Hypnos Mattress Review The Hypnos Saunderton Pillow Top

With all the publicity Hypnos got through supplying Premier Inns with their pillow top mattresses it has meant that demand for them is sky high. We hope our Hypnos Saunderton Pillow Top mattress review will help you pick the perfect Hypnos pillow top mattress for you.

This week our Hypnos mattress review is the Saunderton Pillow Top.

The Hypnos Saunderton Pillow Top bed is the firmest of the range pillow top model and looks great in our bed shop. It is paired with a open coil sprung firm edge divan base, which gives the mattress a more luxurious feel.

As this is the firmest of the pillow top mattresses made by Hypnos we thought we would review it on a platform top divan base. Being on a platform top base means there is a noticable differents between the mattresses in the range. The sides hold up well when i sit on the mattress. I can feel a sensation of comfort then the support of the spring unit. Lying back the mattress is extremely comfortable. The generously filled pillow top cushions my body whilst the springs provide support. The voids in my back are well cushioned. Moving onto my side is easy and the upholstery provides comfort for my shoulders, hips and ankles. Moving around is easier for me as the mattress is on a solid base and I am 6’5” and 17 stone. Infact is is noticably easier than moving on the softer Walbury Pillow Top mattress when it is on a sprung base. The mattress is even comfortable when lying on my front.

I'm impressed the way the ypnos Saunderton Pillow Top mattress holds its shape when i get off. The Adaptiv™ springs add loft to the pillow top and clearly do their job.

In order to provide a comparison with the other Hypnos pillow top mattresses I also tried the Saunderton on a open coil firm edge sprung divan base which gives a gentler feel. The mattress still feels firmer than the others in the range, but noticably softer than when on a platform top base. For a person of my size I would prefer a platform top base as it felt easier for me to move around on.

What are the benefits of a Hypnos Saunderton Pillow Top Mattress?

A Hypnos pillow top mattress offers several benefits that contribute to a luxurious and comfortable sleep experience:

  • Enhanced Comfort: The pillow top layer adds an extra layer of plush cushioning to the mattress, providing a soft and luxurious surface to sleep on. This additional padding can help alleviate pressure points and promote better circulation, resulting in improved comfort and reduced tossing and turning during the night.
  • Increased Support: While Hypnos pillow top mattresses offer a soft sleeping surface, they are built on a supportive core of ActivePro™ 6 turn pocket springs which provides underlying support to the body. This combination of softness and support can help maintain proper spinal alignment and reduce back pain.
  • Improved Durability: The pillow top layer of a Hypnos mattress is typically made from high-quality materials that are durable and resilient. This can help prolong the life of the mattress by providing an extra barrier against wear and tear, ensuring long-lasting comfort and support.
  • Temperature Regulation: Hypnos pillow top mattresses feature breathable materials and cooling technologies designed to regulate temperature and prevent overheating during sleep. This can help create a more comfortable sleep environment, particularly for those who tend to sleep hot.
  • Luxurious Feel: The added layer of padding in a pillow top mattress creates a plush and indulgent sleeping surface that exudes luxury. The handcrafted details and premium materials used in Hypnos mattresses further enhance the overall feel of luxury, providing a truly opulent sleep experience.
  • Hypoallergenic Properties: Some Hypnos pillow top mattresses are crafted with hypoallergenic materials, such as natural fibers like wool, which can resist dust mites and other allergens. This can be beneficial for individuals with allergies or respiratory issues, promoting a healthier sleep environment.

Overall, the benefits of a Hypnos pillow top mattress include enhanced comfort and increased support. These features contribute to a restful and rejuvenating sleep experience, making Hypnos pillow top mattresses a popular choice for those seeking quality and comfort.

Which Hypnos divan base should I pair the Saunderton Pillow Top mattress with?

The open coil firm edge divan base is the natural pairing with the Saunderton mattress for a more luxurious and gentle feel. Just how a pillow top mattress should feel. However we like it on a platform top base as it gives a firmer feel and a significant point of differents to the other pillow top beds in the range.

For a gentler feel choose a Hypnos sprung divan base

  • Hypnos firm edge divan base

For a firmer more supportive feel choose a platform top divan base

  • Hypnos platform top divan base
  • Hypnos Hideaway bed
  • Hypnos ottoman bed

The deep divan whether platform top or firm edge sprung has further finishing touches which include a great choice of storage drawers. They can also be custom made to your specification, higher, lower, longer, shorter or wider. Hypnos beds are a truly bespoke option. To finish your Hypnos divan base there is a great range of fabrics to upholster it in.

The headboard is an essential design feature for your Hypnos bed. It's an opportunity to make a statement. Hypnos have a wide range of fabric headboards to suit all tastes, from the classic to the contemporary.
