      Did not get the room we booked.”

      We were ‘upgraded’ to a 3 bedroom apartment, which was further down the road, not near our friends. We found out late at night that the toilet was blocked and there was no hot water. We had to stay in that room overnight and were moved back to another room at the original facility, but had to wait until midday. We were not offered a refund for the previous night. In the new one bedroom self contained unit, the bed was a mattress and base directly on the floor, so was quite low down to the ground and in the bathroom you have to step up into the shower. If you are elderly this a hazard as you have to lean on the sink for balance to climb out of the shower as there is no bars to hold onto. There was also cobwebs around the room in the corners....... it’s a shame that we didn’t get the room that we booked originally as we had friends who stayed in the main building and they said it was lovely.

      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.
