If you are looking for a place to stay on the NW Coast (i.e. anywhere between Devonport & Burnie) this is the place to hang your sombrero for a night or two. This is my 3rd stay here - 1st under new owners - it's got even better - the rooms are well furnished - bed linen nice & crisp - A cooked brekkie is part of the deal - E&B done just right. But one suggestion get rid of those awful Kraft jam sachet thingos. I like my marmalade - but that Kraft "stuff" is just bland yellow jelly with one or two tiny specs of orange peel. Go to the local CWA shop for the real deal.
Next time I'm up this way I'll definitely stay 2 nights @ Madsen. Use it as a base - maybe day trips to Cradle Mountain & Leven Gorge, & then up to Stanley & his Nut & Woolnorth & Cable Station ( great lunch spot). And back in cute little Penguin-by-the-Sea you have got Wild Cafe ( still good) and Casablanca - 2 km along Preservation Road towards Burnie at the Surf Club. I have heard Casablanca is fab - must give it a go.
