Dear Sir,

I am writing with regard to our less-than stellar accommodations. My family and I have various complaints about the state of our lodgings.

My name is Mr Jesper Fahey and I came to London with my family for a little vacation. This bed-and-breakfast was listed among other supposedly highly ranked lodgings in a newspaper I'd before deciding to stay here. Upon our arrival, though, I was dismayed to see that the condition of our quarters was below average, to say the least.

The sofas were threadbare with springs jutting out in inconvenient areas, the beds would emit abhorrently loud groans when sat upon, not to mention the state of disuse everything seemed to be in- not in a good way- as there was a thick layer of dust over almost everything in the apartment. The curtains were threadbare and seemed to be chewed out, in some area, by rodents. The state of the bathrooms was repulsive. The drains seemed clogged and the faucets released the water with a pitiful amount of pressure.

Please do see to it that the repairs needed in this apartment are attended to for future reference and for the good of your own establishment.

Thank you, nonetheless, for providing us with lodgings for our stay; I truly appreciate it.

Kind regards,

Mr Fahey.
