Best hotel in Portugal! Yes, it's that good!Posted Feb 9, 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.

Good Hotel, Great View, Near Port HousesPosted Sep 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
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 servicePosted May 7, 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.

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 PortoPosted Aug 21, 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 PortoPosted Jun 2, 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.
