Subject: Transport in my town

Introduction

The purpose of this report is to describe the situation with transport in my town. It describes what kind of transport the town offers, explains the good points of the system and makes suggestions for improvements.

The transport system

In the town there are buses, local trains and taxis. The buses run in the centre of town and are fairly regular. Tickets can be purchased on the bus. The trains run to the surrounding areas during the main part of the day. Taxis are always available, especially from the main station.

The good points of the system

Transport is reasonably cheap and also there are special weekly tickets which are cheaper. In addition, the buses and the trains offer a good service, usually every ten minutes and there are maps to help visitors.

Suggestions for improvements

The buses and the trains are very old and quite often there is not enough space. My suggestion is that the companies should invest in larger, more modern buses and extra carriages on the trains to accommodate all the passengers.

Tourism in Ravenport has grown rapidly – the aim of this report is to review places to stay and suggest one for people coming to the city.

Large hotels

There are two five-star hotels in the Revenport city centre: the Majestic and the Palace. The Majestic has recently undergone refurbishment and now has air-conditioning and Internet access in all its rooms and boasts three very good restaurants. Unfortunately, what it gained in style, it lost in character and now looks similar to any other hotel, with its sterile, formal atmosphere. The Palace Hotel, on the other hand, is a little on the shabby side and is looking quite out-dated. However, it is still a very impressive place to stay with its art-deco architecture and old-fashioned accommodation.

Smaller accommodation

For the many smaller hotels and bed and breakfast, two really stand out as quality places to stay: the Hotel Viktor Hugo and the Oriental Rooms. Both places are family run business with a welcoming atmosphere and clean rooms which can be a bit on the small side. That said, both places tend to somewhat rule-bound which means that the guest is restricted in their time of arrival, breakfast and what time they are allowed to stay out.

Recommendation

With a wide range of accommodation in all price ranges, it really is down to personal taste, but if you want to experience a taste of authentic Ravenstown hospitality, I would recommend staying at the Palace Hotel for at least one night.
