I returned to the Scores Hotel having previously stayed there in April 2007. The place is close to the Old Course and the five other courses and also close to the center of town to shop and dine. Staff was nice and helpful and would recommend highly.

Staying at the Scores was somewhat of a disappointment. It was of course very close to The Old Course but without a view of the golf course. We did have a good view of the North Sea. The room was cozy but the bathroom was small but that is usually to be expected. The staff were friendly (especially) the front... More

The hotel is clean and nice. The rooms are large enough. The breakfast is very good and the service very kind. The hotel is located very close to the St Andrews links golf courses and is very convenient for golfers.

Not my first time staying at this Hotel. This is my hotel of preference when staying in St Andrews. Spacious rooms and well serviced. It has a lift and there is wheelchair access. I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Food is good and reasonably priced. The bar tends to shut for cash transactions about 2130... More

Just had a lovely weekend here where our room at the front had the most marvellous view,was spacious and comfortable with lovely armchairs from which to sit and watch the Masters at Augusta on TV in comfort, and all the staff were more than kind, helpful and cheerful. BUT, until they get an electrician in to check the lift it... More

My wanted to play golf at the old course so we decided to book a location close to the course. Had no idea the view from our room would include the 18th green. Wonderful and clean accommodations. The staff was extremely helpful and the ease of location to golf, the castle and cathedral was a plus.

We had a fabulous weekend with fellow university graduates for our 40th reunion. The staff were great and helpful and the meals in the ballroom for large numbers were good. Our room was amazing overlooking the sea and very comfortable but had no bath. I particularly asked, as I can't access a shower, both on booking and on arrival -... More

Scores hotel was a superb venue for our forty year re-union. The accommodation was excellent; the food (hot buffet on the Friday evening and formal dinner on the Saturday evening) was very good. The staff members who were our contacts managed the week-end so well that it all went seamlessly. An excellent week-end made better by the Scores Hotel
