Cloran Mansion Earns TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Again!

June 27, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Cloran Mansion Certificate Excellence 2014We’re very proud to have, once again, won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence!

TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, awards these certificates annually but only to the top 10 percent of businesses that receive a high volume of consistently outstanding reviews from their customers through the TripAdvisor site.

We work very hard to make sure our guests leave with their expectations not just met but exceeded – but we couldn’t have won this honor if it hadn’t been for you, our guests, taking the time to leave reviews on TripAdvisor’s site like the following:

I can not tell you how amazing The Cloran is! My fiance and I wanted a very small wedding … Cheryl helped arrange everything from the flowers, to the cake, to making sure we had extra Coke on hand for my hubby. Our family was so impressed with the location, and the day was perfect. … The food is excellent, the hosts are down to earth and accommodating, and the house is simply amazing. Can’t wait to book our anniversary weekend!

Save your time & energy looking for THE place to just more than stay while in Galena! … You arrive as an acquaintance and leave as if you are a dear, chosen friend.

Carmine and Cheryl served us absolutely wonderful breakfasts and Carmine offered many helpful tips on places to see and visit during the three days and four night visit. We will not hesitate to stay here again if the opportunity arises!

… we were thrilled to spend our 25th wedding anniversary with Carmine and Cheryl at the Cloran Mansion. Carmine and Cheryl helped my husband plan every single detail … we did not plan for problems with our vehicle … Carmine drove my husband to the parts store in Iowa … then they took the time to call us to make sure we arrived home without any trouble… we call Cloran Mansion our home away from home.

This is just a sampling from the first page of reviews for Cloran Mansion Bed and Breakfast on the TripAdvisor site – we could go on but we’re blushing!

Come stay at the Cloran Mansion Bed and Breakfast the next time you’re in the Galena, IL area and see why we earned TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for 2014.

Galena Wine ToursA couple of months back we discussed some of the area wineries that you can visit but did you know you can book Galena wine tours and leave the driving to someone else?

Iowa Wine Tours, Inc. offers daily tours of wineries, breweries, pubs, and distilleries in and around the Galena and Dubuque area. With professional, knowledgeable drivers who will pick you up right from the B&B, all you have to do is sit back and relax. They even provide bottled water in the vehicle and lunch is included as part of the tour!
