We have stayed here several times while visiting UVA. The resort is lovely. The grounds are beautiful. The tennis facility is top notch. The rooms are well appointed. The restaurant is good. The service is always exceptional. I look forward to staying here again.

Experience excitement and entertainment at this resort . The Boar's Head Resort rooms were elegantly appointed, and the on-site Boar's Head Resort offered endless opportunities for fun and excitement. The resort's restaurants and bars were also top-notch, ensuring that there was never a dull moment during our stay.

Fabulous friends weekend!

A wonderful place to gather with friends - all the amenities you could wish for! We had a delicious dinner in the Mill Room and enjoyed the incredibly comfortable beds and quiet rooms. We were delighted to learn they had dog friendly rooms with a first floor walk- out option! We can bring our pet next time! Loved the eco friendly touches, such as wooden (instead of plastic) key cards and reusable water bottles in the room. I look forward to returning!

Not worth the hype or cost

Boars Head Inn will continue to thrive due to the captive UVA audience, not because of anything special they do to entertain or treat their guests. High prices, old rooms and aloof staff have cause many of our fellow UVA parents to not stay the Inn even though our fraternity formal takes place here each year. The high cost and mediocre accommodations do not justify the convenience of staying on site. Each year, we book a Resort King room 11 months in advance of our stay at the Boars Head. Each year, they try to give us a room level we did not reserve or pay for (last year it was a tiny room right next to the elevator with no view). This year, they first wanted to give us a room in the main building without a balcony. From their website: RESORT ROOMS Located in four distinct buildings, our Charlottesville hotel rooms feature balconies, sophisticated furnishings, modern amenities, wireless internet access, and much more, all to be enjoyed during your relaxing and restorative stay in Virginia. When I asked to be in the building we requested 11 months prior (when the resort was not even remotely sold out), they informed me that I could not have one of the rooms I reserved as there would be no room for those guests arriving tomorrow to stay in when they showed up the following day. I mentioned they could stay in the incorrect room they were trying to give me and their response was, "Oh, yes, you're right". When given a Resort King room, we immediately noticed there was no workstation in the room. Even the basic Motel 6 has a desk and chair. In these days, when many people work remotely, it is imperative to have a desk and a place for your laptop. Sitting on the bed doesn't cut it. Also from the Boars Head website: Resort King: These classically composed rooms are complete with king beds, work stations and views of our well-manicured resort grounds. To top it off, after the first night we woke to a bathroom floor covered in 100's of ants. We had no food in the room or bathroom. All of the ants were coming up through a hole in the floor like a parade. We did not want pesticides sprayed while we were staying in the room so we resorted to killing the ants ourselves. Over $1,000 for three nights with no desk, a bathroom of ants and an old room clearly not properly maintained. Do not recommend.

Just like home!

We are staying for the first time in the Main Inn and it is lovely! The room and bathroom are roomy and so nice. The staff at the desk and in the Mill Room are friendly and helpful. It is nice being away from the craziness of the Corner! We stay here every time we visit.
