In the late 70s, the oilfield, forestry and agriculture industries were bustling, along with an expanding Fairview College. To address the need for quality accommodations and food services in the region, the Dunvegan Inn set its foundations in 1980.
Since its opening in 1982, the then forty-eight room hotel included enviable food service and catering capabilities, often approaching a thousand full plates served in a day. While home to the regular coffee and lunch crowd, the ever-popular Seafood Buffet attracts foodies from throughout the Peace Region.
Keeping up with the current business trends and modernization, many areas of the hotel have been continually upgraded, including the Aurora Sports Bar with VLT Gaming, literally raising the roof for the third-floor executive rooms, along with the construction of the adjoining luxury suites and contemporary updates inside and out. Now with 69 rooms and 14 luxury suites, the hotel can accommodate single travellers, large crews and numerous weekend sports teams. Further laying the framework for a full-service family-run hotel property, the hotel includes three family generations along with long-time career staff tending to every need of the customers. The dedication of our staff has been rewarded with the Alberta Hotel and Lodging Association Housekeeping Award for four consecutive years.
The recent addition of the Lost Bobbypin Studio Salon is growing the family connection to the community. Giving back to our local community through support for school programs, youth recreation and local charities, the Dunvegan has long been home to local service groups and organizations, and supportive of their initiatives, including accommodating Fairview’s Palliative Care Festival of Trees, the local MS group, Fairview Fire & Rescue.
Dunvegan Inn & Suites first received our Alberta Health & Safety Certificate of Recognition in 1997. We are proud to encourage health and safety both at home and at work, and participation in the program is mandatory for all staff.
