Its literally a 9 iron from the Old Course first tee and a 2 minute walk into Town, and many of its rooms are sea facing. Nothing not to like about the rooms. Breakfast not great and a hilarious German accent female's voice in the elevator! Free parking at rear of property.

The only redeeming feature of this hotel is the location. It is on a stunning site adjacent to the Old Course and minutes from all the amenities of the town. Sadly the traditional features are just a very run down hotel that needs renovated!!

The Scores is literally across the street from the first tee of the Old Course at St Andrews. The rooms are nice and a little quaint. The location is such that there is no noise when sleeping. Also the location is great for exploring the rest of St Andrews.
