Trump Turnberry refurbishment unveiled
A new look Trump Turnberry has been shown off by contractors ISG following completion of refurbishment works at the Ayrshire golf resort.

These works entailed the refurbishment, remodelling and upgrade of 103 bedrooms, each with its own feature marble bathroom together with construction of a 6,000sq/ft ballroom capable of hosting 500 people whilst blending in with the historic architecture.

External improvements to the 109 year old property saw windows replaced and the ageing roof repaired as well as renewal of a coating of render.

Andy McLinden, ISG’s northern managing director, remarked: “With the British Open tee-ing off this weekend, the eyes of the world are set to turn to the area and Trump Turnberry offers a magnificent showcase for our expertise delivering world-leading hotel facilities. The attention to detail and exacting standards demanded by our customer have been more than met at the Trump Turnberry and I’m extremely proud that ISG has played a key role in delivering a luxury hotel that competes on a global stage.”

Public areas at the famous resort have also been given a facelift.

Nae surprise that thu lefties above ur moaning aboot it.

I mean, whare's thu zinc-clac extenshun and costa coffee drive thru? They cannae stomach it when somethin confrunts thur wurld view: blocky shapes, soullessness, anti-traditionalism, anti-beauty. So this hurts them. The ornament an beauty overwhelems thum. They cannae take it. So they lash oot. It gets cawwed pastiche becoz they hink thur wurds will stick an degrage ye. They're banking on the power ae thur insults bullying ye into submission. That's aw they've goat.

Glad the building stays true to its roots. Roots wich ur so much mar distingwished thun wit these lefties caw culture today.

Well done Trump.

0 Points: Nonsensical, repetitive ramblings, that make little sense whilst written in poorly constructed, "vernacular" text.

2 Points: "concrete lovin' brigade" / "lefties"

Hmm, only 2 points today, but at least there is no bigoted reaction regarding religion.

Lol, as much as I don't like Trump; I have to agree with Chantelle in saying I like this. Well done to the team behind it. Trump more than likely had nothing to do with the design.

Who’s moaning?

Not me!

Oh no…

I love coming across a scantily clad Roman God on my golfing perambulations.

I say, Ding dong!

with many years of experience in this type of work I would comment that the careful consideration employed in the design of the Ballroom extension to this property shows great respect to the original Architect. Modern architecture is commendable in its place but if an existing building has merit and worthy of such a substantial refurbishment then surely the original designers should deserve our respect. If a design is no good and not worthy of saving then demolish an build the best modern architecture has to offer and hopefully a hundered years or so on it will be worth saving!
