Arriving from Cape Town International Airport: Exit the airport in the direction of the N2 Cape Town, and as guests approach the city, follow signs for N2 City, Foreshore, Sea Point. Follow the N2 Stad/City signs until arriving at a large intersection with several sets of traffic lights (Coen Steytler Avenue). The CTICC is on the left-hand side (+- 22 km) and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront on the right-hand side. Proceed straight ahead along this road (M62) following the Table Mountain Cable Way/Camps Bay signs. The road follows a steep and winding ascent to the top of the hill (Kloof Nek). Without turning towards the Cable Way, descend straight into Camps Bay. Take the second road to the right, Geneva Drive, and follow its winding descent. Turn right into the 5th road, Sedgemoor Road, and straight over a stop street (Berkley Road). Chilworth Road is the very next road to the right. Turn right here and the hotel is 100 m down the road on the left-hand side.
