I just left a massage spa service that was disappointing at best. A 50 minute massage that, with gratuity included, set me back $165.20. The massage was just ok. And spending that amount would have been fine if the amenities were anything to speak of. On the contrary, all that is offered is a steam room that you can't spend... More

Our room was wonderful and backed onto the lake area, including a screen door for easy access. The furnishings were elegant and tasteful. Location was perfect for visiting the University, less than two miles from most points of interest. We didn't have time to take advantage of the amenities but was jealous in reading through the in-room guide of all... More

We stayed over night because we took advantage of the option to fly one of their balloons. The customer service was excellent, and Sunday brunch was first class. We enjoyed staying there very much. I am handicapped, and everyone went out of their way to accommodate and help me whenever they could.

We stayed at the Boars Head Inn on a lovely fall weekend. The restaurant and grounds were exquisite. I unfortunately left a suitcase in our hotel room and drove home unbeknownst that the suitcase was still in the room.

attended a conference that was held at the Boar's Head Inn, and it was wonderful. We stayed in a regular guest room, but it was very nice and spacious.

My wife and I stayed in Charlottesville after The Top of the Hop Festival. Finding a hotel on short notice was a little challenging. Luckily we found The Boar's Head. The hotel was a nice surprise.

Stayed over night for a two day seminar. Rooms are clean, comfortable, baths updated, fully equipped. Bistro menu was limited, main dining more formal (jacket required) and more expensive then i needed. For casual visitors the golf, tennis and spa are well regarded. Well equipped exercise facility. Grounds are spectacular in season.

The Boar's Head is a wonderful hotel. It seems that it has always been wonderful, because both of my grandmothers fondly remember it from many (many!) years ago. Today's Boars Head is no exception. A lovely hotel with wonderful service. The dining room is excellent. We enjoy dinner there for special occasions and are never disappointed.
