Put us to the test

Our Test Labs compare features and prices on a range of products. Try Which? to unlock our reviews. You'll instantly be able to compare our test scores, so you can make sure you don't get stuck with a Don't Buy.

Discover which mattress brands came out on top in our exclusive customer survey – and which you might want to avoid.

If you're buying a new mattress, it should be from a brand you can trust. We've surveyed 3,774 Which? members about their mattress to compile our definitive guide to the best and worst brands. 

We have results for 20 mattress brands, including Dreams, Ikea, John Lewis, Sealy and Tempur. Our survey revealed that there's a big difference in customer score between the best and worst brands – the top brand scores 83%, while the lowest scores just 52%.

Best and worst mattress brands

As well as the overall customer scores, each mattress brand is rated for how comfortable its mattresses are, how well they match the description and whether they offer value for money. 

Our individual brand review pages, such as this one for Silentnight mattresses, have more detail on each brand, including the types of mattress it sells, the prices of its mattresses and opinions from customers.
