The Speech House Hotel

About Us

The Speech House Hotel is a former 17th-century hunting lodge set in the heart of the idyllic Royal Forest of Dean. Nestled in the centre of a tranquil forest environment, The Speech House Hotel is independently owned and offers the perfect combination of original charm and modern hotel and wedding venue facilities.

The hotel has 35 comfortable en-suite bedrooms, several with impressive antique master four-poster beds. For dining, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Relax in the informal Orangery and enjoy a tasty lunch, traditional Afternoon Tea or light supper. Or visit Verderers’, our AA Rosette à la carte restaurant, and indulge in a fine dining experience, under the creative guidance of our Head Chef Gareth Jenkins. 

Step outside and take in the breath-taking surrounding scenery – ideal for exploring with the dog, finding a pretty picnic spot or challenging yourself to more adventurous activities.

Whether you’re visiting for dinner, staying for a few days or filling the hotel with friends and family attending your wedding, a warm welcome always awaits.
