Great tent! We bought this last year as newbies to camping. Have used it twice so far and planning a longer summer trip. Great size, easy to put up!

We have 2 children who sleep in the same compartment together so we only put up the 2 x2 sleep pods. There is loads of space especially in wet weather when our tent is used by our friends as a chill out space or banqueting hall!

And I have managed to get it back into the tent bag on both occasions!(There are instructions I found somewhere on this site about how to pack it away)

Recommend it to all!

Fantastic tent I go away with my partner and 2 dogs and find this tent very suitable. But would love instructions on how to repack into original bag this is the only problem I have with it.

A fantastic family tent. We needed a bigger tent when we had a baby and realised just how much extra 'stuff' we would need to take with us.

Very easy to pitch, takes 2 of us approx 20 mins including putting the bedrooms in. Loads of inside space which was a real bonus when it inevitably rained on both our longer trips last year, and we had a stir crazy almost toddler pushing his cars around on the floor.

The only thing it lacks is a porch, but Khyam have upgraded last year's sun canopy to a proper porch and can highly recommend this addition!

We bought this after needing more space. Make no mistake this tent massive and with only two of us you do get some funny looks! its a well made tent and no real faults. If there is only two of you (unlikely if buying atent of this size, unless you mad like us!) you really need to be experienced in putting it up. If its windy and there is less than 3 of you it can be a struggle. All in all a great tent with loads of room.

Absolutely love this tent.

It's easy to erect and it gives you acres of living space, with 3 decent sized bedroom pods (which are removable should you want even more day time room) and good head height throughout.

The SIG keeps the bugs and drafts out and helps keep wayward toddlers in!

The additional purchase of the sun porch and carpet make this a real home from home, either for short breaks or longer stays.

My only gripe is the bag it came in is fine until you actually unpack the tent. There was NO WAY I could get it to fit back in, so we had to invest in a much larger bag.

Overall, I would recommend this tent to anyone wanting a good quality, easy to use unit at a very reasonable price.

I made the mistake of bringing back an Eddie Bauer tent that we had used in the US for beach camping trips. First time out on Exmoor it took about 10 minutes before the tent leaked and started to flood.So I bought the Ontario which we camped in last year in real comfort and in real rain. Perfect for a family of four (I always divide the suggested number of sleepers by 2). Easy to put up and loads of space and headroom. My only criticism is that once out of the supplied bag, it is not humanly possible to get it back in, so I have bought a much bigger bag with wheels. And the SIG is a real plus too.

A great all round family tent, easy to erect and a massive amount of living space especially for those rainy nights inside, and saying that it has withstood some real good old British weather!

The only fault we have had is one of the glass fibre poles breaking, though Khyam customer support sent me a whole new kit free of charge!

Great customer service!

I would recommend Khyam to anyone.
