I have just returned from Scotland where I had the pleasure of staying at the Scores Hotel. I don't know quite where to begin, so I will just start from the beginning.
First, you could not pick a better location not only for convenience but also for the tremendous views of the Scores Beach. If you are a golfer you will find it literally have a downhill put to the 1st tee of The Old Course and of course the 18th green. I stayed in a wonderful room on the second floor with a panoramic view that includes the beach and the famous R&A clubhouse. If you are not a golfer, the location is also ideally located for an easy walk to all of the fine shops and restaurants in St. Andrews.
The hotel is classic upscale European which has obviously been recently restored and upgraded. Old style wall paneling and moldings have been retained. New carpeting and fresh paint are make everything seem fresh and clean. The en suite bathrooms have been completely upgraded with modern fixtures and wonderful shower / bath combinations.
Meals were always outstanding with a very reasonably priced yet diverse menu. In particular, the complimentary full Scottish breakfast each morning made me jump out of bed!
All of the staff were not only extremely friendly but also eager to help with any question I had during my stay. My comfort seemed to be their primary concern.
