I am not one for writing reviews normally, but in this case I will make an exception ! I arrived in Southport on business last month and stayed at "The Bowden Lodge" for four weeks. From the moment I arrived, to my departure, I was made very welcome by the owners (David & Judith) and was very impressed by their... More

Very welcoming and friendly hosts. Lovely building and pleasant room. Very clean and practical i.e. chair, mirror and plug socket close together to do hair/make- up. Very personal feel to this B&B. Owners obviously enjoy what they are doing. Nice extras such as bottled water, biscuits and chocolate. Good value for money.

A very nice, well located and quality establishment... You can tell the moment you walk in the hotel is well managed and maintained, With more than accommodating hosts, nothing was to much problem for them and they helped with local knowledge & advice on eating establishments etc. Even breakfast was good a little sparce on the full English for me...

I stayed here for one night earlier in the week. It's a very well run establishment. The room and breakfast were excellent. So much nicer than staying in a large impersonal hotel. Friendly service without being intrusive - best of both worlds. Very good value for money. I would stay again and recommend it.
