Property Description

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 with lounge and the Caboose - an on-suite room with balcony.

Double and single rates include a free continental breakfast. An additional hot breakfast upgrade is available on request at a small extra cost.

All Royal suite bookings include a complimentary hot breakfast as well.

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 your budget and 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.

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.

    Amazing location, from your rooms you can hear the ocean and you can enjoy watching the sunrise from your bed! Really quirky place to stay, with the rooms and bathrooms on the train! Great little restaurant bar attached which was good value for money. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

    Truly a unique experience for any traveler. Possibly one of the coziest and breathtaking sunrises to witness from inside the cabin. Thoroughly enjoy our stay.

    Good Hostel and well located. I had to leave early for the shark dive, so I didnt have breakfast there. The rooms are small, basically there is room only for the bed, you cant even open the luggage inside it. Even so, it is an amazing experience to sleep in a train cabin, listening to the waves just outside the window.

    Pros- close to swimming beach, bar is nice, ocean front Cons- 1 power strip and few lockers for 12 person dorm, WiFi never worked, no real common area, 20-40 minute walk into town Bottom line- it’s a train by the ocean! But it’s more of a hotel... with a dorm. B&B staff were friendly enough but the restaurant and bar staff were the nicest. Not great for solo travel imo
