“Beautiful resort, but noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Stayed here for 3 nights during the week. Husband was attending an on-site conference. My only issues were the mold in the shower along the door & how noisy the room was. The mold wasn't bad, but any mold is unappealing. We stayed on the first floor of the Edgam Bldg & we could hear every footstep from the room above us. Unfortunately, they had a very hard walk, so it sounded like stomping all day long & until late at night. On top of that, it caused the ceiling light's metal ring to rattle as well. It nearly drove me batty as I was working in the room all day. You could also hear every door open & shut & people walking up & down the hall. But the grounds are wonderful, food was good at both the sports grill & bistro, the bed was comfy, adjusting room temp was easy & the room had a fridge, a desk & a comfy chair to relax.

Stayed April 2015, traveled on business

This was our first time visiting Charlottesville and we very much enjoyed our stay at the Boar's Head Inn. While our room was not in the main part of the inn it was lovely. We also booked through Priceline and got a great deal. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens very soft. We were among only a few guests in Ednam Hall during our stay so it was quiet and peaceful. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed several nice walks around. We were in Charlottesville for to visit Monticello and tour the area as a quick romantic getaway. It was nice to be able to quickly drive to the Historic Downtown area or UVA and not staying in the heart of that activity. If we were visiting the college staying closer in might have been our choice. Two things that could use improvement -- though the main door to our building was wired to be key activated the door remained unlocked at all times. Also, I was surprised by the resort fee added on when checking out -- it was not much -- but if I'd know it was part of the deal I might have made more of an effort to use more of the facilities.

The Boar's Head is the perfect setting for a weekend get away in Charlottesville - beautiful grounds, very comfortable rooms, a golf course, exercise facility including squash courts,spa, and a world class sunday brunch! It's very close to the UVA campus, Monticello and many Charlottesville activities. We booked our room thru priceline and got a great rate - we found it to be superior to other accommodations in the area.

My room was in Ednam Hall, so perhaps rooms/experiences in the main building are different/better.

I was pretty disappointed. It has been about 10 years since I last stayed at the Boar's Head and my room/Ednam Hall came across as very dated, dingy, odd smelling and slightly dirty. The outside and the interior hallways are very unappealing/bland and the attention to detail was not very good. The bed was comfortable. The grounds are attractive and if I were there to play tennis, I would care less about the accomodations. Compared to a nice Comfort Inn, the room and accomodations would be fine -- but the Boar's Head bills itself as a "resort" and, again, in Ednam Hall, I didn't feel like I was at a resort.

I was visiting UVa with my son and we should have stayed down at the Corner at the Hampton Inn or Residence Inn. I have to believe the accomodations would have been just as good, if not better, and the location would have been MUCH better.

The Boar's Head needs a major overhaul. Very disappointed.

The setting of this place is serene and beautiful. The rooms are very nicely decorated. Renovated bathrooms and very comfortable beds and furnishings. The staff is extremely courteous and I love the cozy feel of the check in area and the bar area. Can't say enough good things about our stay there. Would highly recommend. We stayed there for an orientation event for my daughter at UVA. It is very convenient to the campus and there is a discount for alumni and parents of UVA students. This was not a busy weekend so we got a great rate and I found the value to be incredible for the experience we had.

Room Tip: I like the charm of the rooms in the old house- high ceilings and more convenient.

The Boar's Head is a lovely hotel with beautiful grounds, recently renovated and very comfortable rooms, a great golf course and excellent dining. Very close to UVA and Monticello and close to many outdoor activities.

The grounds are lovely. The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and charming. Having a balcony was very nice to enjoy the spring weather. The restaurant had a really good breakfast and Easter brunch.
