Andrew: Okay, I’m sure we can help you with that. Will you be having a sit down meal or a buffet?

Samantha: Probably sit down on DH.

Andrew: Do you know how many people will be

Samantha: around 80? I think.

Andrew: Well, we have two rooms that can hold that Number one is the Adelphia Room, that conceit 85 or hold over 100. If people are standing for a buffet, right. If you have live music, there’s room for four or five musicians in the gallery overlooking the room. Our guests usually appreciate the fact that the music can be loud enough for dancing, but not too loud for conversation.

Samantha: Yes, I really don’t like it when you can’t talk

Andrew: exactly. Now the Adelphia Room is at the back of the hotel, and there are French windows leading out onto the terrace. This has a beautiful display of pots of roses. At that time of the year,

Samantha: which direction does it face?

Andrew: South west, so that side of the hotel gets the sun in the afternoon and early evening. Very nice. From the terrace, you can see the area of trees within the grounds of the hotel, or you can stroll through there to the river. That’s on the far side so it isn’t visible from the hotel. OK, then, another option is the Carlton Room. This is a bit bigger. It can hold up to 110 people on DIT has the advantage of a stage, which is useful if you have any entertainment or indeed, a small band, conf it onto it.

Samantha: Andi, can you go outside from the room?

Andrew: No, The Carlton room is on the first floor, but on one side the windows look out onto the lake.

Samantha: Lovely. I think either of those rooms would be suitable.

Andrew: Can I tell you about some of the options we offer? In addition,

Samantha: please do

Andrew: as well as a meal. You can have an M. C. A master of ceremonies who will be with you throughout the party?

Samantha: What exactly is Thie emcees function?

I suppose they make a speech during the meal. If we need one, do they?

Andrew: That’s right. All our emcees, they’re trained as public speakers so they can easily get people’s attention. Many guests. They’re glad to have someone who can make themselves heard above the chatter, and they’re also your support. If anything goes wrong, the emcee will deal with it so you can relax.

Samantha: Great. I’ll need to ask you about food. But something else that’s important is accommodation. You obviously have rooms in the hotel, but do you also have any other accommodation like cabins, for example?

Andrew: Yes, there are five in the grounds, all self contained. They each sleep 2 to 4 people and have their own living room, bathroom and small kitchen.

Samantha: That sounds perfect for what we’ll need. Now you have various facilities, don’t you? Are they all included in the price of hiring the room, the pool, for instance?

Andrew: Normally you’d be able to use it, but it will be closed throughout September for refurbishment. I’m afraid the gym will be available, though at no extra charge. That’s open all day from six in the morning until midnight, right on the tennis courts. But there is a small additional payment for those. We have four courts, and it’s worth booking in advance if you possibly can, as they can be quite a long waiting list for them right now

Samantha: Could we discuss the food? This would be dinner around seven o’clock.
