Boston Spa is buzzing about a new hotel but this des-res won’t be rated on TripAdvisor by its clients.
The village’s In Bloom group has built a five-star, four floor Bug Hotel which is open for business in Church Fields.
“At the beginning of the year we began working with local joiner Tom Brothwell to design and build a bug hotel specifically for the village,” said Boston Spa In Bloom spokesman David Watts.
“The intention was to create a perfect environment to encourage and sustain some of the wildlife already native to our countryside.”
The building is constructed from tantalised timber with a sedum roof of 16 different varieties to create colour and interest, as well as enhancing biodiversity.
“The design incorporates spaces for different species of insects, frogs and toads, and even a special entrance for hedgehogs,” added Mr Watts.
“We’re very happy to declare the hotel open, for guests to stay for as long as they’d like to.”
