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.

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

Disappointed with this guest house as it's in a lovely area within easy walking distance of the centre. In need of some tlc and a refresh. Decoration needs a refurb, tired and old. Not as clean as expected plus it was so cold. 4 degrees in York and heating barely made a difference. It is such a shame as our... More

The walls are paper thin and if you stay on the top floor it is certainly most unpleasant. Before I go further I want to stress the lady running it is lovely and I hope this tough review helps .Dave A describes it very well as dirty and cramped The room for three is not a room for three.

This is our third visit to Sycamore Guest House over the last 10 years and we found it as welcoming this time as the previous times.
