Overview

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 you 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 and the Caboose (-an en- 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 a luxury rail company until they were decommissioned and made their last journey by rail to join our fleet in December 2013.

Extensive renovations commenced immediately and we now have four royal suites, all with private sea view decks and en-suite facilities. These have proven extremely popular, even resulting in a television news broadcast. The colonial feel, authentic woodwork and attention to detail makes these extra special.

Double and single rates include a free continental 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.

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.

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, bungee jumping, and pleasure boat trips to Seal Island etc.

Guest Comments

Absolutely wonderful experience! Great service and we were thoroughly impressed with the way we were received and taken care of. They gave us glasses with ice when we asked, extra blankets and even went the extramile to get us soy milk for breakfast. The view is fabulous!

Worth it!!!
