5 Best Zip & Link Beds For 2022

Zip and link beds are a common sight within hotels. They provide great flexibility for the hotel as these beds can be zipped together or separated within seconds, allowing you to change the dynamic of a room seamlessly.

This style of bed is commonly used by hotel and guest accommodation providers but has been growing in popularity over the years in the domestic market - and for good reason.

For a complete rundown on exactly what a zip and link bed is, head over to our article telling you just that.

But for now, let’s give you a quick summary of the benefits of zip and link beds.

Benefits Of Zip and Link Beds

  • Individual Mattress Support - typically, zip and link beds are two single beds that can be zipped together to form one larger bed. This means that two separate mattresses are used to complete a zip and link bed which allows users who share a bed to choose different mattresses to suit their preferences. Some people prefer firmer mattresses while others enjoy a softer feel as they sleep.
  • Easy To Install - The fact these beds can separate means manoeuvring them down narrow hallways and staircases is a breeze. The size and weight of these bed frames and mattresses ensure you’ll always be able to relocate these beds as and when required.
  • Versatile Sleeping Solution - Being able to maximise a room’s occupancy on short notice can be the difference between a sale or that room being left empty for the night. Zip and link beds ensure you can change up the dynamic of a room quickly. For example, a twin room (two singles) can be changed to a double room (one double/king size bed) within seconds. You can also create a family room (one double, one single) by utilising half of a zip and link bed from another room.
  • Abundance of Storage - Each of our zip and link beds are able to utilise the divan base underneath. Choose from a wide range of storage solutions. From simple side drawers to suitcase storage and even hidden guest beds.

Now you’ve been clued up on the benefits of zip and link beds, let’s dive right into our top 5 best zip and link beds for 2022.

Ten fabric colours, ten storage options and two bed sizes to choose from.


Pocket Dream 1000 Zip And Link Bed

The Pocket Dream 1000 is largely described as a benchmark zip and link bed and is a common choice for hotels and B&B’s such as Ramada Inn, Days Inn and Welcome Break.

Handcrafted and lovingly made in our UK workshops.

The 10’’ deep mattress gives a medium feel to the user and features 1000 of our unique iDentity individual pocket springs, all working independently from one another to give personalised contoured support while you sleep.

Multiple layers of hypoallergenic fillings are layered on top of the spring unit held in place with cotton tufts. These fillings are then covered with our exclusive soft touch knitted mattress fabric helping maintain your comfort throughout the entire night.

We understand that hotels are high traffic businesses, that’s why we offer our unique stain guard vinyl treatment to the bed base. This treatment makes the base water repellent and also creates an easy to wipe clean surface.

Choose from ten fabric colours, ten storage options and three bed sizes.


Natural Choice 6000 Zip And Link Bed

Our Natural Choice 6000 is the best of the best. A top choice for high-end boutique hoteliers who want to really give their guests that ‘wow’ factor.

Lovingly handmade by our master craftsmen with techniques refined and handed down over generations, you’ll be blown away by the quality of the Natural Choice 6000.

Available in a medium feel mattress, this Natural Choice has a staggering 6000 unique iDentity individual pocket springs which are nested in a honeycomb formation maximising support and comfort.

Each individual spring uses the finest quality steel which is then encased in it’s own calico pocket to ensure breathability through the entire mattress.

Long-lasting natural fibres and fillings are gently laid over the springs giving the ultimate in comfort. On top of this cotton is a soft layer of springy wool used for its insulation, enabling the mattress to feel warm in the winter and cool in the summer with the aid of cashmere and silk.

As with all our zip and link beds, choose from various fabric colours, storage options, bed sizes and whether or not you’d like your base fabric to be treated with our unique stainguard vinyl.


Posture 2000 Zip And Link Bed

We pride ourselves on quality over quantity. This is why each of our divan beds are individually made to order by hand by our master craftsmen.

Our Posture 2000 model is part of our firmer feel orthopaedic backcare range, specifically designed for those sleepers who prefer a firmer feeling mattress where you ‘lay-on’ the mattress rather than ‘lay-in’ the mattress.

The Posture 200, as you might have guessed, houses 2000 unique iDentity pocket springs - each made from the finest quality steel and encased in its own calico pocket.

The springs work independently from one another, providing excellent spinal support as well as allowing for the hips and shoulders to gently make them feel at home in the mattress as the springs arch up into the small of your back for valuable support.

The top of the mattress features a quilted soft-top for luxurious comfort, while the firmer feel underneath makes sure you don’t sink too much into the mattress.#

Once again, this divan has the choice of ten beautiful fabric colours, ten storage options, three bed sizes and the option to treat the base fabric with our unique stainguard vinyl.


Marquess 3000 Zip And Link Bed

The Marquess 3000 is a popular choice for Guest Houses and AirBnB’s.

Handmade to order, the Marquess 3000 features 3000 of our unique iDentity pocket springs, utilising cutting edge technology to ensure you are provided with the correct lumbar and spinal support as you sleep.

Hypoallergenic fillings are then hand layered giving enhanced recovery and allowing natural temperature regulation to help prevent overheating whilst softly contouring to the shape of your body.

The mattress is finished off with soft touched knitted fabric which is extremely absorbent, helping remove moisture to keep you dry and refreshed as you sleep.
