Another excellent stay with Gary and Julie. Unfailingly welcoming, warm and engaging. Nothing is too much trouble, attentive without being intrusive. Enjoy the best breakfast on offer with blueberry pancake to die for! They have created a calm oasis near the heart of Sydney. Strongly recommended.

I've just completed a three night stay at Forsyth bed and breakfast. A real home from home. The personal attention I received from Gary, the host, is at a level never experienced at "Larger" hotel chains. Nothing is too much trouble for him A great choice is given at breakfast time, but the Buckwheat pancake is a "Must!!" 11/10

This 5 star hide is perfect for people like me who do not like big five 5 hotels. Gary is a great host and provided all the insights to sydney and Glebe township making the drive from and to the airport very enjoyable. The location is also perfect for jogging along the waterfront park to the fish market and ANZAC... More

This is our second stay at Forsyth B&B. This stay was just as good as our first. We arrived a little later than planned and Gary made us a lovely pot of tea...just what we needed after battling the Sydney traffic!! We stayed in the Rozelle room which is spacious and comfortable. The view at night over the city lights... More

There are two rooms to choose from, the Rozelle room and The Black Wattle room, I have stayed in both. The Rozelle room has a balcony and offers a great... More

All the good things you read are true - Forsyth BnB is really a five-star stay! Hosts Gary and Julie go out of their way to make your stay perfect! Make sure to book early because they only have two rooms. When I booked this Bed and Breakfast eleven months ahead of our March, 2016 trip the larger of the... More

We stayed with Gary and Julie last week for our last two nights in Australia, and it was the perfect way to end our vacation; in fact, I wish we had been able to arrive at Forsyth B&B earlier in our trip. Gary was extremely accommodating in making our reservation, as I had to contact him a few times with... More

Sydney was the start of a three week holiday , leaving a normally wet July in NZ. We had not been to Sydney for probably 30 years. It is a dynamic bustling City and rather than get swallowed up by a very large hotel complex, we utilised Trip Advisor to check the options. Very glad we did as it sifted... More

My son Sebastian had found Forsyth B& B for me. After nearly 4 weeks in Down Under this was not only the last of my accommodations, but my " champion". I remember Gary saying " It is all about service", and he delivers the very best in every respect. He and his wife offer a wonderful place, and Gary gives... More

Staying in Glebe

Neighborhood 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
