“Great Location & Friendly Staff”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Great experience. I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The bed is super comfortable. The location is amazing. It is situated right by the North Sea and the Old Course, which results in a great view.

From check in to check out, this hotel was fabulous. Very conveniently located, and could not have been nicer. Staying at this hotel made our visit to St. Andrews our best experience in Scotland. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one.

Room Tip: Try to get sea view

A typical "period" hotel, fitting in with the history of St Andrews. Rooms have character. Staff friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Good breakfast. Parking always available at front of hotel. Would use again.

This place was great. An ideal location overlooking the water, city and St. Andrews golf course. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The restaurant and pub were an excellent spot to start our day and end our evening. In addition the staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The reservation process for this hotel was a bit convoluted. I thought I had booked a sea view room but it turns out I was supposed to indicate that preference in the comments section of the online booking form. Be sure to do that if you reserve online. The only sea view room left at check in was a junior suite on the 2nd floor so my friend and I did take it. We were on the second floor and had a partially obstructed view because of the first floor iron decorations sticking out in front of our windows. The room was okay but I was expecting much more from this hotel at this price. At breakfast we were seated in a corner by the buffet even though there were tables by the windows but they were supposedly occupied. Thank goodness we only stayed at this hotel for one night. There are plenty of other places to try down the street for the next visit to St Andrews.

The Scores Hotel is very well located near the R and A clubhouse and hence the 1st tee and 18th green of the Old Course. It has views along the West Sands and is close to many fine shops. I found parking in front of the hotel to be reasonably easy and the hotel offered its rear car park if I needed.

The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean. Mine did not have a sea view but I imagine those rooms that do are very nice indeed.

The front desk could not have been more helpful in assisting a very early departure as I needed to catch an early flight from Edinburgh.

I found the service in the bar areas a little less good as I am not sure I got what I ordered. The main restaurant was very good however.

Overall I was very impressed.

If I am able to return to St Andrews this will be my first choice.

Room Tip: If you are not on a budget ask for a sea view room.

We stayed at Scores on 20 September. It was our first visit but not our last. We had a lovely room with amazing views over the west sands and the 18th hole of the old course. Comfortable well appointed room. Great service from reception. Only complaint was breakfast on Saturday. Went down at 9.45 to find very little left and told that no more cooking would be done because breakfast finished at 10. The waitress took an order from us but we felt like an imposition. If breakfast is served until 10 guys you should make sure there's stuff to eat until 10! Otherwise good value for money.
