Dear Sir/Madam,
As you are aware, the pupils of Fairview School
plan to hold an end-of-term party next month.
I am writing on their behalf to suggest a
possible venue.
The size of the location is obviously a main
priority, as approximately 150 people are
expected to attend. The Beaufort Hotel’s
function room appears to be a good option,
since it is extremely spacious, holding up to
200 people. In addition, the huge dance floor
would ensure sufficient room for sound
equipment and dancing.
Another important factor is the catering. The
hotel can provide light refreshments at a
reasonable cost, which would be convenient.
All things considered, I wish to recommend the
Beaufort Hotel as a suitable location for our
party. I would appreciate it if you could inform
us of your decision on the matter as soon as
Yours faithfully,
Eleanor Wright
