Lovely place. Easy to get in. In a great location and Luray is beautiful. Great amenities and the breakfast had a great selection. Complementary drinks were a bonus. We were concerned that there were no onsite staff but there was no need to be. Beds and pillows were very comfortable and that’s the main thing. Very close to national park in a quiet spot.
The entire experience, from booking until check out, was near perfect! The co-owners, Kyle and his Dad (sorry, not sure of his first name) were nothing short of fantastic! Yes, it's true that there isn't anyone "on site", but when we had a small issue with the tv in our room, Kyle was knocking at our door within 15 minutes of my initial text to him. Now that is service! He was kind, professional and not at all "put off" that he needed to swing by to help us. There was an issue with paying through Booking.com (a problem with Booking.com not anyone else even though they tried to say it was a problem elsewhere) and when I contacted Kyle's dad and told him of the issue, he reassured me he had been dealing with the problem for a few months, put my mind at ease and we were able to work everythiing out. Our room, the Cavern Room, was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the window air conditioner kept it super cool. There is also central air throughout the remainder of the house. Continental breakfast was plentiful and available between 7:30-10:30 on Friday morning. We used the hot tub in the backyard and thought that was a great bonus! It was set up so you had privacy and the "roof" was cut out so that the stars could be seen at night. It is available to all people staying at the 4 unit home. We absolutely would recommend anyone staying here and would 100% stay again if in the area.…
This is luck of the draw, but with contactless business and door codes texted for entry, your fellow occupants are an unknown. While two couples were lovely, the third set arrived later, parked on the neighbor's lawn, and cursed, yelled and laughed until 3am. At 5:30am their TV came on and the cursing started up again. With no onsite management, we all stayed locked in our rooms and endured the night. I am glad they stayed in the next morning, so breakfast was undisturbed, and we left right after. Very nice selection of choices, from small quiche, fruit, cereal, bagels, juices. Not homemade, but quite satisfactory. Lovely house, very clean, great location, off street parking, door codes worked perfectly.
Clean, well furnished nice room. There were common sitting areas but we did not use them. Continental breakfast was very tasty. The keyless excess system worked well. The caretaker was very responsive to my text message. I'd stay again. Two
This is very near the center of Luray, Va and is only 5 minutes by car to the caverns. The pluses: great location, clean, quiet. The cons: there was no in person check in so no way to ask a few questions, Breakfast was 'continental', juice, yogurt etc so the 2nd B was underwhelming. Strange, incomprehensible streaming TV setup in room and no instructions.
I got the hotel because it is right in the heart of the town which I found out later that all of them are. If you don't need to talk to anyone, include who's running the place, this place is for you. A small place (old home) and at a quiet street. The place is run remotely but you can always call a manager if you have some concerns or questions. Nice and clean with good air conditioning system. Good to sleep and run the next day (for me). I love to stay at bed and breakfast or small hotel but I need human contact. Surprise that there is no sink in the kitchen. The seating area is set to accommodate while eating breakfast.
Stayed here for one night on a trip to Shenandoah NP for the leaves and hiking. Chose it for the convenient location (12 miles from the Thornton Gap Park entrance) and this being a well reviewed and most affordable B&B in Luray. It's in a charming small updated house in a quiet residential neighborhood just on the edge of town (10-15 min walk) with spacious parking and small hot tub in back. There are altogether 4 rooms and on this Sunday evening occupants were just us and another couple. Public areas include a small parlor, breakfast room, pantry with microwave, and porch with tables and a swing chair. House is clean and well kept but not staffed (the other guests did meet the manager who was there early the next morning at breakfast but gone by the time we got up). Entry by door codes which were emailed to us on day of checkin. Presumably we could contact the manager anytime had there been a need but none arose while we were there. We had the Shenandoah room on the second floor, the smallest but updated and cozy with pleasing pastel colored walls. The queen bed a bit small but quite comfortable, nice bathroom with a very good and hot shower. Nice to have the bottled water and soft drinks in the fridge! Only thing was the aircon unit was a bit loud given the room size and also made a slight whiny noise on shut off. Breakfast was simple but adequate - boiled eggs, sausage patties, bagels, muffins, donuts, cereal, apples/bananas. Possible improvement: glazed donuts were very messy - plain ones would be much better! Overall we were very happy with our stay - it will be our first B&B choice next time we head out this way.…
Where’s Waldo, or How To Run an absentee inn. This is a true no-frills experience, but is acceptable only for the low cost. There was no visible innkeeper on premises, just an OK room with a minimal continental breakfast that appeared magically in the A.M. Our bathroom needed a thorough cleaning. Would try another spot, if visiting Luray again. Advise you to do the same.
As the other reviewers all say it is close to everything. There isn't much of "everything" in Luray but our accommodations were wonderful. This is an old home but kept up nicely. For the most part we had the place to ourselves and took advantage of the large chess set in the parlor. The continental breakfast was very nice and the room was comfortable and adequate for our needs. The only downside in my opinion is that getting there can be bothersome. It is on a one way street and the "downtown" area is the other way. I was hoping to use the hot tub but it is on the other side of the parking lot, kind of in the neighbors yard.
We were in town for a wedding Labor Day weekend. Everything was either booked or very expensive. We found Hawksbill House and were so happy we did. The house is very clean and so was the room. It was in a great location with parking behind the house. There is one room on the main floor and 3 upstairs. We would definitely stay here again.
