I have stayed here twice now and I'll stay here again and again. The staff is incredibly friendly, food is good and the scenery is truly incredible. The hotel itself is beautiful and I love how they have maintained the architecture. Easy walking distance to all the great restaurants and shops. There are newer hotels in and outside of St....

The Scores Hotel is one of the most conveniently located hotels to the St. Andrew's Old Course and other attractions in St. Andrews. Our junior suite overlooked the Royal & Ancient Clubhouse and the 1st and 18th holes of the Old Course. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The on site restaurant was very good for the morning breakfast...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights for a university reunion. We were given a room overlooking the sea, which was much appreciated, as the St Andrew view is wonderful. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, the breakfast was good, but what really stood out was the service - all staff were exceptionallly pleasant and helpful, especially...

Me & my fiancé stayed here for an overnight on our trip to St. Andrews recently and I found this to be a really pleasant hotel.

Scores is the most conveniently located hotel to the Old Course in St. Andrews. Right outside the front door is the R&A and the first tee box and 18th hole of the Old Course. The service was excellent and the rooms were very spacious for two people. We had a total of 12 guys on our trip and everyone felt...

Location is wonderful for a group of golfers; within a short pitch shot of the Old Course as well as many good restaurants (Little Italy, Forgans) and pubs; staff was friendly and helpful; and the rooms were simple and clean. All (including price) considered, an excellent choice when staying in St. Andrews.

We just completed business in Aberdeen and were supposed to go to Edinburgh. But the morning of our leaving we found out that somehow our hotel reservation got cancelled there. So on the spur of the moment we decided to go see St Andrews. With some help from the staff at our check-out destination we were able to get into...

Our golf package included 6 nights at the Best Western Scores Hotel. We were told that we would be pleased. Well, we could not have been happier with the location, food and service.

We stayed three nights in a junior suite. The room was very good, well equipped and a decent size with a great view over the sea front and the famous golf course. Good bathroom and shower. The room was the most expensive of the five hotels visited in our Scotland tour but did not provide value for money. A number...
