Loved this place! The attention to detail in the rooms is staggering and I actually felt I was lodging with Victorians, such was the authenticity of the furnishings, decor etc.
Besides the aesthetics our room was spotless, the bed was comfy and there were plenty of useful toiletries placed in our room, right down to disposable razors and safety pins, amongst other things.
Breakfast was incredible and consisted of sausages, scrambled egg, French toast, fruit, coffee... We were stuffed but it was so good we just wanted to keep shovelling it in. Nicole the owner is delightful with a great sense of humour and generosity of spirit. We ended up delaying our departure by nearly 2hrs as we were enjoying the conversation and hadn't had chance to speak to her the night before when we arrived. This place is great value and an easy walk to the main downtown area.
We really liked Sioux Falls as a whole, it had a great downtown area with a good mix of shops - make sure you see the actual falls and pay a visit to the Phillips Diner before you go - they do a good variety of delicious food.
