The option you suggested is fantastic. I had a chance to go into one once, and it impressed me. The first thing that impressed me was the amount of space compared to a standard tent. It would have been comfortable for a large group of friends, with plenty of space for everyone. But personally, it is too big tent for me, as I like to travel alone or with my best friend or my son. I often go camping in winter, as the air is particularly fresh and winter fishing is a pleasure. Without a stove in the tent it would not be possible, so I bought a waterproof cotton canvas bell tent.
