Booking through Expedia was easy.
E-mails was answered quickly. However, it seems like there there was 3 or 4 different people answering my emails. One good thing about this is they were saying the same information. Suggestion- there should be a way for you to trace who has dealt with inquiries then hand over to the next person (if needed)
Stay was lovely- staff are very good, the quality of rooms are reasonable and was clean too.

I didn't know what to expect of pub accommodation as i usually use hotels. I was very impressed with the Silver cup. Very friendly, room was comfortable, good size with great en suite. It will be my accommodation of choice next time i am in harpenden.

We were in Harpenden for a wedding and I needed somewhere to disappear for a while before the celebration started. I chose The Silver Cup on the recommendation of a friend who used to live in the town.
I was made most welcome; the beer was good and they made me a very delicious BLT sandwich from scratch and all at a reasonable price.
My only criticism is that they suddenly put on music. Just too loud. And 'power ballads'. Apart from me there were there fairly elderly ladies in the other bar and neither party looked like Bonnie Tyler fans, I do so wish that pub staff would learn that just sometimes quiet is perfectly acceptable. And subjecting your customers to your choice of music is usually wrong.

This is a decent, friendly and comfortable pub B&B that's a bit rough around the edges in terms of service, premises and accommodation. There's absolutely nothing wrong in that of course. However for the room rate, you'd expect a bit more. Unfortunately this is fairly typical for the Harpenden / St Albans area, which has a dearth of quality, budget hotel accommodation.

The convenience of this pub is pretty good and although it's located on a busy road the noise was minimal.

The pub itself has character and the food and drink are above average in terms of volume, quality and price.

The room I stayed in however was uncomfortable, the carpet looked dirty (although I thinks it was the number of stains), the room was dark and the bed very uncomfortable. The bathroom was clean but in need of some TLC. The problem is that once you find a couple of issues, you start to nit-pick which I could easily do; the list though would be tremendous. It was clear that some renovation had been completed in the bathroom, but I would suggest they are asked to come back and complete the job or do it properly in the first place.

To conclude, it's a roof over you head worth no more than £40 p/night (I dread to think how much the company paid for this)
