Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Excellent hosts who ensured that your stay was comfortable, professionally managed, but above all, friendly. The breakfast menu was first class and cooked there and then with nothing too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend this venue for all the foregoing reasons and access to sea front, shops and railway station. Just excellent.

Above and Beyond...
Just loved our stay here; the room was spacious and comfortable and had all the amenities that one could wish for. The hosts were amazing, helpful, fun and went over and above to ensure our stay was memorable. Breakfast was copious and delicious. I hope I have another occasion to visit Eastbourne so I can book this hotel again! Thank you Caroline and Chris!

Raving about Ravilious!
Ravilious was a great find! Fabulously well appointed, spacious room with excellent service from Chris (sorry we didn't get to meet Caroline!). It was conveniently located close to the centre of town, restaurants and the promenade. Breakfast was well prepared and tasty. We will be back!
