My wife and I stayed 1 night at the Goldmoor, and could not find any complaint. We had a beautiful fall day, so the secluded inn was perfect to take in the sunset, walk around the area and see fox, deer, horses, and other wildlife in the area. It is also a short drive to Chestnut Mountain where we had a great nature walk and lunch. We were even pleasantly surprised to find free electric car chargers Dinner at the Goldmoor was big city restaurant quality and everything was top notch. The room was very large, clean and quiet. A very good breakfast was delivered to our door exactly when promised. I would highly recommend if you want a quiet getaway and are ok being in a secluded area, although a short drive from Galena.

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.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway to Galena, IL and it was great! Clean spacious rooms, and breakfast brought to your room every morning. Esme at the front desk was a sweetheart, Jacqueline and Brea in the restaurant were wonderful, and made some fantastic drinks, and Latisha, Dulce and Melody kept our room spotless. I highly recommend The Goldmoor Inn!

We decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in Galena and stayed at the Goldmoor. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was beyond friendly and attentive. We stayed in the Lancelot room and while the views were mainly of the parking lots, it was still a great space. Lots of windows, spacious, comfy and clean! The gourmet breakfast was absolutely delicious. We also ate dinner here as well which was also really great! We definitely hope to be back in the future.

Lovely setting and views made for a peaceful getaway. Staff was attentive and kind. Food was very good. Room was huge and we were happy to stay in and relax on a rainy day without feeling cooped up. Short drive in to the town without being in the hustle of tourists.
