We have been coming here for a number of years to see family, and we love staying here! It is spotless, warm and welcoming, and David and Judith go out of their way to look after us. The kids love it, and are made welcome, and the breakfasts are a highlight for them (the adults don't turn up their noses... More

I had to attend a funeral in Southport in February 2015 and stayed for 3 nights. David and Judith were so kind and nothing was too much trouble for them. The Hotel is warm, friendly, comfortable and spotlessly clean, I frequently visit the Southport area and in future will be staying at Bowden Lodge - Thank you for your hospitality!

First time visit. Stayed for 2 nights to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hosts, David and Judith, were very pleasant and welcoming including giving my wife a card and chocolates. The hotel was clean and well maintained and the breakfast was excellent. If you're looking for a great place to stay in Southport, this is it!

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

Bathroom was spotless and modern, with complimentary shower gels etc. The bed was comfortable and there was a flat screen TV on the wall with plenty of channels available. The breakfast was fantastic, full selection of cereals and continental... More

Found this gorgeous small hotel just off the main shopping street. The proprietor, David, made us very welcome with tea and biscuits. 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
