the comfortable elegance of an English country manor, Chapslee was
originally built in 1835. With major refurbishing done at the turn of the
century. Chapslee has a magnificent interior with priceless artifacts.
Ornate brass beds, Belgian chandeliers, drapes from the Doge's palace in
Venice, delft tiled fireplaces and exquisite rugs, all combine to evoke
the hey day of another age.
Even the Burma teak used in the paneling belongs to the same shipment that was used for the interior of the Viceregal Lodge at Shimla . In time, Chaplsee became the property of Raja Charanjit Singh of Kapurthala, whose descendants now run it as a select hotel.
