Mainly I go back to Southport visit old friends. I have stayed at Bowden a number of times in the past few years. It was great on the first visit and standards have not slipped. Clean, great breakfast and welcoming. David and Judith are helpful and a mine of information. Long may Bowden continue. Gordon

We stayed 2 nights this October and were really pleased. Warm friendly welcome, excellent advice on restaurants, superb breakfasts, comfortable room with extra touches, and everything spick and span and very well kept. Good to have the personal service that is missing from larger chain hotels. We come to Southport once a year and will book this hotel next year... More

Showed us to a lovely room with absolutely everything you could wish for. Spotlessly clean with the biggest, whitest fluffiest towels I have ever seen. Oceans of tea, coffee and milk in the room (not the usual two... More

Stayed a couple of nights here in August. David and Judith couldn't be more helpful, giving good advice about where to eat and drink. Great breakfast. Handy location. The room was spacious and comfortable.
