The 3 star Speech House is a 31 bedroom hotel dating from 1676 when it was used as a hunting lodge for King Charles II. Within easy access of main road and rail links the Speech house is your ideal venue to explore the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. Comfortably appointed bedrooms, several with four-poster beds have been tastefully refurbished and offer modern facilities while retaining their original charm, most overlooking the romantic wilderness of the surrounding Forest of Dean. The beamed Verderer's Court restaurant reflects the room's continuing use as a courthouse for the Foresters of Dean, while the more intimate Freeminers Restaurant maintains links with one of the unique Forest traditions of Gloucestershire.
Our bar and restaurant are open to both residents and non residents. They offer a perfect environment for informal meals, light snacks, evening dinner or a special celebration, all under the personal guidance of our Head Chef, Anthony Lewington. And if you are looking for a place to stay and enjoy the surrounding walking, cycling and local activities, then look no further.
We can also arrange facilities for up to 150 people for weddings and conferences.

All our meeting rooms are light and airy, our staff are experienced and accommodating and our aim is to make sure that your event goes without a hitch. We fully understand the pressures experienced by conference organisers and trainers, you'll find us willing and flexible, and our food's excellent too.
Our conference facilities, set within the hotel, are superb and distraction free. We're in the middle of some of the UK's finest unspoilt Gloucestershire woodland with a flat 16 acre paddock adjoining the hotel which is available for your use.
