Dunvegan Lodge has recently experienced a spate of “number one” experiences which have been amazing to witness.

Besides being rated as the number one guest house in Clovelly on both Booking.com and Trip Advisor, we have had exceptionally talented guests who are at the top of their chosen sports.

Firstly we hosted the ex world number one squash player Nick Matthew, aka the Wolf, during  his visit to Fish Hoek squash courts in order to play a series of  exhibition matches against local and national players. This was part of his #wolfontour and #masjiensquash South African tour during which he was accompanied by, wait for it, the current South African number one player J P Brits as well as the the 6th rated SA player Christo Potgieter. They put on a magnificent display of exhibition squash culminating in a long and hard fought battle between Nick and our local world rated player Rodney Durbach. Nick Matthew has posted on Instagram as well as on Facebook in which he raved about the beauty and hospitality of our beloved country.

Then, at the same time, Kajal Mistry (the 2018 South African no 1) travelled down to Cape Town to participate in the Western Province amateur open ladies tournament which was hosted by Clovelly golf course. She unfortunately lost the finals match on the 18th green to Annelise Swanepoel. She was also a Dunvegan Lodge guest so we were indeed graced with incredible talent during this period.

The weather in Clovelly was stunning during the event and the competitors and family were amazed by the hospitality shown by the Clovelly golf course members and staff during the event.

The beautiful city of Cape Town and its surrounding areas are a fine holiday destination, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy a family break or a romantic excursion for two. With easy access to the nearby National Parks and other superb attractions this is a part of South Africa that is not to be missed, and at Dunvegan Lodge we do all we can to ensure you have the perfect accommodation for your stay. Occupying a prime location on the hillside in beautiful Clovelly, Dunvegan Lodge is a wonderful place from which to explore this exciting destination.

Offering beautifully furnished rooms – each with a private outdoor area for enjoying the glorious weather – and with fine views across the spectacular Fish Hoek valley, Dunvegan Lodge is perfectly placed to allow easy access to all the major attractions. Cape Town itself is just a short distance away and the wonderful waterfront area is not to be missed. With fine restaurants, lively bars and a friendly welcome, Cape Town is a great place to visit, and the colonial influence still shines through in the delightful architecture that prevails throughout.
