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.

Dry cool and unique place. We stayed one night and loved the ocean Sou d and being able to walk the beach in the morning. The basic room was sufficient for a night - if you are tall or staying a long time they may be less enjoyable as they are quite small. The only thing that would help improve this is wifi on the rooms.

It is the worst hostel ever, there is no common erea to meet other travelers and the whole place just focus on the restaurant and nothing else.

What a great time we had! It is an epic place for a short stay. As it is located right in front of the beach, it was easy to go for a swim and watch sunrise/sunset. Although the room was small, it was clean and nice. The people working at Santos Express are extremely diligent and helpful. What a great service they offer. I highly recommend the place for a short stay!
