Have been using NatWest Offshore as my primary bank while living in the UK for a year with no major issues. My relationship manager is responsive, international outgoing wire transfers (which can be sent online) go through quickly (credited at a recipient bank as quickly as 30 minutes, once), and my debit card makes spending and withdrawing cash in the UK as easy as banking onshore. Opening the account was painless (although having a referral probably helped). My only issue has been a poor foreign currency conversion rate on one transfer, after which I switched to sending my remittances in Sterling, and the rest went through with no further issues. I recommend Natwest Offshore to those who qualify.
