  • Sunday brunch

    by DnA518 on 2020-02-11 12:20 am

    The Mimslyn Inn is a well maintained hotel from an era past. The personnel are friendly and efficient. Their Sunday Brunch has a large variety of fresh, delicious choices. Our family highly recommends the Mimslyn.

  • An enjoyable stay at facility with class and wonderful staff

    We spent two weekend nights at the Minsly attending a conference of 50 plus. I had attended conferences there in the '70's and was looking forward to seeing the Mimslyn 2020! It is a beautiful building, on a small hill (small for that area). The view from the porch is great (they have lots of chairs but we did not sit outside in Febraury).
    The lobby is beautiful with a large fireplace, and lots of comfortable seating. We had a nice second floor room with a very comfortable, upholstered Queen Anne chair, with a small side table plus and desk and chair and lots of storage. Wonderful for a reading chair.
    Very impressed with the number of outlets and good lighting. The walk in shower tends to send water out of the area - not sure how to fix that.
    In the morning they have complimentary coffee, orange juice, and muffins in the lobby-no coffee makers in the room. A rare treat to have juice and a small muffin. We enjoyed our two meals in the Circa '31 with good food and excellent service.
    Our group had good meeting facilities, and the food at the banquet was excellent. My wife and I, along with many others were beyond impressed with the chicken entree! Exceptional service at our banquet. Overall it was great experience returning to the Mimslyn!
    If you have never stayed in a "Historic hotel", this is worth the effort.

  • New Years party

    by aolejer on 2020-02-02 09:37 am

    We did the New Years Eve party at the Mimslyn. We did the black tie event and it was a great party. We stayed in a Blue Ridge suite and it was very clean and well appointed. Only suggestion is with the space in the bathroom a big jacuzzi tub could be installed.

    The cocktail hour featured large jumbo shrimp, crab meat, fine meats/cheeses and an open bar. Alcohol for the evening could've been top shelf for the price.

    Main course was delicious. Salad, palate cleanser, steak and shrimp scampi and dessert was chocolate mousse. A suggestion to make it better would've been snacks later on in the evening.

    The party was mostly senior citizens and the band was all over 60. I just want younger couples in the future to know in case this is not they type of party you're expecting.

    I was disappointed in the lack of enforcement of the black tie dress code in the circa 31 room. We were told on the phone it had to be tuxedo and gown. A black suit wasn't good enough. We of course complied and spent the money. We get there and there are tables with guys where khakis and plaid shirts with no tie. Not even close.

    Fireworks at midnight were spectacular and exceeded expectations.

    Brunch New Years morning was delicious.

    Overall we may do it again, but the Mimslyn could really make this spectacular...as it was...it was a pretty good night.

  • Nice weekend at the Mimslyn Inn!

    We spent two nights at the Mimslyn for a murder mystery weekend. I love old, historic hotels so I was happy with this place. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, food was tasty with a nice variety and our room met our needs. Had late night drinks in the Speakeasy Bar. Cozy. Easy walk to quaint, downtown Luray and a quick drive to Luray Caverns. We will be back!

  • Ruined anniversary

    by Samtoast on 2020-01-26 01:16 pm

    We had a confirmation number after booking online and were excited to spend our anniversary here. About 5 minutes after we book we got a call saying they gave our room away to someone who walked in and that there were no other rooms available. We were unable to find any rooms anywhere else in the area. We had planned on spending quite a bit including spa services but will never even try to stay again.

    Owner Response
    Thank you for letting us know about your dissatisfaction.

    I apologize for any inconvenience this mishap caused.

    In checking our system you made the reservation the same day of arrival and within 5 minutes we called to let you know we did not have a room. The double booking occurred within 5 minutes of your booking the reservation. The fact is no one walked in and check in to the hotel that day as we were sold out for a Murder Mystery weekend. No one gave your room away I assure you.

    The staff and I try really hard to make sure these type of mistakes do not happen. I am truly sorry you are upset with the reservation process. With many third party site booking rooms via the internet, theses mistakes do occur. I do not blame computers as it takes people to input the information. I will review our procedures so can put safeguards in place to prevent other doubling bookings.

    I do hope you reconsider and give us a second chance.
