The junior suite was very roomy, including a large bathroom. The staff at the front desk was fantastic, with several excellent recommendations, assistance with directions, calling cabs, and overall friendliness! It is an older building, but that adds to its charm. The included breakfasts were fair and dinners were not great, but we were told they were in the middle... More

I'll start with the good; the room was the best we had during our weeklong stay in Scotland. The hotel itself is very well situated and the staff very friendly and helpful. I feel bad for the servers in the restaurant as the kitchen moves at glacial speed as soon as there are 3 or more orders that come in... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the BW Scores. The staff were friendly, the hotel was clean, the bed was comfortable, the room was large (junior suite),. and it's located steps from the Old Course. The hotel looks over the ocean, although not all rooms do. The breakfast buffet was very good served in a lovely room overlooking... More

This hotel is actually two converted Victorian homes (one was an old boys home or school, as I recall). You can literally throw a golf ball and hit the Old Course from the from steps. The restaurant is very good...Chef was hilarious and skilled. We had the Carvery on the Sunday we arrived, and breakfast the following morning; both were... More

The location is perfect! It really could not be in a more perfect place. We stayed here for one night while my husband played golf. The staff were very polite and accommodating upon check in. Our room was very large and clean. My only complaint was the bed. The mattress was a little lumpy and could probably use an upgrade.... More

You can see The Old Course from the front of the hotel. The room we stayed in was a lovely junior suite. Very comfortable, spacious and quiet. Large screen TV and good wifi. Dinner in the hotel was very good. The ocean view from the dining room is unobstructed. Staff was very helpful. Shout out to Benji at the front... More

The location can not be beat. Close to the water and golf course. Unfortunately our room was really small with a view to the back roof. Really disappointed after reading reviews of rooms. Not 103 !!! Breakfast was quite nice and staff helpful. I should have been more assertive about room choice. The couple we traveled with had a much... More

When we finally arrived after dealing with a flight cancellation and missing bags, it was really nice to be greeted by a friendly receptionist who got us settled in and provided directions on where to purchase some essentials. The location is iconically situated in front of the 1st and 18th hole of the Old Course and less than a 10... More
