We had just an overnight stay after arriving on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry. The hotel has a very convenient location, and our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I would highly recommend a visit to Penguin, especially if you are taking the ferry, and the Madsen has a great location within the town.
Note that the hotel does not have parking, but there is plenty of free parking in the public car park a few doors down.

Stayed in waterfront suite upstairs [accessed by some very steep stairs] which had a direct view to the sea which was a good start but overall the ‘suite’ was very poor. On entry the room smelt ‘stale’, the carpet needed a vacuum, dust on the fireplace and surrounds, bed linen needs updating, the towels were terrible, very thin and rough, did not need to put any cold water on in the shower as water was lukewarm, toilet not clean, hand basin tapware poor quality, the sink plug was all stained and the fan above shower was full of dust and very grimy, toiletries provided very poor. Not a deluxe room by any standard which was disappointing, did not enjoy our stay.

We stayed overnight in the deluxe room. Very comfortable, even had a sideways Seaview from the loo. This hotel is on the main road and in walking distance of everything. Plenty to offer and the coffee and honour bar would be enjoyable in non COVID times. Very comfortable.

Coming in from a cold, blustery, rainy evening was pleasantly welcomed by Phil, a warm fire and soft music. Our room was on the first floor of this delightful heritage hotel with a pleasant view over the Penguin foreshore, a wild ocean and a sunset. Perfect to relax after a long journey. Bed was comfortable and crispy white. Check out the hotel's rich history on the walls of the staircase.

Try El Perro just down the road for dinner - excellent tapas and free glass of sangria - compliments the Madsen.

Room tip: Choose the room with the foreshore view.

We spent a very comfortable two nights in this hotel. Situated in the main street, it was just a short walk to cafes and restaurants and next door to a supermarket. Complimentary coffee and fruit were available. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at local eateries recommended by our hosts. Recommended!
