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...

Penguin is just east of Burnie and a quiet little seaside town. The Madsen is a former bank which has been converted into a number of units, and it sits right across from the beach. Lots of facilities including the downstairs bar which runs on the honour system, free WiFi and as much plunger coffee as you can make. This...

The web site describes the Madsen as "Situated in the heart of the Penguin Coast in majestic North West Tasmania with breathtaking views over Bass Strait." - we could not agree more! Snuck away for a night with my wife, being able to leave the kids with their grandparents for the evening. We stayed in the Penthouse room which was...

Happened upon the Madsen by chance and ended up in the best (and most expensive) room in the house as a special treat to finish off our holiday. Room was great except for having to climb steps to get to the bathroom - a challenge especially in the middle of the night in the dark. Also we were there on...

Not impressed. Arrived at 3.30pm and no one at Reception. Rang and after 5 minutes was guided through the front door to the ground floor room. On opening the door ( towards you in narrow hall, trying to get suit cases through the door wasn't good, small because the bed and stool were at the door. Once inside, door opened...

We are deeply sorry this guest was unhappy with his stay with us. Reception is usually attended, but when not attended, we send a text message to guests who have made a prior booking, giving them the access code into the hotel, with their keys, check-in form and breakfast menu awaiting them at the reception counter. I do recall this...

Stayed here in a std room overnight for a school reunion, the rooms are lovely (Std room small so I would upgrade next time) but just lovely. Everything was well appointed throughout the old bank converted into a hotel and they had an honour system with the bar. Wow only in lovely Tassie can you do that! The port and...
