Friendly and well-run guesthouse on an almost uninhabited island that will impress and delight wildlife lovers.

A low-rise building of wood and corrugated iron, embattled against the elements, Sealion Lodge is a friendly and well-run guesthouse on an almost uninhabited island that will impress and delight wildlife lovers. Colonies of rockhopper, king, gentoo and Magellanic penguins cohabit with enormous elephant seals, killer whales patrol the seas and a vast range of sea birds can be sighted all around the lodge.

It's a small island that can be explored on foot in its entirety; on arrival guests are taken on an introductory tour to point out the principal areas of interest. Accommodation is simple but sufficient and there is a well-stocked honesty bar, library and lounge with views of a nearby penguin rookery.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

"Were given a very large room here with an open fire. Very nice place, and the historic nature of the place didn't seem to mean not so good facilities. Cold at night but they did light the fire (and offered an electric heater) and staff were very welcoming."
