We treated ourselves recently to 2 nights in a chalet. Extremely underwhelmed by this so-called luxury unit. No refrigerator, tiny tv, poor bathroom lighting, dated 1980s bathroom appointments and very little space for clothes etc. the whole unit was 'tired' and needed refurbishment.
However, the chef is a gem and we had 2 lovely dinners and were well looked after by wait staff. Breakfast, unfortunately, was poor with cheap jams, impossible to open cereal boxes and poor choice of breads. We were embarrassed to have to share breakfast time with overseas guests who seemed also taken aback at the miserable breakfast choices.
Overall, not a good ad for our beautiful fishery and should not be advertised as luxury in any sense. We have paid less for 5 star accommodation - this would be 3 star at the most.
