Any mattress is meant to be slept on, but when we are looking at a mattress such as this one, we are rarely thinking of a mattress for everyday use. Instead, a mattress such as Summerby Sleep No 1 is more in the lines of a mattress for a guest or a kids bedroom, rather than the one for the master suite.
What makes this coil spring/memory foam hybrid mattress so affordable? Well, to answer that question, we have to take a look at some of its main, defining characteristics. So, let's take a look at some of these mattress features.
Summerby Sleep No 1 combines memory foam with the traditional support of coil springs. As you can see, this is not a traditional hybrid, since there is no pocket spring and memory foam mixture in in this one.
Instead of pocket springs, Summerby Sleep No 1 relies on the traditional coil spring system to provide you with support and comfort. So, you could call this one a coil spring hybrid.
The coils don't move separately or independently, but they still manage to offer a satisfactory level of full-body support.
Arguably the best thing about this mattress is the soft, breathable cover. Although this soft knitted cover appears to be quilted – it is not, it is just a design feature. However, that doesn't take much away from it. It is still pleasant to lie on, although we don't recommend sleeping on a mattress without sheets.
Unfortunately, the cover is not removable or machine washable, but you can wash it with a damp cloth and some lukewarm water if you need to.
However, it is made from hypoallergenic fibre, presumably polyester, so you won't have to worry about dust mites or other allergens.
Underneath the soft cover and on top of the coil spring layer, we have a layer of the supportive, pressure-relieving memory foam layer.
This mattress combines memory foam with coil springs in order to become that great medium feel mattress, perfect for all sleeping positions, but it doesn't really manage to do so. This one is not quite comfortable for stomach sleepers.
Now, the memory foam layer does conform to your body's curves and it does offer some pressure relief around the core areas and pressure points to soothe your aches and pains, but not to an extent where you'd call it great.
Now, let's take a look at the final review of the affordable coil spring hybrid Summerby Sleep has made.
Summerby Sleep No 1 coil hybrid mattress combines memory foam and traditional springs into a great value pick. Now, this coil/memory foam hybrid is certainly not going to blow you away, but it was never meant to do it.
This is a mattress made for children or guest rooms. It's not extremely comfortable and supportive, but it does a pretty decent job of not being horrible, considering that it is cheaper than most cot mattresses available on the UK market.
On the other hand, one problem you might run into is motion isolation or lack thereof. If you're sharing a bed with a restless sleeper, you will probably feel their movement during the night. This is not a major issue whatsoever, but it is one worth noting.
Also, the lack of removable cover is really not something that should be happening at this price point.

The main selling point of this memory foam/coil spring mattress is certainly its price point. You won't be able to find a more affordable mattress in the United Kingdom than this one. As a brand, Summerby Sleep is known for its budget products, but they've really outdone themselves with this one. Also, when you think you couldn't possibly save more – you get free delivery.
Now, let's talk a little bit about our testing process.
First of all, we had to place an order for this memory foam/coil spring mattress. As you'd expect, not only is this mattress very affordable, but it also comes with free delivery. The mattress is compressed and rolled for convenient delivery, as is the case with all bed-in-a-box mattresses.
We were a bit concerned since we've read some customer reviews on how their mattress arrived damaged. Fortunately, this wasn't the case for us. Our double mattress came in perfect condition, and we could proceed.
Now, we took a slightly different approach with this one, as this is not the mattress you'd use every day. We've treated it as a guest or a kids bedroom mattress, as this one is exactly that. So, for a guest or a child, this mattress will be okay. Kids won't have any problem sleeping on it, and for one or two night's – we don't think your guests would also.
Now, as for roller and stress tests, the results were not great, to say the least. This mattress won't survive regular use unless you're a child under the age of 10, so, once again – don't use this one as your main mattress.
All in all, it is a solid mattress for the price, but you do have to keep certain things in mind.
In the end, let us answer some frequently asked questions about this one.
This memory foam/coil hybrid is best used by kids. Adults may also use it, only not on regular basis.
Not particularly. You will get some pressure relief with this one, but nothing substantial.
This is a fairly thin and simple mattress, so it should fully expand in about 8 hours.
This mattress is compressed and rolled for convenient delivery, so yes, it does come in a box.
For regular maintenance use a vacuum, and if you stain it – use a damp cloth and some baking soda.
It would be advised that you use a bed frame with a solid base for this one, otherwise, it will be too soft to comfortably sleep on.
