My wife and I have been mattress/bed hunting all week and thought we'd cracked it yesterday. However, having got home to do our research it seems that despite spending a lot of money you don't seem to be guaranteed durability and longevity.

We have been to Dreams, Bensons,
DFS and the reason for this is that you can lie on them in the showroom. A lot of smaller independents don't have the floor space to do so

Therefore I'm asking for your recommendations on mattresses or shops to help us. We have liked gel models in the shop but apparently they smell after a few uses and develop a hump in the middle reasonably quickly after purchase.

Thank you!

Budget around 800-1000.

Hi, after going to the big brand shops we chose a really nice 'myers' bed we liked- it was around £850 pocket sprung with a top layer of memory.
We were told by salesman that that model was exclusive to that shop ... and we definitely cannot buy anywhere else etc, etc..
Lots of research when I cam home and I found the 'exact same' bed called a different name on another site and was over £300 cheaper.

So alot of these beds are the exact same model, but sold under other model names in various places.
This is so the shop can say its 'exclusive model' and you obviously have less or no chance of finding and compring prices elsewhere of the same thing.

Ozzi, we recently went through the same process, went to IKEA, tried several mattresses & love the one we've bought, pocket spring one as well, with a 25 year guarantee. IKEA say that if you decide that you don't like the mattress you bought within 90 days, you can bring it back for a refund.

Awaiting delivery of Slumberland Dreamweaver from Dreams.
My Dad used to buy beds for a major retailer. He knew his stuff. That was quite a long time ago now and bed/mattress technology has moved on. Few manufacturers still make divan bases with a spring edge. My dad swore by them, otherwise its just a box that provides nothing. His choice of mattress was Dunlopillo - don't know whether they still exist - pure foam - but after that he went for pocket-sprung. In his day things like memory foam and gel did not exist and those we have tried we did not like. Remember the memory foam/gel is only on one side. Thyey say you do not need to turn mattresses these days and that may well be true - but I wonder is it because they are no good when they are turned.
So I reckoned. older style would suit us fine for another 8 years.
If you do go for 1 from Dreams, I suggest you pull out of the purchase in the showroom last minute saying you will buy on-line from their website. You save 39,95 delivery charge that way - of course they well then waive that charge - they might not - but you get the same bed in the same timeframe. They charge to to take your old mattress away but give you a lovely green bag to put it in - something you will not get if you buy on-line.

Thanks for the advice so far, appreciate the time put in for your responses.

I'm sure the big John Lewis stores have mattresses on display for you to try. Also Tempur have stores and I'm sure Harvey's have a display section.

The only beds I have been happy with have been bought online from happy beds - either through their website or Amazon. They are manufactured at Bedmaster, which is a local place I have been to. The beds are made really well and are a fraction of the price you would pay at somewhere like Dreams and use good quality fillings and fabrics - not all this polyester rubbish. I have the Silver 1400 and the Signature 2000 pillow top. Personally I prefer the 1400 as it is softer. I bought base and headboard and happy with the quality and colour/fabric options.

We have a JYSK one, it's the Gold one, best mattress we have ever had and we both have bad backs. Tried it in store after having a few online ones.

A good memory foam mattress, with cool top cover.

I went through the same thing a month ago
Purchased a solid memory foam and thought i'd crack it,but the other half didn't like the firmness
So got a 2000 pocket sprung memory foam which is a little more spongy
got them from memory foam warehouse online they come like a carpet
the now spare one is on eBay if anyone need a good firm mattress at a very reasonable price

The bed industry is the worst out there no where else can you not easily compare two products in one store, mattresses sold by one company will be available slightly differently in another even by the same manufacturer. Warranty is not worth the paper it's written on. My suggestion would be to find. A good independent one that has lots of floor space we are lucky in our area we have two massive ones try them out and then ask for a discount for cash often works. Or if you are lucky to find one that is sold under the same name online check the return policy you might have to pay for returns but you have rights to return.

Try an eve mattress you get 100 nights trial to test it out, if you don't like it they pick it up and refund full cost. They get very good reviews

We have just come back from a cottage and on all the beds they used Hypnos mattresses and it's the most comfortable one I have ever slept on

Go spend a night in a Premier Inn and if you like their Hypnos mattress you can buy one off PI's site. Lots of people swear by them.

Just bought one from John Lewis as they have lots in store to try

Someone doesn't seem to like anybody's comments on here as they have all been voted down by one... oO

I have an Ergoflex memory foam mattress - it's been the best I've had so far in 17 years in this country, and I think it should last longer too, had it for two years so far with no issues - no turning like with sprung mattresses.

Although I think the Tempur one my ex had was slightly more comfortable I don't think it was worth spending the extra money.

I second this. had my ergoflex around 9yrs, and its still excellent.

There was a thread about them,but as I recall I'm sure it was said they aren't the exact same spec as the ones in PI as I loved the one I slept on there.
