Can someone help me please with a suggestion of a bank with good service? Also are there charges for holding an account? Thank you

If you are into online banking then Banco Sabadell is hard to beat for Brits. Your account will be set up to open in English when logging on. Their mobile app is also good 

Sadly, expect to be charged up to 120€ per quarter if a current account is all you require. Local branch managers have discretion so try to strike a deal

Conducting personal banking at any Spanish bank branch counter is a woeful experience. The system is probably the most inefficient in the world

Sabadell are great, no fee if you choose the right account/set up a DD every month (of €700 I think). Good online access & they print all the T&C's in English.

Revolute is online only. Wish I opened it straight away as you can transfer money from UK account - to sterling so no charge. Then, when you want € you change it on the App (no charge). Watch the exchange rate so you get te best deal.
