Customer reviews can be difficult to get at and even harder to understand -- especially with brands trying at all costs to protect their reputation. These mattresses, sadly, aren't rated as well by sleepers. There are still those that love them, but many others have complaints. Read on below to get the details on the specifics.
Customers have mixed reviews about the support found in these mattresses. Though there are those that like what these mattresses offer them, others have found these mattresses not to be comfortable. If this brand is on your list, do additional research to ensure it works for your body.
Edge support is essential to those that like to lay close to the edge of the mattress. Others don't find it is to be a big concern. These mattresses may not be perfect when it comes to edge support so make sure to do added reading if it is an important item for you.
Sleepers note that durability is one of the most important factors to them. We all want it to be just as comfortable at the beginning as it is a decade later. Unfortunately, not all folks have had good things to say about these mattresses in regards to durability. If you are thinking about using this mattress nightly, read through the customer reviews and return policies to make sure that you are secure in your purchase.
With brands investing in managing online reputation, it's difficult for the average shopper to get to the truth of customer satisfaction. That said, these mattresses are reviewed well by customers overall. However, there were some who didn't appreciate the feel. so take a look at the research below to make sure one of these mattresses will work for you!
Mattresses that give good support are oftentimes thought of as firm, but when we talk about support, we're talking about supporting the the body properly no matter the firmness. These mattresses do a good job providing support for the average sleeper, but rarely, some customers are not always happy.
Most customers find that this mattress has good edge support, which what customers want who sit on the edge of the mattress or sleep at the edge of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
The bowling ball test of even support is important to figure out if the mattress will provide a good surface to support the spine. These mattresses provide a good amount of support for the average sleeper, but there are a select few who may experience discomfort.
These mattresses get mixed feelings from sleepers on their durability. We all want to find a mattress that will be as cozy now as it was 10 years ago, but sadly not all mattresses last a long time. If you are considering a mattress that isn't an A+ on durability, do a double-check on the trial and warranty policies and price to make sure that you are comfortable.
After a ton of research I was torn between buying one of these new online memory foam 'mattress in a box' mattresses or a latex mattress. As the memory foam was cheaper and companies offer a 100 day return policy, we gave one a try. Have since returned due to being too hot and replaced with a Dunlopillo Royal Sovereign mattress (king).View More Reviews
Our last version of this lasted 25 years worth of us sleeping in it, our sons bouncing on it as children and all those years of the kind of activity that made them.
We thought we would treat ourselves to one of these mattresses, but were very disappointed. We found after a short while in bed it was like sleeping on a concrete block, and on top of that, although it is supposed to be the latest technology and therefor cool , we woke up drenched in sweat, even with a 4 tog duvet and cotton mattress cover. Not what we expected, would not recommend to anyone.
We tried sleeping on this for 2-3 nights. Lovely for the first 15 minutes then it was 'most unpleasant'. It was like a rock, no give; yet somehow it was still bouncy. It was the most peculiar thing. I can't understand why I've read good reviews of it. We returned it ASAP. If you are considering buying this, I'd suggest you spend a long time on it in the shop.
The first good nights sleep in a long time. This mattress is very comfortable and regulates personal body heat. It did take a week or two to get used to, but now I would highly recommend it to anyone. The only product design fault is that there is no handles on the mattress to help manoeuvre it when you need to rotate the mattress as recommended by the manufacturer on a seasonal basis.
I had a royal sovereign dunlopillo mattress for many years and needed a new one I ordered the same mattress because I wanted the same firmness but I'm sorry to say it doesn't seem to be the same firmness at all it seems a lot softer and the topping that is used has all dimples over it and as I don't like mattress toppers it felt very odd under my fitted sheet. I know Dunlopillo need to hopefully make improvements but I was slightly disappointed as I was expecting it at least to be the same firmness & for me the outer topper should be smooth. In hindsight if Dunlopillo are making their mattresses slightly softer I would have gone for the more firmer one. I was given a delivery day and a three hour time slot the delivery guys were great they unpacked it and put it onto the bed frame took all the packaging away which was brilliant because it did come very well packed in a cardboard box and plastic wrapping.
Beware of buying the Super King size, it's just two singles stuck together with glue. NASTY and the worst buy I have ever had the misfortune of making. The manufacturer just shrugged off my complaints with "that's how they are made"
Bought a millennium and have had no end of trouble. Paid nearly £3000+ for a super king. It is MUCH firmer than shown. After 3 months it did not spring back, causing even firmer compression points that means the only way to get a comfortable position is to mould back in to the indents!! Called dreams and had an independent assessment done. The result was that the 'indents' were not sufficient to claim a faulty mattress. We were told to rotate the matress every few weeks. BE WARNED...this is a VERY HEAVY mattress and virtually impossible to rotate. We have now given up rotating as frequently as it is VERY DANGEROUS to health and we risk damaging our backs even further...in fact I am now considering calling in the Health and Safety Executive to perform a RISK ASSESSMENT. All in all a TERRIBLE mattress, with warranty promises that are NOT upheld . We had a Dunopilo mattress 16 years ago, and it was amazing, hence we bought another; but be warned, the new so called 'contoured' support is rubbish, AND if you do manage to rotate this mattress the zones change and it is even more uncomfortable. We are seemingly stuck with ours, but I would not want anyone to spend this much money and be saddled with a white elephant like we are.
Contacted them for a replacement pillow cover as the zip was broken and were of no help whatsoever. Really bad customer service!
Dunlopillo use a percentage (Undisclosed) of synthetic Latex in their products. The products are NOT 100% Natural Latex. Synthetic Latex is a petroleum based product and could not be more different from Natural Latex. Dunlopillo obscure this by stating they use 100% "Pure" Latex.
I had a Dunlopillo as a baby, I used it until I left home, my mum used it to sit on after hip and knee replacement surgery ! I have a new one
I had a Dunlopillo Debonair for 15 years and loved it as it was so comfortable. I bought a Dunlopillo Mellenium bed 4 weeks ago and I have pain in whichever shoulder and hip I’m lying on. I have trouble getting to sleep and when I do I’m woken up by pain. I’m at a loss at what to do next. It was over £2000. The bottom sheet wrinkles badly too.
WE bought 2 single Royal Sovereign Mattresses 2 years ago and we really regret it. After 6 months the mattress started to change shape and did sink were most op the pressure is. At that time we complained where we purchased the mattress and they informed us that this can be normal. Reading the small print afterwards, it indeed mentioned that the shape of the mattress can change. This is not acceptable for a so called top quality mattress!!! I am a physiotherapist and will never recommend this product.
We bought the Millenium mattress with a cool cover free upgrade - wish we hadn't! The sheets/mattress protector slip continually leaving wrinkles/bumps and most uncomfortable. Have tried 3 different mattress protectors and a new 100% cotton sheet to no avail. The shop where we bought is trying to arrange a replacement standard cover. Hopefully this will solve the problem - have yet to receive it.
It's like sleeping on a concrete block. If you are fan of firm mattresses then this is for you, but be prepared to take pain meds for the rest of your life. Not worth the cost.
Now we know what our mattress should feel like . It was really time we had a new one.We have replaced it with the same one we have had for 10 years .So it had really done us proud .No doubt (we hope) this good make will last just the same .
Having had and enjoyed two previous Dunlopillo mattresses we confidently ordered another. The royal Sovereign however ,despite being an upgrade for us, is far too firm and uncomfortable. We are yet to enjoy a pleasant nights sleep on it. I feel this may have been an expensive mistake.
A different style of mattress to what we have previously been used to but so glad we made the change. It's very comfortable and supportive without being restrictive.
Whilst Dunlopillo beds have a reputation as trusted quality brand I had a been appalled with there after purchase customer service. I had problems with a few broken plastic supports for the base slates and had to have multipal emails with pictures and gained little help in buying the replacement parts. They do not stand by their products for after care service. VERY disappointing.
Dunlopillo mattresses have been my favorite for 35 years. They’ve changed a bit over that time in terms of materials used, but I still prefer them to other types
Love my new mattress, tried several Dunlopillo mattresses in shops and like the gentle support of this one. For me it offers the support with out being too hard. Tries a few orthopaedic mattresses and just found them uncomfortable.It's a bit more than I planned to spend but have no regrets. Decided to buy online as it was in stock so received next day and they took my old one away which was a God send.
The mattress is covered in synthetic material and causes excess sweating .very disappointed.
Very sweaty and got compared to a traditional mattress
I decided to buy one of these after a friend of mine from bridge club told me about how wonderful they are. I was impressed by their connection to the Royal family. Unfortunately, the bed hasn't been what I expected. I wake up with back pain and think it is because of that bed -- way too firm.View More Reviews
went to a store yesterday that had both Hypnos and Vi-Spring. Hypnos was WAY too firm...solid like a rock.
Was gifted one of these by my company and it was okay for what I would consider a luxury brand. It is a bit firm, but I like my beds firm.
I've had this bed for the past 3 months and it is divine. I highly recommend it.
I was able to get one of these Hypnos beds and I have finally been able to sleep through the night again.
Something is wanting in this mattress, but I can't put my finger on it. I was very impressed by their branding and acclaim, and was hopeful that this would what my sleep needed. But, I'm still not sure.
This was my big investment and it was definitely worth it. The materials are very high quality and there has been no off-gassing or any other negatives that you would get from the trendy brands. This was for me.
I was expecting more of a luxury feel after spending so much money on my new mattress. Is it ok? Sure. But, when you shell out this kind of money, you are hoping for amazing. That is not how I feel.
A wonderful luxury bed. I sleep like a regent every night.
A hefy investment, but well worth it in the end. I love this new bed and so does my husband. No complaints.
both my wife and I are not large people, we purchased a very expensive Hypnos mattress with a topper and within a month and a half it was already sagging. I rotated it every week for six weeks and then every two weeks thereafter to no avail. The mattress now has two half moon shapes on either side and a big ridge in the middle. Furniture Village sent someone round to evaluate it and they said it had not sagged enough for a refund! Do not waste your money on this mattress.
This is the worse mattress that we have ever slept in, we paid £3000 for just the mattress and it feels like it's been slept in for years and we have only had it one month. Hypnos and living homes where we bought the mattress have sent people out to test the mattress, they laid on it for 20 seconds and said there is nothing wrong with it, we are waking every morning with back aches. We were swayed by the Royal warrants and the write up by Hypnos that it's the 'best bed in the world' in our opinion it's the worse. They won't accept our feelings and basically said there is nothing they can do! But we could go to the Furniture ombudsmen! (Nice customer service)! Anyway good luck if you buy one.
Very comfortable mattress. Slept on it directly on floor for two nights over Christmas and slept very soundly both nights.
Backache gone! I love this mattress. Best one I've bought. Highly recommend.
Absolutely love this matteres, it provides great support while the pillow top makes you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. This matteres also seems to keep the body temperature in check so no sweaty or cold nights in bed - just heavenly!
Best sleep for years. Only 'downside' is the overall thickness. Some fitted bed linen may not fit, but non-fitted sheets, no problem.
Really comfortable mattress!! love it...could sleep all day :)
Bought this mattress from Nottingham Store a week ago and told that it would feel slightly firmer on our existing base. The mattress has dipped already taking our body shape and the buttons on the pillow top dig into your spine and hips. This is the most uncomfortable mattress we've ever slept on.
Amazing Quality mattress, great comfort, worth spending on it !
Upgraded to a Hypnos mattress. Don't regret the decision at all. Best night sleep ever. Mattress worth every penny!
We bought this bed after having slept on a Hypnos bed in a luxury hotel. The price reflects the fact that it is a quality product, made in Britain. The recommendation is for a pure cotton mattress protector, which costs about £35. It is a very comfortable mattress, though it quickly forms small hollows where you lie, which we hadn't expected. Also you need to regularly turn it round - not easy as you get older!
Bought this mattress after recommendation from a friend and after reading the comments from other customers and I must say that I was not disappointed at all. Really good quality mattress and extremely comfortable to sleep on.
It took a few nights to get used to these new mattresses but now we really like them. The inclusive fabric topper gives the fairly firm mattress a lovely cosy feel. My troublesome back also feels well supported and comfortable. I thought I would miss my feather topper but I don't - and really wouldn't exchange it for anything else!
My wife and I have never slept so well since we took delivery of this mattress - we are very happy with this purchase.
Found it firmer than it felt in store & was starting to have doubts, but glad to report its now nice & comfy. As always with a mattress, you must try before buying. Now very happy with purchase.
Very comfortable mattress and ease to turn with good sized strong handles
The choice of a new mattress is something which is very individual so it is difficult to recommend to someone else. However, this mattress is made of natural fibres, it is firm without being uncomfortable. We bought it to replace our old mattress and we had no difficulty in adjusting to this new one. The quality of the materials is very high and I thought the name Hypnos had a good reputation for quality and good value. We thought the price was reasonable for a mattress of this quality.
Really comfortable mattress and great quality. Extra topping makes a real difference.
After a disastrous purchase only four years ago, we just had to replace our mattress. My son and daughter in law had discovered the true comfort of the Hypnos superb pillow top and couldn't have recommended it more. We went on their advice and now I feel the need to tell them how pleased we are with ours at every opportunity!!! We are now working on the rest of the family!
This is supremely comfortable and supportive, with a soft top layer to take the edge off the firmness. I have lower back pain, and this mattress really does help - it adjusts nicely to the shape of one's body and is very accommodating when (as with us) two people of significantly different sizes and weights sleep on the same surface. Despite the intake of breath when I saw the price, it is definitely worth it - no need to spend even more: this is truly excellent.
It's ckearly a quality product - but I probably wouldn't choose it again. But firm for me at only 10 stone. The top quilt but also makes me too hot
After 6 weeks in hospital I was left with a sore lower back. The Hypnos matters enable me to have the 8 hours of sleep I was used to.
This is an amazing mattress that was instantly comfortable! Although it is technically a firm mattress, it does not feel firm because it is so cushioned.
The Hypnos mattress is superbly comfortable and well made and it helps to have a ten year guarantee.
Was suffering from back and neck pain so decided it was time for a new mattress and this has been perfect!
Excellent mattress and base with (optional) 4-drawer storage. We've never slept so well! Polite delivery guys set the whole thing up and took away the old bed. Service as it should be. I haven't regretted making this purchase for a second.
I bought the mattress, that cost a lot of money, having been assured that I would and could be assured of a good nights sleep, especially given that I had back problems. The pillow topping I was assured was the ultimate in comfort on top of the firm mattress. What a mistake, the 'buttons' used to secure the topping to the mattress are right on a line with your hip and lower back, so no matter whether you lay on your right or left side or on your back, these 'buttons' intrude and press on that part of your body, meaning you have constant pressure from the item and giving you/me discomfort. Because I had to be away from home for a while I have now missed the 'return' date.
We'd expected that the mattress would need time to settle, but from the very first night it was very comfy and supportive without being hard or lumpy. The comfort topper is just enough to relax in to. It's heavy to turn, but that isn't surprising.Have never (as yet after 5 months) woken up with a sore back, which is unheard of for me. Great quality at a reasonable price.
Mattress-firm, ultra supportive mattress. Pillow top gives a soft feel but may limit longevity however ten year guarantee gives peace of mind. Side stitching means no sagging at the ends. Quality product.
I purchased 2 of these for 2 new bedrooms. What an amazing mattress! The mattress is the best i have ever slept on and would recommend anyone to purchase one.
