Beautiful old colonial place for an afternoon cup of tea

We had a nice cuppa, and could easily gone back for dinner, looks and feels great, albeit a bit grand.

It's a fantastic old hotel with a beautiful restaurant, no doubt about that, and we truly enjoyed dining on the patio. But when reserving the table I thought this would be the best meal of the trip, which it wasn't. In fact, we had tastier Sri Lankan food for a fraction of what we paid here. Our curries weren't even... More

Amangalla is one of those places where as soon as you step through the door you're in another world and where you can leave the hustle and bustle behind to take in a relaxed - and well deserved I'm sure - meal. The interior is lovely with dark wood adding to the coolness and well prepared tables and meals, with... More

An elegantly and sympathetically restored colonial building steeped in history. Good food too and with all the attention to detail you would expect from an Aman hotel

Apart from one useless waiter inside the restaurant, the place is great. Beautiful location with all you could require. Great massage too.

Amangalla manages to achieve something which is nigh on impossible in Sri Lanka... skilfully blending excellent service, old world charm and elegant surroundings with modern contemporary hotel living. . We haven't stayed at this historic hotel yet, but if the food and service at its restaurant are anything to go by, we're sure that being a guest at this top... More

We had dinner here one night, and it was by a long way the best food we had in Sri Lanka. The Lobster Spaghetti is probably the best I've ever had anywhere! Staff we excellent, we stayed around to watch the Six Nations in the bar (on iPad - there aren't screens) and even though it got late and we... More

We only stopped for drinks, but the splendour of the hotel, the interiors all resplendent in it's original glory, it was truly a welcoming stop after the walk through the fort in the hot sun. The drinks were served swiftly and we were attended to very well.

Beautifully renovated, magical hotel. If you can manage the price try and stay there it's a wonderful experience. If not settle for drinks & dinner on the terrace or afternoon tea. It's a must see in the fort
