The Spotswood Hotel Sky artwork celebrates the historic pub in Hudsons Road Spotswood. It was originally opened in 1888 as the Spottiswoode family hotel. John Spottiswoode built the hotel, but his father (also John) also built the suburb. He bought land that is now Spotswood in 1841, eventually dividing and selling it off.
You might know the Spotty Hotel for its food and friendly atmosphere, but the pub has an incredible history that includes hold ups, elite political links, arrests, bikies, strippers, strikes, and stabbings.
Conveniently located opposite the Spotswood train station, the area is a beacon for westies looking for amazing coffee and cafes. The revival of the Hudsons Street shopping strip and a proud, close-knit community has seen the area become a great place to live or visit.
