An indulgent night away by the ocean is what we were after and that is what we got. All the rooms look lovely but I must say the penthouse with the balcony views of the ocean is by far the best! Definitley worth the extra $$. Amanda was a wonderful host, nothing was too much bother, showed us to our... More

We stayed for one night in room 6 while on a brief trip to the NW. The Madsen is a lovely boutique B&B Our room was huge, light and bright, spotlessly clean, extremely well appointed, quiet and tasteful. The breakfast was delicious and generous. The plunger coffee and complimentary port is welcome and of course the staff were friendly and... More

A beautifully refurbished old building that's made the most of its heritage combined with a fantastic modern feel. We had an exec spa room. Lovely view to ocean and great space. All good amenities and great spa bath. Friendly staff, generous culture and nice breakfast (included). The only annoying feature was the door security system to the room. Overly sensitive... More

Beautifully restored bank overlooking Bass Strait. Felt like mediterranen hotel. Gourmet breakfast, rooms well appointed. Gorgeous retro shops and town. Highly recommend if passing through Penguin Tasmania

we stayed 2 nights. On our arrival we were warmly greeted and given all the information necessary for our stay. Our room was beautifully decorated in the latest modern decor. But most importantly it was so wonderfully clean. It also had a spa bath. I loved the state of the art locking system to our room. Free DVD hire, free... More

Wow. Friendly welcome, room overlooking beach (room 1) great touches like free dvds and decanter of port. Decor is contemporary and it's spotlessly clean. Common areas are very welcoming. The town of Penguin has a beautiful beach a market every Sunday and a few dining options. As a first overnight stop in Tasmania it's a great start. Definitely recommend.

Stayed at The Madsen for two nights in August 2014. Situated in the North West of Tasmania , the town of Penguin is quaint and pleasant. The Madsen , originally a bank building, is impressively situated facing the Bass Strait. We stayed in the Ocean Room which was fine.( As it was mid winter though it became quite cold at... More

My partner and I stayed one night in the Penthouse. Friendly service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were shown to our room and explained how to operate all the gadgets, very helpful. Free DVD hire with a variety of movies to choose from. Breakfast included in rate, you order in the evening and we... More
