Best Western Scores Hotel.

The best location in St Andrews!

The Best Western Scores Hotel is the closest hotel to the 1st tee and 18th green of the famous Old Course of St Andrews. Whether you like the game or not, youll certainly enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views of the West Sands and St Andrews Bay!
