Can a memory foam mattress this cheap be worth buying? We think so. With a Which? Best Buy award and hundreds of happy reviews online, the Silentnight 3 Zone Memory Foam mattress does a great job of helping your body keep a natural position. A 3cm responsive memory foam layer provides body-moulding comfort and support, while alleviating pressure across your shoulders, hips and lower back. It's also anti-allergy, and although it might smell a bit when you first open it, that’s normal – it’s just the fresh foam, and will disappear after a few days.

Reasons to buy
+Extremely cheap +Comfortable but firm+Great support

As a rule, we don’t normally recommend open coil mattresses because they tend to give a less good night’s sleep. Happy Beds’ Super Orthopaedic Open Coil Spring mattress is the exception to the rule though, with almost 1,000 great reviews on Amazon. A thick layer of sturdy reflex foam sits on a strong network of traditional open coil springs, providing a firm level of support that Happy Beds says is “perfect for those seeking orthopaedic assistance”. We’re can’t guarantee this aspect – but at around £150 for a double on Amazon at the moment, this is easily one of the best cheap mattresses you can buy.
