Fantastic 2 nights in the Bowden Lodge Hotel. Under new ownership the week we arrived. Great hospitality, clean and comfortable with nice little touches in the room. Wishing the new owners all the best in their new venture. We will definitely be returning.

Hi Jeff, We are very pleased that you both enjoyed your 'Short break in Southport' and particularly that you appreciated the 'homely' atmosphere we provide, rather than the in-personal experience you get at some of the bigger hotels. We hope to see you again when you next visit this delightful seaside town of Southport. Kind regards, David and Judith Wynn More
