From Cape Town International Airport:
- Proceed from the airport buildings onto the N2 highway, staying on the right hand side of the left lane in the direction of 'City' or 'Cape Town' (the other direction will be 'Somerset West').
- Continue along the N2 highway past all the off-ramps and after you pass the Liesbeek Parkway offramp, get into the lane second from the right, following the signs to the City.
- You will pass under two bridges and at the third bridge the road forks with the option of an offramp to the left or a bend to the right.
- Follow the bend to the right and the N2 will then merge with the M3 to form five lanes of traffic - the road then forks with the two left lanes forming De Waal Drive and the two right lanes forming Eastern Boulevard.
- Ensure that you move into one of the two left lanes as you need to proceed along De Waal Drive.
- Continue along De Waal Drive which winds its way around the foot of Table Mountain.
- As you pass under an overhead walkway, slow down as just before the overhead road bridge you need to take the offramp left into Mill Street (if you continue under the bridge, the road becomes Roeland Street).
- Continue along Mill Street (which then changes its name to Orange Street), passing through two sets of traffic lights.
- Beforethe pedestrian traffic lights on your left-hand side you will see the landmark Prince of Wales Pillars, signifying the entrance to Mount Nelson Hotel.
