I'm currently with Plusnet on 76Mb BB, use two Chromecast Ultras with Ethernet adapters at home and when away a Gen 2 with mobile BB usually '3' via a 5GHz MBB Mi-Fi, no issues.
What are both your speeds?

If his broadband speed is fine then start looking at the wifi speed between the router and Chromecast.

Apparently you can use the app below to test your Chromecast speed.

Would the layout of the house and the distance between the router and Chromecast (and other factors like the construction of the walls) not play a big part in the situation you describe of different performance quality in different houses?

Yes

This is one reason to separate the 2.4GHz network from the 5GHz network if you router allows it, devices have a habit of selecting 2.4GHz, even a fair 5GHz signal will out perform 2.4GHz signal by quite a large margin
Hes gettin a new router soon as part of sky upgrade..his current dl speed about 30mps
