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.

Even though our ground floor room was somewhat damp & dark, we still enjoyed a weekend @ Boars Head. The meals and bar area were great and the grounds excellent. Rooms are large enough for 4 w/o needing a suite. Definitely would stay here again when we come to charlottesville.

Wonderful hotel; rooms are spacious, clean and has a nice decor. The pool is big with a sauna and steam room. Got some nice tennis courts and a golf course for some fun time but they cost extra to use I think. 15mins or so from downtown. Great place for families, couples and friends!

Just had a reunion at the facility. While there was some construction overall we enjoyed our stay immensely. The location is wonderful and the staff was attentive. Would definitely return and fell confident in the accommodations

We stayed at the recommendation of a good friend who was helping us plan our road trip from North Carolina to Delaware. The Boar's Head was undergoing some renovation work while we stayed but this in no way detracted from our experience. The staff were all friendly, helpful and thoughtful, the rooms were very well looked after, and the breakfast... More

Four college friends got together for a reunion in Charlottesville, VA, and we had a wonderful stay at The Boar's Head Inn. As it happened to be restaurant week, we had a delicious dinner at The Old Mill restaurant for a very reasonable price. Our room was quiet and had a nice view. The grounds of the inn were beautiful,... More

Nobody can fault the beautiful setting of this place, just outside of downtown Charlottesville and nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There is a center pond, surrounded by weeping willows and a walking path. The sleeping rooms are located in a few out buildings, some more modern than others. The formal dining room, casual bar/bistro, and reception... More
