IKEA is one of the most well-known affordable furniture brands with their multiple showrooms throughout the UK. Their mattresses offer very low prices with both sprung and foam designs. While most customers report happy initial comfort, there are significant complaints about sagging, firmness, and long term comfort about certain mattresses offered.
Silentnight is one of Britain's most popular budget mattress brands. It has 'Superbrand' status as a nationally recognised name. In terms of mattresses, they focus on pocket sprung and all-foam mattress varieties in a selection of firmnesses, and offer eco-friendly options too. Their most popular mattresses are often slimmer pocket sprung choices. They have good scores on initial comfort, with some limited customer feedback about durability over time.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Silentnight in this match up!

Some folks were completely satisfied with their new mattress, but others had issues with the feel. Despite those that are cozy, this means that these mattresses have lower than average customer satisfaction. If you are considering one of these mattresses, make sure to read on for more information.
Support is extremely important for the comfort of a night's sleep. At the beginning, these mattresses have high marks for support, but there are folks that felt the support wasn't great long term. Before purchasing, read the reviews to make sure you get the right fit for your body.
Edge support is important to most folks and makes it easy to get in and out of bed. Most folks find that these mattresses have okay edge support, but there may be issues with dipping on the edges for some.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
In tests that measure the density and supportiveness of these mattresses, supportiveness for these mattresses is fairly even. Some folks have mentioned that support may degrade over time for some.
Getting a mattress which has lasting comfort is what buyers are after. We all are hopeful our mattress will last a decade or more and stay just as cozy as day one. However, these mattresses are not rated well by some reviewers on durability and some have experienced breakdown after only a short time. If you are considering buying for your main mattress, make sure to review the specs against your body type to make sure it will work for you.
We all want to see what customers are saying before we buy a product -- especially a pricy one. That said, it's not always easy for shoppers to come up with takeaways after looking at many different mattress sites. We did an examination of reviews and sentiment and discovered that sleepers rate these mattresses above average overall. However, there are some mixed reviews. Make sure to read on for added specifics.
Reviewers like these mattresses supportiveness overall, which is ideal when you're looking for a mattress to cradle your hips and shoulders. That said, there are some that have described a lack of support for them, so make sure to do some extra research on the firmness and whether it will work on your body.
Edge support is an indicator of how supportive the sides of the mattress are versus the center. These mattresses do a fine job, but some folks may experience some contouring along the sides.
Having a mattress with good durability means saving yourself thousands. But, these days, everything from what you wear to where you sleep are degrading faster. Customers give mixed feedback when it comes to the durability of these mattresses. Each person is affected differently by their mattress and these may be fine for you, but others have had complaints long term. Make sure to read some of the customer reviews before purchasing.
Very comfortable, excellent value for money would definitely recommendView More Reviews
Great price, guests say very comfortable. Added airmax mattress topper and padded mattress protector for extra comfort.
I bought this mattress to go with the Slakt bed frame. It was recommended to go with that frame and the price was very reasonable. I understand that a rolled mattress may take a while to settle but thus mattress is 11cm too short for the frame, leaving a big gap at the bottom of the bed. There’s a whole slat that isn’t covered by mattress!! This doesn’t seem right considering IKEA recommend this mattress to go with the Slakt bed. I feel we will have to return it for a better fit.
Nice mattress and very comfortable
Does what a mattress should do.
I bought this mattress for my daughter who is a mere 66kg. She does love the springyness of however, after only 2 months it is no longer flat and has developed creases/ridges which she says makes it less comfy. Disappointed.
An excellent mattress at a reasonable price, great
My teenage daughter absolutely loves this bed. We ordered online & click & collect down in Nottingham was the only place with it available.... 4hr round trip BUT so pleased with it.
I makes me want to stay in bed all day long :) It really good , farm and strong and comfortable
Bought for our daughter, says mattress is comfy and sleeps well
Soft and firm at the same time.
We spent some time in store testing out all the different mattresses, and it was definitely worth it - we’ve had this one for a few months now and it is so comfortable! We had many a good nights sleep!
We bought the medium firm mattress and are really pleased with how comfortable it is. We coupled this with the Leirsund slats and this seems to also help with the comfort of the mattress. We couldn’t have made a better choice.
Ikea never fail in their design for comfort with their mattresses, I cannot fault them. You will get a good night sleep.
My mother at 82, a recent cancer survivor and currently living with vascular dementia, so her dreamy comfort whilst she sleeps is paramount. This recent item, goes some way to add the additional comfort required to our existing bed.
Perfect nights sleep every night
Really comfortable and affordable. Deciding was difficult but only because of range available. Ifind it very comfortable
Super comfy, like sleeping in the clouds but not too soft.
Wasn’t expecting that much but it really is comfortable
Mattress, good value and comfortable
Very comfy the edging colour isn’t appealing but covered with a fitted sheet anyway
Worth spending more than the foam versions for the hemnes day bed
Great value for money and great for the spare bed. I liked it so much that I bought bigger size for my bed. Comfortable and really good feature of being able to wash the outside cover.
Was not expecting much for the price of the mattress but it’s the best we have bought. So comfy and stayed like new. Bargain!
Not used get owing to lock down but I have laid on it and it seems fine.
I bought a secondhand bed from Gumtree and needed a mattress. I only realised when I assembled it that it was a superking and the mattresses for super kings are really expensive. However I found out that 2 singles = 1 superking. It worked really well once all the bedding was on!
Gives you a good nights sleep
Cheap price for what needed it form worked well
Excellent quality and very comfortable
Very comfortable,very good quality. Is not flat packed, hard to transport.
We have had the Mattress for 5 years and a little while ago we noticed that it started to sag on all the edges! We kept our Receipts as it came with a guarantee so someone was sent out to assess, we were told that our bed frame is not supportive enough! I have never had a mattress do this before we do not sit nor lie on the edges of our beds and our bed frame is perfectly acceptable so i will not be being an Ikea mattress again!
We had purchased 2 mattresses. After few months, started back pain due to it’s quality as it’s shrunk down completely. And same experience with other family member as found same issue as she is now suffering due to back pain. Not recommended product to be honest.
Delivery was wise as it was 25kg but you could easily collect it in a car with help. Unrolled it takes a few days to restore itself. Initially it felt hard but it is perfect now.
Fantastic price for a great mattress
The worst mattress on the plant! I know it not super expensive but it’s so hard like a rock, I tried this in store before I bought it and it was so nice, got deliver and I thought I might give it a time to get used to it, but it’s so bad I bought it less then 2 years ago and my back hurts so only 22 and I should not have back problems at this age, my husband which is 28 is also starting get really bad back pains I’m so sad they can’t do an exchange.
Would not advise to buy a foam mattress considering to exchange for a spring when we can get back to the store
These sprung mattresses are very comfy, people that have used them always compliment how comfortable they are. I would say worth spending the extra for a bit of comfort.
avoid this item as the quality is very poor. it did not even reach one year from the date of our purchase and it already started sagging. the mattress has already become very uncomfortable to sleep on and my body is already sinking into it.
So comfortable used with white wooden Hemnes bed. Fab.
Does want it says on the tin - no issue so far!
I'm delighted with single mattress for my recently purchased bedframe. The mattress is good quality at a superb price. Delivery was free and I was kept up to date on delivery time, and the delivery guys were very professional and helpful.View More Reviews
I tried this mattress in store and it felt right. But after one full night's sleep on it, I completely regret purchasing this. It's too hard, you can feel all the springs and it feels quite lumpy as well. Would not recommend.
I bought this a few weeks ago and was surprised by its value and quality. It arrived promptly, firm and really good for my back.
Bought this for my 14 year old small daughter and have another Miracoil Mattress for my 16 year old son which I bought just over a year ago. At first they seemed ok but my son has been complaining about it for several months. As first I took no notice (whinging teenager) but after several months I went to see what he was fussing about and couldn't believe it. His mattress makes a LOUD CRUNCHING NOISE every time you move. The springs feel like big lumps. So I went to check my daughters mattress which is only a few months old and low and behold, it's is going exactly the same way!
I bought 2 of the single mattresses for a twin B&B room & am very satisfied with them. Decent mattresses for a reasonable price. Delivery was very efficient too.
Bought for 13 year old and 11 year old boys. Really comfortable with very soft fabric covering the mattress. Firm but with a bit of bounce! Perfect.
bought for our son, no complaints, he has slept very well on it .
Bought for 4 1/2 year old. Very comfortable for him. Also comfortable for an adult.
Really comfortable mattress, not too soft and with much more springs than alternatives priced around the same. We bought this for daughters first big girl bed and she has slept really well on this, so thumbs up all round!
Excellent product. My son had a thin mattress before and wasn’t very good. but this will be perfect till he grows up and wants a bigger bed
Pretty good value for the price. No carrying handles.
Ordered for our spare bed, very comfy, good support. This was the cheapest and best value online after checking a few retailers websites. Great buy.
Really pleased. This mattress is good value for money and most comfortable.
Great mattress, nice and comfortable. Perfect for a child’s bed.
I bought this for my 3 year old daughter and she has slept very well on it
We purchased this item having already bought a double and king size in the same style.The mattress is extremely comfortable and well made you can see from the way the stitching and cover has been finished. It is firm but comfortably so and our 12 year old grandson sleeps on this on a weekly basis without complaint. Recommended
I bought two of these for my sons rooms. The quality is good and the service was perfect.
easy to order, delivered on time great product, great service
An excellent product, gives a good support to the back. Excellent delivery as scheduled. Love the old mattress removal service.
Really delighted with mum purchase. We bought 2 & not disappointed. They are fairly firm and very comfortable.
Even though it’s firm it is actually very comfortable and I usually wake up with a back ache with my expensive medium mattress but had no back ache when slept on this one!
It's a mattress. It's comfortable. Who could ask for more really?
Very pleased with new mattress which was delivered on time and carried up to the bedroom. As always great service from Jonh. Lewis
A very comfortable mattress. It is firm enough to give support without being too hard
Bought two of these for the grandchildren's beds and were very pleased with the comfort and support the provide.
all very excellent according to my 14 year old son who sleeps on it
There a water bed effect once you lie down, you keep moving for seconds....did not realise that this would happen. Very unhappy
Replacement for my teenage daughters bed. Nice and firm and no complaints so far. Sleeping,well like a teenager does, well into the afternoon.So enjoying the product.
Very happy with the mattress. Very comfy so hopefully worth paying more for it
Bought for my son who preferred sleeping on the floor to sleeping in bed! Since buying it he has happily slept in bed and is now not waking up at night and being grumpy all day!
Our little one transitioned from his cot to a standard bed. He has always slept incredibly well on this mattress. I would recommend letting it air well before first use and regularly rotating!
I brought this for my granddaughters bed. she loves it and has the best sleeps ever.
I got this for my daughters first big girls bed. She finds it very comfortable and I do too. It has good support and I'm pleased we didn't go for a cheaper one on the market. I know she's getting the support she needs while she is growing and sleeping.
Bougth this mattress for my son's first big bed. Mattress very comfortable. It could do with handles on the side to help with changing etc but apart from that...great!
A brilliant, comfortable and thick mattrest for my 9 year old. A fraction of the price that other bed specialists were charging not to mention their foam ones were ridden with a chemical smell, which I had to return.
Really great mattress for child's bed very comfortable and great support for a growing child
Very high quality, firm mattress, which my 2.5yr old daughter finds very comfortable. The mattress is quite high, but will be a long-lasting buy throughout her growing childhood years.
This is the best mattress I have slept on. Maybe our previous matresss was awful, but this is absolute heaven. As soon as you get into the bed you settle down straight away. I have woken up in same position in the mornings, that’s how comfy this bed is! As a result of the foam there can be a tendency for bed to get too warm, this is great on cold winter nights, but you just need to adapt fir the summer months I reckon. To be honest we have only had it since Xmas so really experienced winter months and the odd warm evening recently. Would definitely recommend and I have!!!
I tried this mattress in store and thought it was fine, it didn't feel like a firm mattress at all even though it is labelled as such, however the mattress I actually received was significantly firmer and as a result I find it very uncomfortable and am not sleeping. I think the mattresses they have in store are old and have had a lot of use, perhaps they should replace them so that people are not being misled.
This replaced and old futon mattress, so we wanted no "sag" but a softer surface and that is what we got. We are both just short of average height and fairly chubby, but had no special requirements. The mattress is very comfortable and the only drawback for us is that it is much deeper than what we had before so it is quite a bit higher above the floor. Oh yes, we also had to get deeper fitted lower sheets.
