I visited Amangalla Hotel for a mid morning cup of tea with 3 friends, two foreigners among them. I thought this was the best place to start off our day trip to Galle where I grew up. The table shown to us on the verandah was full of ants probably attracted to the flowers on the small vase on the table, and when informed the waiter just put the flower vase on another table, without even bothering to wipe off the ants from our table. My guests ordered milkshakes and a lassi while I had a cup of tea.The milkshake and the lassi ordered by the guests were not of good quality. The milkshakes were dilute and watery and the lassi tasted horrible, according to my guest. It was a disappointment from the start. The waiters were smiling and polite, but the drinks and service reflected the inadequate training of the staff and low standards of the hotel. All the reviews I've read here are good ones, so I am not sure whether bad reviews get published or not. But I think it is my duty as a Sri Lankan to warn others who may be mislead by the good reviews.
