The Boars Head

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful room, friendly and attentive staff, lots of things to do at the resort as well as in the surrounding area.

Enjoyed running on the grounds and walking atmosphere. Lunch was terrific in the restaurant. Great visit and retreat.

The hotel room was spacious and clean; the bed was very comfortable. We had the pleasure of eating dinner and breakfast in the Hotel and both meals were quite guide. From check in, to the waitstaff in the restaurant, all of the staff were very pleasant and professional.

room is clean, nice place, very good experience. the best hotel in the area

A terrific Thanksgiving and intro to the Christmas season with a tree illumination and caroling

The grill was terrific, the staff kind, knowledgeable and entertaining. Loved waking up to the lake. Wish we had more time to enjoy this great escape!!

My wife and I had a fabulous time at the Boars Head Inn. The staff were helpful and attentive, the food at the restaurant delicious, and the location beautiful and peaceful. A perfect place to spend our 30th anniversary!

To say the Boar's Head Inn is charming is an understatement. It is (nearly) Southern Comfort at its best. The amenities at the sports complex are very impressive, and staff are responsive and helpful. Everything is done in a way to make guests feel most comfortable and 'at home'.

The Boarsehead was beautifully adorned for the Holiday. The fires were burning and the lights and garland were up. The staff was very pleasant and the atmosphere was so very peaceful. A great place to stay for the holidays.

I scheduled an overnight for me at the Boar's Head Inn in Charlottesville, VA on Tuesday July 22, 2014. With taxes and fees (160.00 + 20.81) the charge to my card was $180.81. I found out this was a standard Boar's Head Inn room and according to the desk clerk the charge for that room is $148.84. The Boar's Head Inn was well worth $148.84. Rodney

We had a very good experience at the inn. We were treated exceptionally well by the staff. The dining was very good, but not exceptional. The grounds around the inn were gorgeous, but our room's location in an adjoining building did not lend itself to deriving the benefit of it.; however, the room was adequate, quiet and clean. In all, the inn deserves a 4-star rating, we believe.

I was very upset when I got to my room it was very small and no lake view like I booked I did not feel I got my money's worth at all the staff did put us in another room much larger and with a view of a pond I still not impressed with the rooms at all staff was polite but did not tell us of any of the amenities that this resort offered at all it was peaceful but definitely not a 4 star resort and definitely for older couples

Beautiful setting by a small lake, with a walking path around it. Worth getting a lake view room. Room was a comfortable size. Bed was comfortable. The real treasure was the staff - even the doorman was very friendly and accommodating. The food was very good but not a lot of choice. Again, the staff could not have given better service. Getting to the room was a bit confusing. Having help with getting luggage to the room would have gotten the Inn another star in my rating. The public places are decorated in an elegant Virginia style that beckons with comfort. Well located for easy access to the many Charlottesville area attractions.

This hotel experience is one of the best ever (and we have stayed at several 5 stars). The rooms are lovely, the service is friendly, and the food is stellar! I would recommend this hotel to everyone! And when I go back to Charlottesville, I will definitely stay there!

Overall the hotel was quite nice. A bit pretentious, but comfortable until I returned home and discovered they charged me for a room I had booked, and paid for, through an online source. Clearing up the charge was a headache I did not need. Beware, if you stay there and check your credit card statement when you return home.

The staff was very helpful with our stay.. After a day of wine tasting at local vineyards, we greatly appreciated the comfort of our room.

Excellent hotel to stay with young teens, lots of amenities. However, it is difficult to find and not very conveniently located. We played tennis at the club and everything was excellent except for the fact that personnel weren't very helpful. For example they claimed that all courts were busy on Thursday night which turned out to be false. The cost per hour is not clear. It seems they charge whatever they want. We also asked for an hour but we were charged for an hour and a half.

I have been visiting the Boar's Head Inn for years: while it was always offered a lovely and comfortable experience, the new renovations to the guest rooms are fantastic! In buildings that can seem dark and overbearing from the outside, the guest rooms feel bright, crisp and spacious. A great place for a weekend getaway, or to relax after a Cavalier football game.

Boars Head was excellent. We had a very nice time and Chalottesville area very good for a few days visit.

Had a great time. The rooms are a little old but perfectly acceptable. The bed was great and the grounds are beatiful.
