We were 6 family members traveling in Denmark, so we used all 3 of the rooms. This was our favorite lodging of the trip. The rooms were very spacious, and the location was perfect for walking to explore Ribe. We wished that we could have stayed longer than 1 night & day.

Ribe is a must visit town. The town is full of character. The B&B is situated only a very short walk from the centre of the old town. The rooms are wonderful. Tastefully decorated. Breakfast is ample, fresh! The owner is most friendly and obliging. Parking is available outside at a modest fee.

At 29° it was the hottest day of the year, so a lack of air-conditioning was uncomfortable! But this was of course out of the ordinary. Good location very close to the centre of town. Comfortable room, good Wi-Fi. Very reasonably priced. Parking in the street just outside was not a problem on Sunday. Good shared kitchen facilities (fridge, microwave).... More

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
