My wife and I stayed here a few years back, and enjoyed it very much. I am in the process of planning another trip there, and this is on our list of one of the Hotels to stay at again. The location is less than a 100 yards from the Royal and Ancient Golf club, and the first tee of... More

Great hotel in a great location. Wonderful view from our big bedroom. Very clean and friendly staff. Main restaurant and bar not open when we stayed which was a shame. We ate in the Grill Room which looked over the sea. Dinner was really nice but they do need to encourage more guests to eat in. We were b&b but... More

We arrived and were met with smiles and warmth. However, the outlets in our room did not work. We were given an upgrade and transferred to another room. The view of the North Sea from our window was so beautiful. We were in walking distance to everything and never used our car until we left St. Andrews. And the food... More

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
