Having had three superb stays at Trump Turnberry already this year we decided to make another booking today. However when I came to book I noticed that, for the first time, all rates (including reward & C&P stays)  have next to them :-

Base room rate excludes

  • RESORT FEE of GBP 20 Per Room / Per Night

I will leave brightlybob to advise whether or not having such mandatory fees included in the overall price is legal in the UK (it is certainly not legal to exclude taxes).

We decided not to go ahead with the booking, so the new policy has cost them one booking, but I guess they make the calculation that many people just won't notice.
