A lovely B&B in the 'Bohemian' suburb of Glebe, with nice restaurants nearby and an easy bus or light rail ride from the centre. The suite was very comfortable and the breakfast delicious. A great welcome and excellent advice from the hosts. Why would you want to stay in a hotel when you can stay here?!

We stayed with Gary recently at his very comfortable home for 5 nights, at the start of our Australian tour. Gary had been very helpful to us during the planning phase of our trip and this continued throughout our actual stay, with plentiful advice, help with transport to and from the airport and many other kindnesses during our stay.

We spent 7 nights at the Forsyth B and B, it was the best we have ever stayed in and it enhanced our stay in Sydney. The bedroom was large with a very comfortable bed and a lovely modern bathroom. There are views from the balcony towards the Anzac bridge and the CBD. It was easy to get to Circular... More

Simply to agree with all the other comments - the breakfast is superb with much home made fare, the rooms are fantastic and the location is good - a pleasant leg stretching walk into Sydney CBD across Pyrmont Bridge, or take the light railway. And most exceptional of all, you could not ask for more friendly and helpful hosts than... More

There was nothing that could be improved about this holiday experience: the room was attractive and very comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding, including home made banana bread, blueberry pancakes, two types of yoghurt, two types of muesli, a vast array of fruits and great tea and coffee. A cooked breakfast was also on offer! The location is ideal, in an... More

Thank you very much Gary and Julie for the wonderful time in your little paradise! You were great hosts! During my long stay at this lovely B&B, Gary and Julie gave me a lot of helpful advice. Every day I enjoyed Gary's delicious breakfast served in the charming garden! I hope to be able to stay there again!

We arrived from Singapore on an overnight flight, exhausted. We thought we were only dropping our bags off, as arranged, but Gary and Julie not only welcomed us, gave us a cup of tea, but also managed to get our room ready right away, even though the departing guests were still about. The room was lovely, spacious and airy, with... More

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
