Mattresses Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of mattress would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Worst mattress, much better options out there.
Brought it for a temporary replacement and wish I had saved my money for something better. This is a terrible mattress in all regards and would only be worth it for a cheap mattress for a spare bed that rarely gets used but even then there are much better options.
For some unknown reason it is also noticeably smaller than a regular queen mattress in both length and width.
Maybe the people giving 5 stars are paid?
Terrible horrible worst matress ever! My parents have one of these and i want to call it a total piece of sh!# matress. all i can say is horrendous kidney and lower back pain, side pain, shoulder pain and our heads feel like they dip down. its just rubbish. We now tip the bed and frame up and sleep on a couple of foam mats on the carpet over this thing. it is especially bad in the middle of the matress where i suspect it was folded? Im not sure as i didnt buy it thank god. If i did i would be soaking it in petrol and watching it burn in an aldi carpark, It absolutely ruins our holiday trips to family and all of my siblings hate sleeping on it.
No Partner Disturbance
Great quality. Was waking in the night from my wife rolling over. This mattress is fantastic for fixing that problem. No partner disturbance at all. A little firmer than Im used to but great back support. For the price it's amazing value. Will get the kids one when they're next in store.
Sleeping on a cloud
We bought these for our children who were complaining their current mattresses were uncomfortable. After leaving them to "inflate" for 2 days west them up. They were not heavy to carry and our holder. Say it is like sleeping in a cloud! I had to test the theory and felt like I was in a marshmallow. They are very well made and we are so pleased with our purchase.
Despite my doubts, I was needlessly sceptical. It is excellent.
The Posturepedic mattress was giving both my wife and I severe lower backache no matter our sleeping positions. Darling daughter raved about her new Tempur mattress but I could not justify the huge expenditure. Aldi advertised Queen sized Estelle at $249 and thinking that it was an acceptable risk, I was prepared to buy, try, and ditch it if it was not acceptable.
The hard part was dragging it out of the store. It is heavy and awkward, but the wheels helped. Unpacking it was hilarious as as soon as it was unboxed and the outer plastic removed i...
Purchased in February 2019 for $249.00.
This is a great bed! Great value for money!
Much more comfortable than the Koala bed in a box due to extra pillow top on the mattress. The bed is exceptional value at $250.00 No nasty smell on opening!
Purchased in July 2019 at Rosemeadow NSW for $250.00.
A lot better then my expectations
We bought this thinking we don't need to spend over $2000 like we always did, thinking we'll get this and replace it again within couple of years?. It's not soft or hard, JUST right with the pillow top,that doesn't boil me like the expensive mattress we use to use, we both are very satisfied with our purchase, will recommend it .

Very comfortable mattess, luxury
ALDI have done it again.
There memory foam mattress is pure luxury and comfort.
I’m having the best nights sleep I have ever had.
I have a back/ neck problem caused from a MVA. And last year tore the meniscus in both knee’s. As a result I am in constant pain.
Not any more.
I purchased and put this mattress over a thin budget Harvey Norman mattress.
And it is amazing.
So snuggly it fits the curves of my body, in turn taking the pressure off.
I wake relaxed and pain free. I love it and completely recommend this ALDI mattress.
I purchased it in 2019.
Purchased in June 2019.
Great, cheap mattress albeit being very stiff. Very little padding. We bought a foam mattress topper to put on top of it because it was too firm for us. It's awesome now with that on top and still worked out cheaper than buying a new mattress from a mattress shop.

Amazing and great price
We bought this for our 4 year old for $149 we were abit skeptical at first but its amazing! Very comfortable and plump, amazing price compared to other leading brands
Purchased in July 2019 at Aldi for $149.00.
Way better than expected!!
I have back issues and I honestly have noticed such an improvement in my quality of sleep since buying the mattress. I did read the reviews on here before purchasing because I was skeptical with the price only being $250 but honestly I would have paid a lot more for a mattress of this quality. The other reviews are correct, the sides are a little soft, but that’s understandable and I’m not one to sit on the side/end of the bed anyway. I would definitely consider it medium to hard. More on the medium side though. It was super easy to take home and to unravel and it didn’t smell at all. All in all I think this mattress is a steal at $250!
Purchased in April 2019 for $250.00.

Great product for a reasonable price.
Good product, reasonable price and very easy to transport home. It’s comfortable for an adult, perfect for kids, My weigh is 90 kg.and feels ok for me, not super firm but medium to firm.
Purchased in March 2019 for $152.90.
Comfortable and cheap
My budget for a mattress was actually around $1500 however I picked one of these up for $250 more out of convenience and the good reviews. I really hate sales people, and trying to arrange to get things delivered so this worked out well. You can wheel the box to the checkout on its end so it doesn't take much room, and fits in a hatchback mazda 3.
I had to leave it for 3 days out on the balcony to allow the new foam smell to go away. Some people will be more sensitive to this than others. The mattress has firm springs with soft foam layer. I...found the mattress really comfortable and getting a good sleep. My only complaint is that the side walls of the mattress don't have enough support, if you sit on the edge of the bed it will naturally push you off. If you want to save money then this is good for you, otherwise I think AusBeds mattress looks good and would be supporting an Aussie company.
Incredible value for money!
Writing this after having slept on the Estelle for only one night, but I am confident that we will be just as happy after 100 nights (I will update if not!)
Have been wanting to upsize to a king for a few months (or years, even) having bought the king size sheets a year or so ago, but it took longer to take the plunge with the mattress.
As luck would have it, this week (from 9th March) these mattresses came on special at Aldi. And luckier still, on Sunday 10th, there was just one king sized left in our local store! It was meant to be!
It’...s a hefty box, but luckily comes with a sturdy handle and wheels so we were able to wheel it home the two blocks to ours. I was intrigued as to how a bed in a box would transform. There is an outer layer of plastic which maintains the rolled shape, and once that has been unrolled, the final layer is what keeps it compressed. It is truly incredible to watch the mattress inflate in a matter of minutes!
Seems to be good value!
Bought the mattress this morning around 11am. Opened it immediately once home. No weird smell from the memory foam topper (very common sometimes) and it expanded very quickly. By 3pm we laid on it and my husband who has severe hip pain commented it had lessened already after a only half hr lie down! and he has suffered this for months now.I have severe back issues but i too found it comfortable albeit slightly too firm. Its around 6 out of 10 for firmness i would say. But for $250 for a queen with a 60 day return you havent anything to lose!
So glad I made the purchase.
Very sceptical about the whole mattress in a box situation, unable to try before you buy, and how would you return if didn’t like it.
Been looking for a mattress for a while, but very expensive in stores. Needed something firm as old mattress sagging, trampoline effect as they say, big dip in the middle, causing sore shoulders.
Saw in the Aldi catalogue very cheap.
So read up on reviews and even found some YouTube videos about the mattress.
Based on the reviews and videos decided to give it a go. And I’m so glad I did. ...Box is heavy, but has a handle and wheels to make it easy to pull around. Easy to pull out of the box and unwrap. Such a treat to watch the compressed mattress inflate. It is a firm mattress to my liking but still has a softness due to the top layer. Even better with a mattress topper from Kmart. Bought this morning. And have already had an afternoon nap on it. Very comfortable. I can’t believe this mattress came out of a box. I bought a double for myself. Parents also looking to update their mattress. Tried mine and bought themselves a queen mattress straight away. I think just as good as some expensive mattresses. Great price great value! Very happy with purchase!
Best mattress we have ever bought. Over years have spent thousands tried Aldi mattress for 249.00 in
It’s the best mattress we have ever bought, my husband a heavy man but no movement when he rolls, Two years down the track still excellent I need to buy more and price fantastic
A Surprise Mattress in a Box 2018 :-)
First..compared to brands Koala and Ecosa etc the purchase price was as cheap as chips for a QS mattress in-a-box!
Second..heavy item but excellent boxing with wheels to cart around from purchase to make it easy.
Third...didn't take overly long to expand after releasing from the compressed packaging.
Fourth..first sleep was AB FAB compared to our 10yo ultra expensive Sealy inner spring mattress with topper. We are medium soft sleepers. I don't handle a hard mattress and I love it.
Fifth...I should have bought another for our spare bed but o...
Purchased the aldi mattress in a box.. For the spare room .its so comfortable and supportive. That our guests are shocked to discover its aldi..
Unfortunately. We now have to wait for the sale to return to purchase another mattress
Totally recommend this product
Absolutely perfect & very comfortable
Right from buying it from Aldi this purchase was amazing. Not only cheap $199 for DS but the box had wheels on it for easy transportation
It fitted in the boot of my car to take to my daughters & the pillow top was to so comfortable.
This is a great product.
