Hotel manager laments over high rate of towel theft…
The Manager of a hotel in Nigeria has taken to social media to raise the alarm over the rising cases of theft in the hotel, especially of towels.
He narrated how the hotel has had to replace almost 600 towels within a three month period.
The man simply identified as @officialKoya, wondered if it would be a wise idea to start searching customers bags while they are checking out or if the hotel should stop supplying towels.
Koya shared; ”How can we curb hotel theft especially Towels?..
”In space of three months, we don order almost 600 new towels…. Boya wẹ shuu be searching customer bag ni? Àbí wẹ shuu stop providing towels.”
See how netizens reacted..
@Danny_Walterr; If I sleep in 10 hotels in a week, I have 10 new Towels
@lollypeezle; People now carry artworks and cloth hangers in the room. Towel sef small
@Engr_Chijioke; During inspection before check out, as you are adding the drinks and snacks from the mini bar and fridge, add the towel fee too.. You don’t need to embarrass your guest. Just add his fees and hand it to him respectfully.
@Drmuzoic;People should be made a refundable fee when they check in, that will be tied to properties in the room
There should be an inspection of the room before allowing customers check out. Having notes with “do not take towels/items away” If it continues, then start searching bags.
@espeezeal; Lol just accept towels are supposed to be souvenirs. Especially when the hotel is over priced
@StevenOdunze; Walahi na serious matter be this, I managed a hotel and was able to overcome this ,most times the house keepers also contribute by disposing towels that’ll prove tough or too dirty to wash .. consult.
@TanimolaKolade; Abi let them use serviette papers as towel
@ChikaUsulor; Na the exorbitant amount Una dey charge dey cause am. Though it’s a bad thing to steal towels ooo.
@kalukingsley1; Hand it over to them handy as they check in and expect them return it while checking out . ( Reason will be you send it to laundry from there to make it ready for another person)
@HavilahLand; Apply the method of issuance on arrival and Return Of same on clearance before leaving the hotel
