We went to the Boar's Head to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary in August 2014. We ended up signing up for the Honeymoon package which included a 2 full body massages, hot air balloon ride, limo rides to vineyards, dinner at the Old Mill Room, and breakfast every morning. Amazing experience. The service was fantastic and so was the... More

Unfortunately, I had to rate this hotel because TripAdvisor didn't have anything between "average" and "very good", which is where I think Boar's Head belongs. In fact, since I haven't had the opportunity to stay at other hotel facilities in Charlottesville, VA it's likely Boar's Head is as good as it gets in the area. In any event, you couldn't... More

When you first walk into the lobby, you feel as if you stepped back in time. This is not the case once you arrive at your room. We were delighted to find modern finishes in the room, and we were especially pleased with the bathroom and patio. We also really enjoyed late night drinks on the deck at the Bistro.... More

We've stayed at The Boars Head once before in the past and recently went back because we were going Ballooning. The grounds are very nice and the staff could not be nicer. Our room was okay, but our previous room was significantly nicer. We just stayed in the room to sleep, since we had lots to do while in the... More

We stayed here after ding a civil war tour that we started in Gettysburg and ended at Monticello. We also have great friends that live here in C'ville so it was a perfect spot to stay and visit wit them too. The rooms are clean and bed was so comfortable. There is a casual and more upscale restaurant which are... More

This place is amazing. From the superb staff to the great accommodations you will not be disappointed. The food was also amazing. The views are breathtaking around the grounds. My only complaint is that we had to leave. If you are visiting in Charlottesville , you can not go wrong staying here.

Great getaway for tennis and golf I highly recommend it if you want to be far away from city but close enough to wonderful dining and shopping. If you want to play tennis whether indoor or outdoor you can, great facility.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, after driving down from Dulles Airport in Washington, as a stopover on our way to West Virginia. What a mistake!! We should have stayed for a week!!! The hotel itself is wonderful, and set in beautiful grounds. Charlottesville is picturesque and charming, with lots to see and do. We will definitely be... More

Once again we stayed at the Boar's Head Inn. Wonderful place. Got in two rounds of golf and enjoyed the food at the Buffet several times. Rooms, food, and atmosphere are always exceptional at the BH. Staff is always helpful and friendly too. This was our third visit and it's a fantastic Go-To place for us. We will be back... More

We have stayed at Boars Head a number of times & have been to a variety of events in The Pavilion. The events have been wonderful & the food has always been amazing. The hotel & grounds are very peaceful & we will go back for years to come.
