Is the Nectar Premier Hybrid worth it?

So, you’re considering purchasing a Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress.

But is it worth your money? 🤔

Let’s take a look at how much it costs and what you get for that price.

How much does the Nectar Premier Hybrid cost?

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress is the most expensive in Nectar’s range.

When writing this Nectar Premier Hybrid review, prices began at just over £700 for a single size and climbed to over £1000 for the largest sizes. 💷

Price-performance ratio
The Nectar Premier Hybrid isn’t cheap, so as good as it is, it may not be worth the price for all shoppers.

Its higher price tag means it’s unsuitable for those searching for a budget-friendly mattress.

Is the mattress worth the price?

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress is worth the price in our books.

Let’s see why. 👇

It boasts 8 layers, including several layers of foam and pocket springs.

This design offers a blend of firm support, pressure relief, and enhanced breathability. 👏

Nectar premier hybrid foams close-up
Each layer of the Nectar Premier Hybrid is designed to work together for the best support.

Additionally, all foams in this mattress are CertiPUR-certified [1] and guaranteed not to contain any ozone depletors.

And it’s not just the mattress itself that justifies the cost.

All Nectar mattresses come with excellent customer support, free delivery, and exceptionally long trials and warranties.

You also support a more sustainable product. 🌳

Nectar mattresses are carbon neutral from the manufacturing process in the UK to delivery at your door.


How does the Nectar Premier Hybrid compare to other mattresses?

While the price is high, Nectar offers some decent discounts, though they’re not as frequent as they used to be.

They also have more affordable options, like the Nectar Memory Foam mattress.

Overall, the Nectar Premier Hybrid price is on par with similar hybrid mattresses.

It’s cheaper than the Simba Hybrid Luxe and DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid and a little more expensive than the Emma NextGen Premium or Emma Luxe Cooling mattress.

But, for those worried about pricing, brands like DreamCloud and Emma tend to offer more frequent discounts.

Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress composition

The Nectar Premier Hybrid features 8 layers, which include:

  • Quilted cooling cover
  • Dynamic support layer
  • Micro-springs layer
  • Memory foam layer
  • Transition layer
  • Pocket spring layer
  • Support base foam layer
  • Base material

In this section, we’ll take a closer look at each of these layers and how they affect the mattress (and your sleep). 🤔

Let’s take it from the top!

1. Quilted cooling cover

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress’s quilted cooling cover is designed to draw heat away from the body for a cooler sleep experience.

The cover is crafted from durable polyester and is removable and washable. 🧼

Nectar premier hybrid cover purple zip
The purple zip is easy to spot and seamless to use.

It also dries super fast, and its design allows it to be easily removed and replaced.

Our tester found the cover so soft and silky to the touch that the temptation to forgo a sheet was strong.

However, for the sake of hygiene, we used a sheet and mattress protector (and so should you)! 😉

DreamCloud sheets and Panda bedding are good options if you’re searching for a super soft feel to rival the Nectar Premier Hybrid’s quilted cover.

2. Dynamic support layer

This breathable foam layer has a bouncier feel and enhanced airflow capabilities compared to regular memory foam.

It contributes to the mattress having a firmer and cooler feel.

During our Nectar Premier Hybrid review, our tester commented that the mattress felt firm and supportive without being too hard.

3. Micro-springs layer

The micro-springs layer within the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress is designed to improve breathability.

It promotes fresh air circulation, drawing heat away from the body. 🌬️

This ensures a cooler and more comfortable sleep environment, ideal for individuals who sleep hot.

4. Memory foam layer

Memory foam offers relief of pressure points and tailored support.

It contours around the body, usually retaining heat and offering a hugging feel. 🤗

However, its placement further down in the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress layers helps mitigate the warm feeling.

With this design, the mattress provides excellent pressure relief without causing overheating.

5. Transition layer

The fifth layer of the Nectar Premier Hybrid helps improve the overall feel and support of the mattress.

It works with the support layer below to allow for micro-adjustments.

These adjustments help optimise spinal alignment for better sleep and mornings with fewer aches and pains.

6. Pocket spring layer

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress pocket spring layer plays a crucial role in promoting spinal alignment and enhancing breathability.

Each spring stands at 12 cm (4.7") tall and is individually pocketed.

This allows the springs to move independently for more contouring support. 👏

The tall spring layer also promotes airflow.

With up to 832 springs in the largest mattress size, this layer significantly boosts the mattress's ability to facilitate a cooler sleep environment.

It also bolsters edge support, making the mattress more stable.

Our tester found the edge support decent, noting that the mattress did not dip when lying near the sides. 👍

However, the mattress gave way when sitting or leaning on the edge.

7. Support base foam layer

This support foam layer sits near the bottom of the mattress and doesn’t affect the feel of it.

However, it plays an important role in improving the foundational stability and support of the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress. 💪

8. Base material

Last but not least, the base material wraps around the Nectar Premier Hybrid.

This layer prevents slipping, keeping your mattress firmly in place on your bed frame.

Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress firmness

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress is known for its firmer feel.

While Nectar categorises it as a 6 to 6.5 out of 10, our testers found it leans closer to a 7 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale. ✅

This may feel too firm for some individuals.

However, it’s worth noting that studies suggest a medium to firm mattress is best for reducing back pain [2], which can help improve sleep.

Our tester also noted that the Nectar Hybrid Premier mattress has a softer top, which helps achieve the desired firm support without feeling too hard.

The cushioned top of the mattress stops the Nectar Premier Hybrid from feeling too hard.

Now, let’s consider who this firmer mattress is best for. 👇

The Nectar Premier Hybrid firmness level makes it one of the best mattresses for back sleepers.

It is also suitable for lighter-weight stomach sleepers, as the firmer feel will be enough to prevent their pelvis from sinking in.

Heavier-weight side sleepers will also find this Nectar mattress comfortable as the firmness level allows enough sinkage for the shoulders and hips without letting them sink through completely.

The mattress can help maintain optimal spinal alignment for each of these sleepers.

Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress comfort and support

Our testers found the Nectar Hybrid Premier mattress very supportive and comfortable.

The layers work together for a balanced feel. ⚖️

How comfortable is the Nectar Premier Hybrid?

Our tester found this mattress very comfortable.

The overwhelmingly positive Trustpilot Nectar Premier Hybrid reviews also agree with this opinion, with most customers finding the mattress helped improve their sleep. ⭐

Highly-rated product
The Nectar Premier Hybrid is popular among customers.

However, it does have a firmer feel.

So, if you prefer a softer mattress or are a lighter-weight side sleeper, this won’t be the most comfortable mattress for you.

Nectar Premier Hybrid pressure relief

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress excels in pressure relief.

Its layers of pocket springs, which can move independently, and foams, which contour around the body, react precisely to your body and movements.

This can significantly reduce aches for most sleepers.


Nectar Premier Hybrid Edge support

Our Nectar Premier Hybrid review found the mattress had good edge support no matter where you lie.

This means that you can use the full width of the mattress.

However, the Nectar Premier Hybrid doesn’t have the best edge support for a hybrid mattress. 🙅

Edge support

You can’t comfortably sit or lean on the edges because this causes significant sinking.

Nectar Premier Hybrid temperature regulation

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress boasts excellent temperature regulation.

While it doesn’t feel cold to the touch, it can help prevent your body temperature from rising, which can disrupt sleep. 🌡️

Pocket sprung mattress air circulation

It does this by combining firmer, more breathable open-cell foams and pocket springs, which reduce heat retention and encourage airflow.

This feature ensures a more comfortable and better night's sleep.


Nectar Premier Hybrid motion transfer

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress excels in motion isolation.

This makes it an ideal choice for people sharing a bed.

low-motion transfer

Its construction minimises bounciness, which helps reduce movement transfer.

As a result, you won’t feel your partner shifting or climbing in or out of bed or shifting during the night.

Changing positions on the Nectar Premier Hybrid

The Nectar Hybrid Premier offers excellent motion isolation without compromising ease of movement.

Unlike traditional memory foam mattresses that contour to the body and restrict movement, its firmer hybrid design ensures you rest more on the surface.

This feature makes changing sleeping positions throughout the night effortless.

Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress sizes

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress comes in 4 sizes:

  • Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress single: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
  • Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress double: 135 x 190 cm (4’6” x 6’3”)
  • Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress king size: 150 x 200 cm (5’ x 6’6”)
  • Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress super king: 180 x 200 cm (6’ x 6’6”)

While not the most impressive sizing range, these are the standard UK sizes.

UK standard mattress sizes
The Nectar Premier Hybrid is not currently available in a small single or small double.

We’d recommend at least a double for couples shopping for a new mattress.

However, if you have the room, you may find a more spacious king or super king Nectar Hybrid Premier mattress to be more comfortable.


Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress delivery and setup

The delivery and setup process of our Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress was effortless.


Nectar offers free named-day delivery within just 3 working days.

The mattress is delivered rolled as a bed-in-a-box. 🚚

The comopany can also remove your old mattress for an extra charge.

Our tester was impressed with the delivery and commented that the drivers were incredibly friendly and carried the mattress directly to the bedroom.

This is very different from our recent experiences with competitors like Emma, who only deliver to the front door, leaving you to hassle with the box yourself.


Although unpacking is straightforward, the mattress is also heavy. 🏋️

We tested the Nectar Premier Hybrid super king, and the unpacking process was much easier with 2 people.

So we recommend enlisting a helping hand, particularly if you opt for a Nectar Premier Hybrid king or super king. 💪

The mattress expanded quickly, and we noticed minimal off-gassing.

Our tester was able to sleep on the mattress the same day, though Nectar advises that it may take up to two weeks for the mattress to expand fully.

Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress trial and guarantee

The Nectar Premier Hybrid comes with an outstanding 365-day trial.

Trial period
If you don’t love your Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress, you can return it for a full refund.

Nectar requires customers to sleep on their new mattress for at least a month before returning it to allow time to get used to the potentially different feeling.

The mattress also has a forever guarantee! 😀

However, it’s worth noting that the protection offered by this warranty dips after the first 10 years.

Still, the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress trial and guarantee are among the best and longest around.


Should you buy the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress?

The Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress is a firm favourite.

Our tester, alongside many customer Nectar Premier Hybrid reviews, rated the mattress highly for its comfort and knack for relieving aches and pains. ⭐

It also comes with Nectar’s exceptional customer service, hassle-free delivery, and the reassurance of lengthy trials and guarantees.

We recommend the Nectar Premier Hybrid if you’re a fan of firmer mattresses and the higher price point is within your budget.

Frequently asked questions

  • Nectar Hybrid vs Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress: How do they compare?

    The Nectar Premier Hybrid and Hybrid are similar mattresses.

    We rated the Nectar Hybrid 6.5 out of 10, slightly softer than the Nectar Premier Hybrid, which we rated 7 out of 10 in our Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress review UK.

    This makes the Nectar Hybrid better suited for back and side sleepers, while the Premier version is best for back sleepers.

    Both mattresses come with Nectar’s excellent customer service, easy and free delivery, outstandingly long 365-day trials, and forever guarantees.

    Each of these mattresses also offers excellent temperature regulation and pressure relief.

    However, the Nectar Premier Hybrid comes with a removable and machine-washable cover, unlike the Nectar Hybrid.

    The Premier version also comes with more layers of foam and pocket springs.

    Overall, these are both great mattresses.

    The Nectar Premier Hybrid is slightly more advanced, while the Hybrid is more affordable.

    If you’re wondering about the comparison between the original (not hybrid) Nectar Premier vs Nectar Hybrid, check out our reviews of the two mattresses.

    Nectar is known for its high-quality products, so you can't go wrong.

  • Nectar Premier Hybrid vs Simba Hybrid Pro: Which is better?

    The Nectar Premier Hybrid and Simba Hybrid Pro are both luxury hybrid mattresses.

    However, price-wise, the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress is slightly cheaper.

    With wool in its top layer, the Simba Hybrid Pro is slightly softer than the Nectar Premier Hybrid (6.5 vs 7 out of 10), which sticks to layers of foam and springs.

    If you’re looking for the best hybrid mattress UK, both mattresses fit the bill.

    Overall, the Simba Hybrid Pro is the best choice if you’re looking for a slightly softer mattress that sleeps medium-warm.

    The Nectar Premier Hybrid should be your top runner if you want a firmer and cooler feel and a longer trial and guarantee.

  • Is the Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress good for back pain?

    Several Nectar Premier Hybrid reviews comment on how the mattress helped reduce back pain.

    The mattress’s hybrid design, which includes pressure-relieving memory foam and responsive encapsulated springs, helps it provide a comfortable and supportive surface for sleeping.

    In addition, the Nectar Premier Hybrid is a firmer mattress, and studies suggest that medium to firm mattresses are good for relieving lower back pain [2].

    However, exact results may vary.

    Luckily, one of the best Nectar Premier Hybrid mattress benefits is its 365-day trial.

    This means you can try the mattress in the comfort of your own home for up to a year to see if it helps with your back pain, and you can return it if not.

    Just remember to use a mattress protector to avoid damaging the mattress.
