With the Stunning West Sands of St Andrews in our bedroom window and fabulous luxurious Hotel Room our stay was magical. The Hotel is superbly situated so close to the natural wonder of what St Andrews has to offer but also on the back doorstep is the bustling high street with it's colourful shops and welcoming community.

We recently spent three nights at the Scores hotel. When we arrived we were shown to a standard room on the second floor, however, after about 10 minutes in the room Reception telephoned to offer us a free upgrade as they had decided to give our room to a guest who only wished to stay one night. Our new accommodation...

I booked a Junior Suite with sea views and the room was huge. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a massive bed plus every amenity you would expect. In other more expensive hotels I've had to go hunting for an iron or a hairdryer but not here. The receptionist was particularly helpful and afforded me a complimentary late checkout...

A beautiful and traditional Scottish hotel with a relaxed charm and lovely views of the sea and golf course. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the centre of the town and other attractions. I've stayed here on numerous occasions and it's always my first choice when visiting St Andrews.

Lovely hotel, staff friendly and the breakfast was tasty, great to see a choice on the breakfast menu rather than Buffett. Great location looking out over the sea and onto the golf course, ideal for walks on the beach

The staff are generally friendly, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was good, with a splendid view of the Old Course! Check in was quite slow because you have to sign a lot of forms and register your credit card, and the bar was never open, which was a disappointment. Comments I hope the staff take on board....
