Stayed on the inn for one night while exploring Luray Caverns. We had a small "historic" room that was quite nice. Queen sized bed which was very comfortable. Room was large enough to feel comfortable and had what appeared to be a recently renovated bathroom. Wi-fi signal was lost in the room, but we really didn't care. Speakeasy restaurant on...

Upon our arrival, we were immediately impressed with the exterior of the building. Once inside, we continued to appreciate the cleanliness, pleasant staff, and luxurious accommodations in our suite. We dined in the Speakeasy Restaurant and we were pleased with the menu and attentive staff, as we had our two children with us. The musicians for the evening even played...

Lovely setting. We have a tradition of finding old, quaint hotels to stay in and this one hit the mark. The Christmas decoration were a plus and the pianist playing Christmas music was a nice touch. The setting was lovely, dinner was great, and we enjoyed our stay. It appeared as if there were some children in the room above...

We recently spent 3 days at the Mimslyn, attending our niece's wedding. The hotel is utterly charming, especially in the winter, with its fireplaces and cozy spaces. We were fortunate enough to have a nice suite on the 3rd floor; it was spacious, with a living area (with fireplace), a good sized bathroom and bedroom with king bed. On the...

I cannot say enough amazing things about The Mimslyn Inn. The history of the property lends itself to its incredible aesthetic and charm. My husband and I stayed in the Bridal Cottage, and had the most incredible experience. It was absolutely stunning, and perfect for a romantic getaway. The service was also impeccable. We will certainly be back!

We spent four nights with family and friends here for our son's wedding weekend. Besides the obvious - the hotel is charming, the view is awesome and everything is within walking distance, the service was far beyond anything we could have expected. Everyone was getting in at different times so we couldn't plan dinner early or make reservations. When I...

Booked this hotel based upon the good reviews it received on TripAdvisor. Booking online was easy as the website indicated which rooms were available and how many people could fit in a room. I never mentioned to the kids what the hotel looked like and they were expecting something along the lines of a Marriott. Boy were they surprised when...

This is an old hotel that has lots of character and charm, it's a bit of a step back in time. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. The bed was comfortable, and I am extremely critical of mattresses. They should upgrade their cable TV, there are very few channels available.
