Good Hotel Guide Review

A long drive through parkland brings guests to this Georgian mansion beside the golf course on the edge of town, where Beryl and James Kearney are the ‘warm and friendly’ hosts. They are ‘richly deserving’ of the numerous awards they hold, say Guide inspectors, who were checked in by Mr Kearney (‘all relaxed geniality’) before he carried their cases and printed out their boarding passes for next day’s flight. One of two ground-floor rooms, ‘each on two levels’ with a pine staircase leading up to a galleried sitting room, it ‘exuded good judgement and taste’. It had an original fireplace, a ‘robust’ wooden bed, rugs on wood flooring, underfloor bathroom heating and a spa bath. All rooms have antiques, fresh flowers, handmade toiletries. In VM restaurant in the converted stables, new chef Robert Groot Koerkamp creates such dishes as salt-fried John Stone sirloin steak, saffron potato, shallot, porcini; monkfish, Jerusalem artichoke, kale, pickle, fish sauce. Breakfast brought freshly squeezed clementine juice, stewed rhubarb, eggs scrambled to order. ‘Well-maintained, inter-linked small gardens include a Japanese themed area, complete with pagoda, bridges and pond.’

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
