The Dreams and Silentnight partnership is as strong as ever, with a new range of bespoke products sold through the retailer. Today we're looking at the Silentnight Hadleigh 800 Pocket Memory Mattress, a well reviewed product from a popular manufacturer that gets a lot right. Let's delve in.
Starting with that all important base layer, the layer that sits at the bottom in the makeup of the mattress. This layer contains pocket springs of varying quantity (depending on size), with 816 of them found in a king size variant. When it comes to support layers, you cannot typically go too far wrong with a pocket spring base. I find this particular base outperforms traditional open coil and foam based options fairly consistently and the reviews certainly back this up.
The base layer is also where you derive tension and support and in this case the springs are wound in a medium specification. This type of spec is typically regarded as having universal compatibility being a "catch all" that will often suit most people of average regardless of how you sleep.
Onto the comfort layer and you get a deep layer of memory foam that allows you to sink into the cocooning and warming memory experience. Memory foam is one of the most desirable upper layers found in mattresses and for good reason, the comfort relative to the cost is great and many people enjoy the experience offered from this type of foam. There are downsides to memory foam however as it acts as an insulator, retaining heat and capable of causing overheating in summer months. Generally this is minor and can be mitigated by opening a window or running a fan if you do get too warm. For most though, heat buildup isn't an issue and with the UK climate, probably welcome.
