I was not impressed with the specific hotel receptionist but things improved in terms of the hotel. Even though the hotel is dated, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the breakfast was well prepared with options for gluten free needs. The location is prefect. The goodie bag for Best Western members should be eliminated or else upgraded as... More

I arrived with my husband to this hotel for a 2 night stay. Everything was outstanding from the moment we walked in the door to the minute we left. We were greeted by (Scott) the hotel receptionist at check-in. He did not fail at making us both feel welcoming with his smile and first class service. I have to take... More

Had an overnight here on Friday 22/07. When we arrived the receptionist was lovely and very helpful. Arranged an upgrade to a suite with a sea view. Only complaint which was out with hotels remit was the huge tree in front of our room window slightly got in the way of our view. Clean and comfortable hotel. Staff very very... More

We had a lunch reservation elsewhere in the town for my 50th birthday; since it was such a gorgeous day, we looked for somewhere with a view to have a drink outside. I ordered a glass of red & a glass of prosecco. It took 15 minutes to arrive, although there were 3 staff in the bar when I ordered... More

A big birthday for my wife. We had a lunch booking elsewhere but settled at an outside table for a pre lunch drink in the glorious sunshine. Fully fifteen minutes after we placed our order our wine arrived. My wife's proseccio , not even chilled, it was warm. We were disgusted, and the contents were emptied on the grass. "Best"... More

Grand visit if you arrive at 2:00pm or later. Very unsatisfactory if you arrive anytime before 2:00. Look like staff feel you only pay for 2:00pm to 11:00am and will not life a finger to see if the room is ready before time. Need a parrot at the front desk from 11:00 am to 1:55.. continually repeating 'Chickens at too,... More

I was a student in St.Andrews in the 80s and this was a holiday to introduce my family to it. The last time I was in the Scores was 1989.

This hotel is all about location as it is a stones throw from the first hole of the old course at St. Andrews. The rooms are up to the standard of a 3 star hotel as advertised and the breakfast is ok but not that great. Staff are friendly and helpful. The night porter can organise an early breakfast if...

Nice hotel in a great location about 200 yards from the 1st tee of the Old Course. Room 106 is large with a GREAT view of the R&A, 18th green, and first tee. Standard breakfast in a nice room. Short walk to town too.

You won't get many better located hotels in St Andrews, however the hotel is resting somewhat on its laurels. It's clean and tidy but 3 stars is a fair rating, unfortunately the breakfast wasn't great and the service a little odd at times.
