The mattress is excellent. It is soft yet firm. The top cloth is of superb quality and appearance. The cost may look high, but when we consider that we spend almost 8 to 10 hours a day for 300 days an year, and the warranty period of 10 years, the cost per night works out to less than the cost of a couple of coffees! That way it is very affordable. My sleep on the mattress for the past week was wonderful.
