Broadband access should be considered a must in all hotels, according to a Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP).

John Park, MSP for Mid-Scotland and Fife, said the provision of web services should be part of the criteria for awarding stars to sites.

According to the Press Association, he has written to Visit Scotland and the British Hospitality Association and urged them to support the free broadband campaign.

Mr Park, Scottish Labour's Economy and Skills Spokesman, commented: "I want to encourage every hotel in Scotland to offer free broadband as standard.

"This is about offering a better service to guests and making Scotland a more welcoming destination for tourists and business travellers."

Earlier this month, public Wi-Fi network Freerunner announced it is to provide 46 communities across the UK with free wireless broadband services.

Towns and villages with limited or no connectivity were chosen to take part in the project following a national competition.
