Best location with amazing view

Posted 12-May-2014
Pros: Location, view
Cons: In a 5 star hotel they should ascertain that items in the room are not broken. I had a broken lamp and soapdish, a broken lock leading to the balcony
Location: beautiful view of Porto. Excellent location to do a tour of Taylor's and other Port Houses/Caves
Very helpful staff who fixed things right away. I arrived at 2:00 a.m. and the lock leading to my balcony was broken - not a safe situation They sent someone to change the lock right away but you would think that this would have been checked before my arrival. I was expecting to give this hotel 5 stars but it is only 4 because of the broken things in the room. I have never seen a chipped/broken soap dish in a 5 star hotel before. Considering the fact that this is a newer hotel, one would think that someone would be on top of such things.

Best hotel in Portugal! Yes, it's that good!

Posted 09-Feb-2014
Pros: This hotel provided a great environment for relaxation and fine dining at the end of a three week, very active European vacation.
Cons: A few times the service at Dick's Bar was slow and indifferent. It was the only time we had to flag someone down to get something.
Location: Walking, the hotel is 5 minutes from the Douro River waterfront and all the port houses of Porto, and 10 minutes from the long distance train station.
We stayed here for four nights at the end of our three week, very active European vacation in order to relax and catch our breath. And that is exactly what we did here! I cannot recommend the Yeatman Hotel enough. Our room, the smallest offered at this property, was more than large enough for my husband and I. The bathroom was huge - we had a great shower and a sunken bathtub large enough for two people. We eat many meals onsite (breakfast buffet and the Dick's Bar food,) and it was all delicious. We did splurge on a dinner at the restaurant our last night there and it was amazing. The wine and food pairings were memorable and we had one of the best meals of our trip (and this is after a week in Paris!). We also took advantage of the onsite "vino-therapy" spa facilities and I recommend purchasing a day pass for the "Wellness Circuit". This involves unlimited soakings in a steam bath, dry sauna, Roman bath, and ice bath. What a great way to end our trip! We did leave the hotel to explore Porto our first full day in town and had a blast. The Yeatman Hotel is withing 5 minutes of the Douro River waterfront and the port houses, which offer great low cost tours and samplings of their wine.

5 star all the way

Posted 15-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
This is a wonderful, luxury hotel that everyone should stay in at least once in their life. The staff are extremely friendly and keen to make your stay memorable. Service can be a little bit "on portugal time", but other than that, I could not fault this beautiful hotel. I will most defiantly be coming back to stay here again to enjoy all the delights the Yeatman has to offer.

Good Hotel, Great View, Near Port Houses

Hotel clean and good service. Great view across river of Porto. Not much in surrounding neighborhood except port tasting. Too expensive. Cold Pool. Nice rooms.

truly 5 star hotel and service

Posted 07-May-2013 on Hotels.com
We had an amazing stay but only one night- wish it was longer. We stayed in several 5 star hotels in Portugal and while the others I would have called a 3 star, this was truly a 5 star hotel.

Yeatman Sept 2012

This hotel is excellent for wine and port lovers. Near location to central Porto - a bit hilly for elderly to walk. Superb service and magnificent view.

The perfect choice for a stay in Porto

Posted 21-Aug-2012 on Hotels.com
Even though the hotel is in Vila Nove de Gaia, it overlooks the river and Porto. Its a very short walk over the bridge, but you have incredible views as you enjoy the pool or breakfast (not included, but worth it). the hotel was immpeccibly clean and beautiful. Rooms were huge, service was excellent. Overall great value and perfect location.

Beautiful Porto

Posted 02-Jun-2012 on Hotels.com
Great new hotel with great accommodations with a wonderful view of the old city of Oporto. Incredible indoor and outdoor infinity pools and a world class spa. Spacious well appointed rooms and common areas. Terrific pastries and fruits, plus more at breakfast. Hotel is not in Porto itself but relatively easy to get to town via a number of options.
