There are lots of shops behind the hotel.There is lots of water sold. I did not buy any wine or beer but there are supermarkets around and they will probably sell them.

Not sure of the times but the hotel should be able to advise - they replied to me using the contact tab on their website. Breakfasts were busy, but the food was plentiful, varied and well replenished.
