Resons please for the negative heat? It's free, it's genuine and i've subscribed free for the last 3 years and used the facilities. Only any use if you have a business but voting negative without a reason on this one is a bit daft

Great Thanks, used to access these in my last job. Handy base in a new city to check e-mail even if its not for business.

Thanks. I'm going to give this a try. I'm always needing reliable internet for work days out of office, and be good not to spend a fortune on coffee to legitemise using wifi cafes.

I put some heat... There is more value in your post than 1000's other in this site. Thank you!

Heat from me too. Have been wanting to try this out for a while as I am self employed and good to have somewhere to catch up on emails. Worth noting they usually have meeting rooms that you can hire so if you need to meet someone or make private calls this can be useful.

I am just about to sign up but take it there is no need to add card details and risk an automatic renewal next year?

It doesn't ask for any payment card details, just name, business, address, email, telephone etc, plus the name on the card (ie how you want your name displayed on the card)

And should we use a dodgy phone number to avoid sales calls?

Just got one thanks. Accidently gave a wrong mobile phone number on the application form just in case!

Just signed up also, thanks for this been wanting to try it for a while.

Worth highlighting it is worth £300 not £420 as it is £25 a month but still a great deal.

Also note that the access is to the Business Lounge. This looks like it can vary from seats in the reception area through to a mini airline style lounge with computer terminals. As a minimum you seem to get free tea/coffee and wifi. I guess some lounges will be better than others. But with 47 to choose from in London I am sure I will find one I like.

If you want an office desk/meeting room as shown in the pictures for each location then this is an extra charge with the Gold card giving you some discount on the normal rate.

Maybe worth a second card in a random name in case you have a friend or colleague who wants to come in too? As long as they don't ask for name ID when you hand over the card?

Sing up as Leslie Smith so you can get a male or female friend/colleague in if needed

So is this like an airport lounge where you can go in and sit in a sofa with free internet access and light refreshments? Is there an empty desk to sit at?

Hot! This is handy to have, cheers!

Depending on what business centre you use I think most have "small tables" as it's a lounge that you would be using, offices with tables cost to use. Here's a link about the lounges regus.co.uk/pro…spx

the free internet access and refreshments, are they properly free, is there any catch?. cheers

Doesn't seem to be. There are no stated time limits and as long as you aren't filling flasks with the free coffee then they probably don't really care what you do with the wifi.

Great freebie - thank you!
I'm slightly vague about the locations...they don't seem to mention the free internet/refreshments when they describe the individual venues. Does every place that's listed on the website have these facilities? It would be handy for a bit of catch-up while out and about, but I don't want to look like a fool and wander in somewhere that doesn't have a clue what I'm on about!!

only problem is it will say MR or MRS ect on the card, so the the name Leslie Smith is kind of useless lol unless you say your in drag X)

I want a place to meet clients, talk with them, show stuff on my laptop/tablet etc. I work from home, so that is out of the question, and I was looking for someplace more "professional" than Starbucks/Costa Coffee etc. Can you take other people in their lounges (1-2 max, no large groups) without problem?

When I signed up earlier it asks you to choose how your name is shown. Just go for first and surname. However T&Cs does state they could ask for photo ID. Probably something they never do but worth noting.

T&Cs state guests to the business lounge may be charged. If meeting people for business then I am sure the cost, as long as reasonable, can go through as a business expense.

Thank you! Heat added! Great deal!
Have you used the same code over the last 3 years or does it change from time to time?

It says the code is invalid now. :-(
Perhaps has been replaced with the Dell Vostro deal?

ah, you have to go via the correct regus.com/rbs link

The codes change as they run promos with the banks and business clubs etc

I'm heading to london soon with a few hours to spare. Would it be weird if I dress casually (jeans + sweater) and go in with 2 cabin sized luggages and stay for 2 hours just surfing the net?
I was originally planning on doing just that in a Starbucks.

Indeed, it can deducted as a business expense. However, it's even better if you can avoid incurring that cost in the first place!

So, I'm asking if someone has experience with this. I can't seem to find specific rules, is it up to the local manager's discretion, how much can they charge, etc. If it ends up being more expensive than, say Starbucks then it's not worth it for my case.

After all, I'm in an artsy, hipster industry and can get away with Starbucks!

PS: Heat from me anyway, because it's a great deal.
