Fantastic stay at this wonderfully run hotel. The food was exquisite and service impeccable. Our room was very clean and very large. The hotel is I deally located for the Beautiful Forest of Dean, we visited Symonds Yat which is very picturesque. We will be back to stay at this wonderful hotel and explore the beautiful surroundings further.

I came to Speech House on Sunday to spend two nights (groupon deal) and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is situated on a junction which at first was off putting but once on the hotel grounds (and in the room) you could hardly hear the traffic. It is a charming building which still has retained most of its original... More

The Speech House Hotel in The Forest of Dean is a very special place. I have been visiting for some thirty years to dine, attend meetings and more recently for short breaks, which speaks for itse my wife and Ilf. As befits a former royal hunting lodge and verderer's court there no pretentions to history or tradition. They are the... More

This is our fourth visit to the Speech House after walking in the Forest. This time we were a party of 14 with muddy boots and wet anoraks. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, moving tables and organising our lunch with smiles and efficiency. The sandwiches, soup and baked potaoes were delicious and very good value.

Living locally we were able to have several trips to the Speech House during the Christmas period including lunch on Christmas Day. The food was excellent as was the service. Delicious canapes, beautiful terrine, sorbet, turkey and trimmings, and the chocolate pudding. We returned to the hotel a day or two later and thoroughly enjoyed lunch once again. The chef... More

Without doubt, the staff here were superb. Post afternoon walk in the woods, a fine selection of fayre was available. We were very last minute with our booking but we weren't let down. This is an excellent place to visit in a beautiful location.
