7 uses the passive voice
8 is more objective
b. Underline the facts and circle the generalisations in the first model.
MODEL 1
To: Mr Robertson
From: Sally Smith
Subject: Travellers' Accommodation in Maytown
Introduction
This report was written to analyse the results of a recent survey about the city's
hotels. In this survey, hotel managers from the city's 25 hotels were asked about
the hotel's size, rooms, services available and prices.
Hotel facilities
The majority of hotels in Maytown are well equipped, with air-conditioned
rooms, television and private bathrooms. This is shown by the fact that 70% of
hotels offer these facilities. The usual services are also provided by most of the
hotels. This is shown by the fact that nearly all of the hotels surveyed provide
room service, laundry service and a free maid service. However, free exercise
facilities are not so usual. In fact only 3% of the hotels offer free use of an
exercise room. On the other hand, swimming facilities are available, with 80%
of the hotels having outdoor pools and 4% having both indoor and outdoor
facilities. Access to food and drink is obviously considered important. This is
shown by the fact that all of the hotels surveyed have a bar area and restaurant.
Prices
In general, the price-range of Maytown's hotels is quite high. Our survey
showed that the average price of a double room is between £85 and £120 per
night. Added to this, only 14% of the hotels include breakfast in the basic price.
Conclusion
The survey clearly indicates that Maytown has only a certain category of hotels.
On the whole, the existing hotels are well-equipped, comfortable and offer
excellent services. However, there seems to be a lack of lower-priced hotels for
the more price-conscious traveller.
