We chose this restaurant for the views (only had one day in Porto) and the food / wine. So, we loved the wine, the view, the attentive staff, the port from '66. The food - having been to such restaurants more often - we did not find too exciting. Not bad but not exceptional either, or innovative.

This is a class hotel! We stayed 4 nights, the last in a master suite, however the executive room was excellent. Great views across the river to Porto, this hotel has everything, but especially great service from all the staff. We tried the Michelin starred restaurant, which is definitely worth it!

Now I want to make it clear that we had a seriously bad experience in the hotel's gourmet restaurant (reviewed separately) so this is only a review of the hotel, not the fine dining restaurant. On arrival, you find yourself in a light, bright spacious Mediterranean villa. The room was equally spacious and bright with an enormous balcony offering a...

My wife and I stayed at the Yeatman for five nights over a weekend in late April / early May 2016. The concierge was helpful in advance of our visit, arranging for a sedan to pick us up at OPO airport upon our 2100h arrival. Check in service and baggage handling was friendly and efficient. Rooms are very nice ,...

This is a beautiful and stylish hotel, It's setting is second to none looking across to Porto, The rooms are quiet, spacious, superbly appointed and each has a private terrace. All staff were extremely helpful and gracious. The facilities are exceptional. One of the best and most extensive spas I believe I have ever visited all around the world. An...

The Yeatman is a top hotel by any standard and certainly the finest in Porto, allowing for the fact it's on the south side of the Douro, thus with fabulous views of the UNESCO old town on the opposite bank. All Relais & Chateau hotels are special and the Yeatman is no exception. Its location is unbeatable from the perspective...

Honeymoon visit and we were not to be disappointed. Lovely room which overlooked the river and had partial views of the bridges too. Clean, tidy, helpful staff and rooms immaculate which helped for a very restful stay. Breakfast in the Orangery and on the balcony was totally lovely and served buffet style with something for everyone. The only thing that...

Outstanding view over Porto and very good rooms. There is also the outstanding restaurant run by chef Ricardo Costa, I recommned it without any doubt. But the common areas are improvable, the outdoor pool does not fit a 5 star hotel. And breakfasts are mediocre, it has always been like that, I always complain. Both the variety and the products...

We stayed here with two small children for three nights and overall it is a very nice hotel and we had a good time. Here are the pluses and minuses: Pluses- Huge rooms, nicely decorated (although very traditional). Incredible service - every staff member , no matter what their role, knew more about the local wines than many sommeliers in...
