We were once again delighted by our 3-night stay at Ickworth. We had two adjoining small family rooms which were nicely appointed and spacious and booked the dinner, bed and breakfast rate. We made use of the grounds and facilities whilst we were there and our two boys loved the kids club, the movie room, the adventure playground and pool.... More

Once again a joy. Fantastic room for me and my 11 year old overlooking park. We spent time in the pool once entirely alone. Dinner was lovely. Staff helpful and attentive. Breakfast lovely - great choice of continental and I particularly loved the bread. We will be back.

We have just returned from a wonderful break at the Ickworth and we absolutely will return again. There are lots of reasons for this feedback. The hotel is set amongst beautiful parkland and gardens and is a historic building, making it feel like you are staying in your very own piece of Downton Abbey. The food was superb, and as... More

Stayed with our children and know the chain of hotels well. Facilities were superb and catered brilliantly for children. Crèche and spa were excellent and the staff really accommodated the children. Huge let down was the inconsistency of service from the restaurant staff, at best some of the team really pulled out their best efforts but more often than not... More

We booked a "family double" for two adults. Given that the rate for this room was 240% of the rate for a standard double, I had expected something a little bit more impressive. The room was disappointing, relatively small and poor value. There was no view out of the window other than the roof and parapet of the building. Although... More

We went there for a afternoon tea and we were blown away, what an amazing place, staff very pleasant, and the food was beautiful. The grounds of the hotel are lovely to stroll round as is the building, very interesting.

Visited with my daughter and mother in law for a spa day whilst on holiday. Excellent full treatments rather than mini treatments you might get on other spa days. Staff very friendly, welcoming and well trained. Superb two course lunch included (up to £30) with salted caramel cheesecake being a real highlight! Hotel is pleasant and family friendly (with a...

I can't fault the staff at Ickworth Lodge, they were so polite and very accommodating throughout our stay. The hotel is part of a National Trust property so steeped in history and beautiful throughout. The grounds are stunning - perfect for a bike ride around the gorgeous landscape and plenty of other activities to keep us occupied.

We enjoyed a one night family stay in the hotel. Our room rate was over £200 so not cheap. The setting is fabulous and very peaceful it's perfect for leisurely stay with children. There's loads of nice touches for kids with sports equipment etc. My frustration comes with the room which was large but had very basic / low quality... 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
