Ravilious
Ranked #8 of 75 Eastbourne B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We stayed here on Saturday night and really loved the hotel. I've stayed in a couple of hotels in Eastbourne in the past - one was bordering on awful, one was good. But Ravilious is lovely. I would recommend the hotel again and again to anyone who likes their hotels to be pretty and unique. The decor is superb. The breakfast room is very charming. The breakfast was superb. We both slept like babies on really comfortable beds and it's not often you can say that about hotel beds. The hotel is situated less than 5 minutes walk from the seafront. Frank is courteous and polite and Armando is delightful, giving you lots of information about anything you require. I have, I believe, found my home away from home in Eastbourne. I am utterly grateful for the Ravilious.

Just stayed for one night (would have been 2 but no availability). Good B & B in a great location, minutes away from the sea and town centre. We stayed in an exclusive room, very nice, lovely bathroom with fantastic shower. The bed, though very comfortable, is very low - this was the only slight negative with our stay. Staff were courteous and left us alone. Breakfast (we both had the English breakfast) was very nice, with good quality products and fantastic service. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again.

We were invited to stay at Ravilious as a wedding gift and are we glad we did! Ravilious is exquisite! We had a perfect evening and night in one of their beautiful rooms, which have to be seen to be believed!

We felt completely looked after, the whole Hotel is a work of art, designed to allow guests to feel at home, relaxed and very comfortable.

Thank you so much to Farakh (Frank) and Armando (Junior).

Absolutely lovely staff, incredibly clean and tidy place, with an amazing double room . Great location, very near the sea and city.
We really enjoyed the place and will return for sure. Very worth price.

Room Tip: We stayed in the ground floor room and was really quiet and peaceful.

Having just returned from staying in the luxurious room 10 of this wonderful boutique B&B, I would highly recommend it to anyone who visits Eastbourne. Ideally located, friendly staff, great breakfast and clean.

Unique and wonderful boutique hotel. We stayed in the room 10 - felt very indulgent. Best hotel breakfast I've ever had. Big stylishly decorated room. Nice big, deep bath, enough for two. Great views of International Tennis Court. Amazing staff. I would recommend.

I've never been compelled to write a review before but was so impressed by the perfectly balanced casual professionalism and loving attention to detail that I felt the owners deserve all the praise and success they will achieve.
