I stayed here for one night for work purposes. I got upgraded to a suite which was lovely but unfortunately didn't get much use of it but it was a great touch! The bed was huge and very comfy. I had a sea view which was great. It is at a great location and handy for the town centre/golf and University

Lovely big room, nice big comfortable bed, large tv. Fresh bright on suite. However restaurant disappointing Arbroath smokies with mac cheese, runny lacked fish, taste & flavour. Waitress lacked experience and knlowedge not offered bread or side dishes. Another table walked out due to no steak, plus they waited 1hr for bread, plus they got all their drinks mixed up. Breakfast was nice, box standard but nice. Great view!!

In St Andrews for a golfing break, this hotel is so close to the action - about 200 yds from the first tee box for the Old Course! Center of town a few mins easy walk away. Staff v friendly, rooms fine and free parking outside. Nothing not to like.

The hotel is nicely place with lovely views. Ask for a room with a view of the sea. The Junior Suite was spacious and comfortable. Little things were amiss like: dirty glasses in bathroom, dirty shower curtain, missing towel racks, etc. However the overall comfort of the room and convenience to golf and town were very special.

Reception not very welcoming. We had requested early check-in at 1pm to change for 2 pm wedding. Receptionist had no knowledge of this, although eventually managed to accommodate us. Attempted a snack lunch of sandwich and coffee. This took 35 minutes to appear leaving us unable to finish it. Cost was excessive. Room was adequate although on the cold side. This hotel, although ideally situated for golfers is certainly not value for money for other travellers and I would not repeat the experience... Read more

My Dad Paid over a grand for a coach tour and to stay at this hotel for xmas 2015 it was an absolute disgrace from start to finish, no heating, breakfast buffet cleaned out with no replacement, poor service from foreign staff, manager on holiday and no sympathy or refund from best western. Keep Clear of it.

Stayed here last week on my birthday as we were attending a wedding reception in another hotel outside St Andrews. On arrival was not impressed with greeting not very friendly. Room was very dated however clean - did ask for a room with a view no joy as we were at back of hotel. Breakfast in morning was a total shambles, we were told to sit anywhere and left. Waited for about ten mins until Pam attended to us her service was excellent. Buffet food was very disappointing - hardly any choice avai... Read more

This hotel has a great location. Walking distance to all the restaurants, pubs and attractions in St. Andrews. Our room looked out onto St. Andrews Bay and partially onto hole 1 at the Old Course. You can walk to the Old, New, Jubilee & Eden Courses. Our room was a good size and the bathroom was a decent size as well (Jr. Suite). Those would be the only positives about this hotel. The service overall was very poor. In order to get our tee time at the Old Course we had to stay at the Scores Hotel... Read more

The Scores Best Western offers any visitor to St. Andrews a great experience in what can only be described as the perfect location. Sitting outside the hotel on a summers evening having a drink, you are able to watch the golfers approching the 18th Green of the Old Course. Very smart and friendly staff and a goog hearty breakfast to set you up ufor the day. Highly recommended.

The hotel rooms are dated although located near the old course. Rooms need more temperature control in cold months. Wifi is okay, breakfast is okay. A lot of stairs to your rooms so dont carry heavy luggage. Parking is free around the hotel. Plenty of eateries, within walking distance to the whole city.

As a 67 years old lady golfer from Cape Town, South Africa, I recently drove through Scotland, by myself and stayed for 2 nights at the Best Western Scores Hotel in St Andrews. It was a truly unbelievable experience made even more special, by the care and service I received from the duty manager, Scott, who was on duty when I arrived, right through to the restaurant and pub and also the administration staff, when I checked out. The food was equally good, the room I stayed in was fabulous, comfo... Read more

Outstanding location within walking distance to R & A, Old Course, etc. Room views spectacular overlooking the water. Staff very friendly and fairly helpful. That said, there is no portage service once we were dropped off at the hotel nor could Staff provide service for purchasing momento from their small gift area. As a first time visitor, this is unacceptable.

If you are looking for a hotel right across from the Old Course, this one is it. Great location, easy access to course and shopping. Beautiful, old decor and great staff. My only objection was our bed was so firm, it was uncomfortable. But, I was VERY pleasantly surprised by the quality of the building structure and the helpful staff.

We had a great room, junior suite overlooking the bay. Super location for golf course and walk into town. Cooked breakfast and service at breakfast a little "iffy" but all in all great place for a couple of nights stay to visit the home of golf.

We selected this hotel because it was across the street from the Old Course on St. Andrew's Link. It is also next to the bay with a large expanse of grassy knoll to walk on. They advertise free parking, but if you arrive at the wrong time of the day, there is no room to park. We had to park way down the street, and then move our car later to be close to the hotel. We had booked a suite, which was large, roomy, and comfortable. The bed was one of the bed we slept on during our trip. The onl... Read more

The staff at Scores was top notch, top to bottom, and they were very accommodating to our group of 14 golfers. Offering breakfast and golf club storage was great touches, the rooms were welcoming for 2 guests and the bathrooms very spacious! The location of the hotel is award winning to me! I will stay at Scores on my next visit!

Practically ON the 18th hole of the Old Course, the location could not have been better. Parking is challenging, however, and the staff person was neither sympathetic nor helpful about that when we checked in. The room assigned to us was very hot, and when we couldn't open the window the extremely nice evening manager had us moved quickly to a lovely room overlooking the water, which rescued our opinion! The decor is probably ready for an upgrade, but the location more than makes up for it!

Brought the family to St. Andrews for a birthday gift of golf for my husband. Hotel staff was very accommodating to every request. We reserved a family room (well priced) which had two separate bedrooms and baths, perfect for a family of four. Amazing homemade shortbread cookies in the lobby, great food in the restaurant, and the obvious-- a perfect location for golfers. While my husband golfed, the kids and I had plenty to do, being able to walk to St. Andrews castle (very kid friendly plac... Read more

You won't get many better located hotels in St Andrews, however the hotel is resting somewhat on its laurels. It's clean and tidy but 3 stars is a fair rating, unfortunately the breakfast wasn't great and the service a little odd at times.

Nice hotel in a great location about 200 yards from the 1st tee of the Old Course. Room 106 is large with a GREAT view of the R&A, 18th green, and first tee. Standard breakfast in a nice room. Short walk to town too.

This hotel is all about location as it is a stones throw from the first hole of the old course at St. Andrews. The rooms are up to the standard of a 3 star hotel as advertised and the breakfast is ok but not that great. Staff are friendly and helpful. The night porter can organise an early breakfast if you have a tee time before 7am. I have stayed there a couple of times as it is not that expensive but is in such a great location. If location is your thing it does not get any better.

I was a student in St.Andrews in the 80s and this was a holiday to introduce my family to it. The last time I was in the Scores was 1989. We had great stay at The Scores St.Andrews in a family room, which was actually two rooms with a little entrance hall between them and one bathroom and one separate toilet (no sink in there tho?). The rooms were comfortable and there was no noise at all- nice view over the back garden. Breakfast was good, with a choice from the menu or small buffet (loved the ... Read more

Grand visit if you arrive at 2:00pm or later. Very unsatisfactory if you arrive anytime before 2:00. Look like staff feel you only pay for 2:00pm to 11:00am and will not life a finger to see if the room is ready before time. Need a parrot at the front desk from 11:00 am to 1:55.. continually repeating 'Chickens at too, chickens at too!

A big birthday for my wife. We had a lunch booking elsewhere but settled at an outside table for a pre lunch drink in the glorious sunshine. Fully fifteen minutes after we placed our order our wine arrived. My wife's proseccio , not even chilled, it was warm. We were disgusted, and the contents were emptied on the grass. "Best" Western. I don't think so.

We had a lunch reservation elsewhere in the town for my 50th birthday; since it was such a gorgeous day, we looked for somewhere with a view to have a drink outside. I ordered a glass of red & a glass of prosecco. It took 15 minutes to arrive, although there were 3 staff in the bar when I ordered and not a huge number of customers - all of whom were only having drinks. When it did arrive, my prosecco was warm & flat. I was so annoyed & threw it onto the grass. My husband took the empty glass to ... Read more

Had an overnight here on Friday 22/07. When we arrived the receptionist was lovely and very helpful. Arranged an upgrade to a suite with a sea view. Only complaint which was out with hotels remit was the huge tree in front of our room window slightly got in the way of our view. Clean and comfortable hotel. Staff very very nice and obliging. Good choice of breakfast. Would stay here again and would recommend. Maybe a few wee upgrades required but all in all a nice hotel for being 3 star. In a pri... Read more

I arrived with my husband to this hotel for a 2 night stay. Everything was outstanding from the moment we walked in the door to the minute we left. We were greeted by (Scott) the hotel receptionist at check-in. He did not fail at making us both feel welcoming with his smile and first class service. I have to take this opertunity again to thank him for going that extra mile for us i.e booking our restaurant, helping with directions, but most of all making us feel relaxed and happy to be visiting ...

I was not impressed with the specific hotel receptionist but things improved in terms of the hotel. Even though the hotel is dated, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the breakfast was well prepared with options for gluten free needs. The location is prefect. The goodie bag for Best Western members should be eliminated or else upgraded as it took away from the appeal of the stay. IF you arrive after golf , you will have an easier time to park, otherwise they have a parking lot behind... Read more
