The Speech House Hotel is located in the heart of the Forest of Dean and this I feel is the best redeeming feature with the place. I would add the hotel does have a very good parking ground and nicely clean refurbished toilets. We called into this hotel recently and tried their lunch in their Orangery which was pleasant enough... More

Visited for birthday weekend. Had sunday lunch which must be the best food I have had for a very long time. The building is very nicely decorated inside where we ate. The staff are really polite and attentive. A real credit. Highly recommended.

We booked in for a single nights stay during February half term without our children as a late birthday treat. On arrival, we had lunch in the Orangery which was very nice, before venturing out into the Forest for a couple of hours. We arrived back, quite cold and turned the heating up in our courtyard room. We were turning... More

This was a group on deal. Nice big room with breakfast provided. Room very dated but very clean and tidy. Breakfast first morning was not great, hair on plate. Food did not taste great. Following morning was breakfast buffet that was much better. Tea and coffee in room very stingy compared to other places. Great location.
