We just returned from a three night stay at Boars Head. We chose the resort carefully as we like to avoid chain hotels when possible. I have to say, I was disappointed with our stay and would not select Boards Head again or recommend it. While the staff was friendly and the resort clean...we had too many issues to overlook....

Lovely hotel for a family gathering or romantic getaway. Beautiful room with very comfortable beds. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and the main restaurant was very good. Would definitely come back.

The family and I stayed here for one night while visiting Monticello. The staff (especially Shea at the front desk) were kind and polite, efficient and helpful. Our room (#701) was very clean, pretty, and spacious. We had a sweet porch that overlooked the lake (the kids loved this) that we would have taken more advantage of, had it not... More

My husband and I just came home from a one-night weekend stay at the Boars Head to celebrate his birthday. We often escape to nice hotels for a weekend, and as residents of Charlottesville, we were looking forward to finally trying out our own local Boars Head Inn. What I can say is that we were entirely underwhelmed, and as... More

My wife and I made the two hour trip from the DC area to Charlottesville for a weekend getaway from the kids. :) The Boar's Head was exactly what we were hoping for. Fantastic restaurant in the Old Mill, on site. Food was excellent. Great spa and world class fitness facility. Ideal spot for a weekend away.

I recently attended a business meeting at the Boar's Head in Charlottesville, VA. The hotel offered a unique experience while also offering all the comforts you would expect in a location like this.

Historic must be code for old and musty. Very old, dark, musty rooms with bugs in one suite then moved to another suite with more bugs. Superficial remodel, but has none of the amenities of similarly rated hotels. The TV in the bedroom was so small. I have been touring schools and traveling from hotel to hotel and this has... More

The staff was extremely helpful. The bed was comfortable and high quality. The room could have been a little cleaner. There also wasn't a lot for a family to do, especially with the pool closed for the winter.
