We booked the penthouse and were not disappointed! Fabulously appointed with those extra things to make you feel special. Auto close drapes, sound system , huge flat screen TV, heating, comfortable bed, sensational spa and bathroom...classy interior decor. Just loved the two nights here and the chance to relax looking out over the ocean..totally uninterrupted views. Awesome!!

We stayed here for 8 nights during a basketball tournament, and the location, facilities and staff are amazing. Could not have asked for more welcoming or friendlier people than the staff of the Madsen who went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be The hotel is SO cute, but the view for breakfast is worth...

I stay here every 3 months for work. It is a lovely break in the middle of the a very busy week. I book the "penthouse" and it is wonderful. The bed and bedding is really nice and so comfy. Have and would recommend to travelers. Don't miss this little gem.

Stayed at the Madsen a year or so ago in a large ground-floor room. The room was amazing; large, spacious and very modern considering the older style building so I was looking forward to returning during a work trip. However, I was put up in a small upstairs room this time and it was quite the opposite. There was mud... More

We welcome all reviews, as we continually strive to improve our customer service. First, this gentleman’s mini-bar expenses remains outstanding after six weeks and we do not understand why he is reluctant to settle his personal account. Perhaps this colours his review that is so out of synch with the majority of glowing reviews we have received? Regardless, we do... More

We stayed in the downstairs room which was the old bank complete with bank vault the view was stunning with comfortable bed and beautiful linen. This is luxury plus. Check in was easy and the hotel is very secure. Breakfast was lovely and with the beach straight across the road sitting in the sun was delightful in the morning. When... More

This was a lovely spot for our first night in Tasmania. Comfy bed, clean and modern bath room and delicious breakfast. Easy driving distance from Launceston airport. More important than all of these was the hosts attitude. There are people that shouldn't be in the tourism industry but the lady here was great. Anything you need let me know! Thankyou.... More

We stayed in the beachfront spa suite. Beautiful and spacious accommodation for all four of us. The bedroom, dressing room and bathroom were huge. The view from our room was gorgeous. Phil was a wonderful host. Would defiantly recommend to all.

Stayed for a night in the Beachfront Spa Suite. The room has style and class with the heritage of the room being retained. The wardrobe was the original vault and the bathroom is large with a corner spa. More lighting in the bathroom would be of benefit. The view from the room makes you appreciate how beautiful our coastline is.... More

We very much appreciate the excellent suggestion made by this reviewer, to the point that we took action the following month. While we took action three months ago, I am remiss to respond so late to a good news story. Specifically, we investigated the lighting in the ensuite and came to the same conclusion as this guest, namely, that it... More

We arrived and were made welcome, we were in the penthouse which is a lovely suite overlooking Bass strait. The staff were all helpful and the breakfast excellent. Overall really good value. We needed to do some washing, this was done for us overnight!! As a place to stay 10 out of 10!!
