Stayed one night at the Peacock Inn. Had a great experience. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Place seemed a little small from the outside, but once you went inside it felt a lot bigger. Bar area looked very classy, I didn't get a chance to check it out but I would like to go back. The free continental breakfast...

We stayed here with our son on a trip to see Princeton, we booked the hotel last minute by email on a very busy weekend ... the Princeton Harvard game. Olivia could not have been more helpful, room 304 was gorgeous and it was ready when we arrived at midday. She even organised complimentary tickets to the game, a massage,...

My husband and I booked two rooms here last weekend to celebrate our marriage and to thank my parents for their help before they flew home. We were upgraded from a king to a suite. The rooms were beautiful, the amenities stunning, even down to the Molton Brown toiletries, nothing was overlooked here. Every member of staff was courteous, polite,...

I love this place! This is the 4th time I've stayed here and I love it. As a choice member, I hope they upgrade us next time to a deluxe king as the queen was a tad tight, but I love the location, the restaurant, the awesome bar/bartender and the rooms are cute. Shower was awesome too. Another great stay...

This inn blends modern comforts with old-fashioned charm. If stairs give you trouble, steer clear, because there are no elevators. You'll tote your bags up narrow staircases in this old inn, but a cozy room will reward you at the end. The room size was fine for me, but had I been traveling with my spouse, I'd have found it...

We staid at this hotel while visiting Princeton University . This is really a charming place more like a country home than a regular hotel. The "inn" is appropriate. It is well located, 15 minutes from the university, and the room while not very big are quite comfortable. They must have been redone quite recently as they have all the...

Stayed here this past 4th of July weekend. The place is really quaint, service is excellent. It's great to have breakfast included and the option of dinner and/or drinks in the same location. Super convenient to the heart of Princeton and its many shops and restaurants. I didn't use my car the entire stay. Room was quiet, agree with others...

This is a wonderful place to stay in walking distance of so much that Princeton has to offer. The rooms are very tastefully appointed and the staff is very friendly After a delicious dinner in town which we could walk to, it was a pleasure to end our evening with an inventive and tasty cocktail at the Peacock's bar.

“The rooms aren't huge, so I'd recommend picking at least a king-size bed.”

“Once travelers want to book a quiet room it need to be a room not at the front side. Rooms for two people need to provide sufficient space for wardrobe.”

“Ask for a room with a nice fireplace.”

“I think that unless you opt for a suite, which I did not see, al the rooms are too small. If you do stay there, ask for a room that is not on the side facing the road. It's a main road going into Princeton, with a lot of traffic.”
