This is a lovely, cozy B&B. The walls display fine Aboriginal art, flower arrangements are interesting and well proportioned, and fresh roses from the garden are about. Of course A Good Rest is spotlessly clean, the towels huge and fluffy and the sheets ironed, yet there is so much more. The back yard is a haven of grass, garden, and cozy shaded sitting areas, lit with fairy lights at night. There is a even a pool. Yet these things are not what makes this an extraordinary B&B.
If there is such a thing, Margaret and Alf are natural-born B&B owners. If they ever want a change from running their own, they can open a school for prospective B&B owners and it will be Ivy League. Talking to Margaret is like talking to an old friend, and she is able and willing to go above and beyond in making your stay comfortable. She and Alf are free and easy with information and chat. We got to talking and ended up going out to dinner with them, because it's just that easy to be around them. I would definitely stay here again.
