The Cabin hotel is clean and comfortable but very small. We paid £140 for 4 nights, about £18 per person per head. In this price you got a breakfast included. Again this wasn't an earth shattering breakfast but perfectly adequate. This hotels is good if you aren't going to be there a lot and you just want to get your head down at night. For us we were out all day and most of the evening so we just used it as a base. The location is about a 20-25 minute walk to the city centre, depending what side of town you want to go to. Across the road there is a petrol station with a shop and a subway so if you need to grab some food there is something there most of the night (I think the garage was 24 hours). If you head out of town, on the same road, there is a public pool, which was mostly outside and used by locals and tourists a like. It is marked on the free city guide you can pick up in reception. If you are on a budget and can't afford the frankly quite expensive blue lagoon the city pools are a good way of experiencing the thermal water. In fact in my opinion the £2.50 ish is costs is realy good and I preferred the public pool because they had a different temperture pools.
All of the excursion companies picked up from the hotel and it was quite good as you got dropped off first normally.
All in all this hotel is very good for the money and I don't think it is too far from town plus there are city buses if you need mobility assistance or are too lazy to walk into town. I would avoid cabs they are notoriously expensive.
