My wife and I just got back from spending New Year's Eve at the Mimslyn and there are not enough positive superlatives in my vocabulary to express my admiration for this fine old hotel. The food was delcious from the 5 course meal we had in the Circa 31 room to the unbelievably large and diverse Brunch the following day....

Paul recommended both the breakfast and brunch and we were very pleased with both. Both the food and service were excellent. Jessica was good waitress and Robin the host was very helpful. We visited at the end of the summer 2013 and will return this year as well.

What a beautiful hotel for a Sunday brunch. Having grown up in Virginia I never realized this jewel of a hotel right down the road from Luray caverns. While we did not stay at the hotel, I could tell that then guests staying there were very happy with the accommodations. We had Sunday brunch which was fabulous. They had a...

Originally we were planning to hike the MD section of the AT until I had surgery. So I wanted to get away without losing my connection to the outdoors. This is the place to do it! We are close to day hikes in Shenandoah, Luray Caverns, and tons of other close by local charm. We even had an hour massage...

Lovely inn with great food and very accomodating service. Enjoy unique circular staircase up to second floor and sunny lounge beside the elevator on third floor. Speakeasy restaurant and breakfast in dining room serve excellent food, especially great muffins in am. If you plan to spend significant time in your room, spring for a suite as the regular rooms, while...

My husband and I had reservations for a suite with a fireplace, the fireplace was warm and welcoming, the room spacious and comfortable, and the staff superb in looking after our every interest! Would recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet get away or exploring the beautiful surroundings. Plenty to do if you so choose. Recommend the experience highly!

We headed to Luray on a whim with no reservations, saw The Mimslyn and immediately fell in love. Situated on small hill, it is lovely to look at and has a great view. Although the room is smallish (particularly with king bed) as it is an historical inn, it was very comfortable and well-equipped. All the staff are attentive, helpful...

The Hotel is exquisite and the view is outstanding and memorable. This is somewhere I will always come back to. Rooms were lovely with a nice view. Everyone at the hotel was more than willing to help you. We had Crystal for our wine tasting experience and she was wonderful and answered all our questions. The other employees most helpful...

Always cheerful - they gave some good ideas - right down to "where" to surprise...

Approaching and entering the beautiful Mimslyn, you're tempted to look around for Jay Gatsby. The period building and decor is lush and inviting, with a pianist playing the grand piano in the lobby every evening adding a classy touch. The lobby staff is friendly, though the staff in the two restaurants tend to make themselves scarce. Our standard room was...
