When driving from the airport or coming from the Garden Route, just continue along the N2 towards Cape Town city centre. Please make sure you follow directions to Cape Town as we have had newcomers go in the wrong direction.
Continue on the N2 for about 10 minutes and as you come up to the mountain keep right and continue towards the city – following the signs. Take the De Waal Drive turn-off to the left when the road forks and continue driving around the mountain.
Just off De Waal Drive you need to take the Mill St turn-off. This will take you past a large shopping centre (Gardens Centre) on your left hand side and then you drive through two sets of traffic lights.
The next road left (after the second set of lights at Upper Orange Street) is Hof St. It is just before the Mount Nelson hotel, so if you see that you know you have gone too far. We are two blocks up on the left hand side – a large yellow building..
Gardens is literally a 10 minute walk into the City Centre and Union Street is just a minutes walk from trendy Kloof Street with its myriad of restaurants and bars. Situated just under the majestic Table Mountain and around the corner from the world-famous Mount Nelson hotel, the location couldn't be better.
