I highly recommend the Forsyth bed and breakfast for anyone who wants a nice and comfortable experience in Sydney. The location was perfect for us. Glebe is a nice suburb yet only short bus ride or walk across the bridge to downtown. We stayed a 6 nights with Gary and the service was superb. The house is beautiful. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and quite, and the breakfast and conversation with Gary was something we looked forward to every day. Even though there were no rooms available at Gary’s place on our first day in Sydney, he picked us up at the airport and drove us to our hotel in the downtown area. The next evening he picked us up downtown and drove us to his place. Being our first time in Australia, I think Gary went above and beyond for us. He made sure we knew all about local customs, tipping practices and transportation. He recommended activities and restaurants and helped us to make the most of our time in his city. He even did some research and made reservations for us. Gary really knows how to take care of guests.
