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.
