Chapslee echoes a lifestyle which is now a thing of the past. ‘The Chapslee Experience’ has been described by many as ‘extravagant and gracious’, as also ‘thoughtful, meticulous and tasteful in every detail’. Chapslee has been acclaimed for its ‘unstinting hospitality’ and ‘uncompromising standards of service’. An ambience of gentility and finesse pervades the air which is personified by the exemplary and courteous conduct of the staff. Bells to call ‘room service’, bed tea served in fine bone china, dinner in an old fashioned dining room with gloved bearers, fire places with log fires to take the chill away, beautifully adorned tray tables with silver tea services for evening tea, whisky, Gin and Tonic served in cut glass decanters and hot water bottles or electric blankets to warm the beds, are some of the many elements which have endeared our guests over the years to the warmth and gracious hospitality at Chapslee.
