It was quite difficult to do this review as there were many positives to this place and clearly York is struggling to get back on it's feet after the winter floods so business is hard. However I have to give a mixed review for the Sycamore. We arrived and received a really warm friendly welcome from Spyros, who was a really nice, funny guy. His wife also was very friendly in a genuine way. We stayed in Room 1 which had two other rooms directly above it. It was very noticeable that the decor was dated and needed a freshen up. For me that wasn't a problem although my wife was less forgiving. The bathroom was quite small and the toilet and shower cramped which wasn't helped by a poor extractor fan. The water pressure in the shower was at best below par and the temperature would frequently go from hot to freezing. The bathroom facilities and state of the decor have made me rate the place a lot lower than I otherwise would have. The bed was big and comfy, the breakfast was absolutely fine - help yourself to fruit, cereal and yogurts as well as a traditional oven cooked, non-greasy English cooked to order and decent coffee too. The location was excellent, lovely five minute walk through museum gardens to main centre. The parking at £2 a day is great value. Let me be clear this is a nice BnB if you like something old fashioned BUT the bathroom facilities and appearance are important and these were not great, especially for the price.

A fantastic find.
Very friendly quiet guest house. Fabulous cooked breakfast made even better served with a smile.
The location is perfect for the station and walking through beautiful museum gardens into York.

The owners were very helpful and obliging. The large bed was comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best we have had: non-greasy, hot and well cooked. Good supply of tea and coffee, also sweets and a packet of biscuits. The toilet in the ensuite is in a corner by the shower but this did not cause any problems. Easy walk to city centre, either along the roads or through attractive gardens. We would consider staying here again if in York in the future.

A mixed review for the Sycamore.

We arrived and received a really warm friendly welcome from Spyros, who was a really funny guy, absolute character. We were way earlier than check in so went out for the day and returned at 5ish.

We were welcomed back and shown to our room on the top floor (room 6). Couldn't help but notice the dated nature of the decor. For me that wasn't a problem I actually felt it fitted in nicely with the feel of York but it could be an issue for some people.

Now here is the problem - In the room the ensuite was nothing short of awful. The shower and toilet were in such close proximity that you could probably have had a shower and use the loo at the same time, you couldn't really shut the door properly when sat on the toilet it was that small. The water pressure in the shower was at best below par and the temperature would frequently go from hot to freezing. The hand basin was in the room which isn't great. The bathroom facilities of the room have essentially made me rate the place a lot lower than I otherwise would have. The bed was comfy with a lovely feather duvet and pillows.

The breakfast was absolutely fine - help yourself to fruit, cereal and yogurts as well as a traditional fry up to order. decent coffee too.

The location was excellent, lovely five minute walk through museum gardens to main centre. The parking at £2 a day is great value.

Let me be clear this is a nice BnB if you like something old fashioned BUT the bathroom facilities are important and they were really poor.

Nice staff, good position, good breakfasts.
Dated and felt like a b&b from 20 years ago, bit of a shock when you are used to modern hotels and b&b. Needs a good refresh, repaper and modernisation. Not good value for money, but not much choice in York if booking late.
