Overview

becky says

The ActiGel® Arctic 2600 Mattress by Therapur is one of the most popular within the range, with over 700 positive reviews and a great offer, this is one not to be missed.

Let's start with the support layer, this mattress utilises pocket springs as a base, that's my favourite. A pocket spring base is better than many of the alternatives available, ranging from open coil traditional, to reflex foam, neither offers the same level of support that a pocket spring base can achieve.

Onto the comfort layer and you get a decent serving of actigel. This is the layer that separates your body from the springs and without it your mattress would be far more uncomfortable. Fortunately the actigel layer operates as a fantastic comfort layer and one that serves this product well, giving you a soft, squishy and moulding platform that makes it feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.

I really like this mattress and I'm not alone, the 500+ other people that have reviewed all love it too with an impressive 93% consumer satisfaction at time of writing. This is impressive because it shows that after receiving the product the vast majority are satisfied with the cost, quality and value perceived, all of which are necessary in turning a good product into a great product.

Negative reviews are few and far between but we did find a couple mainly around perceived firmness. What appears to be happening is many of the Dreams shop floor models are due a refresh and as such have naturally softened over time, this in turn creates an unrealistic expectation as the mattresses that are then been delivered are feeling firmer than what was trialled in store. This isn't too much of an issue in that the complaints are not around quality, rather tension differences. We'd advise giving your new mattress sufficient time to bed in as settlement and softening will naturally occur.

Positive reviews far outweigh the negative reviews however, many of which you will see below. Positives include the great back and neck support with many reporting their ailments in this area have completely subsided. Others are quick to remark and the great quality to cost on offer with people saying that their sleep has never been better.

Overall this is a great quality mattress at a reasonable price point. The spring system and the quantity of those springs are both at the upper end of the quality segment and the addition of breathable gel layers for comfort will only further aid in the all around pleasurable experience that this mattress will bring, I love it.

*some elements of this review and the reviews supported by customers were offered against the previous model known as the Therapur ActiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 Mattress. The TheraPur ActiGel® Arctic 2600 Mattress is an upgraded model that takes everything that was great about the response and added more springs for enhanced support and better body contouring.

  • 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.

What Makes The TheraPur ActiGel® Arctic 2600 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 & 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 a knitted ActiCool® 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.

The pillow top layer gives a luxurious feel

A pillow top works as a permanent additional comfort layer that sits at the top of your mattress offering an additional degree of thickness to help separate you from the base support layer. Ideal for those who want more softness and luxury that allows them to sink deeper.

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.

TheraPur ActiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 Mattress

I have been using this mattress for about a month now, and it is in truth, the best mattress I have ever slept on. I'm a restless sleeper, and while I fall asleep on my front, I wake up on my side so I really need something where I can lie on my shoulder without it feeling like it was getting trapped or pinched underneath me. The mattress provides just the right amount of support and softness that I can move onto my side in the night, sink into the mattress with my shoulder (but not too much at my hip), and not be aware of it or wake up, which was a problem I had with my old mattress. The ActiGel layer is a nice feature that helps regulate the temperature in the bed and stops me from overheating. Just imagine that cool side of the pillow feeling but on your mattress. So far the rebound on the memory foam has also been fantastic, I've had memory foam products in the past where they've started to sag pretty quickly, thankfully that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am rotating the mattress top to toe every week as directed so that may have an impact. I have no complaints at all with the mattress, and am over the moon with it, but some possible points for readers to be aware of: - The ActiGel may not be for everyone, if you feel the cold more then I think this might not be your cup of tea. If that sounds like you I would definietly recommend going into a store and trying the mattress out before buying. - There is a little bit of a smell when you first start using the mattress, I assume from the ActiGel layer, but this has already disappeared from mine after a month of use. Overall I am very satisfied - super comfortable mattress that I look forward to sleeping on every night, worth the money.

Firm mattress - finally, a good nights rest!

I visited Dreams 3 times (twice to try mattresses & 3rd visit for purchase), spent more than intended but so glad I took my time and considered/researched all options, including other mattresses within the TheraPur range. Apparently this mattress made my face & body completely relax, that I couldn't disguise. Back/pelvis issues, menopause/insomniac & married - this mattress works. It's firm, love the cool feel of the top layer (very useful with increasing hot summer nights) and the springs to the edge mean we don't feel movement from each other. The memory foam cradles your body & no dip/movement when either of us moved in the bed, essential for a light sleeper. It has a smooth top layer, no tufts, which keeps my pelvis in alignment and can now side or back sleep again. The quality of fabric & construction is superb, feels & looks luxurious. Consider sex life, only range I came across that factored or mentioned this and yes, it's perfect. No noise or creaking from this bed. I need good rest to do life 'adulting' and not be a whiny toddler! Adored previous mattress and was really reluctant to replace it in case we got our choice wrong. Research & time spent trying it out paid off. If your sales advisor rushes you - go elsewhere or return later. Don't be intimidated into a quick purchase. I had a brand & type, this range definitely changed my mind and would definitely recommend.

I love the Actigel Mattress

Best mattress I have ever had, slept on, we came into the store and got speaking to a member of staff, me and my partner sleep slightly differently so we got into the 3D scanner bed, the lady pointed out a few mattresses that would work for us both, we went to one and as I said I can get hot in bed she pointed out this one, as soon as we laid on it it was like love, it wasnt too much money compared to a lot just right bang in the middle pricing, we did have ideas about memory foam mattress and the zero gravity beds, but after trying out about 5 more mattresses to see if we could get one we like on a zero gravity bed we decided to just lay on this mattress one more time, nothing compared to it, we just loved it, while moving house we paused our delivery, in the house ordered it and so glad we did, have never had a better nights sleep! Love this mattress got a soft feel to it but also nice and firm due to the coils under the gel layer

Excellent purchase and service!! would buy again

i purchased this about a month ago after having years of shoulder and back pain. decided to spend the money and get something decent. from the moment i walked in to the store i knew i was being looked after. they layed me and my wife on the bed where they scanned our positions and offered us a mattress and pillows that would suit. followed their recommendations and tried a few out of the scope too. bought this one as it was a happy medium and since my back and shoulder pain is now virtually gone! so happy with my purchase!! even the delivery guys were great! carried everything upstairs for me and we assembled it ourselves (bought a duvan bed frame so very easy) again extremely happy and so worth the money considering how much time we spend sleeping or in bed in general.

Like sleeping on a cloud

Me and my wife have been through 4 mattresses in the last 5 years; an Eve, a Simba, an Emma and a SilentNight. We just couldnt find the right one and the biggest issue with all 4 was that they provided very poor lower back support or if you're a side sleeper to centered support. The Therapur does just that! We've had it for 2 weeks now and it is a dream. There is medium-firm support whether u lie on your back or side. If one of us gets up in the middle of the night the mattress doesn't move so the other stays sleeping. In addition, the mattress comes with a cooling layer on top which is meant to keep sleepers cool if one of you gets hot! We invited family round to try it and they agree that the statement of "like sleeping on a cloud" is spot on!

5
This mattress ??????

Bought this 4 weeks ago as both mine and my partners backs are terrible we both suffer with arthritis in our spines and hips and had been in agony every morning with our last mattress. We needed support and comfort and also Im going through the menopause so get bad night sweats so the therapur with cooling top layer was recommended after the bed sleep test. Wow this mattress!!! We wake up in the mornings now refreshed and in much less pain than previously. Obviously the mattress cant solve our issues alone, but the support and comfort level have definitely attributed to our overall pain levels and well being. We feel years younger getting up!! Absolutely worth every penny!

Super Comfortable Mattress

We recently moved and bought a new super king size bed and wanted to invest in a good mattress to go with this. Having visited our local Dreams store we were able to spend loads of time checking out the range of different mattresses and decided on the TheraPur. The store experience was very positive and the mattress was delivered as agreed by a super delivery team who dealt with the challenge of getting this upstairs well. We have had the mattress a few weeks now and it is really comfortable and combined with the investment we've made into really lovely bedding, feels really luxurious and provides just the right amount of support for us, sleep is now a total pleasure :-)

Lovely firm mattress

I have had this for about a month now took a little while to get used to the new firm mattress as my old one was well passed it and unsupportive. However, we have noticed this appears shorter than the last we bought from Dreams as our pillows slide down the head end during sleep. We have pushed up the mattress as far as poss and a noticeable space or gap is now at the bottom end. It is really nice to have the support back in a bed for a good sleep. Delivery was exceptional. Delivered and unpackaged to the bedroom. Shoes off without the need to ask. Quick and easy. Took the old one which was waiting in its bag by the door. Thank you

Really comfortable mattress!

We bought this about a month ago. We love how comfortable it is, so much better than our previous mattress. We were told that the ActiGel topper doesn't heat up like memory foam does - I've found it warmer than our previous mattress which didn't have any sort of topper, but certainly not too hot, despite the temperature being quite warm some nights recently. I can only imagine that memory foam warms up much more. I still find it odd seeing the thickness of it, as our previous mattress was much thinner, but it's nice being able to get into bed without having to bend down. A really comfortable night's sleep! Would definitely recommend.

Therapur Actigel Plus mattress

We bought this excellent mattress about a month ago after taking the Dream Sleep assessment and found our choice to be absolutely the right one! Jackie took us through all our options and gave us plenty of time to make our decision. Having slept on this mattress my lower back pain has completely gone and sleep right through to morning, I wake refreshed and with no pain. My wife also loves the mattress as now her neck ache has subsided, also there is no disturbance when either of of turn in bed which aids for better sleep pattens. All things taken into consideration this has been the best purchase we have made.

5
You will not regret buying this!

This mattress feels so luxurious, I have never slept on such a comfortable bed and still cant really believe that it is ours! I work on my feet all day and was starting to get hip pain and at times, shoulder pain too. This has now gone and we have only had the mattress for three weeks. I could tell this difference with the cooling gel straight away. I was worried it would feel cold immediately on getting into bed but this is not the case. It seems to regulate my body temperature all night. Am interested to see what it will be like in the summer. I could not recommend this mattress highly enough!

5
Youve tried the rest now buy the best.

What can i say... this is the best mattress weve ever had, the comfort alone is amazing and then you have the TheraPur ActiGel topper just makes it a cut above the rest. If you get hot in the night and you cant sleep with being so uncomfortably hot then this is an absolute must for you but don't think that this is a cold mattress to sleep on, it seems to be cool when you need it but also keep you at a nice comfortable temperature so you're not throwing the covers off one minute and then needing them on again the next. Trust me, you dont know how much you need this mattress until you have it.

5
Hooray for sleep again!

This has changed my life. Am now able to sleep properly. Being a woman of a certain age I needed something to help with the consistent sleepless nights, and the discomfort I was experiencing from my brick of a mattress I had. It's not too soft in the slightest but is cushioned enough to no longer wake with a painful hip or knee from sleeping on my side. It's bliss. I bought a pure cotton mattress protector and the overheating in my sleep has reduced drastically. I'm hoping it lasts, but would most definitely recommend both the mattress and the sales staff. Thanks for giving me my life back.

5
Great quality

We really needed a new mattress having had the previous mattress for 8 years and the old bed base for 43 years. It's taken me and my husband a few weeks to adjust and get used to the new mattress because the old one had gone so soft. We're both in our 70s and therefore we are both a bit sensitive in certain areas like the hips and back. Now we feel very comfortable and supported sleeping on our new TheraPur ActiGel 2200 mattress. It was brilliant being able to try out all the mattresses in the shop before coming to our decision which one we should buy. I think we made the right choice.

4
Cooling Topper

I bought this bed over a month ago and the memory foam one had needed replacing and make me too hot. I was drawn to how cool this one felt in the shop. My concern was the mattress protector they said they would throw in with the deal was very thick . By the time the sheet was on top you wouldnt feel the cool layer. We were told to go for the tempur protector which we did as this one was much thinner. Now its taken about 3 weeks to get used to the bed but if Im honest I think the cooling mat is not as effective as it could be with the protector and fitted sheet.

5
Perfect for me!

I had tried something similar when on holiday in Tresco, Isles of Scilly, and had had the best nights sleep for a long time. I made the decision then to investigate a new mattress on my return home. I went with a friend to the large Dreams store in Oxford and chose my mattress because it felt similar to the one on holiday. I havent regretted the decision even though I had to buy new fitted sheets because of the thickness of the mattress! I absolutely love it and have started getting a quality nights sleep because it gives me real relief from my achy right hip.

5
Sleeping on a cloud!

I was sceptical about the comfort and worried about heat from the gel topped mattress, having used a foam topper for over three years, but I was worrying unnecessarily! The bed is absolutely cool and so comfortable that it is like sleeping on a cloud! I genuinely cannot wait to get unto bed each evening and often retire to the comfort and cosiness of my bed. The mattress is deeper than normal so I do have to buy extra deep fitted sheets or a king size flat sheets. but the mattress has transformed my sleep so that's a small price to pay!

5
Worth every penny!

Right from our entrance to the store, Steve was super helpful. We used the mattress tester to see which was best for us. Steve really knew his stuff! We picked the mattress and the pillows used for the testing (amazing!). We called over the phone the following day to purchase over the phone, the person we spoke to was able to find our recommendations and process the order. Delivery was quick, and even the delivery guys were so friendly and helpful! Would absolutely use Dreams again! P.s The actual mattress is like sleeping on air!

Comfortable but hot

I have had this about 6 weeks now. I was having a lot of hip pain and this mattress has really helped ease this. Very comfortable. There is no roll together which is good. However, the gel top is very disappointing it does not keep you cool and I am far too hot at night. The mattress also retains your body heat so if you go to the loo in the night the mattress is still hot when you get back in bed. I could have saved some money and just bought a standard pillow top mattress. Not sure whether the gel could just be faulty?

4
Most comfortable for me

I am a physically active sportsman side sleeper and have sporadic pain in my shoulders at night and wanted a supportive mattress that wouldn't sag into the middle but soft enough on top for my shoulders to sink into. I tried every mattress in the store at least three times and a toss up between this and one almost twice again expense. I went back again three weeks later and then again and each time found this the most comfortable for me. Waited for the sale and bought it. Good delivery service right to the bed room

Actigel plus mattress

This mattress is pretty comfortable, although it took a few days to settle and we both commented on how firm it was. We were both surprised that it was not as soft as the one we tried in the store. My husband was really happy with it straight away but it has taken me longer to get used to it. We have a mattress topper covering it and this seems to affect the cooling properties of the gel , so it isnt as effective as I was expecting. Despite this it is ok but not as comfortable for me as I would have hoped.

5
EXCELLENT mattress & customer service!

Couldnt recommend this mattress enough! Its perfect for those who arent too keen on purely memory foam mattresses or entirely spring based. This is a perfect meet in the middle! I was also sceptical about the cooling effect of the AntiGel that disperses heat throughout the mattress but in these hot nights in the heatwave we were the most comfortable weve ever been sleeping! No more excessive sweating! Couldnt recommend enough! And dreams have been an absolute pleasure to work with beginning to end!

5
So comfy and stays cool in the heatwave

We tried this mattress in store and it was definitely our favourite. It was so comfy!! And it really has kept us cool in the heatwave. So over the moon with it and have not woken up in the night since. Its quite a thick mattress compared to most due to the gel layer but 30cm deep fitted sheet fits perfectly. The delivery guys were amazing as well, so friendly and courteous of my stuff, moving a vase out of the way just incase and putting on overshoes. Would highly recommend this mattress and Dreams

3
Not a perfect fit

We got a super king size about a month ago. We were used to a low profile bed/mattress so this one is a lot higher at 12 plus inches. Its not ideal with a baby and toddler to get on and off and have a near me cot. Also there is a slight gap at the top by the head board. I am used to putting my phone there. With this mattress the phone falls through all the time from the top end of the mattress. On a positive note it does feel sturdy. Not sure if I appreciate the temperature control gels effect.

5
So comfy!!!

We was stuck between so many mattresses... We used the Dreams technology which helped us decide what type of mattress would suit our sleeping style which was great. We ended up going for the Therpur antigell 2200 mattress which is more than we anticipated spending but it is so comfy and it's generally helped us already as we both struggled with sleeping.. The person at dreams was also very helpful and knowledgeable and not a pushy salesman at all as we visited on three separate occassions.

5
No more morning aches.

Had this for a couple of weeks now and it's really comfortable. Went shopping for a new mattress as we'd started to wake up aching from our old, firm one. We tried several in the shop and despite this being a lot more than we had intended to pay it was by far the most comfortable for us and we kept going back to it. Now after two weeks of good sleep and no aching back it's worth every penny. We were surprised however that it comes with only a year's guarantee, would have expected longer.

5
Cant fault it.

Delighted! Having persevered with the memory foam mattress which claim they are the best i was excited to get our new mattress. The one feature i wanted was gel as i like to be able to find a cool spot when im hot and this did not disappoint. We ordered instore in Inverness after having a go on the bed that gives recommendations. Staff were very knowledgeable and put us at ease with parting with our hard earned cash. We have now had it for 2 weeks and i cant find any fault with it.

5
Mattress suits us perfectly

Aimee and Wilmoth made looking for our mattress very stress free, we felt relaxed enough to really get a great chance to feel what mattress suited us. Unfortunately the head office hadn't updated the system to show it wasn't available for delivery. Aimee tried every avenue for us. When it became available online, I went back to the branch as I know commission is made and from the experience we received I really felt they deserved the sale, had a great night sleep since

4
So comfy a massive upgrade

A massive upgrade for us from our cheap IKEA mattress. The weather has been on the warm side and I'm definitely sleeping cooler thanks to this mattress. I haven't seen a miraculous change in my backache like other reviews suggest so it's likely more to do with the way I sleep than the mattress. 4 stars I highly recommend but don't expect it to solve all your back and restless sleep problems. Reccomend you get some extra deep bottom sheets as this thing is super deep.

5
Comfortable

A mattress is always a considered purchase, so i read lots of reviews on different mattresses of different price ranges and decided on this one. Even though it was half price it was still quite a lot of money. My old mattress was 9 years old and a bit lumpy. I made the right choice. The mattress is very comfortable and both myself and my husband took to it straight away. Well worth the money i paid though i am not so sure i would have brought it at full price

5
extremely comfortable

My immediate response to all my friends was that Dreams is the best outlet to visit if requiring new bedding requirements. The reasons I gave were, extremely friendly efficient and highly professional staff, and a great variety of beds etc. to choose from. The whole process from final selection to completion of sale documents together with delivery schedule was handled with great courtesy. On a rating out of 10, your staff scored 10+. Highly recommended.

5
The most comfy mattress EVER

We had our existing mattress for way too long and were reluctant to change because it was like an old shoe but this mattress is a game changer. From the first night it was literally a dream. Firmer than our previous one but it just moulds around you. In my opinion, better than a full memory foam mattress and really pleased we opted for this model. No more bad backs, and not one night waking up hot due to the gel aspect. Seriously best purchase EVER!

5
Sleep well

We needed a new bed, so got this mattress to go with it.. oh my.. i dont want to say its the best mattress ive ever slept on but.. it is.. my sleep pattern has improved greatly, i get more every night now.. it is so so comfortable, we bought the gel pillows to compliment it.. wow.. just wow... it really is that good.. ive already recommended it to family and friends.. even had some pop up for a visit to try it and are now purchasing their own very soon.

5
Amazingly Comfortable Cloud

I recently upgraded to this mattress from a cheap double I bought years ago. This bed is such an incredible upgrade, the memory foam layer on top is cool and helps regulate my body temperature so I rarely overheat in the night. The extra memory foam and springs underneath gives support and the bed is comfortable whether I'm on my back or side. I would highly recommend this mattress, it gives a great night's sleep every night. Worth every penny.

5
Best nights sleep

Our sleep is so much better since buying this mattress. I've struggled getting a good quality sleep for years (mainly due to having fibromalgia) but since getting this mattress I am waking up less, not struggling to get comfortable and having a much better quality sleep each night. The mattress gives good support and contours to the body, keeping my hips and back supported and comfortable. A top quality mattress that we are very happy with.

5
5* comfort

Ive been sleeping on my new mattress for about 2 weeks now and its so comfy and offers lots of support for my back, I suffer with back problems and sciatica so a good mattress is a must! This mattress offers comfort and support, which I didnt get from my last one, its rated a medium and has the cooling gel although I dont really feel it with the mattress protector on and a sheet, but overall Id recommend this mattress and give it 5*

5
So relaxing

This was the 3rd Mattress we chose , although the others were NOT from Dreams. It was more expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for. This Mattress is soooo comfy , when trying this in the shop feeling so relaxed and comfy and then trying others that felt OK then trying this one again there was no competition you just melt into this but it also has the good support underneath you too. I highly recommend this mattress.

5
So comfortable!

Bought this in August after an Emma mattress I had been using for 3 months started giving me a dodgy back. Im 36 with no health issues so this was a surprise after the rave reviews. My new mattress was picked out as one of a handful of recommendations by the store assistant, supported by the test bed thing they have. This had the edge over another close competitor because of the cool touch technology - I can get really hot in bed.

5
Brilliant mattress for firm and hot sleepers

Very comfortable mattress if you both prefer a firmer surface and sleep hot. The cooling gel seems like a fad but it genuinely feels great and regulates my temperature as I sleep, even though a mattress protector and bedsheets. The gel layer also provides the right amount of cushion to help straighten my spine as I lay on my side to sleep. Overall it's a fantastic mattress and you should really consider it and try it out in store.

Excellent service

From entering the store to the mattress being delivered was excellent , the delivery guys were brilliant, unwrapping the mattress and taking all the packaging with them, the bed is extremely comfy but wish I hadn't bought 1 of the pillows as I just cant sleep on it and at 109 was an expensive mistake, they give you 40 days to test the mattress wish they did the same deal with the pillow. Overall great service and company though

TheraPur ActiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 Mattress

I had previously bought a Dormeo S Plus mattress and had to return it as it was too firm and too hot to sleep on. I wanted a mattress that would offer enough support, but also be soft enough to relieve pressure points. I also wanted something a bit cooler. This mattress is super comfortable and seems to get better as time goes on. It's not the coolest mattress, but I'm certainly not overheating like before. Definitely recommend.

5
Very comfortable

I had seen recommendations for this mattress , but I was worried that it might keep the heat like my Tempur mattress had. I need not have worried as it was extremely comfortable and it did not seem to hold my body heat. Overall I will say without a shadow of doubt it is the most comfortable and the best mattress I ha e ever slept in. But be warned, you may not want to get up in the morning as it is so good to sleep I .

Comfy mattress

I bought this mattress a month ago. We tried it out in the Dreams shop and nearly fell asleep. It is solid yet soft and supportive. Importantly bot my partner and I can toss and turn with disturbing each other. My only criticism is that it gets very hot when you lie on it. I suspect this the gel layer. This isnt a problem for us as we live in a cold house in Scotland, but would be no good for warmer climes.

5
Love it!

We have had our brew bed for just over a month and really wish we had made the purchase a long time ago. The mattress is perfect for us. The topper part is super comfy and seems to warm our joints. My husband has suffered with shoulder problems and since having the mattress it is much better. Could be a coincidence but Im pretty sure this good quality mattress has had a positive impact. Highly recommend.

5
Comfiest mattress

I ordered this mattress over a month ago. I was given a delivery date upon purchase and they fulfilled that without problems. The delivery team kept me up to date with their location so no time was wasted waiting in. The mattress is firm with with a spongy foam topper making it incredibly comfortable. It is light to lift and manoeuvre too. I love this mattress and am thoroughly pleased with my purchase.

4
Nice mattress, just not firm enough for us!

Bought this as we needed a mattress there and then so had limited choice. The price was really good. The mattress is perhaps a little softer than we would normally choose, but as we needed it there and then the choice was limited. If we had the the time to order a mattress we would have chosen a different one (more firm). The mattress itself is nice and appears durable, just not firm enough for us!

5
Look no further

Having tried the Dreams TheraPur ActiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 mattress in their show room in Catford some months ago I ordered it for delivery by phone. The product is fantastic - comfortable, perfect to our requirements for firmness and accommodates body shapes nicely. On the downside - it was a bit heavy and difficult to move up the stairs - so make sure you ask delivery to where you actually need it.

5
Best mattress ever!

I bought this a few weeks ago and its the best thing I have ever purchased. Ive been in and out of university accommodation and rental properties and have finally settled down in a new house. I needed a mattress that would properly support my back as I have really bad pain. Ive slept on this mattress for a couple of weeks and my pain is decreasing, its amazing! I highly recommend this to anyone!

5
Sweet Dreams

I bought this recently and have not been disappointed. The difference this has made to life is simply amazing. For the first time i am sleeping the way I should, all night and in the right position, my health and also my relationships have increased dramatically. Had i have known about this mattress and its positive effect, i would have purchased sooner. Quite simply all my Dreams have come True

5
Ultra comfortable luxury!

After trying this mattress in store I was convinced that the coolness of the actigel would help me sleep better despite having reservations that the mattress was too soft for me. Since receiving Ive slept like a charm and the lower back pain I was suffering pre-purchase is now going away. The mattress provides support in all the right places and it genuinely helps me get a better nights sleep.

5
Soft and cool

The ActiGel layer at the top makes the mattress that bit softer, it also definitely helps in staying cooler on warmer nights. Only snags I would say is that you need quite tightly fit bedding for it not to crinkle in places above the ActiGel layer and if you have two heavy people on it, you tend to roll slightly into the middle vs that of a memory foam mattress. All in all though, very happy.

5
Simply best mattress ever

Love, love, love our new mattress. Its so comfortable that we cant wait to climb in at night and are reluctant to leave it in the morning. Keeps us cool, no more night sweats. We are using in conjunction with TheraPur protector, Tempur Cloud CoolTouch pillows and stay cool quilt. Quality is outstanding, mattress is very deep and we are enjoying the additional height. Strongly recommend

5
TheraPur actigel arctic 2600 mattress

We were in much need of a new mattress and honestly , I wasnt looking at purchasing anything this expensive when we went to have a look , but we tried laying on it in the shop and . Ohh there was no way I was going to be happy with any other mattress in the shop after that (and we did try some cheaper options while in the shop) and we are extremely happy with our purchase.

5
Lovely comfortable mattress gives me a great night

I was sleeping very poorly on my old mattress always woke up tired and aching all over but since purchasing this wonderful mattress I get a great nights sleep and the aches are gone. It was more than I had intended to spend but I now think that was worth it and the advisor in the shop was knowledgeable, friendly and polite and helped get me to the best product for me.

5
TheraPur Mattress

Absolutely amazing mattress for either the side or back sleeper. This was to replace a 10+ year old mattress and can already feels the benefits in my back and neck! Nice and cool too for my partner whos a hot bod overnight. Make sure you get the tempur mattress protector as Jim recommended to me as it allows the cool through opposed to some cheaper options!

5
Better then expected

I had previously brought a type of mattress my g.p had recommended as I have a bad back & hip, sadly it didn't help & I was desperate. Went into Dreams & ended up being shown this mattress. It has helped so much, it's so comfortable & doesn't put any pressure on my hip when I sleep on my side. The cooler gel is a nice touch too as it's quite soothing too.

5
Cool nights sleep

As soon as we walked through the door the assistant welcomed us and understood my husbands difficulties , he has Parkinsons and dementia She made us both feel comfortable and my husband tested 3 mattresses, needing to keep himself cooler at night Delivery was on time and went very smoothly and he is sleeping better now Thank you Dreams Burnley store

5
Does what it says on the tin

Bought this mattress to replace the same one that had been damaged when our house was flooded. We tried others but came back to this one as it is unbeatable for comfort in this price range. Unlike memory foam, the topper doesnt get hot and the mattress is supportive whatever your sleeping position. Excellent service from the Dreams team in Exeter too.

4
Really satisfied with my purchase

Love this mattress. Supportive but still really comfortable. Great service in store with lots of stock to try out even though I ended up buying online. Only downside was that I bought it in the Sleep Sale and saved 150 (great!) only to see that Dreams then had it as part of another sale a week or so later and another 100 cheaper again (not so great).

5
Perfect

My husband suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and has had trouble with his back and shoulders for years. We went to dreams and tried a lot of mattresses. We bought this one as he was able to lay on his side for the first time in years. We've had it for a month now and is able to sleep without waking in pain. It is supportive but still comfortable.

4
Good all-rounder

I replaced my 10year old mattress (which also cost 1k in its day) with this 3 weeks ago, and am pleased I did. The improvement is not dramatic, but worth having. The firmness I choose was "medium", but the soft top-layer is initially misleading - it felt quite soft in the shop. But after some use, the firmness of the lower sprung-part is clear.

4
TheraPur ActiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 Mattress

Lovely manufacturing and comfortable, mattress feels cool when you touch it without the mattress protector but when sleeping on the bed with the protector it doesn't feel any different to any other, the cool feeling goes which is disappointing this is why we only gave 4 stars, if you want the guarantee you have to use the protector or it's void

5
Great!

I only bought this a couple of weeks ago and its great. A great night sleep, its not too soft but its firm enough to support my back. I have issues with my lower back, so far so good. Definitely would recommend to try this mattress. It is a little on the expensive side but I do think we should spend a little more for a better quality of sleep.

5
Lighting sleeping on a cloud!

We both suffered with back, shoulder and hip issues and this new mattress made a difference overnight. Cant believe how nice it is again to wake up without any stiffness, aches or pains,. Its that good. We were originally attracted by the cool topping as both of us get hot in the night. Does exactly what it says on the tin and more.

3
Not as expected

Bought this after visiting a dreams store. In store it felt super soft and luxurious so bought it without hesitation. We have had it for two weeks now and unless more use will give us this luxurious feel, I have to say we are slightly disappointed. Not an uncomfortable nights sleep but we were so excited at having a blissful sleep

5
Sooooooo Comfortable

This bed is what my wife and I have been looking for - comfortable, sleek and elegant, it fits into our new home and makes the hard work of the day just disappear - I wish we'd found it earlier! Having been looking for something that suits both our needs, this bed did that and all thanks to the sleep analysis machine - great stuff!

5
No more back pain!

I bought this mattress a month ago and I'm very pleased with it. My last mattress was too firm and unyielding and I constantly woke up with an aching back. This medium firm mattress is very comfortable yet provides good support and my back ache has gone. The mattress is also easy to rotate and doesn't have to be turned over.

5
Best nights sleep for years

We went to Dreams store and used mattress bed which gave us four to look at We ended with two that we were referred to and decided on the therapur 2200 Best decision we made after two nights we both slept through till 9 am so comfortable and the guy who sold it to was excellent not pushy just advised on prices and warranty

5
Awesome nights sleep

We are so glad we used the bed matching computer in dreams store ..this mattress was firmer than what we have chosen in the past but wow !!! We have never slept so well and comfortable ... We both used to get back pain but since using the new mattress all our night time aches and pains have gone and we find we sleep better .

5
So so comfy

Bought this for my daughter after a visit to a store and a go on the sleep analysis machine. Great customer service and decided on this mattress. We were lucky as it was on special offer at the time (949 for a double). Im so jealous - so much comfier than my own bed! So much so I came back to get another one for me!!!!

5
Fantastic mattress

I purchased this as shops re opened after lock down . Got a great deal . Staff so so helpful . Iv never had such a good nights sleep . Comfortable all the right support as struggled with my back for years . Words cannot express what a difference this mattress had made in getting a good quality nights sleep thank you dreams

5
Very good

Very good quality mattress. It allows me to fall asleep easily every night. The comfortable mattress makes my waist completely relieved of pressure, which solves the uncomfortable feeling of my waist of course. I am very grateful for the assistance ED ,which made my first experience buying mattresses in the UK very happy

5
Sleeping like a baby

I cannot explain how happy i am with this mattress. It is giving me life anytime im sleeping on it. I have been having backache for the past 6months due to my work but since i got this matress it's as if aometjing took the back pain away. I have been sleeping like a baby. I have recommended for all my driends and family

4
Firm but comfy

Have to admit, after a couple of weeks of sleeping on this mattress I thought I would have to use the guarantee Dreams offer to get a replacement... but I guess theyre right and you need to let the mattress settle as its now very comfortable! Soft gel-top above a medium-firm base now feels like sleeping on a cloud.

5
Comfortable, supportive, and a definite step up

I wanted a firm mattress with a varying support layer to help with my back injuries. This genuinely feels good to sleep on either my back or my side, not putting any undue pressure on my spine. The actigel acts as a good coolant too (something I have found to be a problem with other 'memory foam' style mattresses).

5
Never slept so well

We this mattress and had it delivered around 2 weeks ago. Was great to be able to try out the mattresses before we chose one and the staff were fantastic, helpful but not pushy, left us look round on our own but were on hand to answer any questions. Mattress is fantastic never slept so well in years. 10 out of 10

5
Amazing Health Benefits

Very comfortable mattress. Have found that I fall asleep much easier and sleep through the night without waking. Aches in hips and back nolonger a problem. Have now realised how much difference a good quality mattress can make, and how muchbetter you feel overall, when you are well rested . An excellent purchase

5
Our fantastic new mattress from Dreams

After sleeping on a top of the range Hypnos mattress & needing pain killers every day for a bad back we purchased a new mattress from Dreams the best thing we ever did , no more bad back no more pain killers , the customer service was second to none , thank you Dreams . This is genuine review not auto generated .

5
Therapur Anti gel mattress

Extremely comfortable mattress, very cosy seems to hug you. We have both had a great nights sleep every night since the mattress was delivered.It seems to retain body heat of where we are lying, but the cool gel layer keeps the rest of the mattress cool. No complaints whatsoever. Very pleased with our purchase.

5
Sweet Dreams

10 out of 10 for Dreams. I went in store to see the mattresses and to try the ones that the mattress finder chose for me. I then ordered online and the mattress was delivered a few days later. The delivery men were punctual, polite and I would highly recommend Dreams to anyone looking for a new bed or mattress.

5
Thank you for the best night's sleep.

Our new mattress was worth the long wait for. All through the lockdown restrictions we put up with our old memory foam mattress which had definitely lost its memory! As soon as our local Dreams shop reopened my husband I were in there and purchased our new mattress. What a difference. We love it. Thanks Dreams.

5
Cool, comfortable and stress free

This matress is very comfortable and the cooling top keeps us cool in the hot weather but doesn't feel cold when the weather isn't so nice. Delivery was exactly on time and we were kept up to date about the delivery. There were no surprises and no stress, just a high quality matress and a stress free delivery!

5
Very impressed

Renewed an old mattress originally purchased from dreams with what we thought was a good one purchased elsewhere about a year ago. Experienced joint and back pain hence the decision to revisit dreams and invest in a new one. Boy am I glad we did! Not the cheapest mattress but certainly worth the money so far.

5
Outstanding mattress design!!

Took me a little while to change my body to actually sleep nicely in a proper mattress like this but now I'm used to it, I just can't wait to go to bed! It's extremely comfortable and I don't end up with any back pain as I always sleep on my front and this supports my back so well! Very pleased great product.

3
Much harder than expected

The mattress delivery was very good and easy. The mattress we got was much much harder than the same one in the shop which was a big surprise. Even after 3 weeks sleeping on it, it is still very hard. Not quite what we expected after trying it in the shop. Hopefully it gets softer otherwise we will return it.

5
So comfy

Bought this bed about a month ago as our old mattress was in well need of being changed. Ive been suffering from lower back pain for the last year. Since having the new mattress my back has improved 80%. The gel topper does what it says on the tin and keeps temperature regulated. Such a good nights sleep.

5
Best nights sleep ever!

Received my mattress almost one month ago and so glad we spent that bit extra, was completely worth it! Best nights sleep me and my partner have ever had. I have a lot of back pain and havent once woke up in pain since Ive had it. Its such good quality and feel like a luxury hotel bed. Over the moon! :)

5
Very Comfortable Mattress

The mattress is very comfortable and I would recommend it. My partner was starting to get lower back pain from our old mattress and after only 2 weeks on the new one, the back pain has gone away. Store and delivery staff were also very Knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. I am very happy with the purchase.

5
New mattress

We bought our mattress at the Dreams store at Team Valley, Gateshead. The service we received was excellent. No pressure sales, loads of sensible advise and loved the bed that gave you the pressure points required, helping the sales person to guide us to the mattresses that were appropriate for our needs.

5
A mattress in harmony with a great night's sleep -

After having had our previous mattress, a Sealey Posturepedic, for a little under 8 years it was time for a change. And did we come up with a gem of a mattress in the TheraPur Acti-Gel Harmonic 2200. Superb comfort, giving a great night's sleep and no aches or pains in the morning - so excellent choice.

5
WONDERFUL NIGHTS SLEEP

So pleased with this mattress, we had a memory foam mattress previously and this is hands down so much more comfortable, so much so that when I get in from work I literally cannot wait to go to bed! Really supports every part of your body to ensure a good nights rest. Wish we had made the purchase sooner!

5
Sleep to another level

We've never had such a luxurious mattress before in the 37 years' we've been married. Only in occasional hotels have we experienced such luxury - however briefly. MY wife and I suffer with creaky backs in the morning - but no longer. This mattress was the best investment we've made for a very long time.

5
Sooooo comfortable!!

We had great recommendations in store from Matt and also enjoyed using the test experience to figure out what type of bed we need! We got it relatively quickly, some issues with delivery, but are so happy with the product and customer service in store we received. Would totally recommend this mattress!

5
Like sleeping on a cloud!

Spent ages in store deciding between this mattress and the 800 pocket version. So glad we decided on this one it is so comfortable. You sink into the softness of the topper but then it is firm and supportive underneath. My husband who struggles with insomnia is sleeping much better on this mattress.

5
TheraPur AntiGel Plus Harmonic 2200 Mattress

What an amazing mattress. Best sleep Ive had for a long time. Previously had an very expensive bespoke mattress from another major bed retailer that frankly was such a huge disappointment. The Dreams mattress analyser got it spot on. If youre looking for a very comfortable mattress look no further.

5
Best thing Ive ever bought!

It is like sleeping on a cloud! So soft and comfortable, my partner and I are two completely different sleepers and this suits us both perfectly. The acti gel layer is incredible too, no more need to kick the covers off in the middle of the night for being too hot. I would recommend this to everyone.

5
Excellent!

Worth every penny. Had consistently fantastic sleep since receiving this mattress. Delivery guys were great, the entrance to my road is very narrow so they carried it from the entrance straight to my house, without complaint. All in all and very good experience and very satisfied with the purchase.

5
Pure comfort

I don't believe in miracles, but having suffered from back ache for most of my adult life, I am now pain free. This 'miraculous' transformation coincided with my purchase of this mattress. So, for me this mattress was a perfect choice; i am pain free and sleep soundly. What better recommendation!

5
Aids a perfect night's sleep

I have now had my TheraPur mattress for 3 weeks . I am so very happy with my purchase. It is gentle soft without being overwhelming, I like the thickness of the mattress too, I gives a "grand" feel to the bedroom. The cooling aspect of the mattress works well, perfect for women of a certain age.

5
Firm and supportive but so comfortable

I had originally wanted a different mattress which wasn't available and I was recommended to try this one. It's just what I wanted, firm snd supportive and very comfortable. Coming with a returns policy gives peace of mind, knowing that if it wasn't perfect I could return it without question.

Questions and Answers About The TheraPur ActiGel® Arctic 2600 Mattress

Prospective customers had the following questions about the product

Sorry if this is a daft question, but what is the difference between the zipped and non-zippe' option on the superking size mattress ?. Does that mean that the mattress can be split into 2 single mattresses if it is zipped, but not if it is non-zipped ?.

Answer: The difference between a zipped and non zipped mattress is that one mattress is a whole complete mattress and the other can be joined/separated by a zip.The main purpose for the zip it to allow the mattress to be separated for either allowing ease of maneuvering the mattress into a property or to have the option to split the mattress into separate beds. You will also experience less 'roll-together' on a zipped mattress, meaning you won't feel your partner moving so much in bed.

I have just ordered this from Dreams. I have since read that mattresses with a pillow top do not last that long due to sagging of the top. Im hoping this is not the case with this mattress as it is quite expensive.

Answer: Thank you for reaching out with your question. These pillow top mattresses are built to last. Although in order to extend the lifespan on your mattress and keep it in great shape, then please follow the care advice. For instance this mattress is single sided as such the advice is to rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter. Hope this helps, Dreams.

Is this meant to keep you cool at night and reduce sweating?

Answer: Yes, the TheraPur ActiGel Plus range contains many cooling properties, including layers that absorb your heat when you're warm and releasing it when you're cold. the ActiCool cover contains cooling fibres that wicks away 21% more moisture than traditional mattress fabrics. The open cell structure on this mattress also improves breathability and thermo regulation.

Can I please double check what the guarantee/ warranty is on these mattresses? I have recently been in to store and advised that the warranty is 10 years, however when looking on your website it is stating 1 year. Can you clarify which is correct.

Answer: Thank you for your question. the TheraPur mattresses come with a 1-year guarantee, with the option to purchase for an additional 8-year guarantee. It may have been confused by the colleague with the Tempur mattresses, which offer a 10 year guarantee. Thanks, Dreams.

Can I use an electric under blanket with this mattress

Answer: Electric blankets can be used with all the mattresses however we do not recommend that they are placed directly on the mattress surface. In addition, using an electric blanket may alter the comfort grade of the mattress.

Is there any weight recommendation with this mattress please?I have seen that some other mattresses similar to this are only recommended for people up to 18 stone. Thank you

Answer: This mattress has not been specifically tested for a maximum weight capacity, it has been built based on the average weight of two adults.Many thanksJSDreams

What depth of fitted sheet is advised to fit TheraPur Actigel plus2200 mattress and where to obtain the sheets?

Answer: The mattress depth is 30cm, so you will need a fitted sheet to accommodate this. Most bedding retailers should stock this item.

Do you take the old mattress away?

Answer: Yes, Dreams offer a recycling service for old mattresses. You can purchase this extra at the checkout.

How much does the double mattress weigh?

Answer: Thank you for getting in touch with your question. This double mattress weighs 51 kgs..

What is the weight of the Super King size mattress? I have a Gas Lift Storage Bed frame and want to check if it will work with it.

How many centimeters of acti gel does this have?

Answer: This mattress has 4c of Actigel.
