Risk-averse buyers with deep pockets who are looking for a deep sleep.

How does the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid sleep?

Let me make one thing clear from the start. The only reason I didn’t give this mattress the full 5 star rating was because the cover cannot be removed for washing. Most bed-in-a-box mattresses offer this benefit. And I will not go into details, it has come in very useful more than once (we have young children, let’s blame them!). DreamCloud sells a luxurious waterproof mattress protector that is machine washable at 60 degrees, but costs an additional 45 to 60 euros.

This mattress looks and feels just as luxurious as DreamCloud claims. The first impression was very promising. Once taken out of the pocket, the mattress expanded at an unprecedented rate. The recommended waiting time for the extension is only five hours, but I think we could have slept within two hours. This is great news if you’ve used the old mattress removal service (an additional £ 35) and dread the prospect of sleeping on the sofa.

When I first became horizontal, this mattress felt too firm and unyielding. Nick admitted that he was mentally preparing to move into the guest room. Patience young grasshopper this mattress is a breeder. Once you get into position things get a lot more comfortable and in no time we’ve both been as good as a pound of sleep. When I woke up in the night and needed a “comfort break” and went back to bed, I was convinced that the mattress felt much softer. Maybe it gave way with my body heat, or maybe it’s magic. Anyway, I went back to the land of napping very quickly.

According to the DreamCloud website, this mattress is classified as a Luxury Firm which is a new term for me. A closer reading shows that this means “plush but very supportive” and is rated 6.5 on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being a cloud and 10 being a cement floor. Love it. If you use more modest / standard strength terms it is called medium strength. Our tame testers (three men, three women, between 10 and 17 stone) largely agreed – only the lightest tester found it “firm” and gave it an 8.

On the subject of support, DreamCloud says that this mattress is sufficiently supportive for any sleeping position. I tried the side, front, and back and found it most comfortable on my back. Nick said the same. I was very comfortable in other positions, but on my back I really felt the spine and shoulders loosening.

Our weight test showed a significant difference between the sink levels at the edge and in the middle. In the middle it sank to almost 10 cm and at the edge to only 7 cm. Of course, our great weight covers a small area and therefore sinks much deeper than a body in which the weight is more evenly distributed. But that’s still pretty deep and shows that this mattress is more springy than I imagined. The firm edge support is almost certainly due to the ActivEdge technology on these mattresses. This essentially means that the coil layer will extend all the way to the edge of the mattress so you can enjoy the entire area. This also reduces the transmission of motion, which is great if, like me, your partner loves to spin around on a rock like a seal.

In the pose, our laser level showed very good alignment over Nick’s lower spine, but not as good on the neck. An element of curvature in the neck is inevitable when you have your head on a fairly heavy pillow, but its shoulders should sag more than it does here. Broad shoulders are a factor and Nick naturally sleeps in his back so he didn’t complain of any complaints.

How does the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid rate online?

On DreamCloud’s own website, the reviews are pretty epic. A rating of 4.6 is the average over 2,308 reviews. However, many of them are American – there is a US version of this mattress that is not exactly the same. Probably not made in the UK for starters. And they won’t talk about the same customer service. Even so, there is a lot of excitement that has changed my life. Bless Americans for being so optimistic! Fortunately, the reviews from Trustpilot UK also give DreamCloud 4.6 out of 5 stars (273 reviews). The one-star reviews tend to focus on poor customer service, especially slow delivery, rather than mattress quality.

Starting from the top, the quilted top layer is nice and soft and regulates temperature. We tested this in the winter and our house has no heating, but that usually doesn’t stop me from sweating up a storm at 2am. I can happily report that this mattress did not aggravate the situation. It didn’t fix it, that probably requires HRT, but it didn’t make it worse! Layer two is breathable memory foam that does body contouring and layer three is denser foam for support. Layer four is all about the spools – 15 cm tall and individually wrapped, they offer maximum hold. You can really tell they are there, which makes this mattress the perfect first memory foam experience for anyone switching from Pocket Leap. The final layer is a base foam that provides stability and height. The mattress is 29 cm thick – a great height to get in and out of.

Order and delivery:

Ordering through the DreamCloud website is a breeze. Delivery times are free and are usually available within two weeks. Pick your day (Mon-Fri) and then get a three hour delivery window to narrow things down a few days before the due date. The delivery is organized and carried out by the unfortunately mentioned (but very nice) BJS Two-Man Home Delivery. They were very friendly men who called an hour before their arrival and carried the mattress upstairs for me without complaining about the attack course our builders had left in the hallway.

What do you get for your money?

Did I mention the lifetime guarantee? Or the 365-day sleep test? This winning combination is hard to beat in terms of safety. I dived deep into the terms and conditions and couldn’t see anything scary (like sneaky exit clauses) in the guarantee. It’s for your life, you can’t pass it on if you give the mattress away, which seems fair, but otherwise you seem to get a new mattress or a repair if more appropriate, in case something should ever go wrong. And yes, you can sleep on it for a year and send it back if it’s not for you. The customer service team will arrange a free pickup and you will receive a refund within 3 to 5 business days.

Is the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid worth it?

This isn’t the cheapest hybrid on the market, but it is one of the most luxurious with the longest testing and warranty I have come across. DreamCloud’s parent company, Resident, also owns Nectar, and the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid mattress was developed using all of the mattress’s know-how and experience.

If you’re still not convinced, think about the trees. DreamCloud runs a carbon offset program through ClimatePartner, which means that its mattresses are effectively climate neutral. They are also CertiPUR certified to ensure that the foam is free from harsh chemicals and gases that may appeal to allergy sufferers. Degassing was minimal during our testing period; The slight chemical odor associated with all memory foam subsided in less than 24 hours. I will definitely place DreamCloud at the top of my ranking when it comes time to replace our current mattress.
