Hello good people of HUKD, I need some suggestions please. I have some family visiting us soon and our guest room mattress is extremely uncomfortable. You can feel the hard metal springs while laying down. I can't afford a good mattress right now. Can a mattress topper help? If yes,it works then please advise me on where to get one(cheap) and ideally how thick should it be?

A good mattress topper will probably still let the springs through. What is your budget and what size mattress?
#2
Ideally below 100£ and a double sized mattress
#3
look at the mattress from Ikea, think they are around £100 for their sultan one.
#4
What about flipping it?
#5
Below £100 you will not get anything worthwhile unless second hand. Try Gumtree.

Yeah or hire a bouncy castle (_;)
#7
give your guests your bed and bear the painful mattress during their visit?
#8
Get rid of the mattress and get a blow up air bed mattress. Put it on top of the bed base. It will be fine for a few days for guests. I've been sleeping like this for weeks since my old proper mattress died. It's really comfy :)

I had the same problem with my mattress as you have op
I was on a budget as well and bought this from Amazon

At £69 it's cheap and surprisingly comfortable according to my daughter who has been sleeping on it for about 1 month.
It comes rolled up but springs back into shape quickly.
I left it for around a week as it has a strong chemical smell initially but has totally faded away now.

we bought our mattresses from Amazonactually. they are fine for a year max, then start giving issues. this one is not too bad for the pocket though

you could pay for a mattress which offer test periods and then return it once your guests go home.
#18
b&m have good ones.
#19
We used a topper on an old uncomfortable mattress in a caravan. Think it was 5cm thick and it did the job well.

Plus a cheap topper.

Not bad on its own a little firm at first, but for a guest bed it's great for the money.

If you know anyone with a student account you get 15% off on top and as it's one Amazon prime next day delivery.
#21
£100 won't get you want you are looking for. A very good mattress topper will help, but not totally resolve.

Try this. I've bought them for my children at Uni. They are squishy like marshmallows and make a very standard Uni halls mattress feel a bit normal.

Go to a local independent seller (owns a small furniture shop or if you can, find a warehouse where they sell and dispatch them)

They'll be able to sort you a good price for a basic double bed or even memory foam. Don't hesitate to haggle either X)

Luckily for me I deliver parcels to about 4 different bed companies so I can easily get a discount for myself

One of the companies I deliver to is called Durest Beds (they're on eBay). I recently got one of their memory foam mattress 12" thick double and it's great! They use DPD so if you were to come across them, you'll be able to get it next Day delivery too

Another company is called Sleep Kings in Ossett, nice decent people in there but unsure if their prices

Hope this can help :D

Best idea if you only have £100. They are good, we use one on a sofa bed for visitors.
#24
thanks a lot everyone, really really appreciate your help :)
#25
buy a memory foam top layer? They are really comfortable but I am uncertain if expensive. You can buy them off ebay.
#26
Look on Gumtree, loads of manufacturers selling ones in there for £100 plus delivery,
#27

we got one for our dog from ebay. they cut it to size and you can order different depth. honestly it is so comfortable, i sometimes want to sleep on the dog's bed. lol.

that's one lucky dog you have got :)

we bought it for our last dog as he had arthritis and so my husband bought the memory foam to help with the arthritis pain. it wasn't that expensive, something like £40, and actually works out better value than a dog mattress that you can buy in the pet shop for £20, which does not last as long. the memory foam has lasted a while and is just as comfortable now as when it was new.

the dog loves it and waits for it to be moved around when we move to different rooms as he wants his bed brought with him. lol X)
