Hypnos Mattress Review The Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top

When you’ve gone through all the mattress brands and are still struggling to find one that you’ll enjoy for a long time, it might be time for you to consider a more organic mattress. The Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top mattress is made without chemicals, and it is also made without pesticides. These mattresses are made using traceable British wool, natural latex and unbleached cotton. Organic mattresses are important for those who have chemical sensitivities and those who are concerned with the environment.

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

The Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top bed is the top 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.

What's inside the Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top Mattress?

This single sided no turn Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top mattress comprises:

  • ReActivePro™ 6 turn pocket springs
  • 2kg, one whole fleece of British Wool traceable to the farm
  • Adaptiv™ springs
  • Solotex
  • Talay latex
  • Triple edge protection - the three outer rows of pocket springs that run down the side of the mattress use a firmer gauge wire so you are supported right to the edge of the mattress
  • Flat perimeter wire for additional side support

Hypnos Mattress Review The Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top Mattress

The sumptuous pillow top mattress looks very appealing to lie on. As I sit on the side in readiness to lie down I am aware the mattress has a springy feel. This is in part due to the level of upholstery and the layers of Adaptiv™ springs in the pillow top. However, once I am firmly planted on the bed I feel the support of the pocket springs which stop me sinking. The side of the mattress holds it shape well whilst I’m sitting and is supportive. I would expect this of a Hypnos mattress as the 3 outer rows of springs are made of a stronger wire and there are 3 three rows of hand side stitching to give extra support.

As I lie back on the mattress I feel the pillow top almost envelopes me and provides wonderful cushioning. All voids in my back are fully supported as I try to slide my hand beneath my body and the mattress.

It is not the easiest mattress for me to roll over onto my side as I am 6’5” and 17 stone, but for lighter person it shouldn’t prove a problem. I feel much happier on side than I did on my back. After while it really does feel comfortable. I then move onto my front and this is also a comfortable position. Clearly the deep pillow top filled with generous layers of natural fillings and the adaptive springs make this mattress most suited to side and front sleepers.

I also tried this mattress on a platform top divan base which gives a firmer feel. The mattress felt infinitely better for a person of my size, particularly when lying on my back. I felt more supported and found it easier to move around on.

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

A Hypnos Walbury pillow top mattress offers a number of benefits to the sleeper, including:

  • Comfort: The pillow top layer provides a soft and comfortable surface to sleep on, while the individual pocket springs in the mattress conform to the contours of your body to provide individual support.
  • Support: The pocket springs in the mattress work to absorb movement and distribute weight evenly, reducing pressure points and promoting better alignment.
  • Durability: Hypnos is a well-established brand with a reputation for producing high-quality mattresses that are built to last.
  • Motion isolation: The individual pocket springs in the mattress help to absorb movement, reducing transfer from one side of the bed to the other and making the mattress ideal for couples.
  • Health and wellness: Hypnos is committed to using high-quality, natural materials in its mattresses, which can help to reduce the risk of allergies and other health issues.
  • Quality of sleep: The comfort and support provided by the mattress can help to improve the quality of your sleep, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated when you wake up in the morning.

In summary, a Hypnos pillow top mattress provides a comfortable, supportive and healthy sleeping surface, making it a great choice for those who are looking for a high-end mattress that offers quality, comfort, and durability.

If you are a side sleeper, you will find the Hypnos Walbury Pillow Top mattress very comfortable and supportive as it has generous layers of upholstery giving it a medium feel. If you're of larger stature and like a marshmallow type mattress then this is a great option when paired with a sprung divan base. personally, being of bigger build I preferred the feel of the mattress with a platform top divan base.
