Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘cleverly designed, well-maintained gardens’ on the outskirts of town, Beryl and James Kearney’s elegant Georgian mansion has ‘uninterrupted views’ of the surrounding land, and a ‘cheerful ambience’ within. ‘Beryl, warm and friendly, is a dynamo; James’s relaxed Irish geniality radiates a sense of confidence in an arriving guest,’ says a Guide inspector in 2017. There are log fires in the sitting rooms, and paintings and ornaments throughout. Bedrooms, individually furnished with period pieces, have contemporary flair. ‘On two levels, my tastefully decorated room had rugs on wood flooring; a metal-and-marble fireplace; an immaculate bathroom with underfloor heating. A pine staircase led to a small, galleried sitting area.’ In the old stables, chef Gary O’Hanlon’s modern cooking (perhaps salt-fried sirloin steak, Crozier Bleu gratin) is thought ‘superb’. ‘As the restaurant was closed on a Sunday evening, we had a late lunch at 4 pm. Tasty fishcakes were followed by aged blade of beef and horseradish potatoes; rhubarb crumble rounded off the fine meal.’ Breakfast, with freshly squeezed clementine juice, is ‘delicious’.

Guest comments

'Warm and friendly welcome from James. His relaxed Irish geniality and easy conversation immediately radiates a sense of confidence in an arriving guest. On the ground floor along a tiled corridor, is a series of modern rooms, each on two levels. As with the restaurant extension, the design is of quality and the decor exudes good judgement and taste. Restaurant service was prompt and polite from a team of young waitresses overseen by Beryl, friendly and clearly a dynamo. Fine food. Delicious breakfast. ' - RG - April, 2017
'Extremely comfortable, well-appointed, in lovely grounds, with Beryl an excellent, hardworking host. Superb food: each night we had the Early Bird menu - good value and large portions. Delicious amuse-bouche, creamy vegetable soup, a pork-cheek and salad starter and wonderfully-presented salmon and chicken main courses; always a separate dish of veggies, which included the best mashed potato ever! The restaurant was packed with locals - it is clearly the place to go for a celebration. The freshest of eggs at breakfast, cooked by Beryl's husband. ' - Mary Milne-Day - July, 2014
'Our family had a wonderful few days at Viewmount for my son's wedding. The accommodation was very comfortable, the welcome warm, the breakfasts WERE wonderful and regarding the wedding ran smoothly. The wedding meal was superb. ' - Marion Rodgers - August, 2012
