Staff offered further assistance with luggage, directions, or transportation services/suggestion. The Hotel Feedback form was presented to the guest to fill up during the check-out process. Staff spoke last, offered thanks, and an invitation to return after guests checked out.

Housekeeping Department

A safe, clean and comfortable room is the most major part to attain high guest satisfaction and reputation. A printed or E-Checklist can be used by the Housekeeping supervisor/staff to perform room inspection. Apart from maintaining a clean and comfortable room for guests, a checklist also helps to remind both the Housekeeping Supervisor / Executive and the cleaner of any defects and missing amenities for the guest. Thus, room inspection of every room must be done on a daily basis by the housekeeping supervisor.
