The hotly contested accolade is awarded to hotels that have featured in the Condé Nast Johansens Guides and are based on guest nominations and surveys, and regional inspector reports conducted by Condé Nast Johansens.
CEO of The Yeatman, Adrian Bridge, commented, "We are thrilled to have won this prestigious award that is open to all hotels in the world. To have brought the prize to Portugal and to Porto in particular, is a great honour.”
Since opening in August 2010, The Yeatman has achieved a Michelin Star for its restaurant, been the recipient of the ‘Award of Excellence’ by US magazine Wine Spectator, won ‘Best Hotel’ at the Portugal Trade Awards in February 2012, and has received numerous awards for its extensive wine cellar s and its wine list. The city of Porto was recently named in the Top Ten Wine Destinations in Europe by Trip Advisor in October 2012.
Condé Nast Johansens remains the most comprehensive illustrated reference to annually inspected, independently owned hotels. With dedicated and highly trained Inspectors almost ten times as many properties have been assessed as appear in the Guides, in order to narrow the final selection down to, quite simply, the best selection of accommodation for independent travellers.
