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.

We attended the Oyster Festival last weekend. Service is wonderful as always. Mimslyn Inn is a great place to stay in Luray. The entire staff is very attentive. The General Manager and Resident Manager are very hands on. The Oyster fest was fabulous, with great food and music.

Old world style hotel set in Luray. Great outlook and a beautiful verandah with chairs for relaxing and taking in the view. Room not overly large but tastefully decorated and super comfy bed. Would definitely recommend😀

We celebrated a beautiful brunch at this gorgeous place. Easy to get too, very scenic. The food was great and well priced. 2 of our party were disabled and this historic hotel had accommodations to get to their restaurant which only made our day even better. Upscale but moderate in price. Cant wait to go back
