1.0 out of 5 stars Lasted For Less Than A Year. 3 May 2013
By leecee
Verified Purchase
I bought this product last June and I have taken it down less than a year later - the roof is coming off, the ring to hook the hotel to the wall is coming out and the entire thing is ready to fall to the ground. I hadn't noticed any activity indicating that insects were using the hotel, but when I took it off the wall I found what I think are homes for bee larvae in the mortar, behind where the hotel had been hanging. For me, buying this product has proved to be a waste of my money and so, this time, I have spent a bit extra on one of the similar insect hotels available on Amazon - in the hope it will remain intact for a decent length of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insect shelter box. 1 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
For the gardener and naturalist this insect nesting box will provided a great deal of summer interest and pleasure. On a warm day you will be able to witness immediately the activities of a wide variety of such flying insects as some of our native solitary bees and small solitary wasps. The bamboo tubes which make up part of the box are immediately attractive to insects seeking domicile. Provision is also made available for the nesting accommodation of a variety of common arthropodae and arachnids. Place the box in the garden away from bird tables and feeders and against a south facing wall for winter shelter and protection. Place a shallow dish of water nearby in order to watch bees drinking. Children, especially, will be delighted with this particular design of box resembling as it does a homely domestic dwelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luxury Hotel 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
This Insect etc Hotel is extremely well made and sturdy. The fact that it has several different compartments makes it very interesting. The packaging (outer) is colourful and looks good, as it is being given as a gift this is important as most of this type of item isn't always packaged and therefore awkward to wrap. The Hotel is a Christmas gift so I don't have their reaction yet, however, I would be delighted with it as a gift and it would look good in any garden. Very good value.

Verified Purchase
I chose this bug house as a Christmas gift for a very environmentally conscious friend and liked it so much I treated myself to one too. Such a good buy and very attractive in the garden - just waiting for summer and bugs to arrive. My friend was equally thrilled with it.
