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

This has been a local attraction for those who visit Princeton. It is a small place and advanced arrangements should be taken. It is quiet and more in the lines of a B&B. There have been some long term residents or note. Ask for a history of the place.

The rooms are distinctive with various quirks but the beds are all plush, the Frette towels and toiletries are top quality and the restaurant is one of the finest in Princeton. The bathrooms are cramped. But there is no better option for quality hotels in the area. The location is convenient to Princeton.

We had an extended family birthday to celebrate and wanted someplace a bit special. Princeton doesn't have many options so we decided to give the Peacock Inn a try. Disappointing and mediocre.
