Easter – From a Chocoholic’s Perspective

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

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. (more…)

Spring South East BC Road Trip

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

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!

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.-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. (more…)

6 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About The BC SPCA

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

teddyAt Accent Inns we love animals, we welcome them into our hotels and proudly support the BC SPCA – so much so that every time a pet stays at one of our hotels and we collect the pet fee and we give the organization $1 on their behalf. Approximately 4,000 animals stay at an Accent Inns hotel every year, so this means a welcome contribution wends its way to BC SPCA. We also regularly partner with, and promote, special campaigns in support of this amazing organization. (more…)
