This B&B is just lovely. Large, well appointed rooms Hosts could not be more lovely or accommodating. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable We travel to Eastbourn often and ALWAYS stay here(assuming it’s not full). Breakfast is amazing too. Just a peaceful place, located super conveniently to Center of town and train station.

I stayed here with my partner after hiking the seven sisters (from Seaford to Eastbourne). The attic room was large, well decorated and had all the amenities we needed - plus a bath tub which was particularly nice after the hike! Chris & Caroline were very kind and had the room ready for us despite us arriving 3 hours early. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic and well worth a return visit next time we do the seven sisters.

This is by far the best place I have found to stay in Eastbourne. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated and the freshly cooked breakfasts are always delicious. However, what really makes this hotel special is the exceptionally friendly welcome from owners Caroline and Chris. The hotel is very well located near all the attractions and great restaurants and cafés.

You won't find a better place to stay in Eastbourne than Ravilious. Charming hosts, immaculate rooms, great location near to restaurants and sea.....it is the perfect place to be. We were in Room 10 which is nicely furnished with a walk in shower and a bath to soak in while you look out over the Eastbourne tennis courts opposite. Highly recommended. We will be back!
