Arrived at the hotel to be told room was not available because of problem with shower. We were told we could upgrade to another room but was fifteen minute walk to a separate block which was old, tired and in need of a lot of tlc, so we opted to take the room with the broken shower. Room was comfortable, had a nice bed with good quality bedding but was not told when booking about renovations at hotel which were ongoing. Evening meal was good and staff were pleasant and knowledgeable. Breakfast was very poor, disorganised and lacking in leadership. Was not told it was buffet style, which ordinarily would not have been a problem but food was supposed to have been available from 07.30 and was more like 08.00 with lots of families with young children waiting for the rest of the hot food to be put out. Was not asked if we wanted toast or bread and they only just managed to ask if we wanted tea or coffee! We booked and paid in advance and on check out I was expecting some sort of recompense for being without a shower but was offered nothing, indeed, we were asked to pay in full. I explained we had already paid but it took a while for the receptionist to work it out even though I had our booking paperwork with us! would not recommend this hotel to any one ever and reading the TripAdvisor comments would not have booked it save for a recommendation from a work colleague.

Myself and other half have just returned from this very special place. We love love love staying here, and this being our first visit around Christmastime was truly magical. On pulling into the carpark Santas sleigh and reindeers and three jolly snowmen were proudly placed to greet all guests. There were even cheeky Christmas pudding bushes in another part of the gardens. So lovely to get us all in the festive mood. As usual we had a warm friendly greeting from the lovely girls on reception. Alina, I still don't know your perfume ! The house was so very tastefully decorated, and with the biggest magnificent Christmas tree we had seen in a long time. We were blown away. Just wonder what the little ones must have felt. What a smashing place for all of those lucky children ( and parents) who will be spending the big day next week here. This stay, we were treated to the Grand Tour room. Beautiful, it lived up to its name. It had the biggest bed we had ever had the pleasure to sleep in. Eight foot I believe. Lovely outlook ( we could even see those Christmas pudding bushes) and the usual luxury touches, we have come to love from this hotel. Dinner later in Fredericks was scrumptious as always. Cosy intimate surroundings, and delicious food and wine, made for another evening to remember, helped of course by Bruno ( bless you) and the restaurant team who make sure everything runs smoothly. After another totally relaxed night ( yes the bed was as comfy as it was large) we woke to a delicious tasty buffet breakfast, with quality full English treats and the usual cereals, breads juices etc. We were once again set up for our day ahead. It's always such a let down to have to leave this beautiful, charming, warm hearted hotel. The team ( with especial huge huge thanks to Faye x who always makes the magic happen for all of our stays) work tirelessly to make sure all their guests are so very looked after. We are soooooo very envious of those who are getting ready to spend their Christmas here next week. Lucky lucky people. A huuuuugggeee Happy Christmas and New Year to all the lovely staff of Ickworth. It goes without saying, we can't wait for our next visit. Much love. Karen and Steve x Collapse

The hotel is unique in design, warm and comfortable, with freindly staff. The menu is appetising and the wine list offers some decent wines without breaking the bank. Service is pleasant and attentive, if slightly amateurish. The pool is well worth a visit, and the grounds offer level walking on gravel paths. Altogether a memorable stay. Collapse

This is an unusual review as my friend and I did not actually stay over night. We had a spa slot booked for 2 double full body massages. When we arrived we picked up a voicemail saying the staff had regretfully called in sick and they would need to be cancelled. However we were greeted by the female manager who apologized profusely, told us to grab a complimentary tea or coffee and she would try to sort something out. And sort she did!! We were made to feel very important to her and brought hot drinks and croissants in the library in front of the fire. She sadly failed to cover our treatments with her own staff but we were given another hot drink and a voucher to return! (Im sorry I forgot this manager name) She then arranged us to have treatments at the Spa down the road, (which we had used before and it was not great) but we agreed to give it another go. So our girly day was completely turned around by this manager, what could have ended in two woman leaving sad and miserable, was the complete opposite. Hardly anyone these days knows the meaning of going above and beyond and amazing customer service but today I saw it, and felt it. Well done and thank you so much !! :-) Collapse

Me and my friend visited the hotel for a 2x night break. We had a lovely relaxing time. There are lots of walks we could do in the gardens located literally next to the hotel. Perfect for runners as well! We could hire bikes directly from the hotel and go cycling. The swimming pool was really relaxing, perfect temperature of the water and it stays open till 9pm. All the staff were very helpful and welcoming. They would always try and go an extra mile to make sure we're having a great time. Would highly recommend dining here as the food was just perfect. We also had the BEST pot of tea after our dinner. Collapse

Stayed here for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Booked via Secret Escapes. We love to stay in beautiful historic buildings and this certainly fitted the bill. The hotel is situated in one wing of this National Trust building and we received complementary entry (although we are members already). The gardens are beautiful too. We ate in the restaurant and the food and setting were both lovely. Highly recommend the chateaubriand. Would definitely recommend a stay. Collapse
