Hotel letter delayed 25 Years in the post finally delivered.

  • News

A woman from Bristol has received a letter sent to her nearly 25 years ago.


Sally Waters, who still lives in the same house in St Andrew's, said the letter was dated 27 August 1991 and contained a receipt for a deposit from the Cliffden Hotel in Teignmouth.


The sealed envelope came in a plastic bag with a sticker which said "we're sorry this item has been delayed in the post".


Royal Mail was unable to say for certain why the letter arrived so late. A spokesman said it had probably been put back into the postal system by someone, rather than being "lost in the post".


Ms Waters said she was not upset at the late delivery as it did not stop her going on the holiday she was planning for, in 1992. She wondered if the letter "fell behind a shelf and got mislaid" and said she was "quite amused" by the matter. "Somebody said I ought to frame it," she added.

Client Testimonial

I just wanted to say, fantastic job on the Summer Sale mailing, the print is excellent. It’s had a lot of praise this morning from Directors and Line Managers when I’ve handed them out.
