Best Western Scores Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for one night on a family vacation. The building itself is pretty old, but you should expect that in Scotland! Weird layout with sinks in bedrooms and such, but overall a nice charming area for the price we paid. You can only buy certain drinks in certain bars, which was a bit odd. And breakfast was Horrible. It also was the warmest (temperature) hotel I have ever stayed in...and you cant control the thermostats in the halls cranking out the heat. Everyone slept with windows open because they were so hot. But a great location and friendly staff. If you get family rooms with the bigger beds...they are two beds pushed together.

Had an enjoyable one night stay here and the location is hard to beat. It's within walking distance for those non golfers out there, of the the beach, shopping and ample places to dine. The staff were very friendly and breakfast was not bad.

Not only is this hotel beautifully situated but the building is also beautiful. The staff have always been so welcoming and attentive it really makes for a relaxing stay. We have the benefits of the beautiful sandy view of the West Sands and the famous golf course along with a bustling high street and fantastic history just waiting to be explored.

The room we had was rather small, but very charming, with much of the Victorian details, and a stunning view of West Sands beach. The Old Course, shops, and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. Service is excellent and we were welcomed by name when we returned, having stayed with them the previous year. Breakfast served with spectacular views - great way to start the day!

Stayed one Saturday at short notice and was lucky enough to get a room. Staff friendly and quick service upon arrival. Had a twin room on 3rd floor. Very clean and nice decor. Ensuite was also clean with nice powerful and warm shower. Only downside with it was the WiFi was non existent in the room.

Very helpful and accomodating when 3 days of golf cancelled due to weather.Will be back next year and many years after.Customer service at the front desk excellent.Great location for golf and sea views.

Overlooking the bay and famous golf course. Everything walkable from there in the town. Warm rooms . Good breakfast with fish options available on request. Off road parking at the back really useful. Well priced .

Stayed here for two nights on business. If you are a golf fan there can be few better places to stay. Across the road is The Museum of Golf and the first tee and 18th green of the Old Course. The room was huge and well appointed and the food was lovely. All in all a very good choice. Check out the view from the room, super.

You couldn't really ask for a better location in St Andrews. The hotel is next to the golf course and has sea views over the huge expansive beach. We had a room on the third floor and the lift was very welcome on the way up but we didn't mind on the way down. Room was fine, clean, big and very warm. The bed was too soft for our liking and the duvet too heavy but this is a preference rather than a fault. Breakfast was really good - I had the mackerel, poached egg on spinach and roast tomatoes - delicious .... Also the buffet breakfast ,the second day, which was good - though items could run out quite quickly. Location wise - free parking at hotel, easy walk to beach or to town centre. We will be back in the future.

We booked the hotel on the day of travel. Surprisingly the rate was cheapest on booking .com, rather than the best western website (even with reward club membership). The hotel is right by the central gold course and looks over the sea. There is lots of free parking opposite. This is a well mainTained welcoming hotel. The staff were all extremely helpful and professional. We booked room 110junior suite. It was spacious, looked over the sea, had light to read, lovely large comfortable bed. It was a beautiful room.. the breakfast was great,, great fruit bar and cereals. Also the breakfast room looked over the sea. My husband had cooked breakfast (the potato scone was delicious), I had smoked salmon and egg. All great. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
