The Speech House is Great for Groups

The hotel caters perfectly for small to medium sized groups wishing to be based in the heart of the Royal Forest of Dean.

With 35 comfortable en-suite bedrooms, half of which are in the historic main house, the hotel provides a wonderful mix of traditional period character combined with modern day facilities.

There are several dining options – from the informal Orangery to enjoy a tasty lunch or traditional Afternoon Tea, to the AA Rosette à la carte fine-dining restaurant set in the historic Verderers’ Court Room. The hotel has a cosy bar area and pretty garden for drinks and summer alfresco lunches.

The hotel is child and dog friendly. We have a large car park with two EV charging points for guests.

Due to our central location and facilities, we appeal to vintage car clubs, motorcycle touring, walkers, nature and history groups, and parties planning a reunion.

We have several function rooms which are suitable for private dining or larger groups, such as our Edwin Tauber Suite, a purpose-built modern function suite with separate bar and kitchen which can accommodate up to 200 people.

If you are planning a group trip or event, please contact us for more details.

Dear Speech House Friends.

It is with great sadness that we have decided to close the hotel until further notice.

We cannot estimate when we are likely to reopen but will do so as soon as the Government indicates that it will be safe to do so.

If you have a reservation for accommodation or a function before May 31st we hope that we will be move your booking to a later date in the year.  We say May 31st but obviously that may be too optimistic.

You will be able to contact us by e mail ( ) if you do not receive an answer on the phone 01594 822607. We are planning to man the office during limited hours of the day.

We would like to thank all of you for your custom and support over the years and hope that it will not be too long before we can welcome you to The Speech House Hotel.

Best wishes and good luck in the months ahead.

Peter and Gill Hands
