This is a bog-standard hotel with delusions of grandeur. It's shabby, over-priced and, if you're not a golfer, doesn't look after you well. The internet connection is appalling - forget FaceTime or Skype - it'll be impossible. The one good thing is the view - but what does it really say about a hotel when the only good thing is... More

Our Family Had A Lovely Meal In The Champions Grill Restaurant. I Have A Number Of Allergies Which Was Accomodated For & The Chef Adapted My Choices With Ease. The Waitress Was Very Friendly & Nothing Seemed To Much Trouble. An Enjoyable Evening Out & Will Be Returning In The Not To Distant Future.

Located on The Scores, some 100 yards from the beach, the hotel is ideally situated for a stay in St. Andrews. The 1st tee and 18th green of the most famous golf course in the world, The Old Course, St. Andrews is barely 60 yards from the front door of the hotel and a stones throw from many others. A...

This hotel is very nice. They location is excellent, so close to the centre of St Andrews and the golf course. My room was very clean & warm and had a nice view over the gardens.

This hotel was booked for me as a party of 5 on a business trip. When I arrived I was told that my reservation had been 'cancelled by telephone', which it most certainly hadn't. A room was found for me overlooking the outhouses at the back of the hotel whereas the rest of my group had been upgraded to seaview... More

My wife and I spent three weeks in Europe last July. Our first stop was St. Andrew's, and the Scores hotel. We stayed in four star hotels in London, Paris, Florence, Rome and Bari. Without exception, the "Scores" topped them all in size of room, comfort of beds, service, friendliness of staff and food. If you have never had a... More

Earlier this month I turned up at The Scores without a reservation. The reception staff were very helpful and I was fortunate to have a room on the top floor over the West Sands with fantastic views. The room was well furnished and very comfortable. I had chosen to eat out that evening but enjoyed a hearty buffet breakfast the... More

I have stayed many time at The Scores. The location is A1. The room (209) was great (huge bed and loads of room). The staff are a joy and the food is superb. The perfect spot from which to enjoy any St Andrews golf break. A great trip rounded off with a gross 75 on The Old Course :-) We... More

We celebrated our 51st wedding anniversay here last year, and had a wondreful time. It seemed logical to stay here to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary with our son, his wife & their 19th month old daughter. The rooms were excellent, and suited our needs perfectly. In the dining room nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and our... More
