A daily wedding had us looking for somewhere to stay in Southport for the weekend and the Bowden Lodge Hotel was our choice. Located on Albert Road, which then changes its name to Lord Street a little further on was very handy for access to the town. Plenty of parking space for us when we arrived and we were greeted...

We were looking at booking a last minute trip away over Easter and managed to come across Bowden Lodge online. Tip: phone them up for the best rates!!! 😊😊 The room was incredibly clean, comfy and welcoming. Free biscuits, chocolate and bottled water is provided, as well as toiletries (shower gel and bath liquid) which is a good touch. The...

Myself and my husband had a 2 night stay here in a double room. For all our room was small it was light, bright and tastefully decorated and very clean. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and shown to our room. Breakfast here is beautifully cooked my only criticism would be to see if people prefer...

Excellent location, just off Lord Street. Excellent family run business that made us very welcome. Superb breakfast where nothing was to much trouble. Space at front of hotel to park car. Enjoyed it so much already booked to return next year.

Stayed here for two nights whilst going to the Grand National. This hotel is ideally placed not far from the main shops and cafes on Lord Street. It's run by a lovely couple with their four year old daughter who welcomed us to the hotel. The rooms are very well furnished, bright and airy and immaculately clean. Breakfast was multiple...

I Would highly recommend this hotel and also Andy and Jane. I found them both to be very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was a family room, and had everything we needed. The breakfast served each morning was fabulous, with a wide selection for all appetites! We will definitely be visiting again!

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...
