The Bakery Hill Hotel was a hotel in Ballarat, Victoria, <1857>




The hotel was one of two Bakery Hill Hotels in Humffray Street. This hotel was on the west side, three doors from the north west corner with Victoria Street.[1] Hargreaves identified it in 1940 as being a vacant block, No. 15. This is probably now part of Curtis Street or the McDonald's Restaurant car park.

The hotel was later named the Lusitania Hotel, which closed in 1891.[1]
