A group of us had 3 rooms at the Yeatman during our visit to Porto. The hotel is perfect. Each of our rooms were decorated in different, beautiful colors. Every one has a view of the river and the Porto cityscape. The food is great, service impeccable. You are in walking distance to all the port wine caves and a... More

Beautifully situated in Gaia in a cascading fashion overlooking the city of Porto. The rooms all have fabulous views and large balconies. The staff is outstanding, and the chef acquired the first Michelin star in porto. All the public rooms are beautiful. the Yeatman is truly first class.

I chose the Yeatman Hotel for my five day business stay after comparing it to other 4-5 star properties in porto area. I was not disappointed! It was splendid! The room was spacious and well furnished with a private outdoor terrace overlooking the valley and beautiful town of Porto. The hotel has every imaginable amenity. Only two issues that could...

Last week, accompanied by my Brother-in-Law and my Nephew, I stayed in The Yeatman and what an experience! The purpose of the trip, for three wine and food enthusiasts was to learn more about Portuguese wine and of course Port; Portuguese wine being under promoted in the UK. This beautiful hotel provided the perfect base to explore the extraordinary City... More

From the moment you arrive at this elegant and classy hotel you are made to feel welcome. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. We felt they must have all been sent to "charm school". It is certainly a very "posh" hotel but there is no arrogance or stuffiness and guests are made to feel special. The bedrooms... More

Breautidul hotel with an amazing service and breathtaking view towards the city of Porto. All rooms have views and varandas, super comfortable and spacious. The spa is amazing and the view of the swimming pool is beautiful (just thought the pool was a little too cold). Definitely recommed and will return!

I can highly recommend to visit that hotel if you can afford it. The view is amazing and all rooms have their own terrace overlooking the river and the city. It's located on the site where all the wineries are.

The restaurant is astronomically overpriced, so be ready for that. The staff was absolutely wonderful. The spa was great, and the smoking room/library is a great place to hang out, have a drink, and smoke a cigar. The location was great; it was about a five-minute walk to the riverbank. The river has plenty of restaurants, pharmacies, bars, etc. The... More
