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😃

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

An excellent hotel for families with young toddlers. From the first hello to departure staff are very welcoming towards your little ones: - Toys are provided in most public rooms and bedrooms and there are two excellent play areas; one for younger ones and one for the more adventurous older ones. - Children's food is good quality and varied. -...

Crisp white table cloth, crisp white serviettes - good start. Afternoon tea in the light and airy orangery. Food was delicious, plentiful tea. Pity the staff were not very interested in their customers. There is a line between being over attentive and not bothering and the staff came close to not bothering. Had to search for someone to pay the... More

We arrived at the Ickworth on Saturday lunch time. We had booked a two bedroom apartment with its own kitchen facilities and lounge area etc. We requested ground floor as we have three small children. We were unfortunately told the hotel had double booked our apartment. We were given as an alternative a double room at the very top of... More

This is a wonderful family friendly hotel, and even though we went as a couple it is obviously very focused on children. That said the noise of children giggling in the corridors and having fun is a great sound. During the evenings the place is very quiet. Restaurant is lovely with very friendly staff. We have eaten here on several... More
