I have high tea, I asked them to turn off the fan, after asking like 10 times, finally, 30 minutes later, it had been turned off. The mosquitoes are everywhere so I asked for repellent and still waiting for it. The scone just dry dry dry, not fresh at all, is this Amam?

This is a very beautiful and elegant setting, lovely architecture, romantic, and very well staffed. It is of course pricey, and is a paricularly good location for afternoon tea

I admittedly had high expectations of this place since it came with a rave review from my Rough Guide, but evidently the author is not a foodie, or there is new management, or it was a bad night. While the atmosphere is beautiful -- exceptionally maintained historical lobby, well lit, classy interior -- the menu seemed to be from 20... More

portion is small but dishes are nicely cooked and well seasoned. Wine is way too expensive. Dinner service is much better than breakfast.

A great local food experience for any foodie person. The service was so great. The crisp white towels with a touch of lemongrass oil made this hotel memorable and made a difference, and that is the reason this hotel is high ranking on my list of hotels. I had a sunday buffet there and the local dishes were so authentic,tasty... More

We were staying in Galle Fort and came to the Amangalla for drinks one night. The staff were incredibly welcoming and the whole experience was lovely. We sat in the grand foyer, near a gorgeous Christmas tree they had made from dried branches, and had lovely cocktails. We'd have stayed for dinner (reasonably priced for a 5 star resort) if... More

Went there 1 Jan evening and this place tick all the right boxes. An amazing historical hotel with a beautiful open restaurant. However in an Amman property you would just expect more: 1. Our waiter was very nice but you feel from arriving that they have no clue what hey are doing. Missing 5!star service..: 2. Menu card could be... More

Best scones we have consumed in recent memory. A fine tribute to colonial influences past. Elegance, grace, splendour. Truly splendid. Great staff.

We had an excellent evening of cocktails and Rice & Curry at Amangalla. The food was excellent. The service faultless and friendly & the hotel itself (the public areas which we visited - did not stay here) is gorgeous. Not cheap, but a lovely place to dine for a treat. Highly recommend.
