11.09am 6th May 2020 - Property

The Scores Hotel, which is located less than 150 yards from the first tee of the Old Course at St Andrews, is up for sale.

The freehold of the landmark 36-bedroom hotel, which has been under the same family ownership for the past 34 years, is for sale through property agents HVS Hodges Ward Elliott.

As well as 36 guest rooms, including 15 suites, facilities at the hotel, which is currently run by Best Western, include a 45-cover restaurant, two bars, three conference rooms, a large rear garden, parking and a terrace to the front. 

As well as its proximity to the Old Course and the Royal & Ancient Clubhouse, the hotel enjoys spectacular panoramic views of West Sands and the Tay Estuary.

HVS Hodges Ward Elliott’s Harry Douglass, said: “The new owner will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of acquiring and upgrading a globally significant property in their own style, with the possibility of virtually doubling the number of rooms. As well as capitalising on annual events including the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, this timely sale will allow the successful buyer to re-launch the property in time to host guests attending the 150th British Open Golf Championship in July 2022.”
