- Plush Queen
Was skeptical until I slept on it!
I was skeptical about this bed because of the reviews, however after finding out that they offer a 90 sleep guarantee I thought I would cut my losses and try it. The guy at Forty Winks offered me a decent deal on it too which was great!! It is honestly THE BEST mattress that I have slept on ever. It is so comfy and cozy!
I have never spent money well until I bought this mattress!! It is perfect for me and my wife. She has an illness which means she gets chronic pain and this bed is perfect for her. If you need a bed go to this!
Purchased in August 2019 at Forty Winks for $3,500.00.
DO NOT PURCHASE Worst mattress EVER!!!!
Worst decision I have EVER made. I purchased the medium mattress and woke up everyday complaining of a sore back. I have never had any back issues previously. I rang the company and Complained and they said they could change it to the plush. I paid another $500 (through Forty Winks Thomastown who were terrible to deal with) thinking I was doing the correct thing. 6 months later I am worse off and have a severe issue with my back due to the poor quality of mattress. I have now purchased a new mattress and have felt a huge difference. I’ve learnt a lesson. Research and review everything you purchase And don’t believe sales people.

Overpriced piece of sh*t!
Haven’t even had it for a year and and there is sagging! When you pay over 3k for a mattress, you expect it to last a lot longer than 10 months.
3 years on and this mattress is still great
We bought this mattress 3 years ago from
Forty winky and we still love it. Has no sagging and it’s still extremely comfortable. The only criticism is that the mattress is very high and on my frame with drawers underneath the bed looks too tall

Sagging and body indentations after a few weeks.
Purchased the silent partner without reading reviews - huge regret! It's the most uncomfortable mattress and created two significant body indentations where we sleep within weeks. We aren't heavy people, both weigh less than 80kg. It feels like we are sleeping in trenches, it's event difficult to roll into the middle - feels like rolling up hill! It's been rotated regularly but the sagging has gotten worse. I've emailed the store to see if there is any compensation but we anticipate purchasing another mattress to replace it after less than 2 years with the Bellagio.
Purchased in June 2018.
Happy with mattress so far!
Purchased the Bellagio medium after trying it in store. It was the most comfortable mattress we tried in store and purchased it without reading reviews! Freaked out a little when I read the reviews but the mattress has been good so far. It is much more comfortable than our old mattress. Definitely don't notice husband turning over anymore and mattress is comfortable. It Is a lovely thick mattress that looks and feels good. Would perhaps like it to be slightly firmer hence 4 not 5 stars but overall we are happy and I would recommend this mattress.

Very uncomfortable, sink too far into the mattress, far too soft. Turning around in bed you need to almost sit up to turn. Haven't had a decent night sleep since purchase

Total waste of money. Avoid avoid avoid
We continue to search for a good reliable mattress in Australia. Being from the USA, we have been surprised at the difficulty in finding a very good mattress, readily available in the USA. Further, we find that the individual names of mattresses here are conveniently altered regularly to confuse the consumer. Anyway, we paid a few thousand dollars for this Belaggio matress purchased from Harvey Norman. After two weeks, sent it back to AH Beard, who charged another $500 to make the mattress "firmer". When returned, no difference, since too soft ...after a couple weeks with sagging, and uncomfortably hot. We had the mattress removed and moved onto to yet another Australia made mattress! Still searching for a good and reliable mattress with honest reviews available. We are constantly amazed at "new" named mattresses having no reviews or 1 or 2 reviews, the source of which has to be questioned! Good luck!

Best investment ever
Best sleep ever and waking up feeling refreshed with no pain or aches. Me and my partner have always struggled to get a good night sleep but this mattress was truly the best investment we ever did. We were skeptical reading the bad reviews but glad we got the mattress anyway. The quality is undeniable. It's thick, heavy, firm but perfectly plush at all the right places.

Best bed I have had for a very long time
Medium to Firm . Still in great shape after 18 months. Try one to see if it suits you. It's 5 stars from me. So much better than some well known brands.

Firm and fantastic
After reading a few bad reviews about this mattress, I thought long and hard before buying it. In Forty Winks I had done the computerised bed chooser test, and the lovely sales lady had taken me to lie on all the mattresses that were listed for my firmness requirements. I chose the Bellagio, because it really did feel the best in the shop, even though I only lay on it for a few minutes. Back at home, with our new mattress, we could not be happier. It is firm but plush and really quite dreamy.
I do recommend this mattress, but do make sure that you chose the correct firmness for you needs.

Firm is fabulous
Heavy firm brilliant make, great price, nice and high, comfort level 100, couldn’t have picker any better, and the price is unbeatable. Forty winks Penrith know exactly what suits as soon as you walk in the door

The McDonalds of mattresses
It's the McDonalds of mattresses -- it seems delicious at first, but in reality it's bad for your health. My girlfriend bought the Plush version of this mattress back in January. She said she tried it in the shop and we were SUPER excited for the delivery arrival. We literally counted down the days (and it was a week late). But after the first night of sleeping on it we both knew we had made a huge mistake. The mattress is very soft i will give it that. It's comfy to sit on. When you first lie down it is comfy for a few minutes. The problem com...es with the back support. The mattress sags SO MUCH that it is actually laughable. Your hips sag into the middle of the mattress. Your body is in this weird angle the whole night. Since you are subtly falling into the middle all night, your back feels tense in the morning because it has been subtly trying to hold you up all night. Keep in mind i am a fit 31 year old man and my GF is 28. We don't have any physical issues, and the mattress gives us both an uncomfortable back in the morning. Also, since your shoulders sag into the mattress easily, it creates this scenario where your arm looses blood flow because they are lying across an uneven surface (because your weight creates such a big dip/hole in the mattress). Do you like watching movies on the laptop while lying down on your stomach? Forget that, unless you want to sit in a position bent like a taco for the whole movie. Your spine bends backwards too much because your hips sag so far down. Also, your elbows create these chasms in the mattress. We were super upset that we invested so much money in it. The mattress in the store didn't seem to sag as much. Forty Winks offer an 90-day exchange with other Silent Partner models so we are waiting for a new mattress to get delivered. Wish we never invested in this brand though. Feeling very stupid for this decision. Could've used the 3 grand on something way better, like a new computer or a car. I wish we read reviews before purchasing something so expensive. The mattress retail industry is very flawed in this way, you cannot truly know how your body will react to a mattress until you actually sleep on it for a night. There's no way to truly test a mattress by just lying on it for 2 minutes in a shop with clothes on. There really needs to be more buyer protection.

Sleeping on the floor would be more comfortable
We had the med they said it would get softer so we waited then we paid extra to have to turned into a plush it is worse then it was before first night was in so much pain second night can barely walk
Have called and called they don’t seem to want to know about it ....still waiting for a call back

- Bellagio Medium
After testing many beds we kept comparing them to this bed. To me this was a sign that we really liked the Bellagio. My main concern was the reviews on this site, but I decided that I liked the feel of it so we took the risk. Everyone is always quick to write about how bad a product is but I thought I would do the opposite. This mattress is comfortable, has great edge support and I no longer wake up with pain in my back. I find it quite interesting when people mention about beds losing shape! In my opinion, if you sleep in the one spot over and...over on any mattress, just like a couch, the foam shape will change over time, it's inevitable! My opinion is that I love it and I don't regret my purchase at all! Everyone is different so trust your own instinct!
- Bellagio Plush
I did not expect to be writing a review like this
I purchased Bellagio Plush because it seemed the most comfortable in store. But at home things were different. Right from the start, it sagged far more than expected. I hadn’t noticed that in store at all. The mattress was still comfortable and plush and I slept really well, but after 4 months the real issue is that it may be impeding blood flow to my legs. I had no such issue before but various aspects of discomfort are now occurring. To check, I switched to sleeping in my guest bed. The issues have gone away. I'm an athletic person, normal BM...I, train regularly. I'm perplexed. So for me, this mattress doesn't suit. Maybe it's just me, Maybe it's because I'm a side sleeper. Others may fare much better. It's certainly a quality product which I'm sure will suit many.
Terrible mattress waste of money
Spent nearly 2.6k on this mattress in the hope of it could relieve my back pain as my old one is not supporting my back anymore.
Read these bad reviews when tried to make up my mind to buy it, but was convinced by the good review. Now truely regret my decision.
Every morning waking up with a sore back and it doesn't support you at all. What's funny is some spot supports my back but if I move to a different spot, I lost my back support.
There is sag even though I rotate it as per the instruction.
Waste of money, don't buy it.
Threw it out after a year
The mattress lost its support after a few months and sagged badly in the centre. I tried to persevere but waking up with back spasms eventually forced me to throw it out which really upset me given how expensive it was.
Swapped my med to a plush (part2)
I finally swapped my medium bellagio for a plus one after the 90 day satisfaction period only to be dissatisfied. I swapped to the plush from the medium because the medium was to hard but even the plush, although it is softer, im still waking up nearly everyday with a sore back. Also waking up during the night uncomfortable. I will say though forty winks were fantastic in organising the swap. I had read ppl had issues in trying to swap and also had to pay huge differences but they were really good, and we only had to pay $70 diff (no delivery as we picked it up). So great service but terrible bed.
Questions & Answers
Need a recommended tight fitting king single bottom sheet as all I have purchased slip off the edges. I have 2 king single mattresses on an adjustable base.
Hi Veronica, I also have a King Single adjustable bed, I buy my sheets from 'Adairs' in Toowoomba Qld, if you ring there Warehouse number 1300783005, you will not be dissapointed....Regards Ria
Thank you RiaI will do this. Cheers
I got deep base 50cm x 1500 thread count from My Deal and would stay on better I would say. Don’t get caught like me. They said sheet set. I am old and a sheet set was always top/bottom sheets and 2 cases. This came with fitted sheet and 2 cases. So I bought the same in complete set and now have 4 cases and 2 bottoms and one top. Lots of people don’t use top sheet but doona cover. Good luck.
We have the medium in a king it’s been 3 months and is still feeling a little firm, but does offer great back support! Side sleeper. We wanted to swap for the plush but were worried in time it would get too soft and feel too hot. Didn’t know what to do! I think the medium will feel better in a few more months, has anyone had one for that long? Plush may not be good in the long run although it felt nice in the shop. The Shop assistant did mention to have a loose sheet on the bed as that affects the firmness.
We exchanged for a different bed and had to pay to reupholster it. Couldn’t sleep in it, it was hot and uncomfortable from the feel of the foam. It had a very dense feel to it which didn’t feel light and airy to sleep in. It did have good back support though and didn’t sag but we only had for a short while.
It really is down to personal preference as to risks with any bed. I love the plush feel. It will flatten not doubt a bit over time but its incredibly comfy & good spinal support underneath. Esp good for arthritis - the softness. I dont sink into it though yet still experience a gorgeous cloud like feel. Only time can tell with any mattress style unfortunately. I do agree though with other reviews re heat retention is a bit of an issue. Will be ok in winter but summer was a tad warm but not overly problematic for me. Good luck!
