Anyone got or tried a kaymed or Breasley Salus bed? Or memory foam plus springs bed?

I need a new bed and have to decide between two, one is made by Kaymed and one is made by Breasley Salus.
They are memory foam and sprung mattress divans and both around the £1,000 mark, a major investment, so I was wondering if anyone has either of these and has any advice, recommendations, info etc.
I know it'll be personal choice as to which people prefer but I'm still interested in people's opinions.
Also interested in if they get hot.
Thanks!

I have a Kaymed which is pocket-sprung with memory foam on top. It was a little over £1 as a divan.

I don't have issues with temperature at all, it's really comfortable and was worth every penny IMO.

Can't comment on the other brand, sorry.

we bought a Sealey one for about half that and is very comfortable

Thanks you for that, can I be nosey and ask where you got it from, was it £1k for a double, is the bed very high (I tried one and it was really high off the ground!), does it have a cotton-type or furry teddy-bear type of mattress enclosure material? Also, what type of firmness/which style did you go for?
Sorry for all the questions, I have been spending ages umm-ing and ahhh-ing about which bed to get and want to make sure I get it right but the problem is I can only try out a Kaymed bed very similar to the one I would be ordering, not the exact one, and the salespeople are obviously telling me everything I want to hear but these are the questions I'd find really helpful to get some real-life experience from.

Thanks, I haven't tried out a Sealy as there weren't any in the 4 different bed stores I went to visit, I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to order a bed without trying it out first, I might give the next town along a call and see if they have any, but I am pretty taken with the Kaymed and Salus ones, but rubbish at making decisions especially when they are so expensive!

The bed we got was a king size and it was around £1100 from memory. It is pretty high, but that's because the mattress is very thick due to the layer of memory foam, and the base is pretty thick too - it is seriously heavy as well, but is a no turn mattress thankfully. The cover on the mattress is pretty plush in texture.

I'd say ours is medium/firm, it has a good blend of support whilst being very 'huggable' for want of a better word! We got it from Archers Sleep Centre.

Their prices are negotiable, so make them an offer or ask them to throw in a mattress cover & pillows - I'd recommend the viscose filled ones.

No offence to the other poster, but comparing a Sealy to the Kaymed in terms of quality, is a bit like comparing a Focus to a Merc.

One final word - I'd say if you do go for it, make sure you have large bed sheets due to the thickness.

That's brilliant, I spoke to one company who for an extra £100 can get a Kaymed made where the base is lower than the standard ones which I'm tempted with but I also want to get drawers in the base and that's another £100 as well eeek! Yeah, I was going to do some haggling and thanks for reminding me I'll need new deep sheets, I might see if they can throw some in for free as well as haggling down the price.
Sadly no Archer's sleep centre near here, but Dreams sell Kaymed under the name Inner Wisdom (and wack on £600 for the pleasure for equivalent Kaymed! They are the same manufacturer and product just different packaging according to the man at Dreams).
I was concerned that the Teddy Bear/furry type mattress cover material would be insulating and warm but pleased you say you don't have heat issues.
I think I'm sold on Kaymed, for the price it's a better brand and probably will last longer but I did find the Salus a smidge more comfy, oh decisions decisions!!
Thanks for all your help and advice, they do seem like really good quality beds.

I move so much in my sleep I'd end up falling on the floor every single day. Plus the sloshing and drunken feeling just doesn't do it for me and my cat would probably pierce it and end up flooding the house lol.

I have a Kaymed Gel Therapy - has Gel as well as visco. By far the best bed I have ever slept on. We had a Sealy before hand but my wife never liked it but absolutely loves this one. Have seen the Salus and couple of stores told me that the mattresses are not as good quality as Kaymed. Agree with the guy who said it was like comparing a Merc and Ford (or something like that). If my bed is anything to go by, you will not be disappointed.

By the way - my bed has the 'teddy bear' fabric and it is lovely! No heat issue at all.

Thanks for that, I still haven't got round to making my mind up, but I am swaying towards the kaymed. I heard the gel therapy ones are cooler and massage you, I found the one I tried quite hard/dense and think I prefer the memory foam and sprung kaymed. Where did you buy yours from? Did you try out lots beforehand? Thanks for your help.

Sorry for not replying sooner! Gel bed has softened and after 3 years is still great! Not cheap but you get what you pay for. I bought mine from Alan Wards in Chester - great service. We tried all sorts and didn't come across anything we both liked as much. Performance has been spot on and feels as good as when we forst bought it. Of you haven't got one by now, should get a deal in sales. By the way, my mate bought a bed on the web and had issues with it and retailer wouldn't come out to see the problem - eventually got sorted but said he'd never buy on the web again! Ok if all goes well but when it goes wrong you can't get them to sort!

Thanks, I still haven't bought it, funds have been really tight and I would rather wait and save up for the perfect bed than just buy one for the sake of it now and regret it.
Yeah, need to think about web buying, but the annoying thing is I don't have a showroom of the one I *think* I want near me.
I'm not sure about the gel - I like the idea of it being cooler, however I'm not very heavy and found it quite dense/heavy/hard.
I should probably try and decide before the VAT rise in January!

We bought a Salus memory foam mattress just under a year ago. Not only did the zip that holds the topper onto the main mattress break within weeks (meaning the topper slides about in the night) but I'd also warn anyone who suffers from nightsweats to avoid memory foam completely, as it doesn't breathe like sprung divans. Having said that, I no longer get the shoulder and back aches I used to get with my previous mattress, so it's swings and roundabouts.
