If it weren't for the location, I would have scored The Scores lower. Staff was pleasant but room, facilities , breakfast all were lee than I hoped for the money spent. Only the charm of the town and lovely stroll to e cathedral ruins made up for such a shabby hotel. This place is in need of a major rehab.... More

Greatest feature is the hotel's location just steps from the 1st tee and 18th green of the Old Course. Hotel staff were wonderful - very friendly and accommodating. Comfortable, friendly hotel with small guest rooms, some of which overlook the sea. Delicious breakfast in room overlooking the North Sea. We will definitely return to this hotel when in St. Andrews.

We had a junior suite that was to have a view of the course.. it had a view of the sidewalk and the tables from a nearby bar too. Luckily it was raining that night and so no party folks were out there. Room was quiet, so that's good. However, we had the windows shut b/c of safety issues, and... More

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.
