If you are a history buff and value premium top class hospitality this is the place. We stayed in Chapslee for 5 days and its been one of the best holiday stays. The house itself is steeped in old world charm, every single antique, photograph is well chosen and has a story. The hospitality of everyone working there is something... More

It was like living in a museum. But at the same time it was like staying in your friends' house - the owner is welcoming and atmosphere is very warm. We enjoyed a lot this experience including the kids. They loved the collection of weapons and coins as well as delicious food. The location is great with a lovely view... More

We stayed here for 4 days. Longer than we expected. The owner and his staff are very friendly and know what they are doing. There best interest is to give their guest a good service and nice Holliday. This shows in everything they do for you just to make you feel comfortable. Besides that the rooms are amazing.I make my... More

After nearly six hours slow progress in a very overcrowded toy train, followed by a further hour of our taxi driver fighting through the dead slow and stop of the much misnamed Shimla 'rush' hour, the gates of Chapslee closed behind us. In a second we had moved into another world. A world a century apart from the rush and... More

Where do we begin? Well when we walked in, being shown around by the charming Ms Alka, as we went from room to room all we could do was go 'Wow!' It is truly unique- I don't think there is anywhere like this left in the world. My husband and his cousin were re - tracing their grandparents steps- they... More

We were there in mid March 2014. The pomp and pagaentry of this house is so uniquely Chapslee. We were greeted warmly after a long drive from Delhi by Sharma. Special mention must be given to your staff for providing an efficient and memorable trip, particulary your service staff - Somnath, Subash and Deepak who have pampered us like we... More

Chapslee may well be one of the most complete experiences of the Britiish Raj which can still be found in India. It is a superb Victorian house, which retains all of the opulence and grandeur of those bygone days. The welcome and service from Reggie and his staff was such that we felt we were visiting old friends as house-guests,... More

This is not like staying in hotel. You stay in private house from another era, it is like staying in a museum but with servants and surrounded by beautiful antiques. Shimla was not warm when we arrived in March and the Chapslee had only just opened for the season, however the chill was soon taken off with fires lit each... More

So many reviewers have described this place as ‘Awesome’ ; An experience of a bygone era ; and with so many other words of admiration that I do not have any other synonym to add. But for my wife and I ,and our friends with whom we visited the place recently, it simply took our breath away. The understated opulence,... More
