We were tired travellers when we arrived at 9pm at night but the staffs enthusiasm to make sure we enjoyed our stay and their hospitality which included pre-dinner drink and a beautifully presented dinner made us feel very special. The hotel is worth any amount of effort to get there - It is enchanting in that it takes you back... More

After visiting two National parks and resting at Rhishikesh what could be more comforting than arriving at Chapslee. The place is steeped in history and its lavish past and the service was unique. We spent two memorable days in this wonderful setting and would have wished for a longer a stay if time permitted. Shiranee from Sri Lanka.

An historic hill station mansion built in the 1800's, with impeccable service provided by well trained unobtrusive but always attentive Indian staff, reminiscent of Zero in the Grand Budapest Hotel. Enjoy G&T's, as part of the package, in the drawing room, while a coal fire keeps your spirits up. Dream of days gone by in the massive sitting room or... More

We have been to India several time over the years and have had many unique experiences but nothing as far as hotels go has matched our stay at Chapslee. The history of this home alone is enough to make the stay an adventure but then add the graciousness of our host, the wonderful staff, the many extras included and it... More

For an authentic and unique experience, you have to stay at the Chapslee in Shimla. You feel transported back in time and although you pay a price for this (on a par almost with five star hotels), every penny is well spent. The owner is struggling to maintain one of the last original wooden mansions from the Colonial period single... More

This review is coming quite late. However, there is an inner compulsion to share the fabulous experience we had at Chapslee with the fellow travellers, which makes me write this. Me and my husband stayed at this beautiful property last year and had the best time of our lives. Royal treatment, wonderful service, delicious food and overall a very friendly... More
