My self and my family (other half plus two boys 3 and 5) purchased one of these from Tesco for £60. We have done two long weekends so far this summer and have found this tent to be almost perfect for us.

Good points:

1, Very easy to put up - I can do it myself within 30 mins or so.

2, Excellent sized bedroom which is great for a young family. Fits two double air beds easily (with enough room spare for clothes, cuddly toys, etc.

3, Having two entrances is brilliant for the hot weather and also for pitching it with privacy in mind - as you can choose your tent position easier.

4, Very handy pockets built into the bedroom compartment - both on the outside (towards living area) and inside at bottom both sides

Bad points:

1, Can't find custom footprint or carpets from Gelert (and their customer service is shocking by the way. I use a 4m x 5m Tarp and a few picnic blankets which work well.

2, A small amount of water will enter via the zips on both doors as the Velcro flaps don't cover them sufficiently.

3, There should be (in my humble and very inexperienced opinion!) additional guy ropes to the front of the tent above the entrance door. I understand that these would get in the way when door is open - but in windy conditions they really are needed (and in those conditions you wouldn't have the door open anyway)

So I am currently looking for some kind of attachment to clip onto the tent poles to provide support to the much needed guy ropes - so if you have any ideas please let me know!

4, Very draughty - doors do not have zips at bottom only to the sides.

But overall recommended for light/occasional use.

Im new to camping and have used my Gelert corona 6 on my last 3 camping trips. Its a great size for a family loads of living space. 1st time pitching the pin for the middle pole just wouldn't reached the pole, gave up trying so my dad just used pegs to stop the pole moving, its stayed up no issues anyway even in a full night of heavy rain. Since then the pin has reached the end of pole. I haven't had any leaks stayed nice and dry. I have been able to pitch it myself with the help of my 12yr old daughter. Loving it so far and bought it for under £50 so can't complain really.

Bought as a Christmas pressie for daughter and family, as they borrow our tent when they camp and this way we could go together. But over easter SIL got his holiday cancelled so we all piled into this on its maiden trip. Easy to pitch, we used the 'cross camping method' and grandad and 12 year old managed with only a little help from the girls. Thank you for other reviews.All granny kept chanting was grey pole at the back!

Tight fit for 3 adults and 2 kids in the bedrooms, we used 2 large double air beds. The flimsy divider did mean the 4 year old could move between beds when she felt like it, but like others have mentioned it isn't really a bedroom 'wall'. But space should be perfect for 2 adults & 2 kids though.

We had heavy rain one night and wind and rain another night with absolutely no problems dry as a bone but the side doors minimal Velcro was draughty!

We managed to fix our horizon side canopy which made a great space for the kitchen etc and left loads of room in the main living area for sitting in the evening.

A ehu entry would have been great, we used the side door which probably didn't help the draught.

All in all they were very pleased with their pressie and I was pleased with my £37.50 purchase!

This is the third year we've used this tent. I always wish I had just a bit more non bedroom space and a door which can be used as a porch, but as we're occasional campers it's adequate for the one or two times we use it a year.

We are 2 adults and 2 older children so we separate the bedroom compartment using the flimsy but ok divider. We also picked this up for cheap from Tesco so got a bargain.

The first time we used it, the whole tent flooded and we thought it was leaking but this turned out to be our novice mistake and hadn't pulled the back out enough and it was touching the inner tent ! Add torrential rain and it spells disaster.

And yes, grey pole at the back peeps x

Excellent tent. .

I have used it several times never let me down as it's obly classed as a weekend tent I haven't camped in it for a hole week but I am sure it would hold up.

Its easy to pitch and very well built. I was with friends who had paod a lot more for there tents an feel mine was as good as if not better than theirs.

I bought this tent last year and used it at a week long festival. Weather was horrendous wind and rain ,at one point we had to dig a trench to divert water running to wards us, however we stayed warm and dry probably due to the very deep sewn in groundsheet. My only bugbear is in those weather conditions nowhere to cook out of the elements. I am desperate to find a canopy that fits

I have been using this tent for 2 seasons now and overall, I am very pleased with it. As its only my wife and I, then this is very spaceous for the two of us, but I struggle to imagine 6 adults in this.

So far (touch wood) I have had no problems with the poles but I did have to rig up some extra guy ropes at the front of the tent to help in strong winds.

My only real gripe is that there is only one small piece of velcro holding the bottom of the side door closed.It either needs the zip to go all the way down the sides and around the bottom, or two or three more patches of velcro.

I also purchased this in a half price deal at Tesco , and really cant complain about value for money.

Bought this tent for half price in jan sales, first impressions very pleased with the size and how easy to put up (on a good day no wind )

Took our new tent 2wks ago to Golden Sands Mablethorpe haven site, thank god for the haven handyman because he saved our holiday the front tent poles shattered soon as a bit of wind hit it. New sections had to be replaced day one, new extra guide ropes had to be added to the tent to stop it blowing away. The side door only has a bit of velcro to fasten at the bottom, so that was flapping every time wind blew and flooded twice with the amount of rain smashing the tent. On taking the tent down to pack up only 3 sections of pole remained tacked from over 20 pieces the elastic had split through every piece the tent has been returned back to the shop and a full refund has been given.

On the whole I thought this tent was very big, plenty of space in both the living and sleeping area but the carbon poles are no way thick enough to hold such a big tent or enough guide rope in bad weather and thats a shame, so back to my old Vango karios it is then

Bought this as wanted a tent I could take my 3 kids in without needing too much help to put up. This also had one big bedroom rather than split or pods and I wanted us all to be able to sleep in one room comfortably. I already own a larger Gelert tunnel tent but find it too heavy and tricky to pitch so wanted something easier. This ticked every box plus it has built in ground sheet which makes the whole tent so much snugger (our old gelert was draughty in the extreme!).

Like other reviewers I found the instructions very basic and found out after some faffing that the grey pole goes at the back! Once up though its amazing, camped on coast last summer with no problems once we'd sorted out the tension around the door. Perfect size, plenty of sleeping room for 4 or even 5.

Bought from Tesco half price last summer but would have been easily worth paying the £120 full price tag.

Looking forward to more adventures this year!
