Hotelli kivalla paikalla Stone Townin keskustassa, lyhyt matka Slave Marketille ja isohkolle basaarille. Hotellin omasta rannasta saa tilattua venekuljetuksen Prison Islandille, missä on suuri maakilpikonnien suojelualue. Hotellissa on huoneisto missä Freddie Mercury on asunut nuorena poikana. Hotelli käsittää kolme eri rakennusta, joissa ei ole hissejä, johtuen rakennusten iästä ja historiallisesta arvosta.
