This research attempts to fulfil the gap by using HOLSERV measurement instrument. HOLSERV is developed to measure the service quality in tourism, comprised with three factors named employee, tangibles, and reliability.

Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) followed by Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was employed to examine the postulated relationship. The results supported the proposed hypotheses. Employees, tangibles, and reliability are confirmed as factors of hospitality service quality by CFA. Employee factor ascertained to be an important factor by SEM. From the results and findings of this study, implications have been drawn, limitations were given, and recommendations were made for future researchers
