WOW. This was the most unique hotel I have seen! I stayed in May on business and from the moment the doors opened, it was an exceptional experience. The staff here was friendly and helpful. The hotel had great options in the restaurant and the speakeasy lounge in the basement. We enjoyed the fresh air option on the room too....

Amazing hotel, clean rooms, great staff with one of the best Chefs in the state of VA. When you go have to try the Circa lounge; food is amazing!!! While there inquire about the amazing history of the hotel. Hotel has a spa, a nice hot tub, and a great workout facility.

I recently stayed at the Mimslyn Inn for two days in one of the cottages on the hill behind the hotel. My stay was wonderful. The cottage had all anyone would need plus a wonderful view of the mountains in the distance. I enjoyed meals in both the restaurants at the Mimslyn. The food and service were both excellent. If...

Spent two nights at this lovely inn while in the area. Historic queen room larger than expected, immaculately clean, comfortable and quiet. Staff was very attentive and courteous. Reception, housekeeping and doorpeople very nice. We tried the date night special at Circle 31. Good value and good food. Nothing extraordinary and the waitstaff must have been new and could not...

Stayed there with my gal yesterday. The hotel itself is historic and has a certain charm to it. However, I paid $150 for "luxurious" hotel room that didn't even have: 1) refrigerator 2) bathroom vent 3) a decent outside view. The furniture in the room was old and antique, but the bed was way high up. I doubt older folks...

The beauty of this historic inn can only be surpassed by its wonderful staff. They make you feel warm and welcome. The property has cottages in addition to the main hotel. It's so unique and the location is stunning in the Shenandoah Valley. I will definitely be back with my husband or maybe a getaway weekend with girlfriends!

I stayed at the Mimslyn for two night for a business gathering and have never received such amazing service. From the check in to the check out everyone I encountered was amazing. If your in the area this is the place to stay. Make sure you take advantage of both dining options, you won't be disappointed.

Beautifully restored hotel that will take you to or back to the 1930's. The service and facilities are unequalled. When speaking about class there's First Class and just above that is "Mimslyn Class". Introduce yourself to Jim Sims the Host and General Manager and in just a few moments you'll know why the Mimslyn is so great.
