We were recently married at the Goldmoor Inn, and while the location and food was amazing, the service was certainly not up to par with the prices. My husband and I had a small wedding in June with about 25 people, and were looking to have a wedding that was very laid back, relaxed, and low key. One of the... More

My wife and I went to Goldmoor for our 45th anniversary dinner and we were very disappointed. The Inn is very nice and has a class feel about it but the food was not up to the same level. We had expected a memorable meal and we did get one, a bad memory. The appetizer was very good (lamb lollipops)... More

My husband and I recently got married at the Goldmoor. There were so many wonderful aspects about the Goldmoor, but there were also some quirks. First the good: -We had a wedding of 25-30 people in May, which was the perfect amount of people for us for the venue. The property is GORGEOUS and Patricia (the inn keeper) puts an... More

I must say, your wedding was absolutely beautiful and choice in music was out of this world! Vitamin String Quartet can do amazing things with classic songs! I do, once again, apologize for the miscommunications. We are working on making the wedding planning process more efficient. The two of you (and your wedding party) looked absolutely stunning. Congratulations! More

We went on a "girls week-end outing" to Galena and dining in the climate control gazebo was definitely a highlight! The food was great and the view was fantastic!!!! We love to talk and laugh a lot and tend to get too loud after a couple of drinks so this was the perfect place for us. Gerald our waiter was... More

My husband and I so much enjoyed our visit to the Goldmoor. We've been there 3 times and couldn't ask for a better get-away. Patricia and her staff treated us with exceptional kindness and thoughtfulness. We LOVE the Goldmoor Inn. It is a classy, first-rate, gorgeously decorated Inn. Thank you, Goldmoor Inn, for a wonderful time!

Patricia takes pride in the old world decor style of our B&B as she has invested lots of her time picking out each and every item at the Goldmoor, she's elated that you appreciate the decor as much as...

Just a great time with a wonderful dinner and fantastic breakfasts. Enjoyed the day shopping and travelling the countryside. It truly is a special place to spend some time away. Bring a book or just sit and watch the train pass going up and down the river. Great views!

The Goldmoor is tucked back in the county and offers a feeling of seclusion while being close to Galena. I stayed in one the guest cabins, which was a cute 1-bedroom free-standing cabin with a kitchenette and living room area. It was similar to having a vacation home rental, but with the services of a hotel. It also had great... More

We booked the Goldmoor Inn last minute because other places we were looking at were completely booked. I was a bit nervous after reading the only recent review that made it sound like the place had completely fallen apart since the property is for sale. The Goldmoor Inn far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the English Country Cottage and... More

This place is so romantic. Each room is so unique and the staff is super friendly. My husband and I went here to celebrate our 7 year anniversary. We stood in one of the cottages. We have stayed here twice and both times were truly memorable.

My husband and I have been staying here each year for 4 years. We will not be going back. Since the death of the co-inn keeper, Patricia has really cut back. The room was not cleaned as it normally would have been, I actually wrote "Dust Me" in the layer of dust on the headboard. The ceiling fan was not... More
