Very good, and still going strong after 3 years
on 30 April 2013
I ordered this because the reviews were (mostly) favourable and it seemed like an excellent price for a deep, pocket sprung mattress.
DELIVERY: The usual issue (for me) is delivery. We both work full-time, and we cannot exactly fit a mattress into our hatchback.
The supplier rang me within 2 days of ordering to arrange delivery. They could not give me a specific "window" - their courier could only guarantee that it would be on the agreed day, between 9am and 5pm. Oh well. On the day, I duly installed my retired father in my home before 9am, supplied with snacks, daily paper, iPad and TV remote. I was delighted when he rang me at 9:45am to say that the mattress had just been delivered. At least he'd only had a 45 minute wait - barely enough time to read his paper.
The delivery men were very co-operative; carrying it through to the bedroom. Well, we do live in a bungalow, so I suppose it wasn't that difficult, but still nice of them.
WRAPPING/CONDITION: It was well packaged in 2 thick layers of plastic, which my father asked me to remove carefully, because he wanted it for his garden. No damage, very clean once unwrapped.
USE/COMFORT: So far, so good. Supportive, and comfortable. I haven't turned it yet, but I can lift it and manoeuvre it, so I don't anticipate any problems.
UPDATE: (March 2016) - nearly three years on, it is still fine - comfortable and supportive. I'm about 9.5 stone, my other half is about 11 stone, and the mattress is in our bedroom. I always turn it at least once a month, and it's only just starting to show a slight dip in each side - where the most weight is, presumably. At this rate, I estimate we'll get another couple of years out of it (ie, five years in total), which isn't bad for such a low cost mattress.
