DreamCloud Mattress Review UK

Last updated:

Boxed mattresses are everywhere these days and it’s really difficult to choose the right one for your needs. Resident is one of the main players in the market and they operate in a number of countries including the UK. After launching Nectar, they decided it was the right time to also launch DreamCloud, their more premium brand. In this DreamCloud mattress review, I will talk about this excellent option that will remind you of a hotel mattress.

Although DreamCloud is an American brand, all mattresses are manufactured here in the UK and they are shipped inside carton boxes. Mine arrived about a month ago so it’s a good time now to move to the full review below.

Materials & Construction

The DreamCloud mattress is well-built and it features a total of 4 layers. These are:

  • A ‘Dream Plush’ memory foam layer that can provide your body with the needed pressure relief.
  • A support foam layer that can provide you with both comfort and support.
  • A layer made of tall pocket springs that is designed to eliminate motion transfer. The springs are also adding support.
  • A dense foam layer that is the base of this mattress. It’s designed to absorb motion to help couples sleep better.

This mattress is a thick one and measures 28cm in height. All foams used here are CertiPUR certified which means that they contain no mercury, lead or other heavy metals. The picture below shows the inside of the DreamCloud mattress.

The cover of the DreamCloud mattress has a complicated construction. The outer part is made of rayon and polyester. They chose these materials because they wanted to give a luxurious feel to this mattress. Underneath that, there are 2 foam layers that add extra comfort. This is an approach that not many makers take and this cover will definitely impress you. It also features a quilted top and the design is a beautiful one. The cover is breathable so you should expect the sleeping surface to stay cool during the night. It also feels soft and it feels quite premium.

Unfortunately, the cover of the DreamCloud mattress is not removable so you cannot machine-wash it. If you need to clean it, you should use a mild detergent and spot-clean it. On the sides, they have added 4 handles which are helpful when you want to move your mattress. This is great thinking and I love it when makers think this way. Overall, they did a great job here so no complaints at all.

Comfort & Support

It’s time to continue writing this DreamCloud mattress review and discuss its feel. Most ‘mattresses in a box’ are designed to suit the average sleeper so they come with a medium-firm feel. DreamCoud is not an exception and if I use my virtual scale here, I would say it’s a 6.5 with 10 being really firm. Let’s see now how this mattress performed during the past month.

Starting from the back position, the mattress immediately contoured to my body’s shape and I was really comfortable in this position. Support was excellent and I felt that my spine was aligned correctly. Pressure relief was great and the mattress did a great job managing my body’s weight. They promise a ‘floating’ feeling and I think that this is a fair statement.

Turning to the side position, the mattress adjusted quickly and the springs did a good job supporting my hips and shoulders. Sinkage increased and that helped my spine to align properly. Overall support was adequate and there was no discomfort in the hip area.

Finally, moving to the stomach position, the foam layers provided my body with plenty of pressure relief. The springs supported my hips and shoulders and it was quite comfortable in this position. Overall, I think that the DreamCloud mattress is a good all-rounder and it will suit combo sleepers.

If you share your bed with a partner, this mattress can be a good option. The hybrid system means that it has excellent edge support so you will get the same performance across the four corners of the sleeping surface. The tall springs are also designed to eliminate motion transfer so you won’t disturb each other during the night.


It’s already mentioned above that the DreamCloud mattress is a boxed one. It will be delivered in a carton box directly to your door. They offer a free nominated-day delivery service which is great. That means that you can choose the day you want your mattress delivered according to your schedule. If you want to have your old mattress removed, you can choose this option during checkout and it will cost you an extra £45. However, this is very helpful as it’s not always easy to get rid of an old mattress.

My mattress arrived within 3 days from the time of order and the couriers were very polite. Communication was good and I was frequently updated about the status of my order. The whole process was smooth and I was happy with the service I got.

Trial Period & Guarantee

When you order a DreamCloud mattress, you will get a 365-night trial period which is amazing. The only other brand that offers the same is Nectar. This gives you a whole year to decide whether you want to keep this mattress or not. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, you can return it and get your money back. The process is simple and they will come to collect it for free. I want to point out here that you don’t need to keep the original packaging to be able to return your mattress. Of course, make sure you recycle it!

Besides the trial period, you will also get a forever guarantee which is unbelievable! This is not a typo and your DreamCloud mattress will be covered for its entire life. The package offered here is by far the best in the market and you won’t find it elsewhere.

DreamCloud Mattress Review – The Verdict

The time has come now to complete this DreamCloud mattress review. I was very impressed by it and I think that it’s an amazing option for anyone looking for a premium mattress. The price is relatively high for a boxed mattress but they frequently run promotions so you will never pay retail. It’s a mattress that will suit all types of sleepers and comes with amazing service and support. If you like this ‘floating’ feeling then you should have the DreamCloud mattress at the top of your list.
