We last stayed here 25 years ago on our Wedding night so it was the obvious place to celebrate our Silver wedding Anniversary, even having the same room. Immaculately clean, beautifully decorated , helpful staff and excellent food. Our only surprise was that whilst eating in the restaurant Friday night a family with 2 dogs came in & the dogs... More

The Speech House offered just what we were after - a mid-range independent hotel, that had character, but was clean, where the people were friendly and helpful and where we could be based for a carefree break. All of the staff were very helpful. Our special mentions go to Alan behind the desk and Chloe the waitress with whom we... More

We found this hotel through Secret Escapes. We stayed for one night for our wedding anniversary. We had a lovely time! It is in a beautiful area. The check in was smooth and the man on reception (his name was maybe Chas, but I may have got that wrong) was so friendly and nice, I saw him several times during... More

We stayed in a courtyard family room for two nights, I have to say it was one of the nicest family rooms we have stayed in - two single beds & one double all very comfortable and clean. The only downside being the walls are paper thin, so if you've got loud neighbours it can be tricky to sleep!! The... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times as we like the feel of the place. This time we were on the Explorer Package so had a Courtyard Room on a dbb basis. Staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. Food and drink was very good and the package was good value. The room was possibly a little dated but we... More

Admittedly I was one of the guests at the wedding which kept me awake until midnight however we did stipulate that we were attending with our three year old daughter so I felt it was very unfair of the staff to fail to inform us that Room 1 overlooked the marquee and would effectively mean we were trying to sleep...

We have just come back from a lovely week end in the Forest of Dean and The Speech House was just lovely. We paid for a superior room and it was well worth the money.
