I have stayed at The Goldmoor in twice, and each stay has left me wanting to come back for more. Read my review and learn why.
The Goldmoor Inn, with its grand castle-like structure, sits high atop a secluded bluff overlooking the Mississippi River 10 minutes south of downtown Galena, IL. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with well- manicured flower gardens scattered around the main inn. There are several sitting areas for guests to relax and enjoy the view. Upon entering the main inn, guests are greeted by a friendly receptionist that settles the details and paper work. A note to guests, if using a gift certificate, be sure to present it at check-in as it will not otherwise be accepted towards payment. The reception desk is always staffed, ready to help answer any questions.
There are 18 pleasantly decorated guest suites that are divided between the main inn, 3 cottages and 3 cabins. Guests are welcomed into their suite with soft romantic music playing and fresh-baked cookies waiting in the stocked kitchenette. Each warm and inviting suite lures with a king sized bed, fireplace, double whirlpool, sitting area, TV with digital satellite and movie channels, plush robes and towel warmers. In the morning, guests may choose to enjoy a scrumptious gourmet prepared breakfast consisting of fruit and a tantalizing main dish either in the on-site restaurant or in the privacy of their suite. The restaurant on-site is also open to guests and the public for dinner each night; check the website as there are often special events and promotions for dining.
The Goldmoor Inn also provides bikes for guests to borrow and explore the surrounding area.
Some guests may find a stay at the Goldmoor Inn to be similar to an upscale hotel experience rather than an intimate bed and breakfast. Guests should be prepared to pay $300 a night to stay in this bed and breakfast; although upon completion of their stay, guests receive a card worth 20% off a future visit.
The Goldmoor Inn is a member of Select Registry as well as a Diamond member of BedandBreakfast.com.
