    The Speech House has an old Main Building with its traditional Verders' Court. The Orangery is new and a really nice room. The staff are excellent and friendly, the food is good, the room we had was spacious and clean. The old part of the hotel shows its age with exposed beams and uneven flooring.

    The Forest was excellent and it made a relaxing break away

    The bed was a bit hard and the room was cold with no extra heating available - it was June so not really expecting that anyway. They use blankets and sheets rather then duvets so it wasnt as comfy as my bed at home. The toilet made a very very loud noise when flushed - we explained to reception so hopefully they will fix the plumbing for next people! A group were celebrating a birthday and woke us up at 3am so coupled with the cold we didnt get as much sleep as expected.

    I enjoyed the huge fourposter bed and the luxury of having a dressing room and en-suite.

    Often found biscuit crumbs were left on our coffee table in the bedroom and not cleaned up properly . Thought the evening meals were rather expensive and would have preferred more choice in the bar menu . It would have been really good to have a mini bar in the hotel room

    The history

    I found the Room we stayed in very small. I would have liked a flat screen TV. You can buy them in Tescos for 50.00 pounds.

  • Couple

    We liked the beams in our room and the general style and history of the hotel. The staff who served breakfast were lovely, very friendly. The staff on reception were also very friendly, helpful and efficient. When we arrived at the hotel to book in, the receptionist could find no record of our internet booking and was very apologetic and quickly found a room for us. Loved the setting of the hotel.

    The sausages served for breakfast were really terrible! Dreadful quality, expected much better for £100 per night bed & breakfast. Also I found the bed in our room to be very uncomfortable, too hard, seemed to slope slighty down to the left ( when sleeping on the right) and the piping on the top side of the mattress is hard and digs into your limbs.

    The hotel was really nice and comfortable and the staff were first class and all of them went out of their way to provide us with an excellent level of service. We will definitely be staying here again.

    Good value for money,staff well trained and helpfull and the breakfast a good standard

    I have no negative points to make regarding this hotel

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Location was excellent, despite being on a busy main road. During my stay, I managed to get to Gloucester, Chepstow and Bath as well as walking the Sculpture Trail, visiting Clearwell Caves and Puzzlewood and walking through the Forest. The food at the Hotel was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay there again

    Outside Courtyard rooms- feeling of no privacy hence request to upgrade to room inside hotel within hour of arrival.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Excellent location in the heart of the Forest of Dean

    The central heating was on a timer so that the rooms were freezing. We complained but were told that it was because of their timer policy. The hotel was not very clean, with the restaurant being quite poor. A very disappointing experience.

  • Couple
    6.6

    The staff were friendly and pleasant. The orangery for lunch and afternoon tea was a lovely environment, light and airy and relaxed. Brilliant location for walking.

    The courtyard room was quite small, and walls to next room were very thin, so everything could be heard next door. Decor in main house/ restaurant was dated and uncomfortable - some may say historic and they may be constrained by listed buildings etc, but less enjoyable to eat in.

  • Older travelers

    All the staff took a lot of trouble and were clearly happy and liking their work.

    excellent friendly hotel in a fantastic location. very good bar and restaurant . very friendly and helpful staff. Also very dog friendly

  • Single
    9.2

    I enjoyed the room space and large bathroom. Hotel staff exceptionally friendly; the lady on reception is particularly welcoming and polite. Hearty breakfast, with real farm produce. Having a key and not a card. A nice comfortable hotel where you can relax and not feel any concern for what you wear.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Room comfort and excellent English breakfast

    No response to my request for any weekend promotion [booked on line} Have used the hotel regularly for many years and surprised to find restrictions and charge for small well behaved dog on this booking.

    Very nice bedroom with excellent bathroom . Friendly and helpful staff . Lovely location. .
