“Beautiful inn. Outstanding customer service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

This was a girls' weekend get away for four of us. We spent two nights at the Mimslyn and had a fabulous time! Our group of four gets away like this 3 - 4 times a year. We have had a variety of experiences on these trips over the years, most of them great, but none better than what we experienced at Mimslyn. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating (and we did ask for quite a bit). Our room was very nice and the hotel restaurant and spa were great. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful and the Sunday Brunch was amazing! Thanks Mimslyn for contributing to our weekend in such a positive way!

This hotel is absolutely fantastic. The rooms are huge, the price is very reasonable. Everything was so comfortable. I had only one complaint: the room was advertised as having a fireplace, but it turned out it was a fake (and cheap) "fireplace" with just a hot air vent on it. We were really disappointed by that aspect. Had we not been misled to believe it was a real fireplace, it would have been fine.

I was stunned by how nice the Mimslyn Inn was. The lobby/lounge area is beautiful and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. And, the Inn is situated close to the Luray Caverns and the Thornton Gap entrance to Shenandoah National Park.

Our room would have been rated 5 stars in New York or Chicago.

We will definately stay there again!

My friend and I stayed at the Mimslyn Inn on February 26, 2011 along with another couple for a Winemaker’s dinner and room package. Everything was just perfect – the food, service, room and atmosphere. We all really enjoyed ourselves and want to go back again very soon. The hotel staff was very accommodating and made us feel like valued customers. The dinner was excellent as was the wine. This was the first time I have been to a dinner of this type and it exceeded my expectations. Our rooms were very nice and the hotel was clear and well taken care of. I highly recommend the Mimslyn Inn to anyone who wants to visit a very beautiful area of Virginia and to do so in style.

The Mimslyn Inn is a wonderful place to stay. This was our second stay and certainly not the last. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The rates are reasonable and the staff always pleasant and helpful.

My wife and I stayed at Mimslyn Inn over a short trip. The hotel is 5 min from Luray Caverns and 10 min from the Shenandoah mountain.

We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent condition of this historic hotel. Everything appears to have been recently renovated. The hotel has the charming architecture of the period, but with modern amenities in the rooms. We stayed in the Skyline suite which was very nice. It was a large room by historical standards. This suite had a large bathroom with jacuzzi. My wife thought the bed was a little bit on the hard.

We ate several meals at the Circa 31 formal restaurant as well as the Speakeasy informal dinning. Service staffs were excellent and very attentive. Food was good as well. There isn't many restaurants in Luray. We were glad the hotel had decent food.

The outdoor pool was closed for the winter. But the hot tub is operational. There is a tiny gym in the basement. We walked around the garden behind the hotel. I could imaging the garden to be a nice place to hold a wedding during the warmer periods.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. We just made reservations at the hotel for a future hiking trip to the Shenandoah.
