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!

I entered the station, looked around to see a TV hanging on the wall and asked the clerk if it was possible to watch the game and she answered with a firm yes.
