This hotel was booked for me as a party of 5 on a business trip. When I arrived I was told that my reservation had been 'cancelled by telephone', which it most certainly hadn't. A room was found for me overlooking the outhouses at the back of the hotel whereas the rest of my group had been upgraded to seaview...

My wife and I spent three weeks in Europe last July. Our first stop was St. Andrew's, and the Scores hotel. We stayed in four star hotels in London, Paris, Florence, Rome and Bari. Without exception, the "Scores" topped them all in size of room, comfort of beds, service, friendliness of staff and food. If you have never had a...

Earlier this month I turned up at The Scores without a reservation. The reception staff were very helpful and I was fortunate to have a room on the top floor over the West Sands with fantastic views. The room was well furnished and very comfortable. I had chosen to eat out that evening but enjoyed a hearty buffet breakfast the...

I have stayed many time at The Scores. The location is A1. The room (209) was great (huge bed and loads of room). The staff are a joy and the food is superb. The perfect spot from which to enjoy any St Andrews golf break. A great trip rounded off with a gross 75 on The Old Course :-) We...

We celebrated our 51st wedding anniversay here last year, and had a wondreful time. It seemed logical to stay here to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary with our son, his wife & their 19th month old daughter. The rooms were excellent, and suited our needs perfectly. In the dining room nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and our...

Just returned from a visit to see our son attending St. Andrews. Had a great room overlooking the sands, able to check in early, a plus. Typical Scottish breakfast included. Service was very attentive, staff very friendly. Even provided me with coffee to go on my departure at 5:30am! Would highly recommend. Reasonable price and great location. So accessible to...

The hotel has a great location overlooking the beach and sands. We had a junior suite which was a lovely and spacious room, but the downside of it was that it was on the lower ground floor so there was no view. If you want a sea view, better specify this when you book. As it is the winter, not...
