cheap enough place to say in a great location, rooms clean, although shower is sulphury as expected, breakfast adequate and they are happy to have it ready early for early trips etc. Staff sorted trip to blu lagoon, airport bus with no complications. Chines place round corner good for sub 10 quid meal. Hot dogs from stand nearby cheap but small - order 2!

... we were not picked up by the tour operator which was disappointing. I won't dwell on the negatives, and to be honest it wasn't really their fault, and our money is being refunded, so all is well.
