Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited here while in Hereford for the weekend. (it was a planned visit) The American guide in the hospital building was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in a totally unobtrusive way. We had a lovely long chat with her and she explained about the priory, the hospital and the houses brilliantly. This is an absolute gem of a place to visit and it's free! We learned a lot and are keen to find out more about the order! I hope most people, like we did, would leave a nice donation to help its upkeep.

Very interesting little museum, run by a friendly man who can tell you everything about the place, and it's free so help them be able to stay open and drop a few quid in the pot on the way out

A special space with a friendly guide who gave all details needed to understand the building's history.

There are also beautiful gardens round the back.

We visited Hereford for the first time on Saturday and went to see the medieval hospital. We arrived just as the volunteer who worked there was closing up but she was so kind as to take us both around anyway. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and had written her Masters thesis on the building. She answered all of our questions and was full of interesting information.

The museum area has some nice armour exhibits on loan from the Royal Armouries and some hilarious/creepy waxworks of famous residents in the room above. There is a working knights Hospitaler chapel and the ruins of Blackfriars abbey next door are open to the public in a small park.

All free to visit, but funded by donations. Well worth visiting and leaving a donation if you can.

I have been visiting Hereford for several years and only came across this very interesting historical site by complete accident. I was a passenger in a car travelling into the city centre & happened to notice what looked like a medieval building tucked amongst a street of modern commercial buildings. I noted the name & looked up the details.The present day almshouses date from the 17th C and were built from the stones of a 12th C Blackfriars monastery the remains of which are tucked behind the buildings in a delightful rose garden( also open to the public). The part open to the public is a the hospital built by the Knights Hospitallers and the attached chapel which is all that remains of the medieval buildings. The museum is very interesting & was manned by a very knowledgeable volunteer. I was really surprised it was not on the list of must see attractions in Hereford. I expect it is because it is away from the Cathedral/Castle area but is only a short walk from the city centre. Well worth a visit!It is free entry & only open Weds & Sats 11am-3pm March -Oct

It should be even better, now it has a museum inside. (I visited in 1985.) The curator there, Peter Harris, is very knowledgeable.

This is a great little museum and well worth a visit.
The guide was very informative and said almshouse was likely to have been the forerunner to the Royal Hospital at Chelsea.
It was good to see that the almshouses are still in use.
The inner courtyard garden was beautiful
