We experienced a super safe welcome from a lovely host. Loved the way we were able to order breakfast, and what a variety it was. Nothing too much trouble with the covid situation, handgel a plenty throughout the property. And our host wore a face screen at all times and took great care to be safe. Would definitely recommend for an holiday, even in these unpredictable times, sure it will not be our last visit.

We stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time! Andy and Jane are great hosts, we had room 5, the Family Room and everything was pretty much perfect!! Room was comfortable, clean, had everything we needed and more If we needed anything like an iron or milk for a brew the guys were more than happy to accommodate The communal areas were closed due to C-19 but it didn’t matter! Breakfast is ordered the night before but delivered to your room and a choice that matches anywhere so you can feel extra special if you fancy a lazy breakfast in bed’ There is a ‘trust’ mini bar with added extras and this makes a big difference We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in a comfortable friendly environment We will definitely be back when we return to Southport

Booked a last minute one night stay at Bowden in August. Jane was very prompt to reply to my enquiry & so we booked in straight away. On arrival, we received a warm welcome from Jane, who explained where our room was & how to order breakfast. As a family of 3, our room provided plenty of space & comfort, was exceptionally clean in both the bedroom & ensuite. Our breakfasts were brought to our rooms on trays (due to the present pandemic), at the exact time we'd ask for & the hot food was hot & very well presented. The location is absolutely fantastic for visiting Southport, close enough to the town centre & seafront, that you don't need to use the car. We were fortunate to be blessed with the weather which is always an added bonus too. We will definitely be back to stay again soon.

Very welcoming couple run the hotel. Lovely room, very clean. Very well organised for a safe stay, during these covid times. We were well looked after when we had problems with our car. The breakfast was great, especially recommend the home baked apricot flapjack! The location is perfect for everything anyone would want to do in Southport. Quiet yet only a stone's throw from the town centre. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a safe and enjoyable stay.
