    Very good

    The loby bar , the pool outside the products in the room and the hotel that is new and well kept.

    The main retaurant seems to be a bot cold and pretensuos. The location is a little complicated to get in and out, more so out because in you have good signals on the streets of Gaia.The girls on the reception guest try to help with good disposition but some of them had very little expirience.

    In my view one of the best hotels in Europe and excellent value for money. The approach is a bit complicated, one needs a good satnav or should take a taxi.

    This place was excellent. At last a 5 star hotel that deserves the name, with all of the staff responding to whatever you asked. They give me a tour of the wine cellars. When I bought a bottle of wine for a shop, it was no problem for roo service to supply a corkscrew - then they went to get a wine glass specifically for that type of wine, and ice bucket. Small thing, but in ahotel in Madris when I asked for a cockscrew I got a flat no! The location might put you off given it;s across from Porto, but to be honest the hotel is so relaxing that I'd think you'd spend most time just relaxing there, in the pooll and gym, or tasting port nearby. Easily can say, best hotel I have ever stayed in. And the bed is massive.

    There was no hot food at the buffet breakfast, but you could have cooked brealfast (eg eggs benedict) brought to your room. However with the buffet breakfast including many meats, cheeses, vast array of friuit, and caviar and champagne, this is just a minor quibble.

    Superb

    Very spacious and set in a perfect location in the port wine cellars area and with a magnificent view of the Douro river and Porto old town. The spa is excellent, with 2 infinity pools and a large selection of baths, steam rooms and treatments. There is a gourmet restaurant and the bar and room service are open/available 24 hours. Free wifi. Peaceful and relaxing.

    Our suite could have had a few more amenities such as tea & coffee making facilities, an iPod dock/stereo and perhaps a dvd player.

    Superb

    Really 5 star: huge hotel, very big rooms, lots of staff, fantastic views over Porto (and of course correspondingly expensive).

    The hotel is quite strangely positioned: on foot, one has to climb a steep cobbled road; by car or taxi, the route is very roundabout; and there is no convenient metro stop. Food and drink is very expensive by Portugese standards (gin and tonic €10, for instance - the cost of a good meal in a local restaurant).

    We have rarely stayed anywhere more genuinely deserving 5*. The Yeatman is a superb and stylish hotel in a wonderful location overlooking the historic centre of Oporto from across the Duoro river in the traditional Port wine district. The rooms are beautifully appointed with balconies all facing the terrific view - incredibly peaceful and comfortable - best nights sleep in any city centre hotel we've stayed. Service is friendly, subtle and of a "can-do" nature - nothing too much trouble. The indoor pool & spa is incredible and the outdoor infiinty pool is larger than it looks in the pictures and is served by an outdoor bar. The bar & restaurant serve excellent food. All in all, terrific.

    Our stay was superb and there is nothing amiss at this hotel. Two minor quibbles - whilst the breakfast selection was very good (including champagne) any cooked orders are charged extra; discreet but insipid piped muzak seems to follow you everywhere and reaches its most intrusive at the bar. At a hotel of this quality, piped music is not necessary anywhere.
