Task: Read the text fill in the gaps in the table – work groups.
We booked an en suite room, so bathroom was joined to the bedroom.
We needed a double room for my husband and me and a single for my mother but they didn’t have any so we had to look a triple for the three of us.
This is a bed-and-breakfast hotel, so we won’t need to worry about our morning meals.
You’ll have to pay 30 dollars more of you want full board, but then you’ll have to come the hotel for every meal.
We can’t book any doubles, only singles are available for this date.
We stayed at a five star hotel with all possible facilities: bathroom, TV, mini-bar, telephone and other things.
