Hatfield’s historic Comet Hotel has completed a multi-million pound refurbishment programme. Sensitive to the original features of the art deco Grade II listed building, guests can now enjoy a beautiful combination of modern day comforts and trendy art pieces against a backdrop of period architecture.
The Comet Hotel London Hatfield gets its name from a locally built aeroplane. The de Havilland Comet DH.88 was developed to take part in the 1934 England Australia MacRobertson Air Race and having flown on to win the iconic race in record breaking time, the Comet became known across the world.
The Comet Hotel opened in 1936. The design of the building was influenced by the emerging technology available at the time and was built in the style of Streamline Moderne, which is a late form of Art Deco. The unusual shape of the property is easy to explain; it was built around the footprint of the record breaking aeroplane.
Following the refurbishment programme, the Comet Hotel pays homage to the golden era of air travel, glamour and sleek design.
