One of only 2 hotels walking distance to Princeton. Walls are too thin and can hear neighbors easily. Nice breakfast included. Front desk often doesn't answer. Room refreshments/minibar offerings are plentitful but not inventoried correctly. Be sure to count on arrival to avoid charges. Bed is comfy. Nice robe and slippers. Nice linens. Super nice warmed bathroom tile floors.

Pleasant Stay
The Peacock Inn is a cozy, comfortable place to stay. Upon arrival no one was at the desk for about 5 minutes, and a phone number left there offered no answer. Finally someone arrived and helped me check in . The room was very comfortable. There IS some street noise, and there is no elevator. The parking behind the building is minimal and if the Inn were full there may not be a space. The breakfast (continental) had nice pastries, yogurt, instant oatmeal and granola with high end teas and coffee. The staff was helpful. There is an onsite restaurant that serves an afternoon tea and dinner but it is closed on Mondays.

We appreciated the location and the friendly staff. Our accommodations had some problems: Even when we called for help, there was a problem with the TV and there were no directions regarding the 2 remotes. A dim light over the bed made reading in bed a challenge. The drawer in one night table rolled open and would not stay closed. There was no rack near the sink to hang the face towels.

Charming Luxury
The Peacock Inn is a charming, small inn centrally located in Princeton. It’s an easy walk to the main shopping street as well as the Princeton University campus. The staff were friendly and responsive. The inn is very clean, the beds extremely comfortable with quality bedding. Lovely Molton Brown toiletries in a sizable bathroom with a terrific shower. I wasn’t able to eat in the restaurant due to a private gathering, but it’s easy to order food on an app and have it delivered. Also, there are many good restaurants within walking distance. The bartender was kind enough to make me a very, very good vodka martini in spite of the private party. I’m looking forward to staying here again the next time I’m in Princeton.

Lovely inn with a correctable flaw
Peacock Inn lovely. Small, elegant and beautifully renovated. We checked in late Sat night (9:45 pm) after family dinner. Young gal at front desk put us in room 302 and did not say anything about it being a third floor walkup. We subsequently learned there are no elevators b/c inn is very old. Would have been much better if she had noticed that we are elderly (husband in 80's, I'm in 70's) and asked if we minded walking up to third floor. We would have asked if there was a room available on second floor which would have been better for us. But she didn't seem to pay any attention to us as individuals. Would have been appreciated if she had said, "It's a third floor walkup. We have a room on second floor, a bit smaller; would you prefer that or...we have no other rooms available tonight but we'll carry your suitcase upstairs for you." But nothing was said, not a word, which resonated with us that she was unconcerned and lacked basic graciousness. Luckily a male staff member near the desk noticed us and offered immediately to take our suitcase upstairs which we appreciated. We chalked it up to the gal's lack of experience and youthfulness, but it is also showed her lack of training which is the inn's responsibility. In our opinion, it is important to train staff to focus on guests as individuals and think about situations from their point of view. It would have set a much better tone at checkin.
