We stayed in Room 1, "the suite", which includes a small sitting area with a tv, an en suite bathroom and bedroom with a comfy bed. The interior is clean and crisp, mixed with the rustic historical details of the house, which is well in tune with the rest of old Ribe. Great location within walking distance to the cathedral...

A very small B & B with only 3 very nicely furnished rooms. All are of a decent size and have adequate storage areas. Bed was very comfortable. Free coffee and tea all day. Breakfast is honor system with each room's food on a different shelf in the fridge. Very nice pastry was put out each day. Cash only!

We stayed for one night in Room 1, which had a bedroom, a private bathroom, a sitting room with TV, and a small table with 2 chairs in an alcove that also could be set up with an extra bed, which we used. The communal kitchen area had a refrigerator, a coffee machine, and a dishwasher where we were asked... More

Ribe is beautiful. And it lives organically with its history. For Australians like us, this is at times overwhelming: most of the houses in Ribe’s centre were built before Arthur Phillip sailed into Botany Bay. This was our second time in Ribe, … and staying again, for a couple of nights in Den Gamle Købmandsgaard. So old, so much a... More

We spent a night at the B&B and the room was neat and tidy. We landed in Ribe at 9.45 PM and we reached the B&B and called up the person in charge who promptly landed 2 mins later on his bicycle and got us checked in. He also let us borrow the iphone charger. The location of the B&B... More

We had a very nice stay at Gamle Købmandsgård B&B. The rooms are stylish, cosy and clean, and there were, at least in our room, two comfortable chairs available, instead of just one, as is often the case in hotel rooms.

Old grain store converted to a three room B&B. Very clean, good fresh breakfast and free coffee and well priced honesty bar - an excellent and unusual stop over in Ribe - only downside is having to arrange to meet the owner at check in which means calling ahead.

We spent a lovely night at this B & B on our way to Billund Airport. Could not fault it. It was lovely and clean and only a short walk from the centre. Also very reasonably priced. The only problem was that we had an early start the next morning and inconsiderate guests were using the microwave outside our room... More

Very well kept and clean B & B. Free street parking and internet. Breakfast adequate and all day coffee and biscuits. Walking distance to main attractions of Old Town. Nice town to visit. Can recommend. Our room had bathroom seperate from the room but was not a share bathroom.
