We were immediately impressed by the property as we drove up to it. The room was very spacious and the beds comfortable. You can even purchase the mattress if you like it. We loved the bar/restaurant in the basement which had a casual dinner environment. The food was pretty decent and the live music was good. We had a buffet... More

I was expecting a lot more based on the reviews of this hotel. The room was small and musky. The mattress was uncomfortable and the furniture was dusty. The TV was almost impossible to view from the bed as it was on the left side of the bed in a tall stand with doors that didn't fully open. The bathroom... More

From the warm, friendly service to the clean, comfortable and well-appointed cottage, Mimslyn Inn did not disappoint! Our Jewell Hollow Cottage stay exceeded expectations. My early morning runs began with a wonderful glimpse of the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond the town of Luray the moment I stepped out of the cottage. While we enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast, my 10-year-old... More

First impression is this hotel is out of our league. From the driveway approach to the front porch to the extremely professional friendly and accommodating staff. Always a smile and willingness to assist, no matter where you are on the property. This one you need to see! Pictures, although incredible don't do this building justice. Close to Caverns and National... More

I enjoyed my stay. Some minor repairs are needed. However, overall a very nice visit.the staff was great. The food was great. The room was a little small but quaint. Doors needed some attention. Chairs on rooftop patio needed repair.

I loved this inn! Booked the Panorama cottage for my family of four- children are 3 and 6. Very updated cottage with front sitting room, kitchenette, large bedroom and luxury bathroom including whirlpool jetted tub. The cottage includes Netflix- nice touch. We had a pool directly behind our cottage and there is a second salt water pool and hot tub... More

The roosevelt room was really nice and is really a suit, with a waiting area, a bed room, and a bathroom in the bedroom. Get the upgraded room for more space -- the other rooms are small (we've stayed here before). You are in the country, so where's there's dampness there will be bugs. Not alot but don't freak out...

This hotel reminded me of the Grand Floridian in Disney. The staff was great and polite. The place is very clean, the restaurant is great. The pool was nice, the grounds are beautiful. The right choice to stay. Plenty of things to do in Luray and this hotel is in the center of it all.

What a wonderful porch overlooking the valley! Staff was friendly and helpful. Beds were like sleeping on clouds. And room was QUIET! If a relaxing, elegant experience is what you are looking for, try this Inn. It is a bit pricey, but we enjoyed our night there.

We were impressed from the moment we walked in the lobby- it smelled wonderful and there was great music playing- very inviting. The lobby is very open with the front desk, and a small gift shop area on one side and on the other, a concierge desk (I think?), sitting area, bar and entrance to the restaurant. A room this...
