The inn is in a beautiful three story house and is lovingly decorated to give a quaint but very comfortable feel. The owner, Sylvia, and her husband are very hospitable, attentive, and sweet, but also give guests plenty of space, so that you may only see them at check-in and for breakfast (although they live behind the main house, if...

I absolutely loved the beautifully charming cozy Carriage House. It has its very own kitchen, so if you want to save on food it is ideal. I also had my own bathroom with a shower. Loads of drawer space in the event your stay is lengthy. WiFi is available and free. To top it off, Sylvia and her husband Ernie...

I wanted to leave a review after my third visit in three years. I've stayed with Sylvia and Ernie for Dads weekend for the past three years. Each year they are gracious and accommodating hosts. I appreciate their friendly banter and respect for their guests. Sylvia cooks a wonderful breakfast and encourages is dads to invite their son or daughter...

Sylvia and Ernie Sullivan allowed us (a group of 14 men) to rent their beautiful and spacious Bed and Breakfast for a three day weekend retreat. They were very gracious and accommodating, yet they gave us the privacy we needed to conduct out spiritual retreat.

Could not have asked for a nicer place. Sylvia's bed and breakfast is very clean and well maintained. Was a great place to meet with some friends. Sylvia's felt very homey. I can definitely recommend this place!!!

Sylvia and Ernie were ideal B&B hosts; generous and considerate and they seemed to genuinely enjoy getting to know our family. By Sunday, it felt like we were saying goodbye to family. The house itself is fascinating - antique dolls, lots of china and glassware, parquet wood floors, antique lace table cloths. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Each...

The inn is in perfect condition with each room having its own, unique style. You can't go wrong with any of the room choices. When we were there the rooms looked more updated than they did in the website photos. The first/main floor has the foyer, communal living room, dining rooms and kitchen. The second floor has the Animal room...

Sylvia's Irish Inn is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Urbana Illinois. We enjoyed everything about our stay there. The home is beautiful, the food was excellent, Chef Spiro was extremely accommodating to a very picky eater. Can't say enough good things about our stay. This was our first stay in a Bed & Breakfast and we could not have...

The only buildings I've been in that were cleaner than this inn had surgeons working in them. After a while I made it a game to find a spot or a speck of dust. I failed. When I wasn't doing that I was relaxing on the porch or out back or enjoying a visit with Sylvia and Ernie. She must...

Beautiful old house, without question the best breakfast in town - very comfortable, indeed, set in a lovely, leafy suburb. You wouldn't say that Urbana-Champaign is a thriving tourist attraction, but here is certainly one of its best features. I've stayed twice and hope to again. Love it!
