Both the bathroom and bedroom were spacious, it was beautifully quiet outside, decor was both tasteful and artistic in an art nouveau/modern style, breakfast was included and decent by European standards, and there was AC, a refrigerator, and free wifi in the rooms.
While it was a welcome change from hostels and city life, it may been smarter to switch to a different hotel in Riga and just come out here for a day trip. Sigulda was only an hour away by hourly bus, for 1.50 lats. And we had to go back to Riga anyway, to catch our bus to Tallinn.
Note also that, I probably wouldn't recommend that a budget traveller go out of their way to come to Sigulda anyway, now that I've been there. Sigulda was a bit of a letdown for us (I'll try to write a separate review of Sigulda later).
Laundry service was available, but very costly (e.g., 4 lats or 8 USD for a pair of trousers). There were apparently cascading swimming pools and a sauna/jacuzzi, but we were surprised to find out that these would cost an extra 10 lats (20 USD) to enter. Taxis from the train/bus stations appeared to be a fixed price of 3 lats (6 USD). A taxi from Sigulda castle, which we did enjoy, was 4 lats (8 USD). There was a supermarket about a 5 minute walk away that was open from 8am to 10pm.
