Charming”

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 the newly-arrived guest around, including outlining some of the building's history in its various previous incarnations. It would appear that the current owners have also upgraded the hotel's decor. We stayed in the least expensive room of the 4 or 5 on offer and it was very pleasant. As the hotel has very few rooms, it's not practical for the owners to offer full bar facilitites, so they have provided an 'honesty' self-serve bar instead which genuinely provides a hotel 'feel' as opposed to a tourist B&B. Our breakfast was excellent. Eggs cooked exactly as we asked, and the bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes were perfect. A little less than perfect was our bathroom ... it was a bit 'tired' and offered only a shower. But we would certainly stay there again as there is much to like about this quaint little gem.

Hidden gem in Penguin”

Room, View, Service

We had a fantastic time staying in the Penthouse suite at the Madsen. The room is large with all the amenities needed and a fantastic view looking over Penguin beach.Phil the host was very friendly and helpful. The town of penguin is sleepy, Beautiful and a great base to experience the north west coast of Tasmania. The madsen is on our list to do again for sure.

The best in Penguin!”

Comfortable room, great breakfast, nice staff

Having traveled for quite a number of hours, this is definitely the one you can recharge your energy. The room was so nice that makes you feel like home (with Foxtel!) together with the lovely spa. Sadly Monday and Tuesday most of the restaurants in Penguin were not open, and we had to drive to the nearby time, but just need 15 minutes only. Moreover, the breakfast there was something you could not miss - lovely scramble eggs with beacon and baked tomato. Speechless!

Stylish, welcoming, good location on NW Coast where there are limited options of this standard.

The Penthouse is especially stunning, but more expensive. Train line does run at the back of the hotel.

Fine, but I didn't need to book through Agoda. I don't know how that happened. The result was I paid an unnecessary premium and will ensure from hereon I book directly.
