Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Ravilious - everything about the hotel was perfect. We loved the decor our room was fantastic and breakfast was delicious. We were in eastbourne for AEGON county cup so the position of the hotel was ideal for us.

Room Tip: Based on the rooms we had - imagine every room would be of a high standard

My wife, daughter and I stayed for two nights and from the moment we stepped into the building knew we'd found a gem. The decor, is modern and tasteful, our room (overlooking the tennis courts) spacious and incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the location perfect for exploring the area. Though we have family in Eastbourne we didn't begrudge spending the money as this B&B is by far the best we've stated in for a very long time. If you like 'boutique' you'll love Ravilious.

Stylish small hotel in a nice quiet and convenient position. Great breakfast and friendly staff. Room spacious and clean, though wooden bed frame could be a hazard. Unfortunately, TV was unwatchable due to bad local digital reception. Hotel ought to invest in satellite to ensure TV can be accessed. Other problem concerned the shower thermostat which gave water that was either cold, or very hot.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel which was quiet.

The hotel is a treat to stay in, with lovely breakfast/ lounge room. The decor is stylist and contemporary. The rooms are clean, functional, and stylist - very clean and tidy throughout. The welcome was brilliant, we felt very happy there and didn't wish to leave.
Breakfast was exceptional, and they catered for my gluten free diet. Plus later in the day you can buy an alcoholic beverage which was very nice.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2.

A really beautiful and unique hotel. The room was really light and airy and you could tell they had taken a real pride in decorating the place and maintaining its cleanliness. The staff could not be more helpful and I will absolutely be staying again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was beautiful and clean. Would definitely recommend. The breakfast was great and they were very keen to make sure we were catered for as vegetarians. A great place to stay in Eastbourne.
