IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

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

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write your own addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I stayed at your Lilo Hotel in Adelaide from 2nd to 5th April 2019 in room 254. I am writing for your assistance in finding the bag that I have left in the room during my stay at your hotel.

Firstly, I am gratified to have outstanding service at your hotel. I really enjoyed it and I would definitely like to come again. Now, I would like you to help me locate my bag. It is a black bag and has blue stripes on both ends with two zippers attached to it.

The bag that I left at your hotel contains some important documents and some of my personal belongings including contact cards, a few dresses, pens and a diary. You are already aware of the fact that I visited Adelaide to attend a professional meeting. To keep pace with my colleagues, I hurried to check out and left the bag in the closet. 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,

Fahad Sultan

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