I would never try using a dual voltage curling iron from the US in the British isles, I would buy one when I get there, they are not expensive. Not worth the risk of blowing a fuse. A dual voltage hairdryer would be fine. Better still, change your hairstyle.????
I am on this great tour ( presently kicking back editing photos and emailing with a glass of wine after touring, walking , and eating lunch...). I don’t use an iron, flat or curl, and use the hotel dryer which is located in all sorts of interesting spots outside the bathroom! None of those areas, so far, have had very good lighting. The group’s biggest challenge ( and chuckle) has been dealing with the bathrooms! Light switches are in weird places, buttons on the outside wall start the shower, one might need a PHD to figure out the shower at Langdale, there are no extra magnifying mirrors ( the mirrors might be a big magnified, but not what I need for good vision). A number of the ladies have made a pact to tell each other if our make- up is askew and some have given up on makeup altogether! And then there were those color light displays in the bathroom in the Sheraton! So, maybe British has a point about adopting a new hairstyle!! Hah!

Ah yes, fond memories of the lighting system at the Sheraton. Three nights there and we never did figure those out. Even the TD said he couldn't help. The worst part was my husband would be hitting switches by the bed and I'd be by the room door panel so we could never figure out what combination did the trick.
Don't remember a problem with the Langdale except that the safe didn't work like any other we'd seen so my husband (who's allergic to written instructions) immediately locked himself out of it and had to call the front desk. On the other hand they had fantastic Sticky Toffee Pudding.
