The Sycamore Guest House is exactly what I always imagined a Bed & Breakfast would be like. It was decorated in a very classic and traditional manner which is exactly what we expected of our visit to York. It was very nice. Spiros and Elizabeth were wonderful. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay there again.

The guest house was one of the high-points of our stay in York. The room was cleaned every day and had everything we could possibly need. Even a small heater, hair dryer and 10 sachets of coffee (replaced daily). Normal hotels give you 2 at most and make you beg at reception if you want more. The towels were fresh... More

My husband and myself stayed here for three nights recently and were delighted with the room, the situation in regard to seeing York and the lovely couple who run it. The breakfasts are really excellent and everything cooked to perfection. A few minutes walk to the Minster and all other places of interest and yet the house is incredibly quiet... More

I stayed one night in this guest house. I walked to it from the train station. The scenery is great. You have to cross the bridge on the river. I showed up without reservation and got a better rate including breakfast. The Greek owner greeted me and did his best to help me get the best out of my stay.... More

The location is good. A 5-min walk to the city centre through a lovely park. Close to the train station if you know the short cut. The Full Breakfast is huge and delicious. the room we stay is very clean and tidy, not big though but decorated nicely. We stayed at room 5 with private toilet outside the room. Elizabeth... More

Feel like you are a part of the Family when you stay by Elizabeth and Spiros. The room we had was quite big and looked very old-fasioned. Space for clothes, suitcases, hairdryer, tray with tea/coffee and biscuits, even a bowl with sweets. Television and a small sofa. Small bathroom with soap/dush soap. The Internet is free and Works well. In... More

This guest house offers a quiet location in a nice big house just outside the walls of historic York. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the level of cleanliness is excellent. My bathroom was a bit small but not a problem for a short stay. They also provide you with a car park permit to leave your car just... More

Just got back from a lovely night away as a birthday treat and enjoyed our stay here. The five mins walk through park is brilliant but its a good fifteen mins back if park gates are locked (8 pm) The owners are really nice and nothing is too much trouble for them. The room we stayed in (7) was quiet,... More
