“500 years old and wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

My husband and I with my mother-in-law stayed last night and found Postgaarden to be spotless and full of character. There is not a 90 degree in the whole hotel, the four poster beds are clean and although our rooms did not have bathrooms as we were the only guests in that part of the hotel we had the whole floor to ourselves.
The host speaks great English and has a sense of humor! He was extremely helpful and informative telling us about the free walking tour at 8pm and places to eat. The breakfast was amazing, delicious cheeses. meats, fresh fruit, great coffee and even though it is hard to stomach in the morning....lax. The bread rolls were so fresh you will have to eat more than one!
The hotel is in a perfect location - within the historic town.
We have been coming to Denmark for 25 years (husband Danish) and try to visit a new place every year, Ribe is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque towns in Europe and full of interesting walks, stores and history. Around every corner you will find another picture waiting to be taken. The Cathedral is well worth the time to visit (free), the mosaic's behind the alter are typical Danish modern, imaginative style which should be out of place but it works. I enjoyed the mixture of recent artists work mixed in with the historic artifacts.
Take the evening walk with the town watchman, it starts at 8pm and takes an hour. He speaks in Danish and English and covers some of the towns factual history and interesting points about architecture and life in the last few centuries.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking the main street and while I was concerned about the noise, we slept with th...

Postgaarden is a charming old, historic bed and breakfast in the center of the oldest town in Denmark. It has probably been used as an inn/hotel for several hundred years.
The host was great, helpful,friendly and full of interesting information about the area. The room was large and clean, (the renovated barn?) Breakfast was delicious and plentiful served in the cozy cafe of the inn. The location is central to explore the town of Ribe and the nearby Wadden Sea National Park.

Very big room (in fact it was a small flat!), very good breakfast, amazing position and a really kind owner. Shared kitchen also available. Maybe the bathroom could be slightly better with also cold water at the lavatory but this is just a "5 star" issue... a really good value for the price. Try the beers at the shop!

Room Tip: Do not worry for parking, the Ribe municipality offers free parking nearby.

This is a lovely historic building in the pedestrian centre of Ribe. We had a great welcome by the owner who was very helpful, assisted us with our luggage and gave us a welcome bottle of wine.

The room was full of character with a very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean shared facilities.

Breakfast was excellent with high quality ingredients and we felt it was good value for money.

Room Tip: Probably best to ask for the largest room - shown in hotel pictures.

Postgaarden B&B is very conveniently located in Ribe, a few minutes from all major attractions. Our room was clean and spacious, although a bit lacking in furnishings (bed, table and chairs) given the size of the room. At the back of the property, it was very quiet and private. The breakfast was excellent, with a wonderful variety of breads and abundant toppings. We defnitely recommend this property.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are spacious and quiet. Brand new when we were there, so perhaps better furnished...
