Frederick's food is very good.
Hotel grounds were lovely.
Massages were good.
Waiting staff quite young and inexperienced. Found it took a while for us to have our breakfast orders taken (the hotel wasnt busy), and for some reason the eggs were always overcooked even when we asked for soft boiled/poached!
Would be nice to have a sauna/steam as well as a pool.
Final bill needed correcting as we were charged for food for our baby even though she was under 2 and therefore as per our booking her food was complimentary.
Wine list is quite expensive - £7 for a small glass of wine is pretty steep, as is £4.50 for a bottle of beer!
- 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
