Bowden Lodge is well located just a couple of minutes wander to Lord Street. The guest house is beautifully decorated and clean. Our room (1) was very nice with a good sized bathroom. Breakfast was very good and plentiful with a nice selection of cereals, croissant, fruit and of course a large plate of traditional bacon, eggs etc that really...

Lovely room, clean tidy and with a good size en suite bathroom, TV and tea/coffee. Breakfast in a large airy room and excellent choice of food. Lounge spacious - we even had a music rehearsal in there (practise for the weeding the next day). Family friendly and helpful. Good parking and only a short walk into the town centre.

A warm welcome was given us even though we booked in early. Our room was small but spotlessly clean. The towels were thick and fluffy and toiletries were included. In addition there were bottles of water and quality biscuits. There was a good choice of breakfasts which were freshly cooked and delicious. Fruit juice, cereals, yogurt and home made flap...

Have just returned from a 2 night stay at Bowden Lodge. New owners since our last visit but still excellent. Great welcome from hosts Andy and Jane and lovely choice for breakfast. Well situated just a short walk from Lord Street with all its shops, bars and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Southport.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights this last weekend and it was just perfect. The hotel and most importantly our room was spotlessly clean, breakfast was fabulous with lots of options and our hosts were so friendly and welcoming, there are not many hotels left that offer this kind of personal service anymore.

Made to feel very welcome from start to finish of our 2 night stay. The breakfast was cooked to perfection. We will return in the summer to visit Hesketh park in...

Stayed this weekend - 3 nights. Always difficult when ownership changes. Previous owners (David and Judith) a very hard act to follow. New owners Jane and Andy are similarly nice people; have maintained the standards and this is remains my favourite in Southport. Good value I reckon and the breakfast uses good ingredients (e.g. proper bacon that is not watery...

Glad to hear we have managed to keep up the high standards set by David & Judith. We try to use the best quality ingredients for our breakfasts. We offer both full English (cooked to the individuals requirements) & also buffet style lighter options e.g. cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, choc au pains, home made flap jacks or similar etc. It's...

Lovely clean and comfortable hotel. Perfectly located being a very short walk from one end of Lord St yet far enough away to be quiet in the evening. Good hotel car park at the front.

Had a great 2 night stay in a really nice room which was spotlessly clean, lovely breakfast and really friendly hosts. Hotel is close to shops and several good restaurants. A real home from home - we will be back.
