US -> UK

I'll be in England for a week, staying in a hotel, and I want to bring along my hair dryer and straightener, so I have some questions as to whether I'll be able to use them.

1. What voltage do they use, 230?
2. Provided I get an adapter, will the higher voltage fry my devices?
3. Have you ever used a US appliance in a UK hotel, and if you have, has it worked properly?
