Room was large and nicely decorated. Bed was very comfy with good pillows and linens. Resort staff were very pleasant and the grounds were beautiful. Only a short drive to University of Virginia and good hiking areas.

Thank you for your TripAdvisor post! We regret you found us to be old and dated. We never want a guest to feel that way about our accommodations which is why we completely renovated all 175 of our guest rooms between December 2011 and April 2012. Much thought and attention to detail was given to each of the final selections.... More

Outstanding staff behind the front desk, restaurants and around the grounds. Very comfortable rooms, everything was perfect. Check-in was quick, friendly and professional. Breakfast was outstanding, both food and service. Enjoyed every minute of my stay here.

This was a great place to stay for our family. We enjoyed the pool area. Good location. It is a quiet property with friendly staff. We would stay again if we were in Charlottesville. The housekeeping staff was excellent.

They made it easy for us to really enjoy UVA orientation. Quick check in, clean rooms and we got an upgrade without asking. Breakfast was great, good dinner and bar. Beautiful setting. Can't say enough about this property. Highly recommended.

Relaxing is so easy at The Boar's Head Inn. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the Charlottesville area. The fine furnishings and spa quality bathroom amenities make you feel like royalty and the staff treats you like you are.

Just spent 3 nights celebrating with my daughter for her 20th birthday. The hotel is charming, our room was perfect, the staff are all helpful, and very friendly. We had room service one evening because we had an early balloon ride planned for the next morning, so we ordered room service, it was delivered quickly, was hot, and delicious. We... More

My wife and I recently returned to The Boar's Head Inn for a two night stay for our summer vacation trip. It is extremely well maintained and the service is terrific. The food at the Old Mill Room is expensive, but it offers a great dining experience, especially if you are not use to such a fancy option for dinner.... More

We particularly enjoyed the food and the service. We were handled like family. We'll return again for sure. The pool was great and we enjoyed our walks around the facility. We will be planning another this year (we usually only schedule one visit per year).

We stayed at this hotel over the Fourth of July and had a nice time. We thought the Ednam rooms were very nice with a large porch. We enjoyed fishing and walking the trails. Breakfast was very nice. Dinner at 1884 was fine but not a destination in itself. The Sports Club facilities were very nice. Wish they had mentioned... More
