Our stay in Luray was a very pleasant one. The hotel has gone under renovations in the last couple of years, and it shows. All of staff was very courteous and went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable. The restaurant is very good as well. Set on the front porch and enjoy the views of the... More

My wife and I did the new years weekend here and were blown away. We were also the youngest people there by about 30 years (being in our early 20's). The service was incredible. we joked around that there were little elves that went and cleaned when you weren't looking. The rooms stayed clean and we never saw the cleaners!... More

We have stayed at the Mimslyn Inn twice during visits to the Luray Caverns /Northern Shenandoah area. It's very charming, with a lovely patio and gardens and grounds are well kept. There are a lot of comfortable furnishings and quiet places to hang out. The room was comfortable, especially the beds, and the location is quiet. The food was quite... More

Very nice inn where you can see was updated, especially in the lobby area. Room was clean and double bed was enough for my husband and I. They said they could only heat either the pool or hot tub so everyone there voted hot tub. The grounds were well kept. There were parts of the inn that were slightly dated... More

We booked this as a "TESLA destination charger" location close to James Madison University. Since this was a celebration of graduation for a son and Mother's day combined we did some travelling by day and recharging both body and car in the evening finishing with one of the best brunches we have ever had! The service was down-home friendly, and... More

Only reason I gave if very good instead of excellent was there was some wear shown in the furniture and hall and I'd of like to have seen more amenities. It's a very charming place. It's got pretty grounds! I loved walking and driving up the drive because they had a lovely tree which was turning colors and it was... More

This is a wonderful and comfortable hotel off the beaten path that offers easy access to Virginia's natural beauty complimented by a gracious and friendly staff. We chose to stay here as it is the same price or less than hotels in Front Royal but offered a much more personal touch. The breakfast was delicious downstairs the next morning at... More

My husband and I made a last minute decision to get out of town, and called the Mimslyn Inn which had availability. Our room was small, but comfortable with a very nicely redone bathroom. On Saturday morning we headed down to breakfast, only to be told that breakfast wasn't included in the stay, despite us reading that on the website... More

My husband and I live in the northeast (although I'm from the south originally) so we usually head north to Vermont for our hiking weekends. We decided in mid April to head for the hills but since we were still on the cusp of spring we headed south instead of north. We'd never been to Shenandoah National Park so weren't... More

When you can go to the Mimslyn? I have, over more years than I care to remember, enjoyed the hospilitality of all three, on multiple occasions. My preference is the Mimslyn.
