WRITING EXAM (CLM JUNE 2014, OPTION 2)
Recently you used the webpage bookit.com to organize a trip to a European city. On arrival
the hotel was full and you were relocated to another one miles away. There wasn't a family
room so you and your children had to sleep in different rooms. Furthermore, the hotel
reception and staff in general were not very helpful. To make things worse the buffet was
also very limited.
Write a complaint email in 200-250 words, and at least 3 paragraphs, with details about
what happened and ask for some action to be taken.
