Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible product. Save your money! This mattress is awful. You can feel every single spring. Most uncomfortable. Unfortunately I will be throwing it away and purchasing a new mattress from else where. 15 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value for money The mattress is very good value for money, it lives up to expectations of - suitable for occasional use or for one person. Don't know if it would be good enough for 2 people with constant use , but it is as advertised , so yes very happy with it . 21 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Service Not really going to use it, apart from dressing a bed. And needed it urgently. Service fantastic. arrived within 24 hours. 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Very happy with my purchase. This mattress is good quality and comfortable. I thought I might be taking a risk getting a mattress so cheap, but it is just fine. I have a great nights sleep. Long term you may want to upgrade to something more luxurious, but if you need to furnish a room quickly and can't spend a lot, you can't go past this mattress. 29 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not buy I've purchased plenty of JL branded products over the years and haven't been disappointed. This is the exception! Extremely poor quality - the springs can be felt coming through after just a short while of use. Save your pennies for something else - like us you'll need to replace this low quality item pretty quickly. jL's customer response to our complaint was also pretty dire. Appsrently the mattresses isn't designed to last three months of use. A definite ' don't buy'. I'm surprised JL is happy to sell such a badly designed, poor quality product that will quickly find it's way to adding to landfill. 28 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by OK for first month Received as it was dirty but told should have checked before signing for on delivery. It was to big to move about and check in the hallway. Great nights sleep for a month now even my five year old says he can feel the springs and he is light for his age. Told at the shop these are only for guest beds and we need pocket sprung. Who can afford those these days from John lewis.I wish I had just keep the silent night one I had skipped. I thought John lewis would be just as good brand. I may as well of used eBay 16 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Brilliant! I am overall very impressed with this product! It was cheap, but the price didn't reflect the quality. It is ever so comfy, and when I have had family members stay they have all commented on how comfy is is (While I've been stuck spending the night on a lumpy sofa!) I would definitely purchase this again for my spare room, and I have already recommended it to friends and family. 04 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value This mattress is really good value for money and more comfortable than the price reflects. Very happy with it. 30 July 2014
