We visited Vila Nova de Gaia seven years ago and said wouldn't it be fabulous if they created a hotel in amongst the port houses - and then the Yeatman came along and we've been promising ourselves a visit ever since!!!! We were able to book one of the package (spring) deals which offers very good value as it included... More

Hotel is built from the top down. It is like a giant staircase built into the hillside. Every room has a wonderful terrace and view of Porto across the river. Lobby bar is best deal around. Food was very good.... can't say that for the Michelin rated restaurant (flat tire in my book) that was over priced and over rated... More

Just back after 4 days at the Yeatman. Everything was perfect (expect slippery tiles around the indoor swimming pool). Extremely friendly and helpful staff - good value compared to the service and standard and a stunning location. Porto is a great place to visit - this hotel provides the perfect setting. We also had a very good experience in the... More

We booked three suites for two nights for a family weekend. We were very impressed by the hotel in general, its gorgeous views over the city and the service. We were warmly welcomed by the duty manager who is very knowledgeable about the city and the property's history. The suites were huge, each of them with a different atmosphere but... More

Oh that view! Absolutely spectacular and there to be enjoyed from every room, each with its own private terrace, large enough to lounge on. That same lovely view from the bar, the breakfast room, pools and dining room. (Though not the spa, which is mostly underground.) The rooms are spacious, very traditional in style, but thoughtfully planned. Bookshelves fully stocked... More

Stayed here for one night in February and it was absolutely amazing. The views are to die for and the hotel is top class. Our room was absolutely vast, with a jacuzzi as well as a lovely shower and a terrace which gave directly on the Douro river and the famous bridge. The breakfast menu in the morning is abundant...

My wife and I stayed here last year during a European trip and it was the highlight of our trip. The setting, cleanliness of the hotel, friendliness of the staff, the outstanding rooms with individual interior design - not to mention the Michelin star restaurant which was truly remarkable. I'd recommend going to Porto purely to stay at The Yeatman.... More

Uncork this beauty of a hotel. Stunning suites, breathtaking views over Porto, Michelin-starred cuisine. And who knew that port worked so well in cocktails? The Yeatman deserves every praise for taking a risky decision and subsequently delivering a property of such distinction.

Perfect location up the hill from the port wine cellars that you will visit and across the river with a stupendous view of Porto. Everything is within walking distance but you may never want to leave this luxurious property. Most if not all rooms have a spacious terrace over the river, the wine spa is extraordinary, and stop in the... More
