I had an overnight stay at the Scores hotel earlier this week The room was compact, but plenty big enough for what I needed. The usual TV and tea/coffee facilities available. I am a little dubious over the cleaning done in the room as there was a pair of boxers hanging on the back of the bathroom door... The customer...

Hotel is in great position on the scores overlooking the sea. Hotel is a bit dated but room and bathroom were spacious. No fridge or safe. Breakfast was ok but more staff needed to deal with guests at busy times

It is the comfortable knowledge that there will not be any unpleasant surprises in a Best Western hotel which allows the visitors to concentrate on enjoying a trip to St Andrews. Both the room and the bed could have been a bit larger, but this did not really diminish our enjoyment of staying at Scores Hotel.

A very reasonably priced hotel overlooking the old course. A big room, comfortable beds and a amazing view from the window. The room was well furnished. The hotel is centrally located, parking is easy to find out the front on the street. The staff were friendly and accommodating, The only down side the hotel is a bit out-dated.

This review is just for the restaurant and downstairs services, not the hotel rooms. I went to the Scores Hotel two weeks ago for a ball, where we were served a three course meal. I unfortunately got very ill from the food and had to miss out on the dancing at the ball due to extremely painful stomach pains. I...

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...

My partner and I have just returned from our stay in The Scores. We had an excellent weekend in this gorgeous part of Scotland. The hotel staff made my partners birthday very special with a card, and Scottish Tablet on arrival. We reserved the room with beach view at no extra cost. The room was clean and nicely laid out....
