I highly recommend this lovely family orientated hotel. We had a large family room called Louis which is in the main house. Our room had a lovely view of the gardens. The room had blackout curtains (useful for our 6 month old baby!) and because it was in the main house, the room also had a listening service so we... More

We've just spent 2 nights here (2 adults & 2 kids) and had a wonderful time. We stayed in 'John Hervey' which is a gorgeous family room on the 2nd floor of the main house facing the gardens. The view is breathtaking. I read heaps of reviews before booking the hotel and selecting our room. Here are my top 10... More

Happy to accommodate a table with no prior booking the staff in the Conservatory restaurant were excellent in every way. Food arrived quickly, piping hot and on hot plates! Simple dishes perfectly cooked and very tasty. The one wall with no windows bedecked with fairy lights added to the relaxed atmosphere, garden tables available in the immaculate gardens.

Spent Sunday to Tuesday at this Hotel. Set in amazing grounds and part of Ickworth stately home. Spent a couple of hours looking around the stately home where there are guided tours starting at 11am. Bikes are available to ride around the grounds and there is an indoor swimming pool. The rooms have names rather than numbers and we were... More

This hotel is part of the National Trust 'Ickworth' Manor House and obviously in a great location within the estate grounds. There is a swimming pool and loads of bikes for children as well as adults. which you can borrow free of charge to ride round the grounds whenever you like. There are two restaurants but children are only allowed... More

We stayed in the Family lodges which are c.15min walk from the main hotel complex. The lodge is adequately furnished but not luxurious. We ate at the hotel restaurant for lunch and dinner. The service is a little slow due to lack of staff rather than I think attitude. The menus are adequate but not a wide choice. The main... More

Location is fantastic: great grounds, bikes to cycle around on and the National Trust property to explore. Restaurants are both very good with the service in both excellent. A shout out to Adam, the food and beverages manager, whose enthusiasm and knowledge for alcohol turned a good meal at Fredrick's into a never-forget experience. Our heads were much sorer for...

We got a "deal" through secret escapes. Usually this hotel is £350 per night bed and breakfast we paid £195 for dinner bed and breakfast. I would be fuming if I had paid the usual advertised rate but due to the deal I am a little more calm. I have stayed in luxury hotels all over the world from London... More

Positives - Hotel is set in beautiful grounds. The Hotel is geared to families and can accommodate 4/5 persons. Our family room was generous, clean and furnished nicely, in keeping with the hotel's character. Facilities are great with free bike hire, indoor pool and plenty of free sports equipment to keep both kids and adults occupied. Staff worked hard and... More

The hotel is furnished in keeping with its history - stately home splendour with a 60's twist. We stayed in a standard room which was very comfortable. We had been offered an upgrade at a small extra charge but chose to stick with what we had booked and were very happy with the room. We stayed in Molly's, it has... 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
