We booked a getaway weekend in this hotel and were pleased, overall. We felt that the hotel billed itself as a luxury, boutique hotel, but that it was fairly average. The service was good, our room was clean, the bathroom was standard, and so on, but the hotel was no better than a good Comfort Inn. We liked the library...

This is not your regular hotel. To us it is more upscale for a fair price. The bed we had was so comfortable, our room exceeded our expectation. Super clean...all around the hotel. We had the valley view which is what we needed. There is a small kidney shaped pool with hot tub. Great after walking all day. And try...

Right on U.S. 20 2 minutes east of downtown Galena you'll find a delightful hotel and pub that will take you away to another place. Entering the lobby is like stepping into Ireland, very warm woodwork, library room, Irish posters immediately immerse you into the warmth of an Irish stay. We stayed there two nights over St. Patrick's Day and...

The hotel is about 1 mile from Main Street Galena. It has a beautiful lobby and library. We stayed in a regular king room. The room itself was slightly above average, but the hotel atmosphere, breakfast and attached pub make this an excellent choice. We had a continental breakfast on Friday with freshly bake scones. On Saturday, we had a...

We were so tired from work. Took off for Galena, Illinois. Beautiful hotel. Excellent food. Irish music in the hotel restaurant. Gift shop there as well. Many shops in town. Beautiful buildings. We were there during the Badger Basketball final four!! Lots of Wisconsin fans!

We had a fabulous stay here! My family visited for my sister's 30th birthday weekend and we could not have picked a better place. Great cozy ambience and more of an "experience" then just a hotel. The staff were wonderful in helping me ahead of time to put a bottle of wine in our room and to set up my...

Stayed here on a weekend getaway from Chicago. Had a basic king room on the 2nd floor with a lovely parking lot view. Didn't expect much with the rack room rate, but decently sized room and very clean. The real winner was the hot breakfast included in the price of room. I read so many reviews about scones that it...

My fiance and I stayed here in March 2015. Great food, drinks, and live entertainment in the adjoined restaurant. Excellent service thanks to our waitress Tammy. The room was clean and comfortable. The included breakfast was delicious. A great getaway that was reasonably priced.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this exceptional hotel on 2/28/2015. I have visited Ireland, and lived in England. My family lives in Mayo county, and luckily, I was able to book a room with that theme. Each room has distinct paintings from Roisin O'Shea, reflecting each of Ireland's county landscapes. With that experience in mind, I should say that...
