Klagan Regency, great Location, excellent service

Klagan Regency’s General Manager Narendra Sinniah

MOST travellers who check into a hotel expect a pleasant and neat establishment with a clean comfortable room. Whether the hotel is a travellers lodge or a five star resort, it is expected that it has the highest cleanliness standards such as clean public spaces, clean neat rooms and good amenities. Most hotels may advocate recycling but this should not get in the way of cleanliness.

In actual fact, a hotel is like a second home and serves one’s basic needs that is a place to sleep, rest and eat. Most  times guests are tired and they want to rest on a comfortable bed, with good solid pillows and blankets as well as spacious area to move around.

Other amenities that should meet guests requirements are good food in the restaurants, prompt and accessible services from the receptions, housekeeping area as well as the room services and careful tending to any shortcomings reported by guests.
