1.1 Background of the Study

A guest house (also guesthouse) is a kind of lodging. In some parts of the word a guest house is similar to a hostel, bed and breakfast, or inn whereas in other parts of the world (such as for example the Caribbean), guest houses are a type of inexpensive hotel like lodging. In still others, it is a private home which has been converted for the exclusive use of guest accommodation. The owners usually lives in an entirely separated area within the property and the guest house may serve as a form of lodging business.

In some areas of the world, guest houses are the only kind of accommodation available for visitors who have no local relatives to say with. Among the features which distinguish a guest house from a hotel, bed and breakfast, or inn is the lack of a full-time staff. Bed and breakfasts are usually family owned, with the family living on the premises. Hotels maintain a staff presence 24hours a day and 7days a week, whereas a guest house has a more limited staff presence. Because of limited staff presence, check in at a guest is often by appointment. An inn also usually has restaurant attached.

Guesthouses are a type of lodging and accommodation for tourists, both local and international in their various destinations. Good guesthouse management ensures the provision of clean, safe and comfortable accommodation that satisfies the needs of their guests.
