Superb package: a quality boutique hotel experience. Prompt, friendly, helpful communication from Gary who has in-depth local knowledge of the area, traffic, dining and local attractions. The B&B is a top-quality redevelopment masterpiece behind a quaint terrace frontage. Gary's professional background in hotel design is showcased in his quality facilities and superb use of space. I especially liked: charming hosts;... More

My husband and I stayed with Gary and Julie at the Forsyth B&B for 5 nights in March and could not have been more pleased! Gary's pickup at the airport (in the middle of a storm and downpour) was very much appreciated and provided a totally non-stress way to begin our visit to Sydney. Julie gave us a wonderful orientation... More

This is the second time we've stayed and we will be making sure we come back every year. Glebe is a great spot and Forsyth is so well located to some good spots in Glebe but also to get to the city. We always stay in the Rozelle room and love the size and natural light in that room. The... More

We stayed 3 nights at Gary and Julie's bed and breakfast in Sydney. It was wonderful. The house was simply lovely with two beautiful spacious rooms with bathrooms to match. Breakfast was a feast with so much scrummy food we could not get through it all. The hosts were hospitable and really kind and thoughtful to our 12 year old... More

Our four days at Forsyth bed and breakfast were wonderful. Gary and Julie are the perfect hosts in their beautifully restored terrace house. Delicious breakfasts in the Japanese garden, airport shuttles, and other services made our stay hassle-free and so much more enjoyable. Thank you both. We will be back.

I can see why the Forsyth B & B is Number 1 on Trip Advisor, lovely location, beautiful accommodation and extremely helpful hosts. The breakfast supplied is enough to get you through the day, and at night the views of Sydney from the balcony are spectacular. Will we stay again? no hesitation, Yes.

Gary and Julie have thought of everything and provide the most well-designed bed and breakfast in their home. We loved the art and the interior design and everything was well presented, including the healthy breakfast. It is a very central location and easy to get around on public transport without the hassles of traffic and finding a parking space. It... More

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
