Subject – Dropping hygiene inside your hotel
I am a frequent visitor to your restaurant. I have dined from here over a hundred times since 2016. I still frequent this place because the food is better than most of the hotels in South London.
However, I am writing this letter to bring to your notice a serious matter regarding the quality of food served here. The first of an instance of dropping hygiene was noticed by my colleague a month ago. He had been here on my reference. He said that he could not approve of the physical hygiene of the guy who had served him food. The man had long loose hair and unclean teeth. He had left the restaurant in great embarrassment. On the following day I personally noticed that the chicken tasted bad and the soup hadn’t been properly made. In addition to the aforesaid discrepancies, the tables and chairs retain an altogether filthy look.
