De vere. It's near the zoo and model village, and out of the town centre. It has a pool as well. More expensive than most blackpool hotels, but the town centre is not great for kids later in the day due to the stag and hen dos. You should be able to get a bus or taxi with relative ease into the town centre.
sorry can't recommend a hotel but wanted to warn you that there are a lot of hen and stag do's at the weekends. Last time we went to the lights (quite a while ago) they were all drunk by 7pm and flashing boobs and bums.
