This is a great Inn: clean, comfortable, with a great staff. It was recommended by a local and it was everything they said it would be. I could have done without the same Frank Sinatra recording being played over and over during breakfast but that is a minor complaint when all is considered. The staff didn't know how to change...

We had a ladies weekend getaway at the Manor House recently and it was nothing short of exemplary. The service was more than I could ask for. Steve was very attentive and always made sure we had what we needed. Beautiful property and everything you need is on site. I will definitely be coming back!

Spent the weekend at the Mimslyn Manor House with a group of friends. The house was amazing..had everything you can imagine!

The Mimslyn Inn is a quiet three story hotel with all the amenities and a wonderful dining room with gracious staff. Located in "downtown" Luray, it is convenient to the Luray Caverns and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a health club and outdoor swimming pole. The prices are modest and the accommodations first class

Not many places to choose from and it's the best for about the same price as a comparable hotel. Not sure how they decided they were a "luxury" hotel but it is very nice. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean, bed was fresh, but the floor of the small bathroom needed some attention and so did the windows. The second...

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...

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.
