Porto is a cultural feast and The Yeatman is an ideal base from which to explore and enjoy this magnificent city, surrounded by just under 4 acres of private walled gardens. The Michelin-starred restaurant offers the very finest of local cuisine and an indulgent tasting menu, with expertly matched wines from the hotel's vast cellar.
This Porto hotel is owned by Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman, the world-famous port house, and boasts one of the world's most comprehensive collections of Portuguese wines. The hotel's strong association with wine rings through into the spa (although not so much in the drinking sense) at the hands of the Vinotherapists - who use specialist products with valuable antioxidant properties and offer a barrel bath treatment; bubbling water enriched with a conditioning grape extract.
Each of the 89 bedrooms and 20 suites are traditional and elegant and open onto a large balcony with dramatic views over the city. In The Bacchus Suite - with a slightly more eccentric twist - a rotating bed and round copper bathtub is certain to put a smile on anyone's face. Within a year of opening chef Ricardo bagged his prized Michelin star - creating epicurean delights, always perfectly complemented by the resident wine specialists. The exceptional team of staff make this hotel an absolute delight.
