Dear Ms. Doe,

Thank you for your letter dated November 24, 2010 regarding your suggestion that we have to implement “non-smoking areas” in our hotel. You are indeed correct that we have to provide both non-smoking and smoking areas in our hotel such us in the dining area.

Our management has looked into this matter and decided to make changes in our policy. We will strictly implement smoke-free areas and there will be designated areas for smoking customers.

We certainly appreciate your time and efforts to make this very helpful suggestion. Our guests, like you are our first concern and we thank you for your comments to improve our services.

Complaint Letter on Poor Customer Service

A letter of complaint citing poor customer service implies that something has been done to create an air of discontent. It may be a discourteous staff member, or it may be an error in billing, or poor housekeeping services, or any customer concern which has not been properly addressed.

Whatever the factors that caused the customer dissatisfaction, the letter writer must make sure the complaint is valid before transmitting the correspondence to the proper person, usually the head of an establishment or customer service head.

A letter of complaint about poor customer service may be written in a polite and constructive manner, so that ultimately, the legitimate issues raised will be addressed and may result in better services for everybody. Here’s a sample letter complaining about poor customer service:

November 30, 2010

Ms. Marjorie Taylor
Guest Relations Manager
Sugar Beach Resort
Maui, Hawaii 98765

Dear Ms. Taylor:

My husband and I stayed at Sugar Beach Resort last November 20-21 and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, the clean surroundings, and complete resort amenities. It was everything we expected, except that we had an unpleasant encounter with one of your staff members.

While we acknowledge that it was a very busy weekend and the resort-hotel’s housekeeping staff was all doing their best, we had hope to experience good customer service. During the second day of our stay, we noticed that our room hadn’t been serviced even though we were gone the whole morning. We brought this to the attention of the housekeeping personnel and requested for some fresh towels. The housekeeping staff assigned to our area irritably said she will get to it, but the rest of the day went by and our room was not spruced up. Housekeeping did send up the towels but we were already packing to leave.

Please know that we would have loved to refer your resort to our friends, but there is clearly a need to improve the customer relations of your staff members. I hope you look into the matter and ensure it is not repeated.

Thank you & Sincerely,

Sophia Carter

Customer Revival Sales, Product Sales


It has been so long since we have had the opportunity to
be of service to you, that I have begun to wonder if
perhaps, we have offended you in some way in the past.

If this is the case, I would greatly appreciate knowing
what happened. In fact, if you have any grievance with
our firm, I wish that you would call so that we might
discuss the problem.

We have introduced many innovations into our product line
since the last order you placed with our firm, and if the
reason we haven’t heard from you has nothing to do with a
complaint, we would appreciate having the opportunity to
show you these innovations.

In either case, it would be wonderful to hear from you.

Customer Revival Sales, Preferred Customer Private Sale


We have missed you!

We didn’t see you at our Summer Sale and we didn’t see you
at our Fall Sale, either. So, after putting our heads
together here at Lord & Chambers, we concluded that one
possible reason for your having stayed away so long might
be that you don’t like crowds. We came up with the
following solution:

Customer Incentive Program Announcement


As a valued customer of [name of company], we couldn’t
wait to bring you the good news. This letter is to
announce the incorporation of our new customer incentive
program (CIP?). Well, maybe we haven’t thought of a great
logo for it yet, but if you read on I think you’ll agree
that no matter what we call it, it’s super!

Starting on June 1st, a record of your account with our
store will be maintained on a cumulative basis for a
period of one year. Once your purchases have reached
$500, you will be automatically entitled to a 5% discount
on any order placed, including orders for sale items.
When your orders have reached the $1,000 mark, your
discount will increase to 10%. A $1,500 accumulation of
orders will entitle you to a 15% discount and once you
have reached $2,000 you will receive 20% off all
merchandise orders. We think it’s a great idea and hope
that you agree.

Won’t you send us a purchase order today to get you
started on your way? If you think of a good name for us
to tag onto this new discount program, please let us know!
