Hotel Shoppingtown in Doncaster (Melbourne)
The Hill upon which the huge Doncaster Shoppingtown (shopping centre) complex is built, these days with high rise apartments opposite, can often hide a great hotel that has been quenching the thirst of locals living north of the Dry Area (around Box Hill).
Commanding a brilliant view west to the City of Melbourne, the Hotel Shoppingtown is on the lower side of the road, where the bottleshop is the only visible entrance to this Hotel/Motel facility off Williamson's Rd (which becomes Tram Rd and then Station St, heading south of the intersection of Doncaster Rd)
People often confuse this corner as the commencement of Manningham Rd - but that road doesn't start until about two blocks north of the Hotel, but has the appearance of being one road - all very confusing. The Hotel is just one block north of the Doncaster Rd intersection!

The Hotel has long looked after local business people who enjoy the quiet ambience of the side bar after work. Below that, lies a huge restaurant area with grand glass arches providing views to the city beyond, which looks brilliant at sunset with the lights of Melbourne spread below.
