The last matress I bought was 2nd hand and cost £29. It looked okay, but actually doesn't really function as a mattress. More like a floppy thing with springs inside.
Quite clearly I know nothing about mattresses.
I'm looking for a single mattress (I know, it's cheaper - and I live alone!) for about £100. I've seen a fair few of these 'memory foam' type ones on eBay for about that, but am not convinced about a pile of foam stuff as a mattress. Something with springs in will be better and last longer, right?
Whatever type of mattress they have at Travelodge's, though, might be perfect - as for me this is like sleeping on a cloud... Ahhhh...
What's good and what's not?
Somehow, I can negotiate the world of suspension forks and carbon fibre bit, but mattresses just make no sense to me..
