We originally chose the Sycamore for the location ( a short walk to the Minster) and for the possibility to park , as we were renting a car while in York (Elizabeth gave us a parking permit for 2 euros per night), which was a godsend.
We were not disappointed.
The room was clean and equipped with all the facilities you would need, including a hairdryer, tea / coffee making facilities (which were replenished daily, unlike many hotels we have stayed in) , and a heated towel rail, which proved very useful.
The breakfast is superb, and served with a smile by Spyros.
The hosts are extremely helpful, providing suggestions for places to visit.
I think the mixed reviews here are due to the fact that there are differences in the rooms. On the last day we changed the room, and it was definitely smaller and less comfortable, so perhaps if we had had to stay there for the week it could have been problematic.
However, I would highly recommend this guest house, which is run by two very special people.
