The Yeatman is a spacious hotel in close proximity to many of the port houses of Vila Nova de Gaia. The hotel has the ambiance of a Four Seasons hotel--grand in scale and similarly well maintained and well staffed. Rooms, pool, lounge, and restaurant all have a commanding view of Porto across the Douro. The architecture is big and dignified,...

We chose the Yeatman because the Manager there is already know to us from the Cliff Bay in Madeira and he has an excellent reputation. We were delighted with the Yeatman. The rooms are light and comfortable, the facilities are excellent and the staff are simply wonderful We had room 119 which has a terrace and private access to the...

Quite possibly the most amazing hotel I have stayed in. The room is huge and amazing. Every room has an outdoor patio that overlooks the river. The staff is great. It is about a 20 minute walk to the other side of the river but a very nice walk. Wifi is fast, the view from the terrace bar is awesome....

Views wonderful. Rooms good...wonderful beds and linen. The food in main restaurant delicious and an experience. The staff were extremely helpful If you walk from the main town, you need a lot of puff, but you are using up calories to use in the restaurant. Porto itself is good for 2-3 days as not that much to do there, but...

Following a Backroads Cycling tour we opted for 4 nights in The Yeatman without much advance knowledge of the hotel or Porto other than it was a place to refresh after a week cycling hills and vineyards and coastal region of northern Portugal. We were blown away by The Yeatman's sense of place immediately upon arrival as the staff took...

If you are looking for THE best place to stay in Porto, The Yeatman is THE place but in Vila Nova Gaia. The view from our hillside room looking over the Douro to Porto was 5 stars and at night lots of stars out. Service is impeccable, and the price is a commitment but with all the comforts you need...

The hotels website does not do justice to the location, views of the city and river or the food and service. We have stayed in dozens of Relais and Chateaux hotels arond the world and this is one of the most impressive. We stayed in suite 501. Incredible views day and night from the balcony, very large room. The concierges...

This hotel is located across from Porto on the opposite side of the Douro river in Vila Nova Gaia, which is THE best place to be at since you get to enjoy the unbelievably gorgeous view of Porto itself, and you're a ten minute Taxi drive away from the center of the tourist area of Porto. On the plus side,...

The Yeatman is not actually in Porto, but across the river from it. This means that it provides spectacular views of the city, especially as every room has a large balcony or patio with river view. Even the standard rooms are a good size, the staff are unfailingly helpful, the breakfasts are superb, and the tasting menu in the more...

We were the very first customer in the brand new suite 300 at the Yeatman. Just AMAZING!!!!There is no better view on Porto. Great food, fantastic wines, a lovely romantic room: luxury pure just to enjoy! Porto is a very relaxed destination and the Yeatman is the best place to stay for a great weekend and more.
