It was our first trip to Sydney and we only had six days so it was important to find just the right place that was convenient to public transportation which led to Sydney sights, reasonable (by Sydney standards) and a pleasant place to stay. Forsyth B & B met and exceeded all of these. The owners are delightful, helpful, provide wonderful breakfasts and make you feel right at home. Our room and bathroom were very clean, modern, comfortable, well lit and plenty of space. We were a block and a half from the bus line and close to restaurants and small stores. The owners provided us with a map and information on the local sights and restaurants. They were really helpful getting any additional info we needed to make our daily sightseeing go smoothly. We look forward to a return visit to Sydney and the Forsyth B & B again without hesitation.
