Very good deal for the money, but just be aware that any pod style tent can be "interesting" to pitch if you dont have enough help at hand or the weather isnt too great.

That said, if a pod style tent is your thing, this does look to be pretty good.
Looks huge, and good value. Is Vacanza a budget Outwell though?

Yep, Vacanza is Outwells budget range... but as to what compromises are made I really dont know.

I would always test pitch any brand tent you buy these days. Virtually all tents are now made in Chine (surprise) and the quality control leaves a lot to be desired at times. This goes for premium brand tents as much as your cheap argos own brand.
Think I read somewhere that this tent is too big for some campsites. Might not be this one but I'm sure it was a vango and was the same style.

It was just a comment/review from a user though so not sure of accuracy.
better have a big boot it weighs in at 5 stone
