This is the second time I have stayed here, the first being in 2011. Nothing has changed, the breakfasts are great; the hosts are great and the décor is nice. The only drawback is that the single rooms located on the top floor are very very small. In fact they are the smallest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in.

We were welcomed with a nice filter coffee and chat in the very comfortable lounge which was nice after a long drive. The hotel is immaculately clean and well decorated. Our room was nice and warm, nice bathroom and very well presented. The bed... More

On arrival we were... More

Free parking onsite, free wifi available in my room which was great. The hosts were very welcoming and my room was nice and warm on arrival. The next morning the breakfast excellent - couldn't ask for 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!
