Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 72 reviewers.
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
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy this mattress I bought this mattress marginally over a year ago in February 2014. As a slim, fit and healthy person in my twenties, I regret ever buying this product. I have found the quality of the mattress to be appalling. The springs are so pronounced that they are painful and my sleeping is disrupted significantly as a result. Whilst it would be reasonable to expect some degree of discomfort for the price, it is my view that this mattress is not fit for purpose. In my experience it is not conducive to a healthy night's sleep and it is certainly not suitable for daily use. If you plan to use this mattress for anything other than very infrequent use in a spare room I would vehemently advise you to avoid this mattress and purchase something else. I expected much more from a John Lewis product and consider the standard of this mattress to be very disappointing. 27 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bed of nails Not sure why springs are used in this budget mattress as after two months and numerous turnings its akin to sleeping on a bed of nails, which spring digging into oneself even with a topper 12 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value Fine for occasional use but worth spending more for daily use. Very good value. 05 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Budget price but quality product Bought this double mattress for my 15 year old daughters bed, but so impressed with quality, will probably purchase a king size one for my bed. I fell asleep on it & it was so comfortable. Delivery was super quick & on time. It seems better quality than my well known branded one which was 3 times the price 5 years ago, would definately recommend product. 27 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for price This is a budget mattress but is surprisingly comfortable. 11 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dangerous product There is a metal spike sticking out of the mattress. It is dangerous. 30 September 2014
