This is a really nicely set and presented hotel. Great rooms, great setting, lovely grounds, good facilities. There are two restaurants - choice a bit limited, and, I think, over priced. The one critical thing to keep in mind here is your attitude to young families. The hotel is set up for young families - which is great, but you... More

Stayed in this hotel for a training course for 3 days, luckily with sufficient spare time so I really could enjoy my stay in this hotel. Rooms are really fine, lots of space with good bed, chairs and a big bathroom. The accommodation is well prepared and clean. The staff is really great, they are helpful and give you quick... More

I spent a night here recently on business. Whilst I didn't have the opportunity to take best advantage of all of the facilities on offer, I had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely go back for leisure if I was visiting that part of the world. My room had a lovely view over the grounds and a wonderfully luxurious... More

We recently had a few days at the Ickworth and had mixed feelings when we left. The hotel is located in beautiful countryside which is well worth exploring on the free bikes provided. Although we did not use them it looked like the facilities provided for babies and children were well liked as there were a number of young families... More

We had a one night stay as part of a Secret Escapes deal. The hotel is located in lovely rolling countryside and part of the adjacent National Trust property. Our bedroom "Louis" was very spacious with a large bed and ensuite overlooking the gardens at the rear of the premises. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We used... More

We stayed for one night as a treat and It was expensive. H owever, if you took full advantage of all its facilities (free use of bikes to explore its extensive land and beautiful gardens,historic church, games room,swimming pool, complimentary voucher to enter the National Trust house), then it becomes value for money. Our room was a little smaller than... More

We stayed one night at the Ickworth Hotel as part of a late deal through an internet search engine. The hotel is very impressive on arrival, and all staff we met were excellent. Check in was very easy and once at our room we were really impressed. It was very large with a separate lounge area and spacious bathroom. Plenty... More

There are definitely cheaper places to stay than the Ickworth Hotel, but if you want true luxury from a hotel that doesn't take itself too seriously then I would thoroughly recommend that you stay here. The hotel is in the wing of a National Trust property which was unfortunately closed for renovation when we stayed. This in no way detracted... More

Hotel is very well maintained and the rooms are clean and always made up. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Though breakfast is very limited and lunch & diner were very very bland, awful rosti type thing served under the fish/meat etc. which was burnt and tasted awful - definitely wouldn't visit again. A very ordinary place. We were really... More
