      On hotel.com it’s advertising you can check in at 9am but when we got there they said it was 2:30pm😒 so was impressed. I was not the fault of the guest house they said they hotel.com would let them change it! Also after a 2-1/2hour drive we asked if we could use a toilet and where told we had to use the one in town! Other then that room was comfort and clean. Breakfast was amazing and where very attentive!

      This little hidden gem is just outside the walls of the old city of York, yet is walking distance to all the historic sites and to the train station. The building is a quaint old house. Our room was clean, comfortable, and exquisitely decorated. The full English breakfast was delicious. The hostess and host were helpful with advice, accommodating and kind!

      The Sycamore Guest house was perfect with a beautiful and comfortable room along with a yummy English Breakfast each morning. Quaint old English charm with modern conveniences. Close to the rail station and perfect walking distance to all historical sights in York! Elizabeth and her husband were wonderful hosts and would stay here again!!

      The hosts of the Sycamore were just delightful. They made us feel like a cross between guests and family. Elizabeth cooks each guest’s breakfast to order and the food is delicious and beautifully presented. It is an easy walk into the city from the Sycamore and they made sure we were armed with a map and instructions.

      The bedroom we had was on the small side and the en-suite was very tight. Never the less we managed. The bed itself was not the most comfortable. Breakfast was excellent.
