About The Santos Express
Located overlooking Santos Beach in Mossel Bay, The Santos Express is a genuine train lodge offering accommodation with a difference! All cabins face the sea and boast spectacular sea views. Known as ‘The Train’ by Mossel Bay locals, guests can enjoy the unique and romantic experience of staying on a real train only 30m from the sea.
We offer a choice of either double, single and budget units all with 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.
Two vintage Royal coaches built in 1919 provide four luxury suites with en-suite bathrooms, coffee facilities and private sea view decks. For a bit of old world charm and comfort, try these recently renovated additions to our fleet.
