A hotel chain product manager has stated that the bed is "the most important element" in a room
A woman dubbed Sleeping Beauty by her colleagues who works testing mattresses at hotels across the UK has described beds as “the most important element” in a room.
Sarah Simpson, who claims to be more like Goldilocks, is a product manager for the Premier Inn chain and she told the Mirror: “I have to make sure our beds are as comfortable as possible, with just the right amount of springiness – not too hard and not too soft.”
She explained that she has to lie down to test mattresses effectively, in addition to rolling around and jumping up and down on bed frames.
The 43-year-old said she had tested hundreds during her time with the company.
Ms Simpson explained that the bedroom furniture has to be right for a range of different people, with the height of mattresses raised to ensure older people can get in and out of them more easily.
Bensons recently launched its stylish new sleigh bed model Vogue, which comes with a range of options for mattresses to suit all tastes and help ensure a good night’s sleep.
