I'd like to write a review about how lovely it was to sit and have a drink here, but they turned us away. Granted we were a little sweaty having stomped around the fort but we were respectably dressed and no strangers to high end hotels. We were told "it is for reservations only today", despite being rather empty at... More

We had high tea at the Amangalla: the staff would not let us use one of the many empty dining tables, as they said they were exclusively for "dining", so they directed us instead to a coffee table, where there wasn't enough space for all of us. After a while we were given a larger table outside with no tablecloth.... More

Beautiful boutique hotel. Staff are super attentive and nice. the pool is beautiful...had the best swim ever under a tropical pouring rain. The only complain is about the service at the restaurant. Servers are not very attentive. We waited for more 20 mins for our orders taken and then another 20mins for the morning tea. However, overall experience is super.

This is the kind of small hotel u never want to leave. the building is simply fantastic. the atmosphere is transporting. The pool and library are the best in the common areas. lovely and helpful staff always ready to do their best. Amangalla, thank you for 3 fantastic days in Galle.

The hotel is gorgeous, the service is outstanding. Yaseeth the butler we had for our stay is great, we felt at home and had a wonderful time. The restaurant is delicious, my only comment is the amount of time taken to serve the food, otherwise I have no complaint whatsoever and would extremely recommend the hotel.

We have just spent 3 nights over new year at the Amanwella . It was our first trip to Galle and our first stay at the Amangalla. We think the hotel is fantastic. It is a beautiful gracious historic building which had been sensitively restored. The new areas including the swimming pool have all been carefully considered and work well... More

Great views of the ocean and a smashing veranda to stop for a drink. Not cheap by Sri-Lankan standards but delivers for the money. Really good stop for dinner, well cooked, served and attention to detail is a joy.

It's difficult to fault a hotel like Amangalla, since this is not just a luxury hotel, but a graceful and classic hotel with centuries of history. The furniture in the rooms were perfect copies of the original one. The mattress was first class. The floor was 350 years old so when walking on it, some noise was expected but it... More
