We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights on a mid week deal which included some meals.
The hotel is gorgeous and the room was very large, it came complete with change mat, steriliser, bottle warmer and travel cot. All of which were handy.
The hotel is geared towards families and even has an onsite crèche.
We used the swimming pool during our visit which was lovely and clean which excellent changing facilities.
Both nights we ate in the conservatory with our 7 month old. The food is very good and the menu selection was wide.
At breakfast we also used some the baby feeding equipment provided. All very useful.
A few points which I feel could improve the hotel would be a way of serving child's meals before the adults meals, a few families seem to struggle at meal times getting everyone fed!
Also the rooms could included wipes/cotton wool which would be one less thing to pack.
Finally a mini tour/intro upon checking in would be useful, we were given a info pack but with a baby, a visual tour would have been useful.
A great stay though, we will definitely be back.
- 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
