What a fantastic location for our retreat. The Goldmoor Inn is away from the hustle and bustle of the city, which was great for our retreat. The suites were immaculately decorated and oh so comfortable with a king size bed, fireplace, and hot tub in each one. I loved that each room's decor was connected to a theme. The owners...

The rooms were quite outdated and our particular room smelled like smoke. Breakfast was not what I would consider to be gourmet. There were no special touches to make us feel welcome. The grounds were pretty and well maintained.

The Goldmoor's rooms in person are just as adorable and comfortable as advertised on the website, and the grounds are serene and beautiful. We were very disappointed with the quality of breakfast. I know a mass produced muffin or waffle when I see/taste one, and had a hard time believing that the baked goods that comprised most of breakfast during...

What a great place to stay. Just a 6 mile ride to Galena and definitely worth it. Wonderful owners, great breakfasts (free with our stay). The turret (our room) was awesome- fit for royalty! Looking forward to going there again.................soon!

Spent the weekend for our anniversary and it was the perfect location. Thoroughly enjoyed our space in the chef's quarters and dining at the restaurant each evening was a pleasure. Great relations with hotel staff and a nice attention to detail. Dont even question whether it's worth the money to stay here, definitely money well spent

After a crazy busy fall, we decided to find a quiet place for the two of us to hideaway for a few days. One of our favorite places to visit is Galena and we have found a new favorite place to stay when there. We chose the English Country Cottage for its advertised privacy, appointments, and views. We were not...

The Goldmoor Inn is a wonderful place to stay in northwest Illinois. Somewhat midway between a B&B and a hotel, it has attractive, clean and comfortable suites each decorated in a different style. A somewhat upscale restaurant is also on sight. Breakfast (included in the price) is available in the restaurant or delivered to your room. Our suite included a...

Where do I start: We booked the most expensive room $380 without tax at this hotel Mississippi Suite on the Saturday night. The hotel looks nice from the outside. And we enjoyed bike ride. That all is good there. The overview was nice on their web page, but it was a complete disaster in person. Our room looked like my...

My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a delightful 3 night escape at the Goldmoor Inn. It is a charming B & B, that is just the right size for weddings, corporate retreats or family reunions. The setting is spectacular, surrounded by woods overlooking the Mississippi river, serene and inspirational. The staff treated us like honored guests staying...

Unfortunately we were obligated to come home, otherwise could have lingered at the Goldmoor Inn another few days! We arrived October 28, 2016 for 2 nights and had booked the Lancelot Suite. Out the front window was a view of the fountain and the Mississippi, and out the back, woods and cabins. Private Jacuzzi area, fireplace that truly puts out...
