The Canal Court Hotel, well first impressions were its the biggest building in Newry City. Not to rubbish the Hotel but Newry is no City, its about the size of Rainham in Kent where I am from. Newry was granted city status in 2000 by the Queen, across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland a city from each region was chosen. Northern Ireland being so small ended up getting Newry nominated. Of note at the time was that its Sinn Fein /IRA Town Mayor refused to meet the Queen. The attitude of these people shows all the time, my English accent was met with scorn.
Food in the Hotel was acceptable, apart from their so called late night room service, dried out sandwiches evidentally saved from earlier in the day and sold to guests at inflated rates. Generally expect the taste of the deep fat fryer with all your meals---. Again not to speak out against the Hotel, but Newry is a Horrible town, we saw several fights on the streets, litter and graffiti everywhere. We did not feel at all safe walking around this place at the weekend. We decided to return to the Canal Court about 11.30, we were met with cross looking door staff, and when we eventually got in we were faced with what seems like the locals fighting inside the bar. There were even people being sick at reception. At least we were able to retire to our bedroom, which was clean. When we got to the room we could even hear the people biside us arguing. All in all not to be recommended. Drive past Newry
