CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Roundel et la (2007) define Hospitality as friendly and generous behaviour towards visitors and guests, intended to make them feel welcome: food, drink, room and entertainment given to customers by a company or organization. Another scholar Copper et al (1996) gave the definition of hospitality by Nailon (2011) is the combination of physiological and psychological elements with security and level of service. Hospitality is concerned with the provision of physiological comfort within define levels of service. Hotels provide meals, drinks, attraction, accommodation etc. to give general public or persons in transit especially people travelling to places where they have neither their own homes nor any relation to cater for their needs. Such persons will like to know few things about the hotels in their transitory area. In other words, the room and Euit fares, and the types of food served, the necessary comfort customers are accorded with the game available and perhaps and other especial feature that make such hotels appealing to the sojournes in transit. Hospitality industry like hotelling is a competitive business and must endeavour to identify and eating customers needs to be able to stay in business.

The establishment of hotels and recreational centres in Nigeria has ultimately helped in the socio economic development of the country. For this development that has been as a result of the building and establishment of these hotels to be lasting, the challenges controlling the hospitality development in Nigeria has to be limited as negligence of these challenges may lead to the shutting down of the already existing ones thereby discouraging entrepreneurs from investing on profitable niche of business known as the hospitality sector of Nigeria.

       The problem of lack of the necessary infrastructure is also seriously affecting the hotel industry. The country is besieged by poor and communication system. Unreliable power supply (etc) the consequences of this infrastructure  problem in most hotels is that the telephones cannot function properly as it ought to be. In most of the big hotels, electricity supply plants were purchased and boreholes were sunk to substitute the inadequate electricity supply and irregular water supply respectively.

1.6 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

       In a study like this type, a lot of setback are bound to come up, this work is restricted by many variables.

1.  TIME: Since the research will be carried out at students level, the researcher will have to allot his/her time such that the demand for their courses will have to be met. Moreover, since the interview will be conducted during the working days of the work the researcher will have to forfeit some of her lectures in order to successful conduct the study.

2.  FIANCE: insufficient fund will be another factor inhibiting this research project. The work was single – handing sponsored by the researcher.

Apart from the fact that some of the staff that will be required to give data are not technically skillfull in the area of study, many of them may think that the researcher is one of the government functionaries that come to question their activities or to access them for tax payment. This may be due to the fact that the school authority has been reluctant to introduce the researcher to the establishment formally by issuing identity papers or introduction papers to the students.

4.  GENERAL ECONOMIC PROBLEM: The last but not the least limiting factor in the work was the general economic problem facing the entire country as at this point in time when the research was carried out considering the above constraints, the researcher was able to come up with a good results.
