Remont Oxford Hotel

Leaving Dover at 9am, we struggled through the English traffic to Milton Keynes, and Bletchley Park.
A lot of work has gone into making this a worthwhile place to visit, and on the whole it works. The kids found the multimedia guides interesting, and there were enough interactive exhibits (even if some of them didn't entirely work) to keep them interested.
Lunch, and off home!
All the animals seem well, phew.
... with Emma and Joe for a bit. Jim gave Joe his card and offered him a position in the NY office, which is very exciting for Joe. Then Joe and I talked about ties and why I like them and think they're pretty, and then I had to take off to get back to Pembroke in time for dinner at 5PM.
Dinner was nice. We had chicken in mushroom sauce with veggies and chips. Then I helped with the switch over to the second dinner ...
... of Dreaming Spires than any other building, has supported 10 bells since 1509. Following the wedding, those bells were rung for 30 minutes - the unending carillon!!!!
The campus boasts a great Plane tree, planted in 1666. We got a photo, but the size is so immense, that the photo pales in comparison. There is also a large wooded area, home to a large herd of Fallow Deer; and a large meadow area. The River Cherwell runs ...
... No, I want to talk to him," and the boy looked a bit sad at the lack of attention. Ahh, the teenage ego at its finest.
When the show was over I stuck around for an extra hour to help clean up and pack everything away. I can't believe that my final day off is tomorrow. London Day! Richard Armitage in The Crucible Day! Hooray! Before we went to bed Natalie and I allowed ourselves one excited hug because we get to go play in London tomorrow. Good times.
I know there was a time in my life when I could easily stay up until 4AM and be bright and chipper for the morning after only a few hours sleep. That time has passed. Sadly, that time has passed.
Psychologists call sleep The Gentle Giant, the one who will always win out. No matter how we fight, stress, or avoid it, sleep always comes, when it wants and for how long it wants. One must accept the sleep, or it will punish us all.

Historical Traveler Reviews Remont Oxford Hotel
We have just returned from a weekend at the Remont and enjoyed every minute of it. We stayed in a Superior double room and we were impressed from the front door to the tiles in the bathroom.
The rooms are exquisite. The bathroom is very modern and clean, with unique touches. Our room was very spacious as was the bed - probably 6 foot by 6 foot. There is a very stylish flat screen TV with free view. A leather sofa and great room decor.
There is no lunch or dinner provided at the hotel, however, the breakfast buffet is lovely with hot full english selection, breads, cereals, fruit, etc. For lunch and dinner, nearby Summertown in the main street on Banbury Road is only a short walk away and has various restaurants - indian, chinese, italian, greek, etc.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely come again.
The reviews are all true
My wife and I stayed for one night only after dropping our daughter for an interview at the college. At breakfast we found 3 other familys who were in the same position. All agreed the Remont is an excellent choice. The decor is relaxing, as is the service and there is more parking space than at first site. The breakfast was good and the coffee excellent. No complaints at all, try it for yourselves.
Home away from home :)
We stayed at the Remont for 3 days (end of October) on our honeymoon. Few places tend to leave a lasting impression and Remont is definitely one of those. It is a sleek and modern accommodation providing a totally fresh and lustrous outlook with all the essential amenities and much more. I was blown away by the in-room facilities (Lcd TV, Wireless BroadBand, King Size Beds) and the lavish buffet breakfast. The staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful and professional. Bravo!
Beautiful, impeccably clean, contemporary accommodation! Superb facilities, luxury bathroom and huge power shower, Free Wireless Internet, Flat screen TV, wonderful breakfast and exceptional staff! I loved it!
More Hotel Than Guest House!
Remont has the feel of a modern sleek Hotel but without the bar and restaurant facility. As I found out later, this was not such an issue as there were many places to eat and drink at the nearby Summertown, only 7 min walk away.
Contemporary art work adorned the crisp white walls, and to my surprise, the bathrooms were of higher standards than most of the hotels I stayed in. It was fresh and spotlessly clean, fitted with high quality fittings and the polished stone surfaces provided plenty of surface space for my toiletries. The bed was extremely comfortable, and there was even a wall mounted flat screen TV with more satellite channels than I could count. Wireless internet in the room was also a bonus. I was surprised at how quite the place was, only later to find that extensive sound proofing had been carried out as part of the renovation.
In the morning breakfast was served in what can only be described as a designer breakfast room. The breakfast was equally good with a wide choice of items from their buffet style full English and continental breakfast.
Clearly a grate deal of money has been spent, and I t shows. This is more like a stylish contemporary hotel than a guest house, and I will definitely be coming here on my next visit.
"Elegant, Modern & Contemporary", were the words my colleague used to describe this place. Being a frequent visitor to Oxford and having stayed at most hotels/guest accommodations, I was quite vary of his bold statement yet decided to try it out for myself.
First off, their attractive yet easy to navigate website outlines detailed info including numerous photographs so as to get a good feel of the place without actually being there. The booking was a breeze thanks to the patient individual on the other end.
From the moment we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised by the apparent splendour and tranquillity of the place. The staff made us feel right at home with their friendly and facilitating predisposition. The en-suite rooms were exceptionally tidy, tastefully decorated and depicted a truly contemporary outlook. The breakfast was delicious and splendid catering for most tastes and the buffet style arrangement was a refreshing change.
All in all, it was a memorable experience and highly recommended next time anyone visits Oxford.
the wife and i stayed at the remont last weekend and had a fantastic time there!
the welcome was most pleasent and helpful when it came to finding out places to visit in oxford. the guest house was extremely clean and well looked after. the place has a modern feel to it with white walls and contemporary artwork.
the bedrooms were a real treat, with things such as lcd tv (plus loads of channels) and leather headboard.
breakfast time was great, we enjoyed a full english breakfast. the bacon was juicy yet crispy and the sausages plump and tasty, not dry and wrinkly like other breakfasts ive had in other places.
all i can say now is that we shall return to the remont the next time were in oxford.
A Wonderful Place to Stay
We have just returned from a marvellous stay at the Remont Guest House in Oxford, England which seemed to us to be more 'boutique hotel' than guest house. The place was spotlessly clean, the room stylishly contemporary, the bathroom fantastic, the breakfast buffet extensive and delicious, the staff approachable, friendly and helpful. A further bonus is that the interior walls have been sound-proofed -- not a sound from other guests. There is lots of parking and excellent local bus service (day & night) steps from the front door. We are frequent visitors to Oxford and feel that for value & price the Remont heads the list.
A beautiful modern hotel
The last week of September we stayed in Remont Guesthouse for 5 nights. And we can only speak in superlatives, because it was great! The rooms are very comfortable with a superb bed, breakfast is delicious and the service is excellent!
The people from the hotel were very friendly.
The location is good, you can easily go by bus to the centre (busstop 50 m). We'll sure stay there next time!
