The Big Blue is a lovely hotel , we've stopped there several times and its good value for money and the restaurant is nice as well .The hotel at the football club looks nice as well but I've not tried it yet . As has already been said the Sandcastle waterpark is really good fun .
So we're planning a big family trip up to the Blackpool Illuminations at the end of October - there will be dp, me and 2x ds's, my MIL and FIL and dp's brother, SIL and their 2 x children. Phew! So we'll need 4 - 5 bedrooms, a couple of which would preferably interconnecting as dp's brother's children are still little.
Any suggestions for decent hotel/B&B accommodation for a night, very near either end of the illuminations would be very gratefully received!
