    breakfast very nice. Forest of Dean amazing, bluebells and scenery well worth the visit.

    the view from bedroom window looked straight out onto marque. Wedding recpetion being held and music (although understandable) was extremely loud made it very difficult to hear the TV - volume infact was set too max. However music did stop at mid-night. In fairness we were probably unlucky to stay at the same time as a wedding/reception but assume the marque is almost a permanant feature.

    The hotel's central location to all the attractions and places of interest in the Forest of Dean. Also, the acceptance of dogs by arrangement.

    Weather was unusually cold for mid-May and we had to ask every day for the heating in our room to be switched on. Restaurant service improved markedly on the final day when the restaurant manager returned from a period of absence.

    The helpful and pleasant hotel staff. The evening meals and good wine list.

    Would have liked better breakfast. Cold plates meant meal cooled very quickly. A greater choice of fruit would have been appreciated on the Sunday

    Loved its position in the middle of woodland. Excellent breakfast, service fast. Large room and bathroom, comfortable but decor a little tired.

    Service at dinner rather slow.

    I had a twin room which was located outside seperate to the hotel which was a good idea. I stayed here with a few mates as I was getting married in the morning and seemed the best in the area. There is no tv in the bar but it's a country hotel so understandable. Because we were massive football fans they opened the room upstairs so we could watch the footy which was a really nice jesture, the hotel staff were really friendly and will do anything for you. We lost in the end but had a top stay, even the checkout time was flexible. Breakfast is lovely also.

    No tv. Unless they open the private room up stairs.

    The service from the staff and the food served in the restuarant were both excellant. The forest location provided a peaceful and relaxing break.

    The main Hotel building was very elegant with a long history.The location was convenient for the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.The staff were generally helpful and friendly.

    The annexe room where we stayed was very small and badly laid out - very poor value.There was an electrical fault on the bedside lights.The tv was tiny and had a set top box balanced on top, which kept falling off and becoming disconnected. The restaurant played a bloody Frank Sinatra cd at every meal, breakfast and dinner.However, our worst problem was that an inexperienced Receptionist managed to lock my credit card by seemingly entering an access code at multiple pin prompts, which has caused severe inconvenience for the rest of our trip.I Would not use this Hotel again.

    We have just made a return visit to The Speech House after 40 years. The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived, very friendly and nothing too much trouble for them. The food was very good and the service in the both the dining room and bar was excellent. The Speech House is situated in the heart of the Forest of Dean, an area of outstanding natural beauty with much to do for all ages.
