I have stayed at the hotel for conferences and when I went to see the Rolling Stones. The conferences have always run smoothly and the food is very good. We were upgraded to a suite with a working fireplace on one of my stays at the hotel, which was lovely.

We came to The Boars Head for a mini honeymoon following our wedding this past Saturday. It was so relaxing! We stayed in the Hunt Club and will definitely choose to stay there next time. I got a wonderful massage at the spa and my husband played golf. When I was finished at the spa, an employee gladly drove me...

We visited on the spur of the moment and chose this hotel at random. The property and grounds was just beautiful and everyone there was very warm and welcoming! The room was large and modernized with the only slight knock being that the shades aren't room darkening so sleeping in is a bit difficult... other than that highly recommend!!
