Last spring we were visiting UVa for our son. People told us the Boars Head was a uniquely Charlottesville experience. We booked one night but an oncoming snow storm forced us to leave DC early and stay a second night. It was simply amazing in the snow. The next day the tour was cancelled so we spent more time here...

This is a gorgeous Inn with really nice rooms and comfortable beds. I am always there for conferences with a discount, so I don't know how "expensive" it usually is, but I have always gotten a great deal for this super nice place.

We had a friend visit with us for a few days to help with my wife who just got out of the hospital after major surgery. Nice atmosphere and very attentive service (maybe too much). This is a jacket crowd of local movers and shakers and well heeled travelers. Food was excellent but very expensive. Worth it? Only your financial...

I will preface that it was a snowy weekend that left the staff short and there were two conferences in the hotel. The person that helped us check, Johnathan, was a consummate pro. The spa services were excellent as was Ashley, the concierge. The patio off of our room was amazing. It was too bad the weather was in the...

Wife and I went here for Valentines. Front desk was fast and our massages were top of the line. Old Mill room offers high quality meals, and the afternoon tea, coffee and pastry services is a nice touch.

Excellent overall experience, can't wait to go back!!! The spa was very relaxing. Rooms were recently updated and had high end everything, even the tile floor in the bathroom was heated. The character and history of the property was very interesting. Dinner at the Old Mill Room was delicious!
