Property's Favourite Review
This property is wonderful and a must-visit for anyone in Illinois. We had the best stay, and the staff was polite and friendly. The food was delicious and the ambiance was spectacular. Several reviews say it's very romantic- and yes, it is, but this is also a great spot for families or friends to come visit. There is something for everyone here.

We've been there many times, and it is always a special experience. One of the good things about coming back is they have a loyalty program if you come back. Food and service is always great, and the premises are beautiful.

The Goldmoor Inn - where to begin. Starting with the title of my review, the cookies! The day we checked out of the hotel, we sure missed the delicious home baked cookies we received daily. That’s just the tip of an incredible stay. Each morning we awoke to a gourmet breakfast delivers to the room. Such an amazing treat!! We stayed in the Veranda Suite which had a panoramic view of the Mississippi River like no other! Comfortable beds with luxurious bedding!! We had dinner in the restaurant which was to die for. Truly the best ahi tuna we ever had! The grounds of the hotel are incredibly gorgeous and well manicured. Such a treat to walk the property and enjoy the scenery. Most of all, the staff at Goldmoor are incredible! Very friendly, efficient and very responsive to anything you may need! Visiting Galena and the Goldmoor was a lifetime experience and one we will never forget. We will definitely return to the Goldmoor for another visit and chance to be pampered in luxury!!

I took my wife to the Goldmoor B&B on Mother's day. We stayed in Lancelot's room # 14. A luxurious room with plenty of space for me and my wife. The accommodations were impeccable and every single detail matches those of a 5-star resort. The view of the Mississippi River at sunset is breathtaking. And we were only 20 minutes away from downtown Galena. Moreover, there are plenty of easy and moderate hiking trails nearby which made our trip even better. The hotel restaurant is likely one of the best in the Galena region. My final comment: although they did serve breakfast in bed, I was expecting something a bit more nutritious. I am always hungry and need my protein (i.e. eggs, sausage) in the morning. The gourmet breakfast (only choice available) did not meet my appetite (see photo). Not ideal for a hungry man like myself.
