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.

What a lovely place to stay. Really nice room, friendly efficient staff, great food and a lovely atmosphere. The bikeride before breakfast..sneaking a look at the walled garden...was an experience I shall treasure, peace and quiet around the vast estate early in the morning. I shall definitely come back with my grandson as its a Family Friendly hotel...they seem to have thought of everything for little ones and they were made most welcome. Not something to be found in many hotels. Collapse
Could be great.

Stopped for 3 nights on a Secret Escapes deal, bed and breakfast and a 2 course evening meal. The room was a standard double being on a deal, but saying that it was quite adequate for the 3 days, nice window seat overlooking the gardens and not overlooked by other rooms. The bathroom was of a good size and had a bath and a shower over the bath. We have had bigger rooms but still ok. The hotel is very interesting being part of a National trust house next door to which all residents have a free pass, which needs to be done ,great bonus to the stay free of charge. The rooms are all decorated to the period of the property and if you look closely enough you can find areas of decay, but not in your face so not a problem to me. The grounds are a credit to the National Trust for both the hotel and the National trust house next door being all in one. The evening meal, there are two restaurants to choose from. One a conservatory where you have your breakfast and children can eat there to at the evening meal with there parents and the other is more formal, and adults only. We had our 3 evening meals in the adult only restaurant, so can not comment on the other. The food is of good quality and choice and suits all tastes. The staff in the restaurant was extremely helpful and pleasant and a special mention to Christine and Beth both waitress, great people skills and very pleasant and professional. I only give 4 stars because of the the breakfast service was a bit of a disappointment to us, just a few examples of our stay over 3 days, first morning we ordered breakfast my wife comes out after a wait my wife ate hers and finished before we asked about mine it come out much later,luck warm, only one juice on offer, cloudy apple, saying 3 on the menu, no cereal dishes and a bit of a disjointed operation in my view. Other days 2 juices on offer and still long waits for the cooked breakfasts. Also we noticed a fly problem while we were there, I know being out in the country with doors and windows open a few fly's will get in, but saying that it seemed more than any where else, perhaps the large foliage on the wall might attract them.?? A couple we spoke to said they waited 1 hour 10 mins for there breakfast,seems to be out of step with the rest of the hotels service, such a shame really. So I only give 4 stars because of the breakfast experiences. Sort that out and 5 stars all the way. Collapse
Like staying at Downton Abbey for the night!

Staying at this hotel was the highlight of our trip to England. You can feel the history of this country mansion as soon as you enter the house. The hotel is only a small part of the enormous country estate. The rooms on the top floor were simple but adequate, the bathrooms were spacious and fine. The rooms on the second floor were the actual rooms of the Lord and Lady of the estate years ago, but updated. Having breakfast in the conservatory was delightful. The best part was seeing the workings of the lower floors where the servants' bells still hang on the wall, labeled "Billiards room", "Dining room" etc. It truly felt as though we were guests in a home a hundred years ago. (with updated mattresses and a modern day spa) Google Ickworth House to see the entire estate, owned by the National Trust. BEAUTIFUL Collapse

After a six hour nightmare car journey we arrived at the impressive Ickworth Hotel. The receptionist was very kind and upgraded us to suite when we had only booked a basic double. Our room, The Grand Tour, was massive and resplendent with classic furniture and fittings. We felt like we were in the Honeymoon Suite. Evening Meal and breakfast was in the huge Orangery and was of a high quality. Everything from the staff to the building itself was classy and of a very high standard. Next time we are Suffolk this where we will definately be staying. Collapse
Great staff and good experience

We booked a night away through a Secret Escapes deal. Included in the deal fee was entrance to the National Trust property at Ickworth which is certainly worth a visit. The hotel is lovely and our room was exceptionally comfortable and very tastefully decorated. The grounds are great to explore and the hotel provides the use of free cycles and a lovely indoor swimming pool - we actually had it to ourselves. We had afternoon drinks in the garden which were nice but pricey. We had our evening meal in the conservatory and were very fortunate to be looked after by Emily, Michael and Lauren - a trio of talented young people with excellent people skills. We weren't blown away by the quality of the food but the service more than made up for it. The breakfast again failed to impress however the overall experience was great. Collapse
