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

The Sycamore Guest House is very conveniently located for tourism. The house is nestled at the end of a quiet street with parking available for a modest price. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. Several dining options are a short walk away. Our en-suite room was comfortable and quiet and breakfast was delicious.

We stayed at the sycamore on 11 January for 1 night. There we're 4 couples and we all found the rooms good sizes and clean. The hosts of the sycamore were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was brilliant. Thanks for having us

Sadly my recent stay at the Sycamore Guest House was one of the most disappointing accommodation experiences I have ever had. We stayed in room 6 (described on hotel.com, as standard double – 2nd floor). I suggest you avoid this room if at all possible and definitely do not book this if you are looking for accommodation for a special... More

We have just returned from a lovely weekend at the Sycamore Guest House. The owners couldn't do enough for us in order to make our trip special. We stayed in Room 6, which had it's own toilet and was a decent size. The room was cleaned each day and fresh towels and bedding were provided upon request. The breakfast was... More

Two women, traveling alone, found comfort and safety, in this lovely surroundings. I would stay there entirely for a period of time. We were able to do walks to special places like Clifford Towers and the Quilt Museum. Walk back to the Sycamore to rest. Back to town for a Cornish Pastry to lunch and shop at the Shambles. Back...
