We enjoyed our two day stay at Abbey's. Tom was very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully served in a lovely Victorian style. The home and English gardens were stylist and a great place to relax and enjoy a bottle of our favorite wine. Thanks to Kathy for your decorating and Tom for you hospitality to make... More

The house was a very nice place to stay. It has been restored to to the correct period. We had a really nice visit with Tom, the owner. He told us a lot about the history of the house and how he rebuilt it so he could turn it into a Bed and Breakfast Inn. The breakfast was really delicious!.

The breakfast was great Everytime. The cinnamon rolls are to die for. We got married there this past weekend and were able to use the... More

I've stayed at this B&B 5 times for a reason-- everything here is fabulous. I've been in 4 of the rooms and they were all lovely. The breakfasts have always been delicious. The grounds are perfect, and we've had several fires in the fire pit on cooler evenings, which owner Tom had all set up for us. He and his... More

My husband made a reservation for our 45th anniversary weekend at Abbey's based on the wonderful reviews. In the interest of getting to the point, we found the first night very unsatisfactory. The bed groaned every time one of us moved. It was a cold night and every time the heat came on it roared and blew directly in my... More

Two friends and I spent last weekend in Galena. We stayed in the carriage house at this wonderful inn. It was quiet and the room was delightful only missing having a coffee maker so I could have my caffeine a little earlier than 8am. The gardens were lovely. Pictures don't do it justice. You can view the city from the... More

We came into town on short notice and looked for a B&B at the last minute. We called Abbey's and Tom was very kind, gracious and accommodating even on such short notice. We arrived about a half hour after we called and he had the room and welcome all ready to go. He was very friendly and warm the entire... More

Tom was very accommodating at the last minute. Our original plan did not work out and he came to the rescue. Great service,hospitality,food and experience. The home is in a great location for views of the town and accessibility to downtown without having to drive. Have entertained the thought of having my own B&B in Galena and this is exactly... More

This B & B is clean, comforting and inviting and the breakfasts were awesome...I would recommend it to everyone. The view is beautiful from the front porch and easy access to downtown, on foot or by car. Will definitely be going back. The host (Tom) was fun, not hovering and gives you space but there if you need him. The... More

Like we always say in the health care industry, it is not technology that drives excellence but people. The same thing can be said of the service industry. My story is about an establishment called the Abbey's High Street Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL. My story begins with me booking a weekend night with Tom. Based on the reviews... More

Long story from a couple who are putting down a wonderful place they NEVER stayed at and recommending NOT coming to a fantastic town they NEVER visited. We here at Abbey's will continue to do our best to ensure the guest that are welcome here are happy, content and safe from those few irrational, unreasonable and negative people. I guess... More
