We got very lucky at the Continental Parkhotel — we stayed over for a single night mid-week and were upgraded to a prestige room. It didn't disappoint. The view of the town and the lake was amazing, the tub was luxurious, and the bed was ornate and comfortable. What a treat! We enjoyed the room so much that we cut short our evening plans in Lugano to spend more time there.
Also a treat: the buffet breakfast in the hotel's well-appointed dining area. Their tasty spread included tons of pastries and especially crispy bacon, which I devoured.
The hotel is a quick walk from the train station and another few minutes on foot to the shops and restaurants. The staff was terrific (they upgraded us, so I'm a little biased). We absolutely loved our stay.
About the annex: I had read here on TripAdvisor wildly positive reviews like mine from folks who stayed in the main hotel and equally enthusiastically negative reviews from folks who stayed in the annex. I didn't see an annex room, but I can confirm that the annex building itself is very close to the train tracks. I could see how that would hinder one's experience.
My advice: stay here, but chip in for a room in the main building.
