If you're thinking about making the trip, here's a list of the top 10 hotels in Blackpool, as ranked by users on TripAdvisor:
A beachfront hotel with rooms starting at about Â£44 around New Year, with free WiFi, parking, and breakfast included.
Situated on the seafront with prices from Â£25 per person (though likely to be more at New Year), including "a very English breakfast".
This is a hotel for families and couples only, with rates starting from Â£15 per person - though, again, New Year may well see you paying more than double that rate.
Rooms start at about Â£59 a night, depending on who you book through and for which dates. Reviewers praised the quality of its rooms and the friendliness of its staff.
One of the more comfortable options. Rooms at New Year look to cost around Â£90 or more depending on what you want.
This is a hotel that pulls out all the stops at New Year, so a good place to stay if you want to make it a big celebration. A three-night stay from the 30th to the 2nd with a full programme is available for Â£260.
A popular place to stay on the seafront, so you may struggle to get booked. Sea views, free internet, a good location and a breakfast buffet are on offer.
A four-star hotel, complete with a fitness centre if you want to burn off any festive pounds. But expect to pay upwards of Â£100 a night at New Year.
Billed as a "quality-yet-affordable" hotel, rooms here are reasonable - but at New Year you will probably have to book for a minimum of three nights, costing from Â£135 in total.
An option if you're pushing the boat out, this comfy and colourful hotel offers three and four-night deals which include a New Year House Party, ticket to the Blackpool Tower, other festive events, and half board. Three nights will cost you Â£366.
