Hyde & Sleep Mattress Review – Luxury Comfort at Affordable Prices

Hyde and Sleep Mattress

“>Hyde & Sleep had the vision to help Britain improve the way it sleeps.

Their solution was to design the ultimate luxury mattress at an affordable price.

But as they delved into their research they found that people tend to fall into one of two camps, some like foam while others like traditional springs.

So they created both!

They have a hybrid mattress, featuring a combination of 2000 tiny springs and memory foam, and a pure memory foam mattress containing, you guessed it, memory foam!

They actually approached the company Dreams when they knew exactly what they needed to do and with their 30 years of bed expertise onside Hyde & Sleep came to market. They now sell exclusively online which helps keep the cost down and offer a 100-night sleep trial.

Something I don’t really like about Hyde and Sleep is that their advertising is very sexual, and I don’t know why. Sure that is an activity that happens in bed but compared to how often and long you spend sleeping in it shouldn’t be priority number one!

That said it doesn’t actually affect whether or not the mattress is any good, so let’s stick to the technical side for now.

First I’m going to review the Memory foam mattress and then the Pocket Spring. After that, I’m going to go into some specifics about guarantees and shipping so you can get all the information you need.

Hyde & Sleep Memory Foam Mattress Review

Hyde and Sleep Memory Foam Mattress

What’s it made of

Hyde and sleep developed their memory foam mattress using three very distinct layers of foam which are:

Layer 1. Cool foam

The first layer is the all important comfort layer. Traditionally memory foam trapped in heat which caused you to wake up too often from overheating and never quite get comfortable. Hyde and Sleep decided this wasn’t good enough so developed their own memory foam which has a cooling balm inside allowing you stay comfortable all night long.

Layer 2. Latex and Memory Foam

This is the real support of the mattress, it is a combination of memory foam and latex. The latex helps give it a little more bounce but it’s the memory foam that gives it the support. It moulds around you while you sleep, without trapping you, giving you extra support in your back and joints so you don’t wake up stiff in the morning.

Layer 3. High Density Foam Base

Hyde and Sleep

This helps firm up the mattress and ensures you don’t sink too deep. It’s castellated (which means it has little ridges like in the photo on the right) and has 7 different support zones which allow air to flow through the mattress and help it sink in all the right places to mould to your body.

Cover

The cover has a plush feel and is made primarily of polyester. It’s both breathable and soft which is everything you want in a mattress!

How It Feels

Always an important question, in terms of firmness it is definitely a medium-firm feel with quite a lot of sinkage happening across the board from the three layers of foam. The all foam feel means it doesn’t have much bounce (compared to a spring mattress) which could take some getting used to if you haven’t slept on memory foam before. But the latex combination layer gives it a lot more bounce than traditional memory foam.

Where memory foam does excel is if you sleep with a partner who has a tendency to move around and wake you up. It absorbs movement so if your partner is moving you will hardly feel a thing, this includes them getting up in the morning and coming to bed, you’ll hardly know they’re there!

Who’s It For

Couples – The movement absorption makes it great for couples who tend to run on different schedules.

Those looking for a softer feel – The medium feel and memory foam give it a much softer feel than a spring mattress.

Hot Sleepers – The cool layer helps take excess heat away while you sleep so you can stay relaxed and sleep the night through without being rudely awoken by night sweats!

Price

The Price of the Hyde and Sleep Memory Foam Mattress is very competitive amongst the online mattress retailers coming in at one of the cheapest.

Verdict

The memory foam mattress comes in at one of the cheapest available online and is great for hot sleepers and couples alike.

Hyde & Sleep Pocket Sprung Mattress Review

Hyde and Sleep Pocket Sprung Mattress

What’s it made of

The Hyde and Sleep pocket sprung mattress has two of the same layers as the memory foam, they both feature the cooling layer and the base layer but the all important difference is in the middle.

Pocket Spring Layer

Pocket spring mattresses are the only way to go if you don’t want foam or latex. Each spring is individually sewn into its own pocket so that it can move independently of all the others. This allows for maximum support of the body by cradling the parts that sink the deepest while gently pushing against you holding you in place and letting you completely relax.

How It Feels

The Pocket sprung mattress has a definite firmer feel over its memory foam counterpart thanks to the spring layer. This puts it at a medium-firm, it’s definitely not firm but is more than a medium. The springs give it a little more bounce putting a spring in your step as you get up in the morning.

It still contains two layers of foam so it is softer than a full spring mattress keeping you warm but comfortable all night long.

Who’s it for

Those needing something firmer – If you need something a little firmer than memory foam then this is the way to go.

Hot Sleepers – The cooling layer and breathable cover make it a great choice for those who tend to get on the warm side while they sleep.

Price

The Price of the Hyde and Sleep Pocket Spring Mattress is very competitive, I’ve linked through to the Hyde & Sleep Website below so you can chek out the prices of the different sizes.

Verdict

The springs definitely improve matters by firming up the mattress and making it have a great balance of comfort and support.

Guarantees

Now that we’ve had a look at each mattress let’s see what else Hyde and Sleep have to offer.

Well for a start they have a 100 night trial period where you can buy the mattress then have over three months of sleeping time before you have to fully commit. If you decide you don’t like it you can arrange for a free collection and get a full refund. This is a great compromise to only selling the mattress online, the price gets kept down and you can still try it out.

On top of that each mattress comes with a 10-year guarantee. They researched and found that a mattress should last around 8 years so they wanted to one up that and show the quality of the product they’re selling.

Shipping

Each mattress is rolled up and vacuum-packed into a handy box which gets delivered by UPS easy as pie. You just have to set the mattress on the bed open up the plastic and let it unroll. Far easier than having to cart a mattress home folded into the car!

They also offer free shipping which is a definite bonus, I know I’m always a sucker for free shipping but what can I say it’s free?

Customer Service

I spoke to one of the representatives on the instant messaging service they have on the Hyde and Sleep website. The person I spoke to responded very quickly and was both polite and helpful so that’s definite browny points there.

Final Thoughts

Hyde & Sleep really tried to keep everyone happy by providing both types of mattress. The memory foam mattress, is great for couples and the pocket sprung mattress offers good support and comfort for a great price.Click to visit the Hyde&Sleep Website

    I recently purchased the Hyde and Sleep pillow as a present for my husband. He had the medium – firm pillow from Tempur, and even if it is such a great quality was too firm for him so we decided to try something new. Unfortunately, all the great reviews on the internet turned out to be untrue: the pillow is smaller comparing to Tempur (which is not a problem) but we could feel the plastic inside (which is very uncomfortable when resting your head) and the quality has a lot to improve. Overall is not worth the price and is far from being same quality with Tempur. I am also disappointed by the customer service: I have posted the same review on Hyde and Sleep website but it wasn’t approved (hence only the positive reviews are approved), not really transparent with the customers!

      Shame to hear that about the pillow! I haven’t had a chance to review the pillow yet, also disappointed to hear about how they handle reviews on the website, it could always be that yours hasn’t been approved yet. I still think they have a couple of great mattresses though and you’ll be pleased to hear your voice isn’t silenced here! (unless your spam, then you get put in the bin before anyone tries anything.)

      • Andreea says:

        I have posted a review on Trusted Pilot last week, and that has been reported by Hyde and Sleep and removed from the website. Such a bad experience, cannot believe how dishonest they are!

        The team at Hyde and sleep reported my reviews by affirming that:

        1. I misled their customers by affirming that it has plastic inside (well, I have tried their product and when resting my head on the pillow it felt like plastic, very uncomfortable and noisy). Honest opinion, this is what a review should contain.
        2. Second, they’ve told me that is against the company policy to advertise other company’s products on their website, meaning that If I want to write a review I shouldn’t be comparing it with other products. Now, it is entirely true that I have compared a product with another, but please read the below review written by one of Hyde and Sleep customers directly, and that can be found on their website: (please note that this is not the only one, but I don’t want to extend this message more than I should)

        ”After feeling a friends Tempur mattress I decided to treat myself to a new mattress, I wanted Tempur quality but didn’t want to pay Tempur prices. With the £100.00 off deal my mattress cost a third of the price of the Tempur and feels just as comfortable. The pillows are really good as well, I only ordered one with them being £79.00 but as soon as me and my wife laid on it I ordered another so we had one each. Searched high and low for a high quality but reasonably priced mattress and these came up trumps, would definitely recommend”

        So as you can see, they have no problem in having their customers reviews published on their website as long as they are 5 stars, positive comments. When of course, they receive a negative review then it is in the company policy not to accept reviews where a product is compared with another.

        • thedozyowl says:

          Aww, really disappointed to hear you had such a terrible time with your pillow. I completely agree that if you’re saying the pillow feels plasticky then that’s not misinformation that’s an opinion. And you would think with them having so many positive reviews they would let in some negative ones to allow people to see every side of it. I still haven’t tried or reviewed the pillows so I’m afraid I can’t comment to give you a comparison!
