The Yeatman had been recommended to us as a place to have a drink during our trip to Porto so we stopped in on our way to a Port tour. The staff were very friendly, and when we asked to have lunch and drink in the bar area they couldnt have been quicker to assist. The view from Gaia over... More

This hotel has fabulous views over the town of Porto. One is welcomed by a smiling commissionaire at the door ( SO important ) and is made to feel at home from the minute one steps into the enormous front hall. My room was very comfortable and everything worked well including the WiFi. We did not eat in the restaurant... More

I stayed here with my husband at the beginning of April to start off our honeymoon with some luxury, and we were not disappointed. From the moment we came through the front doors we were looked after and made to feel like ultra special guests. We were even lucky enough to find our room upgraded - and it was beautiful,... More

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.

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...

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
