We selected Forsyth Bed and Breakfast based on the TripAdvisor reviews and we're so glad we did. Our first visit to Australia was amazing and, in large part, we credit Gary for his extra attention to every detail of our stay. The accommodations were beautiful and the gourmet breakfasts each morning were delicious. Gary was very helpful with recommendations regarding what to see (and how to get there), money exchange, and restaurant suggestions and reservations. Staying in Glebe made our trip even more fascinating since we had the opportunity to experience a lovely Sydney neighborhood as well as the attractions located in the central business district and harbor areas which are within walking distance. One advantage to being pedestrians is that we saw so many interesting places along the route to downtown (e.g., coffee shops, restaurants, retailers, the Sydney Fish Market...which is not to be missed!). We also found the public transportation to be very convenient, reliable, and fast. Gary made us feel so "at home" that it was difficult to leave. If you're spending any time in Sydney, Forsyth B&B is an outstanding choice. With such a lovely and comfortable room, convenient location, incredible breakfasts, and Gary's helpfulness (and daily fun conversations), our visit to Sydney really was a stellar experience!
