10 Ways to Become a Green Traveller

Accent Inns focus on greenWe’re all becoming increasingly aware of our environmental responsibilities.

Easter – From a Chocoholic’s Perspective

Easter-Tin-PCI love Easter, not least because I’m chocoholic – I just can’t resist the stuff and at this time of the year I can indulge myself without feeling guilty, well not too much anyway! One of my favourite places to shop for Easter chocolate is Purdy’s – this year I plan to buy their vintage rabbit tins full of Purdys Chocolates milk and dark chocolates as gifts for my family. For me, I love plain chocolate and I’ll pick up one of their chocolate bunnies as my guilty pleasure. And yes, like 76% of all North Americans I’ll eat the ears first! Another favourite of mine is Rogers’ Chocolates milk chocolate jelly bean bark – now there’s an Easter treat I can’t wait to get my hands on. Read the rest of this entry »

47-15-008For Immediate release
March 25, 2015, Victoria, BC – Bin 4 Burger Lounge has set April 1, 2015 as the opening date for their new location at Accent Inns in Saanich, BC.

Since last year, Bin 4 Burger Lounge owners Dan and Sarah Blackmore and Chef Michael Ringland have worked closely with Accent Inns president and CEO Mandy Farmer, finding common ground in their approach to business and love of good food while developing the new space. Farmer and the Blackmores share a common mindset when it comes to customer experience. The design of the new Bin 4 Burger Lounge took into consideration the needs of visitors, travelling for business or leisure. Extra power outlets are available at the seats in the lounge, which seats up to 30 guests. The bar is larger than the other two Bin 4 locations, providing individual seating for 16 guests, and both the restaurant and outdoor patio can accommodate larger groups of up to 20 guests.

Spring South East BC Road Trip

kim julia RVI love road trips – there’s something about the freedom to go wherever the fancy takes you, stop whenever you see something of interest and the opportunity to eat out every night! Two of my favourite road trip destinations are the Oregon Coast by the Coho Ferry and Southern B.C. In spring the latter wins out for me as there is so much going on across the province. Whether you’re flying into Vancouver, plan a first night at the Accent Inn Vancouver Airport in Richmond or if you’re heading west from Alberta or beyond, you can pick a route that encircles some of the most diverse, and interesting, countryside B.C. has to offer.

St Patrick’s Day

St.-Patricks-DaySomeone once said, “There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were.” On St. Patrick’s Day we all feel a kindred spirit to our Irish friends; we wear green, drink green Guinness, Smithwicks, Kilkenny or Harp, and celebrate with stories and songs. The pubs are decked out with shamrocks, serve Irish fare and play Irish tunes. Read the rest of this entry »
