Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are planning to spend a weekend in the city of Edinburg with my whole family – my wife, me and two young children, and I am hoping that you would ensure a comfortable and enjoyable weekend stay at your hotel. My arrival date would be the 3rd of august and the departure date would be the 5th of the same month.

Now, as for the kind of rooms I would prefer, it has to be one large family suite with two bedrooms, with two king-size beds in them, a balcony and Wi-Fi internet service. The suite should have a refrigerator to store some food, and a microwave oven to warm up the food. I also hope that our room comes with a complimentary breakfast. So, please inform me about the total cost of the weekend at your hotel.

Finally, I would also like to get some information on the activities and interesting places nearby the hotel so that my whole family can make the best out of their holiday weekend, away from home.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Charles

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to inquire about arrangements for a weekend stay for my family of five members at your hotel. My family and I are planning to visit your hotel and would like to make the necessary arrangements in advance.

We will be arriving on Friday and leaving on Sunday, and our arrival date would be 17th June. So we would like to book two of your double rooms for two nights with a sea view. Could you please let us know how much the weekend will cost and if there are any promotions or discounts available?

In addition, we are interested in knowing about the activities and places of interest near the hotel. Are there any beaches, restaurants or historic sites nearby that we could visit? Could you please provide us with any information that would be helpful for our stay?

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we hope to have the opportunity to stay at your hotel.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours faithfully,

Joseph Banks
