Not really a huge saving over competition. But still cheaper I guess so good find...

I'd rather have more pockets 1000 isn't enough :)


Some poor customer reviews for this company
Looks like a good price
A wise man (possibly Ruskin) once said "It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do."

In my experience buying a cheap mattress is likely to be the BIGGEST FALSE ECONOMY you might ever make. Like some others on this thread I have bought some absolute crappy mattresses in my time, believing them to be good value. They have typically lasted 2 years (or less) before having to be thrown away - which is not only a waste of money but which I also think is completely immoral from an environmental perspective.

I would strongly urge everyone to research a mattress purchase thoroughly and spend as much as you can afford (within reason!). You spend about 1/3rd of your life in bed and how well you sleep affects pretty much every other aspect of your life. Trying to get a mattress for <£200 will typically be an absolute waste of time, effort and money and is completely disproportionate to the impact it'll have on your life. It absolutely astounds me that people will spend £300-£500 on a phone, which they'll typically discard after 1 or 2 years and yet think spending similar sums on a mattress is a waste of money.

Most of the cheap mattresses are made by a few companies and are typically of shocking quality. If you buy carefully and avoid the high street names then decent quality pocket sprung mattresses start at about £250 for a single or about £350 for a double. You can get a LOT more for your money by spending even a little bit more than this threshold (and you should not spend less!!). You only have to lift a mattress to tell whether it is any good. A decent single mattress will be hard for an adult to lift because it'll have more springs, heavier gauge wires in the springs, heavier grades of better quality padding and more of it. It'll just be made MUCH better than most things you'll buy from the big names.

In general you should avoid memory foam in a discount mattress at all costs! It wears out quickly and you may find it uncomfortable quite quickly. If you like the comfort/heat of memory foam then buy a decent mattress and a memory foam topper. When you get fed up with the memory foam you can discard the topper and you'll still have a good mattress.

I've recently bought some Millbrook mattresses which are very well made, very comfortable and which I expect to last at least 10 years. The singles were 2000 spring and the king was 3000 (those counts, like all mattresses, are for the king size in each range). By buying carefully I got the singles for about £270 and the king for about £650. I'm a 6' guy and reasonably strong - I struggle to lift the singles and can barely turn the king by myself.

I've reserved voting on this deal. This IS a good price for this Silentnight mattress, but I've had so many shocking experiences with Silentnight group products over the last 10 years that I'm reluctant to ever buy from them again. They are the masters of selling crap mattresses.

A very good on-line resource is Factory Beds Direct. If you spend some time reading the various articles on their site you will begin to get a feel for what you need to be looking for. The following is a link to their site and to an article summarising who's who in mattress manufacturing (including all the names that Silentnight group trade under) - http://www.factory-beds-direct.co.uk/who-owns-what-mattress-brand
