The Turner Traditional Spring Open Coil Mattress from the Dreams Workshop Collection is one of the most popular to date, amassing a huge following with close to 1500 reviews and an incredible 97% consumer satisfaction from verified purchasers.
For those unfamiliar with the brand, The Dreams Workshop operates out of the company's factory in Oldbury, West Midlands which employs 150+ expert craftsmen who construct this model and others like it using traditional techniques by hand.
First unveiled back in 2018, the Turner Traditional Spring Mattress contains house glass shaped Bonnell springs. These are a more cost effective alternative to pocket springs and allow the product to be sold at a far more affordable price for those looking for a bargain.
The Turner is an upgrade to a previous bestseller from The Dreams Workshop known as the Halliday. The Halliday was a previous award winner that we really enjoyed that is much the same as the Turner, albeit with slightly less comfort materials.
What’s Inside the Holman Pocket Sprung Mattress?
The Turner Traditional Spring is a firm mattress with an open coil base layer that will offer a good amount of tension and support, allowing for a comfortable experience. Remember, tension and support does not mean the same as comfort and so a firm mattress can also be a comfortable one that also proves beneficial to those looking for additional neck and back support.
Onto the comfort layer and you get impressive and deep layers of luxurious and deep fillings. These fillings prove to be both breathable and comforting providing an adequate platform for your body and one which will stand the test of time for years to come.
This mattress is also single sided, meaning no flipping is required and you can rest easy with a gentle rotation every now and again to prolong settlement and ensure your mattress lasts for the typical 7 year life-cycle pegged for mattresses across the industry.
What do customers think about it?
Feedback for this particular model is very good, not only do you have the 97% consumer satisfaction but those who have commented discuss the sheer value for money that you get with this product, with others commenting on its comfortable top layer and great quality base layer pairing. For the money, it will prove difficult to beat what is on offer with the Turner Mattress from The Dreams Workshop.
There are a few negative reviews, particularly around the tension and the discomfort that a firm brings to those that are not expecting as such however, there is a solution. The Dreams Workshop is part of a close collaboration with Dreams and as such is part of its 40 night comfort guarantee and so if you don't love it, replace it with minimal inconvenience and only a small collection and re-delivery fee.
Sizing is a bit of an odd one when it comes to this particular product as we don’t seem to have available the popular super king size while instead having availability of the much rarer small single and small double size options. Those with larger bedrooms who like to starfish and spread out may be left looking at other options while those with a smaller size room will be delighted with the size options available.
Moving onto availability and this is one of the more readily-available options in the lineup with delivery expected within 10 days. Other retailers may consider this slow, however, Dreams has always had a fairly sizable lead time and in actuality, this product becomes one of the earliest and easiest to obtain in a short time period.
Onto the mattress guarantee and we’ve always been fairly unhappy with the traditional 1 year guarantees offered by manufacturers and retailers but with this model and others from The Dreams Workshop range, we’re seeing the option to extend to an incredible 8 years of bed cover with an optional service plan. When you consider the average mattress is replaced within 7 years it does help highlight the level of quality and confidence the retailer has in their product.
Reasons to Buy
One of the cheapest mattresses available through the popular retailer Dreams.
Traditional spring support layers are a great middle-ground for those looking for the perfect compromise between comfort and support.
Firmer tension should go some way toward preventing back pain for many who suffer.
Reasons to Avoid
Single sided mattresses have the benefit of not needing to be flipped but do result in slightly poorer durability over a long period of time.
1 year guarantee is typically long enough for any uncommon issues to raise their head, also reasonable given the price.
