I booked this hotel from Secret Escapes as a surprise for my husbands' birthday and was not disappointed. The hotel is in the lovely Forest of Dean and the welcome is lovely.... the staff are so friendly and helpful. We were given room 6 which is up 2 flights of stairs - very steep! - so beware if you are not so good on your pins! However, the room was so lovely, it had a brilliant entrance area, lovely bedroom and a sitting room too! It was a mini suite really... so comfortable and quiet. The only thing was as it was high up in the building the windows were small and you didn't really have a view - however the room itself made up for that. We had a lovely meal in the orangery on the evening - being a Sunday night they put us in there rather than the dining room, it was great food all locally sourced produce - the wine list was fab and so reasonably priced! After a lovely nights sleep what could be better than a lovely breakfast cooked to perfection - and my favourite, smoked haddock and poached egg! Will definately be visiting again, superb location, lovely hotel - thanks to all at The Speech House!
