It's my favorite place in Norway. I've spendt 3 months in this hotel and I enjoyed every day of it. The staff, the landscape, the sport opportunities are great. I have to go back as soon as possible. :)

The weekly Norwegian buffet provides an amazing range of cuisine, along with your host providing the historical and cultural background to the dishes. One piece of advice: take tiny portions as there are so many wonderful dishes to sample!

When in Venabu (once a year), I always eat at the Norwegian buffet on a Wednesday evening. Food is always great. This year, the addition of a local beer and a bagpipe playing staff member made the evening better than ever.

The Norwegian buffet, served on a Wednesday night is great. A large choice of fish and meat, served as traditional Norwegian receipes. The 'normal' buffet on other nights is fine, but the Wednesday night is extra special.

We were travelling from Trondheim and planned to stop at Venabu Fjellhotell for a sunday dinner on the way to Oslo.
