“An almost regular visit seeing an elderly relative [99 and counting] Another very pleasant stay only this time with new hosts. The room was comfortable with adequate toiletries provided. The en-suite looked to have been recently refurbished with all new equipment. The service and the food were excellent. We look forward to the next time as it is so convenient for us - our elderly relative being literally one main road away.”
“Excellent - Excellent alll the way! 1st class accommodation, food, cleanliness and hospitality. Great location, walking distance to all amenties. Recommend it to all my family and friends. Thank you.”
“I stayed at the Bowden lodge hotel a couple of years ago & remembered what a good breakfast it was, so had no hesitation in staying there again, when i arrived I found it was under new management, I have to say that my overnight stay was as good if not better than last time I stayed, it is a very clean & well run establishment with very nice hosts, breakfast still top notch.”
“5 star all the way. What can I say.. nothing less than 1st class accommodation, food, cleanliness and amazing hosts from start to finish. Andy and Jane couldn't do anymore to accommodate you. Plenty of choice for breakfast, the full English beautifully cooked. Only 5 mins walk to Lord st. Will be booking again”

It was very well run, very friendly and very good value for money. Jane and Andy were excellent hosts and made sure everything was right.

“November 17 Ideal Hotel and location for short stay in Southport Stayed 2 nights for a weekend break. This Hotel is just a short walk from the centre of Southport and an ideal choice for a short break. Plenty of options for food and drink, the closest being a very good gastro pub, the Imperial, just 150 yards away. Owners were very friendly and helpful, room had all facilities required and breakfast was of a very high standard. Would highly recommend. Would recommend to a friend.”
“October 17 Friendly, traditional good quality bed and breakfast with all you need for your stay. We were staying for a funeral. I booked online from Spain with no problem. My single room had no window to see out (it was a very high louvre window) which I initially found a little claustrophobic, but in fact the room was cosy and comfortable with everything one might need, from water, hot beverages, small snack, washing facilities etc. It was clean and basic but our interactions with the staff were very warm and friendly and the breakfast was fabulous with every need met. Great stay. Would recommend. There was ventilation, but it felt like a little cell like at first. Would recommend to a friend.”
“July 17 Jane and Andy are wonderful people, I recommend you stay with them when in Southport, UK. Quick trip to Southport, Bowden Lodge is friendly and conveniently located. Owners are great people. Accommodations are very comfortable, service is great. Price is very reasonable. Would recommend to a friend.”
“June 17 Short break Lovely old building with many original features for the period. Upgraded by owners to a larger family size room very spacious for our needs. Andy & Jane were the best we had the friendliest welcome and nothing was too much trouble.The breakfast & both Andy & Jane made our stay relaxed for us to enjoy the whole experience. Would recommend to a friend.”
