ABOUT

Occupying a breathtaking position overlooking the Douro River and the city of Porto, The Yeatman is located in the heart of one of Europe’s great wine capitals, the city which gave its name to Port. Home to British wine shippers for over three centuries, The Yeatman blends the finest Portuguese traditions of hospitality with a uniquely British flair for understated, stylish comfort.
Set in gardens, The Yeatman is a tranquil haven where guests can unwind enjoying the incredible panoramic views, extensive terraces and infinity pools.
The Yeatman provides an ideal base from which to explore the historic centre of Vila Nova de Gaia where the Port houses have aged and blended their wines for generations. A short walk onto the north bank across the Dom Luís bridge leads to the World Heritage historic centre of Porto with its fascinating architecture, traditional shops and authentic street life.
The Yeatman proposes timeless elegance, authentic detail and discreet yet attentive service from a knowledgeable and friendly team, creating individuality of character and effortless hospitality that ensures every guest feels welcome.
The 109 elegant and spacious guest rooms and suites offer a balcony or terrace with inspiring views and the ultimate in comfort. The three individual and exclusive suites, The Artist’s, The Bacchus and The Presidential Suite, provide the highest level of luxury in the city.
The Yeatman is a unique destination hotel presenting the best of Portuguese hospitality, culture, wine and gastronomy. The Yeatman’s location and natural link with Port wine make it a genuinely unique wine hotel - the first luxury wine hotel in Portugal. The classic decoration and unusual characteristics, including cultural exhibits and wine-related details, create individuality which set it apart as an independent family run hotel.
The Hotel presents a sophisticated wine programme involving over 100 wine partners who have given their name to a bedroom, providing decorative elements from their wineries and whose wines are listed on the hotel’s award-winning wine list. The Yeatman introduces the wealth and breadth of Portuguese wines by their regions, styles and personality. The wine cellar houses the most comprehensive collection of Portuguese wine in the world. Weekly wine dinners, co-hosted by a wine producer, present the wines and the best pairings for this unique experience. Other activities include a range of wine tastings, summer Sunset Wine Parties and the Christmas Wine Experience.
The Gastronomic Restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star in 2011 and its second in 2017. Its imaginative cuisine showcases the traditional flavours of Portugal reinterpreted with contemporary flair by award-winning Executive chef, Ricardo Costa.

Dick’s Bar & Bistro offers a casual menu with wines by the glass, cocktails and Ports, whilst The Orangerie, The Yeatman’s second restaurant, delights with its relaxed atmosphere and some of Chef’s favourite dishes.
The wine experience extends to the Spa with its programme of exclusive Caudalie Vinothérapie® treatments whose benefits are drawn from the grape and vine. Relaxation includes barrel bath immersions, Roman bath and relaxation room with panoramic views.
