What to Expect
What should you expect when walking into African Train Lodge?
A Train Station, complete with sounds, atmosphere and look of an original Railway Station expect a relaxed and warm environment where you are able to relax and let your senses do a little travelling of their own.
Hear the traditional sounds of the large Steam Engines as they depart and arrive next door. See the beauty of Cape Town's Table Mountain from the pool deck or the hustle and bustle of the railway junction at the main station. Feel the cool and refreshing waters of the pool or the warmth of the blankets in your compartment at night and smell the aromas of fresh coffee or cappuccino at the coffee shop in the mornings.
The Train Lodge is conveniently situated in the Cape Town City Centre,
close to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and the Green Point World Cup Stadium.
