Wish we had more time to explore and enjoy the property. We were only in town for a quick overnight. This is a resort property. Beautiful approach. Check in building was charming. Staff friendly. We had to drive to building which was also nice from the outside. Did not see any elevators to our room's level which was in what...

I was here for a conference. Our staff was excited when we heard we was having it at the Boar's Head Resort this year. We arrived to bagged lunches which I enjoyed the sandwich.

The Boar's Head Inn offers friendly, helpful front desk service in the beautiful Virginia countryside. Guest rooms and public areas are both beautifully appointed and comfortable. The one downside was service in the dining room seemed slow and a bit inattentive at breakfast and lunch although there appeared to be ample staff present.

Came with my wife for a conference. They mistakenly charged my wife's credit card for some meals and then refused to reverse the charges! Truly astonishing, unprofessional and dishonest behavior. This was our 3rd time staying at this hotel, but it will certainly be the last. And we will definitely let the conference organizers know as well, so that next...

Very nice hotel. We stayed with our 2 children in adjoining rooms. The rooms were very nice but the hallways and entranceways need upgrading. Some of the activities were very expensive. They had hot air balloon rides but for our family of 4 it would have cost $1,000 for a one hour ride.
