    Hello! This is my first time here, so forgive me if I make some mistakes.
    I work in a touristic village and I must send confirmation email/letters to our guest.
    As ending clause I would like to say:
    Nella speranza (o nell'attesa) di averLa come nostro gradito ospite.....
    I would say in English:
    I look forward to welcoming you as our guest....
    Is it correct?
    Thank you in advance.

    Yes it is correct and very appropriate.

    Another "standard" closing sentence is: we look forward to the opportunity of serving you but I think that your sentence has a warmer feel.

    You are welcome.

    A tip: instead of writing a new post, you could have corrected your post containing the typo by clicking the "edit" button. After making the correction, you click "save."
