The accommodation overviews and most of the reviews seem pretty accurate - so if you're looking for a guest house, with all its quirks and a great location in York then its a perfect choice. I was in Room 6 which is at the very top with the bathroom (shower & toilet) partitioned as a room in the corner -... More

This is a wonderful and friendly little guest house. First things first, this is a guest house, not a hotel, which means you get all of the quirks of a guest house. Our room was cozy and comfortable and was tidied mid way through the day (which was a nice plus and not common in past guest houses I have... More

I found the SycamoreGuest House on booking.com but will book direct next time and there will be a next time. We arrived a bit earlier than anticipated right in the middle of breakfast but after a quick pre warning phone call we were able to get a parking permit, park up right outside and enjoy A full day prior to...

An excellent guest house in a superb position. The couple who own the guest house were just wonderful. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms were clean and just perfect for a long weekend break . We would highly recommend the Sycamore.

Elizabeth and her husband made us very welcome from the beginning. She handed us a map and explained how to get to and from the town. Breakfast was fantastic. Full English and cereal.

Just returned from a two night break,stayed in room 2, very old fashioned decor, shower, non existent, tried to shower in the morning, water stone cold, not very good for a 4 star establishment. The bed was comfy but could do with a bigger duvet, breakfast very good, excellent hosts, Elizabeth and Spyros, thought the charge for cards was wrong.

We stayed for one night in September to combine a visit to the theatre with sightseeing in York. When we arrived we were made very welcome and shown to our very comfortable room. The location is great with an easy short walk to the city centre. Being able to park outside the property is a great bonus. The breakfast was... More

Elizabeth & Spiros couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating and made us feel very much at home. We were offered sherry and mince pies on arrival at their warm and cosy home. The room was a good size with a comfortable kingsize bed in which we slept soundly. It is an old building and we could hear muffled voices... More
