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 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

Pros: lovely operators. Service impeccable. Breakfast is delish and served in a comfortable dining setting downstairs at your preferred time. Little extras, port, brandy, ground coffee, dvds etc. Right on the esplanade across from the giant penguin, walking distance from markets and takeaway food, foxtel for the kids. Cons: Sea breeze is your fan/aircon in the warmer months. Rooms are... More

In such a charming beachside town you might be surprised to discover a shining gem like the Madsen. We indulged ourselves with the 5 star room with balcony and indulgently deep spa bath. An abundance of beverage options including the Nespresso machine were available along with the options of wine,beer, spirits and complimentary sherry or port in the downstairs guest... More
