“young family”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

we stayed for 2 nights in april and really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. we have 2 kids under six so managed to secure the flat like apartment with 2 bedrooms, for a really good price (phoned direct). location is great also, with about a 5 min walk to the town centre and 1 min walk to the beach. breakfast as you'd expect with great views.

The hotel is beautifully sited, overlooking the magnificent beach at St. Andrews and within easy walking distance of the university. Our room was large, comfortable and reasonably well appointed. It's not the Ritz, but it's comfortable. Front desk staff were welcoming and pleasant, and the dining room staff were happy to meet our requests for food and drink. As a university parent, I am happy to make the Scores my St. Andrews home.

Stayed mid April as part of the winter golf package on a D, B & B basis. Very friendly and helpful staff and they couldn't do enough for you. Dinners and breakfasts were very good. Twin room overlooking the beach was fine.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms at the front have great views.

4 of us on a golf trip to St Andrews stayed 4 nights in the Scores Hotel. A small friendly and very welcoming hotel with a fantastic location. Excellent dinner menu and food was always pipping hot. Staff were extremely helpful and friendlys and always recognised their guests and had time for a few words with their guests. A few steps from 18th green on the old course at St Andrews. Highly recommend this hotel to visitors to St Andrews, we were fortunate and got seaview rooms to enhance our stay, the rooms were spotlessly clean and roomy. Look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: Request seaview rooms

This is a lovely hotel. The room was large and comfortable and the staff very friendly. The view of the north sea is stunning. Loved all the golf memorabilia and the old wood interior. The bathroom was well maintained but old fixtures and no shower but a bathtub.

Travelled up for the university open day with my daughter. This is a perfect location with free parking right outside. Friendly service, excellent food both breakfast and evening meal with a 'to die for' view down the West Sands.p from the dining room. Managed a run in the morning along the beach and across the golf course. Happy to recommend.

This is a bog-standard hotel with delusions of grandeur. It's shabby, over-priced and, if you're not a golfer, doesn't look after you well. The internet connection is appalling - forget FaceTime or Skype - it'll be impossible. The one good thing is the view - but what does it really say about a hotel when the only good thing is when you face *away* from it?!
