The Golden Cup
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Visit date - 17.03.12.

We stayed at the Golden Cup for one evening while attending a function at the Burton Marina.

It is always strange these days to be told we had to be back by a certain time to not be locked out, and to hand in our keys on the way out - Seemed rather like a boarding house of old. Bed and bathroom clean.

The stained Harrods bear on the bed, the lack of a shower in the bathroom, and the dog eared laminated signs absolutely everywhere didn't really reflect the way places should cater in the 21st century, even if you are aiming for the 'olde world' pub style.

There was a small flatscreen TV, crazily mounted just a few feet off the floor, so your feet would be in the way if you lay in bed.

The breakfast was plentiful, but without quality, rather fatty bacon, boring sausages. All eaten, but not that enjoyed. We were told on arrival we had to order ahead due to the 'Mothers Day' rush then next day, so when we walked into an empty dining room, maybe it wasn't needed. The wine glass of fruit juice was slightly surreal also.

The whole place was a little cluttered, a little faded and jaded - The overbuying of A4 clip frames evident in my photo attached to the review. And we never did get our free newspaper outside our door as advertised...

The church bells each hour just across the road also raise the living a lot, never mind the dead.
