Entering the comfort zone with the Simba Hybrid Mattress

The Simba Hybrid Mattress on a bed.

Sleep – or a distinct lack of it – is something that I seem to write about a lot. It’s been almost eight years since I regularly got a decent night’s kip.

Actually, it’s probably been even longer than that. While the kids have undoubtedly played a big part, a new acquisition has proved that I wasn’t set up for a good rest before they were even on the scene.

We took delivery of a Simba Hybrid Mattress a couple of weeks ago and, honestly, it has made such a difference. My old one was never nearly as comfortable – even when it was brand new.

Things have changed since I last got a new mattress. This one arrived rolled up in a box. “It can’t have springs in it,” I said to my wife. Wrong!

Despite its relatively compact appearance on arrival, there’s actually loads going on inside a Simba Hybrid.

There are no fewer than five layers – including springs! A top layer known as Simbatex provides comfort and support. Beneath this is one with conical pocket springs that adjust as you sleep.

This is complemented by a layer of memory foam and a support base with seven different zones. Then there’s the hypoallergenic, breathable sleep surface.

I was amazed that there’s so much to it. We positioned the mattress on our bed, carefully removed the plastic with a nifty cutter tool that came in the box and left it to do its thing.

It immediately started to rise. After a few hours, it had reached its full size. It was nowhere near bedtime, but it would have been rude not to have a lie-down.

It’s so comfortable! While I still get woken up by my kids, the quality of sleep has been so much better. I no longer ache in the mornings – even the day after five-a-side – and feel a lot more refreshed.

Something else that I’m really impressed by is Simba’s 100-night sleep trial. To give people over three months to decide whether they’re happy with their purchase shows real confidence in the product.

And, having used mine for a couple of weeks, I can see why the people at Simba have such faith in their mattresses. The quality is top notch and I’m really rather happy that I get to keep it.

I love our new mattress and am very happy to recommend Simba. If you’re on the lookout for a new one and like what you see here you can get £75 off here.

    I’ve heard great things about the Simba mattress! Looks really comfortable.

    We’ve had one of those rolled up in a box ones and they are just amazing aren’t they!
