Canal Court Hotel & Spa
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Newry
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 11, 2013

For of us as two couples have recently returned from an absolutely fabulous 4 days in NI, mainly around Newry, staying at the Canal Court. We couldn't thank the hotel and their staff more, I neever know such open friendliness as given to us 4 during our trip. The hotel staff went beyond that normally expected. Special thanks to Mary in the dinning room she and her staff really took care of us. Mary even had my spectacles repaired as I lost a screw from them!! Food was excellent and far too plentiful!! The bar on the friday we were there was packed and entertained by a local Irish penny whistle band, again, lots of reindly and interesting people. Our rooms were massive ( Superior ) with a Jacuzzi bath, clean and quiet. Minor issue with the card locking door, but C'est la vie. An excellent trip, excellent hotel and very very reasonable cost. We will be back for more.......

Room Tip: Go for a superior room ands one of the hotel special deals, you won't regret!!

2nd stay in canal court..

Stayed once last September for a hen weekend where we had a package of dinner, cocktail making and an overnight stay. Dinner was lovely but nothing out of the ordinary. Cocktail making great craic and bar tenders great fun. A bit annoying that we had to pay extra to get into their night club even though we were staying over! Rooms great- spacious, clean and all the little extras such as toiletries and tea/coffee. A separate bath/ shower would make them perfect. Breakfast the next morning cooked to order and very tasty with a good selection.

2nd stay was following a friends wedding. Wedding beautiful and they were excellent with the all guests. Room beautiful and meal was faultless- everything very tasty, piping hot including plates and they came round with 2nds of everything. I was completely stuffed! Only thing bad is their coffee- appalling taste.

Leisure facilities very nice as well and lovely for the heart of the city. Outdoor hot tub is particularly nice. We were able to check out at 11.30 then use the facilities with our bags held behind reception. Staff very accommodating of same!

The lobby entrance to the Canal Court is fabulous, very impressive indeed and it don't stop there the whole hotel is gorgeous the bedroom was spacious, spotless and very comfortable the bar was welcoming and had lots of different nooks and crannies. The restaurant was also impressive and breakfast was plentiful hot and tasty, the staff are friendly and professional. Great experience and if I'm ever again in Newry I won't be looking anywhere else for accommodation. There are two large shopping centres within walking distance and Newry town is on your door step.

My sister had her wedding here on Saturday and from the moment we arrived til checkout it was bliss. Staff where amazing especially Patrick who couldn't have done more! Loved the look and feel of the whole place. Food is the best I've ever had. Family room lovely and spacious.
One small issue with noise of guests across the hall at 5am,just a thought- don't put a stag party in same corridor as 3 families with young kids!!
Loved the hotel though, will definitely be back!!

My boyfriend and I decided to have dinner in the restaurant on Saturday evening. We felt such a warm, friendly atmosphere as soon as we walked in. We sat and had a drink whilst waiting on our table by the beautiful open fire. The girl who served us couldn't have been any more helpful or friendly and our dinner was delicious. We couldn't fault the hotel in any way and we are already planning to go back to have a relaxing spa weekend. Perfect! Would highly recommend :)

Just back from a hen weekend at the Canal Court and I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and staff. Just because they offer hen and stag packages do not be fooled - this is not your typical hen and stag hotel. The hotel itself is very grand, (we felt like we should have been attending the wedding rather than hen party!) and the rooms were clean and spacious.

The staff could not have done more for us, from booking our dinner to providing a travel toothbrush and toothpaste to one of the party who had forgotten theirs to recommending nearby restaurants and bars nearby. We paid 150 each for 2 nights bed and breakfast, one evening meal, go karting and full use of the leisure facilities (including outdoor hot tub which was amazing!) We all had a great time and I would highly recommend to families, couples, groups of friends - the canal court has something to offer for everyone!

Just back from a two night stay at the Canal Court Hotel and I must say that I really enjoyed my stay there. Lovely décor with an open fire in the reception area. The bed was large and very, very comfortable bed and a tasty hot breakfast the next morning. We had an excellent lunch in the bar.

I tried the spa last night and really enjoyed the hot tub on the roof while I watched the haloween fireworks!

I had one very tiny complaint which was the room was a little warm but I was able to open the window and all was fine.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I thoroughly recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back there.
