Post up an update in 7 years time

I have a slumberland mattress which looks identical to this, and which cost me a heck of a lot more money in 2007, so much so that I just had to look at the label on my mattress to see whether it is the same mattress or not.

Loooking at the photos now it looks exactly the same mattress except for a silentnight label as opposed to a slumberland label - makes me wonder.

I only mention it as, if it is the same mattress, I have had the king version since, oddly enough, this week in December 2007. It is now 10 years old and was fine up until this year when it has just began to collapse. A couple of the springs suddenly went and when I made a slit in the mattress to see what was going on the me,ory foam was crumbling and appears to have been breaking up into pieces for some time. Very odd. I am a single person who sleeps on one side of the bed, and who rotates the mattress 90 degrees every month so that I am sleeping on alternating sides, so, whilst 10 years is good enough, it is a king that has not been used by a couple - if you see what I mean.

Quite uncanny how identical this silentnight looks to my slumberland. I am going to be thinking about this all day.

I doubt that I would buy an expensive mattress again as I don't really think that there is that much better quality in them nor longevity re the price you pay - as @SackCity says above, there is an argument to buy a cheaper mattress and change it more frequently. I am not convinced that the memory foam in these mattresses has much longevity.

If this is indeed the same mattress as I have currently then, for the price, I probably would buy it but have a mindset of using it for 3 to 5 years and replacing. But, IIIRC, I paid 3 times as much, during a so-called sale, for this with a slumberland name on and swore that I would not pay that again for a memory foam mattress - they don't tell you that the memory foam crumbles or breakes up into pieces.

Anyway, I thought that I would share.


One last point - most of the reviews on the Amazon page for this mattress are for the pocket spring version and not for the memory foam version. Just saying.

Well they say you should buy cheaper mattresses and change them more frequently.

Thanks - this looks to be a good deal. Ordered.

Been looking for a new mattress. Ordered.

Have had this for a few months and is great for the price

Just bought a Simba king for £500
Seems great, time will tell.

For anyone looking for a double, is the price of £216.99 a good price? Sold and dispatched by amazon.

Be careful if you have never had a memory foam mattress, we couldn't get use to it, was very hot, not in a good way either! Sent it back

I've found that when staying in some hotels and friends house which use them, but not if the memory foam is called Cool blue of similar.

Had one of these memory ones before but can’t remember what it was like

Am I missing something but could someone explain to be the difference in the 2 options available.
There is pocket sprung or memory foam. I thought that the mattress was pocket sprung with a memory foam layer, a hybrid type of mattress.
Also, could anyone tell me the name or description of the Slumberland equivalent that has been mentioned?
Thank you in advance.

They are totally different beds slumberland is a competitor to silentnight.
Silentnight own the following -
Rest Assured
Sealy (if I remeber correctly is under licence)
Layezee
Pocket sprung bed company
They used to own around 30 companies in the furniture industry but these were sold off-shut down or put under one roof and the names kept for trading purposes.

As a group we produce over 500,000 beds every year, with over 100 years of bed-making heritage behind us. Our portfolio includes Silentnight - the UK’s leading manufacturer of beds - and Sealy Posturepedic, who sell a bed every 3 minutes worldwide. Our Rest Assured brand sources the finest in natural materials for truly luxurious comfort and we’ve recently introduced Studio by Silientnight - a brand for the style-conscious which allows customers to design the bed they love in 4 easy steps. For yet more contemporary comfort head over to Layezee, while the Pocket Spring Bed Company completes our list of house brands.

If you want durability, then you have to pay for latex over memory foam. 10 years from memory foam before it became unusable is pretty good.

Re price to quality with mattresses, you either need to do a lot of research, or buy top whack from a brand like Savoir who will tell you exactly what is in the mattress. The likes of Silentnight and Airsprung are selling the same cheaply constructed mattresses at different price points at a variety of retailers, all under different names, so they'll never provide the info that would allow consumers to compare.

The best place to start for research is the Factory Beds Direct / John Ryan by Design information pages, which explain the basics of mattress construction, material densities, how the big mattress companies work etc.

For the £750 you paid, you should be able to get a decent latex mattress, or a well made pocket sprung model with a good density of materials, including some natural.

If it's just a single person using the bed, and of average weight, then I think you can assemble something pretty comfortable from a relatively cheap pocket sprung mattress (£300) with a separate good topper (£70).

I was just curious as to whether these bed manufacturers are having their beds made in generic factories, perhaps in the Far East, and simply diifferent labelling / branding stuck on them?

As long as its sold by amazon their customer service is amazing. If its faulty they will refund. Sometimes they dont ask you to send the item back.

Yet again ..... This item does not ship to UK - Northern Ireland.

whatever you buy , dont buy a Miracoil !!!!!

Great spot. Thanks for this. I have had the double size non memory version for the last few years, but have just sold that and need a new king size mattress. I was about to order this from somewhere else so this is perfect timing!
