The Riverview Mansion and Levee Lounge are a charming place for a retreat from the bustle of urban life. My wife and I stayed here for three nights over President's Day weekend, and we enjoyed being able to get home-cooked meals and an excellent choice of wine and beer, not to mention interaction with the friendly owners and staff of...

Our stay at the mansion was great. It felt like we were staying at a friend's instead of a hotel and we're very welcomed by the owners. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we loved the vibe and decorations from the hotel. We stayed here while hiking the Shawnee National Forest. I'm sure we'll be back at the mansion again.

This is a very cool place to stay. We met 2 other couples there and had a great time. The decor was so cool. We all hung out in The Levee Lounge all night. It was so much fun. The room was clean and comfortable.

I had an absolutely fantastic stay at this hotel. First and foremost, the hospitality by the staff was outstanding. It truly felt like home away from home. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the amenities were excellent. The food was quite good: in particular the pizza I shared with my friends. The lounge was superb and the choice of...

We stayed here for a weekend getaway to get some quiet and relaxation after renting a pontoon boat all day at the Golconda Marina. Our room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. Host was very helpful and friendly! We stayed in the Tex room in the main floor. I would highly recommend this to any couple!!! A few short...

What a fun little getaway to celebrate my husband's retirement & see the beautiful sights in southern Illinois, all within a short driving distance. As its name states, the old Victorian mansion has beautiful views of the Ohio River in the little town of Golconda. We were the only ones staying in the mansion at the time of our visit,...

We stopped at the hotel for lunch and had a really nice experience. The hotel itself is full of visual wonder- every inch is decorated and fun to explore. There are no 'fountain' options for drinks, but limitless wines, bar selections, and a small selection of soft drink bottles (with a glass of ice) of your choosing. We had the...

I had been looking for a venue to have a family and friends gathering to celebrate the life of my husband. I needed a cosy and comfortable place to eat, have a drink or two and then stay overnight. As soon as I walked into the Levee Lounge, I knew this was the place! Beth and Tony couldn't have been...

Went to hotel to reserve a room two months in advance and no one was there, only a sign with a number to call. Made several attempts to call number given, only to hear a generic voicemail. Received a call several days later and asked how many nights we needed. Told them one night and the individual said we will...

My apologies that you were dissatisfied. But really. What sort of a negative person leaves a bad rating just because the hotel was not able to accommodate you? You inquired. We replied. You were called back and asked for more info on your reservation and told should we have an availability, we would certainly let you know. Unfortunately we were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Riverview Mansion Hotel of Golconda is a full service boutique hotel. WE ARE NOT YOUR TYPICAL B&B - We are more eclectic, organic and much cooler and funky than the others. With an in bar hotel and a wine shop that will blow your mind. In addition to the finest Victorian style accommodations available in Southern Illinois, there is also a lounge serving the best selection of local wines and beers, as well as a restaurant. The hotel is open year round with advance reservations encouraged. All major credit cards accepted. The best Victorian suites available in the Shawnee! A funky boutique style mansion (don't worry, there's no plastic flowers or fragile antiques), but plenty of private nooks and crannys to read a book and share a bottle of wine. The Riverview Mansion Hotel in Golconda has been the center of hospitality for a century. Also find the largest wine shop in Southern Illinois featuring the best of regional wines and beyond. The hotel bar, the Levee Lounge is a lively venue on weekends and during festivals. Bistro style sustenance available, i.E. Pizzas and artisan tapas, cheese and meat plates. History: Established in 1926 Built in 1894 as the private mansion for riverboat captain, John Gilbert, today's "Mansion" remains the jewel of Golconda's historic "silk-stocking row." In the mid-1920's, the Mansion was converted to the local hotel it is today. Boasting some of the finest craftsmanship available a century ago, the Mansion's millwork still awes visitors today. The six fabulous fireplace mantels are centerpieces of an architectural excellence seen only in the palaces of Europe. An exotic gingerbread arch hangs overhead at the entrance which lore says was removed from Gilbert's riverboat. Come with an open mind and open heart and you will be sure to have a good time and leave as friends! See you soon. ... more   less
