      Rather Disappointed”

      Photos on the web site is not a true reflection of what we intended to see especially not being specific about toilet and bathroom. So disappointing to come and realize that toilet and bathroom is shared among guests

      Not what we expected”

      We love to travel by train, preferably sleepers. This is a train with noisy carraige doors, very noisy stiff compartment doors & slippy seats to sleep on which were also hard. The security gates do not close automatically so they were left open most of the time with workers from the nearby port walking by. They need to improve the noise levels it was difficult to sleep.

      Train Travel”

      Staying on the train was so much fun that we came back for a second night. The first night was in the luxury compartment with a huge bed and private bath. The second night we stayed in the regular compartments with a shared bath. Both were great, different, but both were fun. We had sea views and the adjacent restaurant served great food and was very convenient. A nice way to experience what traveling on a train might be like and have the convenience of getting off whenever. The staff at both the train and the restaurant were exceptionally gracious and nice.

      Fast check-in. Good view of the sea. No heater for cold nights and no towels. Would appreciate if the c/o can be later at 11am so guests can enjoy a longer walk by the beach after breakfast and pack up.

      Deluxe Train to Nowhere!”

      The idea of staying on a classic old train next to the sea certainly attracted us. Such a great idea and so comfortable. At night the sounds of the sea brushing the shoreline, plus the clear morning sky early the day we stayed meant that we could see the International Space Station fly over, in all its glory, (we know it was coming and when) on one of its flights over South Africa. And then there was the breakfast ... amazing. It's a wonder we ever checked out to leave.

      Nice sea view”

      There is a beautiful see view from the "room" and you sleep with the sea waves sound

      This place is ok for 1 max 2 nights. There is bigger space in a twin room than a double bed room. The sheets are clean and the shared shower is good. The toilette is a bit small. The wifi is poor and you better take some pocket lamp with you since generally in SA sometime they have some electricity black out.

      Génial ”

      Cette nuit est une expérience, idéalement placé le train est face à la mer, les chambres sont dans les cabines donc la taille est bien sûr petite mais ça fait partie du truc ! Beaucoup de rangements on s’y retrouve très bien. Les douches sont chaudes et avec de la pression très grande salle de bain commune. Le personnel est gentil, le lieu très sécurisé, petit déjeuné un peu léger mais pour le prix on comprend. Bref très agréable nous reviendrons si nous passons dans le coin.
