This was my third stay at the Scores Hotel in St. Andrews. The Scores Hotel has a marvelous location just off the 18th green and 1st tee box of the Old Course. The hotel is clean and well appointed, and the service is generally good. The breakfast service was a bit disappointing as compared to previous visits, but certainly up...

Great location, overlooking West Sands and the golf courses. Rooms are nice but nothing special. Breakfast is below par for Scotland, but perfectly edible. Internet is free but slow. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms large, but fixtures could be upgraded. Overall the place looks a bit tired, but the location is nice -- you can walk to everything. Parking is on...

Best western is located on the first hole of the old course. Centrally located to all the sites, university and restaurants, all an easy walk and no need for a car. Typically don't like hotel restaurants, but the scores is an exception! We will be back!

This was our second visit to The Best Western and hopefully won't be our last. Were allocated a superb room overlooking The Scores,Beach & First tee. The bathroom probably needs updating but was spacious, bright with lovely toiletries. Service is super friendly.

We booked in for one nights stay last weekend. Unfortunately we lost the coin toss for the rooms and ended up in room 107 at the back of the hotel, supposedly an upgrade to a junior suite. The others were in room 214- much better standard of room. Heating wasn't on so room was freezing. Large room but very tired...

Stayed at this hotel for only one night but found it to be great value for money. Very friendly staff across the board notably the barman in the main bar and the breakfast staff. Cracking view from our room , the mark has to reflect situation, cleanliness and value for money , it does and I will be back asap.
