We were on our way back from a family event and stayed here for the first time. The room was charming and the view was great. House cleaning was lacking in the fact that there was toothpaste on the shower curtain that was certainly something that needed to be addressed. Hopefully next time they will pay attention to details. Everything...

Boars Heads Inn is an ideal choice in Charlottesville (have been there before for conferences). For this family trip, only glitch was sofa bed not being made upon arrival. Rooms are nice and food (both room service and at restaurant) excellent--as well as service. Would definitely look forward to returning.

In town for one night & got in late so stopped at Boar's Head for a light dinner. We ate at the bar & my husband said it was one of the best Caesar salads he has had. I had a salad & the crab cake appetizer that was very moist & full of crab. The full dinners that went...

Having been in Charlottesville just a few months prior and staying elsewhere, I wanted a different experience. I was visiting the University with my son and thought that it would be a nice way to spend sometime and treat ourselves. We were not disappointed. From the front desk staff, to the waitstaff everyone was very kind and professional. We had...

Dear Abbytheonlyone, Thank you for your TripAdvisor post. Boar’s Head’s close proximity to the Grounds and to downtown Charlottesville, as well as our bucolic setting, set us apart from other properties. Thanks for noticing and sharing this strength with other travelers. We encourage you to experience the peace and serenity of a spa getaway this spring as well. Hurry back!...

The Boar's Head Inn was the perfect mother-daughter getaway destination. We visited 2 nearby breweries prior to checking in. After checking in, we parked and shopped the historic downtown mall area. Back at the resort, we dined in the bistro and were very pleased with the delicious salmon choice. Our room was spacious, comfortable and impeccably decorated. The next morning...

Second year in a row we stayed at the Boars Head while playing in a USTA tourney, very comfortable hotel with unique features, athletic facilities are top notch, location is perfect. Only complaint is the food served at the bar is a bit pricey and underwhelming,

I came here for a conference about a year ago. Let's just say it did not go well. This was surprising as I had heard nothing but good things about the resort. We spoke with management afterwards and they gave us a complimentary future night in the hotel. We used our night this past weekend and they more than made...

Our weekend was very chilly so we didn't get to experience the beautiful grounds at the inn. We stayed on the lake and it was wonderful. The room was modern and comfortable and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We went to a couple of wineries during the day and this inn is very convenient to the wine territory....

I have stayed at the hotel for conferences and when I went to see the Rolling Stones. The conferences have always run smoothly and the food is very good. We were upgraded to a suite with a working fireplace on one of my stays at the hotel, which was lovely.
