“Serviceable motel with delusions of grandeur”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Stayed here for two nights during the Latvian national holidays in early May, as a base for a wider tour of the Gauja National Park and the local '3 castles' walk. We paid €101 for an en-suite twin including breakfast, which was a little on the pricey side by rural Latvian standards, though Sigulda is a popular tourist spot.

It's a perfectly serviceable mid-range motel but appears to suffer from delusions of grandeur. The photos and description on the web site rather give the impression of a luxury spa resort, and it's clearly a popular eating spot for a certain bling-laden nouveau riche clientele (quite a few Bentleys, Mercedes and Escalades with personalised plates in the car park, and at least one peroxide blonde with chihuahua in the restaurant).

In reality, while the grounds are nicely landscaped, the motel is nestled between a petrol station, Hesburger fast food chain and shopping mall on a fairly busy road junction about 20 minutes walk from Sigulda bus & train station. The publicity photos are laughably selective - check out the location on Google Street View for the bigger picture!

The rooms themselves are on a par with a UK Premier Inn - i.e. clean, modern furnishing and reasonably spacious - though the walls in our separate complex were paper thin and we were kept awake until around 3 by the partying guests in the next room.

Breakfast was included in the rate and was average buffet fayre - certainly nothing exceptional. The evening meal in the restaurant on the first night was admittedly very good by motel standards, and we got the sense they do pride themselves on the cuisine - I'm guessing probably among the best in the local region.

Sigulda itself is a very pretty little town but the accommodation and eating options are relatively limited. The popular 3 castles walk is certainly worth doing (though I imagine very busy in peak season), but you could easily do this as a long day trip from Riga if you preferred.

All in all, a perfectly reasonable place to stay in Sigulda, but I'd recommend checking out other options in the area if possible.

Room Tip: The walls in the separate room complex are paper thin, but this may be true of the main block itself...

Comfort near road hotel. Best hotel restaurant in Sigulda. Although the road was near, sleeping was restful. Nice apple garden on inside hotel area.
Two parking lots. Free WIFI is only on restaurant area.
Hotel also had a sauna and jacuzzi.

The hotel is situated outside Sigulda, no nice walk to city centre.
The rooms are nice (without WiFi) and the food in the restaurant is good.
The hotel has a two large parking lots.
The personnel is friendly, special the reception.

We stayed here attending a wedding in a Milpils (nearby town). The staff were friendly and all spoke English well. The reception is staff 24-hours, with very helpful staff. The rooms are small, but clean. Our room came with two single beds, I think the smallest size bed you can buy (I'm not small, so I didn't sleep well). The walls and ceiling are wood, so you can hear just about everything your neighbors are doing.

Great pub though, but give the breakfast a skip.

The hotel is a bit away from the City of Sigulda. The staff is nice but not comfortable in English. When we arrived the wi-fi and the phone were not working but they were fixed the next day. The restaurant is the best in the area, which is not very a demanding standard.

I changed rooms immediately due to a rattling window but the receptionist was helpful. Sound proof windows but wooden walls and ceiling so I could hear every footstep of my neighbours. No air system and no English TV but wifi. Good restaurant for dinner.

Stayed here as part of tour of Baltic countries for one night. A pleasant enough hotel probably needs some updating. Our room was large on top floor. Hotel consists of blocks of rustic houses with number of rooms in each. Ate in the restaurant and food was very good. Fine for a night.
