My daughter and I were touring Princeton and were going to stay at the Nassau Inn but they were booked, and we were so glad they were, and we happened upon the Peacock Inn! The only other place to stay in Princetown and be able to walk to town. It's very quaint, yet modern. There were many room choices, we... More

I want to thank Emmanuel and the staff for making my Birthday dinner one of the best birthday's dinners I have ever had. The service was fantastic as were the vegetarian options that were available. I also want to thank them for allowing Jason Varitek for paying for my Birthday as a great surprise to me. I will come back... More

Don't be fooled. Room was tiny. Could barely fit our luggage never mind us. Nothing quaint about it! Shower was unacceptable as the water dribbled out and it took a long time to rinse. Worst of all was the noise....You can hear the traffic from the road all night and morning, but the noise in the inn was even worse... More

We stayed one evening and had dinner. Dinner was very good. The room was small but adequate. No place for hanging cloths excluding hooks near the entrance so the cloths would fall off when you entered/exited the room.

We stayed in the Penthouse and it was lovely and very large. The room was perfect and the shower and whirlpool tub had great water pressure. Everything was very clean. The staff were all very nice, although I understand what others have said about the service. Many of the staff did not seem to be trained for a luxury high... More

I write this review in the context that I liked the peacock inn. I would especially like it if I were a Princeton parent coming in for graduation. It's not a "get stuff done" type of place but rather a "family weekend in Princeton" type of place. The good: staff very friendly and accommodating. The overnight guy very very kindly... More

The Inn itself is pretty and well maintained, the staff courteous. That's about it. We have stayed in all types of high-end hotels and inns, so I was really taken aback when I called down for a pot of coffee on our first morning only to find this type of service unavailable. I was "welcome" to come down and get... More

The hotel considers itself as a boutique hotel. My experience was diverse. The recently renovated hotel - looking like a prestigious villa along a main road close to the city center of Princeton - seems to be a bit away from superior service. Check-in went smoothly. Cost free parking and a nice bar with an passionate bar keeper were well... More

I have stayed here twice, and both times found everything top notch. Staff was helpful and courteous, room spotless, and while somewhat small, very well appointed. Water pressure great in the shower, and heated floors in the bathroom. The only other option in town is the Nassau Inn, which is grossly overpriced and tired. This place is great!
