We LOVED our wedding at the Mimslyn Inn. It's a beautiful hotel, rooms are comfortable, bellman and staff are very accommodating, and the food was delicious! We had a tasting prior to the event and the food on our wedding buffet was just as hot and delicious as it was during our private tasting.

I do feel like the Mimslyn's claims to have a day-of wedding coordinator are a bit misleading. Several of my emails prior to the wedding would go unanswered for many weeks which was a source of stress for a busy bride. I did not see the wedding coordinator at ALL on the day of the wedding until I was walking down the aisle. I spent the entire morning getting ready at the Inn and she never once came in to check on me or help set anything up. I heard from a family friend that she saw the coordinator giving a sales tour of the venue to another couple on the morning of my wedding which was disappointing to m, showing me she wasn't really focused on my event. She also seemed very uninformed on the logistics or typical order of the wedding ceremony. While she was present during our rehearsal, our minister orchestrated everything to ensure the big event ran smoothly.

My experience with this one staff member did NOT cast a shadow over my day though. We had a beautiful wedding and our guests loved every minute of it. I would absolutely recommend this venue to friends or family, but I would caution you to plan to have a family member act as the coordinator or mistress of ceremonies on the big day.

We had our wedding at the Mimslyn Inn and absolutely loved it. The hotel is gorgeous, the staff is super friendly, and all of our guests were impressed with the location, quality of service, and venue. The food was delicious, and we even opted for the buffet (which usually isn't quite as hot or good as plated meals) but was actually better I think than the plated options because some of our guests went back for 3rds! They were so flexible and accommodating with us and allowed us to have our informal rehearsal dinner on the patio of the third floor, where we ordered food from the amazing Italian restaurant across the street, and just hung out all night. They also allowed us to have an after-party on that patio, which was great for our guests to just walk upstairs after the wedding ended at midnight to continue to hang out until the wee hours of the morning. All in all it was wonderful. The only negative experience we had was with the female bartender, who was randomly rude to some of our guests. This was really out of context with every other staff member, and maybe she was just having an off night? Anyhow, we let them know about this, and the General Manager of the hotel called us within an hour and offered us a significant refund because he stated they absolutely don't allow that to happen. That was a first, an unsolicited refund, when we really just wanted them to know about that experience. I would hands down do another event at this hotel. It was fabulous.

I loved our wedding on the day of....having all of our guests under one roof for the weekend was awesome, the food was fantastic, it was a warm and inviting atmosphere and I wouldn't have changed it for anything.

That said, we encountered several issues leading up to our wedding day that were very frustrating and unnecessary. We were promised things in the beginning that they tried to turn their word on in the weeks before our wedding - my best advice is to get every single thing you want and are told you can have in writing and included in the contract. This was our fault for not doing this from the beginning, but I take people at their word, especially when it comes to things like what chairs we can use, what the room layout will look like, etc...

All in all, it was a fantastic place to have a wedding, but they would be much better off if they had a rock solid event coordinator who can effectively work with couples on their wedding day plans in advance of the big day.

If you want to get out of the city, go to Luray. The Mimslyn Inn is a beautiful setting with the large colonial building high up on the hill and we loved having our wedding there last fall. With 45 historic rooms and suites, we were able to reserve the entire Inn for family and friends. We never had to leave the site, we had our ceremony in the Blue Ridge Ballroom and our reception in the Circa '31 Dining Room, all in one place. It was gorgeous with the beautiful blue ridge mountains in the background. The Inn's general manager and staff couldn't have been nicer and accommodated all of our needs. We even had an after wedding party downstairs at the Inn's Speakeasy bar, it was great. Thanks again Mimslyn.
