This is a small inn that looks on the outside more like a house than a hotel. On this inside, it is fully refurbished and reflects a high standard. Room was very nice, but a bit small. The bar and restaurant has a great feel. Fantastic Bartender and the food was outstanding . Very nice surprise- World class and convenient... More

Stayed in the Inn one night and enjoyed the food immensely. Great location. Nice staff. However, the room we purchased was miniscule. No room to place a water glass on the side table as there was no side table. No chair. No desk. No closet. Had to toss the suitcases on the floor and live off the floor. No closet... More

Our overnight stay was memorable. While poking around on TA at first I saw only big chain hotels and was glad to find the Peacock Inn, which was well reviewed and close to the university. Upon arrival we were surprised with an upgrade (I’m a Choice Hotels member) and were blown away by gorgeous room 204, which was large, elegant,... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Peacock. The restaurant was so good that we ate here two nights in a row - fun bar (when it's open) with great drinks. We stayed on the top floor in a king room (delux). Great sheets, amenities - the pillow was a bit hard for me but the bed was... More

Just returned from a weekend away in Princeton. We stayed at the Peacock Inn and loved it. The room was small, as expected, but very "high end" furnishings and bathroom.

The Peacock Inn is a charming little B & B within steps of Princeton University. My husband and I stayed in room 207. It was small but packed with many amenities. Great linens, amazing spa shower with five heads, robe, slippers, TV, bedding, super comfy bed and lovely decor. SUPER clean! Wish they had fresh flowers and not silk arrangements... More

I'm not a big B&B fan. Too much faux charm, too few amenities that matter, no bell service, and all provided at a premium price. But the Peacock Inn, has almost all of the bases covered. First, the rooms are nicely appointed in a pleasant contemporary style. And the bathrooms -- at least ours -- was well above average in... More

The new owners have taken this lovely old Victorian in Princeton and restored it by keeping the vintage charm but with some clean, modern touches. The inn is just beautiful. We came for dinner on a cold, slightly snowy night. A lovely romantic spot, and the food and service live up to the setting. Dishes have a unique flair, and... More

I chose to stay at the Peacock Inn recently to see if I might prefer it to the usual Nassau Inn, and I very much did. Far smaller, quieter, personable, with a warm and friendly staff. Easy walking to campus and town, and while I didn't partake, the restaurant gets raves from every local I spoke with. Bedding and towels... More
