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....

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...

Never been to Penguin and the Madsen was the only accommodation we could find. It was such a wonderful surprise. The host Phil was friendly and knew his stuff. We wanted for nothing. Breakfast was amazing. The room we had was smallish but lacked absolutely nothing. It was clean, comfortable and very quiet.

Staying here one night and this was the best welcome we have received. Madsen has a policy that if the room is ready you can check in and do not have to wait until 2pm in the afternoon. The manager is very professional and steps you through the security, bar, and how things work. The hotel is on the road...

The manager phoned during the morning to alert us to a problem. We were double booked and the others booked first. Oh, oh. He offered us a bigger suite, a reduced tariff and our choice of a bottle of wine to compensate. We accepted. He then sent us entry details so that we could check in when it suited us,...

This is a lovely little guest house on the Main Street of Penguin opposite the beach. Our room was very quiet, big enough even with an additional fold out sofa and two cots, the bed was comfy and it had a nice enough bathroom - it didn't have a view which was fine as we weren't planning to be in...
