“Warm and cosy stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

It was my first trip to Sydney and I was really glad I chose this B&B. I stayed here for 9 days. The owner is very helpful and made my stay a very pleasant experience. It felt more like staying with a host than just a B&B.
Location is good with public bus direct to Circular Quay, a light rail station minutes away, and 15 mins walk to the Sydney Fish Market. There are many cafes, local grocers along the Glebe Point Road with inexpensive eats. There is also a very nice park nearby for those who like to take walks or jog.
Room is clean, nicely done up, and beyond my expectations. The owner is fast in meeting my requests too.
What is really nice is that the owner gave pretty good advice on local attractions and ways to get around for me, especially since I was on partial business, and I do not have a fixed itinerary on things to do.
Overall, this is a great B&B to stay. However, please take note this is a fully non-smoking facility.

Room Tip: There is limited room, so please email to ask before you book!

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
