Best Western Scores Hotel
Ranked #11 of 17 Hotels in St Andrews
Reviewed 28 January 2017 via mobile

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

Stayed: January 2017, travelled as a couple

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.
Overall a very nice stay and I'd recommend it as it's good value for money.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled solo

This is a old style hotel with nicely furnished rooms and views across to the sea front and along the coast to the Old Course. I guess in summer it is very expensive but I got a good deal for the winter.

The restaurant food was reasonable and well cooked although nothing really fancy

Very enjoyable stay

Room Tip: The front of the hotel overlooking the sea is the best in my opinion

My expectations of this hotel were not met. We weren't informed that the restaurant and bar would be closed because of the season. The rooms (both mine and a friend's) were quite small which made it difficult to move around. There was no temperature control in my room, and it was so hot that the window was open when I arrived, and I had to keep it that way day and night despite the very cool weather. And despite only having a small number of guests, my room was not cleaned one day. On the plus side, the staff was pleasant, the view was great, and the location very close to both shopping and the university.

Room Tip: Best views are at the front of the hotel-my room looked out over the sea

The hotel has a great position and if you get a front facing room you will have a beautiful view of the water and the Old Course. The room was large and very clean and tidy. The staff were all very pleasant. The hotel is quite at night and no external noise. The food in the Grill was brilliant and Pam the supervisor was brilliant. The hotel was very comfortable and clean and keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room to get beautiful views.
