Enjoyed afternoon tea in the Conservatory. Excellent, and the complimentary slice of orange cake was a bonus. Manners room was very comfortable although only one easy chair was available and the TV was rather high up on the wall. I emailed management about this and received a prompt response - may discover if any action if we return. Overall, our... More

We stayed here for two nights recently in the Belle Isle bedroom. It was beautiful, with the most stunning views of the Rotunda. I can't fault the room, the Reception staff or the food. We were blessed with sunny weather and walked for miles around the ground, enjoying the stunning scenery and outstanding gardens. The only reason that I've given... More

We had a superb three night break at the Ickworth. We were staying in a two bedroom apartment in the Lodge. The great thing here is that our baby was in a separate room - perfect for day time sleeps. The 'room' also had a kitchenette which was invaluable. It was quiet, had lovely views and the garden at the... More

We have just spent two nights at the hotel. What a lovely place to stay. Our bedroom was nice and roomy with a lovely comfortable bed and en-suit. The highlight of my stay was the food. As a vegetarian at most hotels I am offered lasagna or rissoto, and thats it. At the Ickworth there was a lovely vegetarian menu... More

Two night stay in the Cochrane room on a DB&B offer, excellent facilities, spacious room, lovely deep bath. Fabulous grounds, house & gardens. The adult only restaurant is a good feature, service was good, food excellent if a little pricey (£30 for 2 courses), drinks expensive. A lack of cold meats & cheese on the breakfast menu was slightly disappointing... More

We spent two nights at The Ickworth and enjoyed it very much. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a large well equipped bathroom. The staff were pleasant and very helpful.

There is a swimming pool you could use but it has school children swimming classes all day. Well it was 11am and tea was not due until 3pm. I asked what we could do in the meantime. You can... 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
