Is there restaurant near the hotel
There is a small one located about 1.5 km away. Turn right outside the main hotel driveway and keep walking/driving. It is ok to dine there but I preferred to eat in the hotel restaurant which I thought was very good.

Hi the hotel has a tea and coffee maker if you lucky enough to get it. Last time I didn't even had the necessary toiletries. They have a supermarket close but I am not sure about the policy of food that you can bring into hotel. As far as I know they have a shuttle bus but I don't know if is free of charge. Good luck!
