The Speech House is set in a beautiful location in the Forest of Dean. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. The best part is the impressive history of the building and antiques inside. Well worth a visit.

The hotel has vastly improved since my last stay. The staff are very professional and friendly and nothing is to much trouble. There is a range of rooms either in the main part of the hotel or in one of the cottages and are all of excellent standard. The room was very well laid out, clean and comfortable and a... More

We arrived at the hotel slightly earlier than expected & soaked through to the bone as we were attending a dog rally just down the road. The receptionist was extremely helpful & was able to check us in as our rooms were ready which came as a huge relief to my 8 year old son & I. We were in... More

Stayed here for a long weekend with other Morgan car owners. I had a single room (yes they do actually have them) which was fine but no view except over a flat roof. I had problems with the TV which they resolved immediately with a new replacement. Frindly helpful staff and excellent food.

A few friends and myself were interested in the historic nature of the Speech House. While viewing the Verderer's Court room which doubles as a hotel restaurant we were accosted by an official looking man. Expecting to be turfed out for being a nuisance and interfering with the running of the hotel, imagine our sutrprise at being offered a potted... More

Fifty years ago, I had an afternoon tea with my parents at a hotel in the Lake District. Everything there was home-made: fresh sandwiches made of cucumber, ham and smoked salmon were on offer, all cut into dainty triangles and presented on a three tiered plate stand. The small gooseberry tartlet served with cream was one of the best I... More

We're just back from 2 nights at Speech House Hotel. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the room was large and spacious (no.10). I understand what other people have said about the hotel being tired, but I only really noticed this in the communal areas (corridors/stairs/breakfast room) and even so, it makes a change from the generic decor of...

We stayed here for 3 nights... Staff were pleasant, room and bathroom clean and warm,BUT the hotel is in dire need of a through revamp and upgrading, it could be so much better. Breakfasts were good though. A new conservatory has been added which is nice, but it makes the contrast more noticeable. Our room was still in 1975..........and the... More
