Didn't know what to expect at a "pet friendly" b&b. But after a long drive for the two of us and our two dogs we were greatly surprised to find an immaculate setup with welcoming hosts. We could throw the ball with our dogs in the lovely yard, and the detached room was well presented and clean. Hosts Margaret and...

Margaret and Al are very nice hospitable people and you feel right at home. The rooms are clean and the beds are good. The bathroom is beautiful with a shower and a large tub.

On our long trip through Australia, this is a favorite place to us. The Hosts of "A Good Rest" were more than helpfull to make our stay comfortable and full of interesting experiences. Even an evening out together with another guest. Perfect for the days between outback trips from Alice Springs. Had three nights, will stay next time longer.

My wife and I had one very enjoyable night with Margaret and Alf in this lovely B&B. The B&B was spotless, the beds very comfortable, the breakfast beautiful and it was all topped off by Margaret and Alf's company. We have stayed in B&Bs all over the UK and Europe and this is as good as any.

Our hosts organised pre-dinner drinks with...

Delicious breakfast. Lovingly furnished bed- and bathroom. Perfect B&B for a short stay in Alice Springs. You have the feeling to be part of the family within a few minutes. B&B is not located in the center, but they offer private pick-up service.

We were there in august 2015, only for one night - unfortunately. We had the pleasure to have dinner with our hosts and to discuss about a lot of things : very kind people. we have appreciated this approach. PS - this is a private B&B with some rooms. It is NOT a hotel.

Margaret and Alf were fantastic hosts, felt right at home. They gave plenty of local knowledge and even offered to drive us around. The rooms were big and clean. Breakfast was nice and home cooked, ask for anything you like.
