The Two Stars in Alice are the hosts Margaret & Alf . Clean, comfortable and Private are the rooms . The breakfast is amazing, the hosts are personally getting the breakfast prepared for all the guests and with a smile . Genuine hospitality . Alf is a wonderful story teller - ask him about his “ Cyclone Tracy “ experience. They shared their nice bottle of Red wine, fed us and other guests pizzas and most of all we felt like home . We were also invited to baby sit their residence when they go on holidays. Margaret & Alf - your blood should be bottled . Great times wonderful memories.

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!

A lovely, homely place to stay. The perfect place to rest and recuperate in the warm, dry climate. Margaret and Alf are great hosts who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They love a wine and a chat. I felt like I was staying with old friends. Their dogs are gorgeous and always up for a pat or scratch (or cuddle if you’re lucky). My mum and I stayed in the villa. It was perfectly clean and had all the amenities needed. Hopefully I’ll be back soon with my hubby.

Margaret and Alf were an absolute oasis on a very challenging holiday. The accommodation was immaculate, service: warm and welcoming, pool: cool and clear, breakfast to die for 😍 They made us feel like we belonged, our desert home away from home. And they extended that kind, country welcome to the fur baby of the family too ❤ We cannot thank you enough, Alf and Margaret for going above and beyond any expectations 🙏🙏🙏 May you have the most wonderful guests and a fabulous rest of 22!! You deserve it!

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.

What wonderfully nice people and what a lovely oasis to arrive at especially after a long drive. We stayed out the back in the self contained unit which literally has everything. Shortly after arriving we were given drinks and nibbles which was a really nice touch. I think our 2 little dogs liked it there as well. This will be our place of choice next time we come and will stay more than just the night so we can explore the area more and come back for swim at the end of the day. Margaret and Alf are a wealth of knowledge on the region. Thanks to you both for making us feel so welcome.
