St. Andrews


Situated on the eastern Scottish coast in the town of St. Andrews, just a wedge from the 1st tee at the Old Course, Scores Hotel is an hour from Edinburgh Airport and 2 hours from Glasgow Airport.


St. Andrews Old Course (1 minute), Dukes Course (10 minutes), Ladybank (15 minutes), Scotscraig (20 minutes), Crail (20 minutes), Kingsbarns (25 minutes), Carnoustie (55 minutes), Gleneagles (70 minutes), Muirfield (1 hour, 45 minutes), Gullane (1 hour, 45 minutes), North Berwick (1 hour, 50 minutes), Dunbar (1 hour, 50 minutes)


Situated only yards from the first tee of the Old Course at St. Andrews, the Scores Hotel commands magnificent views of St. Andrews Bay and the historic clubhouse of the Royal and Ancient. Adjacent is the British Golf Museum while the town of St. Andrews, which represents a veritable treasure trove of one thousand years of Scottish heritage, is just a short walk away.

The hotel occupies two former fashionable townhouses, which date back to 1880, giving guests a palpable sense of history and tradition. Each of the Scores Hotel’s 30 bedrooms is en-suite and offers a full range of modern facilities. Many guestrooms have panoramic sea views, while others command views over the hotel gardens. A choice of bars includes the aptly named Scorecard Bar, which is adorned with golfing memorabilia including a collection of cards from championships played over the Old Course by some of the game’s legends.

Though a selection of fresh local seafood, for which the East Neuk of Fife is renowned, features strongly in the award winning Alexander’s Restaurant, the menus offer a wide range of traditional Scottish and international cuisine. The coffee shop at Scores Hotel, which provides an excellent course-side vantage point, serves breakfast and snacks throughout the day.
