Santos Express Train Lodge Reviews


The Santos Express Train Lodge is a genuine train situated on the Santos Beach in Mossel Bay with all cabins facing the sea. With the ocean so close, you can’t really beat its unbelievable position and exquisite views. An invigorating sea breeze keeps everything cool even on really hot days.

We offer a unique stay in a double compartment or single coupe similar to the Trans Karoo. We are 5-10 min walk from the Dias Museum Complex, Harbour and Town Centre.

We have 5 coaches, of which 4 are identical, with 5 compartments (2-4 sleeper), 2 coupe’s (1-2 sleeper), 2 toilets and 1 shower. The 5th coach is divided into a 16 bed Dorm with lounge and the Caboose - an on-suite room with balcony.

We have also recently added two vintage wooden coaches called the Royal Suites. These were built in 1919 and 1921 respectively, then transported by boat from England to South Africa where they served the Rovos Rail company until they were decommissioned and made their last journey by rail to join our fleet in December 2013.

Double and single rates include a free continental breakfast and we also have an option to upgrade to an additional hot breakfast. We can accommodate a max of 114 pax and have special STO rates for groups of 30 pax and more (Low season). Seasonal rates apply. Menus can be customized to suit any budget and special requirements.

Our happening restaurant and bar serves all day breakfast, and other delicious meals such as steaks, seafood and our most famous traditional meals, that can be served inside or on the sundeck. The restaurant is open from 7:30 am until late
Our staff is on the ball and can help with all travel and adventure arrangements such as shark cage diving, boat-based whale watching, sky diving, game drives, quad biking, deep-sea fishing, pleasure boat trips to Seal Island etc.

We also offer the following services: BBQ; Internet & Wi Fi; Phone cards & Airtime; Baz Bus Stop; Laundry and Security.

Check us out in the Rough guide, Lonely Planet etc. We have been here a very long time and know how to do it
