Forsyth Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 57 Sydney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Our four days at Forsyth bed and breakfast were wonderful. Gary and Julie are the perfect hosts in their beautifully restored terrace house. Delicious breakfasts in the Japanese garden, airport shuttles, and other services made our stay hassle-free and so much more enjoyable. Thank you both. We will be back.

I can see why the Forsyth B & B is Number 1 on Trip Advisor, lovely location, beautiful accommodation and extremely helpful hosts. The breakfast supplied is enough to get you through the day, and at night the views of Sydney from the balcony are spectacular. Will we stay again? no hesitation, Yes.

Gary and Julie have thought of everything and provide the most well-designed bed and breakfast in their home. We loved the art and the interior design and everything was well presented, including the healthy breakfast. It is a very central location and easy to get around on public transport without the hassles of traffic and finding a parking space. It was also surprisingly quiet and amazing to lie in bed at night with a view over the rooftops to the city. So much better than a boring hotel and Gary and Julie are the perfect hosts.

Room Tip: Bring your walking shoes- you wont want to drive anywhere.

We stayed at Forsyths as a couple from the uk, for a 3 day trip to Sydney,whilst visiting friends in the Gold Coast.
We knew that from the reviews that the B & B would be great but it exceeded even our own expectaions.
We stayed for first 2 nights in the Rozelle room & the Blackwattle room for our last night as for our last day the Rozelle room was already vacated but it was no trouble for Gary & Julie to do this & they moved our things for us.Both rooms were fantastic, i loved the Balcony in Rozelle & loved waking up to the sound of parrots in the trees.
The breakfast was amazing, it was great to wake up to, everything was so fresh.
Nothing was too much for Gary & Julie, they went through trips with us & places to visit & Gary helped us to get a bus ticket for 3 days which was well worth the money if your travelling around.
Their house is beautiful, it was so relaxing being there.
Glebe is a great location, sydney centre is a short bus ride away & Forsyths is a 5 minute walk away to the beautiful harbour.
We would definetly recommend a visit to Taronga Zoo.We ate in some great places and would recommend the thai restaurant Gary & Julie told us about.we ate in the skytower revolving restaurant for our anniversary, pricey, but you get what you pay for.
I have to mention Bakus, Gary & Julies cat, as he was beautiful.
Overall we cant say a bad word about Forsyths & i could say plenty more great things.
we would reccommend it to anyone.
Thank you Gary & Julie

I travelled here alone on business. What a treat to have been able to walk out the front door, down the quaint street, to enjoy a harbour-front stroll! I visited in February -- when temperatures at home were -20C -- so a walk in the sunshine where neighbourhood residents were walking their dogs, jogging, enjoying conversations with coffee outdoors was a breath of fresh air! Nearby Blackwattle café on the point is lovely, and there are some good hangouts within walking distance that Gary and Julie will tell you about. Photos are entirely accurate, breakfast is excellent. Place is recently renovated and in a nice area three quarters through gentrification process. My room had complimentary water, sitting area, and some terrific toiletry products with a clever name. Of course I can't remember that name now, but I do remember really enjoying the handsoap especially....

Room Tip: If you like to sleep in the dark, bring blinkers. Skylight in my room (the "blackwattle"...

Thank you for your review.
The Blackwattle Cafe is located in a heritage building in Blackwattle Park, it is in a unique position with lovely views over the water and serves great coffee, and only a 5 minute walk away!
The toiletries at Forsyth BnB are hand-chosen - the ones you enjoyed were made by Trilogy.
The Blackwattle room does have venetian blinds built into the skylight window, which guests can activate to provide blackout conditions at night. The porthole window also has its own custom-made blind. Thank you for pointing out that you were not aware of the inbuilt blind facility, I will make sure that guests are aware of this.

Ended our 3 week Oz tour in Sydney and had the wonderful pleasure of Gary and Julie at Forsyth B&B looking after our every need!
Great minds of information for what to see and where to visit, tips on best use of travel arrangements for the city.
Drop off to the airports were also a great help.
Gorgeously clean and welcoming.. breakfast was fit for a king!!
Recommend this B&B 100%
