Status: New - Written by Frances Osborne, the bestselling author of The Bolter, Park Lane is set in Edwardian London and tells the story of housemaid Grace Campbell and Lady Beatrice - two young women of very different social standing who both dream of breaking free from tradition and obligation. They know that suffragettes are on the march and that war looms, but at 35 Park Lane, Lady Masters insists that life is about service and duty. The book expertly delves inside one of London's most exclusive residences where the walls between two social worlds are crumbling and the lives of these two women are about to collide in a way they could never have imagined. This gripping and tense hardback brilliantly captures a deeply fascinating period of British life in which the normal boundaries of behaviour were overturned and the social hierarchy could no longer be taken for granted.

The responsibility fell on my shoulders to book our family holiday, but this wasn?t as easy as it...
Advantages: True five-star oasis of calm and comfort with a few tricks up its sleeve. Disadvantages: It would be somewhat churlish to nit-pick. Read the review!
...I have just returned, very happy, from the Hilton. I have often returned, happy, from a Hilton, but this has always been - and will always be - THE Hilton. The London Hilton on Park Lane has, always been "The Hilton" and this 28-storey icon is a London landmark that I have wanted to stay in for nigh on 30 years. This weekend, the dream came true. Nor was the bubble burst.
Advantages: great story and acting Disadvantages: none
