Sylvia's was a fantastic place to stay while attending my daughter's graduation. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed delightful breakfasts every morning. Sylvia even offered to accommodate my family by cooking us an extra special brunch on Mother's Day. It was a special experience!! We stayed in the carriage house which was spacious and comfortable. The back patio was a...

Oh! What a delightful gem of Urbana, IL. Our family LOVED every minute at Sylvia's Irish Inn... its many indoor and outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the relaxing surroundings. Sylvia & Ernie are warm and welcoming hosts. And don't even get me started on Syvia's delicious breakfast. So yum!

The proprietors (Sylvia and Ernie) were super accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. The property itself is gorgeous, the food Sylvia made for us each morning was delicious. The wi-fi worked well, beds were comfortable. The inn is located near downtown, super convenient for our trip to Urbana! Thanks guys!

This lady runs a business as one should be if they are in the hospitality business. Asked me about special diets, handicaps and preferences. Promised me a hot breakfast and that I could invite my cousin (for an additional fee) if I wanted to have them there as my guest for breakfast.

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...

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...
