" First time been camping and first time to pitch up a tent!
This tent was easy to picth up, (between me a mum and my 83 year old dad). plenty of space for 3 of us (incl my 9 year old daughter), very cosy bedrooms. Rained at night, no rain got it, and we had no condensation either. Very easy to take down and the bag it comes in is expandable, so the tent easily got in and the the bag just zips up to a very small size again. Love our new tent, loved camping, Already booking our next camping holiday. Loads of thanks to Richard the Sales Assistant in halfords Guildford.Very patient, genuine, informative and friendly. Wish all sales assistant are like him

Pros: easy to pitch, great size
Cons: cosy bedrooms
" We bought this tent for a recent camping trip as we wanted to be able to stand up inside. The tent is very spacious and easy to pitch. The bedrooms are a little small for two people though, the person nearest the end of the tent has a very low ceiling.
Quality is great for the price.

Pros: everything!
" For someone who is 6 ft 4, plenty of room in both the pods and central section. Partner and I had enough room to fit double air bed in pod and be comfy. Fantastic quality and having two doors allows the tent to stay cool/air out. Recommend to anyone looking to spend not too much but want a good quality tent! "

" The tent comprises; the main outer structure, two inner sleeping structures, 3 fibre bracing rods, 2 awning support rods and 32 pegs. The main structure incorporates the groundsheet, All well constructed; no bad stitching found.
The carry bag opens out flat and has 3 compartments; main tent, sleeping tents, and rods/pegs in the middle, the tent compartments have expansion zips to aid re-packing.
Erecting the tent single handed for 1st time while checking contents and inspecting all components took about 40 mins. 20 mins would be normal from start to finish single handed.
Plenty of room for 2 adults in each sleeping compartment and good space in the living area.
Excellent product, the only adverse point is that this is not a lightweight tent, if you have to carry it any distance don't try it on your own.

Pros: spacious, sturdy
" I bought this as an upgrade to a similar, older tent. I am a regular camper and loved this tent. there is so much room in the living area, and the windows make it seem even bigger, the bedrooms are an adequate size, fitted my double air bed in nicely. The tent felt sturdy, where I camped was quite windy and I felt safe and secure in the tent. Reasonable price as well for the size o the tent, I would definitely recommend this tent, brilliant!! "

Pros: easy to erect, easy to pack away, two spacious bedroom compartments, large living space
" This tent replaced a family starter 4 man tent pack which I bought and then realised it didn't have a sewn in groundsheet. With rain forecast for our scheduled camping trip I paniced and returned the starter pack, reserving this tent to pick up on the way to the camp site.
I am SO glad I chose this tent. It was very quick and easy to put up and it withstood several downpours on our two night camping trip. The sewn in groundsheet was a blessing. The central area is very roomy and it has an airy feel about it. The sleeping compartments easily fit a double air bed but there is also room for baggage. It is simple to take down and not too difficult to put back in the bag. The guide ropes are bright yellow and easily seen. Think ours was one of the only tents not to cause a trip or fall!
In a nut shell I can thoroughly recommend this tent. It kept myself and my two children comfortable and dry and I look forward to using it again very soon. "

Pros: good quality for the price, draft free but well ventilated, kept us dry on very wet weekend, easy to assemble and take down
Cons: heavy so not great if you have to carry it too far
" I recently went camping to beer festival with my partner who had never been camping before. Not wanting to put him off for life I did a lot of research before buying this tent. It does everything it claims to do. It kept us warm and dry despite it being a very wet weekend. The attached ground sheet meant there were no drafts and keeps the bugs out. It was easy to put up and take down, with the expandable bag being a real blessing when taking it down. It does need 2 people to assemble it. The tent is surprisingly big (looks much bigger than in the picture). Would comfortably sleep four people which from my experience is very unusual for a tent. The only downside is its very heavy so it is fine if you aren't going too far but wouldn't be great if you had to carry it any sort of distance. "
