Scores hotel was a superb venue for our forty year re-union. The accommodation was excellent; the food (hot buffet on the Friday evening and formal dinner on the Saturday evening) was very good. The staff members who were our contacts managed the week-end so well that it all went seamlessly. An excellent week-end made better by the Scores Hotel

The location is excellent and the breakfast was good. However I think the hotel is overpriced. We had booked 2 junior suites which were spacious but tired. I also think they could have been better dusted and the windows in one of the rooms was covered with condensation. All in all I was disappointed in the 'tiredness' of the hotel....

Phenomenal location, very very nice staff, great overall experience!!! My only request would be that the hotel put in a faster and more reliable wifi system---which btw they offer FREE. Will stay there again for sure.

Hotel is old with small elevator to get your luggage to your room. Breakfast was served each morning with a choice of a buffet or you can order off the menu. We had one dinner here and the food was very well prepared. The room is small with 2 full size beds, plenty of room for 2 golfers who only...

Stayed here for a golf vacation and things were great. The hotel being only 50 yard from the old course was ideal. Also, you are within walking distance of many pubs and attractions. The room was clean and quiet and the service was great. Will stay at again.

This hotel was a real treat for a mum of 4 to relax and not have to cook whilst on holiday or clean a holiday cottage! We came to visit my son at Uni and had a great 4 nights. We were instantly upgraded to 2 high class suites, as our bathroom in the junior suite on 1st floor had...

Been here several times and over ten times for dining throughout different months. Each experience was a good one and the efficient wait staff got to know us and seat us at our 'regular' table. The winter months are best for exploring and getting to know the Scots and their traditions. Arrived once on Robert Burns Day in late January...

Had a lovely room with sea view and everything you need. Staff really friendly, breakfast wonderful, location perfect for our brief stay. Parking a bit difficult during the day but space directly outside hotel from late afternoon, expect it may be trickier during busier times. Great place to stay would go again and would recommend.

We stayed at The Scores while visiting our daughter who is studying at the university. It is a good "old fashioned" hotel in the nicest sense of the term. Our room was comfortable, clean and well equipped and it was a pleasant change to find mugs on the tea tray rather than tiny cups. The staff were friendly and relaxed...
