Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with our purchase Prompt delivery and my daughter is very happy with her new comfy mattress. 22 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by One year on ... ready for throwing out It's over a year that I've had this mattress and it is ready for throwing out. There is no way you can get a good night's sleep as the springs dig into your back. Really disappointing. 20 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great mattress Fantastic mattress. Light weight but very supportive. Great value. 09 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by more comfortable than our last mattress the mattress is good but does what it says for the price - we are using it as an every day bed so turning it often is necessary - on the whole i would say it is a good buy 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased! I bought a Basics Double mattress from John Lewis having extensively researched the product from other sources. As usual the service I received was second to none and we are very pleased with the mattress.Good quality, well made and comfortable, I would happily recommend this. 05 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible purchase I purchased this mattress in February. I read the reviews and trusted the fame of John Lewis some of the customers claimed. However, the product is fairly poor quality. 1) Back pain for over a month until my body got used to it. 2) You can feel the springs just by touching the surface. 3) Two or three of the springs are now sticking out after 3 months of daily use. 4) Customer service does not look after really unsatisfied customers. I am terribly dissapointed and I am not a fussy person. This is the first time ever I buy a mattress and since I was so exited I threw away the plastic which covered the mattress to which Jonh Lewis Customer Service repliedI could not return the mattress. Fair enough! But here I am suffering the consequences of this awful purchase. The overall experience is bad. When I have friends sleeping over they ALL comment on how terrible my mattress is to which I have to look down and say` it is a new 100 pounds mattress´. I can not just but think, if this is a 99,00 pounds mattress and it is terribly uncomfortable, how bad a 49´00 mattress from Jonh Lewis must be? Good luck with your mattress purchase. 03 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good John Lewis Quality Matress Good comfortable Matress, I always think you know what your going to get when you buy from John Lewis and it didn't disappoint, great value for money also! 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value for money I have had this for a month or so now, so still early days and it is used as my spare guest bed, but so far all who have slept in it say it is comfortable, that coupled with the price mean it excllent value for money. 03 March 2015
