We stayed here for 2 nights and were able to eat locally and walk into central Sydney from here. It's in a quiet residential street in The Glebe, where we could leave our hire car parked with a permit from Gary, the owner. He was very helpful in making itinerary and restaurant suggestions, even taking my husband to the nearest...

My wife and I had the good fortune to stay at the Forsyth for a total of 5 nights in two separate visits to Sydney in October 2015. The hospitality and service provided throughout was consistently excellent. The owner Gary is a wonderful host and really does go the extra mile to make your stay extra special. We were visiting...

I really enjoyed the few nights I stayed at the Forsyth. This place is a little gem as well as its owners and their hospitality and service orientation. Everything is clean and perfectly organized (incl. transfer). If you are interested in it you can learn a lot about Glebe, Sydney and Australia from Gary and Julie - but in any...

Had a nice stay here but honestly I don't think this should fall under the 'Sydney' location category. The reviews I read looked like it was pretty close to Sydney and walking there was not a big deal. What I found was it took 20 minutes by bus each way and racked up the maximum daily bus fare. That meant...

ForsythBnB, Owner at Forsyth Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

I have referred this review to TripAdvisor for investigation, as my booking records do not support this review being authentic, as no guest stayed at Forsyth BnB in October 2015 on business nor did a guest stay from Hobart. Forsyth BnB is a small boutique bed and breakfast, offering 2 guest rooms and personalised service. This allows us to have...

A small (2 guest rooms), clean and comfortable establishment, operated largely by host Gary with charming assistance from his wife Julie, and relief driver and manager, also called Gary. We found host Gary is genuinely interested in his guests welfare, and reasons for visiting Sydney, ever ready to assist and make suggestions. Forsyth B&B is located a short walk to...

This place is a real gem. We had the good fortune of staying for a few nights in each of the rooms and loved them equally. Gary and Julie were gracious hosts. Such smart, witty, fun people. We looked forward to breakfast every morning -- not only because it was FABULOUS and would have cost $$$$ in a restaurant, but...

As a couple sometimes its nice to have a little getaway together. We were restricted with available time so wanted something close to the city of Sydney for a fun weekend. Well if we had sat down and made a list of ticks for must haves Forsyth filled the bill. Accomodation is spotless. Breakfast was delicious. Hosts were there when...

We stayed at Rozelle Room for 3 nights and Blackwattle room for 2 nights. We definitely preferred Rozelle Room. So many birds around the neighborhood, we heard loud bird singing as soon as we got up.

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood 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
