Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT MATTRESS FOR SPARE ROOM Urgently required King size mattress due to family visiting. Firstly very prompt delivery and helpful delivery men. Mattress is very comfortable and a good night's sleep was enjoyed by our visitors. Excellent value for money. 06 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This mattress is the best I have ever bought. This mattress is the best I have ever bought even though it cost me the least. It is really comfortable. 18 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great budget option Having just moved into a much larger house, I have needed to furnish some spare bedrooms quickly with on a budget. I was initially sceptical about the low price, but have been pleasantly surprised by the product. I wouldn't necessarily want it for daily use but it is absolutely fine for a guest bed and surprisingly firm and comfortable. 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent value Mattress is firm, looks good and has a strong 'edge'. Bought a 5ft mattress, but also purchased a double a few years ago. Excellent value item. 14 January 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Initially excellent, although lost its way after 4 weeks. False Economy. I ordered this product based on the good reviews it held...the delivery service was good and i was initially really pleased with the product. I change my bed probably two to three times over a two week period and have turned the mattress each time - as recommended. 4 weeks in - I am now very disappointed with the product as i can feel the outline of the coils each time i go bed...although this is a budget mattress, i did not expect this to do this so soon. It is now very uncomfortable and as i sleep on my side, my hips are starting to ache where i have lay upon a section of this outline. I weigh approx ten stone and therefore, excessive weight has not been put upon this. Sorry, but save for something that will last longer. 09 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great value product we bought this mattress due to its value, and its very comfortable, a real bargain,. We were pleasently suprised by the thickness of it, and the need to turn it every few weeks is a minor detail in an overall fantatstic value for money product. Would recommend this to anyone on a budget but looking for quality too. 08 December 2013
