The Speech House Hotel

The Speech House Hotel


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 the perfect combination of original charm and modern hotel and wedding venue facilities.

Step outside and take in the breathtaking 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.

The Orangery and bar provides a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy some traditional pub food after a day’s business, sightseeing, or a dog walk in the forest. Our bar is open to both residents and non-residents. It offers the perfect environment for relaxed suppers and light snacks – all under the personal guidance of our Head Chef.The Orangery is dog and children friendly. We offer a walk-in service so pre-booking is not necessary. Tables are subject to availability on the day.

Dogs are welcome in the Orangery restaurant.

Our Dog Friendly Rooms are any of the Courtyard Rooms. These rooms are accessed from the car park and the approach into the hotel is covered. They are modern and compact with shower rooms en suite. They are ideal for those guests who are out and about exploring the area and good for guests who wish to bring their dog.
