“Perfect in Porto!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is a gorgeous hotel. It is situated to take advantage of the spectacular views. From the moment you pull up to the entrance you are met with smiling, extremely professional and warm staff.
You are a quick walk across the bridge to the historic areas and on the same side of the river as the Port houses.
The hotel restaurants are excellent and there are huge terraces to eat and enjoy drinks and take in the amazing view.
I will return to this hotel!!

This is a fantastic hotel with a view you will remember, the service is very good from start to finish. Excelent breakfast in the morning and we did have our dinner both eveings at the pool bar. The food was very good, and togheter with excelent service and a view we will not forget this made two perfect evenings for us which we will remember.
The only thing we could make a small complain about is the cleaning of the terasse and furniture outside our room.
We will definetly come back to this hotel next time we visit this region of Portugal.

With a perfect service and a fantastic wine celar, restaurants with gourmet menu, I can assure that is a hotel you will want to be again next time. A well designed swimming pool and a sp located in the hill makes you feel like floating over the city.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the lower floor

We just stayed as a family at the Yeatman for two wonderful nights. From the moment we were picked up at the train station by the car service arranged by the hotel to the moment we were dropped off at the airport by another car service arrange by the hotel every moment we spent at the Yeatman was extraordinary. We would put the Yeatman a step above a Four Seasons and on par with the Aman Resorts this hotel very much deserves its association with Relais and Chateaux.

Each and every staff member had the perfect balance of being helpful without being annoying. The hotel is physically perfect with interesting spaces, the entire facility is well laid-out, the rooms are spacious with beautiful views.

The food in each establishment is excellent and the food at “The Restaurant” was a meal that our family will remember for a long time. Our daughter’s gluten allergy was carefully and attentively addressed by the restaurant. Her meal was identical to ours with only the most minor of alterations. In nearly every review we have ever submitted to Trip Advisor there has always been something to complain about. However, for the Yeatman everything about it was perfect. Well, o.k. we will give one complaint, the city of Porto is beautiful to look at from across the river at the Yeatman but the city itself once you get into it is a bit of a run-down uninteresting city. Though the port houses on the Yeatman side of the river are all a delight, especially Grahams.

To the staff and owners of the Yeatman – Thank you for sharing us with an absolutely wonderful place to visit.

A final note, even the cost of the Yeatman seems to be a bargain in comparison with other R&C establishments and in comparison with the other hotels we stayed at in Portugal (Lisbon and Algarve).

Room Tip: We had two Superior Rooms, both spectacular.

On arrival you are greeted with a friendly smile and impeccable service. The decor and ambience add to the surroundings and the Gastronomic restaurant although expensive is a must. Porto is a fantastic place to visit for a couple of days and the hotels location is perfect.

We stayed three nights at this magnificent hotel. All the rooms have spectacular views of the river. We specifically requested a room on a higher floor because of the added privacy, and the hotel graciously accommodated this request. Carlos Trindade, the duty manager, was very helpful and understood our needs. This hotel is simply amazing. Mr. Trindade provided a private tour of the premises, and explained the themes that govern the decoration and naming of the rooms (all related to wines in the Douro region). The views of Porto from everywhere in the hotel are gorgeous. The hotel concept is palpably British. The main public rooms and the decor are reminiscent of British clubs, though it is not at all stuffy. Overall, this is a first-rate hotel that I would give the highest possible recommendation. Muito obrigado, Yeatman!

My wife and I went there for a week-end. The view of Porto is exceptional and every room has a perfect version of it; this is an advantage of being in Vila Nova de Gaia and not Porto itself: you have a picture perfect view of the city. Walking to Porto itself is easy but bring sensible shoes. The rooms are very well appointed and there is plenty of space in the hotel so it never feels crowded (it was 100% occupied during our week-end); but the most important element is the staff! They are extremely helpful, friendly, consistent and efficient. Breakfast is very good and the tasting menu at the originally named restaurant "The Restaurant" is very very good, do not miss it. The Spa is also one not to miss. We had one of these treatments that you remember for a very long time.
