We found this tent good value and excellent quality. We faced 50mph winds and driving rain throughout the night and into the fill owing afternoon and it stayed standing and maintained its shape and strength. We were impressed and would recommend.
Easy to put up and put away even in bad weather
None that I can think of
Took my two young children on their first camping trip with this tent.
It fit a double mattress and a toddler bed, the 3 of us were very cosy. (It wouldn't fit two mattresses, if that is what you're looking for).
It was easy to assemble/disassemble and fit back in the bag. Packs quite compact and is particularly light to carry, bonus!
The porch area was great for all the extra gear and even managed to store a buggy as well.
It didn't rain, so I can't comment on that.
Overall a great tent for the price.
Plenty of room, porch area quite big
We brought this as we were going to glastonbury and wanted something a bit bigger and with more space.
It says 4 man but I don't think it would be comfortable as a 4 man, 3 man would be ok, but there was just two of us. It meant we could have the space to 'unpack' and not struggle to get changed with both of us in the tent at the same time. I'm just over 6ft and I couldn't stand up, but I knew this prior to purchasing it and found it not really to be an issue. For the price it certainly was well worth it.
It kept dry, and the porch was certainly of added benefit to store everything muddy in.
If you are looking for a 'cheapish' tent (I know that sounds bad but it isn't) then buy it, worth the money and from a very decent brand of tents. You'd be unlikely to find something as good as this for a similar amount.
Space, Porch, Ease of putting up and taking down
I was able to put this tent up and down in less than 10 minutes by myself. The inside and outer layers are connected so all you have to do is insert 3 poles and peg it down!
Has enough room in the front to sit comfortably on chairs when it's raining or cold. Couldn't quite fit 2 double air beds in but still enough room for 4 people in the tent.
So easy to put up!
Not quite big enough for two double air beds
We were disappointed that the front of the tent doesn't meet the ground to attach a ground sheet. Once the tent was up we realised a ground sheet is not provided, so we were forced to buy one separately. I recently saw that the Arpenaz 4.1 comes with a fitted ground sheet that meets the base of the tent. For the £10/15 difference get the 4.1. When is rains the front of the tent gets wet inside.
Quick to put up
Comes with no ground sheet

I thought it was a bit flimsy when I put it up but it lasted in 45 mile an hour winds with ease and torrential rain for 7 hours not a drop of rain came in could do with a ground sheet for the front part other wise cannot fault
Easy to put up by one person 10 mins most
Bit tight for 4 persons
Great bargain, good quality, withstood 4hrs of rain no leaks. Not quite as big as images portray could be classed as good 3 man tent 4 is a squeeze.
Quick and easy to pitch nice, withstood rain
A bit tight for 4
The tent stood upto some very strong winds. It was comfortable in use. Door zip went in wind & roof vent allowed rain in when windy. Good value tent where you can stand up in living area.
Good size tent, adjustable straps are usefull
Roof Vent allows water in with wind. Poor door zip
Delighted with this simple and inexpensive tent. Very roomy for two or three with a good size porch for sitting in. Like the fact that the porch has no groundsheet as this allows better ventilation and spillages don't matter. Has stood up to torrential rain in a thunder storm without any leaks, which is more than I can say for my £500 inflatable tent.
