“Very Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

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 to put our dirty dishes. Everything was very clean and the bedroom was quiet. WiFi worked well. The owner met us on arrival and brought breakfast the next morning, but didn't live on-site, so it was a little more like an apartment than a B&B. We parked in the street, but the owner warned us to move the car in the morning and we didn't have a problem. The location was great, within walking distance of the cathedral, restaurants, etc.

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 part of historic Ribe: you look through the window on to the narrow, cobblestoned Hundegade. Inside, you enjoy all the comforts of modern living, beautifully furnished and appointed. With delicious breakfasts, and a 24 hour-a-day coffee machine.
Last time we were in Ribe, we stayed in Den Gamle Købmandsgaard’s Unit 1, which has a private shower and toilet. This time, we had Unit 2: our private amenities were reached by walking through the dining area and down the hallway. But this is a small price to pay for living in such an historic building.
One caution, though! Do not let anyone convince you that you may park your car on Hundsgate. We did, and found ourselves with an infringement notice and a fine of 500 Danish kroner, a not inconsiderable amount of money. We had parked our car in the narrow cobblestone street too close to the corner, too close to the wall. When we asked about relevant signs, we were told by the traffic inspector that signs are unnecessary because everyone knows the rules. We didn’t, … and obviously, few drivers in Ribe really do! A traffic infringement notice that seems unjust can somewhat spoil your holiday and jaundice some of your feelings and attitudes.

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 is 500 mtrs from Ribe Cathedral and some 600-700 mtrs from the Ribe railway station. Its very convenient for those who want to check the town out by walking (highly recommended).

The breakfast was fresh with some nice coffee and really nice bread. There was some breakfast meats and muesli/corn flakes and juice. All in all a great start to the day.

Highly recommend the B&B.

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.

Room Tip: One of the three rooms does not have a bathroom inside the room itself, but a bathroom a little bit...

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 at 10pm. Even worse was being wakened up with more inconsiderate guests using the coffee machine at 2.30am!!!
