Millions of Brits get a bad night’s sleep if they’re away from home – The Sun



IT’S OFFICIAL – you never get a good night’s sleep in a bed which isn’t your own.
Researchers who carried out a detailed study found millions of Brits have stayed away from home overnight – and woken up feeling dog rough in the morning.
According to the stats two in five Brits ‘dread’ staying away from home because they know they won’t sleep as well as they would in their own bed.

It’s not just worries about a bad night’s kip though as being ‘in the way’, sleeping on a terrible mattress and waking their hosts in the middle of the night are other ‘guest anxieties’ when staying with friends.
Witnessing awkward arguments, together with the conundrum of waking up too early and not knowing what to do, also play heavily on the nation’s minds.
Steve Reid, CEO of sleep tech company Simba, which commissioned the study to mark the launch of their new Hybrid Topper said: “A great stay with friends is a fragile thing, easily disrupted by the smallest thing like a failure of etiquette, or even a poor night’s sleep.
“Many of our anxieties regarding staying over with friends stem from worrying about sleeping arrangements, and it should be important to host’s that their guests sleep with comfort and support, to ensure they wake up on the right side.”
The poll of 2,000 adults also revealed that nearly half the nation are creatures of comfort, disliking staying overnight in places that aren’t home.
Twenty-eight per cent are worried they won’t get a good night’s sleep, and one in five fear they won’t have a proper bed to sleep in.
Top 10 guest anxieties when staying over

Invading their space / being in the way
Disturbing their sleep during the night by going to the toilet or getting a glass of water
Getting a good night’s sleep
Being too cold or too hot
Not having a proper or comfortable bed to stay in
Waking them up in the morning
Disrupting their daily plans
Overstaying your welcome
Not having the right duvet or amount of pillows
Disrupting their shower schedule

And 73 per cent have had a poor night’s sleep while staying in an uncomfortable guest bed.
In true British style though, 54 per cent of these have fibbed to their host and said they had a great night’s rest to avoid upsetting them.
Researchers also found 62 per cent of Brits have a room ready for when guests come to stay.
And two thirds have a proper bed for guests to stay in.
Though 21 per cent have had a guest make a joke about how uncomfortable the guest bed is to sleep in.
And 52 per cent think the type of sleep they get while staying away from their own bed is of lower quality.
In order to make the bed more comfortable, 16 per cent with a guest bed think they need to replace the sheets and one in seven would buy a mattress topper to get more life out of it.
More than one in 10 would even replace the mattress entirely.
Brits’ favourite thing about staying the night as a guest is getting to see their host, followed by the sense of adventure they get from being away from home.
And one in 10 just like taking a break from looking after themselves and being waited on by one of their friends.
It also emerged The average adult will spend 11 nights away from their own beds as a guest each year, staying with three separate hosts.
Steve Reid added: “Even the best guests find themselves with the short straw when they stay over, sleeping on a mattress or futon in need of a guest bed saviour.
