Love It, Have been there the week before Christmas for Luncheon Buffet and everything was great. The grounds are beautiful, the Buildings are exceptional, the Restaurants are fabulous. Food is really great and you must try the Peanut Soup... I know you won't regret this choice

The hotel and rooms have been totally upgraded, and are delightful and comfortable. Service is approaching five star quality. We utilized the spa, which was excellent. There are numerous small walking trails suited for walking down the meals.

Whether your thing is golf, tennis, or just walking the grounds, the Boar's Head offers great accommodations, fine food, and the friendliest staff. This was the fifth time that my wife and I have stayed here while visiting family. Everything was decorated beautifully for the holidays, and we were welcomed as if we were old friends. This stay, though short,... More

We stayed for three nights at The Boar's Head Inn right before Christmas and had a wonderful time. The Inn, while situated off of a major road, feels like it is a world unto its own. Every time we pulled into the Inn, I could not help but smile at the quaint English village decorated tastefully for the holidays. I... More

WE are frequent visitors to the BOAR's HEAD and will go back time and time again when we visit CHARLOTTESVILLE. The INN is spectacular, clean and provides old-school customer service to us more "seasoned" travelers. There is much to do there, sports club and golf and just enjoying the rustic nature of this magnificent Inn. On site food is excellent,... More

Stayed at the Boar's Head to attending the Darden Boar's Head Ball. Staff very friendly and helpful, room very clean and spacious and comfortable. The outside was decked out in Christmas lights and the store was very quaint. Ballroom is what you expect a top notch hotel ballroom to be and very appropriate for a Virginia affair. Plenty to do...

We've stayed at The Boar's Head for several years now around this time to play in a national tennis tournament. We could not ask for more lovely place to stay.

After a long day of travel, we saw a sign for Monticello and decided it was a good time to stop for the evening, grab a room, grab some dinner and take a sight seeing trip to Monticello in the morning. Little did we know that we'd find this gem! We were shown to our room by a wonderful gentleman.... More

Decided to book a night at the Boar's Head after enjoying Skyline Drive. We checked in and were located in the main building. What a surprise at our newly decorated room - no old inn feel here. It has been updated tastefully, nice linens and great bed. Loved the extra-large shower after a day of driving. The bar area is... More
