Zeek Original Mattress Review
The Zeek Original Mattress is has a nice, firm feel and offers good spinal support. It forms part of the Zeek mattress range that also includes a ‘hybrid‘ version (the Zeek Hybrid Mattress) and a kids mattress (the Zeek Bunk Mattress).
Purchase and delivery
As with other mattress in a box options, the Zeek Original Mattress can be conveniently ordered online through the Zeek website, and it will arrive at your door in a box (see delivery times in our ‘Delivery’ section further down).
Delivery is free, and as usual, we recommend having two people available to unpack this mattress from its box. You can see this mattress ‘closer up’ in Zeek’s product video here:
Visually, the Zeek Original Mattress presents nicely with a clean, funky look. It uses a grey and white colour theme, along with a splash of light blue. The Zeek brand label and hexagonal design (on the top cover) also give it a touch of sophistication.
Comfort and support
The Zeek Original Mattress has a Tencel fabric cover that is designed for ventilation and temperature regulation. This cover sits over a layer of ‘air foam’ and gel memory foam. These foam layers feel firm, but not hard – there is still a modest level of pressure relief.
The mattress should suit most back sleepers, but it may also accommodate some side sleepers and stomach sleepers. Understandably though, this suitability will vary between individuals.
Based on our testing, our team rated this mattress as a ‘firm’ feel and an 8 / 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.
The main support structure of this mattress consists of a ‘high density’ base layer. Although it doesn’t have the same level of responsiveness as other innerspring mattresses, it still feels sturdy and reliable.
These foam components offer good back support and should accommodate people of most sizes. We certainly didn’t detect any undesirable sinking or dipping.
As we alluded to, the Zeek Original Mattress doesn’t have the natural bounce and responsiveness of many innerspring mattresses. In basic terms, this means that changing sleep positions (and intimate activities) may be easier on other mattresses.
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
The overall build quality of the Zeek Original Mattress is very respectable. The mattress itself is relatively light, and should be easy to carry if necessary. The edges are soft, but this relates to its suitability on an adjustable bed base (discussed below).
You won’t be bothered by a restless partner on the Zeek Original Mattress. Partner disturbance is pretty much non existent, one of the advantages of a mattress with a ‘foam only’ construction.
The Zeek Original Mattress is certified as non-toxic by CertiPUR-US®, one of the world’s leading authorities in foam and fabric testing. It also offers a solid 100 night trial period and a 10 year warranty.
A well rounded, firm mattress that offers good value for money.
What bed base should I use?
As with most mattresses, we recommend the Zeek Original Mattress to be used with a solid bed frame (such as the Sleep Republic Pro Base), or a solid ensemble base (with the slats no longer than 8 cm apart).
A bed frame (with flexible slats) may still be adequate, but again, we strongly recommend that the distance between each slat is less than 8 cm. Use of an unsupportive mattress foundation will usually void the mattress warranty.
The Zeek Original Mattress is compatible with an adjustable (electric) bed base. With only a small number of bed in a box products with this compatibility, this is an appealing feature for those who love the versatility of an adjustable bed. Here is our full list of mattresses that are compatible with an adjustable bed base.
It’s worth noting here that mattress firmness, performance, and durability will vary with different bed bases.
This mattress is available in 6 sizes (king, queen, double, king single, long single, and single size) so it should accommodate most sleeping situations. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2021.
The Zeek Original Mattress is a well rounded, firm mattress that offers good value for money. Its compatibility on an adjustable base makes it more versatile than many of its competitors, and it also comes with a handy 100 night trial period.

This mattress has been specially designed to keep you cool during those sweaty Aussie summers. Using a very fancy foam called Air Foam and natural tencel to cover the mattress, these two materials work in tandem to naturally absorbs heat and cools it down. Now that’s super cool.
In the event of spills or stains, spot clean the area of your Zeek Hybrid Mattress with warm soapy water and a damp cloth. Avoid dry-cleaning fluids as these can damage the unit.
If your mattress is listed as “No-flip” then there is no need to flip your mattress. If it is not given this label, we recommend flipping your mattress on a monthly basis to extend its lifespan.
Do not smoke in bed or expose your mattress to any open flames. Do not bend, fold, or stand your mattress as this can permanently damage spring systems.
Body impressions over time are normal on the Zeek Hybrid Mattress as your mattress contours to your body shape.
