I cannot praise the staff at the Mimslyn Inn enough. I had all of my girlfriends up for a nice relaxing weekend and they catered to our every need. Everyone was extremely friendly and did whatever they could for us. We relaxed by the pool, enjoyed an amazing dinner in the Speakeasy and enjoyed the view from the front porch!... More

The Mimslyn Inn did not meet my expectations but that is mostly because I had set them too high. I was expecting grand luxury but felt as though I received more of a bed and breakfast type of accommodation. I felt that it was average.

Very accommodating from the time we checked in until the time we left. The entire staff was very friendly and willing to assist you at all times. The rooms were comfortable and clean.

Nice, picturesque inn. Stayed over a Saturday night because we were doing wine tours and the caverns in the area. Comfortable room (we had the basic one, another couple had the King size bed, and the third took a suite). Dining room was excellent but make sure you reserve in advance because they short staff if there aren't enough reservations.... More

Had a great experience at this historic inn! Not only was everything clean, staff very friendly and helpful, food delicious (full course meal at 31), it provided great views, outdoor dining, comfortable rooms, and was a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this inn to anyone visiting in the Luray area! It felt like we were in another era!

Took advantage of current groupon for this place and very happy we did. The entire inn is charming including the front porch , lobby, speakeasy,etc. We were in a historic corner rm which was quiet, small but adequate. Bed was comfortable, br was tiny but modern and had good shower pressure. We would stay here again! Close to Shenandoah park... More
