Where to find mattress reviews you can trust


The best sources of trustworthy Bed in a Box reviews

The bed-in-a-box revolution has made buying a mattress online quick and easy. At Sleep Republic, we provide a free 100-night trial with free delivery and free returns so you don’t need to trawl through other’s opinions, you can form your own for free.

However, if you’d prefer to do some homework first, here’s a selection of websites that provide trustworthy mattress reviews online.

NB: Consumer watchdog the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission warns that not all online product reviews are legitimate, and you should use your discretion when relying on them.

Trusted sources of reviews

Happy family on mattress giving thumbs up


  • Canstar Blue is one of Australia’s most trusted sources of online product ratings. They conduct professional market research asking average Australians how they rate their experience with over 800 providers or brands across over 100 products and services.
  • Choice is an independent and member-funded consumer advocacy group that has been around for 60 years campaigning for consumer rights, testing products and providing unbiased reviews.

Other sources of reviews

  • ProductReview is one of the most popular review sites used by Australians, with over 4 million visitors a month. It allows users to comment on businesses and give a star rating, and includes mattress reviews.
  • Google seller ratings and reviews appear next to Google search listings. Google says it uses automated spam detection measures to remove reviews that are probably spam.

Independently verified reviews

At Sleep Republic, we’re proud to host hundreds of independently verified customer mattress reviews on our website for you to read.

We don’t have an issue with our customers telling it like it is because if you’re not happy with our mattresses, we’ll fix it.

Simply contact us within the first 100 days after purchase and we’ll collect it free of charge, refund you and either donate the mattress to charity or recycle it.

Examples of Sleep Republic reviews

Here’s a selection of some of our customer feedback:

“Couldn’t be happier with our purchase of base, mattress and sheets.” – Barb D

“A bit firm for me but service from delivery to collection and the build quality is quite outstanding. After the really great way the company answered my pre purchase questions, delivered quickly, and the high quality of the mattress I so desperately wanted to love this mattress. So sad it was a bit too firm for me but true to their word they arranged collection by Salvation Army without any fuss or delay and refunded promptly. I would recommend trying them nothing to lose and the experience was very positive – wish all companies could treat customers this way. hope they live long and prosper!” – K.V.

“Received the Sleep Republic queen size mattress within a week from ordering as it had to be delivered to Far North QLD. Arrived in good order & found unpacking very easy … This is the first mattress we have found that seems to suit us both” – Susan M

“I was extremely impressed with their prompt and friendly responses and overall terrific customer service.” – Corrin. B

“Was sceptical at first both buying online and a mattress ‘in a box’. Absolutely happy with both the mattress itself, and the prompt, courteous, professional service.” – Darren

Received our mattress and base with same day delivery! We are so happy with how comfortable the bed is.” – Sarah G

“Bought the queen mattress bundled with the bed base, sheets and mattress protector. Terrific value at less than $2k for the lot with delivery. Mattress is exactly what I was hoping for; I have back trouble so firmer is perfect for me, but it’s got the right amount of cushioning with the foam layers. Bed base is simple and solid – much easier to assemble with some help, though. Good quality mattress protector that still lets the bed breathe, great for anyone who overheats. The sheets are amazing – couldn’t believe how soft they were. Delivery was very quick, only issue was the handle breaking off the mattress box which complicated moving it around. Otherwise everything was perfect.” – Minerva L

Why our customers are so happy

At Sleep Republic we’ve been in the mattress business for more than 20 years, and over 20 per cent of our customers are either repeat or are referred to us by existing customers.

Our high-quality mattresses contain both pocket springs and gel-infused memory foam, lined with anti-allergenic natural latex and covered with knitted cashmere for comfort. This creates the perfect hybrid mattress experience.

The result is a medium/firm feel that is comfortable yet supportive. Not too soft, not too hard; the best of both worlds. And all our mattresses come with a 12-year warranty.

We offer free same-day delivery for orders received before midday in most major metropolitan areas, and we’ll deliver anywhere in Australia provided one of our freight and courier agencies can reach you.

You can buy now from Sleep Republic and pay later with Zip Money and Afterpay, too!
