This BW is changing hands and being refurbished, and it really needs it! Doors that don't close properly, windows where the sash cord have been used to secure the said windows. Generally not feeling like it was worth the rate...

Good place to stay when visiting the beautiful town of St Andrews. Fantastic views of the West Sands and located close to the town centre, castle, abbey and harbour. COVID related staffing issues mean the hotel is slightly short staffed so service is a bit slow but that's common across the industry.

We had our wedding meal and reception at The Scores Hotel and we cannot thank Molly and staff enough. Molly was fantastic helping us organise our day and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The rooms were great and hotel staff very attentive. Food was fabulous and the views from hotel are awesome. Once again we thank you all for making our day so special. Jason & Irene xx

A very tired and dark hotel in need of updating. The reception area was dark, our room was bleak with all pictures removed. Toilet and towels were dirty. Breakfast was OK, but lots of new staff learning on the job. However, pancakes were a hit. It seemed the younger hotel staff were keen to help, but the older ones were quite surly.

Thank you for taking the time to send your review. We are sorry the hotel did not meet your expectations . The hotel is closing in October to undergo a major refurbishment. We hope you will pay a return visit in 2023 when the hotel reopens.

I was concerned after reading recent reviews however need not have worried and listed the positives and negatives below: The hotel is in a fantastic location in the heart of st andrews. The view from the brealfast room was stunning and is attatched. The rooms were extremely clean and the covid measures were really good with the staff being extremely friendly and helpul. There was even a fan provided in the room which was a lifesaver given the heatwave. Although the rooms were very clean, they were dated and could use a refurbishment, the bathroom was excellent and looked as though it had been recently done. Also felt the bed was a little small but that simply may be because we have a kingsize at home and the room is advertised as a double. The price may have been a little high for the quality of the hotel room however i felt that it is justified by the location, service and fantastic breakfast. As mentiond in previous review all the pictures have been removed but again felt this made the hotel more covid secure and didnt impact my stay. All in all we had a brillant stay however feel the hotel will greatly benefit from the refurishment and would happily stay again in future.
