Becky's Thoughts On The Watson Traditional Spring Mattress

The Watson traditional mattress features an open coil spring system paired with a soft touch damask cover. This pairing is ideal for anyone looking for a feeling of quality while still sticking to a tight budget.

Those familiar with the Dreams product range will remember the ever-popular Taylor open coil mattress. This mattress follows in the footsteps of that mattress adding more filling depth, more comfort and the same handcrafted care and attention to detail as before.

We rate this mattress for the sheer quality to cost ratio here. We would love to see pocket springs featured to offer an additional bit of contouring and support however, you will not get that for this price on a new mattress.

What Makes The Watson Traditional Spring Mattress Great

I bought this bed about a month ago, and it is perfect for me, I do highly recommend it for anyone on a budget but still after a quality product. A few main points: - Lighter than my old mattress, easy to access stuff under the bed, easily held up with just one hand while reaching for things - Very comfortable, I prefer a firmer bed, but this gave a soft touch with a firm feel, great for back or side sleepers (I do a bit of both!) - Saying this, I have had back pain for a few years and this has reduced my pains drastically, I thought it would be just the first few days but my back is improving still! - Again, great value for the quality of the product. Delivery was phenomenal, quick service and delivered to my bedroom. Overall, would give this a 9/10, only because there is always room for improvement, and I imagine if I was to buy a mattress for 5x the price it would be better, but this is DEFINITELY worth the money.

Comfort Grade - Firm

If you find yourself suffering from back pain then you may want to look at an orthopaedic (fancy word for firm) mattress like this one here. Firmer surfaces put less stress on muscles while sleeping which might be exactly what you need to help your back

Rotate Regularly - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

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

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.

Traditional open spring mattress

This is the most common type of mattress and consists of an inter-connected spring system. You will often find this sort of specification on cheaper mattresses where pocket sprung would have often been the preferable choice for a consumer. That said, it offers great value and support, well worth it if you are on a budget

Quality soft-touch damask 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

1 year guarantee

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

Customer Reviews For The Watson Traditional Spring Mattress

Based on 648 review

Excellent value for money mattress

I was kept informed of delivery date and time by email prior to delivery and received a telephone call from the delivery team on the day of delivery. No endless waiting around for delivery, we’ll done Dreams. 2 man delivery done efficiently to the bedroom and all packaging removed. Excellent budget double mattress for our spare room, not that it looks budget, in fact, I was very presently surprised having ordered from the internet without viewing instore. The mattress is supportive without being too hard, looks far more expensive than it was and appears very well made. All family and friends who have stayed report a comfortable nights sleep and having tried it myself I wholeheartedly agree.


Very good value for money

Bought two of these mattresses for new bunk beds bought for grandchildren. Did have to ring Customer Service as although height dimensions given were suitable for bunk beds, on reading questions/answers on the website customers had been told these were not suitable. Good service from C/S who rang a store and asked for confirmation of height dimensions. All good would be suitable. Had to wait a few weeks for delivery, but good communication when due to arrive. Rechecked dimensions when coming off wagon, too deep! Only for driver to realise they’d off loaded wrong mattresses and quickly rectified. Very pleased as bought in sale,great quality and Grandchild extremely happy


Great for bad backs

Have read reviews of this mattress prior to purchase and seeing the 50% off cost i was almost convinced this was too good to be true. Surely you couldnt have a fantastic mattress at such a ridiculous price...... at dreams its possible. Not only was I kept informed not just by email but text also of where and when my mattress would be delivered but the quality of the product itself is brilliant. Back is getting better with each nights sleep, yes it is a hard mattress but its exactly what I needed and I couldnt rate it higher or the dreams team. Excellent experience with an exceptional service and a price that was beyond reasonable. Thank you dreams.


Comfy mattress!

Always wanted to try a dreams mattress but everyone says its just for the name the price is so high, well when the sale went on i thought let me take advantage! And bought one for half the price! Delivery deal was good too and so were the drivers which made it even better because i expect everything about one thing to go good! Anyways, being pregnant, this mattress was just what i needed and dont regret one single penny! Happy customer! Will be soon purchasing a bed once i move into another property and it will ofcourse be from dreams! Hope it helps those who are looking for a mattress go for it (:


Homecoming Comfort........

Bought this mattress as a replacement for our daughters bed as a surprise for when she visits from Uni. We didn’t have a huge budget for it, so we were looking for a mattress that was a good price. She has been home for two weeks and loves it, has said it is super comfy and gives her a good nights sleep. Ordered online which was really quick and easy. The two guys that delivered the mattress were super polite, very friendly and very efficient a credit to the company. Overall couldn’t fault anything, I was very impressed with service and product. A++++++ all the way



As a returning customer I had no hesitation in searching online at Dreams was made very simple found the right product at a reasonable price, opted for delivery and collection of old mattress. after online purchase two days later we receive a large bag for old mattress to be put in ready for the delivery day. I believe we had at least four texts confirming date and approximate time then confirmation regards time on the morning of said delivery day couldn't of asked for better communications. now the mattress was found to be exactly as described, excellent choice.


Incredibly sturdy and comfortable mattress

I purchased this mattress approximately two weeks ago as I was long overdue in updating my mattress as I was starting to wake up with a painful back. I must say that this specific Watson Traditional Spring Mattress is much better than I would have expected. I have had the best couple of nights sleep I have had in many months. It's robust nature combined with the comfortable lining on top is absolutely brilliant especially for such an excellent price. I would highly recommend this product if you are after an affordable yet durable mattress.


single mattress for guest bed

I bought this mattress 3 weeks ago for a guest bed, had a guest sleep on it for 10 days and says very comfortable and got an excellent night sleep. Was lucky enough to buy on offer and found this to be an excellent buy! The service from Dreams was again excellent from ordering felt very well informed of delivery and the delivery men were superb, even taking their shoes off before entering house and kind enough to take upstairs for me, they even thanked me for getting the old mattress wrapped and downstairs waiting for them.


Best night sleep ever!

After waiting 4 months for a bed and messed around by other bed companies I finally had my bed and mattress delivered on June 5th! It’s the most comfortable bed I’ve ever lay on, and was well worth the wait! I was kept up to date with everything that was happening to my bed, I received multiple phone calls regarding the delivery. I just cannot fault the service. Being a front line worker during the current pandemic, the lack of sleep has certainly been made up for since the day of delivery! Thank you Dreams!!


Comfy, is what was described when we looked at it

I bought this 4 weeks ago and It came 10 days later. The packaging was slightly dusty from the van but other than that when the packaging was removed it was great. They even took it into the bedroom while i was as at work. My pregnant girlfriend would be able to move it alone. Thanks. The delivery people did give us a slot and they came before that, which in reality is ace but it meant my girlfriend was out so once she returned home just before the delivery slot, we were able to let the delivery man in


Very comfortable, great value for money.

I bought this mattress last month, (August 2020) and I love it. Very happy with my purchase which was also on offer at the time. So was good for my pockets. Clean, well packaged product. I was also very impressed with Dreams' delivery service. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was available to receive my product on the day. Or if I wanted to swap delivery dates /days. Two gentlemen delivered it, they were very friendly. Great service. I would recommend Dreams to everyone


Really Comfortable Sleep

I have had this Mattress for above a Week now and can honestly say, It is the Best Traditional Sprung Mattress I have ever owned, You get a really comfortable nights rest and wake feeling ready for the day ahead, Although the Delivery was late the Delivery Drivers did ring and apologise that they were running late and they were very pleasant when they arrived and most efficient at removing the old Mattress and replacing it with the New one, A best buy in my opinion.


Comfort at last!!

This mattress is the most comfortable one I've had in many years. I have never needed a lot of sleep but not only am I sleeping better but when awake am more than happy to lie and read in comfort. Always in the past the without something to cover the mattress, (duvet, blanket etc under the bottom sheet), the mattress has felt cold, no problem with this one, the material it's made of generates warmth. Right now all I can say is - I love my bed!!


A sound night's sleep at last!

We have had your mattress just over a week now and are delighted with it, it was delivered during the snow and we did not think they would manage to keep the appontment, but the two young men who came were brilliant! It took them about 10 minutes to walk upstairs with the new mattress and downstairs with the old one in a big plastic bag. They would not even stop for a warm drink. What excellent staff you have-courteous efficient and committed!


Perfect for my requirements

Spent a couple of weeks searching for a good value mattress for a spare bed, which had to be quite slim (about 20 cm or less) and firm. After reading the reviews I bought this and it is very good. Just as firm as I wanted without being uncomfortably so, and in spite of some reviews saying you can feel the bed springs in your back, I didn’t find this to be the case. I’m 11 stone so maybe people heavier than me might find it uncomfortable.


Quick online buy

I was in the process of moving house short on time i ordered online without actually trying the mattress in store and not knowing what i was buying, and with limited funds went for a slightly cheaper option.This mattress is great value for money and nice and firm and comfortable . It came well packaged and was a comfortable weight to turn on my own. Overall extremely pleased and have a restful nights sleep great value for money.


Fantastic service from dreams

Mattress arrived excatly on time. Was fully informed about delivery slots and then updated further with an exact time. Delivery service was brilliant especially with the pandemic. Delivery men carried bed into the property with no problem and placed where instructed. Bed was in superb condition and so well priced compared to competitors. Very impressed. Would 100% order from dreams again after their excellent customer service


Taylor Traditional Matress Excellent !!

I bought this item a few weeks ago and was unsure as buying items online without seeing it in person was a worry! I can honestly say it’s fantastic, excellent quality and luxurious at an affordable price. The guys who delivered it were very professional and took pride in their jobs providing a brilliant service. This was my first purchase through Dreams, of a bed and mattress but from now on I won’t be buying anywhere else.


Amazing value

Bought a couple of months ago now,I was amazed at what good value this was. The delivery experience was second to none. Two chaps arrived ,both were outstandly polite and helpful. One thing to point out,I was concerned that I had ordered a soft mattress,actualy I thought it was quite firm which was great. I would be more than happy to reccomens both the product and the company to anyone. They excell in customer service.


Ideal for my need

I bought this a month ago for my informed and elderly mother. I needed a firm mattress and thinner (lower) than the previous mattress, to prevent her slipping off the side of the bed when sitting on it. She loves the mattress reports a great night sleep and hasn't slipped off the bed since . Great success. Quality good value product and excellent delivery despite the coronavirus crisis. Thank you.


Traditional mattress

I purchased this mattress about a month ago now for our spare bedroom . . We have now had a chance to test it out and we both slept really well. It is very comfortable and ideal for guests to stay. At least we know that they will have a comfortable night. So happy with this purchase and we couldn’t fault the serviceDreams gave. The delivery guys were very cheerful as well and helpful. Thank You.



Needed a new mattress was going to wait after Christmas but seen there was a 50% sale I just can’t grumble saw saw the lovely Taylor spring mattress Read all the reviews and every single one was five stars so I wanted something simple. I’ve had my bed since the 19th of December and it has been a godsend I sleep better at night and my back is a lot better. Now I recommend dreams to all my friends


Excellent soft mattress

I bought this mattress a few weeks ago after suffering with a bad back, me and my partner were both pondering each and every site in search of the best! I’m so glad we came upon this mattress as it was priced at great value and is definitely made to last! The mattress is of fantastic quality, and the customer service both on the phone and face to face was friendly and useful!


Fantastic value quality mattress

Bought this and another mattress while the sale was on, absolutely thrilled with the quality. Beautiful damask covered and very comfortable. Suppose is very good for my back ache. Ordered on Monday, delivered free of charge on Wednesday! Fantastic service. Delivery guys took good care in my home and removed all packaging and took it away. Really pleased with Dreams overall.


Superb Mattress

We bought this mattress last month in addition to your classic divan for our daughters bedroom. With the price being lie we wondered what it would actually be like when it came. I needn’t have worried, the bed & mattress are so comfortable our daughter loves it and she has been having some great nights sleep on it. Well done Dreams, great on price & quality with this product.


Comfortable and great value!

I bought this mattress when I moved into a new apartment and didn't want to spend too much. I'm pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it is for such a good price. The mattress is firm and comfortable. I sleep so well on it that it feels like it has to be more expensive than what I paid for it! Well worth the money indeed. Also very happy with Dream's service and delivery.


Excellent comfort

I bought this mattress in Dreams the store I wanted cheap, no less! no more! Some comfort and a soothing sleep Was all I wanted I'm not Bo-peep. Well sleep I did in comfort too On my Watson mattress it's true! It's true. If a need should soon arise from family, foe or otherwise, I would highly recommend, a Watson mattress to All my friends. Thank you night night....x


Good Nights sleep

Bought this mattress in the sale half price. When it arrived was a bit concerned how low it was, but after a nights sleep on it opinions changed. Amazing! So soft and comfy. Struggle to get a soft mattress all hard. This one just right, moulding to our body each night, so improving even more. Don't know if I would've paid full price for it but well worth amount I paid.


Such good quality!!!

I bought this for my granddaughter's bed after trying out so many various mattresses from other stores and I can't believe how good this one is. The quality is excellent. The store assistants were really helpful and the delivery process was quick and easy. I know how difficult it is to find a mattress that ticks all the boxes so I really do recommend this one. Perfect!


Comfort at its best. Says my 17 year old boy

I bought this mattress online after reading the reviews. My boy wasnt liking his old mattress anymore as it didnt offer any support. The mattress came on time and was promptly put in use. My son said he had for the first time in a while had a good nights sleep. So i a very satisfied with the mattress quality. The cloth is of good quality and the finishing is great.


Amazing Value!

I ordered this mattress about 1 month ago and requested the delivery on a set date! DREAMS were brilliant at keeping my updated each stage of the purchase and delivered within their 2 hour time slot on the selected day! The mattress itself was an absolute bargain and extremely comfy! I would definitely recommend dreams and will be using them in the future!



I chose an expensive one because it is for a guest room, so will hardly get used. However, I am pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it is, and such good quality for the price paid. The delivery man was very helpful, covered his shoes before climbing the stairs, and removed and took away all the packaging. All in all, I cannot fault the product or delivery.


Bought for sons new bed

I cannot find any faults with the product or service received from Dreams. Ordered a single mattress and it was delivered on the day they had promised. My son finds it comfortable so there is no complaints there. This is the 2nd purchase i have had from Dreams but 1st online and they provide quality in all aspects. Will quite happily do business with again.


Cosy and Comfy!

I bought this mattress several weeks ago due to our old mattress that was bought from another site causing us an uncomfortable night’s sleep. We were so excited for this new mattress to come and we were not disappointed! It’s so comfortable and doesn’t cause discomfort at nighttime. No longer waking up with aches and pains so it’s a win win! Thank you dreams!


Great price, Great Quality and fast delivery!

I needed a mattress fast and i was on a budget due to it being christmas, so I was lucky enough to stumble across the dreams website whilst they were having a flash sale. I wasn't expecting much for a budget double mattress, however i was pleasantly surprised. Not only was the mattress delivered within a few days, it was great quality and comfy too!


Comfortable mattress at a comfortable price

We bought this and a frame as a quick fix for a small double which was just too small for us, with the aim that this would be going in to a spare room eventually. It's a very well made and comfy mattress which did not break the bank, excellent value for money. We have both slept solid and are no longer kicking each other out of bed - thanks Dreams!


Nice Firm Mattress

For our guest bedroom, this mattress is perfect. Recently my pops came over to meet the kids and they had a sound sleep on this mattress. I would recommend this for the firm spring support it provides. I would recommend following the manufacturing instructions and turning it once a week for the first 3 months and monthly thereafter ..


So comfortable!

we bought the mattress only for a bedframe we already had. We firstly compare prices online, but didn’t trust that they would be comfortable. When we tried this mattress out at streams we discovered not only that it was very comfortable, but the price was much lower than we anticipated! Couldn’t say enough about how happy we are with it!


Best nights sleep in ever had

Bought this mattress two weeks ago, as tried a few other retailers with poor sleep pattern, I'm disabled with MS and bad back and this mattress gave me my FIRST night ful nightsl sleep in comfort so much I wanted to stay in is the old saying "you've tried the rest - now try the BEST" , i only wish i tried Dreams first. thank you


Great value extreme comfort.

Looking for a mattress for daughters first single. Snapped up a bargain here. Daughter loves it, so comfortable and thick great quality, was informed greatly from purchase to delivery and changed delivery time and date easily .. result of this purchase is no more grumpy toddler sneaking into my bed :) have highly recommended to friends


So comfortable

Our old mattress was really past it, so we ordered this as a replacement. I am so pleased with it and the service from Dreams. It is really comfortable. The men who delivered it put it in place for us, and took away the old one - in a bag supplied by Dreams which was delivered a couple of days before. Would definitely recommend Dreams.



I had been searching for a new mattress for ages and finally found this one from dreams. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and am very pleased with it!! Very comfortable and not too firm. I was also happy with the delivery service provided, together with the collection of my old mattress. All in all A*. Would recommend!!


Comfy Mattress

This single mattress is so comfortable and smooth.  We bought it when it was 50% off sale. Compare to our old mattress which has no firmness in it when you sit down by the bedside; you just sink in right to the bottom. But not this new mattress, it is so comfortable and great to sleep with, not mentioned the bargain price we paid.


Good value mattress

Decided that my 21 year old mattress was too old, so looked around for a new one. This Watson spring mattress has exceeded my expectations. The firmness has provided some of the best nights sleep for a long time. It is well made, and when there were further reductions to its price in the sale, was even better value for money.


Very comfortable

I bought my mattress about 4 weeks ago & find it extremely comfortable. I don't sleep very well but am actually sleeping better since getting it. I did a lot of research online & found this mattress from Dreams to be competitively priced. I read a lot of the reviews & as such made the decision to purchase this mattress


Good value in sale

Bought this in one of the sales, to replace an overly soft and uncomfortable mattress that came new with the bed in the spare room, which is used for when we have family over. Much better and feedback has been positive with good night sleeps reported so far. Also couldn't fault the delivery team; they were excellent.


great mattress great value!

I bought this a month ago and have been so happy, not only were the Dreams delivery team amazing, carried it and the bed up 4 floors they were speedy and efficient and tidy. The mattress is an absolute winner, my son has slept so well its hard to drag him out of bed now! I would definitely buy another one the same.


Very good quality mattress

I purchased this mattress to replace my daughter's old single mattress. It is a lightweight mattress with a good quality damask cover. My daughter says it is very comfy with a nice springiness to it. I bought the mattress whilst on offer so very pleased with the price, excellent service and delivery from Dreams.


Superb Value for Money!

I was really weary how good the mattress would be because the price was so good, but it was within my budget. I was so delighted with the quality, and the quick and professional delivery service too. I couldn't praise Dreams enough! They will definitely be top of my list for my next bed/mattress purchase.


Excellent bed for a young teen.

Wanted a decent bed for my son who was transitioning into his teens and getting rid of his bunk bed. Delivery date and arrangements were perfect for us. The delivery team were prompt, on time , polite and removed their shoes whilst in my home!!! Bed is incredibly soft and sturdy. Son absolutely loves it.


Great night sleep!

I bought two of this mattress without actually going into store. As I had only a few hours left of the offer they had on. They are great both my children 9+11 love them, very comfortable, affordable. Even I enjoy laying on them as they support your back with a nice cushion soft layer. Thank you dreams.


Perfect purchase

I bought the mattress last month and it’s been a dream since. It’s so comfortable, great support and the best night sleep I’ve had in along time. The delivery people were very helpful and handled the transition with care (during COVID). So pleased to have used the service from start to finish.


Really comfy, quality bed at a great price!

We bought the bed for a spare bedroom and had our first guest stay over last night who said imthey loved it and had a really comfortable sleep. It fits perfectly in our room and really pleased with it - thank you. Great delivery communication and bang on time. Just what you wish for as a customer.


Dream of a mattress!!

I needed a new mattress, dreams had the best deals at the time and have a very good reputation so an easy decision to make, bed arrived on time, bag to put my old mattress arrived quickly so whole experience was easy, customer service was also very efficient and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.



Bought for my 9 year old daughter who since lockdown has loved to try and sleep in my bed because she says it's more comfortable than her bed. I bought this mattress as it sounded similar to mine. We are now both happy as she says it feels like she's sleeping in my bed whist staying in her own lol.


Comfy mattress - great value for price

Second time buying from this company and satisfied both times. The mattress is exactly as described, which is perfect considering I get back pain if I do not sleep on the right surface. Despite being a mattress on a budget (there are fancier, more expensive options), this is not a cheap one!



I recently bought this mattress it is comfortable and great for my back and excellent value for the price. the service from Dreams is very good I will keep going back to dreams as their service is fantastic and the delivery men are very good they put the mattress in the room where you need it


Great value for the money

Bought this for my elderly but independent Mum, she is very pleased with the quality and comfort, it it also easy to turn round as recommended and she can do this with ease herself, the gentlemen who delivered it were kind and thoughtful, very pleased with service and the product, thankyou.


Perfect mattress

I have fibromyalgia and needed a decent mattress. This does the job, great if you have anykind of muscle/Skeletal conditon/s. I opted for a firm mattress and it is indeed very comfortable. Go ahead and buy this great value and not problems with overheating that you get from foam mattress.


Amazing comfort

When i was buying a mattress i didn't have a huge budget so it wasn't top of the range however i was very surprised and delighted to find that even if your getting a pretty standard mattress dreams have the best quality for your sleep, i haven't been this comfy in my sleep in a long time


Soooooo comfy!

I sleep on my front which has recently started to give me a bad back. After reading reviews online I decided to purchase this firm mattress. I am so glad I did! I no longer suffer with back ache and actually enjoy a full nights sleep. The mattress is lovely and soft. Highly recommend.


Perfect for the top bunk

Great mattress with quality springs and soft satin lining. It’s just the right depth for the top of the bunk bed. I was conscious that it’s thinner than the other mattresses and would be uncomfortable but my 8 year old is very happy to sleep on it and finds it super comfortable.


A lovely bed for my 4 year old

This mattress is comfortable to sleep on. I am very happy with the overall quality and look of the mattress and my son loves it. Delivery was 10/10. The delivery man took his shoes off before entering my home and dropped the mattress off to our desired bedroom. I could be happier!


Very surprised

I had bought this mattress due to the low cost, i received it by the very well mannered delivery men and then when I placed it on my sons bed he said that he loved it,very comfortable and I would recommend highly for anyone that doesn't want to pay high prices or has a low budget.


Very comfortable

Bought this for my 4 year old nephew. He is a very restless sleeper but seems more settled on this mattress. I tried It out one night and found It firm, supportive and comfortable. A very good purchase and, being in the sale at the time, it was at a great price. I recommend this.


Very comfortable

I brought a single matress for my son a month ago, the matress is well worth the price and very comfortable, we are very happy with this purchase, we also Have brought a king size matress which arrives on the 15th July and we can’t wait to finally have a comfortable night sleep



I bought this few weeks ago an I was at first dubious about online ordering as it was my first mattress purchased this way but wow how wrong could I be what a absolutely awesome an comfortable mattress I haven’t slept so well definitely will be buying another one eventually



Brought this mattress as my old one was awful I was slightly sceptical as it was firm and I love a soft mattress but it was the best thing I have ever done my back feels incredible not a single ache or pain when I wake up ...i now love going to bed again so thank you dreams


Great mattress and great nights sleep

Brought this because we’ve had a very well known memory foam mattress and found as we are getting older it’s become very uncomfortable after a nights sleep on our joints.this sprung mattress gives slightly with the body creating less pressure and a comfortable nights sleep


Dino raft

Got this for our son who is 5 and says it’s the best dinosaur raft he’s tested yet... survived the white water rafters and easily fits in dinosaur adventurer back pack no problem apparently. Great for trampoline and a very happy little boy who’s getting some quality sleep.


Lovely and comfortable

We bought two of these mattresses for the kids (5 and 9) about a month ago and we’re really pleased with them. They’re good quality and value for money (got them on half price offer). I slept on it with my 5 yo and it was very comfortable. Would definitely recommend.



I bought this mattress for my son who constantly complained about back ache in the mornings, I looked on line and came across Dreams all problems dealt with one click my order dealt with quickly, old mattress collected and no more back ache for my son you are stars.


Deightfully comfortable

My new Taylor matress was delivered promptly. I used the matress immediately and was delighted with the comfort and gentle give of this medium style matress. Since then, I have used the matress nightly and found that I can enjoy a good night of uniterupted sleep.


Comfy mattress

I bought this mattress because there was a sale on and it was a really good deal. It’s a really comfy mattress, had thick plastic packaging over it to ensure it wouldn’t get dirty or damaged during transit which I was also happy with. Nothing to fault so far :)


Amazing sleep

I’ve bought the mattress along with the pillows about three weeks ago and I’ve never been happier to just throw myself in the bed. Normally I take quite a long time to fall asleep but given the fact that the mattress is perfect i just fall asleep immediately.


Very comfortable

Had this mattress for a few weeks now i would highly recommend it very comfortable to sleep on bought for my 17 year son he says he’s had the best night sleep since I got it the mattress was on sale when I bought it but would happily of paid full price for it


Life - Lasting Comfort

I bought the mattress a few months ago, not only was it a good price but it fulfilled my comfort needs. It is soft, bouncy and most of all comfortable. I look forward to sleeping in my bed every day because of this mattress. Love it! Definitely recommend it!



I bought this about a month ago and after having heart attack found old mattress was not giving ma a good nights sleep went to dreams bought new bed and decided that this mattress was ideal lovely and firm and no sagging what it is to get a good nights sleep


Excellent Value

I purchased this mattress in the Sale for a bed in our spare room. My guests commented how comfortable it was and had a perfect nights sleep. Excellent purchase and to save money by buying it in the sale was a bonus. Also the service from DREAMS was 100%.


Brilliant bed

I have tried for some many years to get a comfortable bed. And now I have found the perfect one. The mattress is just right. Don't have a bad word to say about the bed. Delivery was on time and was always kept up to date with timing of driver turning up too


Extremely comfortable

I bought this product a week ago, and i cannot describe how much better my nights sleep have been getting, before i stuffed with such a bad back and since purchasing the Taylor mattress i've seen no end of improvement, and i am very happy with investment.


We got this mattress again because it's so good!

We bought the first mattress a year ago, and really liked it. So we decided to get a second matching one to put in the guest room. Great quality, great value. Amazing customer service from the delivery team, very on time and polite. 10/10 would recommend.


Super comfy

I bought this in the sale a few weeks ago and was really pleased because I also got student discount on top! This mattress was amazing value for money as it’s so comfortable, I would’ve even paid full price for it! Delivery service was also fantastic!!


Superb slumber

bought a new mattress for the little lads room as he required one and obviously I had to test it out when it arrived and and I made his bed up. It was so comfy in fact its that comfy my little lad now sleeps throughout the night without any waking up.


Comfy mattress for a good nights sleep

I needed a new matress and chose this from Dreams. It was delivered during my allotted time slot and my old mattress was taken away. Usually It takes me a while to get used to sleeping on a new mattress, but I had no trouble falling asleep on this one.


Great firm mattress withe the value for money.

This mattress really good value for money, cos if you want to buy a firm single mattress you couldn't find anywhere for this price. The design for delivery was really convenient, just loosen it on the bed frame for 3 hours rest and that's it. Amazing.


Great mattress & worth buying

I need a cheap firm double mattress before my room is decorated. The Watson mattress appeared the cheap one with the firmness I required. It is firm and value for money for your purchased. Definitely recommended if you need a firm and cheap mattress!


So comfortable

I am very pleased with this mattress. It fits my bed perfectly and the springiness is just right allowing me to feel supported but not too hard. The depth is ideal for me as I have a mobility problem and it is the right depth for me to sit easily.


A lovely comfy mattress!

I bought two of these mattresses for my children to replace their old mattresses. I was so impressed when they arrived. They are extremely comfortable, plush and sleep inducing. The children fall asleep very quickly and wake up lovely and relaxed.


Perfect for the kids!

We bought two of these a month ago for our kids and not only are they affordable but the kids love them! Delivery was on time, the driver called us in the morning then called us 15 minutes before he turned up.. great mattress and great service!


Great Mattress.

From ordering to delivery, my whole experience with Dreams was efficient and enjoyable. We purchased this mattress in single size and firm, and it's brilliant. Its such good quality and comfortable. It's firm, but not hard. Can highly recommend.


Great Mattress

Bought this mattress as a replacement for my daughters bed as here extremely expensive memory foam mattress began to sag in the middle! This mattress has sorted out her sore back and she is happy getting a decent night's sleep when she visits.


Good value

I bought this to go on a single bed downstairs as I'd just come out of hospital and couldn't climb stairs. It's a good solid,mthough soft mattress. Will be buying another for my upstairs bed when I can get upstairs again. Real value for money.


Amazing service comfy mattress!

I brought the mattress around 3 weeks ago when moving. We did not realise how much we needed a new mattress until we got one!! Slept like an baby ever since! Dream delivery guys were helpful and friendly, couldn't have asked for anything more.


Great customer service. Recommended

Happy with the product. Initially ordered the wrong mattress. Got order cancelled via web chat (no questions asked as to why and not trying me not to cancel), and re-ordered the correct size. Quick delivery. Overall smooth order. Recommended


Great value mattress

Bought this mattress for our son and he said how really comfortable it was and as a 19 year who loves to lay in without complaining this is a thumbs up for us. Hopefully time will tell how good it is long term but so far so good. Thank you


Relaxing night sleep!

I bought this mattress two weeks ago and have had great night sleeps since I have moved into my new house. Exactly what I needed. All for a great price and reliable and efficient delivery service! Would definitely buy again. Thanks!!


Good quality and very comfortable

I bought this for my kids, they both are happy. Good price good quality and excellent delivery choice. Both persons were very friendly and helpful, left the mattresses in the right rooms for me. Good experience would defiantly recommend


Great value

We purchased this mattress in the sale so did get it at a good value, but for a spare bedroom matress it is perfect. My Mum stayed with us for 2 weeks at Christmas and said she hasn't slept so well in ages so that's a win in my books!



Amazing value for money the quality and comfort is out of this world I've had the best nights sleep in 2 years also the delivery drivers put the mattress were I wanted it I will be recommending dreams for the rest of my life thankyou

Questions and Answers About Watson Traditional Spring Mattress

I was in the store and checked the label says it is soft not medium ???? confused 

Answer: , We have recently re-classified our comfort ratings in order to provide a more accurate description of the firmness of each of our mattresses. The Taylor Mattress is classified as a medium firmness mattress. I can confirm that the display model in store is the same as what would be delivered to you, the label is just showing the old firmness rating rather than the new updated one. We apologise if we have caused any inconvenience here. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information. Kind Regards, Dreams
