An auction is set to be held at Trump Turnberry’s hotel to sell off all the old fixtures and fittings on Thursday as work gets underway on Donald Trump’s transformation of the 5 star building.

One hundred and three bedrooms are being upgraded in the South Ayrshire hotel along with a whole host of other features.

Donald Trump has entrusted auctioneers Wilsons of Dalry to sell the goods to whoever wants a piece of Turnberry’s history.

Bob Chambers, commercial manager at Wilsons Auctions, said: “We are looking at about 100 bedrooms and the sale will include all the fixtures and fittings.

“This will include 32-inch plasma televisions and all the bedroom furniture, including cabinets, lanterns and lamps. It’s everything you’d expect to see in a five star bedroom.

“Also included will be pictures and prints from the bedrooms and hall areas.

“All this stuff was renewed about five years ago under the previous owner, so it’s all good quality as one would expect.

“We expect it will attract a lot of interest and that people will come to buy a bit of the Turnberry Hotel. We are expecting a lot of interest from overseas as well.

“There will be a large quantity of these assets.”

There will be a chance to view the items on Wednesday September 30 at the hotel between 5pm-9pm with the day of the auction taking place between 10am-4pm with the auction getting underway at 4pm.
