Welcome to our Hospitality Hub’

At The Cumberland, we believe in a kinder approach to commercial lending

That's why we offer a fully relationship-managed service via a single point of contact from day one, ensuring you have a familiar touch point every time you need to speak to us. No call centres, no robots – commercial customers have access to a specialist lending expert dedicated to the needs of you and your business.

But that’s not all. With over 20 years of hospitality lending experience, our award-winning team of experts will be on hand to support you and your business every step of the way. What’s more - we’ve got real people making real decisions for real people like you, which means we consider each case on an individual basis.

We offer a range of hospitality lending solutions, specialising in hotels, B&Bs, guest houses and holiday lets. Browse our hospitality hub below for real stories, industry insights, top tips and more.

Kinder Banking... It's in our nature.
