Description

The Santos Express is a train lodge situated on Santos Beach in Mossel Bay. It is a genuine train with all cabins facing the sea. We offer you a unique stay in a double Compartment or single Coupe, which is similar to the Trans Karoo Express.

We are a five to 10-minute walk from the Dias Museum, the harbour and the town centre. Simply known as "The Train" by locals and situated in the heart of the famous Garden Route of South Africa, guests can enjoy the unique and romantic experience of staying on a real train only 30 m from the sea. With double, single and budget units, accommodation offers spectacular sea views and clean showers. A Compartment comprises four beds and a Coupè comprises two beds. Each coach comprises two Coupès, five Compartments, a communal shower and two toilets. For those celebrating that special day, we have a Caboose offering private bathroom facilities and a private balcony. For the more budget conscious, we have a Dormitory which comprises 16 beds. We also have a fabulous conference room which is ideal for weddings, birthday parties or business meetings.

Our happening restaurant and bar serves breakfast all day, as well as other delicious meals such as steaks, seafood and famous traditional meals. The restaurant is open from 7:30 am. Our staff 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, or pleasure boat trips to Seal Island.

Conference Venues: We have a fabulous conference room which is ideal for weddings, birthday parties or business meetings.

Perfect The experience is highly commendable, very friendly staff and clean facilities.

12 July 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Santos express. The best part was being right on the ocean and hearing the waves throughout the night. Compartments were clean but, obviously, very small. We did not realize that we would not have towels for the shower - as travelers, we did not carry these with us. The beds were not very comfortable, but we slept very warm. You are, unfortunately, able to hear almost everything in the compartments next to you. The light breakfast was perfect, and the staff were extremely friendly. It was an affordable overnight stay which was pleasant.

16 January 2014

We recently spent a wonderful 7 night stay at Santos Express. We had the time of our lives! The people were friendly, the beach was on our doorstep and everything was just great! I would highly recommend anyone to experience a stay in the train and we look forward to our next visit.

16 September 2013

A very pleasant stay, closer to the beach you cant sleep...will stay here again. Good Value for your money.

Our family loved this little diamond in the rough. Yes, the facilities are basic, but the pictures advertised are a true reflection of what they offer. If your family is looking for something a little different, I would definitely recommend them. The kids will love it! Not to forget, the train is right next to a stunning beach!
