Having never been here before, despite having gone to UVa many moons ago, I was super excited to stay! Other than being confusing on where the hotel is in regards to the rest of the spacious campus, the drive in at night was gorgeous. Lobby is everything you would expect in an old building, right down to the old style... More

Have stayed at the resort many times and always very consistent. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are very clean, and the resort is in a beautiful setting and highly convenient to UVA. Rooms are well appointed and have been updated recently. The Boar's Head is always my first choice in Charlottesville.

This is a beautiful resort with very friendly staff and plush accommodations. It is very convenient to the downtown area as well as UVA and wineries - within 15 minutes each. There are trails around the property for walking and running. The golf course is beautiful.

We were recent guests at the Boar's Head Inn - I found this resort online and I must say I expected better. The furniture was worn and neglected in the reception area. The same was true in our room and drawers were out of line, etc. With a little TLC the furniture could look like new; stain, varnish. Upon entering... More

My aunt and I were taking our time traveling from Charlotte NC to NJ. We decided to stop in Charlottesville VA on our way back. Randomly found this wonderful inn/hotel -- which has nothing to do with the deli meat....Cozy, historic, charming. Lovely rooms with terraces. Terrific restaurant and bar.

Our one-night stay for a getaway was very relaxing. Looking forward to a return trip. Quiet. Walking trails, golf, spa. Stayed in a lake-view room with balcony, which we enjoyed. You may want to ask about local events--football weekends or concert weekends may be more crowed than our experience.

Room had plenty of space and was nicely decorated with photos of historic architecture and places in and around Charlottesville and the U. Va. campus. Room had a full-length mirror. Bathroom was small but renovated, and provided everything that was needed, including a hairdryer and makeup mirror. No dry cleaning available.
