Very uncomfortable - would not recommend
Mattress is lumpy and sinks instead of supporting the spine. The surface material sticks to the body, making it hot and very hard to move around - takes a lot of effort to change position. It’s just not a comfortable mattress so it’s a struggle to relax and fall asleep, let alone getting a restful nights sleep.
The mattress I ended up with feels very different to the one I tried in the store. The 90 day comfort guarantee apparently only guarantees paperwork and a review!
Buy a mattress from a manufacturer that guarantees a full refund - don’t fall for the retail sales pitch like I did! Trying a mattress in a showroom is not the same as sleeping on it overnight.

Wouldn’t buy again
For reference, I’m not an old lady having a whinge! I’m 26 and 65kg. Sleep means a lot to me as I have three children. Sleep was promised when the salesman hooked me in to this bed! Well- it’s not, and I am quite disappointed for the $3000 I spent! When I brought it home, it seemed okay! It definitely sorted my back out for a while as I had been having problems with a crappy old mattress that had sagging. I sleep on my tummy or my back. It definitely didn’t feel as comfortable as it had done at the store, so I began sleeping on my side.
I foll...owed the care instructions, rotating the bed every week for 4 months. I continued to do this after the four month period. I also sleep in the middle when it’s just me. There are big dips/sagging in the bed where we have been sleeping. I have been having back problems from about week 8 since I brought it home. I wake up sore and in pain. Biggest waste of money. Definitely not durable, quite saddened it’s not what I’d hoped for. I would be better off with a good ol’ spring mattress. Disappointed in the promotion, if I didn’t like it within the 60 day period (I believe it was 60 or 90 days) I can swap it for another mattress. The salesman did not mention to me that I could only swap it for another bellagio, whether it be up or down in firmness. I’d have to pay the difference if going up, and I wouldn’t get any refund by downgrading. Save your pennies, unless you like the dips then by all means this is the bed for you. I purchased at my local Forty Winks.

Good quality and good sleep
After 8 months sleeping in this bed, It is the best and comfortable mattress I have had . I'm very happy of my choice .I saw many negative reviews that I don't know why the people have problem with mattress while they could change the mattress in 90 days .

Back pain got worse
So I bought the Firm Bellagio, Mattress it’s is like sleeping on concrete. I ordered the medium as my partner refused a firm mattress so we met half in the middle and I ordered medium with Lynn at forty winks but I received firm and had to double check the receipt. So not sure what happened with the sale maybe missed our communications when laying on beds and my partner and I discussing the firmness I’m not sure?. This is the fourth night sleeping on the concrete slab and I woke up at 2am screaming and crying in pain. I have back pain with the ...job I do so I want a firm bed to support my spine and have had firm mattress in the past, before my current partner. but this mattress is something else, It felt like a horse had kicked me so hard in the lower and mid range of my back and the pillow I got at forty winks was made for that bed from the sleep machine they have. I’ve been sleeping on the pillow for months no problems on my old mattress as soon as I put the pillow of the concrete slab it like matches the hardness of the mattress. I need to change mattress because I shouldn’t be screaming and crying in pain. I don’t want anything to do with Bellagio, Mattresses because even others are saying the medium is like concrete, and plush sags. Like we pay 3k for this mattress we should be sleeping on cloud nine. I don’t want to sleep on this bed for 30 days to try break in or get use to the mattress, I was going to give it a week but I just can’t! not with the pain I’m getting. I had to sleep on our old bed in the guest room with a heat pack on my back from the Bellagio, Mattress. Fourth night of loss of sleep! ( by the way I’m on annual leave and have been since I received this mattress so my pain is not caused from lifting at work it’s the mattress)

- Medium King
Best investment we made. We bought it during the price of a single promotion just under 2 years ago and this mattress is still supportive, continues to give us a restful sleep, and you definitely do not feel any partner movement. No sagging or indentation. Made with high quality material. It's never too hot or too cold. Highly recommend, but of course, go in store and actually try it as different people have different preference. We both used to struggle falling asleep with lots of neck pain but once we moved to this mattress, we both have quality sleep.
Purchased in August 2019 at Forty Winks QLD, Aspley for $2,000.
Cannot feel any partner movement at all.
Zero sagging or indentation.
Has worn incredibly well!
Hip pain from conventional mattresses is gone.
It's the best mattress we've had in 30 years.
Highly recommend this mattress.

- 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!

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.

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!

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 c...ases. 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! Cheers Sue
