You should say:
Where the hotel is
Why you stayed at that particular hotel
Give details description of the hotel and the view from it
and explain what makes the hotel special.
 
Is it cheating if I tell you about a Bed and Breakfast I stayed in rather than a hotel? I’m going to risk it, and tell you all about a place I stayed on holiday, what it was like and why it was so special to me.

如果我告诉你我住的不是酒店,而是一张床和早餐,这算不算作弊?我要冒这个险,告诉你我度假时住过的一个地方,那里是什么样子的,为什么对我来说很特别。

Many years ago I lost my job. I’d been covering a post while someone was on maternity leave, but then they came back and I found I didn’t have a job. Anymore! To cheer me up, two good friends of mine suggested we went away for a weekend break. One of them had found a really nice Bed and Breakfast in Anglesey, which is an Island off the coast of Wales. Nowadays it doesn’t feel so much like an island anymore because it is permanently attached to the mainland by the very famous ‘Menai Bridge’. She chose the place partly because of its spectacular location – it is surrounded by sea – but also because it was vegetarian (we all were too) and offered horse riding, which was a hobby we had in common.

许多年前我丢了工作。当有人休产假的时候,我一直在报道一个职位,但后来他们回来了,我发现我没有工作。了!为了让我高兴起来,我的两个好朋友建议我们去度周末。其中一个在安格尔西找到了一个很好的床和早餐,安格尔西是威尔士海岸外的一个岛屿。如今,它已经不那么像一座岛屿了,因为它是由著名的“梅奈桥”永久连接到大陆上的。她选择这个地方的部分原因是它的壮观的位置——它被大海包围着——但也因为它是素食主义者(我们都是素食主义者),并且提供骑马,这是我们的共同爱好。

The B&B as we call them in the UK, was, well, pretty eccentric. It was a lovely old house, with quirky rooms, dubious cleanliness and an assortment of dogs, cats, hens, ducks, ponies, and people – pretty chaotic. From the house, you could see across the Menai Straits, the stretch of sea between Anglesey and the mainland, to the snow-topped mountains of Snowdonia. It was glorious. The proprietor was one of those people who very much spoke her mind, but took you as you were, she quickly involved us in life on her small holding, feeding animals, heading off to the beach and drunkenly putting the world to rights in front of an open fire in the evening. We walked the dogs, fed the hens and galloped the horses along deserted beaches.

在英国,我们称之为B&B,是非常古怪的。这是一幢可爱的老房子,房间古怪,不干净,狗、猫、母鸡、鸭子、小马和人混杂在一起——相当混乱。从房子里,你可以看到横跨Menai海峡,安格尔西岛和大陆之间的海,到雪山顶的斯诺多尼亚山。这是光荣的。业主是非常的人说她的想法,但你,她很快涉及我们在她的小生命,喂养动物,前往海滩,醉醺醺地把面前的世界权利在晚上篝火。我们遛狗,喂母鸡,让马在荒芜的海滩上奔驰。

When the woman who owned the B&B found I didn’t have a job, she said quite simply ‘well, why don’t you come and work for me?’ I was flabbergasted, I’d never really considered that sort of a job, and I’d come on holiday not looking for employment. I hesitated, but she persisted. ‘If you like it you can stay, if you don’t you can leave – where is the risk in that?’ To cut a long story short, with unusual spontaneity and recklessness I agreed. For the next two years, I worked at the B&B looking after the horses and guests, taking out rides along the beautiful Welsh beaches and enjoying a rural lifestyle. It was brilliant, I learned a lot about animals, people and myself, and had many adventures along the way. I didn’t earn much, but I lived well in a caravan in the middle of a field with hens clucking around outside and ponies scratching their bottoms on the door of my accommodation in the mornings!

当这家B&B旅馆的老板发现我没有工作时,她很简单地说:“那么,你为什么不来为我工作呢?”“我当时大吃一惊,我从来没有真正考虑过那种工作,我来这里度假不是为了找工作。”我犹豫了,但她坚持着。“如果你喜欢,你可以留下来,如果你不喜欢,你可以离开——这样做的风险在哪里?”长话短说,带着异乎寻常的自发性和鲁莽,我同意了。接下来的两年,我在B&B工作,照顾马匹和客人,沿着美丽的威尔士海滩骑马,享受乡村生活。这是非常棒的,我学到了很多关于动物、人和我自己的知识,在这条路上我经历了很多冒险。我挣得不多,但我住在一个大篷车里,住在田野中央,母鸡在外面咯咯叫,小马在我住处的门上蹭屁股。

So for me, that remote Anglesey B&B will always be very special, because it introduced me to a different way of living and working, and gave me an appreciation of the countryside that I hadn’t really been able to experience before. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as much doing a job as I did staying there!

所以对我来说,安格尔西的B&B旅馆永远都是非常特别的,因为它给我带来了一种不同的生活和工作方式,并让我欣赏到我从未真正体验过的乡村。我想我做一件工作时从来没有像呆在那里那样笑过!
