The walls were paper thin. We could hear the neighbours going to the toilet. Not flushing, actually going to the toilet!! Cupboard doors opening and glassess clinking a toast! Our compliants to reception about a room party next door fell on deaf ears until the third complaint.

The food is dated and heavy. Nothing comes without being fried, sauced or covered in something. The waiting staff were so eager to get rid of us from the restaurant at 10pm that they started setting up the breakfast things around us, pure class!!

When we returned to the hotel on the Saturday evening it was like coming home to a West End pile them high sell them cheap chain boozer! The downstairs bar was packed and the people spilled into the foyer. A bouncer was on the door who checked us off the list and looked at us like we were pond life. When we went for a coffee in the morning in the same bar the seats were are covered in grime and stains.

The is NO AREA for residents alone, no private bar, no peace. You can sit with the whole of Newry and like it or lump it.

This place feels like a local leisure facility. Kids in the jacuzzi, people getting drunk on their Saturday night out.

The room was a good size, clean, staff freindly.

Alas there is no other option at the moment it seems. Apparently a rival will be opening its doors soon. About time!

I have stayed at this hotel many times when on business in Ireland and I must say that the food, service, hospitality and the rooms are brilliant and would never pass this hotel by for any other. The food potions are huge and the staff are ever so friendly nothing is a bother to them.

I have also had the occasion to stay at their sister hotel the Carrickdale when the Canal Court was full and the same applies another fantastic hotel with beautiful rooms, restaurant and food.

Spent one night in this delightful hotel in january 2004. Excellent facilities. Lovely restaurant with outstanding array of food on offer. Delicous & very large portions. Waiting staff were very friendly & couldn't do more to help. Bar very relaxing, very intimate large open fire & pianist. Both the room & ensuite were immaculate, could not be faulted. Loved the bed, was absolutely huge. Again breakfast was lovely, cold buffet & then a full irish breakfast available to order from your table. Would definately stay again

I actually did not stay at the Canal Court Hotel, but everytime we are in Northern Ireland to visit my family, we eat the the restaurant in the hotel. It is magnificent. The place is beautiful and food is wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel and especially the restaurant to anyone around Newry.
