#1 of 2 hotels in Horringer
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? The Ickworth is unique. It's also one of the finest luxury family hotels in the UK.

We paid £739 for one overnight stay in the butlers quarters.It was for our grand daughters 9th birthday.16thJuly/17th July 2021 On arrival as it was earlier than 3pm the rooms weren’t t ready so the receptionist took our payment. She never told us anything about the grounds or where the children had any entertainment. We had to find out for our selves. I would suggest the receptionist gives new arrivals a quick update on where the fairy garden is,children’s playground,cinema etc or give the guests a hotel map. Positives of the accommodation. Comfortable beds and clean. Negatives. Had to walk past a dumped car outside the accommodation! Courtyard full of dried leaves. No milk in condiment tray. Coffee cups do not fit under coffee machine. Ordered some feather pillows on booking,but none there when we arrived. We didn t need the stair gate,but on inspection if a toddler was to give it a hard shove,think they may fall down the stairs,as it wasn’t t very secure. Patio table and chairs full of bird poo,so my hubby cleaned them up. For that price I would not have expected to chase up pillows and milk ,cleaned patio set and as magnificent the building is ,attention to detail is required. The outside snack area is pleasant,staff friendly,but service quite slow. Lunchtime snacks quite nice. This leads me onto dinner time. We booked for 6pm. Dead flies on the window chills in conservatory. ordered drinks,but the service was very slow. Had to ask 3 times for a jug of tap water. Hubby and son in law had quail. This arrived after an hour. Tasteless ,no seasoning and over cooked. The mains arrived at 8.10pm ,2 hrs after ordering. Both lemon sole s had a texture of slime and smelt disgusting,it was unedible and we had to send it back. The steaks arrived and were not cooked as ordered ,plus we were told the sauce would arrive in 5 minutes! The chips were tasteless too. Needless to say all 4 dinners went back and we still hadn t hardly eaten anything! Jason the young duty manager was very apologetic and said he would take the money off the bill. They supplied us with almonds,bread and oil,olives and chips for free. It was a disaster and not what we would expect from such a grand place. One of the waitresses Megan,was very helpful and sweet. These two members of staff shine out from the rest. The breakfast the next day was not that great either. The eggs weren’t cooked enough for the eggs benedict,very runny. Full English portions were very small and no toast offered either. I would say go for a day in the national trust park as the grounds are beautiful,but save your money and don t bother staying in the hotel. We were given what we had paid for the meal back plus free bike hire for 4 (£40) Would rather have paid full price and enjoyed the experience more.

We booked two night (29/06-02/07) stay in The Ickworth hotel through Travelzoo special dinner bed and breakfast offer. I must start with saying that the staff was amazing, friendly and professional! We received an afternoon tea as complimentary because of the changes and cancellations, Covid-19. On arrival we were greeted by two young ladies and then shown to our room Chudleigh. Room was big and well cleaned. Hotel is part of the Ickworth Estate, hotel and rooms are old-fashioned and slightly worn out, but that is part of its beauty. Meals were served in the Conservatory and adults only Frederick's restaurant. All food was freshly made, local and seasonal ingredients as much as possible. It was presented beautifully and was very tasty. Menu lists were varied enough for everyone's taste. Any questions that we had about the food on the menu, were answered immediately, staff new what they were serving. During our stay we had some treatments, which were good and very friendly staff. We received free entrance tickets to the Ickworth House from the reception, which is next door. Beautiful big National Trust gardens around the whole estate. Worth a visit! We enjoyed our stay and would be very happy to go again, excellent staff and food!

It was a priviledge to visit this beautiful building. Is it a house, is it a meseum, is it a hotel or retsurant ? I haven't seen such a wonderful architecture for years and to have supper here was a joy. I am American and I am loving everything about UK, it may sound dorky but its true. Friends had out children so my husband and me dined alone and I felt very special though parts of the experience didnt really work but thats not what this review is about, I'm feeling like a princess just to get to go here. Maybe they jack up the price because of the covid but I dont care, our waiter was Prince Charming but I'm not gonna identify him more!

We have just returned from a beautiful birthday treat break with my bestie, at our most favourite place. As always it didn’t disappoint and we truly feel so refreshed after a very well needed break. From the moment we stepped through the door, we enjoyed it all. The team are so friendly and welcoming, our room was wonderful. Everything safe and so clean during these very difficult times. The staff made us feel so welcome, and as near as possible to normal. Sadly it rained a lot during our stay, but we did manage a little walk around the grounds this morning. Lovely ! We enjoyed an excellent steak dinner in relaxed, cosily lit After a wonderful sleep, we woke to a warm greeting again in the restaurant and delicious English breakfast to start us on our way home. Thank you for a lovely stay
