Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Sat amongst the port lodges overlooking the historic coastal city of Porto and the Douro River, The Yeatman is in the perfect location for port lovers and is only a short walk to Porto’s Old Town via the Dom Luís Bridge.

Rooms at The Yeatman Hotel

The rooms are sophisticated without being brash. Each individually decorated, they all incorporate photographs and artefacts from a famous Portuguese wine producer, paying homage to the country’s fine wine culture.

Open the traditional whitewashed shutters of the Cartuxa suite's bathroom and enjoy magnificent views of Porto from your bath. The Bacchus suite, named after the Roman god of wine, is the most opulent suite, boasting 150 m² of sheer luxury with a vaulted ceiling, fireplace and a freestanding copper Jacuzzi.

Food & Drink

Food and wine are essential parts of the Yeatman experience. Book a table at the Gastronomic restaurant, which has an imaginative menu showcasing the traditional flavours of Portugal, which are interpreted and presented with contemporary flair. Perfect for any oenophile, you can participate in one of the regular wine-tasting classes and be introduced to a wide range of tempting vintages from the Porto region.


Try out the unique Vinotherapie treatments on offer at the Caudalie Spa. Using antioxidant-rich ingredients straight from the vineyards, the spa offers a range of revitalising treatments, from barrel bath immersions to facials and massages.

Afterwards, enjoy a swim in the outdoor infinity pool or the indoor pool, which has panoramic windows from which to enjoy the views.

Activities at The Yeatman Hotel

After exploring the vineyards, head downtown to soak up some culture at the Majestic Café, which was founded 90 years ago and is said to have been frequented by J.K. Rowling while she was writing the first Harry Potter book. The Lello bookshop, said to be one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world, is a quirky place, with stained-glassed windows and an elaborate, curved central staircase.

Hop on a cruise on the Douro River or venture out to one of the many pretty beaches of the area.
