“Wonderful self-contained unit, superb hosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2010

A great place to kick back and relax in Alice. The accommodation was spacious, new, clean and fully equipped. Our hosts were most helpful, picking us up at the train station and taking us to the store to buy some provisions. A Good Rest is about two or three kms from the town centre, which is a good thing, but a bit of a walk if you don't have a car. Oh, and take some cash, no credit cards accepted when we were there.

I really enjoyed my stay at A Good Rest B & B. Margaret and Alf were both very charming and welcoming in their lovely home. The facilities were spotlessly clean and their home is extremely well appointed.
The bed was very comfortable and each room is indiviidually air-conditioned and heated to your desire.
I loved the towels. They are huge and soft and there is plenty of hanging space in the bedroom.

A Good Rest is an immaculately clean and comfortable B&B on the ouskirts of Alice. Alf and Margaret are extremely friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home. They treated me like family for the few days I stayed with them. Margaret will make you whatever you like for breakfast and will cook you an excellent meal at night if you ask her. A great place to stay in Alice!

Staying at Good Rest B&B was the most luxurious place that we stayed at during our time in Australia. The service was excellent and we were looked after to a very high standard. The room was fantastic, very clean, spacious and we had plenty of facilities that made our trip. The location was within walking distance to Alice Springs, excellent for shopping and cycling. The hospitality was first class.

The owner/operators Margaret and Alf provide one of the most welcoming, comfortable and appealling B&Bs I have stayed at within Australia or out. Great hospitality, rooms, brekky, conversation, local directions and advice .....the lot. Nothing was a trouble. We felt completely at home. They beats any 5 star swank hotel in the area. Great place. Highly recommended.

Stayed during relocation from Darwin to Canberra. A great oasis on a long trip. Alf and Margaret held our reservation despite being stranded by floods north of Alice. Spacious, modern and REALLY comfortable. Everything is provided, just step out of your car and into your home in Alice Springs. We (5 adults) stayed in the queen room in the main house (one couple) and the spacious private villa (couple plus teenage son). Help with tour ideas, offers for prepared lunches and a great family meal made this a special stay during a pretty rough trip.
