HomyLink mattress review – does this extremely budget brand have what it takes to beat the more well-known online mattress brands?
After all, we all want to save a few quid where we can, but only if we are getting like-for-like quality. So, where does HomyLink fit? Let’s find out in our full HomyLink mattress review:
Right, we’ve already made reference to the fact this is a budget brand. Not just a ‘slightly cheaper’ brand but a ‘several hundreds of pounds cheaper’ brand.
Where the more well-known online mattresses will set you back around £700 for a double, the HomyLink double mattresses are available for less than £250.
For that, you’ll get a choice of four mattresses. There’s the GILIA pocket sprung mattress, the DAYLILY pillow top mattress, the BLACKTREE double memory foam mattress, or the PINE cooling gel memory mattress.
That means you have a choice between pocket sprung or hybrid. There are no purely foam mattresses available.
Here’s a quick overview:
All four mattresses have the slightly more traditional look about them, though the PINE mattress is a little more modern-looking. We are pleased to see that like the bigger brands, there’s also a lengthy 100-night trial available with all three mattresses.
Is The HomyLink Mattress Best For You?
Answer 4 simple questions below to get a personal recommendation on which mattress may work best for you:
Our HomyLink mattress review has, so far, just given a top-level overview of the brand. Let’s dig a little deeper into what makes their mattresses a good choice…
It’s the obvious thing and we’ve mentioned it already, but the price is so good we need to mention it again! Even if you go for the highest priced HomyLink mattress, you still stand to save around £500 compared to the more popular online mattress brands.
That means, if you’re on a tight budget, HomyLink is likely to be a very appealing option.
Long Trial Length
It’s great to see that, despite being one of the lowest cost online mattresses out there, they still offer you an excellent 100-night trial length.
That means you still have plenty of time to try your chosen mattress out and make sure it’s right for you. If you do need to return it, you’ll get a full refund providing all terms are met.
Choice Of Mattresses
Few of the other online mattress brands can match HomyLink for the range of mattresses they offer. Most may offer one or two types of mattress and might have a standard and premium option. However, HomyLink offer four completely different mattresses.
All are similarly priced but come with different features that helps to ensure, whatever you’re after, there is a mattress for you.
No HomyLink mattress review would be being completely honest if it didn’t cover the weaknesses of the brand too. So, here goes nothing…
As is true with most things in life, you get what you pay for. HomyLink mattresses are actually surprisingly good quality given the price. As they don’t spend a lot of money on expensive advertising and branding campaigns they can pass that on to you as cost savings.
But, even with that, if you’re expecting a top-quality high-spec mattress for less than £250, you’ll be disappointed. That just isn’t available. Anywhere.
But, if you’re happy to accept a good quality mattress at a very affordable price then HomyLink delivers.
Short Warranty Period
Most online mattresses come with a 10-year guarantee. The HomyLink mattresses only come with a 3-month warranty. That probably reflects the lower quality you’re getting (see previous point).
Again, it doesn’t mean it’s bad, but if you’re only paying a third of the price, you have to expect it may not last as long as the bigger brands.
The mattress isn’t the only thing low-budget about the brand, if we are completely honest. The website is also a little lacking.
Again, it’s not bad as such, it just lacks the sophistication of some of the better-known brands. It also has the occasional spelling mistake or badly worded sentence. Plus, they can’t seem to decide whether their brand is called HomyLink or Homylink and use both variations throughout.
Of course, a low-budget website isn’t a reason not to buy. You want a mattress, not a website. It’s just another factor that indicates the level the brand is at.

Comfort, Firmness & Support
Our HomyLink mattress review has found that all four types of mattress offered by the brand are around a medium level of firmness.
That means they offer a good blend between comfort and support. We would normally go into more detail about the exact features of each mattress here, but, given there are four very different mattresses, we think it’s better if you take a look yourself.
Most of the customers of HomyLink seem to praise the comfort levels, plus the mattresses have an orthopaedic design to help support you while you sleep.
However, we should point out that they do appear to get very occasional reviews that question the comfort levels. That perhaps isn’t surprising, especially in a budget price mattress. That’s why you have the 100-night trial – to make absolutely sure it’s right for you.
Materials & Construction
Again, we’d normally use this section to go through the each layer of the mattresses a brand offers. However, since each mattress is so different, we think it would get too confusing to do that here. So, instead our HomyLink mattress review is going to give a brief overview of each mattress.
GILIA Pocket Sprung Mattress
This is probably the most traditional mattress of the ones offered by HomyLink. It’s a combination of two types of foam and a pocket sprung base and is designed to offer plenty of support.
That makes it a good choice for those who suffer from aches and pains when sleeping.
DAYLILY Pillow Top Mattress
This mattress is very similar to the GILIA and mixes two types of foam with the pocket sprung base. However, the key difference is the padded top that gives more a sinking feeling and a softer feel.
This makes it a good choice for those that want the support but prefer more of a ‘sinking’ feeling.
BLACKTREE Double Memory Foam Mattress
Why have one layer of memory foam when you can have two? This mattress combines those two memory foam layers with two other types of foam and a pocket sprung base.
This makes it a good choice for those that want the ergonomic feel of a memory foam mattress.
PINE Cooling Gel Memory Mattress
One issue with memory foam is that it often leads to a hotter, sweatier sleep. This mattress solves that with a special coooling gel memory foam layer alongside several other important foam layers and a pocket sprung base.
This makes it a good choice for people who want the comfort of memory foam without feeling they are overheating during the night.
HomyLink Mattress Awards
As a less well-known brand, we are not aware of HomyLink winning any awards. If our HomyLink mattress review has got that wrong, be sure to let us know!
HomyLink Mattress – 100-Night Trial
We mentioned earlier in our HomyLink mattress review that they offer a 100-night trial with all their mattresses. This is actually a little unexpected if we’re honest but it’s a pleasant surprise.
It’s thought to take around 30 nights for you to adjust to a new mattress so we always say that’s the least a brand should offer. While 100 nights is a little excessive, we certainly won’t complain about such a long trial.
Essentially it means you can buy a HomyLink mattress without risk. If you don’t like it, for any reason, you can contact them and return it for a full refund. They’ll arrange collection and will ensure you used mattress is recycled.
Delivery, Warranty & Returns
What has our HomyLink mattress review found out about the delivery and returns policies?
Well, delivery is OK but not amazing. Your mattress will usually be shipped within 24 hours, which is good. You’ll usually receive it in around 2-7 days, which is OK. But, you can’t pre-book a specific delivery day like you can with many online mattress brands, which isn’t so good.
That said, they do give you full tracking details and the mattress is delivered in a box, so it’s possible your neighbour can take it in if you’re not home when it arrives.
Returns are carried out with the 100-night trial. What’s unusual is that the trial period is longer than the warranty period (which is only 3 months – around 90 days).
That means you basically just get a trial period and no warranty. If something goes wrong within your 100-nights, just get in touch with HomyLink to request a replacement or refund.
Pricing & Overall Value For Money
At the time of conducting our HomyLink mattress review, the prices for the four types of mattress were as follows:
- Single = £129
- Small Double = £169
- Double = £175
- King = £205
- Single = £156
- Small Double = £170
- Double = £197
- Single = £159
- Small Double = £205
- Double = £199
- King = £220
- Single = £182
- Double = £249
As you can see, not all HomyLink mattresses are available in all sizes. That will clearly only be a disadvantage if they happen not to have the mattress you want in the size you need.
Overall, the prices of HomyLink are considerably less than comparable brands. That’s partly due to a lesser quality (hence the short warranty period) but it’s also because they don’t spend big on advertising campaigns.
HomyLink Review – Summary
So, it’s time for the closing remarks of HomyLink mattress review. Is this budget-price mattress brand worth considering?
Well, in one word, yes. But if you need a few more words, here’s what we really think.
Make no mistake about it, you’ll struggle to find a better mattress for the money. In fact, it’s really rare to find any decent mattresses for under £250 but HomyLink have bucked the trend.
There’s plenty of technology in each mattress and a lot of thought has clearly gone into each of the four versions available. The 100-night trial makes it an easy decision to at least give it a chance, particularly if you’re on a tight budget.
However, we think it’s fair to say you can expect you might have to replace it sooner than you would many of the more expensive mattresses. That’s reflected in the short 3-month warranty period (compared to 10-year warranty many other online mattress brands offer).
That said, you could buy two or three HomyLink mattresses before you’ve spent the same as you would with most of the more well-known brands. That means the value for money is still very much there with this brand, even if the quality isn’t as high.
All things considered, HomyLink definitely has a place in the market. If you want the best mattress you can buy for under £250, HomyLink is probably the place to go.
