Margaret and Alf welcomed four of us into their home like family members, doing our dirty laundry, booking a restaurant ,storing our luggage and even on the second occasion taking us to the airport when our taxi would have been too late. Wine and nibbles as well and a delicious evening meal can be ordered in advance. Many thanks.

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly at A Good Rest. The self contained villa was extremely comfortable, clean and we couldn't have asked for me! Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. We would certainly stay here again!

Margaret & Alf took us warmly on, calling us at the last moment a ballooning and gave us good tips for a short visit to Alice. Margaret surprised us with many German words. The apartment was luxurious, the pool relaxing and the evening there was a glass of wine. A personal experience was the common, costly breakfast after ballooning. We... More

A Good Rest B&B is located in a residential area of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. You are really in the Outback of Australia here. I would describe A Good Rest as more of an Airbnb accommodation than a traditional bed and breakfast that I am used to back in the States. Margaret and Alf have converted several parts... More

What a great find! Way better than a hotel. Margaret and Alf make you feel part of their family. Clean comfortable accommodations , accessible to everything in Alice Springs and reasonably priced. Our hosts were more than willing to offer suggestions for restaurants and sights. If you like that personal stay-at-a-friends-house touch, this is the place for you!
