Looking for the best pillows for a luxurious night’s sleep? There are so many benefits of a good night’s sleep and in this post, I am sharing my TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Review as part of the TEMPUR® Gift of Sleep Campaign. This post is sponsored by TEMPUR® and contains TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Original PR products, however, all thoughts are my own and are not influenced by TEMPUR®. This post contains limited-time TEMPUR® discounts for pillows and mattresses for my readers (details further in the post) using the code TEMPUR9704
As a travel blogger, I’ve had my fair share of early morning dashes to the airport and dreaded jetlag, which all impact on the ability to enjoy a good night’s sleep. But one thing, in particular, I’ve come to learn from my travels is that you can judge a hotels’ luxury status on the quality of their pillows and mattresses!
Luxury hotels and boutique hotels that claim to source only quality bespoke items do not scrimp on the quality of their pillows and mattresses. It’s certainly something to consider on your next affordable luxury hotel stay.
I’m always on the hunt for the best pillows for a luxurious night’s sleep and It’s certainly something that I always rank high on my review of hotels (along with the shower!) With this in mind, I was delighted to be invited to collaborate with TEMPUR® for their Gift of Sleep Campaign to undertake a TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow review and visit the Milton Keynes TEMPUR® store.
*Note – store visit was undertaken prior to current Government restrictions.
TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Review
In fact, most of us have probably already slept on a TEMPUR® hotel comfort pillow or on a TEMPUR® mattress as they are used by some well-known hotel chains.
Whilst travel is certainly off the agenda at the moment, there are other things going on such as lockdown and election worries that can have a negative impact on sleep.
The collaboration to review a TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow couldn’t have come at a better time and I used this opportunity to get cosy at home to prioritise my sleep.
As I unwrapped my comfort pillow, I couldn’t help myself as I pressed on the pillow to watch it bounce back into place. Simple pleasures! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait for bedtime to try it out!
TEMPUR® and NASA – Sleep comfort pillow taking you to a galaxy far far away
Growing up, I had glow in the dark stars on my ceiling, with star and moon bedding transporting me to dreams of the night sky and beyond.
This nostalgia intrigued me to learn that the TEMPUR® brand origins began in space, when TEMPUR® created a material based on the memory foam designed by NASA to absorb G force pressure during a space flight.
It’s memory foam, not rocket science I hear you say. However, the memory foam used by NASA inspired TEMPUR® to create its own unique memory foam design that fewer than 10 people know how to make.
I recalled pressing my hands down on my comfort pillow, not too dissimilar to bouncing on the moon with moon boots on really…Though, I’d like to give it a go for comparison reasons of course!
Transporting you to another galaxy, TEMPUR® pillows and mattresses are the only ones recognised by NASA to improve quality of life through sleep.
If they’re good enough for NASA, then they’re good enough for me right?! Back to my review…
Is the TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Original the best pillow for a good night sleep?
Whilst, I wished I’d kept hold of my glow in the dark stars to really give me the dreamy space vibe! I can tell you, these gravity-defying pillows don’t move an inch during the night, meaning I have comfort and support all night long to aid my sleep.
On first use, I have to admit, I found the pillow much firmer than when I had tried it out in the TEMPUR® Milton Keynes store. But as I mentioned above, the firmness helped keep my comfort pillow in place all night, which stopped me putting my arm underneath it and squeezing it into a ball of zero support.
I found that I didn’t need to use two pillows and the TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Original was enough to support my head and neck.
Rather than ending up in my usual fetal position with my head tucked under and my body in an uncomfortable ball shape, I was finding myself straighter in bed. The TEMPUR® comfort pillow improved my posture in bed by better supporting my head and neck.
I also didn’t wake in the night with a pressure headache from my pillow, which had started to become a usual occurrence from my previous pillows. In fact, I felt that I slept better overall and didn’t find myself flipping to the cold side of the pillow because my pillow didn’t get too hot. Just this alone is a blessing in disguise, as I probably would’ve knocked Adam out if I attempted to flip the comfort pillow over in the night! Let’s just say, the TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Original would be brutal in a pillow fight!
I later discovered (from my TEMPUR® Milton Keynes store visit) that all the TEMPUR® products have a breathable material to regulate your body temperature whilst sleeping, which is ideal for the warmer summer months too! In addition, the TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow’s sturdiness makes it a great support for reading and writing in bed. I’ve shared more on this later down the post!
Overall, I was impressed with my comfort pillow and think it is a quality product that will stand the test of time. Unlike, too many of my previous pillows which have ended up as flat as a pancake after a couple of weeks.
TEMPUR® Neck Pillow and TEMPUR® Product Range
Another TEMPUR® product I’m eager to try is the TEMPUR® neck pillow, which has a unique shape to give better neck support during sleep. As someone who works on a computer all day, only to blog and hunch in front of my phone on social media all evening, I always suffer from neck/back pain and tight shoulders.
For those suffering from neck pain, the TEMPUR® neck comfort pillow is likely to be a great choice as it is narrower on one side to ease your neck onto the pillow to provide better comfort and support.
TEMPUR® Milton Keynes Store CentreMK
Whilst I haven’t been shopping as much over the past few months, I couldn’t have felt safer with the TEMPUR® clean & safe promise in operation when I visited the Milton Keynes TEMPUR® store.
These measures include hand sanitiser on entering the store and your own protective sheet to enable you to try out all the TEMPUR® mattresses and pillows.
The new safety measures are in place to help keep you protected while you shop, as well as provide a tailored service to find your perfect pillows and mattresses in Milton Keynes. Simply book an appointment on the website (I received a response from Geraldine at TEMPUR® in under 5 minutes) to arrange a date and time to visit the store.
Visiting the Milton Keynes TEMPUR® store gave me ample opportunity to try out the various pillows and mattresses in the TEMPUR® range. Not only did I learn that my own home mattress probably isn’t the most suitable for me, but there are special discounts and advantages to booking an appointment to visit the store, such as gifts and outlet deals. I came away with a TEMPUR® Comfort Travel Pillow, which was an incentive for booked appointments when the store reopened in the summer. Needless to say, I can’t wait to use the TEMPUR® Comfort Travel Pillow for my travels and upcoming long-haul flights! Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing more on this in my Travel Girls Gift Guide Post.
Store Manager Elaine advised me that a firm mattress (like the one I have at home) isn’t the best solution for my neck and back pain as I’d initially thought! I also fell in love with the TEMPUR® Original Elite Mattress, which is notably softer than my own mattress at home. As I write this, I must add that my own bed hasn’t felt the same since I tried the TEMPUR® Original Elite Mattress and I will be saving up for one!
But Original Elite aside, there’s only so much time that I can lay and try the TEMPUR® mattresses in Milton Keynes out before Store Manager Elaine kicks me out! This is where the TEMPUR® 100-night sleep and 10-year guarantee come in.
TEMPUR® 100-Night Sleep Trial and TEMPUR® 10-Year Guarantee
TEMPUR® gives their customers 100 nights to try out their new mattress (30 nights for a pillow) to ensure they are purchasing the best mattress or pillow to suit their needs, which I think is a great idea to truly experience the products at home. If you change your mind, simply return or swap for a different TEMPUR® product within those 100 nights.
Confident with how long TEMPUR® products last, each mattress purchase also comes with a TEMPUR® 10 year guarantee. The 100-night sleep and 10-year guarantee help customers have peace of mind knowing that they are able to purchase their preferred comfort pillow and mattress to suit their needs.
But, why are TEMPUR® pillows so expensive you may ask? Trust me, when you’ve tried a TEMPUR® pillow you can sleep better, longer, deeper and after using one you can appreciate the difference in quality. TEMPUR® products are a long-lasting, high-quality investment, and they are a brand who are confident with the sleep quality they provide, which is why they offer all their customers the 100-night sleep trial and 10-year guarantee.

The Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep
As consumers, we often don’t think twice about booking a fancy holiday (I know I don’t) or buying the latest Apple device, or saving for a nice car. But, what price do we put on our sleep? What prices are we willing to pay for a new pillow or mattress in comparison?
There are so many benefits to having a good night’s sleep to improve both physical and mental health. I know I always feel better after a good sleep. I feel more equipped to seize the day, have better memory, concentration and a good night’s sleep helps lift my mood.
Lack of sleep can be bad for your health and the NHS provides insight regarding this. Whilst I’m a good sleeper, it goes without saying I’m no expert (even if I like to think I am).
But, I’ve found these tips helpful and I hope you do too:
My tips for how to get a good night’s sleep:
- Exercise – something we can all take for granted, especially during the winter months. Getting out and doing some exercise, enjoying some fresh air always helps me sleep better.
- Using Night-Mode on my devices 3 hours before I go to bed. Simply, go to Settings-Display and Brightness-Night Shift. You can set up custom times to auto-enable night mode. Night Shift Mode uses a warm light setting, without bright blue UV lights that can damage your eyes and may give you a better night’s sleep.
- Stop using my phone 1 hour before going to sleep. Those nights when I come off my phone earlier, I always tend to sleep better.
- Avoid caffeine and lots of drinks 1 hour before bed. If you’re anything like me, too much caffeine or many drinks before bed will guarantee a whirling mind and numerous trips to the toilet during the night. Instead, I take a pint of water with freshly squeezed lemon in and do not drink any more than half before bed. Lemon provides natural hydration and will keep you hydrated during the hours you are asleep. I always make sure I drink the remaining water when I wake up to rehydrate me.
- Having a nice relaxing bath always helps me drift off and I need to incorporate more of these into my Winter wellness routine.
- Stretching and light yoga always relaxes me to the point of falling asleep.
- Reading or journaling helps to tire me out and get any thoughts off my brain before drifting off.
- Earplugs! All my loved ones know, I don’t go anywhere without my earplugs! No snoring fiancés are interfering with my sleep! I absolutely swear by them!
- Calm App – If all else fails, I highly recommend downloading the Calm App and listening to Matthew McConaughey’s southern drawl as he sends you off to sleep. No matter how many times I’ve wanted to keep listening, he never fails to send me off to sleep. Sadly, laying in his arms during the process of falling asleep isn’t one of the benefits of the app…
Lots of people also recommend camomile tea, but I haven’t tried any myself. But, it goes without saying investing in a good mattress and pillow are likely to work wonders. I’ve certainly noticed a difference in my sleep quality since using the TEMPUR® comfort pillow Original.
TEMPUR® Gift of Sleep this Christmas
Returning from my travels, I always can’t wait to get back into my own bed. And I’m slowly applying the “there’s no place like home” logic during times like these when I can’t travel.
With travel off the agenda, more time and money on our hands, me and Adam are finally taking the time to turn our home into a haven that we’ll be even more excited to return to when we can travel again.
We’ve spent thousands on our holidays over the years, but we haven’t really spent much at all on buying things around the home to improve our everyday life, which is strange really as we spend more time at home than anywhere else.
On average, we spend a third of our lives at home in bed and this only emphasises the importance of using good quality mattresses and pillows.
Home has become the centre of all our world’s this year, so why not give the gift of sleep to yourself or to your loved ones this Christmas to aid a better night’s sleep?

Review – TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Overall Thoughts
I must say, I had the best time reviewing my comfort pillow, and a collaboration with a luxury pillow brand cannot be underestimated. Thanks for the sleep TEMPUR® 😃
As I finish writing this review on a Sunday (having slept in until 11.30 am), I am still finding it difficult to remove myself from bed…However, this gives me ample opportunity to try my comfort pillow as support for reading and writing in bed. Adam always tells me off for leaning on his pillows whilst I’m sat up in bed, and to be fair to him, sadly his pillows don’t usually stand the test of time in this regard.
The plump firmness of the TEMPUR® comfort pillow Original makes it ideal for reading on, as well as sleeping, which is handy as I’m planning on doing more reading over the coming weeks.
As I sit back with a book, dreaming about my future travels, I can rest assured that I’m doing myself some good with better support from my TEMPUR® comfort pillow.
I hope you enjoyed reading my TEMPUR® comfort pillow review. Not only do I hope this post helps you suss out the real luxury boutique hotels by their pillows, of course! I also hope you find it useful for choosing your own TEMPUR® pillows and products (don’t forget to use the TEMPUR® discount codes provided above before they expire!)
