I recently tied the knot and we wanted to stay in Illinois. We booked our honeymoon at the Goldmoor Inn located in Galena, IL. We were not sure what to expect since it was our first time visiting. The hospitality and attentiveness of the people working at the Goldmoor Inn was exceptional. We are beyond satisfied with our stay during... More

The Goldmoor Inn was amazing! Beautiful peaceful setting just outside of Galena proper up in the hills with a view of the Mississippi River. My husband surprised me with this weekend get away (labor day weekend) and he couldn't have picked a better place for us to relax and enjoy the area. the Inn Owners were great and personable, the...

The property is very nicely kept and the room was spacious. I would recommend this staying here if you have a chance. Only minor complaint is stay away from ordering scrambled eggs as part of your breakfast-very dry and tasteless even though asked for soft. I always think it strange how so many "Chef's" cannot make eggs....LOL.

Incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. Great rooms - we stayed in the Irish Cottage and it terrific. Restaurant for dinner is not to be missed. We came the first time on our own but this time with another couple. Everyone enjoyed!

We have never been on any trips since we have been married. Kids, work, life in general. We stayed in the Covington Suite. The view is gorgeous over the Mississippi and the sunsets amazing.

We stayed here for two nights. The room was large and comfortable. It was nice to have a working gas fireplace and hot tub in the room. Separate little kitchen area was perfect for breakfast, which we had brought to our room both days. Every aspect of it was very nice. Normally we go to old, restored B&Bs, but this... More

Our stay at the Goldmoor Inn exceeded all my expectations. The innkeepers were very friendly and would go above and behind to make sure their guests are comfortable and have everything they need. The food served for breakfast and dinner in the restaurant was some of the best food I have eating in a long time. We will certainly make... More

Having enjoyed dining and visiting this special site for years, a recent visit demonstrated that a new owner with creative ideas can improve on even the the best. The hotel facility is maintained to perfection. The dining space is open and warm. The food elections carefully and intelligently made, and the food preparation is the best in Jo Daviess County.

Our stay at the Goldmoor Inn was one of the most enjoyable we have had. The Goldmoor has many of the amenities we would expect at a hotel, but had the intimacy and exclusivity of a B&B. “Retreat” is an appropriate label as things were very quiet and relaxing. We chose the Chef’s Quarters and would certainly choose again. Private... More

My wife and I just spent Labor Day weekend in Galena at the Goldmoor Inn. We had an amazing time there! The owners are very warm and accommodating. They are also informative when it comes to things to do. The property is beautiful and a quick, scenic drive to/from the downtown area. We would highly recommend the Goldmoor to couples... More
