Pros: cheap and cheerful
Cons: things broke
" We are a family of 4 h
Got this tent as wanted a seperate room from kids. Good size for 4 people. Easy to put up in half hour we had a practice first. I agree with comment with regard to flys in tent as gtound sheet not attached but fly did not get in bedrooms. We found that whem pegging them bedroon into ground the end came off leaving a hole
halfords did get us a new bedroom. Also whrn dismantlimg it one of the pole broke i will also be going bavk to halfords wiyh this. Deapite all this it was wet and windy while we were away and had no real problems only that two corners needed re pegging in. Otherwise satisfied

Pros: price, easy to set up, spacious living area
Cons: smaller bedroom slopes down over inhabitant, no built in groundsheet
" First of all, the tent doesn’t reach the ground. However, this seems to be a common theme with budget tents as it’s the third one I’ve experienced with this issue. They all seem to have a gap. Maybe the only way to avoid this issue is to buy a better tent with built in groundsheet?
Secondly, I had no problem pegging the ground sheet into place. I have no idea why others had this problem? There is a worry about rain getting into the living quarters though as it’s not attached but we’ll find out soon enough.
The large bedroom will not sleep 4 people if they’re intending to use airbeds! However, using mats this would be possible but a bit of a squeeze. The partition certainly doesn’t leave enough room for two people in each. The smaller bedroom is ok, has plenty of foot and headroom but it really slopes down over the person on the inside and I’m a little worried about moving in the middle of the night if it’s raining as I fail to see how I’ll avoid touching the outer skin and getting wet.
The living area is spacious, there’s plenty of headroom and although the grounsheet isn’t built in it’s the one place I’m comfortable in the tent. There’s plenty of room for chairs and storage etc.
Was very easy to put up and take down.
People have claimed they are ‘prepared to spend a little extra for quality’ then moaned about one of the cheapest 6 man tent’s on the market?
One more thing. I got my tent back into the bag. Just call me Houdini! "

Pros: large bedroom
Cons: groundsheet, tent not reaching ground
" As a first ever brought tent we eventually decided upon this. However now wish we had decided on a tent with an attached ground sheet. Upon putting up this tent we discovered the tent does not actually reach the ground and that the ground sheet did not fit securely either way we placed it. Due to the grooundsheet and the tent not reaching the floor we discovered we had lots of bugs within the tent and that the rain seeped right into the living space. "

Pros: size of tent, two bed rooms, easy to pitch
Cons: no ground sheet lets in insects, small vents
" I bought this tent for a family camping trip with 2 adults and a child. Being the child's first camping trip we wanted a large tent with separate rooms.
The tent was easy to pitch and we had plenty of room however once pitched the detachable ground sheet didn't fit which ever way we put the sheet.
The biggest problem was the gaps between the ground sheet and tent. During the time we were away from the tent and over night, the tent was invaded with spiders and flies.
The sleeping areas were unaffected because they have attached ground sheets and fly netting but they had little venting parts and became very stuffy.
I returned this tent for one with a attached ground sheet which was slightly more expensive, However not waking up to a tent full of insects is worth paying for.
This tent would be good for new campers looking only going away for a couple of nights or for festivals etc.

" I ordered the tent online, picked it up an hour later on our way to the camp site. Great quick service.
This was our first time camping so it took us about 30mins to put it up but it went up very easily. The poles are all colour coded and seem good quality.Lots of space in side but it was only for 2 of us so we had the big bedroom and used the other space for our stuff.
Only downside to the tent is there is a separate groundsheet where as our friends tent had one built in which was handy in the rain. But the bedrooms remained very dry so no real problem.
Very happy with it ! however you wont get it back in the original bag, not even Houdini could do that :) "

Pros: good size, easy to put up, easy to pack away
Cons: separate groundsheet for centre area
" Fantastic entry level tent. Good size rooms and centre area but would be very "intimate" if was for use by 6 adults!!
Really simple to put up. After initial trial at home to check things it did take only 25 mins. Lots little extras in like mosquito nets and air vents, little pockets in bedrooms. Overall superb purchase.
I would recommend getting some more secure tent pegs and use these on the most important areas and this will stop any fear of blowing away.
