This was our third visit to Ickworth with our 2 children & dog. We love it here. It's shabby chic and very relaxed. Full of kids and the kids love it. They can cycle, swim, trampoline, explore the amazing grounds, view the house and play in the adventure play ground! They also loved the high tea and cinema room at... More

Myself, my husband and two children have just returned from a lovely weekend at the Ickworth. We stayed in the lodge as this is a bit cheaper than the hotel and I'm glad we did. It was very private and we rode the bikes to and from the hotel which the kids loved. This is a lovely classy hotel but... More

We stayed for a long weekend in June with our 2 year old. The hotel is part of the national trust building so you could not want for a more beautiful environment and stunning hotel building. The reception is not always staffed and they were a bit vague about where the lodge part was where we were staying. We liked... More

Reception services were excellent. Standard of accommodation was generally good but the furniture in the main areas is out of keeping with the property. The staff generally good. Quality of food and choice average. The adult dining room is a bit characterless and uninviting. We would probably recommend to a friend but needs some polishing.

Thank you for your feedback, it was most helpful particularly your comments about the Fredericks Restaurant. the furniture , whilst not being classical, is designed to meet our family market and be able to withstand the level of young children staying. Thank you again for your good comments on reception and the accommodation. More

We only had an evening meal at this lovely hotel, but the staff were incredibly friendly and the meal we had at Fredricks was amazing! I didn't get the names of the waitress & waiter who served us but they were both very attentive & professional! The food was excellent & full of flavour, although I was disappointed that I... More

Thank you for your very kind comments with regard to your dinner in Fredericks and I am delighted that the staff were so attentive to you. As to dress code , we have never laid down such instructions as we believe that guests should be comfortable whilst respecting other diners. Hope to see you again soon. More

Fab room with gorgeous views. The hotel manages a clever stylish twist with retro and classical furnishings. A lovely pool which contrary to the comments read was not a "kid soup" Dinner was wonderful if a little pricey - I think we could do without the 10% service charge. Breakfast in the conservatory - very good quality and choice. Lovely... More

Had a lovely day at Ickworth Hotel for afternoon Champagne Tea! Very friend staff and Table looked really nice. If I have one small criticism it was that we had to keep asking for extra cutlery and was missing 1 tea cup even though I had booked for 3 people. I would defiantly go back though😃

Thank you for your kind comments regarding afternoon tea, I am very sorry that the lay up for your table was incorrect, this probably relates to being shown to the wrong table. Our apologies but I am delighted that you enjoyed the tea and we look forward to your return. More

10 of us were treated by our friend to an afternoon tea. We started the day with coffee in the West Wing and then had an enjoyable walk around the estate. Although we were booked in at 15:30 the staff could not be more accommodating as one of our party had to leave early. We had an amazing cream tea.... More

Okay so I have high expectations and am contrary to the majority or reviews on here but we won't be coming back or recommending this hotel. This is our last night and we plan to leave early in the morning to make better use of the last days of holiday time we have left. For the prices they charge compared... More

Thank you for your balanced feedback on your recent stay at the Ickworth. Patently where it mattered we failed and I am sorry that the Wi-Fi was not consistent enough, this may well be the significant level of tablets used by children these days that takes up most of our bandwith.
