Had a lovely stay in the Scores Hotel St Andrews. It is in a great position overlooking the bay. The room was lovely and clean, although it was too warm at night and the window would not stay open. The staff were all lovely and helpful. Breakfast was very busy and we were looked after by two lovely ladies who...

We had a junior suite which overlooked the West Sands in St Andrews. The room was spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The staff in the hotel were all friendly and efficient and helped make our stay very pleasant.

A splendid hotel with helpful and courteous staff in an ideal location for exploring St Andrews and the surrounding area. The rooms we booked had a wonderful outlook across the beach and were warm , extremely clean and comfortable without being too over-heated or fussy. The hotel is old though has been modernised tastefully, and the quirkiness that has been...

A small hotel right on the front, overlooking the sandy bay and foreshore. Also handy for the town centre and very close to the golf courses. Somewhat old fashioned, but clean, warm, and beds very comfortable. Dining room also overlooks the bay and breakfast offered usual fare plus porridge, black pudding and haggis! Only problem is parking which is hard...

I stayed at the Scores Hotel while visiting St. Andrews for a birthday celebration. The first surprise about the Scores is its excellent location, just around the corner from the Old Course, looking right on to the sea and just minutes walk from the town centre. Check in was fast and friendly and my room on the first floor was...

Booked several months before arriving and asked for a sea view room. When we arrived we were told that rooms were only allocated the night before arrival so no sea view was available. What we got was an attic room with a view of the car park, cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and a brown stain on the duvet cover....
