General Training Writing Task 1 Sample 125 - You have left a bag at the hotel

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have just spent a weekend staying at the Lilo Hotel in Adelaide. When you get home you find that you have left a bag at the hotel.

Write a letter to the manager of the hotel. In your letter:

  • Introduce yourself
  • Describe the bag and its content
  • Describe how you left your bag and what action you would expect from him/her.

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write your own address

Model Answer 1:

Dear manager,

I am Fahd Sultan and I stayed at your hotel from 22nd August to 25th August 2015. My room number was D-2-54. I am writing for your assistance in finding my bag that I have left in room number 54 during my stay at your hotel on 25th August.

Firstly, I am pleased to have outstanding services and facilities provided by your hotel. I really enjoyed it and I would definitely like to come again. Secondly, I would like you to help me in locating my handbag, which is of black colour and having blue stripes on both ends. It is about one foot wide with two zippers are attached to it.

The bag has important documents and some of my personal belongings including contact cards, pen and a diary. You are already aware of the fact that main purpose of visiting Adelaide is to attend the company meeting. So the documents in the bag are very important to me. Please check with your lost and found department about the bag and inform me at your earliest, so that I can come to pick my bag.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours faithfully,

[ Written by - Fahad Sultan ]

I do not think there is any need to write your name in starting of the letter if you have to write it at the end. Please correct me if I am wrong.

In the second paragraph, you should usually write the name.
