Another great offering from the Resident House?. This DreamCloud mattress review (UK version) is on DreamCloud’s Luxury Hybrid Mattress. The DreamCloud mattress has had a great reception over in the states and now has brought its unique mattress here to the UK.
With thousands of customer reviews already on the DreamCloud Luxury mattress, we had no choice but to do our own examination and study to see if this mattress can compete with the other hybrid mattresses out there.
Let us get straight into this DreamCloud UK mattress review.

(Summary in Conclusion with Important Considerations)
Mattress Performance Test
1. Pressure Relief
The very first layer underneath the cover of the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid is a memory foam layer, added to provide pressure relief to the sleeper. The brand rates the mattress as “Luxury Firm” and gives it a 6,5 out of 10 on a firmness scale. According to our tests, it is on the firmer side of medium-firm but the memory foam still makes it feel very comfortable to lay on.
|• Side Sleepers
|➮ The mattress gives enough way for the sleeper’s hips and shoulders to sink slightly into the mattress in order to maintain a healthy spinal alignment in the side sleeping position.
|• Back Sleepers
|➮ Medium-firm is usually ideal for back sleepers as they need some extra support to not put additional pressure on the lower back area. Our tests showed great pressure relief for back sleepers.
|• Front/ Stomach Sleepers
|➮ Firmer mattresses are often preferred by front sleepers and the DreamCloud showed good results for pressure relief for this position, its supportive design aids in this sleeping position.
2. Temperature Regulation
Hot sleepers could be interested in having a closer look at the DreamCloud mattress. Thanks to its hybrid design with full-sized springs, air can flow freely through the mattress, making it breathable and not prone to retain heat. Our tests showed that heat dissipates quickly out of the mattress, making it a good cooling mattress option for those who tend to wake up feeling warm.
3. Spinal Alignment
A healthy spinal alignment is crucial for the future health of your back. Mattresses for back pain need to “give” a bit in order for the spine to stay in its natural curvation, no matter the sleeping position we choose. The DreamCloud is a supportive mattress but soft enough where it needs to be, providing great spinal alignment overall.
4. Motion Isolation
Motion isolation is especially important if you’re looking for a mattress for couples. The presence of full-sized springs in the DreamCloud mattress could have resulted in a higher motion transfer but the two foam layers on top are doing a good job of minimising this. This option may be better adapted for those specifically looking for a mattress for sex.
5. Edge Support
Mattresses that come delivered in a box don’t always necessary provide excellent edge support but the DreamCloud performed very well on this point. The large springs and firm nature of the mattress make the edges resist pressure which could make the mattress last in good condition for longer.
Additionally, the springs run all the way around the perimeter of the mattress whereas many mattress brands surround the springs in a foam layer thus reducing the edge support.
DreamCloud Mattress Firmness
The team at DreamCloud UK designed the Luxury Hybrid to appeal to the majority of sleepers in the UK. DreamCloud has given it a 6.5 out of 10 in terms of firmness with 10 being the hardest. From our personal testing, it feels more supportive than that.
We always recommend trying the mattress for 3-6 weeks to allow your body to get used to it. That way you can truly feel the benefits of the mattress.
DreamCloud Mattress Construction & Certifications
A hybrid mattress is defined as a mattress that combines the comfort and softness of foams such as memory foam or polyfoam with the support and sturdiness of springs, that way you get the best of both worlds. The DreamCloud mattress has 4 unique internal layers: breathable memory foam, polyfoam support foam, ActivEdge™ coils and finally a base foam layer.
Many UK mattress brands have adopted the CertiPUR® certification and DreamCloud is no exception. In a nutshell, CertiPUR® approved foams are made without mercury, lead and other heavy metals, and emit low levels of VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million). This reduces the smell of new mattresses many customers report in the mattress industry.
We did a bit of an investigation for this DreamCloud mattress review and found that it is proudly British as the mattresses are manufactured and shipped within the UK.
DreamCloud Mattress Layers
- Memory Foam Comfort Layer - placing a memory foam layer at the top, this ensures a deep contouring and pressure-relieving feel as you touch the mattress. Memory foam is slow in response, this means it forms the shape of your body very well. Memory foam mattresses are known to be heat retentive but by strategically placing it below the airy cooling cover this mitigates the effect of heat retention.
- Transition Foam Layer - Next up is a quicker reacting foam layer which will help the mattress to swiftly shape the mattress to form around your body shape. An added benefit by bringing in a firmer more supportive layer is that it's used as a transition layer between the soft memory foam layer and the underneath spring layer.
- ActivEdge™ Coil Layer - A hybrid mattress relies on its coils to provide the main support of the mattress. Keeping your spine aligned no matter your sleeping position. The DreamCloud makes use of full 15cm coils/springs whereas many hybrid mattresses use miniature-sized springs. The reason why its called ActivEdge™ is because they provide exceptional support across the entire surface of the mattress and the edge. That way you don't sink to the floor when sitting on the side of the mattress.
- Base Layer - Finally, we have the base layer for the coils to sit on and to act as another layer to reduce motion transfer from restless partners by absorbing the energy.
DreamCloud Mattress Quilted Cover
All luxury or premium mattresses invest many resources in creating a cover that not only is ultra comforting but aesthetically pleasing to the eye. DreamCloud's cover definitely fits the description. The quilted and double tufted cover not only is designed with premium softness but also engineered to be breathable. By using innovative phase change materials the DreamCloud delivers a temperature-controlled sleep experience.
It is also impressive how DreamCloud has been able to create a modern traditional pocket sprung mattress.
Additionally, the DreamCloud cover incorporates 4 handles (2 on each side) adding that extra practicality for when you need to move the mattress.

The DreamCloud UK mattress comes with a 1-year trial, yes you read correctly a 365-night trial, which means you can try out the mattress in the comfort of your own home (because 5 minutes in a retailer isn't enough). As we mentioned before we and sleep experts recommend you try out the mattress for at least 3-6 weeks and 52 weeks is more than enough.
What happens if you are not a fan of the mattress within this time frame? If you decide for any reason that DreamCloud is not your perfect mattress, they will collect it (at zero cost to you) and refund you 100% of your payment. That is over 3x the industry standard mattress trial period of 100-nights.
