Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bed We bought this as my back was hurting all the time due to our soft mattress we had. This has been a really supportive and firm mattress. Great purchase. Looks and feels great. Excellent quality. 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A sturdy mattress We chose this mattress for body-moulding support and, though still early days, it seems to be doing the job. Be aware that it needs to be turned over regularly until "settled" and needs two people to do the job. Or so we found! Value for money as John lewis products are. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable mattress Both my wife and I have been sleeping better since we acquired this mattress. Delivered on time and delivery team very helpful. 21 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent mattress Delivery perfectly on time and really cheerful delivery crew. Mattress is Sooo comfortable!!! 04 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not firm at all I was looking for a firm supportive mattress, this was not it. So soft I woke up with the worst backache I have ever had the second night of using it. All credit to John Lewis who have taken it back and I am on a quest to find one MUCH firmer. 04 April 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by GOOD QUALITY BUT VERY HARD Bought this mattress as I wanted a firm mattress. In the store it seemed perfect but after 6 months of use, I have been waking up with severe shoulder and hip pain as it is just too hard. Bought a John lewis mattress topper which has helped to some degree, but do wish I had bought something slightly softer now. If you sleep on your back, this mattress is probably fine and it does seem very well made, but I would not recommend for side sleepers as there is not enough give. 16 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely excellent Having spent a considerable period of time researching mattresses on the JL site as I have severe osteoarthritis and it's vital to have the right bed, I am delighted with my choice of this mattress. It is very firm thus providing excellent support whilst also being very comfortable. The delivery men kindly alerted me with a 'phone call half an hour before their arrival to let me know they were on their way and they then went above & beyond my expectations and were really helpful and efficient which was greatly appreciated as I am disabled. 10 out of 10 both for the product and the delivery service. 02 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superbly comfortable mattress. I am very happy indeed with this superb mattress. Very comfortable from the first night. It has a soft layer but is supported by a very firm construction. If you are looking for a comfortable yet firm well made mattress this is it. British made in Buckinghamshire and of good quality. It had a faint odour when unpacked due to the natural products it contains, which quickly dispersed when aired. The order and delivery process were spot on too. Friendly, helpful and professional delivery men. This is not a cheap mattress, but I believe its cost is reflected in the quality and comfort it gives. My only minor criticism is that the information on the JL website is not as comprehensive as that contained in a brochure picked up in store. The website describes mattresses as firm or medium, whereas the brochure is more specific with medium, medium firm, firm, extra firm and sumptuously firm. I initially bought the Ortho 1400 described as extra firm, but found it too hard and uncomfortable. I then exchanged it for the Ortho 1600 described as sumptuously firm, which accurately describes it 03 February 2013
