The hotel has a small car park which is great, but no rear access entry at the time of my visit so you have to take your luggage etc around to the front. The hotel is a little dated especially the corridors bar, and restaurant. The breakfast was really good and all of the staff are excellent. The twin room... More

St. Andrews and the Links was one stop on our family holiday. The Scores Hotel is a class act, within yards of the 1st tee on the Old Course. Location is surrounded by history, and the hotel has a very masculine clubby feel to it (no surprise there). The attached pub was packed with cyclists, but another pub around the... More

St. Andrew's is the birthplace of golf; however, only 10% of the visitors are golfers. St. Andrew's only offers 1 large modern hotel, The Old Course, was is very expensive and usually booked. We chose the Best Western Scores Hotel from their website. The hotel consists of 2-3 older brownstone residences converted to a hotel. Interestingly, the room which we... More

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
