Positive Reviews

Excellent breakfast

Positive comments about the breakfast at the Sycamore are frequent, so it seems that the hosts know how to put on a decent spread The full English is a popular choice, but guests enjoy the other breakfast options too.

Nice location

The guest house boasts a good location which will place you within walking distance of many of York’s best-known attractions It’s just a ten-minute stroll to most spots, including the train station, so you won’t find yourself having to fork out for taxis.

Friendly welcome

Guests tend to heap praise on the owners of this B&B who by all accounts offer a friendly welcome and are helpful and attentive throughout your stay Even those guests who weren't particularly impressed by other aspects of their stay had nice things to say about the hosts.

Negative Reviews

Small accommodation

While there are comments about the small size of the bedrooms, most comments relating to size are directed at the bathrooms It seems that they’re a tight fit and offer barely enough room to sit down It’s not so great if you’re anything larger or taller than petite.

Internal noise

Comments about the noise levels are rarely directed at the noise from outside The guest house is fairly secluded, so bar a little noise from kids in the nearby playing fields, you probably won’t hear any external noise The problem is within the guest house and exacerbated by paper-thin walls.

Temperamental showers

Numerous comments crop up about the showers The water seems to be too hot, too cold, or barely there, but never spot-on It’s probably not the best start you could have to each morning The hosts seem fairly sympathetic to this and try their best to help.
