The boars head has LOVELY service (faultless and friendly). Some very nice features and a gorgeous situation. However, we were very disappointed with the bedroom and the bed linen. When we arrived the comforter was dirty as was the bed cover. The comforter/duvet was immediately replaced with a "new one straight from the box"; however, it still was uncovered. You...

While attending an event at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville I stayed at the Boar's Head Inn. It is, without doubt, the finest place in the Charlottesville area to lay your head. The rooms are large and bright when you need them to be and dark when you don't. The food and spirits are out of this world. You...

This hotel has all the modern amenities with old historic charm. The decor is warm and cozy and the scenery is picturesque. The bartenders, wait staff, and everyone else were very helpful and attentive. It was February and cold and rainy so most of our time was spent just enjoying the bar and the fire. Cannot wait to visit Charlottesville...

I recently stayed at Boar's Head for an overnight while my mother was in the hospital at UVA. I absolutely love the Inn, and the grounds are exquisite! I have eaten dinner here before with family and friends, but had not stayed overnight. I had a King room with a balcony - it was so nice to relax with a...

Grounds still lovely but the property is starting to look a tad dated and carpet and other elements of the public spaces showing some wear. Room was nice and clean but carpet and furnishings looked a little worn. Bar service slow. Nice dinner and friendly staff.

Stayed here to attend a conference held on-site. The rooms were clean and spacious. The conference rooms were great and at the right temperature, not too hot or cold. The food was excellent. And the staff was very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I went to Boar's Head Inn in Jan 2017 for our 20th anniversary. It was nice, but really needs to figure out its identity. It markets itself as a small old fashioned alpine type inn, but seems to be converting to a conference center for Univ of Virginia. Our room was excellent - very clean, classy, and...

This hotel was over and above my expectations. It was truly exquisite very clean comfortable and so much character and history. The grounds are so picturesque. Fabulous restaurants on location.25 miles from the airport they also prove a shuttle service during day hours. The ladies at the front desk were very attentive.

My experience was wonderful as far as room and amenities. The waiters for our particular group were not very friendly or helpful. It was almost like they were told to serve and not respond to any guests, and when they did it was very matter of fact and frosty.
