We recently had the great pleasure of a 5-night stay at this lovely B&B in the lively and eclectic Glebe area of Sydney. Absolutely loved everything about our stay, except that it was too short! The hosts, Gary and Julie, are a friendly, helpful, interesting and accommodating couple who are both highly educated and well travelled. It was a delight... More

Number 1 for a good reason. Lovely room, awesome breakfast,great experience. Gary and Julie were perfect hosts Whether offering advice, a bit of local knowledge or booking a doctor for you. If ever back in Sydney we will be checking on availability.

It has been a little over a month now that my husband and I had the opportunity to enjoy three nights at Forsyth Bed & Breakfast. So as to not be redundant by stating all the positive experiences we had while staying here, I will just say that our stay was fabulous and add a few more thoughts. Arriving to... More

I've stayed in many bed and breakfasts, and appreciate the character and personal attention/advice that they provide. Rarely have I stayed in a B&B that is also extremely comfortable - and beautiful. Forsyth is completely renovated, artistic, and I'd happily live there on a permanent basis. Our bedroom (the largest) was HUGE, with a balcony that overlooks the city. We... More

We have stayed in bed & breakfasts around the world, and it would be hard to find a better one overall than Forsyth. From the time our host, Gary, picked us up at the airport until three days later when he dropped us off at our Oceania cruise ship, we could not have had a nicer stay. We are foodies,... More

We stayed at Forsyth BnB for just over a week, so I think we know it well. I completely agree with the comments from previous reviewers about how brilliant it is. I won't give an extensive description as this has been provided already. I will just comment briefly on why I think it is so good. Well the obvious reason... More

We stayed with Gary and Julie just after Christmas for 4 nights, we were made most welcome and could not fault anything. Our room was very well appointed and the bathroom modern and immaculate. Gary's breakfasts were a highlight and delicious, incorporating the best fruit platter ever! We would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay in Sydney.

top class B&B with large rooms, fabulous fresh breakfast (with welcome focus on fruit, pancakes etc - much better suited to Sydney summer than Full English!), extremely comfortable beds and good banter between Gary - your host - and guests over breakfast. Gary is also a fount of info on Sydney and will get you organised. Follow his tips on... More

We kick started our honeymoon with a stay in Sydney. We had a perfect stay at Forsyth. Gary was a true gentleman making us very welcome and ensuring our stay was special one. The breakfast was well thought out and simply delicious. Gary had lots of super tips which will of course will remain a Forsyth secret, but meant we... More

Our two-night stay began with a pre-arranged meeting with our host, Gary, at the airport. This was a good way to begin what was a very enjoyable stay in this beautifully-appointed, small and very high standard B&B. Other reviewers have commented on the tasteful artwork and the well-appointed rooms. We also enjoyed the garden outlook and waking up to a... More
