We booked a two night stay as a special offer via the National Trust (who run the other wing of Ickworth as a stately home to visit). Whilst it was a special deal, the room we got was shameful for a hotel which purports to be "luxury". The room name was Manners which on the plan showed as the smallest... More

I booked lunch for my mum's birthday and enjoyed the setting and opulence of the hotel. The food was delicious and the staff couldn't help enough to make my mum's birthday enjoyable for her and the rest of the family. We actually visited on the 25th June so a little late writing this review. Amanda-Jane was particularly welcoming. We will... More

My partner and stayed here for one night and took the opportunity to look around the fantastic Ickworth House and Gardens too. The hotel is based in one wing of the hotel and really benefits from the wow factor that this provides when approaching the hotel. Everywhere was fantastically clean and the staff very pleasant, which always makes a big... More

I've stayed at the ickworth hotel twice now, both times with my family and it's a great family hotel. There are lots of facilities such as a pool, games room, bikes, kids films etc - that does mean lots of kids of course, great if you have them with you as we did, but can't imagine coming here for a...

This might be a family hotel but they also cater very well for couples. From booking until departure, the whole Ickworth experience was a delight. Reduced mobility, affected my activity of experience using pool and bikes, but did not hamper the enjoyment of the NT house and Italianate gardens. The adult only dining room, with lovely food, was a treat.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The East Wing at Ickworth was home to the Hervey family before it passed to the National Trust. The surroundings are as grand as ever but the idea that “children should be seen but not heard” has gone right out of the hundred or more windows. Where else can you go that offers luxurious surroundings, outstanding facilities, exquisite cuisine and family friendly activities? Ickworth is unique. It's also one of the finest luxury family hotels in the UK.we have recently added a Cinema room to our facilities and show children's films every day. ... more   less
