We were made very welcome (thank you Tommy); the room was spacious (but dark) ; free wifi; quite a good breakfast; very secure parking.

Needed a place to spend a night on the way to Windhoek. Drove around Okahandja looking for a suitable place and found this gem. Very comfortable and clean. Left early in the morning and the breakfast box packed was a real treat!! Really good value for money.

The owners made me feel almost a part of the family and are very relaxed and freindly. The rooms are more like free standing studio apartments and are not attached...

We are so glad we stayed at Sylvanette. The room was spacious and even had a kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and the shower excellent. The price was very reasonable. The breakfast was cereals, fruit, yoghurt, bacon, eggs, juice and toast. Just what we needed to start our day! The wifi worked well. Flip, the owner, was very friendly and...
