I stayed twice in July 14 with a group of 7 while transiting Honiara. The Chester was clean, comfortable and convenient. The group had both twin share standard rooms and my wife and I had a self contained room. The rooms are spacious, the amenities basic but clean and well maintained. They have flyscreens and ceiling fans. Self contained rooms... More

Honiara is expensive, and the standard room on offer here is as cheap as it gets. The Resthouse is basic but very clean and tidy, with friendly housekeeping staff who will help you with your washing! The kitchen is very clean, and rules about no alcohol or betel but chewing are clear. The Brothers were friendly and helpful. This Resthouse... More

I've stayed in a number of hotels and guest houses in Honiara, and Chester (along with St Agnes) is my favourite. 'Standard rooms' are relatively small but sufficient (the rooms at St Agnes are much larger). The 'self contained rooms' are good value for money by Honiara standards - each has a large sleeping area with wardrobe, double bed and... More

Family rooms with bathroom and Kitchenette or twin rooms with shared facilities. Bedding is clean and house keepers clean room on request. This is a safe place to stay due to presence of brothers. It is not... More

We stayed at Chester Resthouse for a week. We enjoyed our stay. The Resthouse sits on the side of a hill above the Mendana Ave in Honiara. After climbing up the steps you arrive at a long verandah with rooms on one side and facing out over Honiara and the harbour. We had a Self Contained family room which had... More

I am a little late providing this review. I stayed at the Chester Resthouse 22June12 to 26June12 after being on a live-aboard dive trip. I found the Chester to be a pleasant surprise, safe (24 hr security provided by the Brothers), the brothers were very helpful, and very clean. I stayed in one of the private rooms. If you are...

I stayed at Chester between a late arrival flight and early departure flight so cannot give this establishment a full review. However, it was adequate for my needs. My room was a small room with two single beds and a ceiling fan, which cost $220SBD. Pros: - The Brothers were friendly, as were other guests - Bathrooms were clean -... More
