Hypnos Balmoral Medium Review
The Hypnos Balmoral Medium is an outstanding mattress that holds the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship. It is Australian made and is simply one of the best mattresses on the market.
Purchase and delivery
The Hypnos Balmoral range can be purchased through the Beds n Dreams website or at any of their 30 plus stores Australia-wide. Delivery costs will depend on your location, but a typical delivery cost to a metropolitan area is $80.
This version forms the ‘medium’ feel option in the Balmoral range. This collection also includes a firm version and a plush (soft) version. King and super king size mattress can also be specially ordered with different firmness levels on each side (e.g. firm on one side and medium on the other).
The mattress arrived in a two piece, sturdy cardboard box, along with 2 thick plastic wrappings. Once these were removed, it revealed a lovely Hypnos fabric ‘bedwrap’ that definitely sets the vibe.
From the outside, the Hypnos Balmoral Medium gives off a clear message – that being one of luxury and opulence. It sits 42cm high and uses a grey and white colour theme. It’s hard not to notice the exquisite stitching and embroidery.
The Hypnos ‘God of Sleep’ medallion gives the mattress a magnificent touch of class, as do the nickel border air vents. The handles contain a product number, and you can even request your name to be embroidered on the handles.
Comfort and support
The top comfort layer of this mattress starts with a premium cover made of a silk yarn and a cashmere/wool blended fibre. This cover has been treated with Virase to help minimise the spread of viral infections.
Underneath this cover lies an assortment of premium foams that includes graphite memory foam, hospital high grade foam, and stamina foam. In addition, this comfort section includes a layer of mini pocket springs to enhance body contouring.
This top comfort layer feels luxurious and expensive, but also has a dense and supportive feel. It absorbs body weight smoothly and we certainly didn’t detect any sinking or sagging.
This mattress should suit all sleeping positions (side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers) but understandably, its suitability will vary between individuals. Our team rated it a 6.5 / 10 on the firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest).
Please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort. Furthermore, our firmness ratings are assigned based on Bedbuyer’s testing process and these may differ from firmness ratings given by individual companies.
One of the most defining features of the Hypnos Balmoral Medium is its European 9 zone pocket spring system. This support structure feels incredibly robust and will easily accommodate people of all sizes. It offers superb back support and should maintain the spine in a healthy position during sleep.
The Hypnos Balmoral Medium responds nicely to normal sleep movements and we rated its level of responsiveness in the ‘optimal’ zone. In basic terms, this means that changing sleep positions (and intimate activities) shouldn’t be any trouble.
Please note that our responsiveness scales are just a guide and preferred responsiveness levels will vary between individuals. It’s worth noting also that innerspring mattresses are generally more responsive than foam mattresses.
The finer details
There is no doubt that the overall build quality of this mattress is exceptional. The finishings and embroidery are first class, and the fabrics are of high quality.
Edge support is excellent thanks to the full, high definition foam box around the main (9 zone) spring system. It’s worth noting also that the top comfort layer (pillow top) has a foam box to further enhance edge support.
Partner disturbance is noticeable, but certainly not significant. Naturally though, motion transfer will vary depending on the mattress size and the size of the occupants of the bed.
All foams used in this mattress are certified as eco-friendly and non-toxic by GECA.
All foams used in this mattress are certified as eco-friendly and non-toxic by GECA, so you can feel safe bringing this product into your home. This mattress also comes with an impressive a 15 year warranty.
What bed base should I use?
We do not recommend this mattress to be used on a bed base with flexible (posture) slats as this will not provide adequate support. Use of an unsupportive mattress foundation will usually void the mattress warranty.
It’s worth noting here that mattress firmness, performance, and durability will vary with different bed bases.
The Hypnos Balmoral Medium is available in all 7 sizes (super king, king, queen, double, king single, long single, and single) so it should suit all adult sleeping situations.
