Stayed for a week. Judith and David were very friendly, welcoming and knowledgable about all the region has to offer. Cooked breakfast to order everyday. Rooms are small but very comfortable. Within walking distance of downtown restaurants. A number of spectacular championship golf courses within short driving distance. Definitely recommend staying here.

We were made very welcome and enjoyed our stay. The room was very small with a massive bed in it taking up too much space! Bathroom also tiny but quite adequate for a short stay. Breakfast individually cooked and very good

A second visit to Bowden Lodge. Judith and David are truly welcoming and helpful. The rooms are immaculate. Breakfast is freshly prepared and served at the table. This hotel is very well located in a leafy road, close to all amenities and makes an excellent base for visiting the area.

We were in Southport to see relatives and had stayed at some of the bigger hotels and been disappointed but this small hotel is a gem. Friendly and clean with everything you could want in the room and very close to the main attractions.

Stayed here 29/5/14. We were made very welcome, David even insisted on carrying the luggage. Rooms are perfect, no noise, slept well. Lovely breakfasts. Central location for main shopping street. We had no problems at all with this hotel. Highly recommended.

What a lovely friendly hotel. I stayed here two nights on a business trip and I was made to feel very welcome. The hotel is spotless. My single room was very comfortable with ample supplies of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits! I had an evening meal each night and the food was superb. Wonderful English dishes! Will be back...

We booked this accommodation by chance, it was also very central to Lord Street and it's attractions. A very nice touch was the offer of tea or coffee on arrival, you don't get this in a posh hotel, last time this happened was in a B&B in Ireland.The owners were very attentive and helpful,with tips of where to eat out...
