I can't speak highly enough of this property, not just because it had the highest level of cleanliness I have ever experienced, but because of the staff courtesy, the pride in the hotel they serve showing in every transaction.
Check-in counter folk had a sense of humour, smiled with genuine warmth and wanted us to enjoy every experience as their guests. The room was spotless, and I mean Spotless, with every nook and cranny free of dust or grime. My benchmark is the door jambs on the inside of the bathroom. You will nearly always see traces of rot or accumulated gloop where they meet the floor tiles. Not so at the Cititel. Like new. Perfect marks to housekeeping.
Breakfast was simply superb, with the F&B Manager the first to ask if everything was OK and if we were to find anything to correct, to let him know immediately. We couldn't fault any aspect of the dining. The furniture and floor sparkled and the food selection as vast as any prince might demand. In short, it is now my Value and Quality standard setter but I think I'll be travelling for a long time before it is matched again, let alone surpassed.
Put this hotel on your Must Visit list. Not only will you will not be disappointed, you will be delighted.
