It was a very relaxing and quiet place to get away to over looking the Mississippi river. It is about 10 to 15 minutes from downtown Galena. The breakfast was very good and they will deliver it to your room if you don't want to eat in the dining room. It is a very beautiful place.

Everything was perfect at the Goldmoor. We stayed in the Mississippi suite, upstairs, with a view of the river area. The suite was huge, with a comfortable king sized bed, a sitting area, and a jacuzzi tub, with its own view to the out of doors. We could sit outside on the screened in porch, and feel the night air,... More

My wife found this place for our 15th Anniversary. I was skeptical because of the cost. It was worth every penny. The room was perfect. The food was perfect. Great place to get away and decompress. The owners are friendly and hospitable without being overbearing. Highly Recommend.

From the moment we arrived until the time we had to go back home our stay at Goldmoor Inn was superb! Hospitality is the key ingredient, but is backed by a wonderful building placed in a dreamy country setting. The quality of food served is just a big bonus and attentiveness to the dietary needs of the guests is much... More

We stayed in the English Cottage and couldn't have been more impressed! We rode our motorcycle there and the front desk receptionist right away offered for us to park our bike under the pavilion, as rain was coming in. The screen porch gave us an incredible view of watching the storm roll in. We had massages in the spa, and... More

My husband and I began searching for a Galena Wedding venue in February 2015 for an April 2016 wedding. Anyone who has planned a wedding knows the earlier you set your venue, the better for budgeting. We fell in love with the pictures of the inn online, and the prices for weddings seemed to be reasonable. We put almost $1000... More

The Goldmoor Inn is the top country Inn in the entire Midwest. We have visited many inns both in the Midwest and in New England and Goldmoor is on top. We give it five stars and will go there again...and again... and again!
