The Madsen

Penguin - North West Coast

This boutique hotel has justifiably won a number of awards, from Trip Advisor, the Luxury Travel Guide, Lonely Planet and Cradle Coast Tourism among others, and when you see the splendid room you are staying in, you will see why. Centrally located, this is perfect for a seaside holiday.

All rooms have their own private bathrooms, complete with shower, complimentary toiletries and a hair dryer. Some also have a bath, or even a jetted tub. Beds range from king and queen-size to singles and a sofa bed, providing sleeping space for between two and five.

All rooms at The Madsen are non-smoking and include tea and coffee-making equipment, free wireless internet, a direct-dial telephone, a television, Foxtel, a DVD player and even a personal bar. Some have a leather sofa, complimentary bathrobes and, especially if you go for the Penthouse Suite or Waterfront Apartment, stunning views over the Bass Straits.

Parking is free, and the reception staff are happy to help with any tour or ticket booking for events and places of interest in the Penguin region, and just ask if you need an iron or ironing board. There is also room service, luggage storage and laundry available, and a crib can be provided at no extra cost.

You can have breakfast at The Madsen for a small fee, and the hotel has its own bar with a fairly spacious seating area. The town of Penguin itself includes six cafes and a pub, as well as a Thai restaurant and, for one of the finest dining experiences, Casablanca, where it is strongly advised that you book in advance as the place is incredibly popular.

Penguin boasts a wide range of seaside attractions, including safe bathing beaches, a lengthy promenade, two lovely parks which feature some of the most spectacular flower beds and also a miniature railway. The towns of Burnie and Devonport are between ten and twenty minutes away by car, and it only takes about an hour to drive to Cradle Mountain.

Offering direct access to the beach, this Penguin guesthouse is in the historical district and within a 15-minute walk of Penguin Undercover Market and Penguin General Cemetery. Dial Range Forest Reserve and Hellyers Road Distillery are also within 12 mi (20 km). Penguin Station is 6 minutes by foot.

Guests of this beach guesthouse will appreciate convenient onsite amenities such as spa services or barbecue grills.

All 6 individually decorated rooms feature free WiFi and pillowtop beds. For a bit of entertainment, guests will find flat-screen TVs with cable channels and DVD players, and other amenities include minibars and room service. Housekeeping is available on request.

Whether it be sleeping to the soothing gentle sounds of breaking waves or waking to the best sunrise in Penguin - this is a fantastic place to stay. Walking distance to a number of restaurants in the Main Street. I asked Phil about the key/access to the front entrance and he told me that this is a boutique town where security isn’t an issue - how refreshing - a must stay and we will return.

We stayed here for our anniversary! We had the Penthouse suite, which was just beautiful! Very spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful view out to the beach. The bathroom was large and the spa was amazing!

A great room with great service. I would certainly stay here again if I was in Penguin for work or as a couple. There are loads of facilities including free port and coffee- a nice touch. The staff were great and the check in and out process was pleasant and easy.
