Use commas when adding extra information

If you want to add extra information that is not important to a sentence, the information should have a comma before and after it.

  • Audrey, who is very tired, is going on holiday next week.
    (The commas before and after who is very tired are needed because this information is not important for the sentence.)
  • Our hotel, which only had eight rooms, was fantastic.
