themadsenpenguin, Owner at The Madsen Boutique Hotel, responded to this review

Check-in time is 2pm, and the guest arrived before noon as I was going to the hospital to visit my head cleaner who recently had a serious heart attack.

The Madsen Boutique Hotel is located right on the waterfront in the small town of Penguin. Formerly a bank, it has been skillfully adapted into a small, but very personal hotel. The current owners are most engaging and take pride in showing their newly-arrived guests around, including outlining some of the building's history in its various previous incarnations. It would...

This Place was great. great location view and value. just the way we wanted to start our holiday in Tasmania. To be honest if this was the only place we stayed id be really happy with our trip to Tasmania. Would return to the area just for here that's for sure.

We really loved staying at the Masden. The staff were so helpful (it was a Sunday night in June and they were great about helping us work out which restaurants etc were open). Our room was very confortable with a great view and the sound of the little waves at night. The breakfast/lounge area is very funky and welcoming and... More

What a gorgeous place to stay. Right on the sea front. Bright and modern and great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Complimentary port an sherry. Rooms were very comfortable and great attention to detail. Breakfast was excellent and all freshly cooked. Recommend anyone to stay here.

We stayed here at the end of a crappy week, we got caught up in the cancelled sailings out of Devonport, we stayed in Devonport for 2 nights hoping to get on a sailing then moved out of town when we knew we were sailing in 2 nights. After arriving at the Madsen we kicked ourselves for not moving earlier.... More

My wife and I stayed 1 night in a lovely room overlooking the ocean, and could not fault it. If you are looking for something special in the way of accommodation this has to... More
