Dear Sir or Madam,



Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you to make the necessary arrangements for our stay at your hotel on 22nd and 23rd November. I will travel with my parents, wife and 7 years old son. I am hoping that you would be able to provide us with suitable accommodation and assist us to enjoy our trip.

We will arrive on 22nd November and check out from your hotel on 24th November before 12.00 pm. We are expecting two double size bedrooms with attached bathrooms, hot water and air cooler facilities. We would prefer rooms with the sea view and room service. I would really appreciate if the rooms are on the same floor.

I am also interested to know about recreational activities in the vicinity. Despite my parent’s age, they are very lively and would love to go to the theatre, beach and amusement parks, if available. I would also like to know about a market, where we can buy traditional items and souvenirs.

Please notify me of the cost that will incur on our trip at your earliest with the facilities you can offer. I am expecting a comprehensive reply from your side about the details of activities and other information I requested.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Fahad Sultan

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am planning to spend a weekend with my family at your hotel and would like to request you to make the necessary arrangements for us. My wife and my daughter will accompany me and I hope you can arrange a large deluxe room for us from 14th July to 16th July. I am hoping that you would inform me of the availability of the room with a few other details at your earliest.

We will be arriving on Thursday, 14th July at around 3:00 pm. We will spend the weekend and will check-out from the hotel on Saturday- 17th July, before 11.30 am. Please make sure that the room has a balcony, attached bathroom and air cooler and offers a sea view. Not to mention, the room should be large and adequately furnished.

Kindly let me know the cost of spending the weekend at your hotel for the mentioned dates. Also, advise if you have any weekend package for the families.

We will be visiting the place for the first time, so I would appreciate if you could inform us about the places worth visiting.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Mansoor Rahim
