Subsequent to our last post, we have now pitched our tent in the back garden and it is absolutely brilliant. It offers us everything we had hoped for in terms of family living space. The central living area is very large and has the added bonus of a large outdoor porch area for cooking in (although we will probably get a kitchen tent for this). The bedrooms are very impressive and have the added bonus of doors which can be zipped closed. We are extremely impressed with our tent and is so big we couldn't put the porch up properly as it extended into the garden hedge. We will definitely have to choose campsites with large pitching areas for tents. I can highly recommend this tent to anyone with children who are looking for a family tent which offers space and versatility. We are now really looking forward to going on our first camping trip next month.

We have just taken delivery of our first ever family tent - The Royal Biarritz 6. We haven't had a chance to put it up yet, but will certainly be doing so soon. One thing we have noticed from the instructions so far, this is not a 'fly-first' pitching style. The instructions say you need to erect the inner first, followed by the outer. Having said this, it won't make much difference to us as we love the design and chose it for it's communal living space and the fantastic reviews given by others. We will certainly be pitching it soon and will let you all know how we get on.Watch this space!

This is the best tent we have ever owned, my wife and I have no problem putting up or taking down as we have it off to a fine art now. Just being the two of us the space inside is amazing Our kingsize airbed fits in one of the pods no problem and the other is used as a changing room complete with wardrobe and all the rest of the boxes,bags etc. We had a week last year when it rained solid for four days but our Biarritz was totally dry and snug. There is a huge centre area where we stood our table, chairs and still had room to move around quite comfortably. It's unbelievable just what this tent has to offer in the way of space. It stood up to the worst of winds and anything the weather could throw at it we absolutely love it. Everything else has already been said about this great tent so if like us and there is only the two of you, have a serious think about space for all your bits and bobs and go for large, you wont regret it. Never mind the weather, Roll on Easter

This is the best tent ever. I have just bought my second one the 2008 model with the carpet as my first a 2006 gave up the ghost after nearly 2 years of nearly constant use. I work all over the country and camp whenever possible so really my tent is my home and I tell you what in 30 years of camping I have never come across I tent as good, as easy to pitch (for its size) as homely and cosy or as good to ride a storm out in as I have several times with out any problems or any real sense of it being a bit windy. Buy one you wont regret it

After weeks of searching & much debate over measurements & reviews, we opted to purchase the Biarritz 6, and have just enjoyed our first weekend away in it.

The first job was to attempt putting up the tent in the back garden, and you do NEED 2 people, otherwise the tent leans & falls where it wants.

You put up the inner first with the majority of the poles and then fit the outer over the top, which does mean the inner will get wet if! it's raining.

Having said all that, we managed to fully put the tent up in an hour on the first attempt, slightly less on the 2nd attempt and down to 45 mins on our third attempt.

The tent packs away in 3 separate sections, poles, inner & outer and does require a bit of practice.

Poles are easy & we soon got to grips with the outer as it is light and flexible.

The inner tent with the fixed in groundsheet still takes us 2 attempts every time we try, and in the rain it is probably better not to bother trying as it will only need taking out again to dry properly once home.

On our first trip we managed to erect the tent in steady rain & light wind in 50 minutes and the inner although wet during putting up soon dried out with the breeze blowing once the tent was up.

The main factor when buying this was the layout & the space it gives you, 2 large bedrooms that you can stand up in and a large living area with enough room for us, our 7 year old and the German Shepherd to all live and eat even on the wettest stay at home day.

The large porch area to the front became for us a self contained Kitchen, again leaving more room in the main living area. However it could have many uses as it has a door that separates it from the main area as well as a door to the outside.

There is a second door to the back of the tent, opposite the porch, great when the kitchen is in use to keep children/dogs away. It can also be closed completely or used as a large window when not in use as a door, I have not yet figured out how to secure it though from the inside.

There are plenty of windows and a skylight in the porch to let in natural light during the day, all opening windows/vents have the option to be completely closed or open with fly mesh to prevent insects, as do the bedroom compartments.

The fitted groundsheet and 3000mm head waterproofing ensure that everyone & everything remain dry, even in the worst wet weather. Our 2nd day had very heavy rain but we did not notice a single leak.

There is also an electric cable zip near one of the bedrooms and there are storage pockets next to each bedroom compartment.

Overall once this tent is set up you could not want for more from a family tent, and unusually the tent would in our opinion accommodate with relative ease, the actual stated number of occupants.

The only things that stopped it getting a perfect 10 are putting away is tricky, even with practice.

It is heavy to move too far(about 70lb).

And putting it up could be a touch easier.

However I would not hesitate to recommend this tent to anyone looking for a quality tent with room for a family.

After all they have not made the perfect tent yet, but this comes damn close

We have just got back from our first holiday camping. It took me about 6 weeks to decide on what tent to buy, I had read loads of reviews on all different types and sorts of tent. I came across the Royal Biarritz quite early on, and it was one I wanted, but I talked myself out of it due to the sheer size of the tent. After looking at loads of different types of tent. I discovered that Royal had just brought out a new and improved 2008 version of the Royal biarritz, I managed to find an online shop who would sell it to me for 199. Baragin. What a great tent, loads of room inside in both bedrooms and living space, the entrance galley can be used as a bedroom as the tent also has an additional entrance, when we were away the first two days were very hot, so having this additional entrance allowed for good air flow through the tent cooling it down inside. IIt is also big enough here to use as a cooking and eating area having ample room for one of those collapsible picnic tables. The last two days we had loads of very heavy rain and there wasn't a sign of any water getting in. I am a first time camper and it took me only about 40minutes to get the tent up only needed a little bit of help to get the outer layer of the tent on. Only gripe might be getting it back in the bag when wet, we had to just take down and put in roof box and then put it in the bag when I get a dry day to air it out. This tent, is a match for any of the more expensive brands, and probably would deliver a better performance. Well worth 200.

All I can do is endorse what other campers have already explained, plus there are a few other companies now trying to copy the Biarritz 6 which is testimony to its leadership in its class. Excellent tent still using it annually why fix it, if it is not broken!

I love this tent!

We bought one last year and used it straight away. It is comfortable and very spacious. Even with 3 adults and 3 dogs inside we never felt cramped.

Another plus for me was the height of the bedrooms as I hate crawling around trying to get dressed on my knees.

The sewn in groundsheet in the living area felt so much nicer than having that draught coming round your legs, and the porch was plenty big enough to store not only our food, but also to have a camp kitchen set up with 2 hobs.

Despite it's size, the tent only took around 40 mins to put up (in a strong wind!).

We weren't charged any extra for the size of our tent which was nice.

The only slight gripe for me, is trying to get it back in the bag afterwards!

Looking forward to another camping trip this summer though.

We have owned this tent for a few years now and we have never found fault with its performance, keeps out the rain well,has good ventilation and loads of room,the two sleeping rooms are much larger compared to other three birth rooms,in floor area and height than other tents I have tried which makes it great for tall people like me.

The tent does take a little practice to get up quickly quickest we have managed is close to 40 minutes but then again thats just us,it says in the blurb above that the tent was not released till 2007 and that it pitches fly first it does not it pitches inner first I can guarantee this as it always worrys me if pitching when the clouds come over.

All in all the whole family love this tent and with good reason.

We looked around for ages before buying a tent and could not decide on one we all liked until we saw this one and were all in instant agreement!

There are four of us and with two in each sleeping pod there is plenty of room for getting dressed etc. Great headroom in all parts and the living area is sewn in and we use it for 'overnight guests' to sleep in!

The porch makes a great kitchen or on rural sites, we put the porch to the back and put the porta potti in there, using the back door to go in and out of the tent. There are loads of vents so no condensation problems. The front door can be used as an awning. There are 2 windows and a porch sunlight in the newer models and organiser pockets in the main area. There is also a zippy thing for an ehu to go through.The newer models are a lighter colour which is great if you are stuck inside on a rainy day.

Easy to pitch, easy to get back into the bag, easy to live in, easy on the pocket. I love my Royal tent!
