A HOTEL with a difference has opened and is attracting hundreds of guests.

The Bug Hotel has opened at Banwell allotments and is now open for ladybirds, hoverflies and other insects wanting a rest after a hard day of munching on greenfly.

The hotel was built by cubs from 1st Banwell Scouts and features ceramic work made at the Brandon Trust’s pottery in the village.

The unusual addition to the allotment site in Wolvershill Road was built to attract ladybirds, hoverflies and lace wings to eat the green and white flies feasting on Banwell Allotment Society member’s vegetables.

The cubs used plastic bottles, corrugated cardboard, canes, sticks and wooden pallets to build the hotel.
