From airport take N2 to Somerset West. Take R44/Somerset West turn-off, at top of ramp turn left. First traffic lights turn right. Follow Main Road towards town, after BP service station on the left, get into right hand lane. Turn right into Coronation Avenue, then immediately right again into North Avenue - Penny Lane Lodge is No 5.
