Ravilious: Eastbourne bed and breakfast ranked among best in UK according to TripAdvisor

A bed and breakfast in Eastbourne has been named among the best in the UK according to Tripadvisor. The popular reviewing website recently released a list of the top 25 B&Bs and inns in the UK as part of its Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards 2022.

Ravilious, a popular B&B not far from Eastbourne’s seafront, has become the sole Sussex B&B to make the list. Ravilious came in 21st place and can now carry the title of the best B&B in Sussex.

Tripadvisor subtitled it as a list offering “sweet, serene stays that mellowed out travellers.” An array of beautiful-looking places have made the 25, making it an even more noteworthy achievement for the Eastbourne B&B.

Located in a stylishly decorated Victorian house on Blackwater Road, Ravilious appears to be brimming with charm. Eight bedrooms offer ample guest space within the town’s ‘cultural quarter’.

With the seafront a mere five minute walk from the front doors of the B&B, there is no surprise that it is so popular. And with an overwhelming supply of restaurants and plenty of walking routes nearby, there are plenty of opportunities to stay both well fed and well exercised upon your visit.

The food on offer at Ravilious is seemingly of great quality too with one satisfied guest proclaiming to have had the “best sausages I’ve eaten in a long time”. Another guest simply described the breakfast as “fantastic”.

Ravilious’ Tripadvisor page is overflowing with good reviews. After almost 900 reviews, the B&B maintains its 5 star rating.

Out of 880 reviews, 788 of them are ‘excellent’, with a further 80 being deemed ‘very good’. Only 12 reviews have given Ravilious an ‘average’, ‘poor’, or ‘terrible’ rating.

Do not hesitate to book once you’re planning to go to Eastbourne.”
