Becky's Thoughts On The TheraPur ActiGel Response 2000 Mattress

Today we're looking at the ActiGel Response 2000 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.

If you're suffering from aching back pains, Therapur ActiGel Response 2000 Mattress could be for you. The mattress features 1683 pocket springs and a comfort grade of Very Firm. The exclusive ActiGel zoned and profiled foam offers comfort and support, while the soft touch knitted cover proves to be both breathable and resilient, helping you keep cool for many years to come. Made in the UK, this mattress is hypoallergenic, has a 1-year guarantee, and comes with free delivery.

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. 


What Makes The TheraPur ActiGel Response 2000 Mattress Great?


This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

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.

Soft touch knitted cover

Soft touch covers are commonplace in the mattress industry. These covers are still hard wearing enough to last the lifetime of the product but soft enough to the touch to still be comfortable even with the thinnest of sheets on top

Exclusive 2cm ActiGel zoned and profiled foam

This is a unique support layer unique to Dreams that helps to provide a soft and durable layer with fel-like properties that mould to your shape

Comfort Grade - Very Firm

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

1-year guarantee

A 1 year guarantee is expected and standard for the industry. If anything goes wrong with your product within that period you are able to get help and support and ensure that you are not left out of pocket on any repair of replacement.

About TheraPur

With UK based manufacturing, each Therapur mattress is handcrafted within the UK.


Customer Reviews For The TheraPur ActiGel Response 2000 Mattress

Based on 111 review

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.


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 ;)


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.


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


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.


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. It’s definitely worth the extra pennies.


So good I’ve 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!


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


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 haven’t slept so well for as long as I can remember. Thank you Dreams! We will see you for our second mattress purchase very soon



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.


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.


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.


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 I’m very impressed with the ease of it all and the quality. Thank you! No more bad backs for me, nice and firm!


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


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.


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 I’ll be happy with this mattress for years to come.


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


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


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


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!


5 star comfort

We have had a Tempur mattress in the past but this is more supportive and comfortable. Also when you move around it doesn't rock the other person. It is the best mattress we have had, no aches or pains, I sleep immediately and feel refreshed in the morning.


Much Better Sleep

We have had our new mattress for a little over two weeks now and it has had a significant impact on my sleeping. I regularly had a sore back when using my old, softer mattress but now I hardly feel anything. Massive difference to my nights sleep.


Very nice mattress....

Got this mattress nearly a month back. It has significantly improved the sleep. Although we spent nearly 1/3rd of our life sleeping, but does not focus investing in our sleep. I did very late, but very happy with it. I wish I had done it earlier.


Excellent, super comfy!

Only had it a few days but it’s soooo comfy, definitely worth the price! The dreams staff were really friendly and helpful when we were choosing our new mattress, the deal clincher was hearing Stacey Shipman help pick how firm we needed! :-)


Dream mattress

Great shopping experience, Covid has made shopping harder but we were made to feel assured that our safety was important. We had the chance to try the different mattresses and weren't rushed. The staff were helpful without being intrusive.


Excellent mattress

This product was one of our options after using the machine in store to narrow down what mattress would suit us best. The mattress is described as very firm. However, I don’t think it is we are over the moon with it. Sooo comfortable.


Can ask for a better mattress money well spent

Great customer help great delivery mattress does what it says supports your back and your hips definitely give it a thumbs up I sleep so much better now and I'm back free of pain strongly recommend this mattress to family and friends


Very comfortable!

The Response 2000 provides excellent support with the soft cover, allowing for a great night’s sleep. The ActiGel layer helps with keeping you cool throughout the night, all year round, meaning you wake up feeling fully refreshed.


Thera pure actigel. Awesome mattress

What a fantastic mattress not only is it comfortable it’s also cooling I can honestly say I’ve never slept so well , I suffer with sleep apnea and my partner has said how much better I am during the night since we brought it .


Stops you getting too hot

The actigel does keep you nice and cool despite the layer of foam on top of the springs. I am very impressed as my main aim in getting a new mattress was to stop getting hot as I did with my old memory foam mattress.


A great nights sleep

Both my husband and I suffered with terrible backache and leg ache on our old mattress since we’ve had this new mattress we’ve woke up every morning with not one ache or pain. It’s great to feel refreshed every day.


Extremely comfy!!

I bought this a month ago as needed a new mattress went to a store to find the perfect one and this was so comfy when tried it out just had to purchase it not regretted the best nights sleep on it ever!!


Worth every Penny

What a difference this has made to me. I sleep so much better and don't wake up with back pain as I did with my old mattress. Best decision I have made was to go for a Dreams TheraPur Mattress.


The best matress

The mattress is comfortable and I have a restful sleep withiut getting too hot or cold. I would recommend Dreams when buying either a bed or matress. They also give you great customer service.


Best investment we have made

After having many cheaper mattresses we decided to take the plunge with this one, wish we had done it years ago. Reduced back pain and no more waking up being too hot/cold, perfect for us


Very firm as write up stated

I chose this matress from customer reviews and I'm very pleased with my purchase it took a couple of weeks to get used to very firm set up but I'm very pleased i chose this mattress.


Absolutely Amazing

I purchased this mattress along with a bed frame less than a month ago, I’ve gone from waking up all stiff and aching to well rested and energised. Definitely recommend this mattress


All Good!

Very pleased with this mattress, firm but not too hard and very comfortable. Also, the buying experience was good, from the helpful store staff to the efficient delivery team.


Wonderful mattress

A really wonderful extra firm mattress of excellent quality. The gel top layer helps to keep our temperatures steady and is very comfortable. Really happy with the purchase.


Great mattress - just one issue

This is a great mattress! But, the only issue we have now is that we have a lift up storage type bed, and the mattress is too heavy now to be able to operate it on my own.


Best night sleep

Had this mattress two weeks now and not had a bad night sleep, very firm but comfortable, good for you back, like this so much went back to buy the pillows, very happy.


A dream

After taking the mattress test and trying numerous mattress, i have finally settled on this one. It is very firm, just want i need but with a nice soft top layer.


New bed from Dreams.

The bed was delivered by two very helpful chaps who were both courteous and helpful. I would like to stay in bed all day due to the lovely comfortable mattress.


So Comfortable

We recently purchased this mattress to replace our old one. So pleased we did, the ActiGel Response keeps me cool during the night. Such a comfortable mattress.


Relaxing sleep

Great mattress, found this after trying multiple mattresses. Was suffering from backache before and this has helped a lot and have a really good sleep now

Amazing mattress!

Such a comfortable mattress. As a sufferer of a bad back, I haven't slept so well in years. Fantastic service from start to finish. Highly recommend!


Therapur mattress

Firm but very comfortable mattress

This is a very firm bed, but comfortable. Good for your back. Can’t say we’ve really noticed the cooling gel effect. But overall a lovely mattress


Super solid, like it firm helps with back issues

I love it but after having it about 3/4 weeks, have noticed an indent where we lay. Not sure it should be like this and if it will last 8/10 years
