We had a really nice stay at the Madsen. The bed and bed linen were super comfy, and the owner (?) Phil was very accommodating and friendly. The view from the seaside rooms is superb, right on the beach. Highly recommended.

Hi Crystal If you are visiting Tasmania (which I'd highly recommend), then the best way to see it is with a hire car. Tassie roads are quiet and signposting good. A hire car will give you the freedom to see some of the... More
