I stayed in this b&b one night,room Bellucci,not bad but not so clean!hair in the bathroom and in the carpet,dust and the tray for the tea was dirty..dont want to talk about how dirty was the minibar!I arrived at 3 pm,in the web site I booked there was not check in time,I called the owner and he looked quite upset...he said was coming in half an hour,but someone(not him) open the door after an hour,we were waiting outside in the rain!he arrived and he was quite rude and the only thing he said was:"hi you are too early!"He did not believe me when I said that in my reservation there was not arrival time and he said the room was not clean...he sent us away because we could not stay in the house to wait for it.When finally entering in the room did not smell as fresh cleaned so...we had to pay everything in cash plus €3,5 per person..did not even checked our passport!after that he became quite friendly and nice and I even checked my email in the pc in the living room for free...what can I add?fortunately for him does not do this for living

SycamoreBB, Eigenaar at Sycamore, responded to this reviewResponded 12 February 2014

This guest has absolutely overlooked our check-in time from 17h00 to 23h00, which has always been clearly stated by all our booking channels on their respective websites and which has not changed since the start of Sycamore. Furthermore we don’t understand why the guest literally states, that she waited in the rain….simply because there is a good shelter at the entrancedoor of Sycamore (as can be seen clearly on photos here at TripAdvisor).
Nevertheless we feel sorry for the guest and we can understand certain frustrations and it’s consequences (unfortunately also a biased and overly negative review….!).
But of course everybody can be mistaken at times. And for this reason we have implemented a solution now that makes check-in easily possible apart from the official check-in time.
With regard to hygiene visitors can simply convince themselves by taking a close look at the hygiene scores of Sycamore as shown in the other 8 reviews here on TripAdvisor : 3 x the maximum score of 5 dots, 4 x a score of 4 dots and 1 x ‘clean’.

We stayed 2 nights here during the Marathon Eindhoven 2013. The place is lovely and host very warm and helpful. Great location with a short walk (10 min) through a quiet and exclusive neighborhood to the train station and everything else.

Sycamore - Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Stayed at Sycamore for one night, the reasons that I spend one night at Sycamore are: A. Location B. Early flight from Eindhoven Airport. Sycamore is an old mansion in a stately avenue within 10 - 15 minutes walk from central station. The rooms are clean and with sufficient amenities, water boiler, Nespresso coffee maker, radio and alarmclock. In the common room you will find an computer to check your flight details or public transportation details. In the kitchen, also common use, you will find equipment to prepare your dinner and in the morning you will find your breakfast served ... The landlord offers all comfort you find in a good hotel and the cosiness you find at home ! Next time I have an early flight, I will definitly stay at Sycamore !

Very enjoyable stay at Sycamore B&B. Great location. An easy walk to Eindhoven main railway station. And only a short walk from restaurants and shops. Beautiful peaceful road. Great back garden which Jeanne, our eight year old daughter, enjoyed.
Very spacious and airy. Warm friendly atmosphere. And Jos our host was very helpful.
Hope to stay here again. Would thoroughly recommend it.

We spent one night here. The b&b is very nice and it's not far from the train station. It is also very clean and comfortable. It was nice to meet Mr Jos.
But we didn't like the fact the he made us pay 69€ + tourist taxes: total 86€, BUT he did not give us any receipt for payment. So, we're asking if the Netherlands' government will ever receive that extra "tax".
