The Boar's Head is a classic hotel offering lovely grounds, great dining and a beautiful health complex. You'll relax and feel like you traveled back in time. Decor and furnishings are comfortable and elegant. My 2nd floor room was large, very clean and well appointed. I didn't hear a sound all night. Paint splotches on window sills and scratches on...

The Boar's Head is a unique place, traditional and very welcoming; we visit regularly and we always look forward to our visits, winter or summer. It is stunning in the snow and fabulous in the summer. Great food, great service, spacious rooms, wonderful facilities. We have no hesitation in recommending it. .

Last spring we were visiting UVa for our son. People told us the Boars Head was a uniquely Charlottesville experience. We booked one night but an oncoming snow storm forced us to leave DC early and stay a second night. It was simply amazing in the snow. The next day the tour was cancelled so we spent more time here... More

This is a gorgeous Inn with really nice rooms and comfortable beds. I am always there for conferences with a discount, so I don't know how "expensive" it usually is, but I have always gotten a great deal for this super nice place.

We had a friend visit with us for a few days to help with my wife who just got out of the hospital after major surgery. Nice atmosphere and very attentive service (maybe too much). This is a jacket crowd of local movers and shakers and well heeled travelers. Food was excellent but very expensive. Worth it? Only your financial... More

I will preface that it was a snowy weekend that left the staff short and there were two conferences in the hotel. The person that helped us check, Johnathan, was a consummate pro.
