Simba hybrid luxe mattress, king: Was £2,399, now £1,324.95,

Made up of 10 layers, this is Simba’s most advanced mattress and, while it is on the more expensive side, the 45 per cent discount makes it a particularly good buy. Featuring in our round-up of the best mattresses, the hybrid luxe was praised for providing “decent support”, being “breathable” and “naturally temperature-regulating”. Our writer added they were “toasty warm on the luxe, even on a chilly winter’s evening”. With all the added features of the luxe, our tester said the end result was “highly comfortable”.

Emma luxe cooling mattress, king: Was £929, now £697.05,

This clever mattress from IndyBest-rated sleep brand Emma uses graphite foam technology to absorb your heat while you sleep, it then redistributes it through the rest of the mattress, to ensure you sleep soundly at the optimal temperature. Perfect for those who toss, turn and sweat year-round, this mattress is discounted by a huge 55 per cent, which is enough to make anyone sleep like a baby.

Silentnight Ruddington combination mattress: Was £1,199, now £699,

If you don’t want your hybrid mattress to have too much “sink”, this Dreams and Silentnight collaboration could be a great fit. It impressed our testers so much that it landed a spot our review of the best mattresses, where our writer noticed that it was “much more like a traditional pocket-sprung mattress than any other hybrid” mattress they tried. And, the memory foam combined with zoned pocket springs to offer “maximum amount of support in all the right places”, they added. Hypoallergenic and made from breathable materials, the mattress is currently reduced by £500.

Nectar memory foam mattress, king: Was £1,229, now £519.60,

With points for sustainability right off the bat, Nectar is the only climate-neutral mattress company in the UK, and, luckily, its products are pretty darn good too. Landing a spot in our preview mattress review, its memory foam offering was described by our tester as “slightly firmer than most and particularly good for front and back sleepers”. And, in our review, our tester touted the bed in a box for its “impressive bounce, stability and that instant feeling of relaxation while also being supported right across the body”. Now with nearly 60 per cent off, it’d be rude not to.

Emma premium mattress, king: Was £1,299, now £579,

Named best for movement isolation in our round-up of top mattresses, this Emma model now comes with a saving of more than £700. Our tester said: “We loved this hybrid mattress because it felt like the true Goldilocks choice – not too firm, not too soft.” They went on to add there are “five zones of springs, designed to adapt to your body as you move in the night”. These springs are designed to work independently of each other, which meant “our co-tester didn’t wake us up, no matter how much they fidgeted”.

Silentnight pocket essentials 1000 memory mattress, king: Was £449, now £317.99,

This great-value mattress combines the comfort of memory foam with the support of pocket springs. The top layer is memory foam, which gently hugs you to sleep, moulding to the contours of your body. The next layer down consists of 1,000 pocket springs, which respond to movement and weight independently, minimising motion transfer, so a moving partner shouldn’t keep you awake at night.
