My first time in Sydney and I really couldn't have picked a better location, property or host. Gary was welcoming, full of good, quality information and very easy to get along with. Allow yourself a leisurely breakfast and enjoy the sumptuous, varied, quality food that Gary prepares. This will set you up for a great day in Sydney. The property...

From being picked up at the airport to being dropped off 4 days later our stay at Forsyth BnB was first class. Gary and his wife are the perfect hosts with a wealth of knowledge to make your stay in Sydney comfortable and hassle free. The breakfast was the best we had in our month long trip to Australia!

We stayed 2 nights at Forsyth B&B and had a lovely weekend. Gary is a great host. He greeted us with a smile and showed us around. The house is beautiful and our room was very comfortable. We loved sitting outside on the balcony enjoying a drink looking over the city. The location is very convenient yet is just far...

My wife and just checked out after a 3-night stay, and we were quite pleased. The Rozelle room was very nice, roomy, nice terrace with colorful birds to listen to in the mornings. Breakfast was great. The first morning I ordered bacon and eggs, not knowing how much other food he was preparing--about 8 kinds of fruit, plus bread, banana/fruit...

Gary and Julie were wonderful hosts. It started with Gary picking us up at the Cruise ship. When new to a city, it is nice not to have to try to find your way around. Gary insisted that he carry our luggage up to our room on the second floor. The Rozelle Room was beautiful with a wonderful porch with...

From the moment we were met at the airport to final drop off our three nights were a delight. Gary and Julie provided a relaxed and bespoke high quality home from home.

We booked the B&B as a result of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we reserved the accommodation a full year ahead because it was peak season. The tariff rates are double over New Year but this is common in Sydney. A plus for us was being collected at the airport by the owner Gary, which we were grateful for....

After unsuccessful attempts to reserve lodging in downtown Sydney, I booked early October at Forsyth B&B for nine nights during the New Years holiday, receiving a discounted rate based on our lengthy stay. Gary picked us up for $40AUD and, at the end of our stay, dropped us off at the airport at no charge. The B&B was impeccable in...

Excellent location in Glebe: all sorts of restaurants within walking distance (ask Gary to book you in...), only 20mn from the Central Station (by bus), 15mn from the Fishmarket, etc. A very pleasant and extremely refined home, totally unlike your average bed and breakfast. Breakfast is superb, one of us is a coeliac, and we've never had such tasty gluten-free...

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
