From the very start, upon arrival, we were able to feel completely relaxed about this hotel. The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful, and made our stay very enjoyable. The hotel was in a fabulous location.

The Yeatman has a story to tell. The story about good life in Portugal. They touch your senses perfectly in all departments. Food & Beverage is great, hotelrooms very comfortable with a stunning view and the Spa on a very high professional level. It is a nice walk to the old town of Porto. I visited some old Porthouses on... More

I have travelled across the globe and tried many 5 star hotels but it's very rare to come across such a place where everything seems to be just perfect. The location is marvellous with its stunning views to the old city of porto, as well as the area where Port wine s still aged and stored. The staff is the... More

We came for a wine tasting event. A little intimidating but a lot of the producers were really friendly and we enjoyed it. There was a study on the main floor which surprisingly allowed smoking. It stank. I know Portugal is hanging on to some of its smoking habits - had to leave several bars too - but enough. Love... More

We were here for a weekend and had a truly memorable time. It's actually worth getting up early to watch the sun rise behind the hotel and light the city of Porto across the Douro river as the fog rolls down from the hills. It's stunning imagery. The hotel itself reminded me of a plantation building in one of the... More
