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

We booked Ickworth Hotel through Secret Escapes, so got a great deal! We stayed in the Lodge, Hornbeam room, which was quite nice but not outstanding - but may be you don't expect the best room for a budget package. Full English breakfast and 3 course dinner were included, and the food was great. The Conservatory restaurant seems to have... More

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

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
