We experienced friendly and excellent service from the moment we checked in. The staff was attentive. The hotel lobby is very nicely decorated! The room was simply clean in addition to being well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. The housekeepers seem to take pride in their work and the room was meticulously prepared. We arrived on a Friday night and ate a late dinner at the Speak Easy Lounge and we were impressed by the quality and taste of the food that we ordered and the servers were quite attentive. The lunch buffet at the Circa ’31 was deliciously prepared. The prices in both hotel restaurants are quite reasonable. The warm muffins at the complimentary continental breakfast were tasty, but get there early since they do run out by mid-late morning (at least on the weekend we were there). Plus, I wish they would have hot tea available, too, instead of just coffee and orange juice.
One thing that we really appreciated is the Hotel policy regarding extraneous noise between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. and it is enforced. This alone helped to make the overnight stay restful. The common areas (the upstairs outdoor terrace with gas fireplace and the sunroom with comfy sofas and gas fireplace come to mind) are inviting. Unfortunately, it was winter (February), so we could only appreciate the hot tub and pool from afar. Wi-fi worked fine.
The hotel is only a block away from what looks to be “downtown” Luray. There are a couple of great restaurants there (I recommend Gathering Grounds!). There is a very nice greenway that cuts through downtown and you can walk north or south from the main drag. The Luray information booth at a renovated train station is a source of much information regarding the locality and its events. Overall, our experience at the Mimslyn Inn was excellent. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are going back in April!
