“Great Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Went to the Goldmoor Inn for the fourth time. It is a great getaway not too far from Chicago. The Inn has great amenities and is very clean. Breakfast is great! This seems to be our place to get away once a year so I am sure we will be back.

My husband and I have stayed here probably about 5 times. We love the property and the rooms. The furnishings are beautiful, the beds are very comfortable, and the rooms feel luxurious. The breakfast is wonderful, and Galena is a great place to visit for a fun, romantic getaway. Just a few minor complaints that we have: the wi-fi was not great, DVD players were removed from the rooms (we love bringing our own movies), and some of the alarm clocks are ancient. Overall, it's still worth 5 stars in our opinion. They offer a 20% returning guest discount as well, so keep that in mind for the future. It's a great benefit! If you are thinking about heading to Galena, you will be so glad you chose the Goldmoor!

Spent two days here celebrating our birthdays. Our suite had a river view although the entire landscaped grounds are fantastic. We stayed on a Tuesday and Wednesday so we were unable to try the dinners, but the breakfasts were great! Of course we strongly recommend the Goldmore.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

We have been to Goldmoor twice and each time has been wonderful! The suites and breakfasts are amazing! The staff was helpful and eager to make our stay enjoyable. We definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to visit Galena. What a great place! We look forward to our next visit.

I have been to the Goldmoore in several times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are each individually decorated, beautiful and romantic. The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Of particular note is the young man, Kyle, who greeted us and manned the front desk. He was very friendly and helpful to us.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway to a wonderful B&B with a cute little tourist town near by, you will be delighted with your stay at the Goldmoore Inn.
