Fantastic hotel!

Reviewed 13 november, 2021

We had a great 3-night stay at the Yeatman. First of all, the views over Porto are stunning. And whilst it is across the river from Porto, it is a 5 minute walk to most of the Port Wine lodges and the riverside in Vila Nova de Gaia, and only 15 minutes into Porto's City Centre itself. The gastronomic restaurant is really great - creative modern cuisine but rooted in the local traditions and products (great wine list too, of course) - also we loved the fact that we got to spend a bit of time in the kitchen during the meal. The other restaurants (Orangerie and Dick's bar) are actually pretty good too. The rooms were spacious with nice balconies (and again that view!). Whilst it was too cold to use the outdoor pool, the indoor pool was really appreciated after a day of walking up and down the streets of Porto. Also enjoyed a massage one afternoon. Efficient and friendly service, lots of space (it never feels crowded). Truly great in all aspects. And of course we never tired of the views, by day or night.

Phenomenal hotel. Exceptional service, extremely professional and well trained staff and absolutely immaculate. The restaurant was also world class and the bar provided live first rate music, including a pianist. DO NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE IN PORTO!! You will be throughly disappointed if you do, as we experience. There is only one direction after The Yeatman and that’s down!

Wonderfully furnished interior with splendid views of the Douro and city

Reviewed 25 october, 2021

We had noticed the Yeatman's prime position on a previous visit to Porto, and after seeing a positive travel review we decided that it would be an appropriate location to spend our 40th wedding anniversary. Visually, it is a first class experience. It is obvious a lot of time and expense has gone into ensuring the interior design is interesting, elegant and eye-catching. Our balcony/patio was large and provided a perfect view of Porto, and of the river, which was great. The only drawback was that - as with all rooms - you are North facing (as the hotel is specifically positioned to look towards the Douro) and so sunshine is frequently only found in corners of your patio at this time of year. Staff were generally excellent. Although, our anniversary day was dampened slightly by our experience of the 'sparkling afternoon tea'. Having booked in advance, we duly arrived to sit on the terrace of Dick's bar, dressed in our finest, only to have to wait... and wait. Sparkling wine arrived first, followed by coffee, and finally, 47 minutes after being seated, we were served fancy sandwiches, scones and cake, by which time our coffee was long cold. No explanation was provided, and only sporadic promises of, "another ten minutes", "another fifteen minutes" were made...and not kept. Anyway, I did sense a degree of embarrassment from some of the staff, especially as the terrace was not particularly busy at that time, and the acknowledgement of this dip in standards was made when we checked out and discovered our 'afternoon tea' had not been charged. Breakfast was good, the service overall good - if at times a little fussy - and there was a large outdoor terrace to eat and drink covid safe. We did not use the Michelin star restaurant, as neither of us are fans of that kind of thing. A short walk down the hillside leads you to many riverside eateries, some of which were extremely popular, good, and after queuing for a while, accessible. Overall, our stay was pleasant and comfortable. Would I go back? Probably not. Some people take their dogs on holiday with them. And there were far too many allowed here, including some being carried into breakfast by their owners to eat with them!

Absolutely Fantastic!

What a terrific hotel in Gaia (directly across from Porto and an easy 15-minute walk across the bridge). The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. We loved the room we booked. Very clean linens and gorgeous décor with a great view of the river. We sat on the balcony every evening before heading to the hotel’s bar “Dick’s Bar” for wine before heading out to dinner. So many hidden inside and outside areas at the hotel. We spent a lot of time there. Really beautiful hotel. The best part of our stay at the hotel was the team who worked there. They were amazing. They were extremely friendly and always eager to help with everything. The team worked together on everything. It was a truly terrific. Every one of them always had a smile on their face. They were there to help in any way we can. One night we asked for a taxi to take us into Porto for a dinner reservation and the nice young guy went inside to chat with the concierge and they came out and asked if we would be interested in a different adventure into the Porto. We were like, sure, what’s kind of adventure. They explained they had an old London Taxi that they use here and there and that he could take us over in that. I could not believe it. What an incredible offer. We were lucky enough to have that happen to us twice while we were there. What fun we had in that taxi. What a a nice young man he is. The hotels entire team was top notch, friendly and extremely professional. We spent time every evening before heading out and about for dinner either at their bar or on the patio for a bit of food and drink and we came back after our dinners out to wind down for the evening. I wish I wrote down the names of these incredible staff members because they were outstanding. Every day we were there we did eat/drink some sort of meal at the hotel (i.e. breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, etc.) Our breakfast was included, and it was delicious. We honestly can’t say enough about the hotel, it is fantastic. There is no doubt we will go back to The Yeatman in Gaia (Porto) on our next visit to Porto and we highly recommend it!! We loved Porto and absolutely plan to be back there and stay at The Yeatman! All the best, George & Donna from New York

Loved their 2 star Michelin restaurant and the views!

We spent a few nights here for our honeymoon with our small dog. The property is across the river from Porto with stunning views of Porto throughout the property. Porto is about a 15 minute walk across the bridge. If you like Port wine, this is the place to stay! It is on the same side of the river as most of the famous Port wine houses such as Grahams and Taylors (which is across the street). We were blown away by how delicious their on site Michelin restaurant was. It is one of our new favorites from around the world. The room was huge (we booked a suite) and had a large terrace overlooking Porto. The beds were comfortable and the bathtub was huge. *The only issue was the WiFi didn’t work initially though after much hard work on the hotel’s part they sorted it out. We cannot wait to return.
