What is a Premier Inn mattress?

A Premier Inn mattress is used in every single Premier Inn hotel.

That’s over 76,000 rooms that come with a king-size Premier Inn mattress.

The Premier Inn beds were exclusively made for Premier Inn in 2004 and has been a popular feature of the hotel experience ever since.

But, who makes the Premier Inn mattress? 🧐

The Hypnos brand

Premier Inn has had a long-standing partnership with Hypnos Beds for nearly two decades to provide their guests with a sleeping experience like no other. 🥰

So, who are Hypnos?

hypnos mattress benefits
Hypnos is a long-established mattress brand.

Hypnos are a UK family-run brand of bed manufacturers. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

They are best known for making traditional handmade pocket sprung mattresses, including the Premier Inn Hypnos mattress.

In fact, we think it’s safe to say they know their stuff, as they have over 100 years of experience in manufacturing luxurious mattresses.

If you’re looking for a mattress fit for a Queen, then you’re in luck!

Hypnos gained the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in 2017 and The Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development in 2020. 👑

Sustainability is at the heart of the Hypnos brand and all of their mattresses are 100% recyclable.

What mattress does Premier Inn use?

Okay, so we’ve learned a bit about the Hypnos brand and how they partnered with Premier Inn.

But let’s cut to the chase.

Which Hypnos mattress does Premier Inn use? 🤔

What is the Premier Inn Hypnos mattress?

Premier Inn Hypnos beds were made especially for Premier Inn hotels.

It is a traditional handmade mattress just like every mattress in the Hypnos collection. 🧵

premier inn mattress layers
The Premier Inn bed comprises three layers.

The Premier Inn mattress is composed of:

  • 1,000 pocket springs encased in hypoallergenic fabric
  • A luxury wool pillowtop comfort layer
  • A hand-tufted non-removable cover

We’ll break down each of these layers and what they do below! 👇

What makes a Premier Inn mattress so comfortable?

But, what are pocket springs and what makes a wool layer so special?

Let’s translate all that mattress jargon for you...🧐

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are by far the best type of spring you can use in a mattress.

Traditional coil springs are all linked together and move in unison. 🤹

If someone starts jumping up and down on one end of the bed, the movement is transferred across the mattress and you’ll probably start bouncing about too.

Pocket springs work differently. 😮

They are encased in their own individual pockets, which move independently from one another.

pocket spring mattress graphic
Pocket sprung mattresses offer individual support.

Pocket spring mattresses isolate movement.

So even if your partner is doing cartwheels at the bottom of the bed, you should continue to sleep undisturbed.🤸

Generally, the more pocket springs in the mattress, the more supported you will feel.

1,000 pocket springs is a great start with the Premier Inn mattress.

1000-2000 pocket spring mattresses
1000 pocket springs should offer a fair amount of support.

But some mattresses have even more pocket springs. 🤯

For example, the Simba Hybrid mattress combines up to 2,500 pocket springs with open-cell Simba-Pure foam, offering even better motion isolation and support.


Natural wool layer

The natural wool pillow top layer is designed for enhanced comfort. 🥰

It works similarly to a mattress topper, except the pillow top is designed as part of the entire mattress.

Unlike memory foam, wool is highly breathable with incredible moisture-wicking technologies. 🌬️

premier inn mattress layers
The Premier Inn mattress includes a wool top layer.

This is great news for hot and sweaty sleepers who like the idea of a layered mattress but are concerned about overheating.

Wool will naturally disperse heat when you start to feel too warm and retain heat to keep you nice and toasty during winter.

Wool is also hypoallergenic, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies. 🦔🤧

But it’s not just the Premier Inn bed that comes with a cosy wool top for a super comfy mattress.

The Simba Hybrid Pro is designed with up to 5,000 pocket springs, open-cell Simba-Pure foam, and a natural wool top layer.

The seven layers in this design make it a highly advanced alternative to the Premier Inn Hypnos mattress.


Hand-tufted cover

All Hypnos mattresses, including the Premier Inn mattress, are hand-tufted with extra attention to detail. 🧵

Tufts provide pocket springs with some extra stability and encourage the mattress to keep its natural shape for years to come.

The hypoallergenic cover has also been sprayed with chemical-free fire retardant, helping to keep the mattress as natural as possible. 🌱

Unlike some other mattress covers, the Premier Inn mattress cover cannot be removed.

A removable and washable cover helps to keep the mattress dust-mite free, remove moisture, and improve the overall lifespan. ⏳

Mattress protector benefits graphics
Mattresses with removable covers help to keep the mattress fresh.

If hygiene is an important factor in your mattress buying experience, consider the Brook + Wilde Lux mattress.

The Brook + Wilde Lux, as well as other Brook + Wilde mattresses, come with removable covers that can be machine-washed. 🧼

We also recommend using a mattress protector to ensure your brand new mattress is as fully protected as possible.

Who is the Premier Inn mattress for?

The pocket springs and wool layer is a popular combination that will be suited to most people. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

However, we think the Premier Inn mattress is particularly good for:

  • Side sleepers
  • Couples and restless sleepers
  • Hot/sweaty sleepers
  • Those with allergies
  • Those looking for a mid-range product
  • The eco-conscious

It's a great choice for many!

However, if you're not sure the Premier Inn mattress is your cup of tea, you might find some other options more suitable.

What is the best Hypnos mattress to buy?

Relyon Bridgwater Dunlopillo® Latex mattress

The Relyon Bridgewater mattress is exclusive to Dreams.

Like Hypnos, Relyon began as a family-run business from Somerset in 1858.

Their mattress combines 1400 pocket springs, natural wool, and Dunlopillo latex for outstanding comfort and support.

This naturally antibacterial mattress is highly breathable and will regulate body temperature all year round. 🌡️

Premier Inn Hypnos mattress sizes

Premier Inn mattresses come in most UK bed sizes.

The following Premier Inn bed sizes are available:

  • Single Premier Inn mattress - 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
  • Double Premier Inn mattress - 135 x 190 cm (4’6” x 6’3”)

Unfortunately, Premier Inn mattresses are currently unavailable in small single, small double, and EU sizes. 😨

The depth of the mattress measures around 27 cm (10.6 inches) high (give or take a few centimetres due to the nature of a handmade product.)

How much does the Premier Inn mattress cost?

After sleeping on a Hypnos Premier Inn mattress, which can feel like a luxury sleeping experience, you might be concerned about the cost. 🤔

man weighing up mattress against cost graphic
You should weigh up your budget against the quality of the mattress you desire.

However, Premier Inn beds are actually very reasonably priced! 🤗

A Premier Inn mattress can be purchased for between £400 - £700, depending on your size.

If you’re looking for a divan set, then this is going to set you back around £600 - £1500.

If that’s still out of your budget, don’t worry!

We have plenty of budget-friendly options for you to choose from. 💰

The Silentnight Eco Comfort Pocket is not only cheaper but also comes with 1200 Mirapocket springs with zoned support.

This traditional-style mattress can also be flipped, which will help it last even longer.

And if money is tight, you can spread the cost over 3 instalments with Klarna Pay. 💳

Premier Inn bed delivery

Premier Inn mattresses include free delivery on all bed orders. 🚚

After placing your order for your new Premier Inn bed, you’ll be called to arrange a delivery date.

The good news is that Premier Inn mattresses also come with white glove delivery on beds and mattresses.

This means two couriers will bring the Premier Inn bed to your room of choice. 🧑‍🤝‍🧑

Premier Inn and Hypnos offer a white glove delivery service.

But we’ve got bad news if you’re impatient to get your new mattress as soon as possible.

You could be waiting up to 40 days for your new Premier Inn mattress to arrive. 👎

If you’re looking for something a bit more instant, bed-in-a-box mattresses can be delivered in as little as 3 days! 😱

The following mattresses offer fast and efficient delivery:

Do Premier Inn mattresses come with a sleep trial?

A sleep trial is a set amount of time you have to try the mattress before deciding if you like it. ⏳

Most sleep trials offer a full refund or exchange if you aren’t happy with the mattress after the set amount of time.

This helps to give customers extra peace of mind when buying online, as they’re not stuck with a mattress that isn’t right for them.

Unfortunately, when buying directly from Premier Inn, the mattress does not come with a sleep trial.

Some companies, like Emma, offer customers 200 nights to test the mattress.

Nectar and DreamCloud give you an entire year to decide whether or not you’re in love with their mattresses. 😱

If, after that year, you decide it's not for you, you'll get a full refund.

The Premier Inn "Good Night Guarantee"

Premier Inn has total confidence that you’ll enjoy your stay in one of their hotels. 🥰

In fact, if in the unlikely event you have a bad sleep, you can get your money back.

You have up to 7 days after your stay to make a claim on the Good Night Guarantee. 👌

How long do Premier Inn mattresses last?

But how does the guarantee work when you place an order for a Premier Inn mattress? 🧐

Premier Inn mattresses come with a 5-year manufacturer's guarantee.

This will protect you from faults such as dipping, but will not include accidental damage such as stains, spills, or damage to the material. 👩‍🔧

We highly recommend using a mattress protector to ensure your Premier Inn mattress is fully protected.

The Nectar Mattress Protector is fully waterproof for the ultimate protection.

This reasonably priced protector is made with natural Tencel fibres and is OETEX-certified.


Is 5 years a good guarantee?

A 5-year warranty is a pretty standard length of time for a mattress. 🤨

You should consider the length of the warranty against the price of the mattress.

For example, for a £500 Premier Inn mattress, this works out at £100 per year.

Whilst the Simba mattress costs around £879 for a double, they also offer a 10-year warranty.

This means you’ll pay just £87 per year for a better quality mattress, which is much cheaper in the long term. 😱

Should I buy a Premier Inn mattress?

If you’ve had a fantastic night’s sleep in a Premier Inn hotel, you might want to jump the gun and immediately buy a Hypnos Premier Inn mattress. 🛒

However, a mattress is a big expense and one that should be considered carefully.

Consider your budget, sleeping position, the warranty and whether or not it comes with a trial.

If your own mattress is old and tired, then it’s no surprise you had much better sleep in a hotel. 😅

Our best mattresses article can give you some pointers on choosing a new mattress.

And you might find some other mattresses more suitable. 👇

Frequently asked questions:

  • Can you put a Hypnos mattress on a slatted bed?

    All of Hypnos mattresses are suitable for a slatted bed frame. 

    However, you must ensure that the slats are no more than 3.0” (7.5cm) apart.

    Additionally, there should be a central support rail for double mattresses.

    Luckily, most double slatted beds are made with this structure. 

    These hotel mattresses are also suitable for divan bases. 

    Divan bases will give your mattress an overall firmer feel.

  • What firmness of mattress do hotels use?

    Most hotels will use a medium to medium-firm mattress in their hotels. 

    This is likely due to the side sleeping position being the most comfortable in this firmness. 

    With over 70% of adults sleeping on their side, hotels can accommodate most people with a comfortable sleep.

  • Can I buy the Premier Inn mattress at John Lewis?

    No, however there are a range of Hypnos mattresses available at John Lewis.

  • Are there small sizes available?

    Sadly not, only standard sizes. That means there is no small single or small double to buy.

  • Can I buy the Premier Inn mattress?

    Yes! The Premier Inn mattress is available for purchase at Premier Inn at Home.  

  • How firm is the Premier Inn mattress?

    We rate the Premier Inn mattress as a medium-firm on our firmness scale, and it should suit most sleeping positions.
