Banks - does anyone recommend any

Prompted by this thread http://www.accountingweb.co.uk/anyanswers/question/company-formation-agents

I tend to recommend my local natwest for local clients as I have had a very good relationship with the manager there. Barclays have been in touch but I get really frustrated by their constant cross selling. Natwest are much more discrete and I never feel harrassed by them.

Some people like the Co-Op and Santander free options. I have not used them myself but when I have seen them in action I have not been that impressed i.e. poor narrative when trying to reconcile transactions!

What are others experience. Any good recommendations/ good deals to be had?
