No aircon. The pool were dirty so there was no way to cool you down because the cabins are so hot.”
Just the location. Will never book there again unless the place gets a major revamp.

Very good”
I believe that Train Lodge is good value for the price. After my previous stay, I suggested that a few hooks for hanging clothes would be appreciated, also a small folding table top between the beds. Unfortunately this has not been provided! Another suggestion I would like to make is that the windows are able to open fully as it can get extremely hot in the rooms. Also that the area between the security fence and the carriages be cleared of weeds and litter! The staff are extremely obliging and helpful and I will not hesitate to stay there in future! Especially if the little improvements I have suggested are implemented.

Although our welcome was friendly and we were shown our Compartment before agreeing to stay .the”
The actual facility was nothing like the attractive online pictures. Our party of 3 was elderly and one of us was expected to get onto the top bunk without a ladder. We were thus put into 2 compartments. The unlit reception bar and snooker rooms were darkly unappealing with a staff comment saying lights would be switched on at 7:30pm. Generally the place needs repairing. Everything was clean. This cheap place will only appeal to a young people.

Not what I thought ”
It looks almost like a static version of the orient express in the pics but this it's not The rooms are basic to say the most grubby sheets no ensuite or towels windows that won't shut curtains that don't fit vents locked open so mosquitoes can come as they please, the nearest toilet is at end of carriage the nearest shower in a block at the end it's not what I expected and it weren't cheap

Affordable price”
Its cheap, but its a bit far from the city center, and from shops (SPAR, Pick n Pay, KFC, etc.). But it's close to the train/bus station. Their staff are friendly and helpful. Its a right place if you looking for the cheapest price, but may be not for backpackers, or traveller.

Dumfounded”
Price,location
I was dumbfounded. I paid for a room with breakfast. Waited an hour while staff watched tv. Was told to go to reception regarding the breakfast. I was told breakfast was not included. I showed them my voucher proving it was included. She called over her supervisor. The supervisor stated "breakfast is NEVER included." And that was that !

Ver very very basic 1*lodge”
The pool is only nice thing about hotel
The idea of staying in a train was very interesting to me and I expected small room/cabin and basic facilities.., but this was much less basic and not much left of the former glory of this hotel. Without spending thousand of rands this place can very easily be upgraded and be given sparkel back, but it does not look like any money has been spent to repair or upgrade anything for many many years. But I do understand that there is budget travellers that also just wants a place to sleep so there is a need for place like this. But then do not say you are 3* hotel.

Something different in a convenient location”
Convenient location, something different, very clean
The Train lodge is something out of the ordinary and it was a treat to fall asleep with the clack-clack sound of trains going past. The room and communal ablutions were all spotlessly clean and the lodge also sported a restaurant, pub and area to relax and watch TV. In short, it had everything I needed conveniently close to the airport and CBD

Weekend Away”
Location. Value for money. Situated in town.
You get what you pay for. Very basic facilities. The lodge gets booked out for parties, so be aware of this when booking. On my last night there was a birthday party. After a long day I came back to a loud party with music blaring. This music only stopped after 00:15 despite management promising it would stop at 23:30. Management could not have been bothered about it when I went to complain at 11:45 being that check out was at 10am the following morning. Based on the attitude of staff and the way that they dismiss customer complaints, I would not recommend this listing.
