From arrival to checkout, my stay at The Madsen was everything you expect from a boutique hotel – warm, personal, cosy and well-appointed. To hear the waves on the beach directly opposite my room (apartment 1) was wonderful. Already looking forward to my next stay!

Stayed in the top front room (closest to road but with views of the ocean) overnight. Lovely (small but practical) room. Very clean. Simple but nice breakfast to have with the Penguin beach view. Great location. Lovely owners.
