Should I buy a Nectar Mattress?

The Nectar mattress scores highly with customers and press alike and is a popular choice in the bed in a box category. So, what kind of sleeper does the Nectar suit? With its adaptive cooling cover, the Nectar mattress is a particularly good choice for those who struggle to keep cool at night. The cover is designed to draw heat away from the body and circulate fresh air with every movement.

Nectar’s mattress is made with adaptive memory foam, which is designed to relieve common pressure points and provide better spinal alignment. Nectar says their mattress is designed to suit all body types and sleeping positions and many users do indeed back this up. However, the mattress does have a fair amount of sinkage, which some customers have found exacerbates existing back problems. However, many sleepers love the cloud like feeling that the mattress provides.

We would rate Nectar’s mattress as medium firm, although it is slightly firmer than other similar mattresses. This means that despite its softer top layers, the mattress provides good support underneath. It’s a classic memory foam mattress, carefully designed for optimum support.

It is worth noting that some customers report a slight delay with delivery on the Nectar mattress, and that the mattress takes a little longer than some other brands to get rid of the ‘gassy’ smell that comes with beds in a box.

Nectar offer an amazing 365 day trial of their mattress, along with a lifetime guarantee on the product, which means you have plenty of time to test the mattress out and see if it suits you.

With much to recommend it, the Nectar mattress is definitely a top contender for those in the market for a new mattress. Our Nectar mattress review will hopefully help you decide if it’s the one for you!

T3 named the Nectar Mattress one of its best mattresses of 2020: Comfortable from the minute Nectar comes out of its minimal packaging, it offers a medium-to-firm support level that suits any type of bed and all kinds of sleepers. There's a bit of give in the top layer, which neatly moulds around the body, while a complicated supporting base layer adds the required firmness for a peaceful sleep.


T3 Magazine

The Independent listed the Nectar as one of its best mattresses of 2020, saying: Comprising of three layers of foam, the mattress is slightly firmer than most and particularly good for front and back sleepers, as well as smaller and lighter people. The fourth layer, the soft quilted adaptive cooling cover, means you won’t feel hot, and we also like the seven zoned layer which attends to all your support needs.


The Independent

Ideal Home highly recommended the Nectar Mattress, saying: It seemed to work well and even the hottest of our two testers wasn’t disturbed in the night by rising temperatures. Plus there’s a ‘smart’ layer that also dissipates moisture, pressure relieving memory foam to provide comfort and support and a 7-zoned layer that adds more support where it’s most needed.

Since having the Nectar mattress my back pain has significantly reduced during the night and into the mornings. My partner and I have experienced an increase in sleep quality and wake up feeling energised. Was sceptical at first but glad that we took the plunge to invest in a proper mattress! (July 2020)

Nectar Customer

I really wish I had changed much sooner, my Nectar mattress is far better than my old mattress and much more supportive without being firm, I sleep better and feel much happier about being in bed! Love it! (May 2020)


Nectar Customer

I often overheat at night but the new mattress keeps perfect temperature. I also used to have neck and shoulder pain in the morning but now I wake up blissfully pain free in the morning. It feels like I can finally get a good night's sleep. Highly recommended! (March 2020)

Nectar Customer

This is the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on, I had a back issue that resolved within a week of sleeping on this, I feel better rested, my quality of sleep is far better and I no longer wake feeling tired and in pain, I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying a new mattress. (January 2020)


Nectar Customer

From the first night we have had an amazing night's sleep. We agreed it is the most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on. Delivery was spot on and set up a dream. A five star experience all around. (December 2019)

Nectar Customer

Fabulous mattress with my only regret being that I hadn't bought one much sooner! My sleeping patterns have sky rocketed from being broken with aching bones to a solid night’s sleep and feeling like I can take on the world the next again day. (November 2019)

Nectar Customer

The most incredible mattress. I really didn’t expect to love this mattress as much as I do. My partner and I had the worst, cheap, springy one before and it gave us such bad back problems we were sleeping on the sofa. We decided to go for Nectar based on reviews and we were absolutely not disappointed. It really is the most comfortable thing I've ever laid on and my back pain has gone in the last 6 weeks we have had the Nectar. (September 2019)
