I’m the chief writer at WhatMattress. I always set out to write from a different perspective to most other review websites; I try to remain as impartial as possible and my reviews & comments are always 100% genuine (and my own).
Along with my co-writers, I am not influenced by any particular company, and if a mattress company receives bad press I will write about it (and have)…!
In short: I and my co-writers try to make sure that you value our mattress guidance, and that we are as honest as we can possibly be.

History of WhatMattress
I started writing about my experiences of buying a mattress (and bed) back in 2018, on my personal blog. Frustratingly, perhaps, nobody really cared about my life story or day-to-day happenings. The most-visited page was a review I wrote on a particular mattress company and why I wasn’t happy. Since that fateful post, a lot has changed. I’m now mostly spending all my spare time writing about mattresses – yes, I know, sad!
But it is something that many of us Brits clearly struggle with. There are so many buzzwords that the industry doesn’t really help itself. I set about to try to change that, one small step at a time. If you want to get in touch, for whatever reason, please use the Contact page.
FAQs about WhatMattress
- Are you connected to any mattress company or supplier?
NO, NO and finally NO! I am just a regular person who set up this website after being frustrated at the process of buying a new mattress and realising I was not the only one (see above).
- How do I know I can trust your research?
I could give you a long-winded answer but ultimately: you can’t. But my blog has been written about, tweeted about, and commented about hopefully enough by now that someone, somewhere would have “outed” me if I was not genuine. I try to be honest, upfront and reasoned wherever I can be.
- How do I get in touch?
Please see my ‘Contact’ page.
- Do you make any money from this website?
I may generate a small bit of money if you click one of the discount codes listed on this website and then go on to purchase something. This is the only money I make from this website. I don’t get paid to write about mattress companies or products and they certainly don’t tell me what to write. All of the content ideas are my own.
- Can I send you a free sample/product for testing?
Yes, please contact me using the ‘Contact’ form linked above.
- Do you do link exchanges/sponsored articles?
NO. Please do not waste your time.
