This was my 2nd stay at the Silver Cup. Not only is the location very well placed. The staff are very helpful and breakfast is very nice.

Conveniently located near the town centre this is a dependable and good value hotel with comfortable and well equipped rooms above the pub and free wifi available throughout. They have a good selection of beers and wines and the breakfast is served in ample portions. The sausages are especially tasty! The dinner menu isn't half bad either and the customer service is professional, attentive, reliable and friendly.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room which doesn't overlook the main road.

I’ve stayed at this pub with rooms many times on business, and although there have, from time to time, been a few relatively minor issues, overall it’s been very good indeed. And don’t be put off by the fact that this isn’t a hotel, as the service, quality of food, rooms, value for money, plus overall experience, are better than most of the local hotels anyway. But do book early, as it is popular on weekdays. Breakfasts are excellent and the real ale is well kept, too,

Room Tip: All the rooms are fine - I think I've slept in them all.

Stayed for 2 nights with a group of rugby chums - great spot just 10 mins walk from Station and 5 mins from Town Centre. Rooms were very clean and well maintained and the staff very friendly and accomodating. Lots of +ves and felt and seemed like a family run B&B/Pub. If you are a small group or just a single/couple then a good place to add to your list of places to stay

My Stay at The Silver Cup:
From the friendly and welcoming staff to the excellent breakfasts to the very comfortable beds, this is the place to stay if you are ever in the Luton area.
For the business traveller the beds are most comfortable, and the internet works fantastic and is very fast.
I will be back here for work several times in the next year and will always stay at "The Cup".
My highest recommendation and best regards to Liz, Michael, Charles, Jess, Lindsey and Rich...you're the best...Thanks.

What did I like?:
The owners and the staff they make you feel like you're at your local pub! The food...breakfast is top notch and for dinner I recommend the Bombardier & Beef! Oh The comfortable bed...I slept fantastic!

What I didn’t Like:
The only thing I didn't like is that I can't have all that The Silver Cup offers back home in the U.S.

Room was clean and tidy, a small single en suite. A lavish choice of breakfast where the staff were extremely attentive. At £75 per night for a small single room above a pub, plus a charge of £1.30 for the crisps and nuts which I ate from the hospitality tray in the room, I felt it was on the pricey side, but at London area prices I suppose it must cost a lot to run a place like this friendly family run establishment.
