Simba Mattress Review (AD)

*This post contains affiliate links*

There's been a lot of change going on at our house of late, and one of these days (after Christmas) I'll get around to a new Renovation update for any nosey folk out there. In the meantime, let me tell you about the Simba Hybrid mattress which we were sent to review. 

Recently, Sasha amazingly agreed to let her bunk beds go, in favour of a larger bed to spread all her toys out on. Choosing a mattress was a somewhat tense experience, which I wrote about over on my Facebook page.

I'd thought that the more choice there was, the better, and that Sasha would enjoy trying out every mattress in a big shop. Sadly that wasn't the case; there was a bit of a meltdown in store and we came home with no clear idea about what would suit her.

So of course we were delighted to be offered the chance to test out the Simba mattress. Below is Sasha's happy unboxing of it with her Dad:

The mattress came rolled up in a very compact box, which seems strange when you first see it. Once the mattress is out of the box and the packaging has been opened slightly, the air allows the mattress to pop up to its intended size. It then needs to rest for 3-5 hours, and can take up to 48 hours to completely settle, but you can sleep on it before then. Just remember it's preferable to unpack it in the morning!

The Simba mattress has a unique combination of 2,500 patented conical pocket springs and responsive memory foam. There are actually five layers - the top one is Simbatex', a comfort layer which gives cool, gentle support, then the spring layer, the memory foam layer, a support base and a hypoallergenic sleep surface for freshness and temperature control.

As you'll see in the video, Sasha definitely found it comfortable, and after a couple of nights of laying on it with her I'd agree! I love the fact that these mattresses are designed and manufactured in the UK, and that they don't need turning, just rotating. Delivery is included and can be next day for most places if an order is made before 5pm. The two man team will take it to your room of choice and will even take away your old mattress if you request it. The customer service aspect of buying a mattress like this is exceptional - you also get advance emails and texts with information about time of delivery, which is very helpful.

Even better, these mattresses come with a 200 night sleep trial; Simba will collect the mattress and refund if it is not suiting you. I'm fairly confident you'll be happy with it though...

So when was the last time you bought a new mattress? If you would like a better night's sleep, it could be worth considering a new one. 

After receiving this mattress I started using a Simba pillow and I highly recommend them for comfort. Best sleep I've ever had!

Disclosure: we were sent this product without charge so that we could test it and share what we thought on this blog. We weren't given payment or asked to write anything; all opinions are what we honestly thought of it. Sasha has been using this mattress for several months and still likes it; I end up sleeping with her every so often and still find it comfortable. If you buy using the link above I receive a small commission - thank you!
