About Forsyth BnB ...

Forsyth is a delightful bed and breakfast establishment, a “piece of inner-city serenity”, nestled between Glebe Point Road and Blackwattle Bay on Sydney Harbour, located 3 km from the city and 20 minutes drive from the airport.

Forsyth maintains its exterior Victorian façade and has been renovated so that it “unfolds into a double-storey surprise of spacious understated elegance”*.


Forsyth offers two spacious guest rooms, both located upstairs, each with a queen size bed (single/double occupancy), reverse cycle air-conditioning, cable television, and free wi-fi. Check out some of the reviews from recent guests.

Blackwattle has a separate television / reading space and en-suite bathroom, and “a circular porthole offsets the angular ceiling and gives a bird’s eye view of the street”*.

Rozelle 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 also 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. It is well serviced by public transport.

In good weather, breakfast is served outside in the Japanese courtyard garden, alternatively in the dining room with its cathedral ceiling.

Forsyth BnB offers its guests arriving or departing from the airport and the Overseas Passenger Terminal, pick & drop off services.  This service is convenient, time and cost effective particularly for guests arriving in an unfamiliar city. To avoid disappointment, please make your request at the time of booking.

We are conveniently located, as Glebe is a City of Sydney village suburb, close, within 3 kilometres, to all the major tourist icons,  such as the Opera House, Harbour Bridge the Rocks , Botanical Gardens, Circular Quay ferry terminus, Darling Harbour, the Sydney Fish markets and city centre shopping. 

There is on street parking facilities in Glebe, but we recommend for your time exploring Sydney using the excellent public transport systems available, bus, rail, ferries and trams, which are more time and cost effective, like most major cities, than car transport.  Guests hiring a car to go on to visit the Blue Mountains, the Hunter Valley or explore wider a field in Australia, we can provide transport services to and from the hire car company of their choice.

We hope you enjoy your stay at Forsyth Bed & Breakfast.
