We stayed here due to purchasing a travel package for a night's stay, plus tickets to explore Luray Caverns. Well worth the money we spent. There is a fancy restaurant on site that appeared lovely, however, we chose the more casual reastaurant that was also on site to dine in. We enjoyed a live band, good food, abd ghe homemade... More

We stayed 1 night at this hotel after visiting the very nearby Luray Caverns. It is a beautiful property, well maintained and very peaceful. We had room 222 which was spacious and bright, overlooking the pristine pool. We enjoyed dinner in the Speakeasy Pub, with live music and half priced wine on Friday evenings. We would definitely return.

We stayed at the Mimslyn Inn for two nights in July. We decided to try one of the cottages - The Hawksbill. It was a wonderful room with a kitchen and a huge bathroom. There were a couple little glitches but they were all handled very quickly and were resolved to our satisfaction. They even had a charging station for... More

I found a groupon for this hotel and thought it may be a fun trip to drive down, go to Luray Caverns, and then stay at this hotel. I read the reviews to make sure that we weren't in for a very unpleasant experience, and as there was nothing that stood out as bad, I figured why not give it... More

Staff at all levels and in all capacities were exceedingly friendly, attentive, and competent. You won't find better people anywhere. Sunday brunch is a GREAT value at just $16.95. We spent our first night in the smallest of the cottages. It was OK, but a little cramped for two people. Furnishings and general ambiance were OK, but for the price,... More

Lovely suite, very accommodating staff. We couldn't believe that the nice Sunday champagne brunch was only $16.95! The inn is less than a mile from Luray Caverns, the big tourist attraction. If you go, go in the morning to avoid the worst of the crowds.

Did a winery weekend with my wife and was stunned at what area B&B's are charging. Stayed here Saturday night. Didn't realize Luray has ZERO charm which worked out great, we had a wonderful dinner on the front porch with a view and hit the hot tub after. Property is in great shape, is well appointed and is well run,... More

Stayed one night. Luray , VA is a struggling area like many in rural Virginia. It's something of an oasis in a very rural area but the downtown has as many vacant store fronts as occupied.the staff are eager to please and very engaging. Rooms are clean and fairly appointed, although the bath was very dimly lit. Air conditioning worked... More
