Full of old world comfort and charm

Very comfortable stay in a quirky and historic building. There isn't a straight line in the whole place and I loved it! Super friendly staff and delicious breakfast. Will definitely be back!

Convenient for our Requirements

Posted Mar 12, 2017
Pros: The friendly attentive staff.
Cons: Some decorating.
Location: In the forest, nice background. We stayed after the funeral of a family member and therefore we didn't have the opportunity to explore the local are
We stayed at the Speech House following the funeral of a family member. It was convenient for all of us who live away from the area. The Finger Buffet that was supplied was well presented anf enjoyable, the staff involved in looking after us were very professional and attentive to any of our needs. It is true to say that the Hotel decor is a little tired but after all said and done it is a very old building, but our bedroom which was outside the Hotel was very comfortable, the bathroom was large and had some disabled facilities with the exception of the shower which was over the bath, they do have specific disabled rooms available on request. We also had a single bedroom which would have been very useful for a child or a third guest off the main bedroom. All Staff members we encountered were friendly, professional and helpful and seemed happy in thier work. We will stay at the Speech House again if we have the need.

Very good stay. A little dated

Posted Mar 9, 2017
We stayed overnight for a family funeral. There were other family members staying and the staff were wonderful. The room was very clean and comfortable and had the added benefit of a small sitting room. The decor was a little dated but we had everything we needed . Great value for money.

Tired and over priced.

Posted Jul 26, 2016
Pros: Setting
Cons: As above, tired, only needs a little investment to make a big difference.
Had an outside room in what I imagine was an old stable block. The room was stifling hot, with only one window that opened. No wifi at all, no offer of a fan, really badly designed room, why not have windows that open?! Fairly recent conversion, so not impossible to do. And no wifi? For £100, very disappointed.

We had a great long weekend at the hotel, probably the most dog friendly of anywhere web stayed which was great, amazing food and service also.
