Quality self service windows VPS?

So the company's staging boxes are currently run in house by the internal IT department. Their VMware infrastructure is over capacity and performance is being effected on our staging servers.

We've got approval to move our staging servers out to 3rd party hosting now, however I'm unsure of  a good provider to use.

NTT - way too expensive for staging servers
Amazon - cheap, but variable billing is a headache for me and I'd prefer fixed costs

I was hoping for a mid range UK based VPS host who whilst can offer technical support, can also offer an entirely self-service experience, with virtual KVM, hard reset options and firewall controlled by a web interface.

Can anyone recommend me one?

Take a look at RackSpace.  They are based in San Antonio, TX, but do have 2 data centers in the UK.  Haven't used them myself (we're still all internal and plan on staying that way), but I do know a few people who use Rackspace, and they are satisfied.
