IT is advertised as the perfect place to escape, with no TV or radio signal, limited mobile phone access and no wifi.

The Moor of Rannoch Hotel at Rannoch Station has been recognised with a prestigious award, being named Newcomer of the Year in the 2015 Good Hotel Guide. It listed the Perthshire hotel as "blissfully isolated with board games and books replacing radio, TV and wi-fi".

The Green Park in Pitlochry, Perthshire, was awarded Scottish Hotel of the Year with the family-run property on the banks of the River Tummel described as "faultless" in the latest edition of the guide which is published today.

They were two of only 10 establishments across Great Britain and Ireland to receive a Cesar Award, named after hotelier Cesar Ritz and dubbed the "Oscars for the hotel industry".

The publication's co-editors Adam Raphael and Desmond Balmer said: "Breakfast is a good benchmark; it's the guest's last meal before check out, so good-quality coffee, freshly-squeezed orange juice and free-range eggs should be a given. The guest may not always be right, but they should always come first."

Others to be included in the 10-strong list of Cesar Awards is Cumbria's Overwater Hall named as top dog-friendly hotel and Fowey Hall in Cornwall, a location which is said to have provided the inspiration for Toad's stately home in The Wind In The Willows, which scooped best family hotel.
