I don't currently have a hair dryer nor iron and ironing board available for my guests.
They're inexpensive items, so I could provide them pretty easily, though I'd have to figure out a place to store them.
I did have a guest inquiry a few days ago asking if there was an iron available. I responded to the inquiry that I did not have an iron but that I have been meaning to get one and promised the guest that I would have one for his stay. He asked a few more questions, then never booked the room.
So... I'm just curious if it's worth the expense to provide these items?

a hair dryer and iron seem weird so i put in a iron and a low cost hair dryer in the closet for business traveliers.
i have been renting out my apt and nobody ever opened the 2 boxes.
never have i seen a iron in a hotel.

I think you have answered your own question - a hairdryer and iron don't cost that much but take up lots of room, particularly if you are only bringing in hand luggage.
My guests mainly use the hairdryer but I have had some requests to use the iron.

A hair dryer & iron are inexpensive and having them in your property illustrate that you have thought of the little things that just may save the day for a guest. Many of my guests are visiting the area for a wedding or other formal event and an iron will help de-wrinkle their clothes from their suitcase.

Yes, a hairdryer is useful and about 30% of our guests use it - they also appreciate not having to bring one with them if htey are just coming for the weekend with hand luggage. Less so an iron - think we have only ever been asked once if someone can use one.

Well we are having work done in our house and there is a lot of dust so for tyhe last two groups of guests I have ironed all the bedding for the super king bed in the apartment. So even if the guests don't use the iron the hosts might
