What Makes It Great

I hate giving bad reviews but I am doing this so that if you have the same problem as me, no one can make you feel like a freak and tell you they’ve never heard of anyone before. This mattress is supposed to be medium but it takes a long time to bed in (this is why you have to persevere for 30 days). When it first arrived it felt like sleeping on a cold, damp brick for both of us .... and it smelt awful. It seems, though, that I am allergic to this bed. Normally able to sleep anywhere I was awake and in pain after two hours. The areas of my body that were in contact with the bed were on fire, with a sore bruised burning pain. I persevered and found that I woke every two hours. By the third night I couldn’t sleep at all and was also getting breathless. Every night the symptoms seemed to get worse. Customer care said that this never happens and that I had to keep sleeping in it. As I was working, I slept in another bed during the week and had no problems. The lingering pain gradually went away. At the weekend I tried again. We had aired, turned and jumped on the bed. My husband has continued to sleep in it and said it was getting more comfortable, which I could feel when I first got in. However after a few hours sleep I was awake again and by Monday morning was tearful, sore all over and unable to function. Going into the store has enabled them to agree to change the mattress under the comfort guarantee but it will be another month before it is delivered and we can sleep in the same bed again. I don’t know what I would do if my children weren’t at university.

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

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.

1 year guarantee is typical for the industry. This means you are guaranteed to have a trouble free experience for the first year or have your product replaced

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

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

Ensure that every single part of your body is moulded to your mattress by going for one with 3200 springs, all perfectly aligned and adjusting to every movement you make

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

Questions and Answers

Can you use a mattress protector with this bed? If so which is best so you still get the benefits of the cooling gel.

Answer: We would recommend using a mattress protector as this will help to keep your new mattress clean and hygienic, helping to prolong its life. In our range of mattress protectors we offer a TheraPur Cool mattress protector, this is faced with 100% cotton for natural breathability and is filled with unique Quadfill fibres which are both breathable and encourage temperature regulation. As a result, this will help keep the cooling benefits of the gel. Kind Regards, Dreams


Answer: Electric blankets can be used with all our 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 depending on the mattress type. We also recommend following all guidelines and instructions specified by the manufacturer of your electric blanket. Kind Regards, Dreams

How much does this mattress weigh in kg?

Answer: Good morning, Please find the weights for each size below: Single - 28kg Small Double - 36kg Double - 43kg King - 48kg Super King - 57kg Super King Zip & Link - 57kg Kind regards Dreams

Hi. Do you need a specific sheet to cover this large mattress? As our standard one only really covers the top layer and a quarter of the big part of the mattress. Or does the big part usually just remain on show?

Answer: The depth of this mattress is 32cm so we would recommend using a fitted sheet that is as deep as this in order to cover and protect the whole mattress. Kind Regards, Dreams

I just dont want to get up in the mornings!

We bought this mattress just over two weeks ago and,although we tried it instore we both agree that this is way beyond our expectations. the mattress provides just the right amount of support for two people who both suffer with back problems and yet is without doubt the most all round comfortable bed that we have ever slept on. we have spent a lot of money inn the past on mattresses that have promised to provide the best sleep ever, but then failed to deliver. This mattress however does exactly what is sets out to do;it provides comfort in spadeloads and all the support that we need. I have always been an early riser, but i can say that for the first time i really do not want to get up in the mornings.

Looks grand

I bought this product out of six types recommended by the dreams machine and also with a stores representative personal point of view. Within 17 days the gel topper dipped in the middle, the mattress was turned 3 times as per recommendation. The dipping did not improve so we went back to the store. They organised a home serve representative to call who deemed the gel top was faulty. We have chosen a different model for a replacement. The dreams staff at the Bedfordshire Retail Unit you could not fault, the matter was professionally dealt with by Tilly, thank you. It was unfortunate this mattress incurred a fault.

It’s comfortable

Had this 3 months now, mattress is comfortable, however, a ‘ridge’ in the middle where we don’t sleep. My main issue has been finding a fitted sheet large enough to fit a superking, gave up and got a flat sheet, mattress cover (therapur) does not fit well (not big enough despite being the correct size and you get horribly creased sheets underneath you. I do not find this a ‘cool’ mattress as it is described to be, additionally it is so heavy it’s near impossible to get the sheet tightly fitting, overall an absolute pain as the sheet needs refitting every day. The sheet issue affects the comfort of the mattress.

If you want to sleep like a baby - get this!

We bought this mattress 3 weeks ago and it is definitely worth the investment! My partner usually has trouble sleeping and doesn't get much deep sleep in, but this mattress has changed everything. As for myself, I generally sleep well, but I no longer have occasional aches in my body/neck due to sleeping in the wrong pose. Apart from this mattress being super comfy, the top layer of cooling gel adjusts to your body and helps you snooze throughout the whole night without waking up. The only negative - it is hard to get out of bed because it's so comfy!

Really comfy bed

We bought this bed to help me be able to sleep as I've struggled for years now. We aired it for a few hours to get rid of the smell as advised. The bed took a few days to soften, but then it was like sleeping on air! It is so comfy. I actually have to start properly sleeping which is amazing! We choose the igel as my husband gets really hot in the night and he's finding it good, but I can still feel the heat from coming him so not sure how good that is, but the comfort of the bed is great! I totally recommend!!


We bought this mattress thinking it would solve my issues with pressure points when sleeping and morning backpain but after about a week we noticed where we had been sleeping on the mattress it was leaving a permanent impression of our bodies and had started loosing its soft feeling even though we turned it weekly as instructed . After 30 days it was so uncomfortable we went back to the store and exchanged it. Only came with 1 year guarantee which explains a lot about the mattress.


No-one that I know has ever spent more than a couple of hundred pounds on a mattress and I was embarrassed by spending over 1K on mine. The embarrassment has now changed to an overbearing smugness, this is the best money I have ever spent. My backache is slowly disappearing and I'm sleeping better than I have slept in a long, long time. I would rather give up my husband than this mattress (actually I'd rather give up my husband than the much cheaper pillow)! Love, love, love it!

Seeking comfort?!

Have You ever been to a hotel and thought that mattress was amazing?! Well we wanted that feeling every time we got into bed at home, and so far this mattress is giving it! We’ve only had it two weeks so I guess time will tell of it’s real quality, but so far so great! My only advice would be to make sure you have deep fitted sheets, we had to go buy some, and it is quite a heavy thing to rotate every week. So far very worth it!

So comfy, great value and a great nights sleep.

We purchased this roughly 3 weeks ago now and it is hands down the best mattress we have ever bought. After spending numerous hours testing different ones with varying values we are so pleased with this one. Not the cheapest but also not the most expensive but it has certainly aided in getting a much better nights sleep. Coupled with great service it has been a thoroughly enjoyable purchase.

Sturdy yet comfortable

I received this mattress just over 2 weeks ago and so far my sleep has improved massively. It’s easy to turn the mattress even with limited space for one person due to the handles on the sides. It’s a dream to get into bed on a night and I’m hoping we have many more nights of good sleep and for someone who struggles to sleep very much at all this mattress has been a godsend!

comfortable but i was expecting to sleep better.

had this mattress for a few weeks, its comfortable but not as good as I thought it would be, perhaps it takes longer to settle in to it. I also had to purchase extra deep sheets but they still come untucked because I am a restless sleeper. unfortunately at least once a night I have to get out and tighten the sheet as it gets hooked on the top part.

As comfortable as I expected

I had my new mattress delivered just over two weeks ago. Straight away I noticed the improvement on my old one. It provides the support I require without being too firm. I believe the high number of springs makes a great difference. The ActiGel Plus makes it very comfortable. I'm very pleased I chose this mattress and the value for money it offers.

Great quality & value for money

I bought the bed and frame a month ago, although I had a major problem with the delivery service, the products themselves are exceptional, two thirds of your life is spent in bed so why should you go cheap and buy rubbish quality goods. Dreams beds are fantastic!! Highly recommend, but once purchased you must call immediately to confirm delivery.

Soft but very supportive

I bought this a month ago and have now ‘broken’ the mattress in, it is really soft and squishy but i feel well supported and don’t feel like I'm inside the mattress unlike memory foam mattresses. It has a nice hotel feel to it. The only problem is the mattress is quite thick so it is hard to get my fitted sheets on but i get there in the end.

Ultimate comfort

We purchased this bed a month ago after deliberating about the price. It was more than we wanted to pay but worth every penny. I suffer with arthritis and it has been a long time since I have been so comfortable. I wake up some mornings and I have not moved as opposed to tossing and turning most nights. I would highly recommend this bed.

Very comfortable and supporting. Great price too.

My partner had back problems and i had neck and shoulder problems and we needed a better mattress. We got recommended a number of mattresses but this was out choice balancing comfort and price. The results.....comfortable nights sleep and no pain anymore. I was sceptical but this really did help. Very pleased.

Wonderfully comfortable

This mattress was chosen for us by the Dreams computer testing bed. It’s spot on for . Best mattress we have ever had and great nights’ sleep have been had. Will be buying another one for another room. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and in this case I think you get a lot in terms of comfort and structure.

ActiGel feature is great!

This mattress is extremely comfy. The ActiGel layer really works and keeps the temperature nice and cool. Its very supportive but not too firm. It is very deep so you have to use flat sheets rather than fitted which tend to move about but overall I am very happy with the purchase.

Helen's mattress

I purchased this mattress at the beginning of Sept. 2019. went in looking for something reasonably priced and comfortable. after looking around for something to meet my needs, I came across this. the price was more than I wanted to pay but it was worth it. excellent mattress.

Just as comfy as I remember

I bought this mattress a few weeks ago and still love waking up on it. It feels like a hotel mattress making getting out of bed in the morning very difficult. No longer waking up with aches and pains. Though expensive I think it is worth it. Hope the quality lasts over time.

Best purchase I have ever made!

This mattress is so comfortable. We tested it out lots of times as it is expensive but it was definitely worth investing. The cooling top is great and it is soft enough for a relaxing sleep but not so soft that you end up sinking.

Brilliant mattress

I bought this over a month ago and it’s been great, with my old mattress I woke up every day with a sore back but not happened since purchasing this one. The only one thing I would say is the cool part doesn’t stay cool for long.

Good quality medium/firm mattress

Had this about two weeks now and I must admit it took some getting used to. The pillow top was strange at first, felt like sleeping on blankets but very comfortable when we got used to it. I would say it is on the firmer side.

Great product

Have had this for 3 weeks and I'm very pleased - comfortable from the very first night. The smell of the gel takes a while to dissipate but airing the room as much as possible has made it bearable. Would definitely recommend.

So comfortable, love it!

I bought this a few weeks ago, and it's been so comfortable. It's on the softer side of medium, but once the pillow top settles it's a delight. It's very deep, so i reccommend buying deeper fit fitted sheets. So far, so good!

The perfect mattress

Everything from beginning to end in buying our mattress has gone perfectly. Tom at Burton was outstanding at talking ya through options without being too salesy! And the mattress is great! Haven’t slept better in years!

Absolutely incredible!!!

I bought this mattress about a month ago after having a cheapy one before. We tested it in the shop but ordered online. It is absolutely incredible, I have the best nights sleep on this mattress. 110% worth the money!


I broke my back and pelvis a year ago and have struggled to have a comfortable night since. However things have changed since buying this mattress and going to bed is no longer a dread, it is comfortable and restful

Can’t wait to get into bed.

Took delivery of this new mattress a couple of weeks ago. We now can’t wait to get into bed it’s so comfy. No more back pain in the morning, we wake up refreshed and ready to take on whatever the day throws at us.

Very average.

Although at first in the shop this seemed like a great buy and better than other mattresses, although after w couple week it’s hard to tell the difference between my old one and this new one... do not recommend.

Best mattress we’ve ever owned

We visited the store looking for a bed frame only but came out with a brand new mattress after trying this one out. My husband gets hot during the night so the cool technology is very handy and it’s super comfy!


We bought this mattress in September. It is extremely comfortable. We are very happy with it. The only negative is it is very heavy. You could not move or lift it to put sheets on or turn around on your own.


I am very happy with the product. The service was excellent provided by Amira at Dreams Staples corner. She gave us the best suited options for the both of us and now we are sleeping comfortably every night.

Best mattress

It is literally the best mattress we ever had. It is soft and firm at the same time. The delivery was very good, the gents that came were nice and took the mattress upstairs for us. Good service overall.

The BEST Mattress

I bought this a month ago and i'm so so happy that I did.The ActiGel layer helps keep me cool as me and my boyfriend boy do we usually sweat when we sleep but NO not now. So comfortable sleep like a baby.


Supposed to be a cool mattress but once you put a protector and decent quality sheet on, it doesn't feel that way, probably should have just gone with a standard mattress, otherwise it's comfortable

Indentation in mattress after 5 days

Was hoping for better comfort from this premium mattress. Could see the indentation of where we had layed after a few days. Would expect a mattress of this quality to regain its original shape.

Most amazing mattress

We bought this mattress after experiencing a lot of back pain on our previous one. Instantly, you feel comfortable, cool (because of the cooling agents) and relaxed. Honestly the best mattress!

Marvellous mattress

I work away a lot and stay in the worlds top class 5 star hotels, but after just over a month sleeping on my new dreams mattress I can honestly say it out classes anything I’ve slept in before.

Perfect match

We decide to buy this one after careful consideration I used to have back ache every other day but now that is old history I found my match, firm support but soft and comfortable. I LOVE IT.

Perfect if you want a great night sleep!

I've now had this for about 3 weeks and I have been getting the best night's sleep I've had - ever! It's brilliantly supportive, but the soft layer on top makes it mould perfectly.

Amazing Sleep

This mattress was delivered 2 weeks ago, we have both slept well with no hip ache, once you get in to bed it doesn't take long to fall asleep! This mattress keep us cool at night.


Really enjoyed our visit to Dreams in Lincoln. I was sceptical but we were looked after brilliantly by Elaine. The mattress is excellent and the service the same. Well done!

What a great Mattress

As we get older we needed a softer mattress than the memory foam one we had. This is fantastic. No more stiffness and aches in the morning and having great nights sleep!

Really comfortable and suits my back issues

After trying the scanner at the Dreams store it gave me a choice of mattresses to suit my body and my back issues. I’ve finally managed to have a decent nights sleep

Best nights sleep!

Bought this mattress 2 weeks ago, nothing but comfort since. Before I would always toss and turn no I have such a lovely deep sleep and feel fresh when I wake up.


This new bed has helped my back and I look forward to getting into bed. Snug and warm. Hasn't helped with my insomnia but at least I’m comfortable whilst awake!

Great mattress

Me and my husband are so happy with this mattress, it is what we were looking for. Price is a downside, but it is worth, if you want have deep and cosy sleep.

Terrible smell

I had this mattress delivered 3 days ago and are unable to sleep on it due to the smell it is giving off, which is now starting to linger around the house.

Fab mattress

We bought this mattress a month ago and it was a great purchase, it is very comfortable and we find it a lot cooler than our previous memory foam mattress.

Comfy soft mattress

Only had for 2 weeks so bit early to judge. Feels soft and comfortable. Slight sagging where we lie which I assume is normal for this type of mattress

Lovely and comfy

Mattress was super comfortable straight away which is unusual. The bed is much cooler for sleeping, unlike our old mattress. Brilliant purchase.

The perfect mattress

Number one mattress ??

Currently brought the therapur actively plus response 3200 and iv had and keep having the best night sleep I’ve ever had in 30 years.

Give it a chance to 'break in'

Was sceptical the first week and was harder than I remember but give it a chance and you'll forget the days you dread going to bed!

Comfort at last!

Having had to be a carer for quite some time, I had been "camping out" with no proper bed, now I have space - comfort - and sleep!

New mattress

Only had the mattress 3 weeks and the jury is still out! Seems to sag a little but might just be softer than my previous mattress

Excellent Mattress
