Writing Task 1: Writing an Email

Read the following information.

You and your friends are planning to go to Dubai on vacation. You have to arrange the best hotel therefore, you want the detail of the hotel room and other available facilities in the hotel.

Write an email to the Manager of the hotel in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things:

  • Request him to provide the details of the hotel
  • Write about the type of room and any special needs or requests such as a smoking or nonsmoking room

Dear Manager, I am Sam, got your reference from a friend of mine who visited Dubai and stayed at your hotel. He gave us excellent reviews. I, along with some of our friends, are planning to visit Dubai in the next couple of weeks. I would appreciate if you can provide some details of your hotel. Firstly I would like to know your location and how far is it from the International airport? Secondly, I need information about the types of rooms available, 24/7 room service, and also available food options. Thirdly, I am interested in knowing if you provide a couple of wheelchairs as we have elderly persons in our group who might need them, when we go around sightseeing, preferably motorized wheelchairs. I need to know about smoking and non-smoking rooms, as some of us are travelling with kids and may prefer non-smoking rooms. Finally, and most importantly, do give me a rough estimate of how much it would cost us, we are a group of 10 adults and four kids. I look forward to your response. Thank you in anticipation. Regards, Sam
