  2. Summary of this paper: 2 This paper examines the effect of hotels green service attributes on consumer trust and resulting re-patronage intention. The author considers 12 certified green hotels around oceans in India. These hotels are from two metro and one non-metro cities. The author conducted a survey (with designed questionnaire) to collect relevant data. To examine the aforementioned objective the author also include the role of environmental values and purpose of travel. Unlike Scale framework, the authors use alternative framework proposed by Kreidler and Mathews (2009) based on Stimulus-organism-response (S-O-R) framework. The empirical results show that Green Service Encounters (GSE)brings consumer trust in green claims and that consumers trust in hotels green service claims enhances re-patronage intention. The results also show that impact of GSE on trust is greater for business travellers and that the impact of GSE on trust is greater for travellers with high environmental values.

  3. My overall comment: 3 Informative and it is a interesting contribution to green/sustainable ocean tourism and hospitality industry. Using various available conceptual framework the paper conceptualizes a unique construct of GSE that is more inclusive and representative of the objective. Research hypothesis are clearly defined and subsequently answered in discussion. The paper provides theoretical contribution, policy implication and limitations, and future research direction

  4. Specific Comments and suggestions for improvement 4 The paper seems to be very lengthy (48 pages and about 12 thousand words) The acronyms needs to be defined first in the paper. (exp: for S-O-R on page 3 and 5) In Table 7, on interaction terms, I did not understand the logic when you imply that a business travel leads to higher trust ..and so does environment values.. why not a leisure travel? Some clarity needed on interpretation of the results. It would be nice if author makes some comparison of the findings with other similar works and perhaps how it differs. It is not clear how author obtain data on travel purpose and environmental values as it its not shown in Table 3 Item Descriptives

  5. 5 Sample hotels: only from around the ocean cities. Inference based on this on other hotels could be biased. Response rate is crucial parameter in sampling. It is below 50% in the paper. Under representation of the target population - Hotels? The author selected the control variables of travel purpose and environmental values in GSE and trust/re-patronage nexus. In the theoretical literature, there are many crucial indicators like food quality, service delivery, etc. do matter for trust and re-patronage intention. The omission of those important variables may mislead the results too. For Moderation test using HMRA - Is it possible to check this using some other methodologies to ensure robustness of the findings.
