Ravilious
Ranked #8 of 75 Eastbourne B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2014

In May we were given the glorious gift of a night at the beautiful Ravilious Hotel; we loved it so much we came back and stayed for 10 nights!

Ravilious is a truly wonderful place to stay; if you are visiting Eastbourne why would you stay anywhere else? The rooms are stunning, the service is second to none and the staff are helpful and friendly!

Thank you Frank, Junior and Rachel for welcoming us, looking after us and making us feel at home.

Room Tip: We stayed at the top of the Hotel and the room was stunning.

Thoroughly recommend Ravilious - such warm and friendly and welcoming hosts - everything is beautifully streamlined and elegant (funky and very pleasing furniture, and wonderfully decorated throughout). It feels and is very special, and I was reluctant to leave after only one night. It's quiet and tranquil, and 'cool' in every sense of the word! I will be back soon .....

Stayed for one night in this little gem of a hotel . Great decor and excellent breakfast. Very attentive and helpful staff and suitably convenient for the beach, the main gallery and the town centre (shame the pier had burned down the day before we got there!)

Perfect hotel with a lovely combination of a precious old house with a modern furnishing and decoration. Frank and his staff are very friendly. We wanted to leave early on our second day and they did a lot of trouble to serve us a nice breakfast. Parking in the street is free with their help.

Room Tip: Room nr 2 is a nice room. (big, nice furnishing and a view at the garden). Only the corners of the b...

We stayed at the Ravillous Hotel for one night when we attended a wedding. The Hotel staff were very helpful and made us feel welcome. The Hotel décor was lovely and the cooked breakfast was very good. We would definitely recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Superior room and this was lovely.

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.
