If I'm being honest I wouldn't rate Chester House massively. Location is great- muswell hill is a lovely area. The actual accommodation is basic, does the job but I do feel like it's very expensive for a mediocre place. The main staff aren't very friendly, they didn't put me at ease at all when I first arrived, and it feels like even asking them for you parcel (which is delivered to the office) is too much work for them. The only nice staff are the cleaners and the people in the kitchen! However the food again isn't great, it's like having school dinners all the time. Sometimes you'll chance upon a great meal, but overall it's bland, or beige and often doesn't take into account allergies. I think this could be to do with budgeting, however, as the guy who runs it is so passionate about food, they probably aren't seeing much of the fee we spend. Noise carries so easily I can't remember the amount of times I've been woken up by someone else's alarm.
