Been To Any Good Tea Parties Lately?

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

tea setAlthough I am a dedicated coffee-drinker, I must admit I have been attending tea parties for a very long time. It all started when my sister received a blue and white china tea set for Christmas. We spent many hours sipping Kool-Aid from the delicate cups, always careful to crook our pinkie fingers and discuss the weather in a very genteel manner.

Unfortunately I don’t go to nearly as many tea parties as I used to but when I do, they are pretty spectacular.

 

For example, in 1990 I attended a tea party at Buckingham Palace. I had managed to get an invitation for myself and my husband to attend the Queen’s Garden Party and was quite thrilled to be picked out from the crowd of 6000 guests to be presented to the queen. After my private meeting with her majesty I sipped tea and nibbled cucumber sandwiches while strolling through the palace’s private gardens. (more…)

It’s a matter of opinion

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

A few years ago some friends were planning a trip to the South of France. Some other friends offered a suggestion of a restaurant that was in their words “the best meal we have ever had!” Unfortunately for my friends it was “the worst meal they ever had!” A lot had changed in the three years since their friends had eaten at this restaurant.

These days that is a lot less likely to happen. A person can check the reviews on any hotel, restaurant or attraction anywhere in the world. While this is an amazing tool, it is also important that we keep it in perspective. After all, an online review is simply a matter of opinion. The secret, when reading these reviews is to determine which opinions are valid and reflect your own expectations.

I like to read at least 10 reviews of any hotel that I am planning to visit. I know full well that there will be at least one review among those 10 that is quite negative. After all, of every 10 people I meet, there is always at least one who can find fault with just about anything. Remember when you see the TV ads for toothpaste; it’s always 9 out of 10 dentists that recommend a certain product! (more…)

Different with logoOct 3, 2012

For Immediate Release

TripAdvisor Reviewers Have Done it Again!

It was pretty special when Accent Inns announced that all five Accent Inn hotels around the province had received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2011. Can you believe they’ve done it again!

Actually their customers have done it with submitting all those wonderful reviews. The little home grown,  local BC hotel chain has received a 2012 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for every one of their 5 locations.

Why did they do so well for reviews? “It is really the awesome team behind the scenes that works so hard to give every  customer a comfortable, fun and relaxing stay. We’ve recently gone through a re-branding process for Accent Inns and when we were taking that hard look at just what makes us special, different, we came to the conclusion that it’s our people. The fun new style you can see online and in our properties is a testament to the wonderfully relaxed and fun way our team members go about their jobs and interact with our guests.” Mandy Farmer, President & CEO Accent Inns.
