On a rainy day, this was the perfect location for some chat time and antipasta. A wonderful slate of food arrived very speedily. It was perfect with some very fresh bread. The staff were very helpful and very relaxed, allowing my friend and I time to gossip. It is a lovely, elegant location and close to Bury, for good shopping,... More

We booked Friday and Saturday night in the three bedroom lodge. This was for 2 adults and 2 children DBB at £535 per night. We checked out in disgust on Saturday morning. The entire reception area smelt of dog when we arrived. It is lovely that family pets are welcome but care should then be taken to ensure areas are... More

We have just returned from two decadent weeks at the Ickworth with our kids. A perfect way to relax! All the staff were friendly, and particular thanks to the manager who handled some initial teething problems with charm and efficiency. We have stayed in several other hotels in this chain, and the Ickworth measures up. With the added joy of... More

Just come home from Afternoon Tea at the Ickworth Hotel. Location is fabulous. We had always wanted to visit this hotel as we often vist the National Trust property on the same site. But my Husband and I were very disappointed. It certainly does not match to other afternoon teas at other hotels/restaurants that we have experienced. Sandwiches were tasteless... More

I was looking for a last minute weekend away with the wife.... When arriving you are greeted by beautiful grounds covered in trees and animals -- arriving at the beautiful building which is the hotel - all the rooms and playrooms were beautiful! - dinner was of a very high quality and tasty - breakfast could use a little work...

I took my mum for afternoon tea as a belated birthday treat and have to say my overall feeling was of disappointment. There was a cleaner vacuuming while we ate which was quite annoying and noisy, we weren't sat at a proper table just a little sofa where there were crumbs all over the floor and we were next to...

Set in 1800 acres of national trust land this hotel is truly magnificent. However it is child friendly which means loads of kids! Perhaps quieter in term time but bear in mind it is not a peaceful retreat. We took family along with 3 grand children 5, 6 and 7 years plus dog and they had a brilliant time running... More

A group of 4 of us visited for afternoon refreshments after looking round the NT property. Three of us just had pots of tea and one of us had the cream tea. The drinking tea was excellent and very tasty & refreshing but the cream tea was very disappointing & extremely bad value for money. It consisted of two very... More

Hello Dave T I am very sorry to hear your comments of The Ickworth Cream Tea. We are glad you enjoyed the tea that was drunk, we are dissappointed that you would favour the NT Restaurant instead of The Ickworth. We will leave the choice up to yourselves. I have made the team fully aware of your comments and will... More

Stayed here for two nights with dinner included. We were in the annexe - nice and quiet and a pleasant walk through the NT property to dine. The evening meals were better than the breakfasts in terms of quality. The hotel is not top quality but its location puts in the must go category. Will visit again one day. Ickworth... More

Hello Ray J Thank-you so much, for your kind words. The Lodge at The Ickworth is sometimes overlooked by travellers as it is a short walk from the main hotel. We are glad your stay with us was UNFORGETTABLE and the location completed the picture and made your stay truly excellent. We hope to see you back at The Ickworth... More

We had afternoon tea here as a gift. We ate in the conservatory which would have been nice except for a lot of wasps which were constantly hounding us. Not the fault of the hotel I know but it was a bit of pain to be constantly swiping them away from the food. The afternoon tea itself was average. The... 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
