Q: I'm looking for a top of the range pocket sprung super king size mattress. I've seen the Elysium 2000 at Costco is this a good one and is it quite firm Question from gill

A:

If you are looking for a "top of the range" pocket sprung mattress from ourselves then we suggest you try one from our Sanctuary 2400 range.  2400 individually responsive pocket springs, including 1400 luxurious mini springs for added comfort combined with a luxury comfort layer.  However, although we may consider this range to be "top" it does not necessarily mean that the comfort level is right for you and ideally you would want to try any mattress along with its corresponding base before making a purchase.

The Elysium is a perfectly good mattress.  With 2000 springs it is at the far end of the range and is, therefore, more firmer than the mattresses with 1000 springs. 

You do need to consider the base on which you intend to put the mattress, a platform base will make any mattress feel firmer, while a sprung edge base will act as a shock absorber, softening the feel.
