We are off to Calais in November (hopefully) to stock up. Does anyone have any recommendations...shopping, eating, places to stay (we need a quadruple room)or advice.

Faith,
we stopped at hotel l'escale just outside Calais on our way back from the Vendee. We've used it before, and its a really nice, small, logis de france. Very handy for Calais & Boulogne. Its got a little kiddies playground and a very good seafood restaurant. They do have a quadruple room, which costs 420 FF per night. They also have a website - I think its hotel-lescale.com, and we booked our rooms via e-mail. Not sure about anywhere else in Calais, as we generally just pass through, but we did get a brochure on the way in. There is a website covering the whole of northern france, but can't remember the name, scan for Calais & you'll find it.

If you get a chance go to Le Channel (yeah, not very original I know) for lunch or supper. Fantastic fish restaurant that I was introduced when I had to go over to Calais for work. Was taken there by the Calais Press Officer... and have since been back about four times. Brilliant set menus varying in price from about £13 to £40 (last time I went which was about 2 years ago) - definitely worth a visit. Not sure how child-friendly the place is though as didn't have one at the time!
