We know that for many of our guests there’s nothing more important than a good night’s sleep and that’s why we decided to invest in some brand new beds!
However, there’s more to this new era of comfort than meets the eye because, to us, cosiness is a science. Our new beds weren’t just picked out of a catalogue on a whim. No, these beds have been chosen as a result of intensive and thorough bed testing.
Under lab-like conditions, some of our hardest-working, most dedicated and sleepy team members spent a gruelling afternoon napping tirelessly evaluating the merits of eight different mattresses. The tests were extensive and exhausting but our team persevered, we’ve highlighted a couple of the key variables below…
This classic test is as effective today as it has ever been and it needs no explanation.
Story Time Test
This test is simple. One test subject lies in bed while another reads to them (in their best Morgan-Freeman-voiceover-esque voice) and the time taken to fall asleep is recorded.
Two test subjects lie on the bed and then examine how easy it is to steal the lion’s share of mattress real estate, leaving their partner clinging to a tiny slither at the edge of the mattress. Also known as the Starfish Test.
After careful analysis of our results, the best bed was chosen and the order was placed.
Every single room now comes complete with brand new spring loaded softness.
