AA Hotel Group of the Year 2008/09, QHotels, has today unveiled ‘Quackers about Q’; the collection’s new children’s brand. Underlining the group’s newly enhanced children’s policy, ‘Quackers about Q’ will be fronted by a family of cartoon ducks.

The launch of ‘Quackers about Q’ will see the introduction of new, family focused, initiatives including children’s guest registration cards, branded story books, separate restaurant menus for the under 15’s, event guides, colouring competitions and gift packs. These new products and services will be rolled out across the group’s collection of 4 star hotels this week. A children’s morning newspaper is also in the pipeline.

With the family market in mind, QHotels has also committed to providing all under 5’s with free accommodation and dining when they travel with two adults. The hotel group has also partnered with Treasure Houses of England, ensuring its family guests discounted access to some of England’s most magnificent palaces, houses and castles.

“We are really excited about the Quackers launch, it’s the perfect platform for us to introduce our new and improved children’s policy and also demonstrate our commitment to our family guests and their QHotels experience”, commented Michael Purtill, QHotels Managing Director.
