Property's Favourite Review
The two of us and our two dogs felt very comfortable and looked after here. The villa is lovely, with everything you need. Margaret and Alf were very accommodating while we were uncertain about when we could travel home. They looked after us extremely well, and we highly recommend staying here. We will definitely stay again when we're next passing through Alice Springs. Thank you Margaret and Alf!

Margaret and Alf were so accomodating to me, my dad and my cat! They are lovely, caring and friendly people, and it was our favourite accomodation between Victoria and the NT. The room itself was very clean, spacious and homely. If I return to Alice Springs I will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!!

A good rest B&B was the best place we stayed on out journey up through the Territory, we booked the self contained unit out the back, it was very clean and comfortable. Margret and Alf had good recommendations for Alice, and were very easy to talk to, it was also great to see our dog Luna enjoying herself and able to relax after a long hot drive. Despite our eagerness to get up really early to get back on the road Margaret and Alf ensured we had breakfast available for our early start. We felt very accommodated for and loved our stay, we will definitely be recommending it!

Very spacious room, clean and modern bathroom ensuite. Lovely English breakfast and nice chat with Margaret and Alf - very informative of local area. Nice areas around with park to walk my dog, and they looked after him while I went out for a beer and feed - what more could a bloke want!

My husband and I went from Adelaide to Alice Springs in the Ghan train. We spent seven nights in Alice and we stayed at A Good Rest B&B. We were met at the train station and taken to our accomodation by Margaret. What a wonderful choice of accommodation. Very comfortable bed, a wonderful breakfast and the hospitality of Margaret and Alf was amazing. We were made to feel just so welcome and part of the family. We had our own kitchen, lounge, laundry and ensuite. We could not have asked for more. Accommodation is so important, it can make or break a great holiday, and in our case totally made it. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
