My son Sebastian had found Forsyth B& B for me. After nearly 4 weeks in Down Under this was not only the last of my accommodations, but my " champion". I remember Gary saying " It is all about service", and he delivers the very best in every respect. He and his wife offer a wonderful place, and Gary gives...

We stayed at the Forsyth for three nights when a friend in Glebe was struck down with flu and we needed somewhere to stay. We certainly fell on our feet here. Try and book the Rozelle Room - the views from the balcony are impressive, especially the sunsets and city lights at night. Gary is an excellent host - welcoming,...

This was an excellent bed and breakfast experience by every measurement. The room / home, food, service and hosting were done exactly the way it should be done in a top BnB. We spent 5 nights with Gary and Julie as an introduction to Sydney and Australia, and we were sad to leave them to move on to our next...

The advice, assistance and willingness by Gary to assist us on our recent visit to Sydney certainly exceeded the usual role of a B&B host. The Forsythe is a beautiful home and well located, being close to public transport, restaurants and bars and within walking distance to Darling Harbour and the city. The home made breakfasts were delicious and generous....

My husband and I stayed at the Forsyth for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend.

We had a wonderful stay at the Forsyth B&B. Gary could not have been more welcoming or helpful during our stay. The breakfast was truly scrumptious. We would highly recommend Forsyth and we shall be back again soon.

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
Glebe
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BOOKINGS ONLY AVAILABLE DIRECTLY WITH FORSYTH BNB. Forsyth is a delightful boutique bed and breakfast, a "piece of inner-city serenity", nestled between Glebe Point Road and Blackwattle Bay on Sydney Harbour, located 3 kms from the city and 20 minutes drive from the airport. Forsyth offers two spacious quiet guest rooms, both located upstairs, with no common walls. Each has a queen size bed, its own bathroom, reverse cycle air-conditioning, cable television, and free wi-fi. The Blackwattle Room has a separate television/ reading space and en-suite shower room, and "a circular porthole offsets the angular ceiling and gives a bird's eye view of the street". The Rozelle Room offers a full size bathroom (with double shower, bath and bidet) and a private balcony with views out towards Anzac Bridge and the city. Glebe Village has numerous restaurants which cater for every taste. Blackwattle Park with its beautiful foreshore promenade along Sydney Harbour is located a minute's walk from Forsyth, and Sydney Fish Market, a working fishing port, is close by. Forsyth is well serviced by public transport, and close to many local attractions including Chinatown, Star Casino, Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay Wharf, Sydney Aquarium and Sydney Powerhouse Museum. The Rocks and the Opera House are a short bus ride away or a walk for the hearty. In good weather, breakfast is served outside in the Japanese courtyard garden, alternatively in the dining room with its cathedral ceiling. Pick-up/drop-off at Sydney airport or cruise terminals is available on request. In order to avoid disappointment, please book early. We hope you enjoy your stay at Forsyth BnB. ... more   less
