A vacation is more than a change of scenery, it is a change of flavours; a chance to try something new or rediscover a favourite meal. Fabulous meals, fine wines and great dining atmosphere is often what we remember about a great vacation. At the Charming Inns of Alberta, dining is a point of pride with our member Inns and hotels. Our collection of properties have food and beverage teams, often including the Owners, who take special care in designing and creating exceptional dining experiences.

The Charming Inns of Alberta featured restaurants are a destination unto their own. Many offer regionally inspired dishes and source ingredients to bring guests the freshest and most flavourable culinary creations. The wine and cocktail lists are crafted according to the season and encourage guests to relax in cozy places, often fireside, for relaxation and to share the day's events.

All of the Charming Inns of Alberta offer food and beverage on different scales, from simple chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of bubbly, to four-course plated meals for a larger group, our collection of properties offer something to savour.
