Decided to stay here 2 nights with our 87 year old mam. Just like home from home, David and Judith were lovely and supplied us immediately when we arrived with tea and biscuits after our journey, it settled us in great. Nothing too much trouble for them. Rooms great, breakfast tasty. Great for mam as only a short walk to... More

Can't recommend this place highly enough, check it out for yourself. Lovely room, superb breakfast, Judith and David very welcoming as ever. We have been coming here each year for the past five or six years and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Southport.

Stayed at Bowden Lodge Hotel for a weekend break. Judith & David were very welcoming, tea on arrival and booked a reservation for us at a local Italian restaurant. Accommodation was spotlessly clean, breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of off road parking. Would definitely recommend.

Our first visit to the Bowden Lodge hotel, Southport which my wife and I found very comfortable, clean, great breakfasts. The owner David and his wife waited up for us to arrive as we were delayed in traffic . We had a bedroom on the top floor which was a family room so large and very comfortable and immaculately clean.

I have stayed here a number of times. It remains a really great place to stay. Clean, well run, home cooked breakfast is high quality (poached eggs are great!). Friendly, helpful owners are also a mine of information. If you stay here, I'd guess you 'll return.

Having stayed at Bowden Lodge a couple of times now, it genuinely deserves the excellent reviews. It's one thing to be attentive and give decent service but Judith and David go beyond that and take a genuine interest in their guest's welfare. Especially as a young couple, who can often be viewed with suspicion when checking in to smaller hotels... More
