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.

We have been going to Ickworth for many years. The rooms are really unique, formerly being part of the main house. They are clean and most have wonderful views. You have unrestricted access to the walks around the estate and able to visit the main house free of charge. We often eat in Fredericks restaurant when staying and enjoy both the service and meals. Unfortunately on this occasion the evening meal was poorly cooked and presented, to the extent that my wife was unable to eat the majority of hers. We were advised that the restaurant was very busy; however, don't feel that this should have resulted in a significant reduction in the quality of the food. The meals are not cheap and we have had much better. Hopefully this is just a one off and our next visit to the restaurant will be much improved. After all,the hotel and associated estate have a great deal to offer. Collapse

The grounds and approach were stunning. Check in was very easy with Joan who is fantastic. Our room was lovely although smaller than we expected and if we were to stay again I would ask for another room as "Mollys" was a room with beautiful views but a constant noise of either a boiler or heating system that went on all night. This was made worse by us having the windows open due to it being a warm night. The shower took time to turn on and off, toiletries, robes, towels ect were great! Dinner was ok although not much choice on the menu. My plaice was far too creamy for me but that's a personal choice. We were asked if we would prefer to be in the Adults only dining room which we agreed to seeing as we didn't have our kids with us instead of being in the family dining room, this ended up being a bit of a mistake as 3x couples who shared the room with us all had baby monitors of which 2x went off with the wonderful noise of babies crying whilst eating in our adults-only restaurant. We should have eaten in the family restaurant as this was empty by the time they gave us a table (9 pm). Selfish maybe!!! We were given some free tickets to enter the main house on Sunday but was told by the young chap that we would have to wait till 12 pm as it wasn't open to the public unless we wanted a guided tour. We didn't have time to wait that long so maybe next time I can comment on that! The grounds are beautiful and the overall stay was pleasant. We will return. Collapse

Been here a few times now but it's gone downhill. It's looking a bit shabby and the food is poor. For the price you pay, it's just not acceptable. The staff are, without exception, lovely and hardworking. This is just bad top-level management and not enough money being invested in the basics. Collapse

We booked afternoon tea to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday. With 14 of us (plus a dog) and ages ranging from 3 to 82 we decided to book a private room for our gathering. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty! Reserved seating in the library where we had delicious coffee and home made cookies. Greeted personally by Carol the events manager who made sure of all our requirements were met. Whilst most of the group made the most of the beautiful weather by exploring the grounds and the house, I was able to work with Carol and our wonderful server Wendy to decorate our incredible private room. Afternoon tea was spectacular (and we are quite the connoisseurs) - including special dietary requirements for but allergies and lactose free food (well done the chefs). Wendy was, at all times cheerful, efficient and incredibly accommodating. A particularly lovely touch was mum receiving a special card and gift from the ickworth staff which will be treasured. We cannot thank the staff at ickworth enough for helping us to make such magical memories on such a special day. Carol and Wendy please accept out deepest thanks Collapse
