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!

... tonight and just concentrated on the thought of getting back to Reykjavik in one piece, especially when we passed the wreck of a minibus which had gone off the road.
As we reached the lights of the town the storm eased and magically disappeared. As we drew up at our hotel we were pleased to have taken part in this fantastic tour with a great group of people. A fantastic and very different evening, even without those green gremlins in the sky!
