I'd stayed in several hotels in Eastbourne but this will now be my first choice next time. A good central location, impeccably maintained property tastefully decorated in a contemporary, mid-century-ish manner, top-quality fittings throughout, and welcoming staff. I believe it was David the owner who made breakfasts when I was there; he could have been a chef! A delicious start to the day.
Thank cirulac

A lovely hotel but not if you have trouble walking up stairs. There is a flight of about 10 steps up to the door, and we where on the top floor. But that's all the bad points. The room was large and aired. The room and bathroom were both spotless with all the usual towels and toiletries you would expect. It was a bit cold at first but they had provided a heater which soon warmed the room up. The breakfast was very well cooked and a large choice, both continental and English. The positioning is close (5 min walk) to both the front and the train station. The only slight problem was car parking Eastbourne general y is a problem. We were lucky, as the Hotel only has on-street car-parking. They provided a disc for free parking though on the street and there was room after about 6pm.
Finally the owner was very friendly and helpful, even contacting us regarding a a pair of glass left in the room.
Thank Philip H

What a great find, stayed in room 6 which is very large.
This hotel has value for money in abundance. Lovely little extras and a perfect host.
Highly recommend whether on business or some time near the coast. Less than 10 mins walk from the train station .

Really enjoyed our stay at the Ravilious. The room was very large and comfortable with nice decor, also quiet. The breakfast was really excellent, one of the best enjoyed at a b & b. Would definitely return.

I am sorry I didn't answer this question when you asked. I was new to tripadvisor and hadn't got a clue about communicating with others until now! Sorry again
