I stayed for one night, with a friend, during a month-long road trip around Scandinavia. At £67 for a suite, this Bed & Breakfast establishment was one of the cheapest places we stayed. I loved it!!!! We had to phone ahead to inform the host of our imminent arrival. Johnnie was waiting to welcome us as we pulled up outside.... More

Ribe's the sort of place everyone should visit when they visit Denmark - and when they do, they should stay here if they possibly can. Just a few minutes' walk from the station - and only a few steps from the heart of this lovely old town - Den Gamle Kobmansgard is a neat, clean, tidy, beautifully and simply decorated,... More

We had a warm welcome and great rooms. The place is at walking distance tot Ribe and the sightseeings. The rooms are good! Doors are low so mind youre head when you are tall... Eveything was clean and the breakfast was good. Simpel but good. Overall a good stay!

We stayed for one night in October and very much enjoyed our visit. The room was clean, spacious and perfect for our needs. The wooden floors creaked a bit and the shared kitchen was easy to use. The owner was personable and open to suggestions like providing soap and small wash cloths in the shower. The breakfast was cold with... More

Great location and Johnny the owner is great. Free coffee and tea, good breakfast although no hot. Parking is available in the street outside but you need to purchase a parking ticket from the owner. There are a couple of things that would make the place excellent. The bed is not a double, it is two singles pushed together, I... More

My husband and I spent the night of June 28 at Den Gamle Kobmandsgaard Bed and Breakfast. We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was large with a nice sitting area. The bed was comfortable with wonderful bedding. It was very clean. The breakfast was good. We had the room with the private exterior bathroom and it was not... More

Had a great sleep at this informal b & b. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable - and appreciated the informal and friendly approach of owner Jacob who came by with delicious Danish breads for breakfast. There a small kitchen space so you can prepare light bites (meals out in Denmark are expensive for some EU nationalities). Thanks for a... More

We booked the suite for one night: Excellent location close to the city center (ok, it is just Ribe, so everything is more or less close to the city center), nice interior (modern, but also with the right feeling for an old town as Ribe), friendly host, good breakfast. Maybe the bathroom is a small con (very small), but it... More

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...
