on display in store are a fair bit softer/worn in than a new mattress. But even after a month it's still very hard. While we realise that it is likely to soften as we use ours, it's still too hard for us so we are using the Dreams 40-day exchange to go for the slightly less firm mattress in the same Therapur range.

Best mattress ever

This mattress was chosen as it seemed an ideal combination of materials that would benefit my wifes back ache. We were not wrong it has proven to be a wise choice and has given a great nights sleep to both of us and my wife can arise without any trouble. I would recommend this mattress without hesitation. The buying process was simple and communication prior to delivery was first class. The two delivery men were very professional and did a great job.

A fabulous Purchase

I was very hesitant in purchasing this mattress due to the price, but then decided that my and my husband's continuous back pain and restless nights outweighed the price. Since sleeping on this mattress we both sleep throughout the night and my back is less painful and i do not feel as uncomfortable. It has only been about a month but I can definitely see an improvement and would recommend this mattress to anyone that suffers from pain in their back.

A great way to buy a mattress

I needed to replace my old mattress but was prevaricating because there was that uncertainty about choosing the right mattress. But the Dreams approach with the use of technology to assess which products will suit you removed all of that head scratching. Taking away the old mattress and delivering the new one to the bedroom was good (bang on time as well) and MP, what do you know - the mattress is great and 8 sleep well and wake refreshed.

Comfortable sleep, good back support

We bought this mattress after trying memory foam kind which wasn't suitable for our body type (tall couple on heavy side). This mattress has been great in our back support, it feels firm but also soft enough not to get back pain from it. The delivery was accurate to the information we got prior, professional customer service. We turned the mattress every week in the first month as instructed, and so far it's equally comfortable both ways.

Best buy

Was unsure initially about about which bed to choose, did a fair amount of research on line went to the store tried all the firm beds, I have a bad back, decided that the firm gel mattress was for us as the mattress was firm but still comfortable, spent sometime with the Salesman popped over the road to Bensons, but still came back to this one even though it was more expensive. My husband has had the best nights sleep in years.

A great night sleep

The first mattress delivered had a few tears around the seem but Dreams replaced it within two weeks which was great. As we were advised the mattress was extra extra firm when it was first delivered, but after a few weeks of sleeping on it (and a couple of rotations) and it is a perfect level of firmness. The mattress feels very solid and we have both slept so well since upgrading. Its definitely worth the extra pennies.

Worth every penny

So comfortable. I deliberated first so long, researching every type of bed, weighing up a ridiculous amount of detail and my decision did not disappoint. Everyone has a preference on how firm they like their mattress to be, but for me this is just perfect. My back felt like night and day from my first sleep and Im a month in and still feel amazing after every sleep. Firm but cuddles you. Its perfect and worth every penny.

Great nights sleep

I moved into my new home and slept on an inflatable mattress for 4 nights and then DREAMS delivered my new mattress, it was so comfortable and gave me the best nights sleep I could have asked for, when my partner stayed over he also commented on the level of support the mattress gave (he needs a firm mattress for his shoulder) and the fact he slept through the night without waking to stretch showed this. Fantastic!

Seamless purchase process

We didn't have to wait long for the scanning machine to become available which gave us four choices of mattress. All four were tried which was an easy elimination for the one which we eventually bought. The purchase and delivery arrangement was seamless. Disposal of the old mattress was set up to be part of the delivery process. Installation was done quickly by the delivery team up two floors with little effort.

Very comfortable

I was a bit unsure about buying a mattress without trying it first. However I shouldnt have had any worries. It arrived and fits perfectly. Despite it being described as very firm it is very comfortable and has been great for my back. It feels great whether on my back or side. My wife is much lighter than me and it suits her too. The mattress is well made and looks quality. Hopefully it will last a long time.

So good Ive bought another!

Very happy with this mattress, always a good night sleep and have found that since using it my lower back pain is much better. It is so good that I have just ordered a second one for another room! One thing I will say is it is definitely worth waiting for an online sale if you can, we waited a few months but t is worth it for what you can save, though the assistants in store will try to tell you otherwise!

Simply the best mattress

I have not for as long as I can remember been a good sleeper. Usually waking around 4am and getting up very early. On the recommendation of my 2 daughters ( who both have this mattress) I purchased it during the Black Friday offer of 25% off. The very first night I slept on my new mattress I slept soundly until 7am. I continue to sleep better than I have in the past. I cant recommend it highly enough.

New Therapur Mattress

I have slept like a baby since receiving my new mattress & bed, its a lovely firm base just what I wanted, have suffered with back & hip pains for a long time and I also have M.S which doesn't help, went and had a computerised check when selecting a new mattress by a very friendly and helpful staff at their Oldham Branch and the minute I lay on this one I knew it would help, sleeping so much better now

Definitely not sleep like log

Very disappointed with this mattress its already appears to have a ridge in the middle and dips in it from sleeping not sure if this is normal. The base came with a stain on it and the fabric seems poorly constructed, we are seeing if this improves before calling them with our concerns the bed was well over 2k so I expected better quality not as good as our old dreams bed which is 10 years old

Perfect good night sleep!

I couldn't have brought a better mattress than the Therapur. The quality of materials used provide the best of comfort and I experience no back pain anymore whatsoever! The 1600 pocket springs make the mattress just that extra firm perfect for my back as I used to suffer terrible back pain with my old mattress but not anymore! This is the perfect mattress for anyone who wants a good nights sleep!

First class service, delivery and sleep

Fantastic purchase from start to finish. The expertise of the sales team at the Loughborough store was second to none. The communication before delivery was extremely professional and the delivery team extremely courteous and helpful. Finally, the mattress. I havent slept so well for as long as I can remember. Thank you Dreams! We will see you for our second mattress purchase very soon

Comfortable and good support

A very comfortable mattress which offers good support, however, one of the reasons for not initially wanting to buy a memory foam mattress was because of how hot they get but I was assured with the ActiGel this eliminates the problem and provides a cooler surface. Sorry to say I haven't found this to be the case. Having said that the mattress is very comfortable so I'll live with it.


The Dreams computer bed chose this mattress for me, suffering with back & hip pain and overheating. This bed is in my opinion very firm, but you can feel it supporting all your joints, you can feel your body start to relax as soon as you lay down, cushioning your ankle right up to your shoulders, and designed to be cooler sleeping much better than I did previous to buying this.

Supports but still so comfortable

We are very happy with this mattress. My partner has a back injury from a biking accident and it gives the support he needs to ease his pain. And for me I have always slept on my back but now i can sleep on my side too without feeling uncomfortable. We both fall asleep very easily with this mattress. I never would have dreamt id spend this much on something and be happy about it!

Very firm!

We bought this product a month ago. I was reading lots of reviews, what took us to Dreams. I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy a mattress without trying it. We had another one in our minds before we tried it. Straight away both of us said YES to this one! We where looking for a firm mattress, in one you can't feel the other person's movements. We are very pleased with it.

Nice, Soft and Firm. Great Mattress

This is our first experience of buying Therapur mattress. we have been really impressed with it.The mattress adjust depending upon our sleeping habits. The mattress provides extra support and comfort really improves your sleep. The sleeping has been well improved ever since this mattress has come to our lives. thank you it couldn't have been more better. keep it up and thank you

The best mattress we have ever bought

We bought this mattress over a month ago, and so far we are loving it. It wasn't the cheapest, but worth every penny. Before buying the mattress I had suffered with lower back pain for about 18 months. Since sleeping on this new mattress from Dreams, my back pain has almost gone. I wake up feeling like I have had a really good nights sleep, which is priceless! Thank you Dreams

Cool and chilled.

The staff at Wimbledon were lovely, courteous and patient. I tried out a bed that analyses the positioning of your body and was given a list to try out. I chose Cool Gel as I always have fans on at night time. This mattress brings down the temperature in the body. I have slept well throughout the night. I would highly recommend this mattress if you want to stay cool.

Dreamy night's sleep

Simply the most restful night's sleep since purchasing this item , Due to the cooling /warming factor of this mattress I'm now able to sleep all though the night without even stirring, My sleep pattern on my monitor has significantly improved proving my point . Thank you Dream's 5* from service instore to correct day/time delivery , and finally aftercare experience.

Highly recommend TheraPur ActiGel Response 1600

The TheraPur ActiGel Response 1600 Mattress was delivered promptly by Dreams. Having used the new mattress for a fortnight now, I am very impressed with the quality and the restful nights sleep from day one. My partner and I were a little apprehensive that this mattress would feel too firm, but its been super supportive for my partners bad back as well comfortable.

Best nights sleep Ive ever had

I bought this mattress after having my last one for 14 years. I hadnt been sleeping well and waking up with sore joints and a sore back...I went into the store tried the mattress finder and tested 7 mattresses and this was the best by far. It was quickly delivered to my home and I have never slept better ! No more sore joints and no restless nights! Brilliant!

Too comfortable

I bought this mattress after being assessed by Dreams' system. I have never been so in love with my bed. It is so comfortable I could stay in bed all day. I get to sleep much easier now and I don't wake up with aches like I used too. I have to say when I purchased it, I baulked at the cost but I'm so glad I purchased it. It is worth every penny (and more).

Therapur 1600 super king size mattress

After having to delay our delivery because the road in front of our house was being replaced, the mattress arrived and was delivered straight onto our bed frame with the packaging removed by the delivery team. We did wait for the sale because of the price, and got a price we were happier with despite the sales assistant telling us there were none upcoming.

Great firm matress

This is a very firm mattress with great support all over the surface. The best feature is how it keeps a good temperature all night. Decided to purchase this mattress after testing a good range of different sprung-pocketed mattresses, all very similar and hard to choose. Only when looking for unconventional detail, found out it's a very pleasant mattress.

A good extra firm / ortho mattress

A really nice mattress if you like an extra firm feel. It benefits from a topper to soften it slightly as it's really quite firm, and quite an adjustment at first. But my husband suffered from back pain on our old medium/ firm mattress, and has seen a significant improvement within a few days. Recommended and was available quickly which was an added plus!

Perfect for someone who gets hot in the night!

This mattress is spot on. I am someone who gets very hot and usually ends up needing some sort of fan on just to cool down. With this mattress I don't need to worry about that at all! The ActiGel cooling keeps the entire bed chilled at all times. The actual mattress itself is very comfortable and every night has been a great sleep since it turned up!

Best nights sleep

After using the sleep machine in store I was recommended to have an extra firm mattress. I wasn't entirely convinced by that but after trying various mattresses in store, plumped for this one. So glad I did. Since having this mattress I've had the best nights sleep I've had in years. No longer waking up aching and still tired. Thoroughly recommended.

Superb Comfort

Not sure exactly how long I have had this, a few weeks I guess but it was so comfortable from day one I lost count. It was slightly higher than my old one probably because that was old and worn. Happy to say my back ache that I suffered every morning is no more. This mattress is really comfortable. Don't want to leave it most mornings. Thanks

Just what we needed

After using the test bed in Dreams we found we needed the Extra Firm mattress, so we went for this one but unfortunately the wrong mattress was dropped off and we got a Medium. No good for us at all but Dreams have sorted the problem without a lot of trouble, our new mattress is being delivered on the 17th of August and we can't wait for it.

Quality mattress for a decent price.

I had been looking for a very firm mattress. I tried this mattress in one of the dreams showroom and immediately fell in love with it. This is a very firm mattress with a good height. I occasionally have back aches and sleeping on floor or a hard surface gives me relief. Since buying this firm mattress, I havent had to sleep on the floor.

This is a good mattress, it's a lot firmer

Good mattress, it's a lot firmer than I rember it being when we had the sleep match in store. We have had it for 4 weeks now and it's settling in just fine now. I'm not sure if this is us getting use to a new mattress that's not broke or the new one settling in. We had a silent night one before and this product is far superior to that one.

Best Mattess Ive Ever Had

I have to say, Im not sure if the cool touch thing works but nevertheless, this is the softest and most comfy mattress Ive ever had. I feel like I wake up enveloped in a hug every morning. Its very hard to leave bed in the morning. Service from Dreams has been amazing. Delivery guys were expert and turned up earlier than delivery slot.

Best nights sleep

Weve been sleeping on this mattress for 2 weeks now and can honestly say that we have never had such a comfortable bed, for years my back has been so painful and I have not had a night where I didnt wakes up several times a night, but..with the new mattress I have had the best night's sleep, EVER - every night. Its a magical mattress.

Quality and Comfort

This mattress is quite exceptional. It was selected after the most detailed process at Dreams Beds conducted by their excellent sales staff. It allowed for individual sleeping positions and movement. Once installed and in use at home it has so far proved to be giving me each night the most comfortable night's sleep. Highly recommended.

Best night sleep ever!!

I come out of hospital to having this mattress delivered and oh my god, I feel on to it and just straight asleep. Ive never had a mattress that is so comfortable. I dont over heat with. We picked this mattress with the new instore technology bed which calculates the best mattress to your body. Best thing ever invented that.

Good quality firm mattress

We took a punt with this mattress given the lockdown and not wanting to go into stores. I traditionally like the firm mattresses, but this mattress was on sale and thought that if the mattress was too firm we could return it as part of the dreams return policy. However, this mattress is perfect, not too firm and still comfy.

Firm mattress

The all process during covid-19 went very smoothly to order the mattress. I have received a bag to put my old mattress. I left the old one the drive and the drivers left the new one on the drive to my request so social distance were kept. Very happy with the mattress , so firm. Worth to wait as well for the 20% off

First class from start to finish

Highly recommend using this service, very honest about mattress which was delivered very quickly by their own service; was called in morning with option to change days if needed. Mattress was packaged well and Im very impressed with the ease of it all and the quality. Thank you! No more bad backs for me, nice and firm!

First good night's sleep for a long time

The mattress was delivered this month (January 2020) and we had anticipated that there would be a few nights that our bodies would need to get used to it as the mattress was a lot deeper than our old one. We were wrong as we both fell asleep within minutes and slept solidly until early morning when the alarm went off.

Fantastic mattress!

Bought this 2 months ago and wow, why did we wait so long! So firm and comfortable. Yes it was expensive for us but with the 30 months interest free option, we were able to get our perfect one. Love it and it's such good quality! The salesman was great in store and it was delivered less than a week later! Very happy

Good quality mattress

I have used this mattress for about six weeks. It arrived in great condition and is very well made. Dreams recommended a very firm mattress and this certainly is very firm. I have taken a while to get used to it, with some disturbed nights too start with, but my I have less trouble with my back than I did before.

An excellent purchase

The previous mattress had given eleven years service but was beginning to creak a little. A visit to the local Dreams outlet gave a plethora of choice. However, there was not much debate regarding the choice made. Since the mattress arrived sleep, has been so relaxed.Would recommend this product wholeheartedly.

Very happy

We previously had a highly recommended memory foam mattress which started well but dipped quickly. We bought this one to ho back to springs and it is firm but comfortable. We are sleeping very well. The Superking size is huge and great for my husband who is over 6ft. We feel very cool through the night aswell.

Comfy, heavy, bargains to be had.

It's a very comfortable mattress but it's very heavy and difficult to manoeuvre, so one star off for that. We bought a second one for our guest room from a well known auction site - cosmetic damage that will never be seen but oat one third of the full price. I'd definitely recommend trying the latter route.

Perfect mattress

This was the first mattress I tried after using their sleepmatch machine and I fell in love straight away, none of the others I tried afterwards compared. I was helped by two in store team members both of which were very polite, friendly and helpful. I know Ill be happy with this mattress for years to come.

Extra supportive and cooling

I purchased this a few weeks ago as I have suffered with terrible aches and pains when I wake in a morning. I also get extremely hot during the night. The mattress has given very firm support which has helped reduce the morning discomfort and the gel covering has helped maintain a cooler body temperature.

A great mattress which has helped with fibromyalgi

My wife has fibromyalgia which causes her pain daily all over her body so getting a good night's sleep is very important. This mattress has helped improve her sleep which in turn gives her a better start to the day. It is very well made and gives great support but also still very comfortable to sleep on.

No more bad back!!

After years of back problems I finally found the miracle cure. This mattress is amazing. At 1st I thought it was way to expensive but as the old saying get what you pay for. Its firm but still the most comfortable mattress ive slept on...and my bad back has disappeared. I would recommend

Very comfy for a firm mattress

A month in and finding the mattress very comfy. As a side sleeper I used to suffer from painful hips and was sceptical about the in-store recommendation from the machine for a firmer product. However, so far it has proved extremely comfortable, and the cooling gel seems to be working effectively too.

New Mattress for bad back

Firm and supportive but softened by the topper. Purchased after I developed a bad back and felt that my memory foam Mattress wasnt giving me the support needed. Its taken a little whilst to get used to but has made sleeping on my back and side much easier as well as getting out of bed easier too

Highly recommended

This is an amazing mattress we have bought our second one for a quest bedroom. This stays cool and is firm yet due to the gel layer soft. My sister has had a terrible mattress from a very well known British high end store and we have recommended they come to dreams for their next mattress

My TheraPur ActiGel Response 2000

This is a fantastic product, I live never realised the importance of a good bed.I now know that I've been having sub standard sleep my whole life.I literally look forward to going bed with Thera pur acti gel2000 mattressevey single night, an investment in ourselves, a fantastic mattress

Good night's sleep at last

After several years of having back ache from sleeping on a worn out VI spring mattress (which had been fantastic) we bought a new one. My lower back is still adjusting but from the first night I slept well, and didn't wake up with back ache - and I have nursing acquired back injuries!

Defective ottoman bed and big delay on a replaceme

The mattress is awesome but the bed not so good, defective when it arrived and now we have to wait until the 15th of February for a replacement which was meant to happen on the 6th of January. Not happy is an understatement, cost me time off work and so will the next date given.....

Incredibly comfortable!

We bought this mattress a few weeks ago, and are now having the most comfortable sleep we've ever had. We moved from a memory foam mattress to this one, as we wanted to keep to a stiff mattress but with a bit more 'give' than a memory foam. Very satisfied and would highly recommend.

Recent purchase

So far, these has been the nest mattress I have ever slept on After buying beds and matressed online we decided to go to our Local Dreams store and try their sleep test. Best decision ever! Delivery was on time and the delivery guys set up the bed in a prompt and professional way

Therapur Actigel response mattress

We wanted a firm mattress due to both of us suffering from back issues. However when the mattress first arrived, It was a bit too firm for the first couple of days leaving us with aches and pains in the morning but then it gets better as it settles. Now we find it quite comfortable.

Tempur mattress

This mattress is amazing and suites us as a couple. The mattress sides are fun and it makes it easy to get out of bed. We both have disability issues and are both very happy with the purchase and the way the staff helped us and were interested in helping us get a goods nights sleep

Money well spent on this amazing comforta mattress

The mattress is so comfortable that I regret why we didn't change it sooner. Although it's rated very firm but it's not stiff at all but instead provide so much support that for a big person like finally able to get some good night sleep. Couldn't recommended this mattress enough!

Perfect mattress.

We originally went in the store because we both suffer from back problems and believed our mattress wasn't helping. The staff were very helpful and put us through their tests. We found this mattress to best fit our requirements and one month on our back are much better. Thank you.

A mattress that makes you "float"

Very sturdy mattress yet feels soft on the surface. It gives you good support on all parts of your body so when you lie down on it it feels like floating on water... I've had many nights of good sleep on it. It's been nearly a year since I bought it and it's been good ever since


After trying this product in the shop, we noticed straight away how comfortable it was. An added bonus is the actigel, this gives off a nice cool feeling and also helps regulate your body temperature on warm or cooler nights. I would highly recommend this mattress to anyone.

Great Buy

I bought this mattress to replace a year old mattress which was too soft and causing back pain. Despite trying it out in store I had reservations whether it would be too hard. Turns out to be answer to my back aches from the day it was delivered. Supportive but comfortable

Best Mattress

Awesome Matress, had a Simba and myself and my wife would wake up every morning in absolute agony with back pain, went into Dreams staff were so helpful, put us on the sleep machine which recommended this matress, and within 2 days we were waking up with no pain whatsoever

Best sleep ever

The mattress is exactly what I need- firm and comfortable. Its not bouncy but there is a little give. Unlike memory foam I dont overheat. You will need extra deep sheets as the mattress is quite thick. The only problem is its very heavy - moving it is a 2 person job!

Look good!

Had the mattress 3 weeks, although it seems fine and comfortable, I have not yet appreciated the TheraPur ActiGel which was what I wanted to keep me a little cooler. Also, did not realise that it was going to have more depth to it, so have get new bottom fitted shets.

TheraPur ActiGel Mattress

This mattress looks well made and has a good depth, my husband likes it but I have hip and back problems and so far have found it too firm. Hoping with time it will soften but have just bought a topper to add comfort, which sort of defeats the object of a new mattress!

Comfortable and firm

We did the sleep match in store and was recommended this mattress. We ordered it online and the lads delivered it upstairs for me. Since using it, we have both struggled to sleep and it has given us bad backs. But we are getting used to it. Hopefully all will be okay.

Great Mattress

We bought this mattress from Dreams Fulham. We were helped by James, he was incredibly helpful and patient with us. We chose this mattress because its extra firm but has a gel layer on top to make it more comfortable. We didnt like any mattresses with memory foam.

So Comfy!

After having a shot on the Dreams mattress analyser we decided to purchase this so so Comfortable! Fab night sleep and certainly not the aches and pains we had previously. We went from a medium to very firm matress. Brilliant. Service was fab as well.

Worth the money.

Love it! Been going to bed at 8pm every night for the last couple of weeks. It's really firm and supportive but has the layer on the top that has a bit of give (but not too much that it feels like your doing a whole body workout just to turn over!). Hope it lasts!

Really love my new bed

Wanted a new bed after having spinal surgery. Feel the bed is a little to firm for me. Could do with being a smidgen softer. However I am having a better nights sleep and I appear to be waking more refreshed. Not sure about this temperature thingy though. Good buy

TheraPur WctiGel Glacier 1600;Mattress

From the first night I slept in my new bed I had a great nights sleep. With the high temperatures we have had recently my bed has been cool and comfortable. It has also been great for my back which I injured as a child. I would highly recommend this to others.

Fantastic mattress

Online ordering was quick and easy Delivery was easy and did not effect my day The mattress is really comfortable with plenty of support. Have slept so well on it since we purchased it. Excellent value for money, im glad we spent a bit more for extra quality.
