This was one of the best accomodation where I ever stayed! And I usually stay in very nice hotels. Decor, bath in the bedroom, breakfast, everything was just perfect! If I will plan to visit Eastbourne again I will definitely come back here!

After spending ages reading reviews on Eastbourne Hotels I came to the conclusion that Ravilious was the best I could get without paying for The Grand. The big question for me is does it deserve 5 stars. Location wise I would say its 4 star. No off street parking but plenty of on street parking outside. It’s a 10/15 minute...

I took my lovely fiance for a single night and found a deal that pointed me in the direction of Ravilious. It was the highest rated hotel I found and I can now see why - beautiful, in a peaceful location, slightly out of the way with lovely decor, high ceilings, clean, and very comfy! Breakfast was tasty the whole...

The hotel is close to the centre of Eastbourne in a quiet location. You can get a free parking permit from the hotel. All the staff were very helpful. Good welcome, very nice room with a double bed, sofa, table, large bath and large shower. The breakfast was very good. I would recommend it.
