Looking for a Simba mattress sale or deal? We have good news and bad news. The good news is that there's a sale on at Simba right now, but the bad news is that the discounts are quite disappointingly small. Right now there's 25% off selected Simba mattresses, which is substantially less than the 40% off we saw for most of the last year. 

While a few other UK sleep brands have reduced their discounts recently, that's been accompanied by an RRP drop, meaning that you end up paying more or less the same for most of the best mattresses. Not so at Simba, though; the discount's smaller but the RRPs are the same, and that means higher prices. It's not ideal but we're interested to see what happens price-wise over the next few weeks.

Simba is one of the UK's leading mattress brands, with an extensive range of hybrids and all-foam mattresses, so there should be the perfect choice for just about everyone. It's also a certified B-Corp, which isn't something you see with a lot of brands, and it works hard to reduce emissions and ensure that its mattresses are 100% recyclable.

Simba's beds come with a 200-night risk-free trial period, so if you change you mind, Simba will collect your mattress and refund you; there's also a 10-year guarantee. So then, let's take a look at the best Simba mattress sales and deals available right now...

Simba Hybrid mattress deals

Hybrid mattresses combine springs and foams to bring you the best of both worlds. Simba makes some of the best hybrid mattresses around. There are options at a range of price points, but they're all a bit more expensive than the Simba all-foam mattresses. 

Simba Hybrid Original Mattress: £799 £599.25 at Simba

Simba Hybrid Original Mattress: was £799 now from £599.25 at Simba
The second-cheapest hybrid in Simba's range is the original. It has all the same layers as the cheapest Hybrid Essential, but an extra layer that's designed to ensure support right up the the edges of the mattress, so there's no dipping at the sides. In our Simba Hybrid Original review, our tester called it an 'almost-perfect modern hybrid'. The current deal is on the version with the standard cover, and knocks 25% off, taking the cost of a double down to £809.25. If you want the Stratos cover, hang on because that one should get a discount before long. 

The Simba Hybrid retails in Canada as the Simba 2500 Mattress. You can buy it in a queen size for $2,049.

Simba Hybrid Pro: £1,159 £869.25 at SimbaSimba 5000 Pro Flex Mattress

Simba Hybrid Pro: was £1,159 now from £869.25 at Simba
Sitting in the middle of the Hybrid lineup, the Hybrid Pro is our favourite in the Simba range. Here, there's a seven-layer design that adds a temperature-regulating layer of wool beneath the top cover, and an extra layer of AeroCoil springs (up to 5,000 in total) for superior support, neither of which you'll find in the original. Find out more in our Simba Hybrid Pro mattress review, which praises the mattress' temperature regulation and pressure relief. With this deal, a double is 25% off, discounted to £1,119.25, and you get a free mattress protector included, too. If you want the version with the cooling Stratos cover, hold on because Simba tends to alternate discounts.
This mattress is now on sale in Canada as the Simba 5000 Pro Flex Mattress. It's available for $2,299 in a queen size.

Simba Hybrid Luxe mattress: £1,579£1,184.25 at Simba

Simba Hybrid Luxe mattress: was £1,579 now from £1,184.25 at Simba
The Hybrid Luxe has a complex 10-layer design and promises outstanding comfort and support. Compared to the Pro, which is one down in terms of price, this mattress swaps out the regular wool for bamboo-infused wool (for improved temperature regulation and moisture control) and adds a tier of high-carbon steel springs. There are also extra layers of support foam. Our Simba Hybrid Luxe mattress review praised its luxe feel, support and temperature regulation, but noted a degree of motion transfer. The current deal is on the version without a cooling cover, and knocks 25% off, taking the double down to £1,724.25. (If you want the cooling cover, hold on, because Simba tends to alternate discounts between the two.) There's a free mattress protector with all sizes, too. 

Simba Hybrid Ultra mattress: £2,599 £1,949.25 at Simba

Simba Hybrid Ultra mattress: was £2,599 now from £1,949.25 at Simba
If the Simba Hybrid Luxe just isn't quite luxe enough for you, behold the new Simba Hybrid Ultra. It packs in a ludicrous 13 layers, including three layers of tiny Aerocoil springs and a deep layer of pocket springs, plus two layers of Simbatex foam, a cooling top layer made with wool, bamboo, kapok and charcoal, a support layer made with coconut and latex and honestly we've lost count by now. With prices starting at £2,599, this one's an excellent choice for anyone losing sleep because they're worried they have too much money, however there's 25% off right now, bringing the price of a double down to less horrifying £2,849.25. Do we need to mention that this is the one with the standard cover, rather than the cooling Stratos cover? Didn't think so.

Simba foam mattress deals

Simba's all-foam range is more affordable than its hybrids. They're a great choice for those on a budget. 

Simbatex Essential Foam: £399£299.325 at SimbaCheapest option –

Simbatex Essential Foam: was £399 now from £299.325 at Simba
Cheapest option – This bargain mattress has a simple, four layer design that includes a knitted cover (non-removable), layer of cooling Simbatex foam, and a zoned high-density foam base. It's a basic mattress but a good choice for a spare room or a youngster's bed, and it comes at a good price. With this deal, a double is £374.25; we've previously seen it as low as £299.40, but given Simba's new pricing we doubt we'll see it that cheap again any time soon.

Simba also makes some excellent pillows, and you can get 25% off all of them, as long as you're buying a mattress. We've tested a bunch of these and are always impressed. Check out our Simba Hybrid Firm pillow review for a look at an adjustable option. There are also 25% discounts on the Stratos pillow and Cooling Body Pillow. See our Simba Stratos pillow review and Simba Cooling body pillow review for all the facts.

Which Simba mattress should I choose? 

Simba's mattress range has expanded quite a bit of late: its original three mattresses are the Simba Hybrid (RRP from £679), the Hybrid Pro (from £1,089), and the Hybrid Luxe (from £1,279). All three original hybrids are available to buy in a variety of sizes, including European mattress sizes. 

The latest addition to the Simba mattress range is the Simba Hybrid Ultra, a 34cm whopper that boasts 13 layers and up to 8,500 springs, with prices starting at £2,599. Less recent additions to the Simba range include a cheaper hybrid option, the four-layered Simba Hybrid Essential from £749, the Simbatex Foam Mattress from £679 and its cheapest option, the Simbatex Essential Mattress, starting at £399.

You'll get a 1-year risk-free trial period on any Simba. If you change your mind during the trial period, Simba will refund your money and collect the mattress. Just make sure that you cover it with a good mattress protector, as otherwise you may not be able to return the mattress if it's covered in stains or is damaged.

The 25cm deep Simba Hybrid is a multiple award-winner, and is a feast of 2,500 titanium Aerocoil springs, high-definition Simba-Pure foam and a breathable sleep surface. The best Simba mattress deal we’ve seen recently on this is 41% off. 

It's a good entry-level hybrid, though if you want a very affordable all-foam alternative, read our Emma Mattress review too.

Next up is the Pro, a 28cm deep mattress that contains seven layers for additional support and comfort. Here you get 5,000 titanium Aerocoil springs, two deluxe spring-comfort layers, and temperature-regulating wool. 

So it’s packing more tech than the Hybrid and is the better choice if you want more support, added pressure relief and a little bounce. The biggest discount we spotted on this in 2022 was 41% off, equating to over £610 saved on the biggest size, making it one of the best mattress sales from Simba last year. Read our Simba Hybrid Pro mattress review to see what we thought of it during testing. Or check out our Simba Hybrid Original vs Simba Hybrid Pro mattress head-to-head, to see how the pricier model compares to its more affordable counterpart.

Until recently Simba's top-of-the-range mattress was the Simba Hybrid Luxe. With a depth of 31cm, this 11-layer Hybrid Luxeis able to house up to 5,000 25mm titanium Aerocoil springs and 1,000 40mm springs, delivering the ultimate in bounce, spinal support and breathability. Add in three spring-comfort layers, a thermal-regulating bamboo wool layer and a new sprung base replacing the old foam base layer, and this should suit hot sleepers and back and stomach snoozers. 

Impressive, but it's just been superseded by the new Simba Hybrid Ultra, which goes for broke with 13 layers, a depth of 34cm and Simba's highest ever spring count: up to 8,500 of them. There's also a new cooling top layer made with kapok, wool and bamboo, and the whole thing's 100% recyclable.

Simba also makes a range of bedding, including a weighted blanket, pillows, a mattress protector, and sheets. Check out our Simba Hybrid Firm pillow review or Simba 3-in-1 duvet review for a couple of examples.

1. Simba Hybrid mattress deals

The best Simba mattress for hybrid tech on a tight budget

Sizes: 9 (kids' to super-king) | Depth: 25cm | Turn: No | Filling: Foam and springs | Comfort: Medium-firm | Trial: 200 nights | Warranty: 10 years | Price bracket: Premium

Made with sustainably sourced materials
Breathable and comfy
Excellent range of sizes
Edge support could be better

12 industry awards tells you everything you need to know about the Simba Hybrid. Here's a medium-firm mattress that offers a high level of comfort and support at a cheaper price. This is the one we recommend to people who want to experience the benefits of a hybrid mattress (good back support, cooler sleep) but don’t have a big budget to play with. 

In the Simba mattress sale, you can normally pick up a double size Hybrid Original for £809.25 (was £1,079). That’s very competitive compared to similar hybrids, though it doesn’t quite beat the best Nectar mattress sales in terms of sheer value for money.

The Simba Hybrid original comprises five layers including a soft and breathable sleep surface, and a layer of open-cell Simba-Pure foam that's designed to keep you cool at night. A spring-comfort layer contains 2,500 patented titanium Aerocoil springs, which works with a layer of high-definition Simba-Pure foam with edge support. Keeping all of that in place is a zoned Simba-Pure support base.

Prices for the Simba Hybrid range from £399 for a kids' mattress (now £239.40 in the Simba mattress sale) to £1,109 for a super-king (£665.40). Simba regularly offers this mattress at a discount. For example, last year the UK company slashed a massive 50% off the price as part of its Amazon Prime Day sale, and there were also huge savings to be made in the 2020 Simba Black Friday sale – you can read more about that further down the page.

2. Simba Hybrid Pro mattress deals

A deeper Simba mattress for enhanced support and pressure relief

Sizes: 7 (single to super-king) | Depth: 28cm | Turn: No | Filling: Foam and springs | Comfort: Medium-firm | Trial: 200 nights | Warranty: 10 years | Price bracket: Premium

5,000 springs for added comfort
Relieves pressure across the back and hips
Wool layer regulates heat during sleep
You want a softer mattress

The Simba Hybrid Pro features seven carefully engineered layers that amount to a generous overall depth of 28cm. Helping you to drift away into a restful slumber are a soft, breathable sleep surface, complimented by a heat-regulating wool layer. 

Whereas the Hybrid Original packed in an admirable 2,500 coils, the Pro doubles down on comfort by housing over 5,000 patented titanium Aerocoil springs, open-cell. Those combined with high-definition Simba-Pure foam layers, plus a zoned Simba-Pure support base, mean you can expect higher levels of spinal support and full body comfort. 

Prices for the Simba Hybrid Pro range from £999 for a single (when not in the Simba mattress sale) to £1,519 for a super-king (now £911.40). Like the Simba Hybrid, the Pro model is regularly offered at a discount. In September it was on sale for 35% off, while the best deal we’ve seen on it recently would have saved you 41% if you were a new customer. 

We’d be surprised to see anything less than 35% off during the Simba Black Friday sale, but the current 40% off (45% when buying the Hybrid Pro are part of a bundle) is great value if you need a new mattress urgently. With its combination of quality and value, it's no wonder this medium-firm mattress scores five stars on the Simba site, generated from over 93,000 user reviews.

3. Simba Hybrid Luxe mattress deals

The best Simba mattress technology money can buy

Sizes: 4 (single to super king) | Depth: 31cm | Turn: No | Filling: Foam and springs | Comfort: Medium-firm | Trial: 200 nights | Guarantee: 10 years | Price bracket: Premium

10 layers for unbeatable all-body comfort
6,000 springs for maximum pressure relief
Heat-regulating bamboo wool layer
Perhaps too firm for lightweight bodies

Simba's top-of-the-range mattress promises a truly indulgent sleep experience, with ten layers nestled inside this 31cm deep hybrid. The Simba Hybrid Luxe features a soft, hypoallergenic knitted cover, a layer of heat-regulating bamboo wool, a total of 6,000 patented titanium Aerocoil springs, plus three Simba-Pure foam layers for the ultimate in body-cradling bliss. Out of the three, this is the best Simba mattress for hot sleepers and anyone dealing with night sweats and hot flashes.

There are two layers of 2,500 coils at the top of the Hybrid Luxe to ensure the mattress responds fast to each move you make in bed, keeping you comfy and relieving pressure through a range of sleeping positions. From our analysis of user reviews, back and stomach sleepers seem to enjoy it the most, and people with heavier bodies felt noticeable support and cradling without sinking too far in.

Prices for the Simba Hybrid Luxe range from £1,279 for a single (now £701.40 in the Simba mattress sale) to £2,299 for a super king. Seeing as the Hybrid Luxe was only launched last year, it's too early to say whether Simba will offer regular discounts on it but we expect so. We have already spotted deals offering between 35% and 41% off, so keep your eyes peeled for Simba Black Friday deals on this one.

4. Simbatex Foam mattress deals

An affordable and supportive all-foam mattress from Simba

Sizes: 5 (single to super king) | Depth: 25cm | Turn: No | Filling: Foam | Comfort: Medium-firm | Trial: One year | Guarantee: 10 years | Price bracket: Upper mid-range

Zoned support
Affordable option
Supportive for heavier bodies
Not the best edge support
Too firm for side sleepers

Another new addition to the Simba range, the Simbatex Foam Mattress features an four-layer, foam-only design. There are actually two versions available: the Simbatex Foam, and the even cheaper Simbatex Essential Foam mattress.

The Simbatex Foam mattress is affordable, but this doesn't mean Simba has cut any corners. Its Simbatex foam is said to provide 30 times more airflow than traditional memory foam, helping it to provide an impressively cool sleep experience. It's supportive with good motion isolation, however some may find it's just a little on the firm side.

Simba Black Friday deals 2024: our predictions

Many leading UK mattress brands take part in the holiday shopping season, and the Black Friday mattress sales tend to bring with them the lowest prices of the year (in the US, these roll into the Cyber Monday mattress deals, but that's not such a thing in the UK). 

Although mattress sales happen all year round, historically brands have saved their very best offers for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We've been tracking prices and reporting on these events for several years now, so what do we expect to see come the final weeks of November 2024? 

Based on what the brand has done in previous years, we expect (hope!) that in 2024, we'll see 45% off the hybrid models for Black Friday, although that might not mean cheapest-ever pricing, because it's fairly likely the RRP will have shifted by then. 

Simba Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress deals: Price history

Simba kicked off its Black Friday deal on 8 November 2023, with up to 55% off. In many cases, that translated as the cheapest prices we saw all year. Simba added a price promise that stated that prices wouldn't drop again in 2023, and if they did, the brand would refund the difference.

In 2023, the design of the hybrids also changed to include more springs and less foam, and RRPs rose slightly. It was also the year when Simba confused everything by adding alternative versions to its hybrids. As well the standard version, there was also a Stratos cooling cover version which cost marginally more (we're talking £10-£20), and the brand would only discount one version at once. 

In the 2023 Black Friday sales, the discounts were on the Stratos cover versions, making it difficult to compare like-for-like on previous years. Here's a look at the discounts for Black Friday 2023:

2023 Simba Black Friday prices
Header Cell - Column 0 Deal price (double)RRP (double)% discount
Hybrid Essential£494.45£89945% off
Hybrid Original + Stratos£598.95£1,08945% off
Hybrid Pro + Stratos£967.45£1,75945% off
Simbatex Essential£324.35£49935% off
Simbatex Foam£479.40£79940% off

In 2022, it was a similar offer. The Simba Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales delivered a 45% discount on the full range of mattresses (apart from the cheapest Simbatex, which was 40% off). The deal kicked in before Black Friday and ran until the end of the week of Cyber Monday. However, RRPs have shifted, so 45% off now isn't the same as 45% off now – generally you're paying a bit more now, which makes sense with inflation.

Price drops of 40% off or even 41% were common throughout 2022, but 45% off was an especially good deal. In 2022, the range was also expanded significantly to include both the eco-friendly Go, and the two cheaper foam-only models that were previously only part of the Amazon Simba range. 

In the 2021 Simba mattress Black Friday sale, the brand offered a 45% discount on all of its hybrid mattresses, plus 50% off mattress bundles. The sale launched on 14 November and remained unchanged until midnight on Cyber Monday. At the time, that was the best Simba sale of 2021. In 2020, the deal was lower, with 35% off all of Simba's mattresses. At the time, that was the best Simba sale of 2021.

Do you need a Simba mattress discount code?

When shopping directly with the brand, you do not need to input any Simba mattress discount codes. If you see any of the hybrids for sale on authorised third party retailer websites then you may need to enter a promo code depending on the terms and conditions published by that specific retailer.

On the Simba website, all you need to do is simply choose the hybrid you want and you’ll clearly see the before and the discounted price listed on the screen. So when you head to checkout, your 40% discount will automatically have been taken off the standard price for you. 

Simba makes a range of bedding too, including duvets, pillows, bed sheets, a weighted blanket and a high-tech mattress protector. For extra guidance on what type of coverage your bed needs, see our mattress protector vs mattress pad comparison feature.
